Beauty School: No-Makeup Makeup Look In 5 Minutes

Beauty School: No-Makeup Makeup Look In 5 Minutes

As the mornings get colder, we all want that extra hour in bed in the morning. School has started again and parents are run off their feet so most of us don’t have time for applying a full face of makeup. I’ve come up with the perfect, 5 minute makeup tutorial that will leave you looking naturally radiant and ready to take on whatever the day throws at you!

Step 1: Moisturise

Firstly, I use the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturiser to nourish and hydrate my skin, adding a healthy glow.

Step 2: Concealer

Next I apply concealer round my nose and onto any red bits and blend this in using a damp beauty blender. I love using the Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer all over my face because it’s so creamy, blendable and affordable for everyday use.

Step 3: Blusher

Add a little blusher to the apples of your cheeks for a hint of colour. I love to use the NARS Cosmetics Orgasm Blush because it’s such a fresh hue!

Step 4: Brows

I absolutely love Elizabeth Arden’s 8 Hour range because it is so versatile. I used the Eight Hour Cream Nourishing Lip Balm for this look but you can also use their cream for the same effect!

This wonder product is a handbag essential that I smooth onto my eyebrows for a quick fix. I then comb the product through my brows using a spoolie (or an old toothbrush). This keeps them in place all day!

If you would like to add colour and more structure to your brows too, the Bang Beauty Cream Brow in your September box is perfect.

Step 5: Get a glow

You can also apply Eight Hour Cream or Lip Balm to your cheekbones and brow bones for natural radiance. This adds a really natural looking glow that’s subtle yet chic.

Step 6: Lips

My third use for the 8 Hour Cream is using it on my lips to add natural shine and to prevent chapped lips as the weather gets chilly.

Step 7: Mascara

Finally, if you are in a rush, mascara is a must – it frames your eyes perfectly and is so quick to do! The L’Oreal Paris False Lash Waterproof Mascara is one of the best out there. It’s great for curving lashes and staying put!

Toning down your makeup is a must to let your skin breathe and to look fresh in a rush. September is a busy time so it’s vital you all master a quick no-makeup makeup look that fits into your routine. The key is focusing on a few products, which are multitaskers and handbag ready.
