This is the makeup I wear all day, every day.
The first thing on my mind when I wake up is COFFEE. But not the instant type, or any I can make myself.
This means I need to get out the door quickly in the morning – preferably looking half decent.
So to get myself up and en route to my caffeine hit, I do this four-step routine every day. It's subtle, but brings a bit of colour (read LIFE) to your face without looking like you're wearing anything at all (a.k.a. I WOKE UP LIKE THIS).
1. HIGHLIGHT UNDER THE EYES.
Draw a line under the eye in the darkest part and blend with your finger. I also touch-up around my nose and any imperfections.
2. CREME BLUSH.
A little bit of colour on the cheeks works wonders in the morning. Using a creme blush (this looks the most dewy and natural), apply a small amount to the centre of your cheek and press the colour outwards to blend.
3. BRUSH-UP YOUR BROWS.
I never ever ever go anywhere without using the Bobbi Brown brow mascara. Brush the hairs upwards and outwards to open-up the eye area. I do this and skip mascara.
4. THE LIP TINT.
A bit of subtle colour on the lips will tie in with the cheeks and bring your face to life. A sheer lipstick one or two shades darker than your natural lip colour will also make your lips look bigger.
Optional: there's something about smelling amazing that makes you feel 10 x better, so I never leave the house without a quick spritz.
