As teachers, we barely have time to pee during the day. There is no way we have time for fixing or reapplying makeup. Luckily, SeneGence® has a complete line of makeup products last all day long. Like, all of the makeup- not just our LipSense®. Everything can be perfect for a day when you have outdoor recess (or the dreaded indoor recess), a messy lab involving water, hauling around that pile of grading, and a never ending PD where someone asks a question right as the meeting is ending. Oh, and you can swing by and get dinner with friends after all that too. Yep, your makeup will still be there for you. Just like the reruns of your favorite TV show that you watch instead of grading that pile of work that now has come home with you. Here is a rundown of my must have 3 teacher makeup items for when I need to be out the door in less than 5 minutes.
Even out my complexion- Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer
This is one of my favorite teacher makeup products we carry, because it keeps you looking natural, but it evens out your skin and reduces redness. Plus, our tinted moisturizer can adjust up or down a few shades. That means you don’t need to spend a lot of time finding your perfect shade (bonus teacher tired points). To keep ordering simple, we have light, medium and deep shades to choose from. You can apply this with your fingers, a foundation brush, or like I do, I use a damp blending sponge. All 3 options work (but I think a sponge or brush will help you get the job done a bit faster). Just apply one pump of the Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer your daytime moisturizer.
Create some eye drama- Mascara or Eyeliner
Teacher tired is a real thing. And it always shows in our eyes. I use our VolumeIntense Mascara in black to help counteract that and make my eyes *seem* less tired than they are. I just feel that when I have some focus on making my eyes pop, I feel put together and ready for the day. And our newest mascara really adds some length and volume- try it out in waterproof or non-waterproof (it’s still water resistant, so it can survive what your school day may bring you). My friends are not all mascara people- a lot of them use eyeliner as their go to instead. We have a great retractable eyeliner pencil in black and black-brown. It is smudgeable after applying, and once it’s dry it is set for the day.
Top off those lips- LipSense® or Gloss
Lipstick was the product I NEVER wore while teaching. The few sample tubes I had collected over the years didn’t stay for very long, and I’m a busy teacher and forget to drink water, let alone apply lipstick again. So, yea, LipSense has been a makeup game changer for me. I wear a nude-ish color most days, but it is fun to break out a bright purple or fire engine red with an neutral outfit. My students always have mixed reactions to it- the girls love purple lipstick, the boys never understand it. Either way, everyone knows I’ll rock a bold lip on a regular Tuesday to school if I want to. On other days, I’m literally barely making it out the door on time. So I grab one of our glosses that has some more color to it and slap that on as I’m driving to school. Not only does it help give a bit of a polished look to your face, it also hydrates your lips. Just slap some more gloss on whenever you feel like it.
So that’s my 3 items that I wear everyday to teach. They get me looking presentable and out the door in less than 5 minutes and are super easy to apply and forget about. Which makes them perfect to start your SeneGence makeup collection (or as a gift to a teacher friend of yours!).
