caroline knapp + benefit cosmetics
As a first time mother, I know I am going to be overwhelmed and exhausted in the upcoming months. I hear so many busy moms (and busy working women, as well) say they need a simple, no-fuss make-up routine that they can complete in 5 minutes or less. Lucky for us, Benefit has come up with the “nice package” where you can customize your makeup kit of the essentials you need to keep you looking fresh (even when you may not feel like it). Plus, it includes a free full size product and a free gift bag –all for only $79!

I chose the “hello flawless” powder for a quick application and natural finish for my face and the “hervana” powder blush to add some color to the apples of my cheeks. My ‘never-leave-home-without-it’ product is mascara and you honestly can’t beat “They’re Real” for lush full lashes that instantly awaken your eyes. Lastly, for my freebie, I chose the long wear powder in “pale shell” to brush over my eyelids for a natural coverage to brighten my eyes.

With just these 4 easy products, I am ready to take on the day. Oh, and don’t forget to swipe on your favorite lip gloss for the final finishing touch!
