Today I thought I would make a post on my quickest and most natural looking makeup routine. I always go for this minimal look when I don't have anywhere important to be like if I'm at uni, the library, or just chilling with friends. 
I am not totally sure why but I just can't stand having a lot of makeup on when I am studying, I think it's because I end up touching my face more than I realise. 

Here are the products I am currently using:

Here is how it looks:

The Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude foundation is currently my favourite foundation for summer. It gives a really light, even and smooth coverage without looking at all cakey. The shade I am wearing is 20 'cameo'. 

On top of my foundation I like to use the Match Perfection concealer by Rimmel London. This is great and saves time as it is also a highlighter. I apply this under my eyes, on my brow bone and at the sides of my nose. 

I don't contour my face everyday as I feel like it takes a lot more time and concentration to do it properly and I would be worried that I hadn't blended it well enough if I did it in a rush. I do however like to add some colour to my cheek bones everyday to make my foundation look more natural. I either use my Milani blush or a light bronzer. Currently I am using the Tan Liquid Glow by Seventeen. This adds colour while creating a more dewy look which I feel makes me look more fresh and awake. 

For my brows I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Taupe. I do prefer the way my brows look using the Dipbrow Pomade but again that takes a lot more time so I just quickly fill them in with the pencil when I don't have much time.

For my eyes I will use eyeliner depending on how much time I have as I like to draw more attention to my eyes when I have more natural looking makeup on. The eyeliner I am currently using is the Max Factor Colour X-Pert Waterproof Eyeliner and the mascara I like to use for this look is Show Girl by Barry M as it literally leaves no clumps whatsoever and therefore looks a lot more natural.

So that's it for my natural 5 minute makeup routine, I hope you enjoyed reading!
Lots of love xxx
