What would you grab if you only had 5 minutes to get ready? Some days that’s all the time I have before running out the door. Being a mom, a wife, and running a business doesn’t always leave me with a ton of free time. Even something as simple as working out can be tricky to find time for. I need products that work just as quickly and as efficiently as I do. Since I’m always on the go, I also like to be able to take my make up with me for touchups. However, I don’t want to carry around a ton of products either. Did I mention how important quality is too? Needless to say, I expect a lot from the products I use. So what do I grab with 5 minutes to get ready? trèStiQue Essential 8.
When it comes to missions, trèStiQue gets it right. Their goal was to create a line of makeup that was easy to use and apply while still looking beautiful on. At the end of the day, makeup should act as an enhancement. It shouldn’t be another thing on your list of to-do’s or be inconvenient. It fits easily into my routine.
The trèStiQue Essential 8 (use code OLIVIA20 for 20% off $30 or more on trestique.com) set is the key to looking good on the go. It has everything I need to apply my make up in a convenient case that includes a mirror. There are two things you’ll notice about each of the 8 pieces in this set. First, all of these are 2-in-1 products. There’s either an additional product on the other side or it comes with a brush to help with application and blending. Second, the packaging is sturdy and you’re never going to find one of these accidentally open in your bag with makeup smeared everywhere. The colors included in this set are completely customizable with 8 full-sized products to create a complete makeup look. Here’s what’s included along with the colors I selected for my set.
- Tinted Face Stick – Tulum Nude
- Concealer Crayon – Bisque
- Blush Stick – Bora Bora Coral
- Highlight or Bronzer Stick – Brazilian Bronze
- Shadow Crayon – Venetian Gold
- Eye Pencil – Swiss Chocolate
- Brow Pencil – Espresso
- Lip Crayon or Lip Glaze – Paris Pink
- Le Pak Deluxe Bag
Now, this set is amazing to create a look in 5 minutes (or more if you have the time of course!) and I highly recommend it for moms and for those in the corporate world as well. It’s also great to take with you while you’re traveling. However, this isn’t a set I would recommend for those looking to create a full coverage makeup look. It’s best suited for more natural looks but some of their shadow crayons are amazing for pulling off a quick smoky eye.
The trèStiQue Essential 8 (use code OLIVIA20 for 20% off $30 or more on trestique.com) set has been a great addition to my beauty routine. I love finding ways to save time while getting ready. How long does your current makeup routine take?
