The NO Time Make Up

Friday, 7 March 2014


We all know that feeling when you wake up in the morning and your eyes just don't want to open and the thought of getting up and facing the day makes you want to roll over and hide under the covers.
That's how so many of my days start. Its mostly down to the fact that I like to go to bed  too late, unbeknown to my children who like to wake up as soon as the first sun rays hit the earth.
And getting everybody ready in the morning can be quite challenging even on a good day. So time is at its essence and getting ready is often just a slap on some make up and go.

The most I have is 10-15min and even doe its not much to get a flawless face out of the door, I still want to look glowy and radiant (look like you put some thought behind your outfit and make up, you know what I mean!?)

First things first and I always like to start of with my concealer under the eyes. The Rimmel Wake me up concealer is great for hiding any dark circles and make you look awake. I like that it feels quite light and never turns into a creased mess.

Next up is foundation and the Laura Mercier Mineral Foundation has to be the one. Its just super easy to apply, just swirl your brush in it and buff into skin! It gives great coverage and leave your skin with a lovely glow that stays throughout the day and even starts to look better as your natural oils start to come through.

On to the eyes and here is where I probably spend most of my time at as I don't want rush out of the house with my eyeshadow all looking nice but no mascara on ( has happened before, don't ask how many times).
I start with applying a wash of colour with my Mac Eyeshadow in Wedge, which give some lovely depth and softness to the eyes and finish of with MAC Teddy Eyeliner and some Mascara!

After I finished my eyes I always like to give my brows a quick sweep with the Maybelline Browdrama Gel (for some definition and to keep unruly hairs in check) and then move on to my lips. At the moment I am into my pinky nude colours like the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Lets Get Naked or the Maybelline Color Sensatinal Lipgloss in Nude Pearl. Both feel lovely and moisturizing on the lips and are easy to apply!

Blush is next and I always like to leave it for last. I find its the safest way to not get carried away with it. If I use it straight after foundation I can often look a bit clownish with big red cheeks and lets face it that is never a good look. The one I am reaching for most days is my much loved Nars Blush in Luster. A soft peachy blush with tiny specks of glitter in it that give my skin a lovely healthy sheen!

That's it, 10 minutes are up and I am ready to go!! Have you got a routine down for those mornings when there is just to much to do and not enough time? I would be interested to find out what you go to products are!!

  2. Eve, what's your skin type and how long does it take your skin to look greasy with Laura Mercier Mineral powder? I really want to try it but I have an oily T-zone. :/ Thanks!

    When I'm in a hurry I just apply some foundation with my fingers and some blush and mascara. 5 minutes top :)

    1. I have comination skin with an more oily t-zone and drier cheeks. The good thing with the Laura Mercier foundation compared to other ones I have tried is that when your natural oils come trough it looks glowy instead of greasy. On me the foundation easily last up to 6 hours without touch up. If I do need a little touch up after 6h its can last for so much longer. Its perfect for my skin!! Thats why this is my third tub!! Hope that was any help for you!! Let me know if you have more questions!!

  8. Thanks for sharing your routine. When I am pressed for time, I see to it that I have foundation on, my eyebrows are filled, and then I apply mascara and lipstick. Everything else I can add during the day like eyeshadow and blush. :)

    1. Yeah foundation and brows are the most important if think so too, and a bit of liner and that makes me normally look kind of decent to go out of the house!!

  9. Anything which gives me an extra ten minutes in bed is a winner. I really must give the mineral powder and teddy liner a go, they've been on my wish list for so long x

  10. Usually I try to plan my time wisely and calculate how much time I need for makeup, but I guess you are right there are days when I have really limited time to get myself ready!
    I really like most of the products you showed, I would love to try that blush- the color seems very pretty!
