My Makeup Rut - a cosmo confessional

Confession. I'm in a makeup rut with no plans on getting out.
I wake up at 5:30..hit snooze a few times, and crawl out of bed at 5:45 each morning in order to beat nightmare traffic and get into my freezing cold office by 7:15am. Ew. I have to admit that I've been putting my face on the bench in exchange for a couple more minutes of zzz's.

That being said, here are my 5 uber lazy it'stooearlytoeventhink favorite products that can help you look alive-ish even in a 5:45am.
{from left to right: chanel le volume mascara, laura mercier pressed mineral powder, bobbi brown pale pink blush, stila 10 in 1, chanel eclat lumiere concealer}

Stila 10 in 1 BB cream - Can't live without this. Ever. I use it mostly as a primer since I need a little more coverage, but if you're lucky enough to have pretty skin, you could definitely get away with this alone.

Laura Mercier pressed mineral powder - I use the color tender rose. Greatest powder of my life, (the loose is amazing too). Amazing coverage and fabulous oil control. Lasts all day.

Chanel eclat lumiere concelear- Pop a little of this under your eyes and you're good to go. *I live by Bobbi Brown's corrector and concealer, but sometimes a girl's gotta cut corners*

Bobbi Brown pale pink blush - Blush gives you life. Period. Someone once commented on a photo of my dear friend, Kristy Adams stating, "Your excessive use of blush scares me." I live by these words.

Chanel Le Volume Mascara - Worth every single cent. This mascara makes your lash line so thick that you'll forget you didn't have time to put eyeliner on.

Now go get some coffee.
