My Everyday Work Makeup Breakdown

My mornings are short as I enjoy my sleep.

I have 30 minutes in the morning...

3 minutes to figure out what I want to wear
5 minutes to waddle around, get dressed and complete some personal care duties.
15 minutes to apply makeup while I toast my bread
5 minutes to spread peanut butter on my toast and wrap it up in al foil.
2 minutes to put my socks and shoes on

Ideally, the less products the better. I've already started cutting corners and products, i.e., mascara is out of my routine.


Cover my blemishes and under eye with Shiseido Natural Finish Cream Concealer
and cover the rest of my face with Shiseido Hydro Liquid Foundation in I20.


Bobbi Brown Bronzer under the cheek bones and Stila Convertible colour in Lillium on the apples of my cheek.


 Manly 120 Eye Shadow Palette 
- Gold on the top lids
- Matte brown under the bottom lashline

- Prestige Black eyeliner 


- Sugarbaby lipstick 

 Wella Styling Gel  to keep my fly aways at bay and a dash of Marc Jacob's  Daisy  to keep me smelling fresh throughout the day.

What's your work makeup routine?


  1. Im so envious of your gorgeous black lashes! Mine are practically invisible without mascara and make me look like a weird alien haha

  2. I commend you on your morning routine. Myself applying makeup takes up 90% of whatever time I have and the rest is feed the cats, get dressed and brush my teeth lol.

  3. Your one is already more extensive than me! LOL. Mascara's been out of mine for a very long time. Same with eyeshadow.

    How are you finding the concealer? Does it crease under the eye much?

    1. I didn't find the concealer to crease at all, it only does around my nose if I have dry skin!

  4. I'll have to do a post about my daily face! It's probably about as quick as yours!

  5. wow... that is quick.. i wish i can do it as quickly

  6. Very pretty!

    My everyday makeup is actually also very similar. I like using just gold and a matte brown crease color and under my eyes.

    And my go to lipstick is Mac's Creme Cup.

  7. love that lipstick color! Also, need to look at Bobbi brown bronzers, I love the undertone of the one you used!

  8. The lip colour looks great on you! I don't work at the moment so I can leisurely apply whatever I like haha I cannot live without mascara though!!

  9. Lily, I started using my Stila Convertible Blush again because of this post!! Love your work makeup!

  11. That lippy looks really pretty! Good job for getting all of that done in 15 mins. I usually take 5-10 mins on an average day - foundation, blush, mascara and lipbalm. I'm pretty lazy haha!

  12. Your makeup looks wonderful! I think BB cream is also a very useful product for morning routines (^O^) I use it every day haha

  13. Nice blog. Follow for follow?

  14. That lip color is beautiful. I enjoy my sleep as well so when I do makeup it's all about good skin to keep it minimal - concealer, setting powder, curl eyelashes and maybe eyeliner or mascara. Maybe. Then a swipe of color or balm. I really should be less lazy about this. Sometimes I do cheek color to lift my complexion if I'm looking like a zombie.

  15. lily you eyelashes are so <3 <3! wish mine was also long like yours
    i salute your 30 min morning routine, it will take me 1 1/2 hour to accomplish all of that! :)
