5 minute make up look!


Now, I know all of us are rushed for time in some way, whether it's because the alarm hasn't gone off, or because you have two babies holding on to each leg (like me). But, that doesn’t mean there’s no time for a fast make up fix before you run out the door. So, I thought I would post my quickest make up look, which is mainly thanks to the fact that it uses just two key products: mascara, and a cream blush, also used as a lipstick. ;o)

This look can be done literally within five minutes or less. The star product and what makes this look so quick (and portable) is MAC Cremeblend Blush in 'Britwit'. MAC has five colours to choose from in this range, so take your pick. The reason I love ‘Britwit’ is because it gives such a natural-looking flush, especially on my skin tone.


It is creamy in texture, but blends so easily into the skin. I literally applied my foundation (MAC Face & Body C5 - 50ml, £22.50), which is optional, then mascara (L’OrĂ©al False lash Telescopic mascara in black, £10.99)  and used my fingers to apply the MAC Cremeblend blush (£18.50) to my cheeks. You could use a stippling brush if you prefer, but I just find it easier to blend with my finger for this particular product. I then finish the look by applying the blush to my lips. And that's it! 

What I love is that I can carry the MAC Cremeblend around in my purse and re-apply throughout the day. Because it is cream-based, it gives such a fresh and dewy look which, by now, you probably know I am obsessed with. Below are some pictures of the completed look.



If you have even less time, scrap the foundation and you are left with such a simple, yet effective look, with just two products! I love quick and easy looks. The less products the better, I say. Have you got any quick make up tip ideas? I would love to hear, if you do. Comment below. Thanks.
