5 Minute Makeup: Inspired by Tata Naka

Rimmel London Wonder'full Mascara with Argan Oil, Palmers Cocoa Butter Lip Balm, ROYAL Cosmetics Connection Eye Quad and Bronzer Set, Rimmel London 1000 Kisses Lip Liner in 'Cappuccino'.
Step 1: Prep- Cleanse, tone, moisturise, put foundation on and prime lashes.
Step 2: Add one (yes one) coat of mascara. The Wonder'full Mascara is made with Argan Oil, so as well as being kinder on the lashes- ensuring luscious, clump-free lashes, it also makes taking off eye makeup that much easier.
Step 3: Double check you've prepped. I forgot all about my cracked, foundation lips, and since the next step is eyeshadow, now is the opportune time to take care of anything that needs doing. Y'know, because your mascara needs to dry.
Step 4: Cover your upper lids only, in a rich red eyeshadow. I picked up this Eye Quad palette after running around for a good half hour trying to find a very pigmented gold. As it turned out, you can find them at Savers for just under £3, so it's good to get some palettes whenever one's in town. It's always great when guilty pleasures are a steal! And the colours are some of my favourites.
Step 5: Drag the brush outwards, and blend the eyeshadow towards your brow bone to create a cat eye effect.
Step 6: Carefully follow your lip line to line lips with a brown lip liner. I used Rimmel London's 1000 Kisses lip liner in 'Cappuccino', because as the name suggests, it is incredibly long lasting. If you're using the 1000 Kisses liner, then feel free to add another layer to really build up the colour.

P.S. I refuse to cover up the bags under my eyes no matter how many private messages you send me on Instagram telling me it'd look "so much prettier", they're hereditary and will stay for as long as I want them there.
