This Easy 10-Minute Makeup Routine Always Earns Me the Most Compliments

If you know me, then you'll know that I'll do pretty much anything for an extra couple of minutes in bed. As much as I'd love to be that person that gets up at 6am, does a workout and washes her hair all before work, I've just never been an early riser, and I'm not sure I ever will be. Therefore, I've managed to create a quick and easy morning routine that works for me, and means that I don't have to get up at the crack of dawn.

One thing that I was determined to not spend hours on in the AM was my makeup routine. You see, even though I'm a junior beauty editor, I have always favoured a more pared-back, natural makeup look, so it seemed like a waste to be spending more time on it than needed.
