I've been very drained emotionally lately and hence the lack of makeup posts. I should be over it soon and get back on track though. I slept in for much longer than I thought possible today (due to lack of sleep/stress last night) and then had only 3 minutes to do my face. That's when I thought about my quick routine. This is what I do when I don't have a lot of time:

1. Moisturizer face
2. Put on powder foundation (MUFE Duo Mat)
3. Wear my neutral eyebase (Painterly p/p)
4. Put on an overall shimmery champagne lid colour (Your Ladyship p/m)
5. Place a taupe or brown e/s in the crease and blend (either one of Copperplate, Smut, Cork or Mothbrown)
6. Line with a deep taupe liner (Clinique Smokey Gray gel liner), add mascara
7. Wear a brighter than usual blush (Love Thing mb)
8. Wear purpley pink lipstick (Up the Amp)

What is your quick routine like? What are some of the steps you'll be skipping and what are some of the steps that are still a "must" even in a hurry?

    I like your quick makeup routine!

    Mine is ;
    1. Fill in eyebrows
    2. Brush a wash of a pale beige E/S all over lid
    3. Shimmery highlight on browbone & in inner corners of eyes
    4. Cat flick liner & mascara
    5. Powder foundation
    6. Pale pink blush, like MAC's Well Dressed
    7. Nude pinky L/S

    When I type it out it seems a lot longer than I thought it was!... ;P

    thanks Tahti. I like yours too. When I don't have much makeup on my face I feel like my lips need to be loud, lol!

    I'm similar to you Saadeh!

    Shimmery light shadow on lid (change depends on my mood, sometimes just a benefit creaseless shadow like Sambady Loves Me with a nanogold perhaps on top) then a quick put on of foundation (I don't go to work w/out it) with a swipe of a beauty powder. usually in a rush I don't do liner, and I'm lucky to remember mascara!

    Hannah, I've also one with only foundation and mascara. I need foundation though, my skin has some redness to it that I hate :/
