We all have those days where we choose sleeping in over perfect make up. While it might be wonderful to have had that extra beauty sleep, especially now in winter, I still want to look want smart enough for work. After wolfing down breakfast, getting dressed and fixing my hair, this generally leaves me with just a few minutes for make up. This is no cause for alarm because with a few key make up items, I can pull this off.
To start with I'll apply my foundation and blend it with my fingers rather than a sponge or foundation brush to save time. I'll dab on a little Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream to moisturise my lips. Next I use this amazing Elizabeth Arden eye shadow duo and apply the light gold shade in the inner corner of my eyelid and the brown shade on the outer corner. These are such beautiful neutral shades and couldn't be more perfect for moments when time is of the essence. I'll line my top lid with liquid liner then apply my favourite mascara, the Maybelline Great Lash mascara to open up my
eyes. I use Elizabeth Arden's Beautiful Color Radiance Blush on my cheeks to add some colour. Finally I use MAC Snob for a lovely soft pink lip.
Voilà! No need to panic. With these few products I know I'll be out the door in no time and look perfectly acceptable to face a busy day.
