 Happy Spring to you!

Can you believe it's already here? I know it may not feel like it quite yet in your neck of the woods if you are still stuck in rain and snow, but some punchy colors and a fresh, light beauty routine is just the trick.

Spring means easy and pretty makeup for me. I recently got eyelash extensions from my beautiful twin duo friends, Ali and Amie, who own the eyelash studio, Ciao Bella. They are located right here in Encinitas, so if you are in the San Diego area and have been pining for lash extensions, go see them! They are the best! Lash extensions make getting ready about 20 million times more efficient (and as a mom, that is a must). 

My 5 minute makeup routine looks a little something like this...

1) Apply moisturizer (Neutrogena Healthy Skin) and light foundation (I use Cover FX).
2) Lightly line the corners of the lower water line with brown shadow (I use MAC Brun).
3) Apply a pretty shade of pink blush (I use MAC Well Dressed).
4) Top off with a sassy lip gloss or lipstick (my favorites are NARS Funny Face and Sephora Shimmery Orange Juice).

And I'm done!

What does your spring beauty routine look like?

Oh my, you look amazing! I LOVE lashes, and they really make a difference in your appearance! I am not as lucky as my daughter who has long and thick lashes, as I have thin, short ones :( But this just makes me want to get mine done too! Anywho, you look great! And even if you didn't have them you'd still look great :)

Your lashes are gorgeous!! I wish I could do extended lashes, but I get so busy I would probably forget to do the fills.
