5 Minute Make Up Look | Tutorial

"How do you liiiike your eggs in the morning?" With a large side of another four hour's sleep, please! But, it's a week day, and that means it's time for work or school... yet before you know it, you fall back to sleep, and by the time you open your eyes again you're late (or very close to it at least). In this situation, you are forced to make one of the most difficult choices of your life: do you put your make up on and be even later, or do you go without make up in order to save time (GASP!). What if I tell you you don't have to make that choice? Try this five minute make up look for these days in particular!

For this simple, yet feminine look, I started out with a base of my Missha M Perfect Cover BB cream (in shade 13) after my usual cleanse, tone and moisturise routine. There's no need to blot this with powder for me due to my dry skin and the fact that this BB cream dries matte and will stay matte all day long. I did add a touch of my Maybelline Dream Touch Lumi concealer to hide my dark circles, though. I then added some Benetint for my blush and dabbed it in lightly with my fingers. Under this I swept just a couple of swipes of bronzer for a subtle contour. I don't know what bronzer it is because I've had it since I was about 10 and there's no name on it, but it's decent enough. Next came the eyes. Just a quick dusting of Maybelline's Pink Gold Color Tattoo all over the lid, followed by a slick of liquid liner and a couple of coats of mascara. In order to make the whole look "pop", just choose a bright lip of really any colour. Here I've chosen the Viva Glam Rihanna lipstick from MAC. I loved this look, and will gladly wear it again.

I haven't done my brows because I ran out of brow product a little while ago, but something like Anastasia Dip Brow would be fast and look fabulous!
