If you need an easy, fast makeup look, to get out the door, looking presentable, no special skills required, you’re in the right place for some 5 minute makeup.
Whether you’re a busy mom, a young professional or 50+ and wanting to start doing a little makeup, but not a lot, you can do this 5 minute makeup look. It’s universally flattering and fits into what I call my EDC method. This stands for even, define and color. Read more about that HERE.
A lot can happen in 5 minutes and the more you do this streamlined routine, the faster you’ll get.
I first uploaded this 5 minute makeup look to my Instagram’s IGTV and it seemed like a hit, especially with the moms, so I decided to expand on it here.
I use mostly Glossier products for this 5 minute makeup look because they are so user-friendly and apply so nice with just your fingers. If any of these look like winners, shop via this link because you’ll save 10% off your first order.
You will need
- Tinted moisturizer, BB or CC Cream
- Liquid or cream blush
- Brow gel
- Lip color
- Apply a complexion evening product, i.e. CC/BB cream
In the video, I’m using bareMinerals Complexion Rescue, which I love but recently concluded it clogs my pores due to coconut alkanes. In the photo, above is a new fave, Thrive Causemetics Buildable Blur. Choose something with SPF that you can easily apply with your fingers.
- Brighten under eye circles and any blemishes with concealer.
I’m using Glossier Stretch Concealer in Light.
- Add color to your cheeks with a liquid or cream blush.
I love Glossier’s Cloud Paint. If you have a little extra time, try it on your eyelids too!
- Define eyebrows with a brow gel
Glossier Boy Brow is so easy and effective.
- Apply mascara
In my video, I used Ulta Beauty’s Plush Drama which is a fave, but apparently discontinued. I like Glossier Lash Slick for natural lashes that don’t smudge all day. It doesn’t clump so you can apply it quickly without fear.
- Swipe on lip color
I grab Glossier Generation G for a natural, matte lip that sticks around.
See? You can do this. Once you master your 5 minute face, you can add a few things little by little. A single eyeshadow, then maybe two. Eyeliner if you’re feeling crazy.
Thanks so much for reading. I hope this has been helpful and if so, share with a fellow busy pal.
