The Five Minute Face 

I don’t know about you guys but it feels like ages since I posted a make up blog!

With me working there’s only so much time I have to put my face on in the morning. Therefore, I created a very simple, easy and quick routine which allows me to feel good when I leave the house in the morning whilst still allowing me time to have breakfast and make a packed lunch.

After cleansing my face and moisturising I go straight in with my MAC studio fix concealer, usually putting heaps around the dark circles of my eyes, my nose and wherever else my skin is less than perfect. To save time, I dab it in with my index finger, I know it’s probably not the most hygienic way to apply concealer but it blends the product in so easily.

Then I get my MAC studio fix powder and my MAC 150 brush gently brushing the powder over my face. I find this leaves my skin looking fresh and airbrushed without the cakes feel you sometimes get after putting on foundation and powder. img_9392

To add a bit of shape to face I then go in with my Bourjois Bronzing and Highlighting Duo, applying a little boozing on my cheekbones and the sides of my temples. I follow with a little sliver of the highlighter on my brow bone and the tops of my cheeks.

By this point my brows fade away under the powder and highlighter so I brush through some of my Bobbi Brown Brow Mascara to add definition and make them appear more groomed.


By this point it’s been about four minutes so I grab my Bourjous blush pot and dab a little rouge in between where I put my bronzer and highlighter on my cheeks and run downstairs to eat cereal!

I don’t usually bother with lipstick or gloss as the look is pretty low maintenance just the bare necessities that are needed for work.

Anyway, I hope this blog has helped or inspired your quickie make up fixes before a busy day.
