Looking for an easy 5 minute makeup routine?
Want to look photo fabulous in just 5 minutes?
Excellent! You’re in the right place.
Have you found with your crazy-busy lifestyle, and with people snapping random pictures & selfies everywhere, that finding the time to look at least half way decent can be a challenge?
If you read my last blog, you’ll know my regular, beloved makeup routine was thrown out the window while I was traveling around Europe. It just wasn’t viable to apply a full face of makeup, check my emails, pack bags, eat breakfast AND check-out of hotels on time. That’s why after a week of struggling, I surrendered to flow and created a quick 5 minute makeup routine that saved me heaps of time in the mornings. You can imagine how happy my hubby was 🙂.
You know, as I write I’m still living like I’m on holidays. This 5 minute makeup routine is still my go-to in the mornings, especially on days after I have a 6:30am yoga class.
5 Minute Makeup Routine
If you’re ready to ditch long makeup sessions before work or the school run, here’s my game-changing 5 minute makeup routine. It’s quick, easy and (with a little practice) will have you out the door in a flash.
1. Cleanse, Tone, Moisturise
Start by cleansing in the shower to save you a bunch of time. Then followup with your toner & moisturiser because hydrated skin is the #1 key 🔑 to helping your makeup look good and stay on longer.
2. CC Cream / Foundation
A light layer of either of these will create a flawless canvas and give your skin a smooth even, appearance.
Apply a quick swipe across your cheeks and eyelids. This gives a healthy sun-kissed glow and adds healthy colour to your face.
4. Highlight Glow
Add on top of your cheeks to emphasise & highlight your stunning cheek bones.
Use lashings of mascara to open up your eyes and make them command attention.
Feather your eyebrows to frame your face and to make them look tidy.
Apply lipstick in the car to create luscious, moist lips and to add an extra pop of colour.
BONUS: This quick 5 minute makeup routine helps give symmetry to your face; important because when something has symmetry your eye sees it as beautiful 🌹.
I had this makeup routine down to a fine art and in some very confined places. Doing this everyday helped me feel good and confident, ready to tackle whatever journey we ended up on. The only days I skipped the makeup was when I headed to the beach, instead opting for sunscreen and a good lip balm.
Honestly, makeup can be quick & easy – when you know how.
However, I understand that many of you are still searching for a way to CONFIDENTLY & FLAWLESSLY apply your foundation, eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, blush, contour and lipstick.
Stay tuned for my next blog as I’ve created an exciting, confidence-building solution for YOU.
