The 3-, 5-, and 10-Minute Face

Not to brag, but we are masters of get-out-the-door-and-on-with-your-day beauty. Give us just three minutes and we can make ourselves look presentable. In five, we can turn presentable into looking pretty good. And in ten minutes…Well, we’re pretty much ready to hit the red carpet at the Oscars. OK, maybe we’re not that skillful, but we do know how to maximize our mirror time. It’s all about prioritization. The order you apply your favorite products is important. If you only have a mere 180 seconds before you simply must leave the house (we all know public transportation waits for no one), don’t start with eyeliner. Here, let us show you our masterful ways… 5 minute makeup

The 3-Minute Face

15 seconds: Primer. We started our look with Dermablend Quick-Fix Concealer Nude 10C. 1 minute: Eyelash Curler. We pumped our Shu Uemura New Generation Eyelash S Curler three times on each eye. 1 minute: Mascara. We applied one generous coat of Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara to the top lashes.

The 5-Minute Face

1 minute: Concealer. We blended Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer under the eyes. 30 seconds: Blush. We dusted L’Oréal True Match Super-Blendable Blushon the apples of the cheeks.

The 10-Minute Face

1 Minute: Highlighter. We used Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Concealer to highlight the brow bones and cheekbones. 1 Minute: Mascara. We added Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara to the bottom lashes. 1 Minute: Lipstick. A swipe of Urban Decay Vice in Naked-Vicefinished off our 10-minute face.   How many minutes did you spend doing your makeup this morning? Tell us in the comments below!
