Hey Glow Gang,

I hope you are having a glorious week! I have been a bit of a busy bee lately. It’s pretty evident by now that I love getting dolled up but when I have a lot on my plate, I do dial down the glam. 

I prefer a simple slay when I am out running errands or have an impromptu meeting to attend. This makeup look is perfect for when you’re on a time crunch but still want a glamorous glow. What does your makeup routine look like when you’re on the go?
