Since its still (almost) pitch black outside when I wake up in the mornings, its safe to say getting out of bed is the last thing on my mind. This means makeup has to be quick, because I will have definitely spent more time in bed than I was supposed to…
I’m not a fan of leaving the house without any makeup on at all, I feel so bare. So, I’ve whipped up a 5 minute makeup menu for when you’re running a lil bit late in the morning. Of course, I start with moisturiser as I can’t do my makeup without it. I’ve been using the Nivea Light Moisturising Day Cream, perfect to slap on before makeup. I tend to skip foundation if I’m running late, so go straight in with concealer, of which I’ve been using my beloved Seventeen Stay Time. Perfect for covering up and brightening those under eye circles, and its very easy to blend out. Then a quick dusting of bronzer, I use the Benefit Hoola Bronzer, which looks really natural and doesn’t require much blending out or working with. Annnnnd if you have time then theres no excuse not to dust those cheeks with highlighter. Of course, I’d have to recommend the Sleek Solstice Palette and use the shade ‘Equinox’.
Onto the eyes, I loooove using the Tanya Burr Birthday Suit Eye Palette. I just pop ‘Toast’ all over the lid, this is a beautiful orangey/brown shade. Then put ‘Soft Truffle’ through the crease to give it some more depth, and voila your eyes are done and dusted! Definitely have to skip the eyeliner because ain’t nobody got time for that. I then curl my lashes, and coat them with the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara, which is great for lengthening and giving your lashes some oomph (lol). Can’t forget the lips. I’ve been really enjoying the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi, which is a lovely mid tone brown shade.
There we have it, a quick and easy makeup look for when you’re running late (like me every single day). Give or take a few minutes for this look, I can’t guarantee you’ll get it done in 5 minutes flat haha.
