5 Minute Makeup For The Busy Gal - Honestly Hannah

5 Minute Makeup For The Busy Gal

five-minute-makeup-look

We all have those days that we just don't have enough time to spend more than 5 minutes on our makeup. While I love to have fun with my makeup, I also really like makeup looks that I can do in no time at all! Let's be honest, if you're in college, those extra 20 minutes of sleep make a huge difference. If you have to get up to go to work every morning, yes, those extra 20 minutes of sleep STILL make a difference. I've finally got down a makeup look that takes 5 minutes (or less!) that you can do on those mornings that you want to look put together, but don't have time to spend forever doing your makeup. 



Step 1: BB Cream

For the longest time, I never used BB cream. Finally, I've come to my senses and realize the true beauty of a good BB cream. They're perfect for so many looks, especially in the summer time and those days that you just don't have enough time to deal with a heavy foundation. When I went off to college last year, I quickly realized that an elaborate everyday makeup routine was not ideal. I love doing makeup, so I didn't mind spending extra time doing it. The issue was, I didn't have time. I wanted those 20 extra minutes of sleep! BB cream is the easiest way to quickly even out your skin ton in the morning without caking a bunch of products onto your face. I love this one by Maybelline because it's super light and doesn't break me out. Plus, it contains SPF! I usually apply it with a makeup brush, but if I'm really in a rush a just use my fingers to work it quickly into my skin.  

Step 2: Concealer

Concealer under my eyes is always a must for me. If you have spots on your face to conceal as well, you can do that at this time also. Usually when I'm in a rush I just let me BB cream lightly cover my imperfections and just add concealer under my eyes in a "v" shape. Applying your concealer in a v shape will lift your features and highlight your face all in one step. Sometimes I'll also apply this concealer down the bridge of my nose and on my chin for a bit of extra highlighting.

Step 3: Powder

You can skip this step if you so choose, but I always apply powder just because I feel like it makes my makeup last longer. It just takes a second and really does make a difference! Tarte has an amazing powder, which I use everyday. I just quickly press it into my skin with this brush and I'm good to go with powder. 

Step 5: Blush/bronzer

One of my favorite tips for quick makeup is using a blush that double as a bronzer or a bronzer that doubles as a blush. This one by Milani is amazing because I can apply it all over my cheeks and it creates a flushed look while still adding a bit of bronze to my fair skin. Another awesome thing about this product is that is has a bit of shimmer in it. There's no chunks of glitter, just a hint of shimmer to add some glow to your skin!

Step 6: Mascara

Mascara is a really important step in minimal makeup looks because it brings attention to your eyes and makes you look awake when you might actually be in a complete fog! I love this mascara from L'Oreal because it's the absolute blackest mascara I've ever used. It adds so much length and volume to your lashes without looking clumpy. 

Step 7: Lips!

I love to apply my NYX Butter Gloss because it's the perfect pop of color and shine on the lips. If I don't feel like using a lipgloss, I'll use a tinted lip balm to quickly add some moisture to my lips before heading out the door.

  10. Ohhh yes I can never skip the concealer step - forever trying to cover my lack of sleep! And powder is a must for me too, it sets my make up properly and stops me from getting greasy by 8.03am!
