My “No Time” Make Up Routine

Posted on: March 23, 2012

This is what I do to my face if I don’t have much time in the morning to get ready.

♥ Benefit Dr Feelgood – I apply this with my fingers just to where I have fine lines, to sort of fill them in.
♥ Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Foundation in 005 Light Beige – I dot this onto my cheeks and forehead then blend it into my skin with my fingers.
♥ Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in 01 Fair – I put a little of this on my dark circles.
♥ Fyrinnae Fluff Powder – I lightly dust this over my entire face.
♥ Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Farenheit Fab – I apply this with my finger all over my lid.
♥ Benefit Magic Ink – I just do a quick thin to slightly thicker line from a third in on my lid and then slightly flick out the corner.
♥ Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in 004 Black Brown – I go over my brows to make them look darker and thicker.
♥ Sleek Contour Powder in Light  – I put this in the hollows of my cheeks, along my jaw and forehead.
♥ MAC Blush in Peachykeen – I apply this on the apples and along my cheekbones.
♥ Benefit They’re Real – One coat of this is all I need. I put it on my top and bottom lashes.

I can get all this onto my face without it looking completely awful in just under 15 minutes!

Do you have a go to routine for when you’re in a rush?

Really want to get They’re Real Mascara, do you find it really impressive?

I do find it really good to be honest. I like how the brush separates my lashes while giving them both length and volume. It’s also really black and doesn’t flake off. I was using Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara before I got this and I prefer it to that, if that helps! x

Helps a lot because that’s my absolute fav mascara up until now!

Haha oh how strange! Glad I could help, let me know what you think if you try it out x

I keep coming across Benefit cosmetics we don’t have it in New Zealand, but it looks amazing!

Aww that’s not fair! Are there any New Zealand exclusive brands that I’d be jealous of? 😉 I honestly do love Benefit products, I think it helps a lot that the girls that work at one of the counters near me are so lovely. There are a few products I’m not overly impressed with but nothing I hate and I’ve tried pretty much everything they do! x
