WAKEUP MAKEUP

 
 

Sometimes (more like all the time) hitting the snooze button and getting an extra 10 minutes in bed is far more important than doing my makeup! But leaving the house bare faced sometimes isn't an option so I have discovered some products that are quick, easy and look well put together.

Loreal True Match Genius // £12.99

A primer, foundation, concealer and powder in one, this ticks all the boxes. So there's no need for extra, time consuming steps. This glides on so smoothly and is full coverage so it hides most imperfections, I still like to add concealer under my eyes though. Its a matte finish but not cakey and lasts all day. I find I don't need a powder with this but really oily skins might like to. I like to apply this with my Real Techniqes buffing brush and requires minimal blending! I have the shade 4.N Beige, which matches my skin tone perfectly.

Benefit Boi-ing concealer // £17.50

This is my current go to for concealing dark circles (I have a whole post on my top concealers for dark circles, you can read it here). Say good-bye to dark circles with this full coverage little beauty! Its easy to blend, lasts all day and doesn't crease! I like to apply this with my fingers and any signs of a late night / early morning are gone! I have the 01 which is lighter than my skin tone which is perfect for highlighting the under eye area.

Max Factor Crème Puff Blush in the shade 05 Lovely pink // £8.99

This is the perfect colour for achieving that perfect awake glow! It has multi tonal pigments that blend effortless to give an instant flush of colour and acts as a highlighter too. I like to apply this on my cheek bones to help sculpt and lift the face.


 
Most of the time I definitely do not have time in the mornings to be blending two or more eye shadows! The Maybelline colour tattoos are a life saver for those times! These provide 24hr wear, great pigmentation in creamy gel like formula that are so easy to apply! I like to apply them with my fingers, all over the lid. I recommend all the colours, But my Favourites are:
  • Crème De Nude - This is my current favourite! Its a beautiful matte nude with yellow undertones. A perfect every day colour.
  • On and On Bronze - This bronzy brown shade is perfect for everyday wear either on its swept across the lid or blended with another shade for a more dramatic look.
  • Pink Gold - A beautiful shimmery Pink with gold hues, a perfect hint of colour that make eyes pop!
 
 
This a 2 in 1 eye shadow and eye liner, making a must for early mornings. This blends so effortlessly in the convinance of a stick! The shade is a lovely beige, gold with some shimmer.

 
 
If you like mega volumulised lashes this is the mascara for you! One coat is all I need to make me look wide eyed and awake. This doesn't flake, smudge or budge!
 
 
This Liquid lipstick provides the coverage of a lipstick and the finish of a gloss. This pinky nude shade is perfect everyday shade that glides on effortlessly and easily!
