Five products + five finger tips + five minutes = One 'I just rolled out of bed but my lashes/brows/skin look fab, hey I'm just blessed' face.

First up, the Stila Stay All Day 10-In-One HD Illuminating Beauty Balm.. There's a whole host of scientific mumbo jumbo behind this product but I'll skip that and just say that it's pretty much the best BB cream I've ever tried. It's high enough coverage that I'm comfortable to skip foundation, it's glowy, fresh and smoothes everything out. Plus it's SPF 30. PLUS it's a staple in Victoria Beckham's makeup stash.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz is my current go-to for brow maintenance. A super thin waxy pencil with a handy spool that makes it easy to fake definition and draw in extra hairs. I've had this for easily over 6 months and it's still going strong. Take that, crappy Rimmel eyebrow pencil. 

For mascara, I'm currently having a love affair with Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Babydoll. If the packaging doesn't make you squeal, your super long, fluttery lashes will. 

Mixing up my high end theme with a drugstore drop - Rimmel's Wake Me Up Concealer. High coverage and illuminating without looking cakey. I daub it on any blemishes and in a triangle under my eyes to tackle my dark circles. A job well done for less than £6. 

The eyelash curlers are Shu Umera which I bought purely down to their cameo in The Devil Wears Prada. I've since discovered they're pretty much the Beyonce of the lash curler world and I will now never go a day without them. You can pick them up for just under £12 (that's £18 less than RRP!) here.
