In-A-Hurry Makeup Routine

We all have those mornings when we hit snooze five times and end up with no time to get ready. And let's face it, most of us are not comfortable being out all day with no makeup on. Doing your makeup in the car is dangerous, and doing it when you get to work or school is not very responsible, so how are you supposed to look put together with no time? Here's a quick routine for the days when you're in a hurry. 1. For the face, use a tinted moisturizer or BB cream with your fingers instead of a foundation with a brush. This will moisturize and even out the skin tone in one step, and you don't have to worry too much about blending. You can conceal and powder if you need to.



2. Fill in your brows. This seems like a step you might be able to skip, but brows really do make the face look more balanced and polished. You'd be surprised at the difference good eye brows can make. A little powder duo like this one from Anastasia is convenient and natural looking, and you can mix the colors to match your hair. Eye shadow will also work.

3. Mascara will instantly brighten up your eyes and make you look more awake. This is definitely a must, even for rushed mornings.



4. Lip color. Gloss, lipstick, tinted balm, any color on the lips will bring life to your face. Since you're going natural with the eyes, maybe pick a brighter shade for the lips.

This quick routine cuts out blush/bronzer, highlighting, eye shadow, liner, and any other unnecessary steps to leave you with a natural looking face in about five minutes. By only doing the bare essentials, you'll feel more comfortable and look more polished, with very little time or effort required.
