~5 Minute FOTD~ Antipodean Beauties Challenge


This weeks challenge is the 5 minute face which to me means quick (obviously) and simple. When I’m low on time, I try to spend what little time I’ve got on those things that matter the most. For me, that’s even skin, concealed dark circles and brows. I feel like focusing on these things makes me look put together even when I’m short on time.


Generally, a five minute face shouldn’t involve a lot of products and the more multi-tasking products you have, the better. My five minute face does involve more products than some but they’re products that are quick and fuss free to apply.


As I didn’t have time to mix foundations, I used the Make Up For Ever HD foundation (in #153) which I know is the right colour and finishes nicely. I used my usual under eye concealing routine which I talked about in my last post here. I finished up my skin by setting it with some MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Medium Dark and some bright blush in the form of Smashbox Radiance Blush.


For the eyes, I applied Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in Taupe on the lid and then blended out the crease with MAC Cork eyeshadow. I also curled my lashes and put on some Loreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black. I then filled in my brows with MAC Brow Crayon in Stud.


I finished up the look by applying Burberry Lip Glow in Rosewood. This is such a lovely, easy to wear my lips but better shade. It feels great on the lips and isn’t sticky like some other glosses. The shades vary depending on the day, but I always end up using a gloss or sheer lipstick such as something from the Rouge Coco Shine range.

What’s your most important makeup product when you have 5 minutes?
