My 10 Minute Makeup Essentials

I am incredibly lazy when it comes to my makeup in the morning. I have a 10-minute slot where I try to throw enough slap on my little face to make me look semi human.

I’ve been a firm fan of Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser in Nude for years. I hate a heavy base which gets stuck to my furry face and doesn’t blend, which is why I’ll always choose the more fluid option or a tinted moisturiser that I can apply with my fingers before buffing in with a brush. To hide dark circles and blemishes, of which I have loads currently, I’m still using my trusty Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer.

I have deep-brown brows that I like to accentuate by running my NYX Micro Brow Pencil through the gaps and I always need to elongate my left brow so it finishes where it’s meant to. I then set them with Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara in clear.

I’m a fan of cream based products for my cheeks as I like them to really blend in rather than sick on top like I find powders do. Lancôme Cushion Blush in Sparkling Framboise is my current favourite. I dab the sponge pad in the cushion before applying two dabs to each cheek and blending. For added shimmer I run a line of Benefit High Beam down my cheekbones, my nose and under the length of my brows.

I finish by running Smashbox Kohl Liner in Teal under my bottom lashes before flicking it up towards the edge of my brows. I’ve forever been on the hunt for a mascara that gives my long lashes the curl factor and I’ve found it in Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Eyes which coats and lifts every lash perfectly.

Et voila. All of my current faves thrown onto my face in 10 minutes.

    Do you use a Primer & have you tried the new Britt blender? They are my two new staples for my also 10 min make up. Although I need anti oil due to the Hearn out here 🙂 might try your Laura Mercier make up as well as I hate feeling coated in make up.

      I used to a Laura Mericer primer but when I ran out I kept forgetting to buy a replacement. I recently got sent the latest Lancôme primer and I am in love! It has a gentle shimmer to it too so adds a bit of glow to my skin. X
