The Makeup Timer Test Tag

by - August 27, 2014

 I first saw this tag on Lily Pebbles blog and thought it was such a good idea. The concept is very simple - just grab your stopwatch to record each section of your makeup, write down the time then reset the timer for the next item. You don't have to feel rushed but just exactly how you would normally do your makeup. I was very surprised at my time of five minutes and forty-four seconds which is a lot faster than I would of expected! Here's what I used...

Eyes: Sleek Au Naturel Palette // Rimmel London Wonder'ful Mascara // Soap & Glory Smoulder Khol in 'Cocoa Bean'

Concealer: Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer

Primer/Foundation: Natural Collection Pressed Powder (Mine had broken into thousands of pieces!)

Blusher/Bronzer: Sleek Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette // 17 Cheek Stamp Blush in 'Stare-Struck'

Brows: Sleek Au Naturel Palette using the shade 'Bark'

Lips: Most days I tend not to wear anything on my lips...

I did find it quite hard to not rush and try to beat the clock but apart from that I think I did quite well. As this was my everyday makeup I didn't have any crazy eyeshadow or eyeliner to complete! If you want to take part in this Tag then follow the instructions above and just have fun!

Are you going to give this tag a go?

Are you impressed with my time like I am?!
