The 5 Minute Face

by Nicole Erin

This is the perfect 5-minute makeup routine for those busy days where you need to look put together but definitely don’t have the time to get it together. These are my go-to products to create the perfect natural, effortless glow in a hurry! First I start with Urban Decay Quick Fix Hydra Charged Complexion Prep Priming Spray to wake up my skin before I apply any makeup. It’s my favorite priming spray because it hydrates, balances and brightens your skin while also reducing the look of pores. Once I’ve sprayed that all over I grab bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream in the shade Wheat 4.5. When I’m in a hurry I like to use a tinted moisturizer because it gives you lots of hydration and is lightweight on your skin. Complexion Rescue gives you sheer-to-medium coverage and creates a natural, healthy-looking glow.

Now onto the eyes, I quickly curl my lashes then apply Smashbox Super Fan Mascara to my top & bottom lashes to give them volume. It’s seriously the best mascara that gets the job done without clumping. The double-bristle brush coats your lashes from root to tip giving you the perfect fanned-out voluminous look. Next up my brows, if you’re blonde like me you can’t always see your eyebrows, so I like to start off with Benefit Gimme Brow in a 3 or 3.5 color. Then quickly fill in and shape them using Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil. I honestly never leave the house without my brows done, it really helps to define your face and always makes me feel more confident. Once my brows are done I use the Dior Flash Luminizer Radiance Booster Pen in pearly pink to highlight my brow bone & cheekbones. This helps to lift your eyes and make them appear bigger whole also giving you a natural glow. To set everything I use Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray! I need not explain, it’s just simply the best and you need it in your life. Finally, I complete the look with Fenty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Fenty Glow. It’s a beautiful shimmery rose nude that I am obsessed with.

There you have it, my 5-minute makeup routine! Thanks so much for reading, check back next week when I share my morning skincare routine!
