The Three Minute Make-Up Challenge with Fragrance Direct.

When the lovely people at Fragrance Direct asked me if I'd like to take part in the 'three-minute make up challenge' I jumped at the chance to see if I could actually do it. Fragrance Direct kindly sent me a few products to help me out with the challenge, so I set my stopwatch and got applying.

I started with a super quick base using the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation* in Ivory and blended it super quickly with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. The base certainly took me the longest to do and I dedicated half of my three minutes to get an even finish. I didn't bother with a setting powder and just slapped on my Tom Ford blush in Love Lust and blended it out quickly with my Eco Tools Powder Brush.

Next I moved onto my eyes and quickly popped on a few coats of the Maybelline The Rocket Volume Express Mascara* in Black. I then got a little carried away filling in my brows, which are certainly darker and messier than I would usually go for, but with seconds left I had to apply a lip product.

I managed to finish my face of with one second to spare. I swiftly applied the L'Oreal Glam Shine Lip Gloss* in Aqua Lychee and stopped the clock. Considering I managed to do my full face in three minutes, I was pretty pleased with the outcome. I think in future I would be able to my whole face properly in around five minutes, giving me some extra time in bed.

Thank you Fragrance Direct for letting me take part.
