Over the last couple of weeks I've been feeling under the weather and other than my birthday events, I've been using quick, easy makeup a lot more recently. Five minute makeup is perfect for if you want to cover up blemishes, but you don't want to wear a full face of makeup or if you're in the rush and you just want something on.
Rather than foundation, I've been using the Bare Minerals Bare Skin Concealer* which is a serum base concealer that looks super natural on the skin, can be blended in with your fingers or a sponge and covers everything you need to. Instead of setting it with a powder, this sets itself and doesn't look glossy, so I go in with a bronzer!
The Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow* has been a firm favourite as it's the perfect tone for adding warmth without having a grey tone. Normally I struggle with using bronzer when I don't have a lot of base products on, but this has changed the way my quick makeup looks. I then add a pop of colour in the form of the Glossier Cloud Paint which is long lasting and perks up my usually lacklustre complexion.
I can't stop at just face makeup and I find adding brow definition makes all the difference to the way this looks, so the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade* is great as you can use a thin brush to create the appearance of strokes and this product is super long lasting. After a couple of layers of my favourite Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, I'm then done and ready to apply lip balm to finish off the look.
What's your go-to five minute makeup?
