We all have those days when we sleep in and are in a mad panic dash to get organised. I actually timed myself today to see how fast I could actually get my 'face on'. The timer read 6 minutes 58 seconds when I stopped the counter. So let's say 7. Would have loved 5 minutes, but no matter how much of a hurry I am in, I never slack on the skin prep. I didn't include the actual cleansing as I had washed my face in the shower beforehand.
My Fingers || YSL Powder Brush ||
I started off by moisturising my face with HealGel. HealGel really hydrates the skin and is exceptionally good for those drier patches. Following this, I mixed benefit's That Gal in with a dollop of the Clarins Skin Illusion foundation. This helps give the foundation an extra glow. Normally I would use a buffing brush to put on my foundation but if I am in a hurry fingers it is!
The Soap & Glory Blur & Brighten Crayon, does what it says. Killing two birds with one stone, I was able to lighten those eye bags and cover up any nasty friends at the same time.
I don't particularly like a lot of powder so after running the YSL powder brush over the Makeup Revolution Pressed Powder in Transparent, I gently pressed the brush over my tea zone and blemishes .
MAC Cream Colour Base products are amazing, they have a number of different functions but today I dabbed a little across the tops of my cheek bones and down the centre of my nose. This shade is Hush and is a pearly pink colour.
I usually go for a cream blusher but today I chose my favourite powder blush by Bobbi Brown (although on the packaging they actually call it an illuminating bronzer - which I don't really get), in the shade Pink Peony #9. It is super pretty but you only need the tiniest dab as it is very pigmented. I love my Zoeva Luxe Cheek brush.
For my eyes today I decided to dig out my MUA Pretty Pastels Palette, one I've recently fallen for again. I used 2 shades. I used cream to cover the lid and then the light brown shimmer over the crease and corner of the lid to shade. I used a Zoeva brush that is meant for concealer buffing but I love it for eyeshadow application. I chose not to wear any eyeliner today, due to the fact I seem to take forever applying it. I went for Collection No Clumps Mascara - this mascara is lovely, it leaves a very pretty natural defined lash. One of the best on the market right now.
Finally, I completely forgot to photograph it but I am wearing MAC's Plumful on my lips.
