Products that I Use To Achieve My Five Minute Face

This is a post that was inspired by Jane aka Modesty Brown  - UK beauty blogger extradionaire. Check out her blog - if you haven't already, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Beep, beep, beep it is known around the world as the most annoying sound there ever was and ever will be. It is the sound of your alarm waking you up (just as you were having that great dream about Ryan Gosling). So after hitting your snooze button once twice it is time to wake up and stumble to the coffee pot. You look at the clock and realize you've overslept! Breathe, with these products you can get it together in five minutes and be out the door and while still looking presentable to the world.

My beauty superstars! 
Let me introduce you to my five-minute-out-the-door face products. Sometimes, I don't always have time to do a full face in the mornings, so with time not on my side I need to be fast with my makeup application. If given the choice of sleeping in or getting up earlier to do my makeup, sleep will win every time! With the development of Le Metier De Beaute's Peau Vierge, I can use this one product to substitute two - my foundation and concealer (and fight wrinkles at the same time!). How's that for multi-tasking? I then tackle my dark circles. There isn't a mom I know that doesn't wish they had more sleep. The Peau Vierge will have already hid some of the darkness, but YSL's Touche Eclat will add radiance to those circles. With one swipe of my blush brush on Chanel's Bronze Rose and BAM I can add some color to my fair skin. I'll slick on Chanel's Petit Peche for a pretty pout, then it is onto the eyes...if there is one makeup item I won't leave my house without it is mascara. The mascara I rely on is Le Metier De Beaute's Anamorphic Mascara in 'Aubergine' (an eggplant color), it makes my lashes longer and fuller looking, but more importantly it doesn't clump (because there is something about running late and mascara smudging on us that goes hand-in-hand - like it has a sixth sense or something?!?).

So there you have it, folks. I'll have covered my flaws with Peau Vierge, camoflauged my dark cirlces with Touché Éclat, added a natural flush with the Chanel bronzer, applied a little gloss, and brought definition and attention to my eyes with some mascara. I told you it was simple.
