Monday’s definitely seem to roll around a lot quicker then any other day of the week don’t you think? If like me, you struggle with Mondayitis (or any kind of weekdayitis) I have 2 products (plus a tool) that will take you from drab to fab in less than 3 minutes.
Funnily enough, on those mornings I struggle to get out of bed I usually focus on making up my eyes as they’re a dead giveaway that I’ve gone to bed way too late. My weapons of choice; a cream shadow stick (Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Amethyst – soft mauve with pearl which sets off my brown/hazel eyes), mascara of choice (Dior Iconic) and eyelash curler (mine is a Shu Uemura). I simply slap on some cream eyeshadow (any cream shadow will do), blending along my eyelid and extending down to the bottom lashes to add a bit of extra oomph. I then curl my lashes and apply a single coat of mascara to the top and bottom lashes – and what do you know, something that resembles a decent attempt in under 2 minutes.
Of course if you’d like to add a base and concealer go for it – remember to subtract about a minute from your sleep. Typically when I’m in a rush I prefer my Dior BB cream as it’s quick and easy to apply and doesn’t involve much forethought as does my Bobbi Brown Creamy Corrector. I’ll also slap on a balm which I always carry in my bag but aside from all of that, that’s it. It’s not much but it’s enough to get me by.
