I can’t tell you how many times I’ve needed to do my makeup in under five minutes. Whether I’ve overslept, had to go somewhere last minute, realized the zoom was – camera on -, am sitting outside of my ex-bf’s house (yes confession I know we’ve all been there ok), really just don’t have the energy to get ready, or need to do SOMETHING with my face post workout and before a lunch, I have def been there.
Sooo I wanted to share with you guys my real five mins *or less* beauty routine for when I don’t have the hour I would love to have to glam.
First thing is first, always carry a beauty blender in your makeup bag. (Make sure you keep it in a ziplock or something so that it doesn’t touch anything else!!! No breakouts pls). When I am doing my makeup quickly, I usually don’t reach for a foundation, but a CC cream. I typically only wear very full coverage foundations, and if I don’t have the time to bake, conceal, highlight, contour, blah blah all the things, then I def don’t want just the base foundation because it will just look like one color all over and it will be basically an episode of James Charles floating face #nothankyou. I love a CC cream because the CC stands for color corrector. So basically, it will cancel out reds, brighten in spots it needs to, etc. So I will do a thin layer of a CC cream to start! I have always loved the IT! Cosmetics CC Cream and I am the shade Light – I think I’ve been using this product seriously for nine or ten years you guys.
Next, fill in your brows. This is a step I will never ever skip and I think if anything, doing your brows will bring your face together more than doing just a lip or just an eye look or etc. I really love the ABH Dipbrow Pomade in Blonde!
I have lash extensions and these def help when I’m in a pinch, but if you rock natural lashes, I always love putting some mascara on really quick just to pull the look together a little more! I have currently been OBSESSED with the Lawless The One & Done Mascara. The wand on this is so unique and the packaging is gorgeous! The mascara formula dries uber fast and is so so easy to take off at the end of the day which I personally love!
Finally, slap on a clear gloss or a shiny balm and that is literally IT. I usually put on the Lawless Forget the Filler Lip Plumping Gloss in the shade Rosy Outlook, and I have also been really into the Gucci All Over Face and Lip Gloss as well! Four products, five minutes, you’re good to go.
I hope this helps for those times you’re like omg I have no time – there is always at least a little bit of time for makeup 😉
