The 2 Minute Face

2 Minute Face

When all you’ve got is 2 minutes to get ready it can be quite the challenge. What products do I reach for? What colors work well together? All these questions run through my head while the clock is ticking away. When I’m pressed for time like that I think back to the basics to achieve that 2 Minute Face.

Tinted Moisturizer: I’ve talked about it countless times but the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is truly one of my all time favorites. It provides light coverage while still color correcting my skin. It has SPF 20 and is super moisturizing for my dry skin.

Eyebrows: Can’t forget the most important part! I use my MAC brow pencil in ‘lingering’ and fill it in quickly. No need for brow gel as it has a pretty waxy consistency and makes your brows stay in place.

Mascara: I apply once coat of the Max Factor False Lash Effect as it provides enough volume and I don’t have time to wait to apply a second coat. Moving on!

Concealer: I use my Manhattan concealer after applying my mascara so I can correct any mistakes I made. I put it underneath my eyes and blend it out with my fingertips.

Blush: I like using a pearlescent blush as it will also act as my highlighter and give me a nice glow. I’m loving my Catrice Illuminating blush in the shade “I am nuts about you” as it really does give me that natural illuminating flush.

Lips: MAC lipsticks are something you can never go wrong with. I love my MAC Viva Glam 5 so much that I’m already half way through the tube after less than a year – a new record for me! It’s the perfect nude with a hint of mauve mixed in. I just love it so much!

That is my 2 minute face for you! What products do you reach for when you’re pressed for time?
