5 Minute Makeup

Who has the time in the mornings to sit in front of the mirror for hours and do your makeup nowadays? I definitely don't unless I have a day off so my makeup needs to be quick and easy. Here are a few products which I like to use on those early mornings when I have a lot to do but not enough time to do it all. 

You can't go wrong with Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in my eyes for a quick and easy application. The product makes you look really healthy (which the names suggests) and awake in the morning when your more than likely still too tired to get out of your pjs bottoms. I use a Real Technics sponge to apply this product and takes about one minute to blend it all into my face, I never have to worry about it caking or being streaky. My Miss Sporty concealer in light is my favourite concealer to use underneath my eyes and always helps me look more awake and alive during the mornings. It blends in really easily so it doesn't take very long to apply it. 

My go to bronzer for when I don't have time to contour is the Bodyshop Honey Bronzer in light which works a treat at making my look like I have some sort of colour in my face. A couple of sweeps on the cheeks and I am good to go!

For eyebrows my easiest product to use is my Soap and Glory Brow Archery pencil in brunette, I love the felt tip on one end for filling in my brows as it is really quick and easy. I don't have to worry about making a mistake as I can just wipe the excess away and the product lasts all day on my eyebrows. 

A easy way to look like you've spent time on your makeup when you really haven't is to use cream eye shadows, my new best friends and my holy grail. They are basically the lazy girls guide to eye shadow. Two of my favourite ones to use are the Maybeline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze and The Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eye shadow in 04. They are both beautiful golden browns which suit any look and lasts all day on your lids. I usually skip mascara if I am in a rush so I tend to just use my eye lash curlers instead to give the illusion that I have done something to them. 

Lastly the lipstick I always reach for and which is always in my hand bag for referent use is the Newlook lipstick in Camel. The perfect nude that suits any eye look I have gone for and which isn't fiddly to apply, one coat and your good to go.
