We all get days like this. You’ve overslept and got few minutes to catch a bus/train/get in your car. Your beauty routine doesn’t have to be compromised. Inspired by recent events 20 minutes head to toe routine includes a shower, taking care of my pearly whites (and that morning breath!), little hair, little makeup and even a body moisturiser. Magic? Definitely with these few tips & incredible cult beauty finds! 

7:00am-7:05am - in the shower

I don’t know about you but I’ve been late plenty of times. Be that my never-ending love of snooze button or I forgot to charge my phone fiasco, it has taught me a value of time. I can now shower and brush my teeth in under 5 minutes! In the shower, I usually go for something that smells of fruits and energises my overslept body and brain! The Body Shop Shower Gel is always a yes from me and Fuji Green Tea scent, in particular, gets my body racing! I also quickly wash my face and in-shower I love to use a foam such as Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser* which cleanses quickly and delicately! I then quickly apply in-shower body moisturiser from Lush & I’m good to go in less than 3 minutes! Time for my pearly whites and my love of green tea doesn’t help here! I’ve been using Janina Ultra White 24k Gold Toothpaste** religiously every day for almost a month and I’m happy to report, my teeth are at least two tones whiter without compromising their sensitivity! On a busy morning it’s where I end but if I have more than a couple of minutes, I’ll start with Janina Charcoal & Clay Teeth Whitening Powder** which is a non-invasive and natural whitener! I’ve heard of Janina before and I’m glad to have been able to test it, as it’s really quality tooth whitening brand! I already got some of my best friends to try it and their reviews are glowing. I think you should try this brand when you're in Boots next!

7:05am-7:07am - messy hair don’t care

On a super fast morning, all I need is my Batiste Heavenly Volume Dry Shampoo & a bit of Ouai Texturizing Spray*** to get my bed hair to look like supermodel's hair! I love to add a little volume and create some texture and both work great together to keep my hair looking its best all day long. All in all 2 minutes and that includes brushing aka little me time with Wet Brush*! 

7:07am-7:10am - skincare super heroes

A quick swipe of Merumaya Treatment Toner*** adds glow and couple of spritzes of Omorovicza Magic Moisture Mist hydrate my tired looking skin! I then apply a Caudalie VineActiv 3in1 Moisturiser* which works wonders when I’m in a rush. It’s a hybrid of serum, moisturiser and mask and leaves my dry skin well-taken care off for the whole day! I apply it to my face including under eyes as I’m in a rush, neck and décolletage. The whole process usually lasts about two minutes and I allow an additional minute for it all to quickly sink in before moving on to makeup! 

7:10am-7:20am - make me up

I start with a pea size amount Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation in Swan, a perfect light base with a nice medium coverage that requires very little buffing into the skin. A little Tarte Shape Tape Concealer in Fair under eyes and on more difficult areas is all extra coverage I need. On busy days I keep my base cream formulas mainly and I’ll use Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand in Light/Medium to contour and bronze, little Rosie for Autograph Cream Blush in English Rose Flush* to add a little colour and Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter in Fair*** on the top points of my face to highlight. I usually set it all with a little Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Replenishing Primer & Setting Spray to ensure longevity. On good skin day, I can have it done in 3-4 minutes. 

I then move on to my brows and I quickly fill them in with Inglot Brow Liner Gel in 12 to add more volume and definition. I’m no longer into Insta brows and prefer softer and more natural finish. I go for super quick eyes and lately I’m all about those glossy but lasting lids, so I end up using one of my Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows*** and lightly blend it out with a fluffy brush in the crease. Few coats of Benefit BADgal Bang Mascara complete my ultra modern eye look while a coat of orange-red lipstick like Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips in Tell Laura adds a modern chic to the city girl glam! 

And there you have it, my bed to door in 20 minutes routine doesn’t compromise on glam, instead uses great formulas that never disappoint! What's your ‘I snoozed 10 times’ morning routine look like?
