Hello beauty lovers!
We all have those mornings where we’re strapped for time yet still need to look presentable. Trust me when I say I’ve been there! I also have a lot of friends who are moms and just don’t have the energy or the time to spend primping in front of the mirror but still want to look fresh and put together.
Whether you have a busy schedule, your snooze through your alarm or your morning just isn’t going the way you planned, putting on a full face of makeup isn’t always possible (or high on your list of priorities).
I’ve had my fair share of practice over the years when it comes to applying makeup in a pinch (my hair though, is a different story…). So today I thought I’d share my foolproof 5-minute makeup routine - powered by Beautycounter - to save you time on those busy mornings.
· Tint Skin Hydration Foundation
· Touch-Up Skin Concealer Pen
· Brow Pencil
· Mascara (Lengthening OR Volumizing)
· Powder Blush Duo
· Lip Gloss
*Each product can be customized by shade and preference!
Here's how you too can achieve a perfectly put together, fresh-faced look in no time at all (and more specifically, 5 minutes flat!).
Perfect your complexion.
On most mornings I opt for lighter but even-looking coverage when it comes to foundation. I want my skin to have a healthy, even glow without feeling like I’ve got a ton of makeup on. For this I use Beautycounter’s Tint Skin Foundation. I love how blend-able the foundation is and the end result feels completely weightless.
Once my foundation is evenly applied, I reach for my Touchup Skin Concealer Pen to cover any noticeable redness or dark circles under my eyes. This step takes seconds but really completes the look!
Believe it or not, for the last 6 months I’ve only been using 3 products on my eyes on a regular basis—whether I’m trying to save time or not! I tend towards a more simple eye and bolder lip for everyday, which is why I love what the 5-Minute Face kit includes – the Colour Define Brow Pencil and either the volumizing or Lengthening mascara (the lengthening mascara has been reformulated and the volumizing is awesome if you’re like me and want to add length to your lashes!).
Splash of colour.
Don't forget to leave the house with a pretty, natural flush! I like to lightly apply the Powder Blush Duo in Tawny/Blush to the apples of my cheeks. It adds just enough glow without being over the top.
While there’s nothing I love more than a classic bold lip, a 5-Minute makeup routine calls for something simpler. Before I head out the door I'll often swipe on a bit of Lip Gloss (my fave is Dahlia) and I’m out the door!
Super easy right? Now you have a put together makeup look that takes less than 5 minutes to complete! You know my love for Beautycounter and their efforts to get safe products in the hands of everyone. Looking great and non-toxic skincare and beauty, yes, please!
