5 Minute Makeup

As much as I love spending a good hour perfecting my base, achieving the perfect contour, blending out 4 eye shadows and lining my lips, sometimes a quick and simple 6 product face is a lot easier and can be just as effective. Whether I'm just popping out for the day or am simply having a no makeup makeup day, then a makeup look like this is something I will go for. Of course, I am keeping up my glowing base and bronzed eyes, nothing will change that obsession. For a healthy, 5 minute makeup, stay tuned... 

Starting with the base, I apply a small layer of my good ole' Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser and blend it out with a stippling brush for a light weight, flawless finish. You all know that this is one of my favourite bases, the beautiful illuminated finish is just perfect for this time of year and I love how easy this is to blend. To conceal those pesky dark circles, I'm still loving my Estee Lauder Brush on BB Glow. Swiped in a triangle under the eye, my eye area is instantly brightened and adds to the glow of my skin.  

To keep this ultra simple, I'm skipping bronzer and going straight in with my Benefit Cha Cha Tint for an orange coral stain. This is one of my favourite beauty products for Spring, the colour is ideal and the liquid formula perks up my cheeks, bringing everything to life. 

As for the eyes, I'm bringing out my Benefit Cream Eye Shadow in Two Cents for a subtle polished copper sheeny eye. As a cream eye shadow lover, I highlighy recommend these pots of joy. The fomrulas are perfect- blendable, creamy and a beautiful sheen finish which dries and does not budge. Paired with the famous Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lash Mascara, my eyes are good to go. A girl can't go out without taming those brows so to add some colour and definition whilst keeping the hairs locked in place, I brush through some NARS Brow Gel, a new firm favourite in the brow department. 

To finish off the look, I'm going matchy, matchy with the cheeks and wearing the same orange coral stain. I find this really brightens my whole look and keeps everything fresh but long lasting.
