Long gone are the days when I can sit and take my time over getting ready each morning. Being a Mother makes this near enough impossible, and over the years since having Elodie I feel as though I have become a bit of an expert in the 'getting ready fast' game.
There are quite a lot of products in my makeup collection that I can really rely on for a quick and easy makeover, enough to get me from half asleep to presentable in minutes. 

For my base I can always guarantee quick and easy application with my bareMinerals Complexion Rescue. It blends so easily with a brush, sponge or just with the fingertips and gives a healthy, natural glow to the complexion.
I apply a small amount allover the face and build it up slightly to cover any redness or blemishes... It's a speedy makeover in a bottle! 

One of the two products I always wear even when I'm in the biggest rush is Benefit Gimmie Brow. By simply brushing this through my brows, they're given definition and shape, so really there is never an excuse for bad brows.
My favourite way to use this is to brush against the direction of the hair first, leave for a few minutes (usually while I apply my mascara and lippie) and then brush back in the correct direction. This makes my brows appear really fluffy and textured which is a look I just LOVE.

The other must have for me is mascara, I know when I have my brows and lashes done I look a million times more alive than I do without! I'm currently using the bareMinerals Lash Domination, which isn't too wet (don't you just hate when a mascara gets allover your face when you're rushing?!) and really separates and lengthens the lashes. 
This is my favourite daytime mascara by far... One or two coats and you're good to go.

For an every day lip I love Charlotte Tilbury's 'Very Victoria', which really is the most beautiful nude I have ever owned. It's a matte lipstick, but as with all CT lip products, it's really comfortable and hydrating on the lips. The colour lasts all day with little need for reapplication and looks really flattering with any makeup look.

Lastly I add a bit of colour to my cheeks. For my usual makeup I like to contour and highlight but when I'm being quick I love cream blushes. They apply and blend really easily with no need for any brushes or tools. I also find they double up really well for a wash of colour on the eyelids too.
My current favourite is the Youngblood shade 'Rose Quartz', it's so pretty for Summer and looks great on my pale skin. 
What are your go-to products for a day when you're rushing to get ready?
