Let’s kick this weekend off with a BEAUTYCOUNTER GIVEAWAY! Details to enter are below.
Last week, I took the boys to Wednesday night supper at our church. My husband was traveling, I hadn’t showered all day, and was feeling super crunched for time. But I knew I had to pull myself together to feel human before we went. After a quick shower, I was able to blow dry my hair AND put on makeup and make it in plenty of time. This is a win and I can definitely thank Beautycounter’s Flawless in Five makeup for being a solid wingman in the daily “drama” of motherhood.
I am not a cosmetic product junkie. I do not spend time wandering the make up counters and you won’t find my drawers full of forgotten expensive cosmetics. It’s just not something I have ever really been into. I hate buying products only to find I don’t love them. I definitely love getting solid recommendations from trusted friends on products they love!
If you are not familiar with Beautycounter, their mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone. They have a list of over 1,500 questionable chemicals that they will NEVER use in their products. Since I put makeup on most days, it really does feel good knowing that when I am wearing Beautycounter, I am avoiding these chemicals.
My friend Carmel at Our Fifth House runs a fun Safer Beauty Tribe– and I have learned so much about safer products from her. We were roomies in NYC for the Better Homes and Gardens Stylemaker event- and I can say that she not only talks the talk- but she walks the walk. Her products were all “clean” and she is passionate about sharing her knowledge with others! Isn’t it fun to have friends you can learn from?
Flawless in Five has everything you need to put your face on and it can all be done in under 5 minutes. This set of makeup completely takes the guess work out of the equation. They walk you through the process step by step online for picking out six different items. They have done all the work to make sure it is safe to use. And there are not tons of colors to choose from- only a select few which for someone like me, really makes it so much easier.
As I mentioned, the nice part is that once you choose a skin tone for your foundation, they suggest the rest of the color palette for you. They’re the experts, and they make it really easy to select your set of makeup from there.
Included is a cream concealer to hide blemishes or dark under eyes. From there you apply foundation, blush and fill in your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil. Then apply mascara and add the lip gloss. Six products- total time under 5 minutes!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
I originally thought Flawless in Five meant five products, but the set actually includes six products. So they really mean that you can be flawless in five minutes. Again- taking all of the guess work out.
Flawless in Five includes:
- Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation (I went with Linen)
- Touchup Skin Concealer Pen (I went with Light)
- Color Define Brow Pencil or Brilliant Brow Gel (I went with Light)
- Lengthening or Volumizing Mascara (I went with Lengthening in Black)
- Satin Powder Blush (I went with Melon)
- Lip Gloss (I went with Peony)
I was hesitant to try the mascara because I have my go-to tried and true brand. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked the Beautycounter Lengthening Mascara. The only makeup item I really miss not included in this Flawless in Five set is eye shadow. I would recommend adding some to your Flawless in Five set because this is the one thing I still add to feel “flawless”.
