My 5 Minute Makeup Routine (by Demi Mist)

My 5 minute makeup look
A few months ago when I was still an expectant lady, beauty and makeup was not on top of my priority list. Even though I did not wear makeup on a regular basis, sometimes I felt like I needed some colour on my face to make myself look and feel better. This is how I created this 5 minute makeup look. Usually 5 minutes is all that I could bear to spend on my beauty routine.

Looking good in such a short period of time can be a little bit of a challenge, but let's get started and see how it goes.

Here is my little tutorial and the five steps that I used to get the look:

  • Firstly, I applied some liquid foundation with my fingertips. I didn't use any concealer.
  • Secondly, I used some bronzing pearls on my cheeks and then spread them to my whole face and neck.

  • Champagne colour eyeshadow was used to achieve this simple and all natural makeup look. I often use this eyeshadow when I want to look subtle yet beautiful. I didn't use any brush for applying the eyeshadow, I used my fingers instead. 
  • Black eye pencil and mascara were used on my eyes.
  • I don't wear a lipstick every day, so I only applied a lip balm to give some shine to my lips.

Products and brands that I used to achieve my natural look:

  • Seventeen natural velvet foundation
  • Avon Glow bronzing pearls (costs approximately £8 to buy online)
  • Kryolan black eye pencil (approximately £5 online)
  • Sonya #149 Moonlight eyeshadow (costs approximately £7 to buy online)

  • Essence black mascara for volume (approximately £3 online)
  • Avon care protecting lip balm (approximately £2 online)

It is a very simple look, but it works great if you want to look natural and you only have 5 minutes left before you have to leave your house. Good luck in trying this out for yourself!
