Just about every morning, it’s the same: The moment your alarm clock rings, you reach over and slap the snooze button. Then, when you finally do get out of bed, you panic and think: “How am I supposed to get ready in time to leave for work?!”
Well, panic no more! This article lays out a makeup routine you can finish in 5 minutes flat, letting you leave the house on time and looking great!
1. Conceal Dark Circles
You may be accustomed to getting up in the morning and finding ugly dark circles under your eyes, especially if you didn’t get enough sleep the previous night. To make your face look brighter, fresher, and more awake, use a concealer to hide your dark circles.
First, moisturize your skin. Then, using the tip of your finger, dab the concealer on. Remember, the skin under your eyes is extremely delicate, so be as gentle as possible when applying anything to it. Finally, to keep the concealer in place, add a translucent powder on top of it.
2. Add Some Color To Your Face
Using a peach or pink blush, as well as highlighting your cheekbones with bronzer, adds warmth to your look, allowing you to show a bright, lively face to the world.
When applying bronzer or blush, start with your nose and chin, and if there’s any makeup left on your brush after that, apply it to your hairline to create a sun-kissed appearance. Don’t forget, these kinds of makeup are most effective when applied in small amounts!
3. Emphasize Your Eyes
Your eyes are usually the feature that attracts the most attention when people look at you, so be sure to keep them bright and beautiful with the right shade of eyeshadow.
You can make your eyes stand out and appear more well-rested by applying a neutral-colored eyeshadow to your eyelids. Or, if you prefer, highlight your upper lash line with eyeliner, then use an angled brush to blend it in.
Then, after curling your eyelashes, put on some mascara. Mascara makes your eyelashes stand out and away from your eyes, which really helps you appear more awake.
4. Add Lip Gloss
Lip gloss makes the perfect finishing touch to your quick-and-easy beauty routine. It’s so easy to apply that you may even be able to do it while on your way out the door, as long as you have a convenient mirror to look into.
That’s it: 4 steps you can finish in 5 minutes or less. By following this routine, you can leave the house with self-confidence every day, even if you’re a late sleeper.
