Summer Makeup Tips for Busy Moms

summer makeupMakeup? Who has time for that?

We all know moms don’t have much time to spend getting ready in the morning, especially when the kids are home from school. So I’ve invited my friend, Faith Miller, a local makeup artist from the Fit, Fab, and Fancy blog, to share some quick make-up tips for moms. Faith is finishing her cosmetology degree and has perfected the quickest way to reach that put-together mom look we all want. And the best part? It only takes a few minutes!

She uses a mixture of products, ranging from inexpensive to pricey on her model for this sweet, summer look but you can just use whatever you have at home and achieve similar results.
