How was everyone’s Easter!? It feels so bloody long ago now, I can’t believe it’s been a week and a day since I was swigging cava yelling expletives at the Isle of Wight superior quality WIFI that my Nan pertains. On that point of convenience brings me to my next one- see what I did there?… Now I love Make Up, and I know many of you out there love Make Up. But what happens when at 7am, you’re off to work/taking care of feeds/planning your wedding, NAY life; we don’t always have the time or energy to put on a full face in 20 minutes. SO I’m here to show you how to do it in 5.

 

You will need:

– Your colour base and chosen brush.

– A tinted illuminator- I’m using a liquid, feel free to use the powder version if you get oily.

– A fine angled brush and matt eyebrow shade shadow.

– A waterproof eyeliner.

– A tinted lip gloss/ balm.

– A mirror to admire your handiwork after 😉

Using your chosen foundation brush smooth a pea sized amount over the face. I’m using Clarins True Radiance Foundation in 105 Nude. Using your fingers pat to smoothed perfection, especially around the eye area.

Using Nars Orgasm Illuminator, pat a half pea sized amount onto apples of the cheeks up towards the temples, using your index and middle finger. Smooth excess onto brow bone.

Gorgeous complexion, DONE.

Fill in your eyebrows with Bobbi Brown Matt Shadow, I’m using Mahogany 11, using a fine angled brush. This is from Crown, Ecotools do similar.

Draw along the base of your lashes with a liquid liner. I’m using Estée Lauder Double Wear, pushing your liquid liner brush downwards into the lashes. This makes sure there’s no visible skin barrier.

Flick towards the end, it can be as petit or avant grade as you like. HINT: Smaller flicks, take less time to do at 7am 😉

Finish with a Burts Bees Lip Shine, it’s beautifully tinted, enough to brighten the complexion. I’m using Pucker, not to pinky, not too peachy.

If you have time left over why not:

-Add clear mascara to those brows, tames them and adds structure of the face.

– Curl your lashes, Shu Uemura and Surratt do THE BEST curlers. Don’t waste your time or money with other brands.

– Add mascara, Bobbi Brown’s Smokey Eye is LUSH. They even store small versions as samples, perfect for your handbag.
