Running Late? Be out in 5

Being a very timely person, I usually leave just 30 minutes to get ready and leave out the door each morning after waking up. With such a straining time limit, my 5 minute makeup is usually simple, natural, but still tasteful. When you wake up late or need to do some touch ups, remember these quick and easy steps.  


MINUTE 1-2– The Base


The first step is to moisturize and apply sunscreen (during the summer). Since I do not like to use foundation, I prefer to use concealer to cover some imperfections and as an eye shadow primer.

MINUTE 3– Brows and Cheeks 


Filling in the brows with a brow pencil. To define my cheekbones, I use a light hand to apply bronzer. I do not use foundation so there is no need for blush since our cheeks are already rosy.

MINUTE 4– The Eyes 


I use creamy eye shadows or eye shadow sticks as a base (and for the inner corners of the eye and brow arch) because of their easy application. To create some dimension with the look, for my crease I use a bronzer and blend away.

MINUTE 5– Lashes and Lips 


Curl the lashes and apply mascara. Currently I have been using two mascaras by Maybelline. A review is available on the blog (link to this post). Apply lipstick/gloss and you’re ready to go.

Voila, a 5 minute look that is simplistic yet polished. Were hoping you will give it a try next time you feel a time strain. I try to change up my lipstick and eye shadow colours to always keep the look fresh.
