Rushing around from my work to events, juggling my time spent between Instagram and my blog, staying up late to check my emails and getting up early to workout – most weeks are insanely busy for me. Some days I barely have time to set foot in my flat and I’m already racing to my next job. It probably seems oh-so glam and fun (and to be honest it definitely is) but it’s also a complete nightmare for my skin and makeup.
I love it, I wouldn’t change it for the world – but I don’t want it to show in my face. While it’s wonderful when I have the time and means to indulge in major beauty treatments, it’s perhaps even sweeter when I know that I can rely on these go-to products to keep me feeling and looking fresh. In need of a quick-fix cover-up? Let me introduce you to the best beauty products that get me through a busy week.
KVD X Too Faced Better Together Set
I have ZERO time to retouch my makeup when I’m on the go and the toughest bit for me is always migrating mascara and eyeliner. I was sent the KVD X Too Faced Better Together set and I’m completely hooked on these two – Kat Von D Tattoo Liquid Liner and Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. The liner does not budge and the mascara delivers the lushest lashes I have EVER experienced.
When I’m in a rush, the last thing I’m spending too much time on is contouring and highlighting. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder is chocolate-scented and shimmer-free, perfect for contouring and creating an all-over deep tan using real antioxidant-rich cocoa powder. I finish by sweeping Toofaced’s Candlelight Glow Powder on the tops of my cheekbones, tip of my nose and chin – And I’m good to go!
MAC Tricolour Gloss
MAC STROBE CREAM
I rarely leave my house these days without sweeping MAC’s Tricolour lipgloss accross my lips. It’s a midtone pinky beige with fine gold reflects – the perfect shade to combine with any nude/beige lip looks.
MAC Strobe Cream in Goldlite is the most hydrating and refreshing primer I’ve ever used – it pumps out dryness and adds radiance, especially to luminise my cheekbones and under eyes. A stressful, busy week wreaks havoc on my skin – this does the trick to give it a boost!
VICHY MASQUE PEEL DOUBLE ECLAT
I can’t rave about this enough – it prevents my skin from literally falling off – it’s a mask, I slather it on and leave for 15 minutes. I SWEAR you will have the smoothest, glowiest skin of your life using this double peel mask – perfect for dehydrated, lifeless, dull, dry, stressed, tired faces!
This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray
This is my kryptonite. I spray it on my pillow every night to guarantee the perfect night sleep– smells like heaven and never ever leaves my bedside. It’s an incredibly easy way to really indulge yourself without a lot of time or money.
