Spring Fresh: How to get the that face in 20 minutes

July 23, 2018

The birds are chirping outside my window on this bright glorious morning. I have a meeting with a potential client for my consulting firm later this afternoon. As I do some daily self- reflection I notice I feel uninspired. As someone who is constantly burning both ends of the candle, I run the risk of burnout quite often. This is the plight of many women out there especially those who are aspiring entrepreneurs or those who are on their corporate ladder grind.

Makeup is often seen as a luxe item or optional item, however,  I beg to differ. What you invest in, will produce results. I invest in my appearance and personal development in return, I have grown by leaps and bounds. You don’t have to be rich to look it. To advance in life how you package yourself matters.  As a black woman, it’s easy to put on this mule mentality where you don’t take the proper time to care for your own needs. Being someone who is transitioning from that mentality, it hasn’t been easy but I know I’m worth the time.  If you plan what is important to you, you will see results. If you want to see a better you this is the perfect time to start investing.

Now being on a time crunch doesn’t give you an excuse to not look your best. In my last post, I shared how to revamp your wardrobe for spring. I’m going to show you how to get your face together in 20 minutes or less. With any makeup look, you can add or leave out whatever you’re comfortable with. The goal is to make sure you are at your best. Think of it this way, if you were to run across  Beyonce or RiRi don’t you want to be fresh for that once in a lifetime selfie?
