7 Steps to a Flawless Face in Just 5 Minutes


When you oversleep, the first thing you may think about is how to do your makeup as quickly as possible, but still look great. In my opinion, every lady must know a 5-minute face plan for those busy days when 5 minutes really is all that she has. Those busy women with husbands, kids and jobs understand this better. So if you want to look good when you don’t have time to perfect your makeup, read on and find out 7 main steps to a flawless face in just 5 minutes.

1. BB Cream

A flawless complexion is something that makes the 5-minute face oh-so flawless. I don’t recommend applying foundation, because BB Cream is a beauty product that will give you more than just one benefit. It acts as a base and helps your skin to be flawless at the same time. You can even use a BB Cream instead of your moisturizer or base.

2. Powder

After applying BB Cream, you need to set it with a powder. If you use a loose powder, you will apply it really quickly. Using powder will help your makeup stay much longer. Moreover, it will keep that annoying shine away and give you a perfect matte finish. If you don’t like to use a loose powder, you can opt for a pressed powder.

3. Blush

I’m a pale skinned blonde and good blush is a must for me. However, if I’m doing a flawless 5-minute face, I certainly don’t have enough time for excellent blush. So I just dip the brush into blush and apply it onto the apples of my cheeks. This gives me a wonderful pinch of color and what’s great is that it takes a few seconds to apply my blush.

4. Eyeliner

I’m a big fan of liquid eyeliners and wear them almost every day. But when I’m in a rush, it’s obvious that I don’t have time for a liquid eyeliner. So I use a twistable eyeliner, which I apply very quickly. Really, when you use a twistable eyeliner, you don’t need to sharpen it. Just roll up and quickly apply.

5. Mascara

Usually I apply four coats of mascara, but when I’m on a time crunch and have only five minutes for makeup, I opt for two coats of mascara. I usually apply the first coat to the top of my eyelashes and the second to the underside of the top eyelashes to get the most from those two coats. Go slowly and wiggle the wand back and forth and you will save time on applying four coats of mascara but still achieve those long and luscious eyelashes.

6. Lip liner

Perhaps, you skip this step when you don’t have enough time for makeup, but it is still highly recommended, especially if you don’t have full and beautifully shaped lips. Take a few seconds to line your lips and they will be full and really pretty.

7. Lipstick

Finally, lipstick, how can we forget about it? Every lady should wear lipstick. I personally never feel fully dressed without my lipstick. A nude lipstick is perhaps the best option when you’re going for a flawless 5-minute face, since you don’t need to apply with a careful hand.
