‘I Woke Up 10 Minutes Late’ Face

I hit snooze at least 3 times in the morning, resulting in very little time to get ready. These are my go-to ‘I woke up 10 minutes late’ products.
La Roche Posay BB Blur Review
 BASE – La Roche Posay BB Blur* and Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eye Eraser Concealer
I’m a lover of LRP skincare, which you might have seen featured heavily throughout the year and also in my 2015 skincare roundup. When I heard they had a BB cream on the way, suitable for oily skin I couldn’t wait to put it to the test. This has an instant blurring effect, which creates an even base. It’s very easy to work with, I just use clean fingers and smooth it over the skin, and it does have a silicone texture so it just glides on. It’s a great product for when you are in a rush.

The Maybelline concealer is lovely and light under the eyes and doesn't crease. I just paint stripes on and blend them seamlessly with a damp Beauty Blender Sponge - super quick!

EYES – Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil, L’Oreal Superliner Perfect Slim Liner, Soap and Glory Thick and Fast Mascara
I look ill without some eye make-up on, so a thin line of eyeliner just at the base of the lashes adds definition and a quick coat of mascara makes my eyes look more open.

I do have my eyebrows tinted at the salon at the moment so I can normally get away with just brushing my brows through with a spoolie, or I'll just add a touch of definition with the Archery Brow Pencil.

If you want thick, fluttery lashes in a hurry, try the Soap and Glory Thick and Fast mascara. I love my Makeup Forever Smoky Lash but that takes too much time to build, so it's not an option when I'm in a rush.
La Roche Posay BB Blur Review
CHEEKS - Too Faced Milk Chocolate Bronzer and Soap and Glory Love at First Blush
I wish I'd found the Milk Chocolate Bronzer earlier, I've been on the hunt for the perfect bronzer for pale skin and this is holy grail, plus it smells like chocolate!
Instead of fiddling around with blusher and highlight, I grab the Love at First Blush, which combines the best of both worlds and adds a glow to the skin.

LIPS - Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm in Rosewood
To bring the look together I simply swipe a little of the Clarins Lip Balm on and this keeps my lips moisturised and adds a touch of colour. A perfect lip product when you are in a rush.

HAIR - Collab Dry Shampoo in Toyko
I just wanted to give this dry shampoo a special shout out, as it has saved my greasy hair a number of times. It smells divine and helps extend your hair style for an extra day. It's a lot lighter than Batiste, so if you aren't a fan of the chalky feeling in your hair, this is the dry shampoo for you.

What products do you pick up in a rush?

  5. I'm not a fan of the thick and fast mascara, it just didnt work for me. When i'm in a rush I tend to use a high coverage foundation so I skip concealer, apply some mascara, bronzer and lipstick and then i'm out the door! xx

  6. Great post! That Maybelline concealer is seriously the best for those rushed mornings!!!
