My quick go to make-up

I am definitely the type of girl who likes to spend an hour or even more sometimes doing my make-up, doing my make-up relaxes me. But let’s be honest I don’t always have the time, especially now I am a mommy. I don’t wear make-up everyday but when I want to look nice but don’t have much time to spare this is what I do.

When it comes to quick make-up it’s all about deciding what area you need to spend the most time on. So for me I concentrate on my skin whereas for others it could be the brows. When doing my make-up in a rush I also limit the number of brushes I use, for this look I used two brushes and a sponge. but I could of easily done my face with one brush and sponge.

Here is what I do for my quick make up look

  1. I apply CT wonder glow and my primer using my fingers.
  2. I applied my foundation with a stippling brush then blended it out with a damp sponge. I applied extra foundation to cheeks where I need extra coverage.
  3. I used a peach colour corrector on the dark areas around my eyes and then applied a concealer. I also applied concealer over any blemishes showing through the foundation.
  4. I set my foundation with a powder foundation for extra coverage as well as for lasting power throughout the day. I used my damp sponge to apply a light layer.
  5. I applied bronzer to the usual areas around my face around my hairline, top of my cheek and across my nose. Using the same brush, I also applied my blush and highlight.
  6. I kept the brows easy by using a tinted brow gel.
  7. I used a skin coloured paint pot on my eyes and applied a layer of mascara top and bottom.
  8. To finish off I applied a tinted lip balm.

It took me just under 15 minutes to do my make-up today but really it could have been quicker if I didn’t do so much to my skin. I really like to concentrate on my complexion as this is the area I am most self-conscious about, so by doing this I spend very little time on other areas. My eyes, brows and lips are just the bare minimum. If I had time to spare at the end I would apply eyeshadow to my crease with a fluffy brush to define my crease. Or you could use a coloured cream shadow, cream shadows are such great products to own as they can be applied with your finger and blend really easily as well as being really long lasting.
