Lazy Beauty Essentials
You know... just because I'm a beauty blogger doesn't mean I want to spend hours getting myself ready!  In fact, as much as I love to share some quality time with my makeup, I have many days where I'm either pressed for time or just simply don't have it in me to put on a full face!  This, however, doesn't mean I have to look a wreck when I leave the house either!  You see, all I have to do is reach for some of my favorite multi-tasking friends and I'm all set!  Here's my list of 'lazy beauty' must haves!
If you followed my journey in Allure's Beauty Blogger Awards, you may remember that one of our challenges was specifically titled 'lazy beauty' which you can read about here and here.  Well, two of the items that I featured for that Allure challenge still make it on to today's list!  They're THAT good! 
Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Bricks in Bronze has been a staple in my makeup wardrobe for years now.  I have yet to take a Caribbean vacation without it!  I love that you can wear it as a shadow or swipe it all over your face for a slight shimmery bronzed look. 
Benefit's They're Real mascara is simply my 'holy grail' mascara!  No matter how many others I've tried, and there have certainly been some good ones, I always come back to this pretty baby!  The tip of the brush is spiky making it perfect for really getting in there and getting those lashes "batting" proof! 
Stila's Convertible Color is such a fun and easy way to add a pretty little glow on any given day.  A few dabs of this beauty will wake your pretty little face right up!
I fell hard for Jouer's Crème Shadow Crayons when I first introduced their spring 2013 line to you guys.  These crayons pack on the color and can be quite versatile depending on the color of choice.  I've used them as shadow, liner, highlighter and have even dabbed some on my lips for a little added dimension.  Love!
OK, I'm clearly a walking billboard for IT Cosmetics these days.  I've never met a product of theirs that I didn't love.  Their CC Cream is serious business! It's color correcting and infused with anti-aging ingredients making this perfect for my skin!
When it comes to washing everything off at night... I hear you, i'm tired too!  But I NEVER let a day go by where my face isn't properly washed!  How you ask?  Well, I keep Aveeno's Makeup Removing wipes on my nightstand to ensure that if I'm too tired to 'formally my face, I will never have an excuse not to!  Period!
Well, there you have it.  These are some of my favorite 'lazy beauty' must haves!  What are your faves? 
Thank you SO MUCH for reading! XOXO Carla - FMM
