The 90-Second Makeup Routine

With the hectic nature of daily life and all that comes with it, who has time to spend an hour applying makeup EVERY DAY? With trends like blurred shadow and no-makeup makeup, it’s now easier than ever to put your face together in minutes … or seconds! Now, of course, we’re not talkin’ full, glam smoky eyes and perfectly lined red lips — but, when you need to be out the door FAST, this fresh-faced look has got you covered.

Speedy Beauty Routine

Step 1. Start with clean, moisturized skin!

Step 2. Apply your favorite CC or BB cream using either a foundation brush or beauty blender. For the perfect mix of coverage and rosy glow, try Giorgio Armani Luminessence CC Cream. We know you can do this in 45 seconds (or less)!

Step 3. Cover up dark circles or imperfections using a lightweight, brightening concealer like Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer + Treatment and blend out using your ring finger or a concealer brush. You’ve got 20 seconds … let’s go!

Step 4. To save extra time, grab your favorite two-in-one lip and cheek stain (we used the YSL Kiss and Blush) and dab a few dots onto the apples of your cheeks and on lips before blending. Speed through this in 15 seconds … time is running out!

Step 5.  With 10 seconds to spare, swipe a lengthening and volumizing mascara like Urban Decay Perversion for big and bold lashes! Voila! Your look is complete!
