Five Minute Makeup

I thought i'd do a snappy post about my quick makeup routine when i'm minutes away from running out the door! For my skin I keep it really simple, I don't want to spend 5 minutes buffing in liquid foundation, so I stick to powder foundations when i'm in a rush, with a bit of concealer underneath. Recently i've been using my MAC Studio Fix Powder in NC15 with MAC Studio Finish Concealer  underneath in NC15 to cover blemishes and my under eye circles. And voila! The skin is covered and powdered in two steps.
On the cheeks I like to use a blush that's going to add colour but also a bit of warmth so I don't have to use a separate bronzer, for this the Benefit Rockateur Blush is perfect! It's a rosey, mauve pink with hints of brown in it (think rose gold), making it the perfect blush to wear on it's own! 
For eyes, again I keep it simple with a creme eyeshadow, such as the Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye Paint in 'Rich Russet' which is a beautiful bronze shade, much like the Maybelline ColorTattoo in 'On and On Bronze' (which I also love). I then add a bit of depth to the eye by taking a deeper brown such as the No7 Single Eyeshadow in 'Truffle'. 
I recently purchased the new Maybelline Mascara which is just a spin off of their Colossal mascara, it just adds a nice amount of volume and length, but does get a bit clumpy so I may have to go back to the Falsies once i've finished this mascara up!
Finally for lips i've been layering two lipsticks, the Revlon Lipstick in 'Pink in the Afternoon' and the Revlon Lip Butter in 'Berry Smoothie', which creates a really pretty pink that's perfect for every day! Although if you wanted to make it easier you could just apply a bit of tinted lip balm and bam! You're done.
