my quick 5 step make-up routine

Make up Bag

I have found that some mornings (ok most) I have a short amount of time to get ready to get myself out the door to where I need to be.
Mum life means I need a quick but effective routine. I need make-up products that help make me look and feel good and quickly do the job.

I’ve never worn heavy make-up, always kept things simple and gone for a natural look. Of late this has been my five step process

  1. Base
    Foundation is something I don’t often wear.  Actually only if I have a special event. A BB/CC cream have been my base now for a little while. I was gifted his product but I have loved the glow and feel of it on my face. Not to heavy and just enough coverage.

  2. Eyes
    My eyes are a must. I don’t feel awake unless I have eyeliner on. I don’t know why and where it came from but I must have my eyes done to feel good.
    I actually have found it hard to find a good eyeliner. My pet peeve is when they smudge and leave black marks. This one has been doing the job (for now) but I am keen to find one I love.

    Any tips/good eyeliner are welcome as this is a nonnegotiable step in my routine!!

  3. Bronzer
    I love summer and part of that is having that bronzed look about me. Where I live this is not possible so a good bronzer does the trick. I have used the Body Shop bronzer for years now and love the look it gives. Still natural but with that summer glow. It’s a must in my bag to make me feel awake and ready to take on the day.

  4. Highlighter
    I’m very lucky that my BFF does an amazing job at makeup. She has the right touch and I love how she makes me feel. It was her that introduced me to the Nars highlighter (and more to the point taught me how to apply) and again I love that glowed sun-kissed feel it leaves.

  5. Lips
    Lipstick again is something I don’t often wear. If I do its generally a nude but I still love wearing a good gloss to give me a shimmer on my lips.
    It doesn’t help Andrew hates lipstick. No that it should stop me from wearing but I  don’t reach for it.
    I was gifted this beautiful balm, and I love it. It’s  almost empty and I would happily buy again! It gives the final touch to make me feel ready to go.

  1. I’m the same when it comes to my eyes (must have liner and mascara!!) and I go the liquid liner route now for the same reason. Pencils without a doubt smudge on my oily lids and I find the liquid liners have better staying power.
