#TargetStyle: Get Ready With Me + 5 Minute Face

Compensation was provided by Target via Mode Media. All thoughts and opinions are my own.




It's been about 3 years since I last shared my morning beauty regimen (time flies!), so today I'm partnering with Target to give you my fool proof 5 minute face including some of my favorite "potions" and spring beauty essentials. My everyday look is super natural and light, so this is a good formula for you gals on the go just looking to enhance your best features.

{step one: start with a clean face!} 

I've been using Simple Foaming Facial Cleanser for a few years now - it's very gentle but definitely gets the dirt and makeup off. When I'm stressed I tend to break out and that's when Clearasil Ultra pads come in handy. Over the past year I've noticed I don't need them every day but I still alternate using them every few days to ensure that salicylic acid is getting through the pores and really cleaning them out.

Oh hello, tired Ashley!

{step two: the "potions" aka serums & moisturizers}

 I recently started using No. 7 Protect & Perfect serum and love the light-weight consistency; I'm already noticing my late 20's lines smoothing out too. Hurray! In the AM I've been alternating between the No. 7 and my go-to Neutrogena anti-aging moisturizer. Btw, I'm currently pursuing good eye potions so if you have any suggestions... holler!

{step three: all about the base, 'bout the base}

I've never been one to do foundation as I've always found it too thick. Back in the day I was obsessed with Smashbox's tinted moisturizer but then they went and discontinued it (so rude!), so I hopped on the BB train with their Camera Ready BB Cream. It's a tad thicker than the tinted moisturizer but still a lot more breathable than foundation + it has SPF. I just found out Smashbox discontinued my concealer and now need to pursue a new one once mine runs out! #thestruggleisreal

{step four: blush + bronzer}

3 words: Vitality Face Disc - this baby is your all-in-one palette for highlighter, blush, and bronzer. For a regular day I just add a little blush on the apple of my cheeks and sweep some bronzer across my forehead, down my nose, and to contour my cheek bones a bit.

{step five: eyes + brows}

This is probably the most important step because it's basically the difference of looking like I've had two cups of coffee or none at all. Two products I love: 1) Rimmel London eye liner because it's the only liquid liner I've found that doesn't bleed and 2) Rimmel's Lash Accelerator Mascara because it's easy to layer on and helps my lashes grow. Not to mention my brows need some lovin' from my NYX brow kit to get the fuller look. Brow game is so the thing right now!

{step 6: top it off}

I've been adventuring into lip color lately (time to grow up, Ashley) and this Sunset Shine Lipcolor from Sonia Kashuk is perfectly warm and adds a hint of coral and bronze without being too overpowering.

It may seem like a lot but I promise this is truly a 5 minute face including washing. Believe me, I love the snooze-button so I only use just the essentials to ensure I don't look like a hot mess when I walk out the door in the morning!

  2. Will you post an update to the daily regimen? I've seen you post other products on snapchat that I need to know more about! (Like the Kiehl's serum and then a magic zit cream?) I need to know what 'potions' you are currently using! :)
