Makeup Must-Know: A Full Face of Makeup in 5 Minutes

Got 5 minutes? Then you have time for a polished, fresh look. Some mornings the alarm doesn’t go off, the kids need help with a project due today, or you’re just running late as hell. Here is your fastest face yet, and they’ll never know you threw it on while waiting for the coffee machine to warm up. This is my go-to running errands face because it makes me feel presentable but gets me out the door with time to spare!

Minute 1:
Apply a BB or CC cream like Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream to entire face.

Minute 2:
Apply a matte bronzer such as Too Faced Chocolate Soleil to the crease of your eye with a fluffy crease brush. Apply the same bronzer to contour areas.

Minute 3:
Use your fingers to apply a cream blush like Stila Convertible Color to apples of cheeks and lips.

Minute 4:
Sketch a soft liner like Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Smoke along the top lash line and sketch slightly into the outer corner. Blend well with a brush.

Minute 5:
Apply a great mascara like L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess to your top and bottom lashes.

Watch my video tutorial below to see how it's done.

The five products I used to create this look are:

  1. Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream
  2. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil
  3. Stila Convertible Color
  4. Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Smoke
  5. L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess

I have a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design, but it's creating works of art on faces that I love most. By day, I am a Senior Education Consultant for Sephora as well as a freelance makeup artist. The rest of the time, I'm creating content for my makeup and beauty blog, Wake Up for Makeup, reading product reviews, watching tutorial videos and reading makeup artist books. I live and breathe this stuff and if you could eat makeup, I'd probably do that too. I also love painting abstracts, running, attending music festivals and acting weird with my husband and our two awesome cats. I'm here to tell you what products are legit, how to better use the ones you have, give you ideas to shake up your routine and guide you through some fun tutorials I know you can dominate.
