Hello everyone and welcome to my speedy 10-minute makeup for a natural glow. This look was inspired by Christmas. Not Christmas in the Seasonal sense, but by how Christmas panned out.
I have always considered Christmas as downtime. Relaxed with lots of tv watching and food coma sleeping. This year was different and as I said in my Happy New Year & 2018 Goals post, it took me by surprise. It was busy and I found myself without much time to get ready.
This rushed situation led to thinking about quick makeup looks and then I realised... ding ding ding... I have been doing this for years! Especially during the colder months when the alarm goes off and outside of the snuggly covers, it feels like the Arctic. If like me, those last few savoured moments in the warm extend way beyond the time I should have hauled myself out of bed then you might often find yourself feeling the pressure when you only have a short time to get ready and get yourself into work!
And so onto the makeup. I remember a time, in my early twenties, when I used to go to work without makeup. No foundation, no concealer, no mascara even! Nothing. These days that wouldn't happen. Mascara would be a minimum. I do risk heading to the supermarket with a naked face but I think that is on the basis that I am unlikely to bump into anyone.
I wanted to put together a look that could be created quickly and simply. In the past, I have tended to use multiuse products which saves a little on the faffing around locating the things you need. And so this quick look uses just 6 products, or seven if you can't live without eyelash primer.
