30 Days Of Make-Up Day 24: Ten Minutes!

Y'know, usually, doing my make-up is my 'me' time. I like to take my time and that makes painting my face a relaxing and creative experience for me, something I'd gladly wake up a bit early for, just so that I have plenty of time to do it. 

Today was not one of those days. I'd had a bad night's sleep and a 12 hour shift at work to look forward to, I needed as much extra sleep as I could get! When I woke up I quickly washed, grabbed some breakfast and did my make-up as fast as I could. Which is -admittedly- not very fast at ten minutes, haha.

I kept the look super simple with a burgundy eyeliner and a highlight in the waterline and inner corners to make it look as if I were actually awake enough to function. A bit of concealer and a pink corrective primer (pink primer helps tremendously against dark circles!) on my face and a fresh blusher on the cheeks. The lips I kept bare with just a bit of lipbalm to keep them happy and soft.
