The Quick and Dirty Makeup Routine

My mornings go a little something like this…5:30 bootcamp, then back to shower, make a smoothie or two, then rush out the door to fight the traffic! Wait, what about makeup?! 

For basic beauty survival, I had to come up with a quick and dirty beauty game plan that would keep me polished and prompt! 

Here is a full proof way to get a fresh work appropriate face in five minutes. Seriously, just 5 minutes! Let's get started.


  • Foundation or Tinted Moisturizer
  • Concealer or Highlighter
  • Cream Coral Blush (great for all skin tones)
  • Matte Bronzer
  • Brow Pencil (shade lighter than your brows)
  • Brown Eye Liner
  • Mascara
  • Light Pink Lip Stain or Gloss






What do I use for my 5 minute face?


Make Up For Ever HD Foundation

YSL Touche Eclat

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Dark (in place of a Bronzer)

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Calypso Coral

Kevyn Aucoin Precision Brow Pencil in Brunette

Get the Perfect Nude Lip

Smashbox Legendary Lip Gloss in Posy Pink
MAC Lip Liner in Cork
Smashbox Legendary Lipstick in Nylon Nude
Next to red, nude lips are super sexy! They allow your eyes to be the focal point. A nude pout, is also a great way to accentuate the natural shape of your lips in an uber sensual way. If you like you can use your liner to slightly overdraw your lips. 

Pair your nude pout with well lined or smoky eyes to get the full effect. Think J. Lo, Penelope Cruz, and Kim Kardashian.
