Gorgeous in Minutes


By Katherine Huether

Are you pressed for time most mornings? Your child loses a shoe and you need to help him find it before the bus comes. You hit snooze one too many times and find yourself scrambling to get ready for work. Mornings can be very hectic and no matter how hard you try, you can't seem to find the time you need to get ready for your day properly.

If this sounds all too familiar, you may think you don't have time to put on makeup. The reality is that no matter how pressed for time you are, you can still find some time to apply a little color. The secret is that you should develop an effective five-minute routine designed to help you look your best in a limited amount of time.

Everyone needs a five-minute makeup routine. Even if you're the type to wear a full face every day, it is still worth your while to develop something you can do fast, just in case. Not only that, but a shorter routine is perfect for midday touchups or for those moments when you want to transition your makeup from your day look to your night look. Here's some information on what every five-minute routine should include.

Apply Simple Base Makeup
The first thing you should do as part of your quick makeup routine is to apply base makeup. There are several strategies you can use.

Tinted moisturizer. This two-in-one strategy saves time. You can either buy a tinted product for your skin type and complexion or you can mix your regular moisturizer and foundation together for easy application. This is ideal if you would like to still apply your full eye and lip makeup.

Regular foundation. If you are willing to forego your regular eye and lip makeup, or streamline the two routines, making your regular base makeup a priority is a great strategy because it evens out your skin and makes it look flawless. After your done with this step, however, you will only have time for a few other steps.

Face powder. Of course, you can skip your base makeup all together and swipe some powder over your skin after you apply makeup. This will provide a simple and effective base for blusher and eye shadow. However, it does little to even out your skin tone.
