We've all been there. Had a late night, slept in, missed your alarm and you need a quick go to make up so you can look acceptable in the office.
Don't worry I have your sorted here are my tips and go to products
When your in a bind use your fingers. It does the job well and evenly without messing you having to worry too much about blending and streaking. I would also advise using a tinted moisturiser
. It keep you hydrated and looking healthy. A step I wouldn't miss out on would be concealer. If you are feeling run down and tired this will give you a boost. I would use a multipurpose one such as the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
. You can use it under your eyes as well as any blemishes you may have.
I keep the eyes simple when I am in a rush. I find doing this saves me at least two minutes as I like to take my time blending shadows together. I start by using some simple eye liner. My go to is one I rave about all the time from Essence
. I also use a quick no fuss mascara. One I don't have to worry about getting any where and at the moment that is Loreal's So Couture Mascara
. It delivers the umph my lashes need to make me look wide awake and the wand is small which means I can apply it without being too fussy and careful like I do with bigger mascara wands.
Cheeks and Lips
In the summer you can skip out on the blush for the most part but in winter I find I need it to give my skin that added zing. When I am in a rush, cream blushes are where I go to. The most pigmented one is very affordable and some I have talked about countless time before and that is the Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy blush
in the shade Soft Murauno. The moments that I would spend on my eyes and lips would be able to go here and blended the blush in. It doesn't take a very long time and leaves your skin looking naturally flushed.
In terms of highlighter, this will not be a surprised but I went with the Benefit, Watts Up Highlighter
. It is so effective, giving you a nice glow and literally takes seconds to to blend in to your skin. I applied it on the bridge of my nose and the tops of my cheeks.
You all know I love a good statement lip but sometimes it is nice to be subtle. If you're in a rush it is not the time to apply red lipstick. Especially if you are not use to it. Day to day, it is not worth being late for. I usually go for something like a jumbo lip pencil. I recently got the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
in the shade Bahama and fell in love with it. It is a great everyday shade and worth looking in too if you're in the market for a 'Kylie Jenner esque lip' It takes seconds to apply on the lips and lasts for hours.
The moments that I would spend lining my lips and applying a bold lips would go on to fixing my brows. Tending to the brows is a must for me. I feel strange without it. I am nearly coming to the end of my Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade
which makes me sad. I am in love with the stuff. It is starting to dry up but I have it for nearly 6 months now and it is nearly finished so you o
And that is my Ten minute face. I hope some of you found that useful and you have any trips and tricks let me know too!
