5 Minute Makeup - The LV Guide

With fall in full swing, we all know how busy life can get. Today I’m going to show you how you can still look great no matter how busy the day. Personally, I like to pack a to-go bag with all the essentials I need- just in case I have to do my makeup in the car!

Okay, the clock is ticking, you’ve got 5 minutes for your makeup.

To begin, you’ll need your preferred foundation or tinted moisturizer and some concealer.

1. DiorSkin Airflash Foundation
2. BareMinerals Complexion Rescue
3. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

Next, you’ll need a little bronzer and a little blush to apply to your cheeks for that beautiful natural flush. You can also add a touch of highlighter if you have an extra few seconds.

9. Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer
10. Becca Shimmering Skin Highlighter
11. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush

On to the eyes, you’ll need primer, eyeshadow, eyeliner (optional), and mascara. If you’re a real time saver like I am I use a primer/shadow combo so if I want to add more shadow later when I have more time, my eyelids are already set. Or you can prime and use a small shadow palette, either method will work! Another time saver you can use is grabbing an eyeshadow stick, basically eye shadow in tube form and you just swipe it across your lid. Complete the look with some eyeliner if you have time, otherwise go straight to mascara.

4. Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Eyeshadow Palette
5. BareMinerals 5-in-1 Cream Eyeshadow
6. Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color
7. Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil
8. Kevyn Aucion Volume Mascara

Extra few seconds? Grab your favorite lip balm and get going- you’ve got stuff to do!
