Sneak Peek: 5 Minute Work Make-Up Created With January’s Box

We wanted to make life a little easier for you all this month. Our resident make-up artist, Claire Farrell, has put together a simple but sophisticated back to work make-up look that takes five minutes to apply, which means more time in bed each morning.  Glossies can find all three essential products in January’s GLOSSYBOX and everyone else can get their hands on our boxes here. Now where’s that snooze button?

First line your upper lashes with Me Me Me Eye Liner in Clay, a blendable kohl pencil in brown. Apply it in short strokes, keeping it tight along the roots of lashes and use your little finger to soften the liner and wing it up at the outer corners of the eyes. Curl lashes and finish with mascara.

To lift and brighten skin, apply Nicka K New York Colourluxe Powder Blush over cheekbones. A delicate and buildable pinky peach shade, it’s a great complexion warmer on a grey winter’s day.

Now blend Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow highlighter onto the tops of cheekbones, beneath the brows, over the cupid’s bow and into the inner corners of the eyes for a ‘light switched on from within’ look.

Finish lips with a matte, creamy swipe of Bellapierre Cosmetics Cheek & Lip Stain – which was in December’s GLOSSYBOX – for a subtle, yet polished day look.
