My 5 Minute Makeup Routine

Your alarm clock doesn’t go off or you hit the snooze button one too many times and now you are strapped for time, but still need to look presentable before heading out the door. We all have had mornings like this so I thought I would share my 5-minute makeup routine that will save you time on busy mornings and gets you out the door looking perfectly put together even though you may not feel like you are!

Listed below are the products I use for face, eyes and lips when there is no time for a full makeup routine and everything is from the drugstore!

Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily Anti-Aging SPF 15 in Light/Medium – This provides decent coverage and sun protection.

Garnier Skin Active Clearly Brighter Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller in Light/Medium – This conceals dark circles, reduces puffiness and brightens under eyes.

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Face Powder in Creamy Natural – I set my face and under eyes with this powder and it provides additional coverage.

Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar – This is a highlighter, bronzer & blush in one which comes in handy when there is no time to apply contour, bronzer, highlight and blush (also comes in Hermosa Rose and Beauty’s Touch).

Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in Deep Brown – When there is no time to do your brows, this will define your brows with natural color and holds your brows in place without clumpiness.

Essence Waterproof Gel Eye Pencil in Cocoa Bean – When there is no time to apply eye shadow, line your upper lash line and your lower water line to define your eyes.

Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara in Black – This mascara gives your lashes length and volume in one sweep, lasts all day, doesn’t clump or flake and is one of my favorite mascaras.

Maybelline Baby Lips Color Balm Crayon in Blush Burst – This is surprisingly pigmented, contains moisturizing oils that will keep your lips hydrated throughout the day and is my new favorite lip crayon (I also love the shade Sassy Scarlet).

This routine takes me about 5 minutes (sometimes 7 minutes) and I am ready to take on the day without looking like a hot mess. Let me know in the comments below what go-to 5 minute makeup products you use to get yourself ready and out the door and until next time, stay happy, healthy and beautiful!
