This morning we slept in late and I had very minimal time to put on my make-up. If it was just a school run morning, the slap could have waited until I got home but this was a working day. I invigilate exams and the boys look terrified enough without me sharing my bare face and the evidence of all the late and broken nights. In fact, I ate toast out of my handbag so that I had enough time to put on my face!
Speedy make-up is not the time to start experimenting with new looks so I have a few tried and tested things that I reach for. In my case it's bronzer, MAC Cubic blusher, RBR Solstice Halcyon or Atlas Swallotail, pencil eyeliner, mascara and undereye concealer. I've named Cubic blusher, Solstice Halcyon and Atlas Swallowtail in particular as I really can't mess up with these colours. For most people these are not exciting colours but they just seem to enhance my features and make me look more put together. The neighbours who watched me running whilst stuffing my face with toast would probably disagree with the put together bit!
I was interested to hear about your trusted items. What do you pick up when you need to apply a face in a couple of minutes? Do you have some well worn, trusted favourites like me?
