My Daily 5-minute Beauty Routine

five minute beauty routine

I wrote a post back in January last year about my basic beauty routine and I wanted to give you a quick update! This morning it took me 8 minutes from the time I was dressed to walking out the door, and that included a blow-dry.

1 | Neutrogena All-in-One Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes, 25 Count

These are my go-to get ready for bed at night product. Add some moisturizer afterwards and you’ve shaved years off! A beauty expert once told me that for every night that you go to bed with your make-up on, you’re aging your skin significantly.


2 | Christian Dior DiorSkin Airflash Spray Foundation 202 Cameo

A makeup artist who did a make-over on me recently recommended I try Airflash by Cristian Dior for a foundation that is light and yet covers anything and everything. It is an aerosol product you spray onto a makeup brush (this is a good one) and apply to your face. I chose instead to save [quite a] few bucks and went with the Sephora brand. It’s fantastic, and surprisingly quick to apply, even in the 5 minutes I have in the morning.

3 | Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow Waterproof Eye Shadow Pencil – # 6E (Matte Navy Blue) 4g/0.14oz

I use navy blue since it sets off my dark brown eyes best.

4 | NARS Blush – Super Orgasm 4.8g/0.16oz

You need a pretty pinky/beachy blush! I love NARS and have been using this brand of blush in various shades (although this shade is their ultimate best seller!) for over six years.

5 | L’Oreal Voluminous False Lashes Mascara, Black, 0.34 Ounce

I don’t leave the house without false lashes or several coats of this. If you want to splurge, the Chanel – Sublime De Chanel mascara has great reviews online (and this one comes in deep purple!).

There you have it. Throw on some lip balm or gloss and you’re done!


Curious how other moms get out the door each and every morning?

Here you have it!: Jodi from Mom’s Favorite Stuff, Nicole from Momtrends, Kate from The Shopping Mama, Whitney from Mommies With Style, Danielle from Extraordinary Mommy, Melissa from Married My Sugar Daddy, Jo-Lynne from Musings of a Housewife, and Laura fromHollywood Housewife.

    8 minutes? And that INCLUDED your hair? My friend – that is beyond impressive! I was thrilled I finished my makeup in 5 minutes. I think I need lessons from you 🙂
