5-Minute Face Makeup Tutorial

5-Minute Face Makeup Look


This is one of my favorite looks because it gets me out the door fast. Left to my own devices, I'll spend an hour sitting at my vanity perfecting one brow.

This 5-minute face look is easy and unfussy - the kind of makeup I love.

Some of the products listed below are recent purchases - others are ones I've had in heavy rotation for years. All of them are fast, easy to use and help you give good great face.






5-Minute Face


1. Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional - There is always time to prime. Words to live by! This one has been a staple since it launched. It smoothes out my skin and makes pores vanish without that heavy, slippery silicone feeling.

2. It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream - I reach for this more often than I'm willing to admit. It blends beautifully, sinks in quickly and gives great coverage for how lightweight it is. The SPF 50 is an added bonus that makes me feel very responsible.

3. Tarte Cheek Stain in True Love - The color is new to me but the love for this formula is not. I love the sheer-yet-buildable watermelon hue, which you can layer to a full-on pop. Your cheeks peek through and its sexy and summery and perfect. Oh, it lasts ALL DAY too.

4. Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless! Powder - A quick slap of this on my t-zone for added coverage and shine control is a necessity. I love that I can use this in small areas or blend all over my face for a believably perfect base.

5. Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Rosegold - An absolute staple. Not only is the color gorgeous, but the formula is stupidly easy to use. I love the convienence of a cream shadow stick, and this one wears like iron with or without a powder shadow on top.

6. Kat Von D Tattoo Brow - The blonde shade has been my go-to brow product since I purchased it a few months ago. The nib is ultra-fine and builds those short, hair-like strokes in seconds. The color also has no red undertones: score!

7. Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow - I wear the light/medium shade and use this to finish off every brow look I do. The tinted gel is opaque, and magically perfects any brow products under it. Gaps are filled and hairs fluffed in mere seconds.

8. YSL Faux Cils Effect Shocking Mascara - A newer release, and new to me as well. The washable formula has yet to smudge and my lashes are happy come time to remove. Easy to use and builds inky black lashes fairly quickly. An added bonus, the floral scent makes me feel dramatic and glamorous.

9. SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Infusion Lip Stain in Peony - A brightened, rose lip is my go-to when I'm in a hurry. It flatters all complexions, goes with anything and just looks - healthy. This formula is a great dupe for the YSL Glossy Stains, albeit slightly less glossy.

What are your go-to products for a 5-minute face?
