Turn It Up Challenge #2: The Five Minute Face with P&G Beauty + Giveaway!

Ugh.  There’s nothing worse than waking up in the morning only to realize that you turned off your alarm, overslept, and now have precious little time to get yourself ready and out the door.  I know we’ve all been there and it’s never fun.  I’m not one to run out the door looking like I just rolled out of bed, so I put together my 5 minute face using some great P&G Beauty products (Olay, Herbal Essences & CoverGirl!).  When I say 5 minutes, I mean it – I timed myself while I threw this quick look on and made it through before the buzzer went!

Let’s start with the face.  I like to wake myself up by giving my skin a quick wash in the morning, and the Olay Fresh Effects {Out of this Swirled} Deep Pore Clean & Exfoliating Scrub is the perfect wake up call.  It had gentle exfoliating beads to help get rid of any dry skin and leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean.  I like to follow this up with Olay Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer to hydrate and get my skin prepped, then give my eyes a boost with Olay Fresh Effects {Bright on Schedule} Eye Awakening Cream – the “metal ball” applicator is cool and soothing and really helps to de-puff tired eyes.  I actually noticed a difference right away (hint: to make this even better, keep it in the fridge for a real cooling feeling).

As for quick makeup on the go, I like to start off with Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream!} Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizing Cream.  It’s lightweight, helps to even out skintone for a brighter look and masks minor imperfections.  I like to add a little colour, so I added some CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Ginger Flame to my lids and Crystal Flame to the inner corners of my eyes to brighten them up.  I also added a little liner using CoverGirl Ink It! in Black Ink before throwing on a couple of coats some CoverGirl Clump Crush Mascara (one of my absolute favourite mascaras).  Finally, I added a little moisture and shine to my lips with CoverGirl Lipsticks Smoochies Lip Balm in #BeSweet.

For speedy hair, I find it’s easiest to throw it up in a quick bun.  I try to shower the night before when I know I’m going to be up early and spritz on some Herbal Essences Honey I’m Strong Silkening Spray to keep my locks feeling soft when I wake up.  Give it a quick twist and pin it up, spray it with some Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Tousling Hairspray to keep it in place, and you’re good to go!
