A Quick Morning Beauty Routine

| A Quick Morning Beauty Routine! |

Gone are the days when I used to sit at my vanity table for hours applying my makeup. In the last year or so I feel like I've finally curated my makeup routine and found a few looks that are quick and easy to achieve. For today's post, I wanted to round up my top products that are quick and effortless to use and will have you out the door in a flash.

1) The 'Do-It-All' Moisturiser:
I love a glowy, hydrating primer but when I'm in a rush I usually just prep my skin with a moisturiser, and recently I've found the best moisturiser for my quick 'in a rush' makeup routine. The Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream* nourishes and smooths the skin for easy foundation application, but what makes this moisturiser stand out from other moisturisers in my beauty stash is the radiant properties that provide the skin with a subtle glow. It's been making my tired lacklustre complexion look fresh and radiant and there's no need for an extra primer if I want to save some time.... and perhaps sneak in a few more minutes of beauty sleep! 

2) Tinted Moisturiser:
When I think of quick and effortless makeup, tinted moisturiser springs to mind! My all-time favourite is the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser as the dewy finish is perfect for my glowy makeup look but the medium coverage that I can get out of it means I can cover my acne without having to use concealer - saving me more time in my beauty routine! 

3) An Effortless Eye Look:
My effortless eye look includes a cream eyeshadow paired with a trusty mascara, and my favourites are the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara paired with the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise Cream Shadow in Star Gold*. The creamy formula of the eyeshadow allows me to blend it out in a few seconds and the rich bronzey copper hue adds definition and a little smokiness to the eyes, and as well as that the shade makes my blue eyes pop!

4) A Minimal Brow:
I love brow pomades and powders but when I'm doing a quick makeup look I usually opt for a pencil as they're quicker and easier to use. Recently I've been using the Eylure x Fleur De Force Brow Define* which is quick and easy to achieve a soft, natural brow look for everyday wear.

5) Glowing Cheeks:
There are two products I'm using at the moment to achieve a quick, glowing cheek. The Glossier Cloud Paints are cream blushers in squeezy tubes that blend out effortlessly and they're a lot more convenient to use than cream blushers in stick applicators. The shade Dusk is a brown-toned nude and using it as both a bronzer and blush suits my complexion, and allows me to use fewer products for my speedy makeup routine. 

You all know I love a glowy makeup look so I can't ever skip highlighter. The Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand is a staple in my makeup bag at the moment and it's quick to apply so I don't mind having it in my streamlined makeup routine.

6) A Low Maintenance Lip:
A low maintenance lip that doesn't require lip liner is essential for this type of makeup look and my top pick is the Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colour in Angel. This subtle and wearable perky pink hue will brighten up your makeup look for the Summertime!


What are your favourite products for your early morning beauty routine?
