Whether you’re that person who can’t be bothered with a long makeup routine or simply don’t find quite enough time in the mornings, I’ve some real good speedy products and tips for you. Even if you love to play around with makeup, the everyday makeup routine can become somewhat a chore. On the days I run out of time I think I’ve mastered the 10-minute makeup task.
No matter if I’m in a rush or not, I love to have a flawless base. To achieve these I use my trusty Yves Saint Laurent Blur Primer to prime and add a glow, and then apply the L’Oreal True Match Foundation with an oval brush (my favourite is from Crown Brush UK). An oval brush literally speeds up the process by a good few minutes. Next up is concealer and for this I love the Tarte Shape Tape, I dab a few spots on and tap in with my fourth finger. It gives full coverage and blends within seconds. Then to set I use the Nars Loose Powder as it’s so quick and lasts all day.
To give a little more colour and dimension to my face I add the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer to the hollows of my face as well as to bronze, then it’s straight onto adding a glow. For a rosy pop of colour on my cheeks I use the MAC blush buy ventolin albuterol from the Sweet Copper Compact, and from the same compact I use the golden highlight in Whisper of Gilt, a cult favourite that I can always rely on.
For the eyes I do sometimes switch it up, but the Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy Palette has been my palette of choice for speedy makeup. It includes so many different colours, and the shimmers add a glamorous pop of colour without all the effort. I usually use the matte brown and orange on the top row (Beach & Penny), followed by LA, a gorgeous gold or Dubai, a deep burgundy shimmer. These are so easy to blend out and make it look like you’ve made a lot of effort.
With about 2-3 minutes to go I touch up my brows with Gimme Brow from Benefit and add a touch of the Wonderwand Mascara by Ciate London. For lips I always reach for the Everlasting Lipstick by Kat Von D in Bow N Arrow as its super pigmented in one swipe and matches so many eye looks. To set and finish I use MAC Fix+ which makes your speedy task stay all day.
I’ve got this routine nailed down to a T now so it takes me just under 10 minutes. What products do you love for a speedy but flawless makeup look?
