I don’t know about you guys but I’m never up early enough to do a full face of makeup for work, I just love my sleep way too much!. So now, I have come up with a routine that is quick and has me looking presentable.
First off after my skincare routine (I always make time for that) I apply a primer. This will help keep my skin hydrated, keep my makeup looking good, help it last longer and help fill in my cavernous pores.
After my primer has dried (this is sped up by fanning my face frantically) I then apply my foundation. Depending on my skin and its current condition, I will choose anything from a tinted cream to a regular foundation.
Next I’ll conceal my dark circles and any other horrific mark on my face. This is blended with a beauty blender. Please excuse the concealer palette, I’d clean it but it’ll only get messy again as I use it pretty much everyday!
I don’t usually bother with contouring when I go to work as I never have the time, so instead I’ll apply a bit of bronzer all over my face to give me a healthy glow and keep me from looking like something out of the Living Dead. After I’ll apply my favourite blush and finish off with a dab of highlighter under my eyes, cheekbones, forehead, bridge of my nose, Cupid’s bow and chin.
Next up I’ll do my eyebrows. If I have time to spare, I’ll use a brow palette and a brow defining gel. If not then I’ll just use the brow defining gel.
Mascara comes next. I’ll apply a few coats to boost the volume of my lashes and if I have enough time I’ll add some eyeliner. I never use false lashes for work as they take forever for me to put on!
Lastly I’ll finish off with a soft shade of lipstick or a lip balm to brighten up my face.
If I really am running late then I’ll skip the bronzer, blush and highlighter and do it when I’m at work as it only takes a few minutes 🙂
