My mornings are a constant battle between wanting to stay in bed and attempting to get up earlier so I look half decent for the uni day ahead. Unfortunately, usually the former wins, however I’m beginning to compromise between the two and get that five minute effortless routine perfected. I still miss out a few steps that some would consider vital, and by 5 o’clock I’m still groaning that I look a mess, but we’re definitely getting there slowly.
I keep my base really simple with my Bourjois CC Cream, this is a bit of a staple when it comes to make-up posts on my blog but I genuinely don’t think I could live without it. It provides enough coverage that I don’t need to spend a good ten minutes blending and concealing, so the Lasting Perfection is kept in the drawer in the morning. I finish off with a light swish of Sleek Blush in ‘Rose Gold’ which adds a nice rosy glow.
Next up are brows, my constant battle in life (thanks Dad for their sparseness) I usually can’t be bothered pencilling them in the mornings so I just brush them through with my Rimmel ‘Brow this Way’ in Light Blonde. I hated this when I first bought it as the brush is waaay too big for my little brows, but now I’ve learnt just to wipe off excess it’s a real saviour in the morning. For eyes is another Rimmel product, this time it’s a shadow in the shade ‘Smokey Quartz.’ It’s not the most pigmented eye shadow in the world, which would usually get a thumbs down in my books, but for everyday wear a subtle bit of colour is just what you want. For mascara it’s obviously going to be my holy grail Max Factor False Lash Effect Waterproof ; one coat usually suffices for everyday, natural looking lashes.
Finally is my current favourite lip colour Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in ‘Birthday Suit’ it’s the ultimate Kylie Jenner/90’s brown which is really at the moment. I’m still not entirely sure it suits me but who cares? I’m too in love with the shade. If you would like a more in depth review on these lip creams, click here.
