Hello! Long time no speak! For those who follow Lorna you may recognise this little post however I wanted to share with those of you who may have missed this post, my go-to makeup routine for early autumn mornings when I've only got 5 minutes to spare!
My overall makeup looks remains pretty simple and similar throughout the school year however items such as foundation are constantly on rotation as I can't help but try new ones! My foundation of choice at the minute is the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation (or more recently Revlon Colorstay! ) which is really affordable and often of offfer for £5 in Boots. The great thing about this is that it actually does match my skin and doesn't leave me with mask lines ( not a good look!). I then use a combination of my Collection lasting perfection concealer for my blemishes and currently the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer as a lighter alternative under my eyes. Often, however, I do just reach for the collection for both to save time. I then set this with my trusty Stay Matte powder from Rimmel to keep my makeup in place through long school days.
For my eyes I like to keep a very neutral eye look. I am a sucker for MAC eyeshadows so have loved using Naked Lunch and All that Glitters in the past however I currently love using my MUA undressed palette over the top of my Bare Study paint pot ( MAC) as I can just use a wash of the lighter shades all over my lid then use a light flesh coloured shadow, or my stay matte powder, under my brow bone. I then just use one coat of mascara on my top lashes and recently have loved using my Bourjois 1 Second Mascara.
If I fancy some colour to my cheeks I often just reach for my MAC Soft and Gentle MSF as a simple wash of this can be used in place of bronzer, blush and highlight. If I fancy a little more colour, however, I have recently loved using my £2 bargain Natural Collection blusher in 'Peach Melba' which I love using in the hollows of my cheeks.
For my lips I often just reach for a clear gloss or lip-balm, my favourite for this being the Balmi Square Lip Balms.
What makeup routine do you follow when you're in a rush?
