A Beauty Essential: 5 Minute Makeup


We all have those mornings when the task of dragging our butt out of bed in the morning seems impossible. But putting makeup on in 5 minutes also seems an impossible task. Nuh uh uh. I have got the 5 minute makeup down now, it's so simple I thought I would share it with you. Okay so maybe not 5 minutes but definitely less than 15 minutes.

This is the look...

...this is what I used...

...and here's how I got it...

Primer is still vital, the Benefit Porefessional is a brilliant primer and I only apply this in the centre of my face and chin. Next is foundation and I love the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation is fuss-free and can be applied with a brush or just your finger tips. Concealer can be so quickly applied if you use one concealer for under eyes and blemishes. The Seventeen Phwoar Paint Concealer in Fair is the perfect shade for my skin, easy to apply, comes in a compact and can be used on spots as well as those dark circles - remember to apply some on those eye lids to prime them ready for any eyeshadow. Add a cream blush to those cheeks, like the Bourjois Cream blush in 03 which will add radiance and brighten those cheeks up.
Onto eyes, and for this, something which can be used all over the lid, easy to apply, and is beautiful colour is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow in Smokey Quartz. A beautiful colour, an amazing shadow, and so beautiful as a simple wash of colour on the lids, as well as the bottom lash line. Using a brown eye liner on the top and bottom waterline and then add some mascara one I'm trying at the minute is the Maybelline Big Eyes Waterproof Mascara and that's eyes done too, with only 3 products used.

 ...and heres some lip options...

For lips, nothing too complicated, something like the L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipsticks or the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector or even the Revlon Matte Balm in Striking is also a brilliant option as it's a red which always makes it look like you've put more effort into your makeup than you actually have. 
What is your go to look/products for those rushesd mornings?

(I apologise the photos look so grainy, I used a different photo editer, safe to say I wont be using it again.)
