My daily quickie face routine

I am not a morning person.  I give myself the least possible time to get up, get dressed, feed the dog, make the lunch and do the makeup.  Every night I say to myself, I'll get up when the alarm goes off, not 15 minutes later hehe

Because of this sheer laziness, I have got my daily basic makeup routine down to about 4 minutes.  If I want to apply eyeshadow, I need an extra 4 minutes, blending takes time!  I'm happy if I have foundation, mascara and something on the cheeks, anything else is a bonus.

Anyway, this is what I used today:

Gosh Natural Touch Foundation in 36 Ivory applied using my MAC 109 brush.  I cannot recommend this brush enough for foundation.  It sheds a little bit but I can live with that.

I then apply my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium all over my face using an Ecotools powder brush.  I got this brush in NY earlier this year but I think some Boots sell them.  Love it.

Next comes Benefit's Coralista to the cheeks.  I used the white end of an Essence of Beauty dual ended Blush and Power brush that I also got in NY. (I went a bit brush mad over there, purely in the name of research ;P)

Finally, I applied a quick coat of Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara in Black.

And this completes the "quick or I'll miss the train" routine :)  Does anyone have any tips or tricks for morning makeup?

  1. I squirt a blob of moisturiser onto the back of my hand, add a blob of foundation, swirl them around and then rub them both on to my face together! One step instead of two! Saves a little time!

  2. That's a great idea and a simple one at that hehe will try in mornin, tnx! Only gave myself 3 minutes to do the makeup this mornin, sure could've done with a makeup gun thing from the simpsons hehe
