There are days where I have to pop some make up on in two minutes flat. Sometimes the situation calls for 'quick out of the door we go' emergency measures. Here is a minimal make up look that takes two minutes to do.
Concealer: A 'Must be used' Step
Concealer is definitely a must, especially if I want to look as good as I possibly can in the space of two minutes. I don't tend to stick to a specific concealer, I love switching them up. The concealer I used for this look is the NYX 'Full Coverage Concealer'. Its a cream based concealer, light weight and decent coverage. The shades lean more towards the peach side of concealers, which is great for covering dark circles under the eyes. I apply all concealer with a beauty blender for flawless application. Whilst I am blessed with nice skin, concealer does help to conceal those small red imperfections that love to lurk on my face.
Eyebrows: Don't leave them out
Eyebrows are a rather important part of my make up routine. My brows look sparse without them being done up. So before I leave my house, they need to be filled in. I have gotten pretty used to filling my brows in quickly, so they don't take very long at all. The pencil from '& Other Stories' in the shade 'Worcester Taupe' is a favourite of mine to use. Its quick, it matches the colour of my brows and stays put. Brow pencils to me are the quickest way to get brows done.
Eyeliner: Tight line those eyes
I am a huge fan of anything eyeliner. Its just the perfect weapon to help shape and frame those eyes and definitely a must have step to include in my make up routine. Whilst tight lining can be considered tricky, I find it very quick and easy to do with a gel eyeliner and a small angled brush. One sweep of the brush across each eye takes seconds to do. Tight lining quickly does take practise but try using a brush and some gel eyeliner. They stay put on the waterline and are a much gentler way of applying tight lining. Tight lining helps to darken those upper lashes yet still look natural.
Mascara: The Must Do
Where there is eyeliner - there is mascara. I love making my lashes look as dark, full and healthy as possible and this is not possible without my trusty weapon, the mascara. I love to use mascaras that lengthen and add volume to lashes all in one go. One of my ultimate favourites is the Lancome 'Hypnose Star' Mascara which does a great job at making your lashes look flattering. This is a mascara that will bring out the best in your lashes.
The Lip Crayon: The final step
I love to add a pop of colour to my lips to brighten up my look. Recently I have been turning to colours that are pink with slight coral undertones. Revlons 'Honey Douce' has been one of my ultimate go to lip products. The colour is a classic rose pink with a moisturising formula that helps to prevent chapped lips during the cold winter season. I do recommend the entire Revlon Lip Crayon range to help put a bit of colour and nourishment into your lips.
This is the make up that I speedily pop on in two minutes flat!
