I am perpetually late. Regardless of how early I set my alarm, I am always forced to inconspicuously sneak into a lecture that started twenty minutes prior. It’s obnoxious and drives my friends crazy, but I have no sense of urgency when getting ready.
As part of my New Year’s resolution (how is it March already?!), I vowed to focus less on winged eyeliner and more on getting to university early enough to secure a car parking space. Subsequently, I have devised a go-to routine that requires only three eyeshadows, two makeup brushes and one minute of blending. Follow these simple steps for a bold look and some extra time in bed- what’s not to love?
- Firstly, apply a colour of your choice to the crease of the eye with a fluffy blending brush. I used ‘Love Letter’ from the Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Modern Renaissance Palette, a beautiful hot pink shade. Feel free to take this colour underneath the lower lash line for a super sultry look.
- Next, apply a similar colour to the lid using a flat synthetic brush. For this I used ‘Venetian Red’, a cherry toned shadow from the same palette.
- Then, use the blending brush to diffuse the two shades together. The similarity in the colour of the shadows means that this shouldn’t take too long!
- Finally, take any white eyeshadow on a fluffy brush and buff out the edges of the shadow. This will create an effortless blown-out effect in a matter of seconds!
Who said fabulous makeup had to take hours?
