6am - 6 Products in 6 minutes

6am means simple makeup and most of all as little products as possible as I simply do not have the time. I complete my simple skincare routine containing Clinique Cleansing Foam Wash and then apply my Antipodes Vanilla Pod Day Cream.

First up for my base I apply my L'Oreal True Match Foundation, using my new Real Techniques Sponge, which has been working really well. I really like this foundation and I like the medium coverage which it offers. I love the great shade range available in this collection. The inevitable Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, gets applied to my face most mornings. I need a high coverage concealer to help hide blemishes especially around my chin, and this works perfectly. Sometimes I will apply a powder and bronzer, but most mornings I opt just for Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Incandescent Electra (the middle shade). This blush is perfect and adds dimension and a light shimmer to my cheeks. It is great for my fair skin tone and adds some live and glow to my face. My favourite ever eyeshadow is MAC Woodwinked Eyeshadow. As much of a bold statement in which this is, there isn't an eyeshadow in which I own which I use as much as this. It is the perfect mid toned golden shade, adding just the right amount of shimmer to the eyelid. As you can see I have practically nothing left, so next time I am in Selfridge's a new one needs to be purchased. I literally apply one coat of the Maybelline Lash Sensation Mascara to my eyelashes. and they instantly make me look 10x more awake than I actually am. This mascara gives a really lovely curl and adds volume. The Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Wiz is the best eyebrow product which I have ever used. I love that this is a two in one product with the spoolie on one end and the product on the other. I quickly brush my brows through with the spoolie, and then apply the pencil in natural stokes along the natural shape of my brow. It works a dream and takes me less a minute to get them just how I want them. The shade range is brilliant I have the shade Taupe, and it is a great match to my natural hair colouring.

What are you essential morning products?
