Honestly, most days I am lucky if I am able to walk out the door with my scrub pants on the right way round let alone have a full face of makeup on my face. Nevertheless, when I do have a little extra time to put on more than mascara, that is where my trusty five minutes makeup routine comes in to play.
To begin with, I use the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue all over my face either with my fingers or a Real Techniques sponge. This is great for evening out my skin tone while giving me some SPF 30. I then like to give my face a little bit of color by using some bronzer. The bronzer that I have been loving lately is the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer.
Now, that my face is done I move on to my eyes. I like to take a fluffy shadow brush and dip into a matte shade to give a wash of color on my eyelid. I focus most of the color on my lid and then blend outwards from that point. My go-to colors are mainly warm browns but I have been using the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions for the last couple months.
My favorite shade from the palette is the chocolate/purple color with works really well with my skin tone. I like to at least apply one coat of mascara to finish off my eye look. For the daytime I like my eyelashes to look pretty natural and that is what the Marc Jacobs Noir Velvet mascara does to my eyelashes .
To finishes off my look, I will throw on my lip balm like the glossier Blamdotcom. This routine takes me no longer than five minutes to do but it just gives me that little bit more put together look when I walk out the door.
Do you have your quick makeup routine when you’re in a rush? Do you have a makeup product that you always put on ?

that tiny palette is gorgeous: the reds are my go-to colors as eyeshadows.
