How To: Apply Makeup In Five Minutes or more

I have heard a lot of articles about applying make up as fast as you can, here is my version of it.

After taking a bath, apply some moisturizer on your face. Leave it on your face for sometime; say a minute or two, so that your skin gets enough time to absorb the moisture. I usually apply my moisturizer is a patting motion. This way of applying moisturizer also keeps your face looking alive and gives that "fresh" look.

In the meantime, get your entire makeup ready, so that you do not end up looking for it. You need to prepare everything so that once that your moisturizer has been absorbed by your skin you won't stress yourself finding for your make up.

Now, apply the foundation on your face and blend it with the help of a sponge or a foundation brush. I usually do it with a sponge.

Next, you will have to apply your favorite eye shadow, followed by eyeliner, which will help define your eyes.

Concentrate on the shape of your eyes while using the liner, since you only have limited time in hand and do not want to use it in correcting wrong make up.

Apply your favorite mascara on the tips of your eyelashes. Apply a few small strokes of brow pencil, to enhance the color or shape of your eyebrows. Remember to pick the right color for your brows.

Apply a nice shade of lipstick on your lips. Instead of directly applying the lipstick onto your lips, use a lip brush to spread the color evenly over them in less time.

Put some blush on your cheeks to get some color on your cheeks for that "rosy" color, with the help of a blush brush of course.

Next, gently apply some loose powder on your nose and the t-zone. This will prevent the area from becoming oily throughout the day, this is to set your make up. If you don't want to use loose powder, you can try anything in the market to set your make up.

Last but not the least is to have a final check in the mirror to see if you are all set.

And there you have it! Usually for me foundation, mascara, blush and lipstick is what I need. But if I need to step it up a notch I use this.

Have a great Monday! ^_^

Much love!
