5 Minute Make Up

Sometimes a full face of make up isn't needed or we just don't have the time so heres what I use when I only have 5 minutes to do my make up.

For base, I used the Clinique CC cream, I find this gives me enough coverage and it just gives my face a natural look, I use my fingers to apply this instead of a brush as I find that it applies easier.  I used the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer on any blemishes that weren't completely covered up by the CC cream and under my eyes to brighten them up.  Finishing off the base with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder which I absolutely love, it sets my base perfectly and keeps me from going shiny throughout the day.  I used this Mac Mineralize Blush (unsure of colour as as one of my roommates in Sydney gave it to me and it's rubbed off the back) on the hollows of my cheek and around my temple, it has a lovely golden shimmer which is perfect for adding abit of colour and warmth to my face.  For my eyes I used the Clinique Lash Power Mascara which is a buildable, long wearing mascara and I love using it as a day mascara.  Although this is a 5 minute make up, no way can you neglect the brows, Benefit Gimme Brow is so quick and easy to use for just filling the brows in.  Finishing off with my Clinique Chubby Stick in Woppin' Watermelon, this product is so moisturising and just gives that hint of colour that you need.

What are your 5 minute make up staples?



  1. When I'm in a rush I use the Garnier Skin Renew Miracle BB Cream, the Collection Lasting perfection Concealer, the rimel stay matte powder, the Rimmel ScandelEyes Mascara and for my brows I use the MUA Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrow Kit :) I then use whatever lipgloss I see first xx Great blog-post :)

    1. Sounds great! I love Rimmel Stay Matte Powder! :) xx

  2. I have to try the clinique cc cream, do you know if it would be good for combination to oily skin?

    1. My skin is combination/oily and it works perfectly for me :) xx
