What does your 10 minute look consist of?

My answer: sunscreen, foundation, concealer, a wash of cream eyeshadow, mascara, a touch of blush and a moisturizing lipgloss/lipstick.

Let’s see….

Tinted BB cream all over my face, a little bit of foundation around my eyes/nose, eye shadow in any configuration (because I’m fast at that no matter what colors I choose), eyeliner, mascara. That’s it.

Trisha, that’s a nice simple look. And I envy you for being quick at doing your eyeshadow!

My eyebrows alone take me 10 minutes. But I’m an eyebrow freak, I admit 🙂

Regn, wow, that’s a long time. I bet your eyebrows look gorgeous though! I tend to neglect mine and, sometimes, it shows.

I love your 10 minute look, it’s fresh and simple. My 10 minute look consists: a lightweight foundation , a little bit of transparent pressed powder only on the T zone, a touch of blush, eye gel primer, I curl my lashes (and if I can I also add a bit of mascara in navy blue or in black), moisturising lip gloss with a hint of color or a very natural shade of moisturising lipstick, transparent mascara for the eyebrows.

Lidia, thanks. Your looks sounds lovely too. I love the idea of using a navy blue mascara. It’s a nice touch.

Lotion, eyebrow color, BB or CC cream, concealer, mascara, cream blush, and lip color. 🙂

Meg, best to stick to the essentials when we’re pressed for time, isn’t it?
