The Working Girl: Daily Face Essentials

So I’m back with my second post for The Working Girl series, the next 2 or 3 may not be completely beauty based but will certainly be helpful! So today I’m talking a about getting your make up done in the morning, there has been a few incidents (waking up late) which has resulted in a rushed make up application. So when I am in a rush, I go to these 6 essential products for a nice and simple look which isn’t time consuming.

So foundation, I use the stay matte Rimmel foundation as it is quite a thick consistency, I’ve found you don’t really need to go over blemishes with concealer that much, then cream blush for a quick application, eyebrow pencil with a brush on the lid, again from Rimmel. Maybelline colour tattoo eye shadow is really quick to apply, I just use my ring finger and build up the colour on the corner of my outside lid. Finishing off with eyelash curlers and maxfactor mascara. Gives a simple and pretty look, without taking ages. Feel free to adapt to different brands and products, but i stay in this routine if I’m a bit short on time.

Got any tips for speeding up routines in the morning?

    When I don't have much time I love using creme eyeshadows & the Maybelline ones are so good. Very easy to apply. I want a few more shades.Great routine!
