As much as I love my make-up it’s not always possible to indulge myself in lengthy periods of time to apply it. Obviously if I got out of bed earlier then I could, but no I’m not a morning person, and inevitably run out of time.
Here’s where my handy fail safe kit comes in handy, ready for those mornings I’m in rush. All it takes is five minutes max and I’m done, looking somewhat presentable and ready for the day ahead.
Monu Illuminating Primer – £25.15
Seventeen on the spot foundation fair – £6.99
Revlon Age Defying DNA translucent powder – £6.95
Makeup Revolution The One Blush Stick – Matte Rush £5
MUA Sweetsheen Lipbalm – Coral Reef £2
Benefit Rollerlash Mascara – £19.50
I choose this particular foundation as it is full coverage, meaning I can skip concealer. To perk my skin up a bit more though I mix in a drop of Monu Illuminating primer. This gives my skin a nice healthy glow. I just dab this combination on my face, in evenly spread out dots, then blend with my Real Techniques buffing brush.
The next step it to set those areas with powder that are prone to shine, such as my chin, nose and forehead. As this particular powder is translucent I also dab a bit under my eyes, it just helps to set the foundation here better aswell.
All I do then is dab my cheeks with the stick blusher, blending with my fingers, pop on a slick of colour to my lips with the MUA balm and finally apply a bit of benefit rollerlash mascara. This is perfect as it provides great lift, curl and separation. meaning no worrying about eyelash curlers or clumping.
Oh and I almost forgot my trusty Rimmel Brow This Way in medium £3.99. This is perfect to quickly fill in my brows and give them tidy up in one step.
