How to do your makeup in 2 minutes or less

26 January 2016, 08:48Marisa Crous

Scenario: you are up all night tossing and turning, worried about your ridiculous lack of self-discipline (“why did I not go to gym?!”) or maybe you are just overworked and underpaid, growing increasingly disgruntled with your one colleague who insists on telling you about her luxurious yachting weekends away when all you can afford lately in terms of relaxation is a walk by the beach.

So, you get up and feel/look a bit rough. You gulp down some coffee, inhale some brekkie, simultaneously dreading your lack of wardrobe choices for the day (all black again?) and the last thing you feel like doing is the whole primer, foundation, concealer, mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, contouring shebang.

Then don't.

Simply do this: the 2-minute makeup look that is fresh, and yes, good enough for today.

You will need:

•    A lightweight foundation

•    A highlighter

•    A killer mascara

•    Eyebrow comb 

•    A lip tint or gloss

So now we're just wondering... Was that even 2 minutes?
