Nothing makes you condense your morning routine better and faster than having a baby in the house. Take this past month for example. Rocco hit 8 months and for some unkown reason, sleeping through the night became a thing of the past and a distant, bitter sweet memory. I tried everything– putting him to bed earlier, later, giving him more food, less food, dream feeding (I thought that was done??), and Motrin before bed (probably more nights than I should have). Nothing worked. He would wake up around 2:30/3 AM and by the time he went back to sleep it was time to get up for work.
Needless to say, I got up later in the mornings and my 20 minute makeup routine was reduced to about 12. Looking for a brief ray of sunshine through a cloudy haze of exhaustion, I decided to purchase the new NARS Matte Multiple (in Laos) because makeup shopping is the only thing that makes me feel better.
Hello my new morning BFF!
So if your not familiar with the NARS Multiples, $39, they are a multi-use product for the eyes, face and lips. The original line of Multiples were sheer with a hint of shimmer. Perfect for highlighting and a just a kiss of color.
Its cousin, the new Matte Multiple, packs more of a punch. While the size of the Matte Multiple is smaller, the product is super pigmented—thus needing less product. And the color is buildable so you can adjust how vibrant you want the color to be (see just one swipe below, in Laos):
It’s easy to blend with fingers or a brush. For a sheerer look, apply wet. Applied on lips, I suggest a coat of gloss, as it’s a little too matte for me. The line comes in 8 shades and I want every single one.
But until then I’ll be happy with Laos. And 8 hours of sleep, please.
