Glam in under 10 minutes
Some days, I wake up in the morning and everything goes smoothly; alarm goes off on time, child doesn’t wake me up in the night and the cat doesn’t attempt to sit on my face at 4:30am. I savor my coffee in a dignified manner, do a 10 minute meditation and apply my make up in peace, smug in my utter personification of efficiency. And then, there are the other mornings, where everything goes awry and I end up getting everyone ready in a hurry only to look at the mirror, sigh at my dark circles and the 1 minute left on the clock to make them disappear. The day is a blur of appointments and then I remember that post work event, the one I must rush to without going home. What’s a girl to do? Here are some of my tips of the trade as brought to you by the new Max Factor Miracle Collection
Start the day with The New Smooth Miracle Primer because this little helper provides a smooth and even application of foundation, sealing it for longer, lasting wear. Perfect for dry skin that gets even more dehydrated by make-up, this primer will care for your skin all day long. Follow this up with the New Miracle Touch Foundation for a seamless blending and shade matching that blurs imperfections and nourishes skin.
Next up, choose one of the 2 new Eyefinity Smokey Eye Pencils; the dual sided pencil features vibrant colours for intensity and deep metallic shade for highlighting. Bonus; the waterproof formula will stay on until you decide to take it off, not that accidental eye rub during the afternoon slump. I love how the dark shade frames the eyes, highlights and defines the brow bone and the inner corner of the eyes. For day I used the highlighting copper end as a liner, it gave me just the right amount of definition without being overly made up.
