Makeup on the Move

As I've mentioned recently, I have just moved house and everything is in boxes! Including the entire contents of my dressing table, so the only makeup I have to hand at the moment are a few absolute  essentials that I've been reaching for on a daily basis. 

As a base I've been using a mini sized version of Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation in 'I'm so glamber' Amber, not my favourite foundation by any means but it's compact, does a decent job of evening out the skin and has the added bonus of containing SPF25. 

To conceal under eye circles and hide blemishes I've been using Revlon Colourstay Concealer in 06 Deep, it's foolproof to apply, just dab on and blend with fingers. It hides a multitude of sins in just a few seconds.

Eyes start with a quick brush through and fill in of the brows with Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown. Followed by a curl of the lashes and a good few layers of Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara

If I have a bit of extra time on my hands or I'm doing something other than just painting the house I apply a bit of blusher and contour from the Sleek Contour Palette in Light in an attempt to look like I've made a bit more of an effort.

What products to you reach for when you're pushed for time?
