I don’t know about you but time management isn’t one of my strengths. If I really have to I’m usually on time but not without being in a total rush. Especially when it comes to early morning lectures! I’m just not really a morning person. I really like my bed. Actually I love my bed and I hate having to leave it, especially on cold and early mornings. Hence I’ve found myself being in a total rush millions of times.
Now I’m also the kind of person, who rather skips breakfast to get a few more minutes of sleep but I still want to look presentable, so here are my favorite products to use when I’m in a rush.
Usually I start off with my base (slapping on concealer and foundation and setting everything with powder) but everyone has different favorite products here, which is why I’m going to skip that or this post.
Eye Make Up
So I’m in a total rush, so now I have to decide eyeshadow or eyeliner? I’m definitely an eyeliner kind of girl. In fact me without eyeliner on is a very rare sight! Very very rear! So obviously I’m going for the eyeliner and my go to one for weeks now has been the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil in Demolition. Yes, I’ve mentioned this a lot already but it’s one of my favorite make up items at the moment. I love the dark brown shade and it’s just so creamy and easy to apply and it lasts like a dream.
Next up is mascara. I just can’t leave the house without mascara because my eyelashes are blonde, so if I don’t wear mascara it looks like I have no lashes. One of my favorite drugstore mascaras is the Essence I love Extreme Mascara. This one is so affordable and so impressive! There’s a pink and a black edition and I have no idea what the difference is, to be honest, but I like the design of the black one better, which is why I always purchase that one. Maybe I should find out what the real difference is.
No time for contouring so all I’m doing is whirling my brush around in my Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick. This one’s a limited edition and includes a beautiful bronzed shade, a rose gold, a gold and a silver beige kind of shade. Basically it creates a beautiful mixture of those colors and provides your skin with a lovely subtle glow. In a way it functions as a blush and highlighter in one.
This is a definitely an optional step and nothing I do each time. Sometimes I don’t really feel like putting anything on my lips except for maybe a lip balm but when I do, I’m really liking the Essence XXL Longlasting Lipgloss at the moment. The reason why I love this so much is because comes with a matt effect and it’s the only lip gloss I’ve ever tried that’s not sticky at all. I have this in the shade 05 Velvet Rose, which is a lovely neutral pink. I’m a lip product junkie, which is why I tend to reach for a different lip product a lot but this one I’m totally loving at the moment and I think I might add a few more to the collection.
Basically this is my go to make up look whenever I’m in a rush and though I switch up the products these are the ones I definitely reach for the most.
What are your go to in a rush favorites?
