There are a lot of mornings that my bright eyes and bushy tail are a bit more racoon-ish. You know the excuses: baby teething, baby eating, toddler teething, someone needed snuggles, someone peed the bed, someone’s toe hurts, someone’s sock fell off her hand, someone wants popcorn tomorrow, someone is worried she will not have a nose in heaven, and so on. (All reasons I have woken up. Really.)
And honestly, I should really stop saying I am lazy in the mornings. Look, I have kids. We have kids. There are legit reasons we are dead to the world when the sun comes up. I don’t know about you, but I like to get myself prettied up anyway. It makes me feel like I am ready to take on the day. I feel productive. I feel refreshed. I feel like a grown up! I feel like I can at least fake all of this.
You know what else I can fake? Lookin’ fresh. And you can too! So raise your face to the sun, you beautiful sunflower, you! And, here are my 5 Fave products to help:

Almay Smart Shade Makeup: I love this “foundation” because it is super light and moisturizing. It gives me a bit of coverage to even out my skin tone, but it isn’t cakey or heavy. Great for low-makeup days. Honestly though, I use it everyday.
Fashion Glasses: A pair of thick frames will hide tired eyes and make you look like you put some effort and thought into your look which you totally did not and that is the way I roll, baby. If you wear real glasses, you’re so lucky! (Do you hate it when people say that?) I have the 20/20 or so I think. Mike begs to differ.
Suave Dry Shampoo: I have blonde hair so this brand works really well for my color and budget. I’m not sure how it will work on all y’all brunettes. Anyone care to share? Anyway, just spray this miracle stuff into your hair, give it a fluff and be off with you.
MagSoul Knot Twisted Headband: Sometimes you just have a crush on an accessory, and you wear it everyday and buy a ton of them. This would be my thing. It’s the only headband I’ve ever had the truly stays in place and is so comfy. It also covers greasy hair so perfectly.
