My ’15 Minutes to Perfect’ Makeup Routine

Hey Everyone,

Some days you don’t have that long to get ready or you just need to be ready quickly, but still look perfected and polished – I’ve perfected this routine down to about 15 minutes and use products that I know work well for me, I’ve included skincare as I think this is just am important as the makeup itself!

In the mornings I use my Cetraben Daily Cleanser, followed by either Garnier Micellar Water in summer or PIXI Glow Tonic in the winter months. I then go in with Bare Minerals Skin Longevity and Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Defense Moisturiser. That’s usually how far I go with skincare on a day to day basis, I have sensitive skin and don’t like to overwhelm my skin. I also find that this skincare routine leaves me with glowy bright skin ready for everyday life!

For makeup I usually skip primer, this moisturiser leaves a lovely luminous glow to my skin so I don’t feel the need for a primer too. For foundation, I use the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue in the shade Buttercream, this has a lighter coverage but still perfects the skin without looking heavy! I then go in with the NARS Creamy Concealer and focus this on the undereye area and anywhere else that needs a little extra coverage making sure to blend it out seamlessly. I use Bare Minerals Mineral Veil to set this all in place, this helps to make everything last a little longer and your skin looks less shiny.

For the rest of my skin, I tend to use the Rimmel Natural bronzer and Becca Vanilla Quartz highlighter, but this part changes the most – if I’m going out in the evenings I’ll add some contour using the Urban Decay Shape Shifter Palette and a little blush, recently I’ve been loving the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed.

For eyes, this is really time dependent if I time to spare I’ll blend a little eyeshadow into the crease, usually a mid brown tone and apply winged liner – I’ve been loving the Bare Minerals Lash Domination Ink Liner, it’s so easy to use and lasts ages on the eyes. I then apply lots of mascara as I find this helps make my eyes look more open and awake, I love the Bare Minerals Lash Domination Mascara, L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara and Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. I fill in my brows using the Soap and Glory Brow Pencil and L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper Gel.

For my lips I leave them pretty natural, usually, I just use a nude gloss I love the Bare Minerals Gloss in Tantalize, Becca Gloss in Opal or Rose Quartz and the Max Factor Gloss in Lustrous Sands.
