Lazy Mornings Makeup Routine

mac face and body foundations
Most morning, I usually stay in bed til the very last minute possible. Which has a huge impact on the time I have to do my makeup, and I am not really the type of person that can pull off a decent look on a moving training or bus. This is where I have to be really clever and make it work so that my relationship with my bed is not strained (cos that would be really bad). 

For these types of days, (which are most days if I am being honest) I go for the Mac Face and Body Foundation, which is really quick to apply and doesn't require much effort especially when I use it with a large tapered kabuki face brush which makes it super super easy. Then I go in with my LA Girl Pro Concealer, which is just awesome. It's perfect for under the eyes and for any blemishes I have. When I am feeling extra lazy, I have used this concealer for my whole face. It's a perfect colour match for me and I love the finish it doesn't look cakey or heavy on the skin. I use this cute mini Make Up Forever setting powder to set in my concealer. I am really liking this powder, it feels so lightweight and it's practically undetectable on the skin.

I am really lucky that I have full eyebrows that don't require much attention. The Revlon Eyebrow Fantasy Pencil, is my go to eyebrow pencil, it's super easy to use and I am not really the best with doing my eyebrow and with this you don't ever over do it. It also comes with a handy tinted gel, so you can set it in place. I will then use the Maybelline 24hrs Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in On & On Bronze, which require minimum effort but looks like you put in so much effort. I love that these eyeshadows are so easy to blend in and stay put for the majority of the day.

To put a little colour back into my face and make me look alive, I use the Revlon Highligting Palette in Bronze Glow. This adds a hint of colour, and some glow which makes you look like you really put some effort into your look.

I will usually stick on a lip balm or tinted lip balm just to add some colour to my lips. At the moment I have been using the Blistex MedPlus lip balm, because my lips haven't been in tip top condition.

I love makeup but I love sleep more, what is a girl to do? I love these quick makeup routines well because they are really quick and easy and I get to sleep more. Let me know, what your makeup tips for morning when you have very little time.
