I’m delighted to share a Clarins makeup review with you today… it’s all about the new 5, 10 and 15 minute makeup routines.  We all want to look our best, but sometimes we just don’t have the time to do full glam. I love finding products that are simple, easy to use and just give you naturally stunning results – these well and truly delivered!

I will break it all down and show you the products I used to create three different looks. The first only took five minutes! It is perfect for running errands, relaxed weekends, or those days when you hit the snooze button a few too many times. The second further builds on this and in ten minutes you’ll have seriously smooth, glowing skin. Finally, in just 15 minutes you can create a totally glam look – from lips, to eyes, to skin that stays flawless all day.

To help you on your way to get instantly glam, I am giving one reader a full-size Instant Light Lip Perfector. Yay! You’ll love it, it’s so pretty. To enter, simply:

Clarins makeup review 5 10 15 minute makeup beauty blogger 5 MINUTES TO NATURAL:

Achieving a natural glam look in only five minutes has never been easier! Sometimes you don’t quite know what products to use or how to create a really quick and simple routine. Well gals, here is is. Everything you need for effortless beauty and a more radiant you in just four steps…

Step 1:  Apply the Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Light Reflecting Foundation to a clean face.  This has SPF 10, so it’s wonderful for everyday use. Warm the foundation between your hands and smooth over your face and neck using outward sweeping motions.

Step 2:  Sweep the Multi-Blush Cream Blush onto the apples of your cheeks.  I often smile in the mirror when doing my blush and it helps me find just the right spot (when you smile, it’s the fullest part of your cheeks). You can also use your fingertips to pat this onto your cheeks.

Step 3:  Enhance your eyes with a few coats of the Be Long Mascara. I personally always do two – three coats, I love a good lash!

Step 4:  Finally, coat your lips with the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector.  It adds the perfect shine and gives your lips a perfect pop.

10 MINUTES TO POLISHED:

Clarins makeup review 5 10 15 minute makeup Building on the products used in our five minute routine, you can enhance your glam even further!

Step 1:  Before you start your whole look, apply Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch.  This will give you an amazing base for the rest of the makeup.

Step 2:  Swap the foundation used above with this Extra-Firming Foundation. It contains SPF 15, so important for protecting your skin.

Step 3:  Use the Ombre Matte Eyeshadow Cream to Powder, it will add a beautiful dimension to your eyes and is long lasting. Apply this with your fingertip from your lash line to the crease, no brush needed!

Repeat the final steps from your 5 minute makeup routine…

Step 4:  Sweep the  Multi-Blush Cream Blush onto the apples of your cheeks.  I often smile in the mirror when doing my blush and it helps me find just the right spot (when you smile, it’s the fullest part of your cheeks).

Step 5:  Enhance your eyes with a few coats of the Be Long Mascara. I personally always do two – three coats, I love a good lash!

Step 6:  Finally, coat your lips with the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector.  It adds the perfect shine and gives your lips a perfect pop.

15 MINUTES TO FABULOUS:

Clarins makeup review 5 10 15 minute makeup Now for the ultimate glam in unbelievably minimal time. Create a full flawless makeup look in only 15 minutes! Follow steps from the 5 and 10 minute makeup routines, adding just a few extra elements…

Step 1:  Before you start your whole look, apply Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch.  This will give you an amazing base for the rest of the makeup.

Step 2:  Swap the foundation used previously with this Everlasting Foundation (it contains SPF 15).

Step 3:  Use the Ombre Matte Eyeshadow Cream to Powder, it will add a beautiful dimension to your eyes and is long lasting.

Step 4:  Sweep the Multi-Blush Cream Blush onto the apples of your cheeks.  I often smile in the mirror when doing my blush and it helps me find just the right spot (when you smile, it’s the fullest part of your cheeks).

Step 5:  Enhance your eyes with a few coats of the Be Long Mascara. I personally always do two – three coats, I love a good lash!

Step 6:  Apply the 3-Dot Liner. I always apply eye liner after my first coat of mascara, it makes it so much easier as your lashes are firmer and act as a guide to rest against. I then follow by adding a few more coats of mascara.

Step 7:  Any glam girls know, the pièce de résistance is lipstick! Apply the Rouge Eclat Lipstick Satin Finish, Age-Defying Lipstick. The color is so luxe and feels so silky… oh and the scent, I really don’t think I’ve smelt a more divine lipstick!
