Fresh & Pretty in a Hurry

Mornings can pass in a flash! When I am swamped, I love trusting in the simplicity and quality of Root’s products. By quickly applying just a few of my favorite basic products, I can run out my door feeling confidant, pretty, and put together.


Pretty Booster is my BFF. This lightweight primer has organic moisturizers, like aloe leaf juice, that help my skin feel soft and smooth all day long. After a few seconds of applying Pretty Booster to my face, it melts into my skin leaving the perfect canvas for foundation.  

Our Pearl Powder Mineral Foundation is the most versatile foundation ever! It can be applied using the #64 Fluffy Kabuki Brush for light coverage, when mixed with water or Beauty Sleep it can be applied with the Pretty Blender for full coverage, and it can also be used as a concealer. This foundation is lightweight, never cakey or dry, and as always it is 100% natural. My favorite way to wear the foundation is to apply dry with the Kabuki Brush for light coverage. Root's custom brushes are Vegan and are incredibly soft which helps the foundation to go on like a dream!


Maya Pressed Mineral Bronze is the perfect peachy bronze that works as a blush and even an eyeshadow. I love using our #62 Blush & Bronze Brush to apply Maya, it is the fluffiest brush and is perfect for blending the color onto my cheeks without harsh edges.


Here, I applied Maya liberally on my cheeks as a blush, and then I blended it in lightly below my cheekbone as a bronze. 

Picking one Root eyeshadow is never easy, but when I am in a hurry it is a necessity.  Etta has been my go to choice for months. This icy, shimmery, purple compliments all eye colors and stays on all day. By applying it onto the inner corner of my eyelid, the shimmer catches the light and acts as a highlight. Our #16 Eyeshadow Blending Brush allows me the option to blend the color seamlessly up into the crease, or layer on the color for a vibrant pop of color on the top of my eyelid.


Eyelashes and brows are non negotiable. No matter how much time I have left, it is a necessity I have my lashes and brows done before I leave the house. Root’s 100% Lash Mascara is free of harsh chemicals and filled with nourishing ingredients improve the health of eyelashes. This mascara is buildable without clumping and two quick coats leave my lashes looking thicker and longer (and it smells like a vanilla cupcake!)

Our Natural Brow Powder (pictured in Deep Brown) is super easy to apply. I use Root’s #8 Angled Brow & Liner Brush and quickly apply it to my brow line.


Finally, this little collection of Pretty Balms came straight from my purse, because my love of them runs deep and, I do not leave home without them. For this look I used our Peppermint Pretty Balm. It is sheer and has the energizing scent of Peppermint essential oil which moisturizes my lips and helps me get moving for the day!
