5 Minute Face

*everything mentioned in this post has been purchased by me*


Hey Guys,

It’s no secret that I am NOT a morning person. If you’re anything like me, you will take every second of sleep you can get.  I would love to lounge around all day in my pajamas if I could but my job requires me to look somewhat presentable.
So I have come up with a “five minute” morning makeup routine with just a few products that works perfectly for me on busy mornings.

After I wash my face in the morning I start by dabbing some moisturizer all over my face, before I rub this in I also dab on a little bit of MAC Prolongwear Concealer and blend with a Beauty Blender.
Because I will be wearing this makeup all day I like to set it with a powder, I use MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. I prefer to use a pressed powder for this because it’s less fuss when I’m in a rush. After that I just throw on some bronzer and blush to add some colour back into my face. I use only one brush during this process, the one I tend to go for the most is the Real Techniques Multi Task brush. (pretty sure it was made just for this)
I was blessed with bushy brows so I don’t have to worry about filling them everyday. However I do like to use a tinted brow gel... Like I said, they’re bushy. They need to be tamed.
To finish, I just pop on some mascara and whichever lip colour I decide on and…
 VOILA!

A full face of makeup in under 5 minutes! 


XOXO,

My Top 10 High End Makeup Products

*everything mentioned in this post has been purchased by me*

Hey guys! It's been a while since I've posted so I'm trying to get back into the groove of things. I thought I would take the opportunity to share some of my favourite high end makeup products. It was very difficult to narrow it down to 10 but I did it! Here goes... 

1)      Benefit- The POREfessional
This primer is great to fill in pores. I only like to used it in very porous areas such as around my nose.
2)      Giorgio Armani- Luminous Silk Foundation
I finish of this foundation is perfectly flawless! It is kind of pricey but in my opinion it is absolutely worth every penny.
3)      MAC-Pro Longwear  Concealer
This is such a great multi purpose product, it works great for everything from under the eyes to covering a blemish. One of my favourite ways to use it is to mix it in with a little bit of moisturizer to create a sort of tinted moisturizer.
4)      NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
I use this product as a highlitghting concealer, as the name states it does leave your skin with a beautiful radiance.
5)      LauraMercier Translucent Setting Powder
This is a more recent find. I purchased it specifically because I noticed a lot of beauty bloggers talk about it. This is the powder that I use to bake my face.
6)      Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow wiz
this is pretty much the only brow product I use aside from a brow gel so it’s definitely a must for me!
7)      NARS“Madly” Blush
This is a great neutral blush, I love layering blushes and this is perfect to layer with any other colour but also amazing on its own.
8)      Mac“Soar” Lipliner
I live for this! It has been my everyday lip colour for the past 6 months or so (thanks to Kylie Jenner) I usually wear it on its own but it looks great under a clear gloss as well.
9)      TheBalm – Mary Lou-manizer
I’m sure every single one of you has heard about this by now. This highlighter is EVERYTHING!! *insert angels singing*
It is by far my favourite cheekbone highlight and also looks great on the inner corners of the eyes.
10)  UrbanDecay Naked Palette 
I definitely wanted to include some eyeshadows in this list and for me it was a toss up between the original Naked palette and the Naked 2 palette. The original made the list simply because I feel like the colours are more universal and look great on all different eye colours.
