What I Use To Get Ready For Work In Just Five Minutes

I love feeling energized as soon as I get out of bed in the morning, to keep that feeling going I like to make my morning routine as speedy and smooth as possible. In order to do that, I need some products that’ll help me get ready for whatever the day will bring in just five minutes but keep me looking seriously put-together.

Here are a few of the products I’m swearing by at the moment, trust me, you’ll love them if you want to be a go-getter in the morning!

 

1. I swapped my foundation for this serum

 

Once you try this serum, you’ll never want to use anything else! It contains Crithmum Seaweed Extract which helps detoxify tired skin, Punarva Extract to soothe and Hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plump. It was recommended to me by the CGD girls in the office and has replaced my foundation in the morning entirely! You can buy it here.

2. Next I use my favorite eyeliner

This eyeliner really does do what it says on the tin – it stays in place all day! It’s also incredibly easy to apply, thanks to the fine, precise ended pen-tip and creates a beautifully defined line in a few seconds. It’s really difficult to make mistakes, which is great. It’s the perfect eyeliner, whether you’re a cat-eye pro or a complete novice. Buy it here.

3. Now it’s time for a quick coat of mascara

When you don’t have time to give your lashes multiple coats of mascara, you need a mascara that works in just one coat. This one was recommended to me by our managing editor Beth. She told me it was the best mascara she’d ever tried, and it’s true! One swipe makes your lashes longer and thicker, and it doesn’t drop, streak, or leak. Check out the reviews here.

 

4. A quick brow touch up

There’s no secret to speedy, perfect brows. All I do is dip my brush into Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade and draw tiny little hairs to add a bit of color and definition to my brows. You don’t have to draw them on or take hours to perfect the shape, Dipbrow can literally work miracles in just a few moments. It’s available here.

5. Lastly, one swipe of lipstick and I’m ready to go

The lipstick that I only need to apply once is by Huda Beauty. One swipe of nude lipstick and I’m ready to go, it doesn’t dry, won’t leave marks on your coffee cup and might only need a touch up before you leave the office. See the colors here.
