The 5 Minute Face 

There’s something about a face of makeup and a smart hair style that makes me feel as though I am capable of getting through the day like an adult who has her shit together. If you are like me, mornings usually begin with snoozing through twelve consecutive alarms which go off in five minute increments. I always tell myself I’ll be okay to ‘rest my eyes’ only to wake up and realise I have 10 minutes to be out that door. So for my first post, I thought I’d share how I manage to look like a functioning adult, even when I only have 5 minutes to paint my face. Foundation and concealer are a must! Max Factor Miracle Match Foundation is perfect for blurring imperfections, giving you a natural dewy finish that lasts all day. It blends effortlessly and seamlessly. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer will hide the sleep beneath your eyes while also highlighting those cheekbones These are super long lasting products and are a match made in heaven for anyone with dry, normal and combination skin.

For a quick eye look, blend your favourite bronze eyeshadow through your crease to add depth and warmth to your eyes. Then throw on a coat of mascara for an instant eye revival. The Maxfactor Velvet Volume False Lash Effect Mascara’s new technology helps you to build thicker, bolder lashes without it clumping meaning less time spent on separating your lashes and more time trying to be on time. Not only is it clump proof but its also smear proof … winner.

A dusty pink blush, paired with a bold coloured lip screams effortlessly chic while also convincing people that you spent a lot more time getting ready this morning than you actually did. Finish the look off with a hint of highlighter and run out of that front door like you've just missed the train…because if you’re anything like me, you probably did.
