2015 has started quickly. Against all trends, I refuse to make the new year’s objectives list as it is far from me the discipline of following such directions. Priorities change as our lives change with a faster pace than we have ever seen, and what we consider mundane is swifted accordingly.
These being said, my first week started in a high speed. And for a corporate girl like me some mornings only need a quick fix so I’m sharing my products of choice list with you for a 10 minute makeup look with a minimal effort.
After moisturizing my face and applying a primer, I reach either for the CC cream either for a foundation that doesn’t need much of blending – this would be MaxFactor Facefinity All Day Flawless foundation (you can read the full review here). For the eyelids I would use a nude matte shadow in a neutral color like the mono from NYX (Blame It On Midnight). Instead of eyeliner, I would use a bronze or brown pencil (like this chocolate brown from Bourjois) and if I want a more dramatic effect (like for a day to night transition look) I will use a black pencil along the (upper) waterline like the waterproof black kohl from Flormar.
For highlighting I would use the lovely mosaic powder from Melkior (for a full review, click here) but also for a discreet and matte effect I use a white pencil (this one is from Avon, Color Trend collection – which I might recommend for you as it has a fair ratio of price – quality). To add a little colour in the cheeks I always go for NARS Orgasm, my all times favorite blush – I really love the pink golden effect this product has.
The final stroke will come with a touch of mascara – I am currently using this one from Rimmel Scandaleyes (you can read the full review here) but as this is not the best money can buy, any mascara for volume that you have will do and with this I am ready for another day at the office.
What about you, what products do you choose when you are in a hurry? Leave a small comment with your 10 minutes makeup of choice.
Until the next time, wear red lipstick and glitter all the way:-)
