The 5 Minute Face

Most morning’s I literally have no time to get my makeup on and get out the door so I have the 5 minute face look that’s for every day. It’s about keeping it simple but to ensure I look fresh and my skin looks good. So skin prep is really key before any makeup gets onto your face.

I have gotten the 5 minute 5 down to a T. I don’t always use the same products because I like to switch up my foundation and there are always new bronzers that I am obsessing over but the formula is the same and works for me.

I pretty much always go for a liquid foundation and I apply with fingers when I have less tim,e to play with and I like that my skin looks like skin and adds to that extra glow. I am a dewy foundation kind of a girl. The current day to day foundation is the Rimmel Match Perfection I love how my skin looks with this one.

I never miss out concealer as I do get darkness under the eyes so a creamy concealer is what I normally go for I can’t get enough of the Benefit Boi ing Concealer it just covers up those dark circles and doesn’t crease under the eyes so it sets really quickly but doesn’t feel dry.

I can’t live without mascara and I admit I am too lazy to curl my own lashes even though its a given on my shoots. So I go for a mascara that gives me lots of volume and opens up the lashes. I have so many favourites but here I ised the L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes So Couture.

Bronzer is another product I will never leave home without if I can help it. I use it to add the sun kissed glow and also to contour my face and add definition. I have a ton in my pro kit but the Too Faced Bonjour Soleil Bronzer and Highlighter is my obsession at the moment and haven’t used anything else in the last month really since I bought it on my overseas trip. There is the option of matt or shimmer so you can contour with the matt and add the glow with the shimmer.

Cheeks are not always in my quick makeup look but I have recently been adding a creamy blush for that extta glow and pop of colour. Here I have used the clarins Multi Blush in Rosewood from the Opalescence Collection. I use fingers to apply onto my cheeks and blend.

I never bothered with lips on my every day but recently its a key part of my look whether its a bright lip or a nude gloss. I really love the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lipsticks and here I have gone for the nude pink shade.
