Beauty Monday: 5 minute makeup

The long task of growing out my hair from my pixie of 2 summers ago is going pretty well. It's at the point I can put it up in a short pony tail. It's great for days when I do not feel like blow drying this thick mop and spending a long time flat ironing it to make it smooth and straight. I work from home, so I do not have to spend time getting pulled together, but I just do. I love makeup and still want to look my best whether I am "bumming" around the house or out for a date with my husband. You can be pulled together without spending much time, though!

What am I wearing here?

Laura Mercier Oil Free Primer
Jane Iredale Amazing Base SPF 20 in Light Beige
Au Naturale Creme Concealer in Beige
Prescriptives Colorscope Lipstick in Champagne
Jane Iredale Pure Gloss in Beach Plum
Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara in Black
NVEY ECO blush in Blushing Peach
Everyday Minerals  Pearl Finishing Dust

Oooh, and I changed my manicure just in time for Mani Monday!

Even though Kermit the Frog says "It's not easy being green," I will respectfully disagree. I am wearing Jamberry Nails Professional Nail Lacquer in Mermaid, which is from the limited-edition summer collection called Poolside Glow. Over it is the Jamberry Glitter Effect Top Coat. I didn't want it too glittery, so I applied a very light layer of this under the Ultra Shine Top Coat. What do you think? Love it or leave it?
