When I became a mom, I knew I would really have to pare down my makeup products and in turn, it would really bring down the time it takes me to apply it. I was looking for a routine that took 15 minutes max and try to find a way to get it down to only 10 minutes and then only 5 minutes, too for when that’s all I had to spare. So for the 5 and 10 minute routines, you will either eliminate a product or use it in a different way. Let’s begin, shall we?
BECCA Velvet Blurring Primer Perfecting Base helps you start with a smooth surface to put your foundations and makeup on. This is optional, of course! (30 seconds)
IT Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage gives me a clean, smooth face to work with. It’s a Color Correction cream that gives you light, flawless coverage. With SPF50 and 7 colors to choose from it’s the perfect foundation for those who don’t like foundation. (2 minutes)
Now if you have perfect skin or just hate anything all over your face, skip these steps and save yourself a couple minute.
EyeStudio Brow Precise Micro Pencil to shape your brows and fill them in. For the 5 and 10 min routine you leave this step out but it’nice to give your brows a little love when you have time. (2 minutes)

All About Eyes
Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Palette,The Blushed Nudes is my go-to palette right now. It’s got all the pretty shimmer nudes that I am absolutely loving right now. You’ll use this for the 10 and 15 minute routines but skip for the 5 minutes. I’ll show you what to use on your eyes when you only have 5 minutes for our makeup. (3 minutes)
24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil URBAN DECAY is the creamiest eyeliner I’ve ever worn. I used to take the time to give me a winged eyeliner but ain’t nobody got time for that anymore. Besides, I was never very good at it. Now a days, all I do is line my upper waterline and call it good. Just to give my mascara more pop. (1 minute)
Diorshow Maximizer 3D Lash Primer and Dior Diorshow Pump‘N’Volume Mascara are my secret weapons for lashes. One coat of the primer and I let it dry while I put on my powders. Then I come back and put on 2 coat of mascara. Major lash love. (2 minutes)
Glow Baby Glow
Diorskin Nude Air Healthy Glow Invisible Powder is the first set of powders I put on my face. I just put a really thin layer to make sure my foundation is set. If you don’t plan to contour or don’t need any kind press powder, feel free to skip this step. (30 seconds)
The next two powders are completely optional but I totally recommend it for your makeup routine. The first is Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powder, mine is in Fresh Tan. It’s the perfect boozer with gold tones. TIME-SAVING TIP: when you are in a rush and don’t have time to work on your eye shadow, use this as your eye shadow. It’s quick and easy and gives your eyes a nice pop. (1 minute)
Limited Edition Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer is really an amazing highlighter. Put it on your forehead, nose, under eyes, and on the bow of your top lip. You can also put this under brows and in the corner of your eyes to make the look bit brighter. (1 minute)
Time for the finishing touches. Lips are the last thing we put on. I’m addicted to nude colors because they are so casual and if it rubs off and you can’t re-apply right away, you won’t look like a hot mess. I love this Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Nude Lipcolour in the color JLo’s nude. To top it off, I go with Urban’s Decay’s LipGloss is the color Naked. (2 minutes) Pressed for time? Just gloss those lips and save a minute.
