A Beauty Chat: The Makeup Bag #4 Get Ready Quick Edition


Day 5 of Spring Week deserves a quick and simple look with fewer products than normal, but is perfect for when you're running late or just want to get ready super quick and go. So it's time for the multi purpose, simple products to create a look that is presentable whilst missing out a few non-essential steps. 

I aways apply a primer no matter how long I have to get ready, and the Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch provides a brilliant base. Next is foundation and the most simple and easiest one to apply I find is the YSL Youth Liberator Foundation, I apply with a brush, but it can be applied with fingers too, but it gives such a beautiful glow to the skin and no effort is needed. Now onto my dark circcles and the Seventeen Phwoarr Paint has a slight peachy tone to it so is perfect for correcting dark tones, but it is also great for covering blemishes, so no need for 4 concealers. To give myself some colour and brighten my complexion, the ELF Studio Blush in Tickled Pink ?? Is a beautiful and natural pink blusher which brightens the complexion with one swipe. I love this thing.

I have been really getting into doing my brows, and that's mainly down to this product. The Maybelline Brow Drama is a brow gel which tints the hairs and sets them in place. A swipe of this and that's brows done.

Eyes can be a lot more difficult to do if you're in a rush, but one of my go to looks is using just the Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette. I first start by applying Half Baked all over the lid and then Naked through the crease for some definition. Then I apply some brown (or black) eyeliner to the top waterline and then using the Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Eyeliner in Bronze I smudge this along the bottom lash line and also add a little along the top lash line too just to make the lashes look a bit fuller. A quick curl of the my lashes, and add a few coats of the Maxfactor Excess Volume on the upper lashes and Maybelline Big Eyes on the lower lashes, as this doesn't smudge at all and really gets into the lashes and defines them so much better than a normal mascara. 

The Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector is the perfect gloss for throwing in your bag on the way out the door. It's so easy to apply, goes with any makeup look and you don't need a mirror to apply it.

That's it. This is such a simple look, it takes barely any time at all, and is suitable for everyday wear.
