Where are my busy beauties at? Things haven’t slowed down for me at all, not one bit! I’m not complaining, I do like to be busy, and when I think about it, the way that everything has pivoted to this new way of life, it’s a different kind of busy. I am still connecting with my peeps through online trainings, and virtual appointments. I don’t know about you, but even though I have my yoga pants on (Shhh…;) ) I still like to do my makeup for my virtual meetings. It makes me feel good and I am actually more productive.
With that being said, I don’t want to take too much time getting ready. I don’t have time to devote to it. I am all about making things easy. Can anyone relate? If you can, this is the blog for YOU!
Stay Flawless All Day
I forgot to add something to my above statement. Not only do I want to look flawless for my appointments and meetings, I don’t have time to touch up throughout the day. Whatever I do has to be quick, look flawless and last. That’s not too much to wish for, is it? I can’t be alone on this…
Contour, Highlight & Conceal in Minutes…
Last month I introduced you to my NEW Motives Flawless Face Stick Foundation. I admit I was excited to finally get this formula that took 3 YEARS to be brought into fruition, but what I want you all to understand, is that when I tested them I had a tiny dollop of each shade in a sample container.
It was enough to test the formula and shades, and to fall in love with it, but it was seriously brilliant to have them made into sticks. I have realized that this is what makes it FAST & EASY! And then add in the fact that they are also available in bundles so you can contour, highlight & conceal to add dimension to your face is the real secret to a flawless look. And you can achieve it in less than 5 minutes! Don’t believe me? Let me show you HOW!
Ok, so yes I did speed it up a little, because I know you all, you are BUSY, you don’t have time to sit here and watch a long tutorial. We’re busy, remember? But I promise you before I sped it up, the video was like 3 minutes, and that was taking my time to video and such.
No Layering Necessary
I even took a still picture show you how I used my Motives Flawless Face Bundle-Medium to Tan. I see a lot of people use their foundation shade and apply it to the entire face first, then contour and highlight over it. You don’t have to do that with these, I prefer to use less product. The coverage is amazing, but don’t worry, it doesn’t feel heavy. I didn’t even have to use concealer under my eyes.
I applied the lightest color (Buff) to the bridge of my nose, the center of my forehead and under my eyes. I used the darkest shade (Sable) up by my hairline to help minimize the look of my large forehead, to contour my cheekbones and to chisel my jawline-this will help hide my jowls 😉 I used the second lightest (Latte) color between the dark and light on my forehead and above the sark on my cheeks. I used the medium (Toffee) color to fill in a little.
Using my flat top foundation brush from my Motives 8 piece Brush Set, I started by blending out the lightest colors first and worked up to blending out the darkest. I used the same brush and didn’t have to wipe off or anything in between. The brush was dry, this formulas blends effortlessly. I am barely even touching my face. Seriously, the easiest product I’ve used for this. They are so silky smooth.
Add A Touch of Blush
I like to add some color to my cheeks and the Lumi-Sticks are a perfect compliment to the Motives Flawless Face Stick Foundation. Not only are they great for your cheeks, they are beautiful on your lips and eyes. If I didn’t already have my eyes done with the Horizon Palette, I would’ve done this. They are truly multi-purpose.
Set and Go!
