What I'm loving right now!

I have a spare minute and an Internet connection as I'm at my mother-in-laws, Yay! The decoration is coming along slowly but surely. The past few days I have been living out of a tiny makeup bag and I have been LOVING my 2 minute routine.

Here's what I love right now..


  • Chanel bronze universel (Soleil tan de chanel) I love this cream bronzer, it looks so natural and is very quick to apply with a Mac or Sigma 168.
  • Mac brave new bronze lipstick A lovely wearable nude perfect for my skin tone.
  • Revlon pink pop lipgloss Brightens up my face, need I say more?
  • YSL touche eclat concealer I love this under my eyes, it makes me look less tired than I am.
  • Rimmel dark brown eyebrow pencil This does the job fast with a natural effect, I quickly fill in my brows very lightly.
  • Mac eyelash curlers Works well and I have never had a problem with it, I have been using it for over a year.

My typical 2 minute routine goes like this:

  1. Apply Bourjois 10hr sleep effect foundation
  2. Apply YSL touche eclat concealer under the eyes
  3. Curl lashes, apply mascara.
  4. Apply bronze universel de chanel
  5. Lipstick or lipgloss

That's it, no fuss, easy, simple but elegant. Or as they say in Turkish: Az ve Öz!

What's your 2 minute routine?

Az ve Öz is the way to go! :) It's so cute that you're throwing in some Turkish words he he My two minute routine includes: fill in eyebrows, Naked Lunch or Satin Taupe all over lid, L'oreal Voluminous mascara, eyeliner, foundation, MSFN, blush and lipstick/gloss. That's it! :)

two minute routines are awesome! but i can never stick to one. now that my skin is misbehaving, my routine is more like 10 minutes.

I wish I had a 2 minute routine. I try, but it takes more lke 10-20. I think my foundation takes the longest.

Muhsine if you like YSL touche eclat concealer you MUST try Lacura Concealer Pen (£3.49) from Aldi. Its a dupe of touche eclat and its great :) Actually I should do a review on it some time soon :D

This is meant to be a quick two minute routine. It inevitably takes me about ten!
Tringle of erase paste under eyes and all over lid. Modellette or All That Glitters all over lid
Max Factor Lash extension mascara to routes of lashes and out.
Photo ready blended where needed
Blushbaby just above and to side of apples of cheeks
Hue or Angel or Ambre Rose to lips.
The lip decision probably takes longer then the rest of the application!!

Lizzard said...

i gotta tell ya girl, my two minute routine isn't to minutes at all. if i'm trying to looking simple and elegent i need that cream/liquid eyeliner on the top lids xo

Lorraine said...

You can do that in two minutes?! :)

My two minute routine is
-Maybelline powder
-Yves Rocher lipbalm
-Rimmel Color Quad (I use the darkest charcoal color and smudge a thin line on my upper eyelid to make my eyes stand out subtly)
-Two quick coats of mascara
-Swipe of powder blush (If I'm really in a rush, I omit this step.)
-If it's my two minute routine...I usually choose a sheer lipstick, like the Revlon Naturals one. Smells SO good!


Lately, every day has been my two minute routine :)

I think I spend too much time on my eyebrows. two minutes just for them alone! But they're also the most important

ArtDonatella said...

My 'quickie' routine: Estee Lauder Foundation, bit of blush + Hoola bronzer = Love, L'Oreal Voluminous, and YSL Lip Plumper...oh, and concelear..Phew, almost forgot the most important (not quite a quickie rputine ain't it?)

Glam and Glitter said...

Im sort of experiencing problems with chanel bronzer...its as it blotches after some time and kinda peels...not sure if i dont use it properly, but i ve worn it only once, and preferred my mac one... How do you apply it??
xxxxxx love Tamara

tina_mbc said...

2 minute routine??? No way, not for me!!!
Lol! :DDD

But, my 7-10 minute routine includes:

-Concealer
-Face Powder
-Bronzer
-Blush
-Eyeshadow primer, followed by one wash colour and one for the crease
-Eyeliner of some sort
-Mascara
-Lip product on the go (quite possibly applied in the elevator)!

And I think that's the quickest I can do!!!! :/

some powder concealer (i have giant circles under my eyes haha)
