Make-up In A Hurry

Make-up in a HurryMore often than I'd like to admit I have to do my make-up in about 3 minutes and I know that a lot of you ladies have experienced this yourself one time or another. I have managed to condense my "running out the door make-up routine" to the absolute necessities and thought I'll share it with you today. (Brace yourself, the 'before' pic ain't pretty!!)

Make-up In A HurryThese are the products I use when I am running extremely late and need to get my face on quickly:

Origins VitaZing - an amazing multi-tasker! It works as my moisturiser, SPF and gives me a bit of colour and dewiness but doesn't have too much coverage, so I don't need to worry about application - just slap it on!

No 7 Pop & Glow Blush - any cream blush will do. Again, this is easy to apply and can be blended with fingers.

MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy - quickly smudged on the top lash line for a little bit of definition & to beat the hideous puffiness on my lids. I smudge it with my ring finger or a cotton bud, if there is one handy.

NarsΒ  Radiant Creamy Concealer - this is the must-have product here. It goes under my eyes, around my nose, on my chin and if I'm a little red (like today) also on my nose. This makes a HUGE difference!

Lancome Doll Eyes Mascara - essential to make my eyes look awake and like I have lashes at all!

Shu Uemura Lash Curlers - an absolute essential! I'd rather leave with no mascara than with my lashes not curled! It makes my eyes look instantly more open and awake.

Korres Lip Butter - usually applied in the car / bus / train

It's not the ideal make-up look but it is super quick and makes me look fairly respectable, it evens out my skin and opens my puffy little eyes.

And these are the products that are with me on the go:Make-up in a HurryMy make-up bag is pretty minimal: powder, lip balm, concealer for touch ups during the day and a brush.

What is your "running out the door" make-up routine? Any tricks up your sleeve?
