Running low on time? Late to work? We’ll keep this brief—here’s our five-step makeup routine when you’re in a time crunch. Ready, set, go!
1. Prep and Prime
Moisturize your face with an oil-free gel moisturizer.
2. Cover Up
Dot foundation or concealer on your nose, cheeks, chin, and the sides of your nose. Pat on (don’t rub!) the dots in a circular motion. Swipe on translucent powder over your T-zone to avoid shine later.
Curl lashes and apply lengthening mascara.
4. Bronze and Blush
Use a bronzer/blush combo (we love this one by Lorac) and begin by dusting bronzer on the perimeter of your face (hairline, temples, jawline) with a large, fluffy brush. Finish by smiling and sweeping the blush over the apples of your cheeks.
The easiest way to get some color on your lips is to use a tinted lip balm. Less messy than lipstick and you can apply on the go!
