As a working woman, I only have few moments each morning to get ready so I kinda mastered a “how to get ready in 5 minutes” routine. I went to Bobbi Browns makeup workshop with BBPR Hannah Martin, where I picked up a few tricks and tips that I wanted to share with you guys.
I don’t like wearing too much makeup so my to get ready in 5 minutes routine is perfect for all you busy bees that are into natural or “no makeup makeup” looks. Since I have a bit of oily skin Its really all about using right skincare and prepping it for the makeup application. It’s no secret that good skincare prep makes your makeup last longer so it’s actually so much more important to spend some more time on preparing your skin. I shared my latest skincare routine here however, I switch quite often and skincare is something that I invest in the most. I also use a primer to prep and currently I’m really into Marc Jacobs Coconut primer which I really make sure I massage into my skin well. This primer is silicone free and its super hydrating and I’ve been using it for so long.
I start with the primer which I firstly blend around my eye area and all the red bits around my face. I’m actually really into MAC Pro long wear concealer which, to be frank, I can’t live without. Once concealed I swirl the BB stick foundation on my fingers and warm it up before gently applying to my skin with my fingers. However, for the concealer, I use either a sponge or flat headed brush depending on the amount of coverage I need.
For my eyes, I’m currently using a BB Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in dark brown mixed with BB Normal Eye Shadow in Camel. I apply it with a standard blending brush and love how this shade really makes my eyes pop. I use BB Smokey Eye Mascara on my lashes and if you could get one product out all of them, I recommend it to be the smokey eye mascara as its the best mascara I ever tried. I absolutely love that you can add so many layers without it making your lashes look clumpy.
To add a bit of bronzer to my face, I swirl Bronze Shimmer Brick on my cheek and forehead for an extra glow. You can also apply this product to your eyelids which makes it so perfect to take with you when travelling since its a great multitasker. I also use a bit of a BB Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in powder pink shade as a blush.
For my lips, I really love BB Crushed Lip Color and my favourite shade is Ruby but sometimes I switch it to Cabana which is more of a rosy pink. I use Cabana mainly for the day look and Ruby more for the evening occasion.
There you have it guys, my quick get ready in 5 minutes makeup breakdown. I got these products gifted and I absolutely love them but I feel like I’m missing a few in my collection so may have to stock up when the boxing day sale hits.
What do you think of my makeup?
