How much time do you need every day to do you makeup? 30, 40, 50 minutes or more? Today’s modern women are perfectionists. They want to look their best 24/7 and not have to fix mistakes every couple of minutes. Sadly, very few women have time to spare in the morning. The good news is that you can do a complete face of makeup in as little as 5 minutes.
6 Quick Makeup Tips For Working Women
1. Cleanse & Moisturize in The Evening
A lot of women don’t remove their makeup when they get home. Some even sleep with their make-up on. This mistake will cost you a lot the next day when your skin is filled with zits, cracks, and imperfections. You’ll end up spending a lot of time on applying foundation, and you certainly won’t have any time left for your hair. But if you clean your face thoroughly at night and you moisturize, your face will look incredible the next day. Just apply a BB cream, blush and mascara, and you’re good to go.
2. Care For Your Eyebrows
You might think that just because you have well-defined lips and big eyes nobody will notice skinny eyebrows. Wrong! The whole dynamics of your face depends on your eyebrows. And if you’re used to plucking them all the time, you’ll never have properly balanced facial features. Some women look gorgeous without any make-up. Often, they have beautiful, natural eyebrows to compensate for the lack of definition.
3. Cheekbone Contouring
If you want your face to look amazing in as little as 5 minutes, all you need to do is contour your cheeks. Use a darker brown on the upper cheeks, right on the bone line, and then a lighter shade above the bone line. For more impact, use a shimmery illuminator. That’s all you need for beautiful cheeks, and it takes less than 5 minutes to do.

4. Matte Lipstick
If you don’t have time for elaborate makeup, you can just use mascara for your eyes and lipstick in striking deep nuances. Dark red and burgundy in a matte color are the best. You’ll have full, luscious lips that everyone will envy. The main idea behind this simple makeup is to add a touch of glam to your face without exaggerating. Keep your eyes all natural and focus on your lips for striking makeup that can be completed in less than 5 minutes.
5. Use the Right Brushes
Some women use a single make-up brush for everything when doing their makeup. This takes up a lot of unnecessary time if you’re cleaning the same brush you used for your foundation in order to use blush. The same thing goes for eye shadow. If you want to be able to do your makeup fast and efficiently, you should invest in a set of beauty brushes. You need at least 5. Make sure they’re qualitative so that blending can be done smoothly.
6. Invest in Organic Beauty Products
Whether we’re talking about foundation, makeup base, eye shadow or lipstick, it’s really important to ditch the drugstore products and switch to organics so that you can have a beautiful, youthful complexion all the time. Unlike most products marketed by top brands, organic cosmetics don’t contain any chemicals or parabens (and they don’t test on animals!). They’re excellent for all types of skins, and they’re meant to protect your face regardless of the season. Many contain essential vitamins that feed the skin with nourishing ingredients that preserve your complexion’s elasticity and vitality.
A lot of women today don’t have time to do their makeup. However, looking and feeling great doesn’t have to take more than 5 minutes. And we’re sure you have 5 minutes in the morning to prepare your skin. All you need is a good quality foundation that’s light but creamy, mascara, blush, and an illuminator. Lipstick is optional. If you want your complexion to look fresh and vivid in the morning, you have to take good care of it at night. Use a moisturizer, and apply a mask every week to restore skin cells and eradicate impurities.
