I admit that it’s hard for me to leave the house without any makeup on. However, there are days when I may sleep in a little longer, leaving limited time to apply my makeup. I’m sure you have experienced that scenario as well and I’m here to tell you that you can still leave the house looking refreshed and put together. I like to call this my 5-minute makeup routine.
Base: If you use foundation, you can cut down the amount of time by applying foundation only where you need it. This may include your chin, the sides of your nose, and around your eyes, all areas that can be prone to redness or dark shadows. Dab it on using your ring finger.
Cheeks: Blush is the quickest way to look luminous and glowing. Whether that is a powder, cream or gel, make sure you use a blush brush and apply to the apple of your cheeks (the roundest part when you smile), sweeping in an upward motion towards your hairline.
Lashes: If there is only one product to apply on the eyes, I would recommend black mascara. Mascara really opens up your eyes and makes them “pop”. Sweep on one coat from root to tip. Another tip, make sure you don’t pump the wand as doing so lets air into the tube, which can cause bacterial growth.
Lips: Don’t forget to finish your look with a sheer lipstick or gloss on the lips. Lipstick is the last step to pull together an entire beauty look. A sheer lipstick or gloss is quicker to apply than a bolder color of lipstick and lip liner.
That's all there is to it! This strategy is quick and simple and leaves you looking ready to start your day.
