The 5-Minute Beauty Routine

In Beauty by Volume Multimedia0 Comments

We’ve all had those mornings–you wake up in a haze and glance over at the clock just to realize that you’re LATE. Panic sets in. Rushing ensues. Clothes are thrown. Well, take a breath and relax, because all you need is 5 minutes to get your face looking great and get your butt out the door.

1) Moisturize. Apply a nourishing face moisturizer like Philosophy Miracle Worker before any make up to give skin a dewy, fresh appearance.

2) Even Out Skin Tone. The key to a flawless finish is having a balanced skintone. Apply a beauty balm like Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream to smooth out skin, and follow up with your favorite concealer on any dark spots.

3) Plump Those Lashes. Skip the liner in a hurry and focus on getting thick, full lashes. My secret is Benefit They’re Real! Mascara for getting tons of volume and length.

4) Highlight. Add a natural glow to cheeks with a long-lasting blush like Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush. Use a highlighter like Benefit’s High Beam to get a dewy-fresh finish.

5) Pop Of Color. Applying color to your pout is one of the best ways to liven your face. I love a nice subtle dull-red like Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter Pink Truffle.
