Snooze Button vs Makeup

So yesterday I went out with Laura and Simone. We had a very fun dinner at The Ivy which included a beautiful Pinot Noir amongst other delicious things. 

Needless to say this morning I felt a bit more groggy than on any other given Thursday.
I took a decision to maximize the use of snooze button so everything else had to take minimum time but end up looking like I was a healthy and functioning human being. 

Hair went into the "Laura roll" in 3min.
Make up wise I only used 6 old and trusted products and I think it came together rather nice. Aim of this was to look healthy and awake.

So while waiting for taxi I snapped this photo in order to demonstrate my minimal time-maximum impact makeup look for you.

Using my Real Techniques Buffing Brush I applied a thin layer of Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream. I have so much love for that product. Its the only CC cream I have every tried and it has such nice coverage and great glowy finish. Perfect product for not looking over done but brightening up the face when your skin looks dull. Moving on to blush I didn't even think twice and reached for the NARS Deep Throat. I had no interest in blending or any other form of eyeshadow action but I did quickly line my eyes with the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. I have bought another MUFE Smoky Lash mascara this time in waterproof and its true love all over again. If you have never tried this you are missing out. I liberally dusted my Kevin Aucoin Candlelight highlighter everywhere- cheekbones, inner corner of the eye, brow bones, down my nose. I really mean everywhere. Got no glow from within? Fake it til you make it! Lastly Mac Peach Blossom on my lips and out the door I went.

What product would you never skip when trying to do makeup quick but at the same time cover up the cocktails from last night?
