Due to the PHENOMENAL response I got to the Quick Morning Makeup Video I posted on my Facebook Page last night, I have written this blog post to give you the product list just incase anyone missed it.
The video has already nearly 12,500 likes and over 28,000 people have saw the post! That is just craaazzzyyyy!!! I am over the moon and thank you so much for all your likes, comments & shares!
For me waking up and getting ready for work everyday can be a struggle, and sometimes I wish I could just press a button and makeup would magically appear on my face. I tend to be a snoozer with my alarm, and most of the time I wake up later than I had originally planned. Makeup is one of those things that I personally hate to love. It takes time to put on, but the end result can lift up your spirits, and help you feel put together.
Over the past couple years, I’ve perfected a pretty easy morning makeup routine, that helps me achieve a long lasting, natural day look in a short amount of time. Less is more in my opinion, and all it takes is a few key products to get a nice, clean, and natural look.
The first thing I will always say is have your makeup bag organised! Sort out your makeup bag or drawer so that you have everything within easy reach and you can get straight to work!
Second is to always cleanse your makeup thoroughly the night before, makeup will apply much better to a clean canvas!
Here are my go to products for my quick morning makeup routine, I focus mainly on my skin when I am in a rush and leave lips and eyes quite neutral!
Mac Strobe Cream
Youngblood Cosmetics Liquid Foundation
Mac Prolongwear Concealer
Mac Mineralize Setting Powder
NYX Jumbo Pencil “Yoghurt”
Maybelline Falsies Mascara
Essence Clear Brow Gel
Catrice Lipgloss “Rose Would You?”
Brushes – Foundation Brush (F20 Blank Canvas Cosmetics) Powder Brush (
Mac Strobe Cream – I love this product because it will literally brighten the skin instantly, it is full of de-snoozing, de-stressing, moisturising, freshening botanicals that will boost your skin, this acts as your primer or you can mix it in with your foundation.
Youngblood Cosmetics Mineral Foundation – This is one of my ultimate favourites, I love how easy it is to apply, the amazing coverage it gives and the dewy finish it leaves on my skin.Whats even better is that its a mineral makeup with no parabens and chemicals making it perfect for a daytime makeup!
I apply this with the Blank Canvas Cosmetics F20 Buffer Brush, which I really have to give most of the credit to for my quick morning makeup routine, this brush will have foundation on your face in 30 seconds flat! It’s amazing!
Mac Prolongwear Concealer – I can’t go anywhere without concealer. This concealer is super moisturising and is medium coverage, I apply under my eyes to instantly brighten and remove any discolouration or dark circles.
Mac Setting Powder – I dust my skin especially my T-zone and under eyes to set the foundation and concealer. You don’t have to do this step but I personally could never not set my foundation and concealer with a powder.
Mac Bronzer - I use this to warm up my skin, I would never go out without some sort of blush or bronzer on my face, the one tone washed out look isn't a good choice!
I have a couple of products that I love to use in my morning madness
NYX Jumbo Pencils – These literally are the business! My favourite is Yoghurt, It’s a rose gold creamy pencil that just literally glides over the lid and leaves a soft but well pigmented finish!
Mac Paintpots – These creamy eyeshadows are super! My favourites are Painterly and Groundwork! They come in a variety of shades so pick the shade that suits your eye colour best
I get my eyebrows professionally shapes, and then just brush through my eyebrows with a clear gel to neaten them and keep them in place.
Maybelline Falsies Mascara or Benefit They’re Real
I tend to stick to a neutral shade on my lips just out of pure quickness. My favourites are Catrice in shade “Rose Would You?” or any (all I should say) of the NYX Butter Glosses.
