Let’s be real; no working woman who must undertake any form of commute before the working day starts has an iota of spare time in the morning. The mad scramble for an outfit and a gallop to the train means we have zero minutes to spend beautifying our faces. We need products that are quick, easy-to-use and most importantly, get the job done. Here are five products to give you more time (to sleep) in the morning:
Aveeno After-Shower Mist, €9.99
I used to scrape body moisturising in the early hours, but at the moment, my body feels like a worn piece of wood, so I need all the help I can get. A healthy dollop of moisturiser is the answer, but because no one wants to do the zombie walk while it drys in, a spray is the only option. At long last Aveeno has added a spritz offering to their renowned range of moisturisers, so you can spray, and run.
Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray, €28
If your skin is on very the dry side, sometimes, a single layer of moisturiser just won’t cut it. If you’re feeling flustered and sardine-squished on the train, this refreshing, cooling mist is what to reach for. One spray and your dehydrated face will get an extra hit of moisture.
Clarins Skin Illusion Blush, €20
What I love about this new limited-edition release blush from Clinique is that you can literally buff-and-go. No mess, no fuss and (even better) no need for a blusher brush. It has a sheen when applied that makes you look dewy and naturally flushed. These blushes come in three shades and suit every skin tone.
Rosie For Autograph Cream Eyeshadow Stick, €17
Her whole range is gold, but I’ve got it bad for her cream eyeshadow sticks. The cream glides on without looking oily – a big plus. Twist, scribble and get outta dodge.
Clinique Crayola Chubby Stick, €19.50
Clinique has partnered with our childhood favourite Crayola to create eight new adorable chubby sticks from red hues to pink tints. These are so nifty; one swipe and the lips are coated with colour, leaving them smooth and gorgeous. Even when applied on a moving train, there won’t be a clown-mouth in sight.
