The 10 Minute Quick Makeup |
Ever had the moment where its cold outside and its time for you to get up so you keep snoozing your alarm again and again until you are left with not long to get ready to start your day. This has been happening to me all week ive just been so tired and especially with the weather being so cold.
The first thing i have been doing instead of my normal morning skincare routine just applying the Loreal Micellar Solution to two cotton pads sweeping them all over my face just to get any grim from my nights sleep. This literally takes 10 seconds and no less.
Next i apply some moisturiser to my face and the one that i adore so much is the La Roche Posay Effaclar Mat as it sinks in quickly and doesnt leave you with a sticky or greasy face. Its a perfect base for makeup too and makes my makeup last all day.
After the moisturising i apply the Rimmel BB Cream in light very slightly all over my face as i like abit of colour but nothing too heavy and using your fiingers to apply this is such a quick no faff process. The coverage is a good light/medium but can be built up if you have the extra time. This BB cream also helps to cover up blemishes so i just tend to use a small angled brush to spot apply precisely on any breakouts.
Once my base has been applied evenly i then go in with the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer to hide any darkness under my eyes. I use my ring finger to apply this with abit of blending and its done.
For the cheeks i normally go for a cream blusher when i need to get ready quickly - the one product for this is the Bourjois Cream Blush in 01 its a lovely natural peachy pink and using my fingers to dab onto the apples of my cheeks creates a natural flush of colour. Takes less then 10 seconds to apply.
I then curl my eyelashes to make my eyes appear wider and alive. I use the Cosmopolitan ones for now they are pretty average so i need to invest in better ones but as i have naturally quite curly lashes this just adds a slight definition to my lashes.
Pop on abit of colour to the eye lids which i use the Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick - Bulletproof Beige which is a gorgeous champagne gold colour. It really makes my blue eyes stand out.
After my lashes are curled they are then ready for a coating of mascara. The Seventeen Dolled Up Mascara is perfect for natural lashes and an everyday look.
I then quickly use my Elf Lip Exfoliator thats in the form of a lipstick to gently get rid of dead skin and then im ready for a coating of lipgloss from Rimmels Vinyl Gloss which is a pretty peachy colour.
What do you think of my 10 minute easy makeup look?
