Introduction to a 5 minute Makeup
So its TRANSFORMATION THURSDAY again and today is an introduction to YOUR 5 minute makeup
If you guys know me and have watched my 30 second smokey eye YouTube video then you’ll know that I like to do EVERYTHING well but some things I like to do well AND FAST! My Lucy Friend speed demon has been lying dormant since i was a baby… my family would definately agree with that! Doing my own makeup quickly has come about for a number of reasons – I started playing with makeup very early on so I was already training my hand, eye, face coordination (unknowingly) from a very early age! Then as I got older I didn’t stop!
I don’t think that since the age of 16 a day has gone past where I haven’t used at least one piece of makeup in any 24 hour period. Whether that’s lipgloss, eyeliner, blusher, moisturiser… I’ll use it at least once a day! That’s not because I was insecure or felt I needed it to do it to make myself feel better. I simply LOVED playing and experimenting with it all and I realised that taking the time to do it to myself became my sort of ritual. Aside from the benefits I was getting from making myself look as good as I could, I was taking 5 minutes every day to focus purely on myself and the benefit that I get from that is HUGE – I still feel it now when I do my makeup every day. Do you guys feel the same?So by default, the speed at which I was applying makeup on myself was increasing and increasing! then when I started doing it on friends, I got quicker on them too!
But where am I going with this, you might wonder? That’s what prompted me to start my makeup YouTube tutorials with My 30 SECOND SMOKEY EYE! It’s to prove to you that you don’t need hours to get a good makeup look done – which is great news as most of the time you don’t have hours to spare, right?! But as long as you have the right tools at your disposal you can achieve ANYTHING. A lot of it is in the organisation of it and that becomes second nature the more you practice!
Even if you don’t believe me right now, you gotta TRUST ME
That prompted me to write to you all today. There are 2 pictures below – a “before” and an “after” … The one on the LEFT is the “before” by the way…
That very natural makeup took me no longer than 5 minutes to do. 5 minutes?!?! Did you think it would have taken longer or shorter amount of time? Do you instantly think that there’s no way you could do a makeup in 5 minutes? If so then STEP ONE is changing the way you feel about it because it’s ENTIRELY possible. All you need is confidence and practice, and a makeup bag that you KNOW. By that i mean using products that you know how to use – ones that you know how they will go onto your skin
Now, if you’re all honest with yourselves, I think you can safely say that you could all make 5 minutes in the morning for yourself. Right? This is aimed at people who want to wear makeup by the way…It’s for those of you who want to wear it but are either too nervous to try different things or lack confidence and belief in your own abilities or you might just want to see another way to do what you already do by someone different! Whatever your reasons for reading this and wanting to get better / faster / more confident / whatever it is you are seeking … IT’S BRILLIANT that you are doing something about it
I’m here to show you that you can STOP thinking those negative thoughts and by watching what I do, and by having a few KEY makeup products in your makeup bag… You’re makeup routine life will transform!
Check back in over the weekend where I will reveal what I used and how I used it and I will give you plenty of tips on what you can be doing to make your life easier
