On-the-go beauty: Our top 5 products


5 easy-to-use products to help you look polished in a rush


With mornings getting colder and darker, our main priorities are catching those extra five minutes in bed or grabbing a coffee before work. Because of this, beauty routines can fall by the wayside. A mini makeup bag is essential, with just a few products that you can put on on your commute to work or in the bathroom. Here are our favourite products for a quick and natural makeup look on dreary mornings:

1. Benefit Gimme More Brow! (€26.50)


If you don’t have time to do your usual eyebrow routine, this is a perfect substitute. Just brush it through your brows to add thickness, shape, and a tint. This frames your face in seconds and instantly makes you look more put-together.

2. Garnier Organic Argan Multi Use Rescue Balm (€7.33)


This multi-use balm is perfect for dry skin in winter. Apply it to patches of dehydrated skin – whether it’s your hands, elbows, or face – to instantly soothe. The product is enriched with organic shea butter to ensure skin is kept healthy and moisturized.

3. Pestle & Mortar Balance Spritz (€15)


This pocket-sized spray is brilliant for if you’re feeling hot and flushed. Spritz on bare skin or over makeup to refresh tired skin. The product contains Deep Sea Irish Magnesium and glycerin to add hydration and make your skin glow.

4. Liz Earle Light Reflecting Concealer 


We love this Liz Earle concealer, which is in a pen container so you can easily cover up any imperfections. With a formula that isn’t too heavy, you can blend it on top of clean skin to give a natural, wide-awake look.

5. Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturising Lip Colour Balm


If you need to apply makeup in a rush, a lip tint is perfect and has less risk of smudging or creasing. These Clinique Chubby Sticks are moisturising enough to help combat winter dryness and add a beautiful tint in a quick swipe.
