My Five Minute Face: Everyday Beauty Routine.

We all have heard the term ” it happened in a New York Minute,” right? Well I learned the true meaning of the phrase just a few weeks after moving to the city. Things here happen fast, and you’ve got to be preapred for whatever comes you way, before  it comes your way.

My five minute beauty routine may have been perfected in the big city, but I promise it will work wonders no matter where you are. With the perfect products, tools and just a few minutes in the morning – here’s the beauty routine that will have you primed to #killit,

Foundation: Bare Minerals Original Foundation with SPF 15 is the perfect foundation for a fast face fix! This foundation has become a cult-favorite over the years and as soon as you try it, you’ll know exactly why.

I just place a dab into the lid of the container and “swirl, tap and buff” my way to five minute perfection. The mineralized powder spreads so evenly and light, and leaves little room for error like with a liquid foundation. I use “Medium Tan” but a quick stop at the makeup counter will help you find the perfect shade match.

Bronzer: Too Faced Sun Bunny Natural Bronzer . From my fair-skinned friends, to my deep-brown beauties, this bronzer is perfect for so many shades and it adds the perfect sun kissed glow in a flash. The pink undertones mimic how your skin naturally reacts to the sun, so it looks just like you’ve left the poolside! I just use my EcoTools powder brush to apply on the places where the sun would naturally touch my face, like my cheeks, forehead, and brim of my nose.

Mascara: I used to shell out $30 on Diorshow mascara, but then I learned the (top secret trick) from one of my good friends (and Sephora makeup artist) that a good drug-store mascara can do all of the same tricks, for a fraction of the price. I love to experiment with different mascara’s depending on my needs but for everyday, I’m loving Maybelline’s Rocket Express Mascara.

Eyeliner: Maybelline’s Unstoppable Eyeliner is a make-up bag STAPLE! Goes on smooth, with no weird clumping or smearing. And, it’s under $10! This goes on in a flash without the fuss.

Lipstick: To complete my five minute face, I put on a quick lippie to match the day’s mood and I’m ready to conquer the concrete jungle! Right now I have the Smashbox Be Legendary lipstick in Honey on rotation for everyday.

Total time: 5:00 Feeling: Fierce!

With the right tools, products, and a little practice, I promise you’ll master your five minute face in no time.

    I wish I was that fast with a quick face but I think for me I would skipping a few or more items and going for an almost no makeup look.

    I adore that Dior Show too… but its so crazy expensive and cant afford that luxury! But… my secret is using L’Oreal Voluminous mascara. Its SO similar to Dior Show (in my opinion)… so try it next time!

    I love a quick makeup routine! As much as I love playing with makeup (or at least pretending to know what i’m doing) I like to keep it simple and to the basics! I use bare minerals too and love it!

    I’ve been wearing bare minerals foundation (in medium tan) for 10 years! It’s my favorite too! I have to try out the Sun Bunny bronzer now that you recommended it!

      Isn’t it the best? It’s almost fool-proof and so easy to apply, the fact that it’s a mineralized powder (as opposed to a liquid foundation that needs to be applied very carefully) makes it so great for on-the-go!
