Get a gorgeous everyday look in minutes

There’s nothing worse than oversleeping and leaving yourself less than five minutes to slap on your day’s make-up and still look presentable.

So instead of feeling flustered and rushed (or forgoing your make-up altogether) when you’ve hit the snooze button one too many times, here’s a quick and super-easy everyday make-up look – courtesy of Rae Morris and her spectacular book Express Makeup – that will leave you looking fresh, natural, and beautifully radiant.

Step #1:

Apply foundation all over your face, except your eyelids. This produces a glossy eye effect.

beautyheaven recommends: Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup.The foundation melts right into your skin, giving your complexion a completely natural finish. It’ll also help give you the perfect amount of coverage for an everyday look.

Step #2:

Curl your lashes and apply loads of mascara to both the top and bottom lashes.

beautyheaven recommends:Revlon Cushion Grip Lash Curler and Revlon CustomEyes Mascara.

Step #3:

To set off this look, mattify your foundation using either powder or anti-shine primer.  Apply a cream blush to your cheeks.

beautyheaven recommends: Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Finishing Powder andRevlon PhotoReady Cream Blush.

Step #4:

Finish off with a soft peach cream lipstick.

beautyheaven recommends: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Creamsicle.
