I'm sure i'm not alone when i say that if there's a corner to skip when it comes to applying makeup or a way to look 'made up' with minimum effort required, then i am all over it. Sometimes, it's just not feasible to spend anything between 15-30 minutes putting on your face when you can take the lazy girl's way out and look almost as done up in a fraction of the time. For these days, i have a set line-up of products i tend to go to, to avoid the fuss of rummaging through the piles and piles of makeup in my stash - all in the name of saving effort of course..

For base i like to keep it light, with the L'Oreal Eau De Teint Foundation(£9.99/€14.99) taking the spotlight which is without a doubt my favourite of the lighter coverage bunch. A light-weight water based foundation which blends seamlessly, evens out the skin-tone and leaves a semi-matte finish. The Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer(£7.99/€9.99) is then called in for areas that need a lil' extra concealing such as around the nose and on any blemishes, and to brighten up the under-eye area. On the cheeks, i use the bare minimum and simply opt for a little cream blush in the form of the Bourjois Cream Blush in Shade 02(£7.99/€10.49), for a much more natural finish that will stay put all day. To promote longevity, i like to set it all in place with my beloved Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder(£3.99/€5.99).

Even on lazy days 'dem brows need a lil' TLC, however instead of using the alternative wax candidate, i opt for powder for a softer finish. This Fuschia Brow(£12.00/€15.50)* offering is called in, fitted with a wax and powder, it's got everything you need to add shape and definition to the brows. To keep their unruly tendencies at bay, the Maybelline Brow Drama((£4.99/€7.49) works it's magic.

Eyes call for a little definition thanks to some neutral shadow. With a pop of burgundy from my Fuschia  through the crease, softly blended out. Then a quick swipe and blend of the cult NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk(£5.50/€6.37) all over the lid. To finish - a lashing of L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara(£8.99/€13.49) to open and awaken the eyes more. Some days, i even go as far as popping on a little winged eyeliner to add more shape and give the appearance of fuller, thicker lashes.

For a look like this, it's no surprise i opted for one of my trusty Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 07(£8.99/€12.49). A gorgeous nude lip cream, this "your lips but pinker shade" has got you covered for hours on end before the need to top-up, adding less work to the lazy girl check-list.

Long lasting, non straying but staying makeup, this line up has got your face covered for all your lazy girl days..

Life is not always black and white. Sitting down stringing sentences together is something i haven't done a lot of in the past few...
