My Makeup In A Hurry

IMG_6996 copyIMG_7024 copy 2

This morning I got in from the gym and realised I had 30 minutes until I needed to leave for my first meeting. So, being the organised person that I am (I’m not really, I just happened to be this morning), I started planning my makeup look on the way home from the gym. That way I knew I could jump in the shower, shove on a jumper, jeans and heeled boots (heeled boots are the key to looking put together when you’re running late), do my makeup in 5 minutes and still have time to feed the dog before making my way into Central London. I also managed to have time to take a couple of blog photos in this time too, literally the fastest blog post I’ve ever shot! I thought perhaps you guys might find this post useful if you often have to look presentable in a hurry. This is my go to look.

Clinque Beyond Perfecting Foundation

I discovered this foundation when I was working with Clinique in December and it is just brilliant. Amazing coverage, but feels smooth and light on the skin. Today I mixed Alabaster and Creamwhip as I’m in between those two shades at the moment. It’s also perfect when I’m in a hurry as it acts as a concealer too.

Kevyn Aucoin Medium Contour Powder 

This has been my top contour powder for over a year now. Even when I’m in a hurry contouring is really important to me as it gives my face so much definition and makes me feel good.

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Perfect Brows

You guys know ever since I designed this product I hardly ever use anything else on my brows. It’s just the perfect colour, really quick and easy to apply and lasts all day.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

This mascara gives me full lashes with minimal effort, so great for when I don’t have much time!

MAC Extended Play Mascara

I always use this mascara on my lower lashes no matter what mascara I’m using on top as I find the thin brush easy to use on my bottom lashes and also it stays put, whereas all the mascaras I like to use on my top lashes end up printing underneath my eyes throughout the day if I use them on the bottom.

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Pink Cocoa Lip Stick

This is just my perfect every day lipstick shade. It definitely makes you look put together and the cream formula makes it really easy to apply, no need for lip liner – you can’t go wrong.

Let me know in the comments your go-to products for doing your makeup in a hurry!

Have a lovely week everyone,
