5 Minute Face

*everything mentioned in this post has been purchased by me*

Hey Guys,

It’s no secret that I am NOT a morning person. If you’re anything like me, you will take every second of sleep you can get.  I would love to lounge around all day in my pajamas if I could but my job requires me to look somewhat presentable.
So I have come up with a “five minute” morning makeup routine with just a few products that works perfectly for me on busy mornings.

After I wash my face in the morning I start by dabbing some moisturizer all over my face, before I rub this in I also dab on a little bit of MAC Prolongwear Concealer and blend with a Beauty Blender.
Because I will be wearing this makeup all day I like to set it with a powder, I use MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. I prefer to use a pressed powder for this because it’s less fuss when I’m in a rush. After that I just throw on some bronzer and blush to add some colour back into my face. I use only one brush during this process, the one I tend to go for the most is the Real Techniques Multi Task brush. (pretty sure it was made just for this)
I was blessed with bushy brows so I don’t have to worry about filling them everyday. However I do like to use a tinted brow gel... Like I said, they’re bushy. They need to be tamed.
To finish, I just pop on some mascara and whichever lip colour I decide on and…

A full face of makeup in under 5 minutes! 



  1. Love this! I really need to work out a 5 minute makeup routine, but putting mascara on really slows me down! I think I need a better eyelash curler, or perhaps just some more practice. And the multitask brush is one of my favourites, except I tend to only use it blush. I'll have to try actually multitasking with it!

    1. I can totally understand how mascara could slow you down..(that's probably what takes me the longest every morning) but it makes a huge difference in making me look more awake!

  2. I am always running late in the mornings! This 5 minute face would be perfect for me!

    1. Mornings suck!
      Give it a try and let me know how it goes :)
