I've got a confession - I've gotten into the very bad habit of laying in bed until the last possible minute, throwing some makeup in a bag, and just doing my makeup at my desk when I first get in to work. I've been keeping these products in my work bag for the last week or so now for just these occasions. It literally takes me about two minutes, so I've still got time to drink my coffee and get to work.
I start with a cushion foundation - they're super easy to carry around and you don't have to use your hands at all. I've been using the AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact for this, but I love the CLE Cosmetics Essence Air Cushion (review) as well. It subtly evens out the skin and perks it up a little. If I'm in a rush, I'll skip blush and bronzer, but I can never go without highlight. A quick swipe of the Glossier Haloscope adds the perfect amount of dewiness to the skin to give a healthy glow.
Next, I comb through my brows with the Glossier Boy Brow (I forgot to include it in the picture! I'm 99% sure it was stuck inside the bag). I love how it makes them look slightly fuller and keeps any unruly hairs in place. When I have more time and am doing my makeup at home, I follow up this step with an eyebrow pencil, but when I'm in a rush, just the Boy Brow will do.
I quickly tightline my upper lashline with the Colourpop Creme Gel Liner in Brew-Haha, and it makes all the difference in making me look more awake. I also smudge a bit of the liner on the outer corners of my eyes for some definition. After curling my eyelashes with the Tweezerman ProCurl, I apply a coat of the Max Factor Masterpiece Max Mascara - I was sent this over the summer, and it's risen to holy grail status. It's not even waterproof and it doesn't smudge on me all day.
I usually just reapply my Glossier Balm Dotcom over and over throughout the day, but if I'm feeling a little fancier I'll use their new Lip Gloss. It's just clear, and it feels super nourishing on the lips.
