Running Late Makeup!

We all have those days where we press the snooze alarm too many times than we should have done, and end up having to compromise with our traditional everyday makeup routine, and after having quite a few of those recently I decided I needed to finish this after it being in my drafts, and upload this for you guys!

So for me my hair is my first priority, so I will quickly clip in my hair extensions and if it's still styled from yesterday then I will leave it but if not then I will pull it to one side and plait it, leaving out my fringe. I will them secure it with a rubber band and tug out the loose bits to create a messy vibe. I use a bobby bin to secure the back so it won't fall out during the day! 

Now I move into my face, firstly I use my "PONDS Hydronourishing moisturiser", and blend this into my face and neck in circular motions. Because I don't have time for my usual BB Cream or foundation i'll will go straight into concealer. If you've slept in later than usually this is most likely because your tired so the aim of my makeup on thee particular days is to make me look more awake and less like a zombie! So I use my "Maybelline Fitme Concealer" this is a really creamy and easily blendable concealer. I apply this like a triangle underneath my eyes, on any spots that I have or any imperfections or redness I have. It is really quite an all round concealer. I then use my "Real Techniques Buffing Brush" to blend this in, I may alternate between using the brush and my fingers. Using a brush saves a lot more time hence why I'm using for a running late tutorial! I then use a brightening concealer underneath my eyes this will really brighten up your complexion. You can also use it down the bridge of your nose, above your cheekbones (see my recent post on How to Apply Blush, Bronzer and Highlighter) and on your brow bone. I like using the "Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer" or the "Benefit Erase Paste" in shade 01 as it is a lot lighter than my complexion. I then use my MAC Blush, which is a light link shade and apply this on the apples of my cheeks. This really just makes you look fresh faced and awake. I really recommend applying blush when your tired or running late - it can defiantly change your whole look! You can set this with a powder or setting spray, whatever works best for you! I personally prefer powder and use my "Mac Mineralise Skinfinish" and my "Real Techniques Powder Brush" to evenly apply this. 

Eye makeup can really make you look wide awake, and alert so I personally find this the most important part. I first use a "Rimmel Eye Pencil in White" to line my waterline and inner corner this can really open up your eyes and it really creates a beautiful effect. I then use my "Maybelline Volum' Express Colossal Cateyes Mascara" this is an amazing elongating and volumising mascara I really recommend this. I apply this on both my bottom and top lashes to really enlargen my eyes. It really makes you look wide awake. 

I apply my EOS lipbalm to smoothen my lips, and it gives a glossy natural look, and it tastes really good too! 

So this is my makeup routine if I'm running late it only takes a maximum of ten minutes with practise! All the steps are optional but this is what I recommend to look awake and ready for the day! Although I have used these products that does no by mean you have to use these exact products - these are the ones I use and love but you all have your personal preferences and favourites! I hope you liked this and it helped you! I hope you have enjoyed your first two weeks at school, and if your in year eleven I wish you all the best with your GCSE's I am sure you will do yourselves proud! 

See you next week, love
