Since I’m not much of a morning person, I’m constantly looking for ways to make my beauty routine fast, simple and affective in the a.m. hours. From pillow marks on my face to a serious case of bed-head, it can take an army of products, time and coffee to get myself out the door. But for days that require a speedy turnaround I reach for my basic make-up needs for a natural, bright-eyed look. In my bag of tricks is a recent find (and affordable) obsession, Olay Total Effects dark circle minimizing eye brush. Chock full of anti-aging benefits, the moisturizing concealer comes in a wand attached with a brush so it’s super easy to apply. It’s a time savor and I love how lightweight the consistency is
Here’s how I simplify my morning routine for a basic, fresh-faced look.
#1 – Moisturize and conceal under eye area. This is where my trusty Olay total affects eye brush comes in handy.

#2 – Even skin tone with a lightweight foundation or mineral powder.

#3 Smooth eye lids with an eye base.

#4 A little bit of eye liner and mascara goes a long way for tired eyes.

#5 Add a touch of bronzer or blush to cheek bones

#6 Moisturize lips with something basic (I love a thick coat of Aquaphor) and head out the door.
