Out-The-Door Beauty

Whether you've hit the snooze button one too many times (story of our lives) or you're just a girl who's always on-the-go, it is possible to speed through your beauty routine so you can run out the door looking like your fabulous self in no time. 

If there's one thing I simply CANNOT skip when I'm in a hurry, it's cleansing my skin in the morning. Not only does it remove any build up that has accumulated overnight, but it gives me a clean canvas for my makeup. After I've cleansed and moisturised my skin, I follow up with a primer like the Urban Decay Optical Illusion Complexion Primer that I have been loving to absolute bits lately.

Cushion foundations are my go-to when I'm in a hurry because of how quick and easy they are to apply. L'Oreal's Nude Magique gets the job done while leaving my complexion looking healthy and radiant. The coverage can be built up from sheer to medium, but if you do require a touch more coverage a concealer is definitely the way to go. To ensure my base looks flawless as ever (and keep it that way), I always dust my face with a powder and what I like about the Infallible Compact Powder Foundation is that it adds a little more coverage without it feeling heavy or looking cakey on the skin.

Revlon's Highlighting Palette in 'Peach Glow' is a wonderful multitasker so it saves you a lot time from having to use three separate products to bronze, highlight and add a pop of colour to your cheeks. Your base is pretty much done at this point so you can move onto the pretty peepers. 

Now eyeshadow is an optional step but if you are wanting to add a wash of colour to the lid, the e.l.f. Smudge Pot is a great one to opt for. Just dip your finger into the creamy eyeshadow and sweep it across the lid, it's as easy as that! 'Cruisin' Chic' will you with a lovely shimmery taupe shade that will enhance your overall eye look. No makeup look is complete without a few coats of your favourite mascara. Speaking of favourite, I've managed to break free from my Lash Sensational and fallen back in love with the Bourjois Volume Glamour Effet Push Up Black Serum Mascara. It gives my lashes intense volume without them feeling crunchy and best thing of all, it doesn't flake off under your eyes during the day.  

I love me an effortless, no fuss lip colour like the Sexy Balm by L'Oreal, because nobody has time to carefully outline their lips and then apply lipstick over the top when you're running late. 'Whaaat' is a sheer nude with little flecks of shimmer to give your lips some dimension and it is incredibly hydrating, so it's pretty much a lipstick and lip balm hybrid. 

Lastly, a spritz of the beautiful fragrance that is 'Olympea' (sweet, floral and sophisticated) to give you a boost of confidence so you're ready to take on the day.
