20 Minute Makeup

Hey guys, here's a little something that's simple and glamorous yet only takes a few minutes to apply. Each eye roughly took me about 10 minutes (if that) to complete, and it's so easy that anybody could do it. All you really need is a good blending brush and you're away!

I stuck with just one palette to make it even more convenient for those times when we're in a hurry (which I almost always am!). My big Motives palette had all the colours I had planned in my head within it, but obviously you could use whatever colours or palette you'd like.

All it takes is one shadow all over the lid, a little something to deepen the crease and a lower lash line colour. Along with optional eyeliner and mascara as normal. That's it! Effortless AND pretty, what else do you need?!

  • Motives by Loren Ridinger Eye Base 
  • Motives by Loren Ridinger 'Toast' eyeshadow all over lid and blended up into crease
  • Motives by Loren Ridinger 'Chocolight' slightly blended into crease 
  • Motives by Loren Ridinger 'Vanilla' eyeshadow to highlight brow bone 
  • Motives by Loren Ridinger 'Pacific Sea' eyeshadow along lower lash line 
  • Inglot AMC Gel Liner in #77 to line upper and lower waterlines
  • Eyeko Eye Do Skinny Liquid Eyeliner by Alexa Chung to line eyes
  • Eyeko Eye Do Mascara by Alexa Chung 
  • Eldora #H125 false lashes

  • Urban Decay Brow Box in 'Gingersnap'
  • Eyeko Brow Gel
