pretty much this, just that I go for a grey/brown/silverish (read: Guerlain’s oriental metal) eye kohl

– Benefit Birthday Suit
– mascara
– quick wash of foundation
– cream blush
– cream luminizer
– lipgloss


I just do pressed powder, mascara, and a bit of the first lip gloss I can reach. Maybe a tiny bit of bronzer on my cheeks.

For eyes, I generally just do a wash of one of the lighter shades in the Naked 1 palette, or, if I want a little color to bring out my green eyes, a very light application L’Oreal’s Infallible Eyeshadow in Golden Sage, blended out with my fingers if I’m really rushing. The rest is simple: mascara (maybe eyeliner on my waterline if I have time), foundation, and either a light pink lip or just chapstick!

When I really, REALLY don’t have time. Like for example, I wake up with 15 minutes before class starts… Then I just slap on some tinted moisturizer and do my brows.

Since I have to make time to do my hair, change, grab something from the bridge, brush my teeth, I don’t have time to go through my whole face routine: cleanse, tone, exfoliate, apply sunscreen, put on primer, foundation with a brush, concealer, powder, contour, brows… that takes a while as you can imagine!

So for my face routine I just grab the Too Faced BB Cream, which has decent mineral-based sun protection (5% ZnO and TiO2), a smattering of antioxidants, good coverage, and I can apply it with my fingers. I keep a compact in my bag, so I can always powder and set everything after class. Of course I have to do my brows after this. I’m literally running through my room and bathroom lol! I’m sure everyone’s had those days. xD

Instead of taking me 1 hour to get ready, this way I can be out the door in 10 minutes. Not sure why compelled me to describe my rush morning routine in detail, but I guess I was bored? Haha!

Clairins – instant smooth line correcting concentrate (my go-to and new fave face primer)
Foundation – one I mixed
* Maybelline – concealer/colour corrector (if I have time)
Random face powder
Brows – Ck brown pencil
Ulta – blush
Hard Candy – bronzer
Stila – Kitten e/s and a random brown e/s
Hard Candy – mascara
* Random lip liner if I have time
EOS – lip ‘primer’
Random lipgloss or Revlon lipstick

Im pretty much low on time everyday lol so I always go for:

– Mascara (currently using Urban Decay Supercurl)
– Eyeliner (either a liquid for just the top, or I will tight line, currently using either Blinc Liquid Liner or MUFE Aqua Eyes Eyeliner both in Black)
– Blush (currently obsessed with Nars ‘Amour’)

MAC Patina on the lid and Brun in crease, mascara, black eyeliner, MSF Sunpower, Jack Black lip balm. Its my 10 min look:)

Strong lipstick, like MAC Scarlet Ibis, Prince Noir or Runaway Red is all I need if I have to run out fast; or add black pencil liner in the water lines and a nice highlighter/skin finish – I love Elude beauty powder and Crystal Pink Mineralize Skin Finish, for 2 different quick looks.

I curl my lashes, put on a coat of mascara, maybe a little ‘All That Glitters’ e/s (MAC) to make my eyes look a bit fresher, a light sweep of ‘Peachykeen’ blush (MAC), a bit of Bobbi Brown concealer where it’s needed and an Inglot lippaint.

Some foundation (thinking about getting a good tinted moisturizer for the job), fill in my brows, Sin + Buck from the Naked Palette, some gel liner, grab a lip product and I’m good to go!

-Laura Mercier Primer in Radiance
-MAC MSF Natural in Medium Dark on top so it’s not so flat looking.

-Daniel Sandler Watercolour blush in Dare

-Benefit “They’re Real!” mascara (lots of coats and curled with eyelash curler)
-Make Up For Ever waterproof cream black eye liner on upper waterline

-Daniel Sandler Watercolour blush in Dare

Concealer/corrector around the eyes, cream blush in plum or rose, a bold mascara, and maybe a lip color if I have one on hand. Pretty much my go-to look during the week when I am always short of time. 🙂

ysl touche eclat, garnier bb cream, some mac blot powder, barry m brow gel because they’re quite thick, a lush lip balm & i’m good to go!

MUFE Mat Velvet, (Virgin, Sin, Naked) from Naked 1 Palette, Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero on waterline and along top lashes, Diorshow Mascara, Urban Decay Lip Junkie in Naked, and Nars Deep Throat or Madly on cheeks. Usually done in 10 minutes.

MAC Painterly Paint Pot, any old neutral shadow in the crease (Patina, Omega, Centre Stage), Gosh pencil liner (black or Metallic Brass), Dolly Mix on my cheeks and Plumful on my lips.
