My Five-Minute Face

by - Saturday, September 29, 2018

You know those days when you only have five minutes to slap together some semblance of a makeup look? Here are my favorite products for that.

Some form of one-wash shadow
Usually, when I have five minutes to get ready, I usually grab a one-wash shadow. I prefer powder shadows because they're just faster to apply.
Favorites: Essence Eyeshadow (all ranges), Milani Bella Eyes

I can never leave the house without eyeliner, but this isn't a big deal as it only takes me about a minute to do.

This can be easily done in 10 seconds.

Usually, I just swipe a bit of brow pomade through them. This step takes about 15-20 seconds.

Powder foundation
Powder foundation is the foundation best suited to my skin type (oily), and it also adds coverage and serves as a loose powder and a foundation in one. This literally takes me about 15 seconds to buff in. I also usually skip blush and highlighter with five-minute makeup because generally, my face gets shiny anyway, and I have to be light-handed with blush anyway.

Lip balm/crayon
I tend to reach for a tinted lip balm or a lip crayon because it's the fastest option to put on.
Favorites: Fresh Sugar Lip Balm, Kiko Creamy Lip Gloss, all Revlon Lip Crayons
