Sometimes were all in a hurry or some of us don't want to spend too much time dolling ourselves up in the morning. I love to do my makeup and get ready for a night out or just in general and I usually like to give myself some extra time to do that but sometimes I am in a hurry {usually if I have slept in or spent too much time picking out an outfit} and need a quick 5-10 minutes to do my makeup.

I have tried different makeup routines and literally "timed myself" doing it to try and figure out what works best in a 5 minute time frame. Honestly, grab some products and start timing yourself doing your makeup. You will definitely find a routine that works best for you.

These are the following products that I found work best for me when I am in a hurry or just want to do a quick makeup look without spending too much time doing it..

Origins VitaZing SPF 15
I apply this all over my face with my fingers. This stuff is my absolute favorite product ever. It gives my face a little bit of a tint and leaves my face looking dewy which I personally love. This is what I use instead of foundation..

MAC StudioFinish Concealer
I apply this concealer to any blemishes, redness around my nose or chin. I apply this with a concealer brush or my index finger.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser Concealer
I apply this concealer underneath my eyes as well as my eye lids and brow bone to even everything out.

Bobbi Brown Long- Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black
I apply this along the upper lash line and winging it out slightly for that polished look

Revlon Brow Fantasy Eyebrow Pencil & Gel
Eyebrows are a very important feature that frames our face. A polished brow is key to every makeup look or even if your not wearing any makeup. I use this to fill in any sparse areas as well as define my brows.

L'Oreal Full Definition Voluminous Mascara
I have so many favorites when it comes to mascara but lately this has been my go to mascara. I apply a couple of coats and it gives my lashes a lot of volume and it doesn't flake onto my cheeks or under eye area.

MAC Blush in Pink Swoon
 I apply this to the apples of my cheeks to give that instant pretty

NARS Laguna Bronzer
I swipe this on my cheekbones, along the hair line and little down my nose to add that sun kissed glow

MAC Lipglass in Pink Lemonade
A couple swipes of this on the lips gives the perfect finish

What types of products do you use that you find are the quickest to do your makeup?
I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by, xo!!


  1. That's pretty quick dear. I might spent 5-7 minutes maybe to finish eyebrow, curling lashes, blush and lipstick!

  3. This sounds very similar to what I've been doing lately! Especially during the summer months, I don't always feel like using a lot of products or spending a lot of time on my make up. I want to give the Origins VitaZing a try, I've heard great things about it :)
