Of course, I adore makeup, but in the past I often found myself spending countless hours reapplying mascara behind my bathroom mirror, hoping makeup products would make my face look perfect. I learned over time that slathering on products on my face won’t make me beautiful, its inner beauty that truly matters. However, I still love wearing makeup, just for the fun of it. So, I decided to squeeze my 1-hour makeup routine, into a mere 5 minutes! Here are some tips and tricks that will help you save time in the morning.
- Skip Mascara: Don’t get me wrong-I think mascara is a wonderful product, but it is also very time-consuming. I wasted hours with mascara, attempting to create dark, long, and thick lashes everyday. Although mascara provides a immersive effects, there are many other products such as eyeshadow that can create an eyeopening effect.
- Wear blush and powder: Blush and powder are a great duo. Powder creates an even skin tone, covering up blemishes, and blush lightens up your face, giving you a natural look. Plus, they only take seconds to apply.
- Skip Eyeliner: Like mascara, eyeliner takes quite a while to perfect. Attempting to create a perfect wing will take more than just a few minutes, so next time, pass on the eyeliner.
- Wear Eyeshadow: Eyeshadow brightens up your eyes, creating a color contrast between your eye, and the shadow. Additionally, you can probably apply eyeshadow in under thirty seconds. Talk about speedy!
As you can see, developing a five-minute makeup look is simple and saves a vast amount of time! Tomorrow morning, why not test out a five minute make up routine? Trust me, you’ll still look fantastic.
