Ready in 10 – A make up guide for busy Bee’s

Yes, you hit the snooze button one too many times and in between deciding on what to wear and having a quick coffee lets face it (pun intended) there is just not enough time in the morning to get that face of yours did!

Trust me this is me every morning and I kind of become a pro in scamming my face to look like it took hours but really I only used a handful of products each morning.

Disclaimer: I did not get paid to talk about any of these products, I just genuinely LOVE them.

Less coverage is more


Manukau Doctors CC Cream new Zealand

BB/CC Creams (can someone please tell me the difference?) and tinted moisturisers will save the day! I always go for a shade or two darker than my actual tone to look a bit sun-kissed and not washed out.
Warning : Only go a maximum of two shades darker and only with BB/CC creams and tinted moisturisers , never with full coverage Make up! Umpa lumpa is never gonna be in fashion so be careful!

I am currently loving the Living Nature Tinted Moisturiser ($55 NZD) or The Manukau Doctor CC Cream ($39.90 NZD).

Hide Yo Bags

This iconic pen has ben around for decades, and for a good reason it hides flaws and it’s light-infused pigments blend in seamlessly for a healthy, natural glow. It’s your skin but better! Never cakey or overdone. I use it for under my eyes and around my nose area.

YSl Eclait Highligter

YSL Touche Éclat – $50 NZD

Eye Opener

Inika Vegan long lash mascara

A good mascara will ALWAYS make you look awake in an instant, the one I am currently loving (for that quick daytime look) is the Inika Vegan Long Lash mascara ($55 NZD), extremely gentle (on those sleepy eyes). There is no clumping or fall out – just beautiful, panoramic lashes in a blink of an eye (ha, in top form with my dad jokes today).

Lips/Cheeks = Same shit

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Love

Ain’t nobody got time for a separate blush and lippy in the am. I use my lippy for that youthful glow on my cheeks too. Any light rose to nude colour will work here. I’m a huge fan of Estee Lauder Pure Colour Love (but as a regular you would already know that) . The ‘Crazy Beautiful’ colour is perfect to beat the rush and still look flawless in no time.


Serendipity Ave Lipsticks Nude Beauty Natural

Less is always more, look after your skin and you won’t need to use a lot of make up during the day. I’m a big believer in taking care of your skin first and putting make up second, that way you can sleep longer in the morning and put less harmful stuff onto your skin = win win!

Let us know if you enjoy this kind of thing and we will write more.
