Everyday Five Minute Face


I'm an office girl, have been for the past few years after leaving the chaos that was my first job at TGI Friday's, I work at an Architects as a Secretary/Audio Typist and a PA when the boss is having a super busy week and needs me. Now when I say an Architects, don't picture this big glass building in the centre of town with all glass walls and glossy desks. No no, this is a somewhat smaller (WAYYYY smaller) little practice in ma hometown Sale. No glossy job means I don't require a made up face everyday, however I still need to look presentable for clients, so I make a little effort.

Here are the products I use to get my face ready for the day! I wash my face with the Soap and Glory Daily Youth Foamy Moisture Face Wash then begin to prep with the Pixi Glow Tonic followed by the L'oreal Extraordinary Rebalancing Facial Oil and a moisturiser some days but not most.

I then go in with the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, making triangle shapes under my eyes then applying to my T-zone and any blemishes. I blend this with my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge which I spray with my Pixi Make-up Fixing Mist before hand to make sure it all blends in nicely.

I then bronze my face up a bit using the Soleil Tan De Chanel and a Kabuki Brush applying to places where the sun would catch (cheek bones, temples, forehead and nose etc) then in the same areas I contour using the Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Ibiza which really makes them stand out, blending with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.

I then highlight using the Seventeen Instant Glow Shimmer Brick I usually always use the Benefit Watts Up stick but have recently bought the Shimmer Brick and I've been enjoying it! For brows I use the Soap and Glory Archery  brow pen blending with an eyebrow brush of course, I love this for natural day to day brows because of the felt tip like applicator. For eyes I go in with some eyelash curlers from Boots and Clinique High Impact Mascara (this is just a sample size) which I loooovee so far, it leaves my lashes thick and with lots of volume. Finally finishing off with Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub, how could I live without this!! I use it to take any make-up off my lips which I just hate, I then add a little tint with my Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm in Watermelon which adds a nice tint and shine. I seal the deal with a little spritz of my Pixi Make-up Fixing Mist and off I go!

What are your go to everyday products?

  4. i think adding highlighter or using a glowy base makes a simple and quick make up look perfect. i love the complexion rescue from bare minerals for that.

  8. Great roundup of products! I've been using the Glossier skin tint lately and paired it with the Tarte Exposed blush and Becca Moonstone highlighter. Finish off my eyes with the Kat Von D Trooper liner and the ABH Brow Pomade!

  11. Gorgeous products, Sheridan! I want Lush Lip Scrubs terribly just because I've not found a balm on lip exfoliator that's worked well on my lips before but we don't get Lush here, ah!

  12. I love the Soap & Glory Brow Archery, fantastic quality & the price is brilliant! I'm looking forward to trying the newer version with the spooly instead of the pen tip. I've tried a shimmer brick dupe before & didn't get on with it, but have heard so many good reviews of the Seventeen version that I definitely need to give it a swatch next time I'm near a stand. Xx

  21. Such a simple makeup look but giving you the coverage you need for work by the sounds of it! My office face uses a little less products because I am barely ever client facing, so I just use a bit of concealer, fill in my brows and off I trot!
