Since starting working full time over 3 years ago I have managed to shave nearly an hour off my getting ready time in the morning. Through a combination of straightening my hair at night and refining my makeup routine this is what I've come up with to allow me to apply the slap in just 5 minutes.
First off, a primer that has helped my skin so much since I've started using it - the La Roche Posay - Efficlar Duo. Keeps my skin hydrated during the day and keeps my foundation on that bit longer. For a foundation with staying power I head for my Vichy Dermablend in Nude, this is used on days I have meetings or need to make sure that at 3pm I still look like I've just applied my makeup. I can use a tiny bit and buff it in quickly with just about any foundation brush I lay my hands on because it blends so easily - just be quick about it. A couple of spots of the Clinique concealer, I have no idea what shade/type this is (helpful) all I know is that it works in covering the massive dark circles that surround my eyes. A sweep of my favourite mascara and bronzer and I'm ready for the world... well...after coffee.
