My Five Product Face: Drugstore Edit

We've all be there: alarm goes, we snooze it for five minutes, next thing you know you've slept in half an hour leaving you with roughly 5 minutes to get ready and out the door. This is what I'll be reaching for next time that happens (probably tomorrow morning, let's be honest!) and why I'm choosing to grab those products ...
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation is my current go-to foundation that is a dupe for my beloved NARS Sheer Glow. Dewy, medium coverage but effortlessly buildable, it's so easy for days like today. Usually if I'm rushing out the door, I skip on concealer and apply a little extra product where I need it, tapping it in with my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge for an airbrushed-esque finish. I usually miss out powder if I'm in a rush and embrace a more dewy look, as my skin doesn't ever get that oily except in my t-zone.

How To Get Instagram-Worthy Brows For a Fiver

Whenever I look back at pictures of my teenage self, it's not my dubious fashion sense or dodgy haircuts that I cringe at most. It's my eyebrows. At around 16 I had discovered makeup, and piled on the foundation and blusher with not even a single glance at the two hairy lines above my eyes. Even my boyfriend noticed when I pulled out a picture the other day. Embarrassment central. Fast forward to present day, and even if I've got 30 seconds to put makeup on, brows goes on first. It's probably my one rule of makeup. If you're in a rush, the best thing you can do is put your brows on, because it's probably the most noticeable aspect!
