Five Minute Makeup




I can feel my teeth chattering just by the thought of finishing my makeup in five minutes or less. I am one of those girls that either has a full face of makeup on or nothing at all. It's very hard for me to find some kind of middle ground -- especially in 5 freaking minutes!

But I've turned a new leaf and decided that it's not necessary to look like a drag queen every time I put my face on... of course I'm exaggerating a bit, but you get the idea! Today I'm going to show you my go to products for a quick and easy 5 minute makeup!


A bit of a disclaimer before I get into it... on a typical day my eyebrows take at least 5-10 minutes because they are so sparse. Unless you have naturally thin eyebrows like myself, it will be hard to understand why that is necessary, but just go with it. My eyebrow time is not included in the five minutes. Am I cheating? Maybe, but get over it... a girl's gotta have eyebrows!



FACE

Powder Foundation: MAC Studio Fix in NC25

Bronzer: Benefit Hoola Bronzer (Review)

Blush: Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface (Review)

Because I can't be bothered with liquid foundation for 5 min makeup, powder foundation is a must! Hoola is my favorite bronzer and because there isn't a lot going on with my eyes I like to use a pink blush to brighten up the rest of my face


EYES AND BROWS


Brow Pencil: Maybelline Brow Pencil in Blonde

Mascara: Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume in Brown

Eyeshadow: MAC Patina

Maybelline's Brow Pencil is one that I've been using for years. It is the perfect color if you are blonde and because it is a hard pencil it has great staying power. MAC Patina is a very complex neutral eyeshadow that looks beautiful when worn by itself on the lid. I prefer brown mascara for 5 min makeup because I don't wear eye liner and brown looks more natural.

LIPS

MAC Angel Lipstick


I think Angel is a no brainer. It looks gorgeous with Dollface and it doesn't require a lip gloss or liner. (Review)


BRUSHES


Real Techniques Blush Brush -- bronzer

MAC 168 -- blush

MAC 217 -- eyeshadow


Sorry they are dirty... I used them right before doing this post :)
 
 
 
 
 
 
I usually change my makeup everyday, but if I only have 5 nerve wracking minutes to throw on my face this would definitely be my go-to look! It's makes me feel pretty and put together!
 
 
 
What is the one thing you can't leave out in your makeup routine? Eyeliner, mascara, eyebrows, foundation?

    1. Good to know... I thought it was both! I'm still sad because it will be harder to keep up with my favorite blogs without google reader.
