5 Minute Makeup

Saturday, January 25, 2014

If you're anything like me you will probably try to stay in bed for as long as possible. This can include pressing snooze on your alarm at least 4 times. THEN once you decide to peel your eyes open you continue to check up on Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, you know - the usual morning social networking routine!

After a little while of rolling around in your bed really not wanting to get up...there comes that moment when you're thinking "oh my gosh I have 30 minutes to get ready and out the door!". I'm a night time shower-er (Did I just make up that bad english?) so my hair is usually okay the next morning with slight waves that a 2 minute run through with a straightener can it make a little less "bed head" like. As for the makeup..

I start off by applying my bareMinerals Matte Foundation (shade fair) using my Real Techniques Multi Task Brush if I want a lighter coverage or the Buffing Brush if I want a more full coverage look. This provides the perfect amount of coverage that I like while allowing my skin to show through. To add a little colour to my cheeks I've been using the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed which provides a natural flush to my cheeks.

For my eyes I go really simply by applying the MAC Black Track Fluidline gel eyeliner with a small flick to create the illusion of thicker lashes and opened eyes. I then like to apply my Maybelline Falsies Mascara in Blackened-Brown to my upper and lower lashes. I apply a thin coat on my lower lashes to make my eyes appear more awake!

Lastly for my lips I have become OBSESSED with the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in the shade Streak. Such a beautiful pink coral shade that really awakens the face and ties the whole simple look together. I really think you can wear the simplest makeup and the lipstick can make you look so put together.

Now it's time to get dressed, eat some breakfast, and you're out the door!

What are your 5 Minute Makeup items?

    1. I think they really are so amazing! Sometimes I don't always like to believe the hypes but a good friend of mine used to use the Tarte blushes and I always remember loving them on her. So I had to get it! Then Brittany from Life Set Sail convinced me via twitter to get some UD Lipsticks! You need a little bit of both in your life ;) xx

  2. You look gorgeous-love your eye makeup + the urban decay lipstick is such a pretty colour, might just have to get my hands on that one!
