Ready in 5

I work in retail, so my hours are often all over the place. When new shipment comes in, I often start my work day at 5AM, leaving me with absolutely no motivation to get up any earlier than I need to to put on my makeup. Unfortunately, because I work in the business of customer service, I often do have to look at least a little presentable, so I've come up with a routine that takes all of five minutes.

I start off with a lovely little primer that doubles as a moisturizer, and that's the Korres Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Primer. I actually received this as a deluxe sample with my purchase at Beautylish, and it was love at first use! This stuff manages to completely hydrate my skin without any greasy sort of feel, which is the ultimate dream. After that, I'll apply my Dior Nude BB Cream in Fair 002 using my fingers. I honestly could apply this stuff in the dark, it's that beautiful and natural looking. Within seconds of blending, you have a glowing satin-like finish that will last for hours.

Because I'm getting ready in a hurry, I often will opt for a more moderately coveraged concealer as opposed to one that's heavy duty (as those usually take a lot more work and blending). My most reached for would have to by the concealer/highlighter hybrid pen, By Terry's Touche Veloutee in Cream. Within about two seconds this can be blended in, leaving your eyes brightened and far less tired looking. I'll often throw a bit on my top lid as well as an eyeshadow primer, followed by a swipe of the nude shade Skim from my favorite Urban Decay Naked2 Basics Palette. After that, I finish off my eyes with the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Mascara, one that'll last all day long.

For my cheeks I use the shade Mood Exposure from my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (a palette I can't seem to shut up about!), which adds both color and a bit of luminosity to the skin. Lastly, I use a bit of my gorgeous Fresh Sugar Berry Tinted Balm which adds just the right amount of berry color to my lips while still keeping them nice and hydrated. And that's about it! Easy peasey, no fuss makeup that I don't have to wake up even earlier for is the goal.
