I was recently asked to make a new “five minute makeup” video now that I have grey hair, so here it is!
Now the video is more than 5 minutes long (cos I was chit-chatting with you) but I wanted to let you know that I did actually time how long it takes me to apply my makeup, on my average morning and I discovered that it takes me only 4 minutes. That’s because I do the same thing all the time so I’m not having to think about it and because I’ve practiced it every day now for years!

Makeup doesn’t have to take a lot of time, but it can have a big impact on how you look.
All the products I used are available here if you’re interested. I’ve categorised all my makeup into Warm and Cool – so that you can easily choose makeup that will flatter you if you know your undertone.
Makeup Colours I Used
Foundation: Creme Beige
Mineral Powder: Medium Light
Blush: Mauve Rose
Eyeshadow: Pink Glow, Cashmere Matte, Steel Blue Ice (as eyeliner), Silver
Eyebrow pencil: Pewter
Lipliner: Cherry Wine
Lipstick: Ultimately Lavender
In the video I chat about a foundation brush that’s like this one here.

That is a wonderful video and a tremendous help to me as it will be to many. Such a big effect in so little time. Once out of bed, putting on makeup is part of my day even if no one else sees me. I see me so it is worth not scaring myself to death.
My makeup stash needs to be pared down and the ‘oldies’ pitched. I would be ashamed to confess how old many items are. I will do that very soon.
You are looking beautiful. I appreciate your generosity in sharing so much helpful information. I send many woman your way for many reasons. Your explanation of body types is not something Ecuadorian women know about so we look together and then I do my best to explain more of the details in Spanish.
Take care and best wishes.
Thanks so much Elaine! It’s great that it’s helping you an others there – sadly my Spanish is negligible so I have no ability to translate. WIth makeup, always smell it, if it smells anything but fresh or has a smell rather than no smell that’s a good sign to let it go.
