Ladies, your attention please. Regardless of whether you're a mom, a mama-to-be, a working woman or a 19-year-old college student, there's something you should know about your makeup routine: You're doing it wrong. Ok, just kidding -- you're probably not doing it wrong, but I bet you could be doing it quicker. Remember when a done-up face was so 'in'? There was too much applying and reapplying. Foundation and powder. But whaddayaknow, now a pampered and primped face ain't the trend anymore.
Out with the old (and over-the-top) and in with the new -- a fresh, effortless beauty regimen that doesn't take all day. Hallelujah! Hell, even celebrities are doing it, stepping out with a barely-there but beautiful glow. It's natural, honest -- perfect for on-the-go. It's a reminder that women don't have to cake it on to look and feel beautiful. Can I get an amen over here?
Gather 'round to catch all the hype on six simple steps that'll give you an effortless and fabulous face.

This is the first rule for an effortless glow. Keeping your skin hydrated and clean is a must do. Depending on your skin type, use soap and water or a specialized cleanser to keep bacteria away. And if your face can handle it, I like to wash at night and in the morning. If you're going to follow a similar routine -- use a wash that's less abrasive on your skin. After you wash: Make sure to moisturize.
