The worst bit about having two jobs is the fact that 99.9% of the time you're shattered and are craving that extra 10-15 minutes in bed on a morning. As much as I would love to wear a full face of make up for work, the truth is I really can't be bothered, I’m sat typing this not wearing a scrap of make up. What may come as a surprise to many of you is the fact that I very rarely wear foundation during the day and only own a BB cream and the one foundation which matches my natural skin tone. I don’t like the feeling of sitting in a stuffy office and not giving my skin the opportunity to breathe.
Luckily though for me, I’ve managed to perfect the perfect two minute face, which makes me look half awake and presentable while at work. As you can probably tell, I don’t bother with any base or powder and brow products. I’ve recently had HD brows and thanks to the brow tint, I don’t need to fill my brows in. Considering I’m writing this two weeks after having them done, my brows are as dark as they were when I first had them done. The only product I can’t function without is mascara and at the moment I’m using Seventeen Back Lash as I’m just about out of my HG Wild Curl mascara. If I’m honest I’ll use which ever mascara is at hand or what I want using up.
As for eye shadow for work, stick shadows are the best – quick swipe over the eye and you’re done. I’ve recently rediscovered my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils and alternate between Sparkle Nude and Yoghurt. However if I do feel in the mood for powder shadow, I normally reach for MAC Arena. Last step is attempting to put some colour into my cheeks – normally I’ll reach for blusher over bronzer and it’s normally cream blushes as it takes less effort (in my eyes anyway) to blend into the skin. Recently I've been using Revlon's Cream Blush in Pinched which gives the cheeks a natural flush and I always apply any cream products with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush.
Then its a case of getting dressed and flying out the door. Have you perfected your morning make up routine? Let me know what you include in your routine.
