The Best Makeup Products for a Flawless Full Face

My usual morning routine goes a little something like this: I wake up, jump in a shower that’s set to a temperature only Satan would enjoy, piece together an outfit that looks catwalk-worthy in my mind, and then attempt to tackle my tired face with makeup.

I rummage through my makeup suitcase, delving past the half-used foundation bottles and smashed-to-smithereens powders, and grab the same nine or 10 products that I use every single day.

Once presentable, I head out with my entire makeup collection in tow (why, I’ll never know) and slay the day.

Although I manage to nail my beauty routine in a precise 38 minutes, I’ll do anything to shave off time and spend longer in bed – beauty sleep is a real thing.

So, on behalf of all the lazy-bods that still want to look flawless (and are fed up of carrying around an entire cosmetics store in their handbags), I’ve found five products that will give you a full face of makeup in record time.

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer


The first step is to lay down a perfect base, and there’s only one product for the job. This two-in-one foundation and concealer covers any imperfections, dark circles and blemishes, leaving you with a natural and comfortable finish. Boasting an oil-free formula, this is a foundation you can trust to last through sweaty and humid conditions.

We’re so here for the double duty products as A) they cut down on unnecessary packaging, and B) it’s satisfying having everything in one place. The Sculpted by Aimee Connolly Full Face Edit Radiance Palette goes one step further, offering a collection of multi-functional creams and powders. This gem gives you bronzer, blusher and highlighter so you can contour your face for a wide-awake look.

Benefit Gimme Brow+ Volumising Eyebrow Gel

Benefit Gimme Brow+ Volumising Eyebrow Gel

£18.71 £24.50 (24% off)

There’s no doubt that Benefit are the brow wizzes. Cult-favourite Gimme Brow is a tinted eyebrow gel that gives you brows that are full, thick and bursting with volume, all while staying natural. The easy-to-use brush deposits a long-lasting colour and keeps unruly hairs in place all day long.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara

Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara

£8.45 £12.83 (35% off)

Maybelline are always bringing out killer mascaras but the Lash Sensational Sky High mascara is the most recent to take the crown. The high-precision brush makes lashes 60% longer with just one stroke, and the formula is totally buildable, so you can switch between natural and dramatic as and when you fancy.

Stila Trifecta Metallica Eye, Lip & Cheek Stick - Pink Sapphire

Stila Trifecta Metallica Eye, Lip & Cheek Stick

£23.00 £23.45 (2% off)

The star of the show – literally. This award-winning multipurpose stick gives eyes, lips and cheeks a shimmery, sun-kissed look that is truly to die for. You can even glide it across your collarbones and shoulders for extra glow.

While it may seem like you can’t part with the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse that you’ve had since Year 8 (what if it comes in handy for future makeup mishaps?), the time for a real cosmetics clear out has arrived – you’ll thank us for this one.
