Today, I had less than five minutes to get ready and get out of the door to meet a whole group of girlfriends for lunch. While I’d love to say I’d go out without any makeup whatsoever, let’s be honest, we all need a little help.
The quickest eye makeup ever was the order of the day – a smudged eyeliner and mascara was about all I had time for, and this was the result: a rather smokey, intense eye look that was perfect with a peachy nude lip.
The Sephora Waterproof Jumbo Liner 12 Hour Wear Eyeliner in Dark Brown Matt goes on super smoothly, no dragging or feathering. Applied as an eyeliner at the base of the lashes and blended out with a small brush to soften and thicken the line, it gives a lovely intensity to the gaze. An easier to get hold of version of this is the Rimmel ScandalEyes Shadow Stick in Bad Bronze.
Followed by a lick of mascara, I plumped for my current fave, the Max Factor Masterpiece Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising Mascara. It’s intensely black, which means it emphasises my lashes with just one coat and gives my eyes such definition that I can go without any black eyeliner. You can read the full review here.
Paired with Barry M’s Gelly Hi Shine Lip Pencil in Sigma Coral in and touch of bronzer, I honestly was out the door in five minutes flat.
