Is your 5 minute face ready to rock?

Is your 5 minute face ready to rock?

Yep, it’s another one of those mornings when you didn’t hear the alarm, or you just had to grab a few extra zzz’s (your late night shenanigans will be our little secret) and now you’re running late for work. Again.

It’s a bad way to start the day and the thought of facing the world with a sleepy, bedheady, unmade up face is only making it worse.

But don’t stress sleepyhead, because we’ve asked our beauty experts for a fast and foolproof beauty routine that’ll get you out the door in 5 minutes flat. So after the world’s fastest shower, grab a coffee (instant of course, no time for the fancy stuff) and let’s get you gorgeous.

5 mins to go – Fly the foundation and cue the concealer. Banish bags, dark circles and blemishes using a flat concealer brush.

4 mins to go – A little colour on your cheeks will give you that fresh “oh I’ve had a fabulous night’s sleep” kind of glow. Whether you prefer a powder or a cream, apply it on the apple of your cheek and blend the colour vertically with a brush or sponge.

3 mins to go – Open up sleepy eyes with a volumizing mascara. Roll the brush from the base of the lashes to the tip to separate lashes and avoid tell-tale clumps. Apply two good coats and you shouldn’t need eye shadow.

2 mins to go– Eyebrows provide a frame for that lovely face of yours, so if you haven’t had them professionally groomed or dyed lately (tut tut), take a minute to brush them and pencil in any gaps.

60 seconds to go – Get lippy with a gloss or sheer lipstick. It’s quicker to apply than a dark lipstick, virtually mistake-proof and gives you a healthy, shiny pout.

Voila! Your 5-minute face is ready to rock.
