Make Up For The School Run - Just 2 minutes!

My little boy has recently started nursery school, whereas before we could pretty much be anywhere at anytime we are now battling against the dreaded clock..

I like to take my time applying my makeup, nothing excessive like Joan Collins (a rumoured three hours) but around 10- 15 minutes usually and more if required.

I have quickly learnt that in order to get myself and him ready in the morning the one thing that I don't have much of is time. Most of my morning is battling with him to eat his breakfast and chasing him around the house to get ready!

I like to wear makeup and am not the kind of person that will pop to the shops without my makeup.

So I have perfected the it takes less than 2 minutes ready for the day look.. I know it takes this as I timed it!

Two minutes, four products.

Base - Liz Earle Skin Tint in shade Beige 02 
Blusher - Flawless You Forever Cheeky in Country Fresh - I love how natural this is.
Mascara - Max Factor Xperience Volumising Mascara in brown/black - My go to everyday mascara
Lipstick - Revlon Colourburst Lipstick in Raspberry 045 - An instant pop of colour is a guaranteed face brightener, I LOVE this shade.

Here you go - a picture of me on the school run


  1. I've had to go from 30 mins to about 10. I'm really struggling to get it less than that!

    I must admit I would prefer to wear more makeup if I had time but this is ideal when I just don't have the time!

  6. 2 minutes? Incredible! You look really lovely too. The Liz Earle skin base is so natural-looking.

  7. Try it with 4! I get us all ready, full makeup (i look like death warmed up without the full monty!) In just over an hour!
