For those times when our face betrays just how long the day has been and how little sleep we've gotten recently. It's a how-to freshen up the face with four products that may already be in your purse! Seriously. Only. Four. Products.

Libby Antonson from The Parlour Highlands in Denver, Colorado shares some quick tips to freshen up the face with products we should all carry in our purses for those occasions we only have a few moments in the car with that tiny mirror they put behind the visor to put our best face forward.


 

 

 

With fresh, geometrically designed colors, surrounded in stylish gold, this expandable bracelet is a fast and fashionable way to enhance your outfits!

I use loose powder and mascara when there is no time for anything else!

My go to products are my mascara and my nude lipstick.

My go to product in my purse is a slightly pink tinted chapstick. When I didn't want to apply any make-up because of time constraints, it adds just a hint of color. Try it yourself!

No matter how tired I am if I can get my shower I'll be okay. Sometimes that means leaving the kids screaming in their cribs for 10 minutes while I shower and if they are playing happily I'll even blow dry my hair.

Reply

I use some concealer under the eyes as well. Loving all of these tips!

Reply

Melaleuca's Sei Bella daily facial cream with spf, honestly gives my skin a gorgeous glow and tightens my pores and wrinkles. Seriously the stuff is amazing, and i dont even sell it :)

I just like to wipe my face off with a cool wet washcloth.

A clean fresh start can always help!

A quick 5 minute facial mask

Great idea! What kind do you use?

I had to chuckle at the "rewash" comment :) I do the same- but love a cold splash of water to wake up...and some lip balm!

Yes a refreshing "rewash" can do wonders (and so can lip balm)!

Absolutely, Jennifer. They make me feel better.

As moms we have to multi-task, so products that do are essential!

Not a quick fix, but I find sleep refreshes me best! ;-)

Big earrings, sunglasses, lip gloss! :) Works in a flash!

So true, Amanda!

I keep a small atomizer in my purse of my favorite scent. A quick spritz is a nice pick me up and puts a smile on my face. In my opinion a smile is the best accessory when you are tired :)

Cara, smiles do transform us, don't they!?

Reply

Little blush and lipgloss!

Yes! Thanks, Lindsay!

A pair of sassy earrings can perk up your look in an instant!

Lipgloss is an essential. I have it stashed all over the place.

I usually pull out my tinted chapstick to do similar things with my face.
