The 4-Minute Make-up Routine For Low Maintenance Women

You don’t want your morning makeup routine to take forever, do you? If your a person where you want to sleep as late as possible, but at the same time you still want to show up looking gorgeous for the day. Here’s some good news for you: you don’t have to spend ages applying make-up I always think less is more and it really is true.

Here’s a great 4-minute routine that will have you out the door in less than 20 minutes.

1. Wear a tinted moisturiser

There are plenty of tinted moisturisers out there at the moment - two of my favourites are No7 and L’Oreal. Tinted moisturiser is such a good way to give your skin a natural, healthy glow without looking like your wearing a mask full of foundation.

2. Use a concealer pen to cover blemishes

Using a concealer pen is much quicker and easier when it comes to focusing on the areas you want to cover. This will save so much time!

3. Use bronzer to contour your face

Bronzer is such a great way to give you a natural glow, that’s if it’s applied correctly. I wear bronzer every day and it definitely does the trick. I would recommend the GOSH Copenhagen ‘Bronzing Pearls’ and the L’Oreal ‘Glam Bronze’ which has a gorgeous cream texture to it and isn’t too dark on the skin. TIP: Only apply bronzer in areas in which you want to enhance more.

4. Grab an eyeshadow stick for your eyes

If your a person where you hate messing around with different eyeshadow colours on palettes then go for an eyeshadow stick. So easy and simple just swipe across the eyelid and there you have it! You are good to go!

5. Use a nude liner along your lids

A great tip: A nude liner is neutral so it goes with many eyeshadow colours. This is a great trick to make your eyes look bigger and more awake. Just apply along your waterline and away you go.

6. Add on a couple coats of mascara

Swipe two coats of mascara on your lashes, the most obvious choice is black.

7. And lastly add a nude lipstick or lipgloss

And there you have it!
