5 minute beauty looks {giveaway}

As women, the topic of beauty often comes up. Magazines showcase pictures of “the perfect” looking women and although most women realize that most of those pictures are photoshopped, that thought of comparison sometimes sneaks in.

I am a woman who truly believes that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and it glows from within. I have gotten to know many amazingly beautiful women and moms through blogging and today I want to introduce you to 2 of my friends Stacey and Julie who are #MarcelleMoms for Marcelle.

These ladies are going to show you how you can get 4 different beauty looks in only 5 minutes. As a busy mom I like to look nice for my husband – if I can get that look in only a few minutes, that is a bonus! I may be exhausted from a crazy busy day, but if I can brush my teeth and spend 5 minutes putting on a touch of make-up I know it makes me feel a little more like a woman. Although my hubby thinks I look HOT no matter what, I think he appreciates it.

Here are the 4 make-up looks from Stacey & Julie – there is also a giveaway, so be sure to check that out at the bottom of the post.

5 minute makeup looks MarcelleMoms

#MarcelleMoms Stacey from This Lil Piglet and Julie from Sober Julie have created four 5 minute looks with just a few products each.

Marcelle Ultra Gentle Cleansing Gel

Before applying makeup we should take care of our skin by cleansing and moisturizing. Marcelle has recently launched the Ultra Gentle Cleansing Gel which which bears the official seal of recognition of the CDA’s Skin Health Program.

Marcelle is the #1 eye make-up remover brand in Canada and is now thrilled to bring forward an ultra-mild and non-foaming facial cleanser which is gentle enough to be used by the entire family. This cleanser is enriched with aloe vera and glycerin which protects the skin’s natural barrier and can be used wet or dry.
