When it comes to looking (and feeling) put together, no one questions the power of make-up. For me, looking good is deeply connected to feeling good. Being made up is a huge confidence booster. Let’s dive into my most favorite and hardest working products that get me out the door in a flash. Here are the products in my 5 minute make-up routine.

Treat your make up like jewelry for the face. Play with colors, shapes, structure – it can transform you.

When time is of the essence, the make-up you pick really matters. Knowing your go-to products for a 5 minute make-up routine is essential. For example, I will choose a product that packs a heavy punch or can multitask. Either or will save me time on the back end. I love Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter because it provides my skin with a primer + tinted moisturizer + a lit from within glow. On a ‘good skin’ day that product is the ticket. Let’s keep going with this ‘good skin day’ scenario. So now we need to give the face some dimension. Take NYX’s matte bronzer and sweep it round the hair line, under the cheek bones and across the eyelids. Are you getting my drift? One product doing double duty!

For the finishing touches, don’t get lost in the weeds. Stay focused on high impact. Highlighter and blush pack a big punch. Toss a mini/sample size of mascara and lipgloss in your purse/diaper bag. Mark my words, the day will come when you’ll leave the house without them. Avoid the panic and pack the mini’s. They take up zero space and are hero pieces in a pinch.

fall fashion trends

Fall Fashion

Pumpkin spice lattes (PSLs) are right round the corner, Queen! I’m here for all things autumnal, especially fall fashion. Sultry make-up, cozy fabrics and layering pieces define my fall capsule wardrobe.

To some degree fashion is cyclical. Invest in classic pieces. Shop smart for the trends. Above all, choose trends that suit your aesthetic and compliment your silhouette. If it doesn’t fit and flatter your body, put it down! One can be modern, fresh and on-trend by merely dabbling in a fall fashion trend or two. For example, a hand bag or leather belt in an earthy tone is an easy way to incorporate the trends this fall. Or how about leather driving gloves for on trend edge. Blouses with a puff sleeves or accentuated shoulders will be everywhere. But never feel compelled to participate in something that doesn’t honor your personal style. Here are some of the trends you’ll be seeing in your Instagram feed, in fashion magazines and on this queen!
