Two-minutes makeup routine

The secret of quick makeup is finding your products, understanding what’s making the difference, and what you can skip.

It might take some time for you to find your routine and assemble a quick makeup bag with the products you like, but once you do, you will be able to put on your makeup quickly and flawlessly.

1#: Start with Good Skincare

Although daily makeup shouldn’t be heavy, it can still look bad if your skin is not taken care of. The better your skin looks, the less makeup you will need.

Start with a good skincare routine to maintain the best makeup results. Find the cleanser, toner, and moisturizer that suit your skin type and you won’t have any problems with the makeup again.

2#: Foundation and Concealer

When in a hurry, you should use fail-free formulas like cream or powder. Apply foundation or concealer only on critical points of your face. Hide the redness around the nose, oily parts of the forehead, and chin.

According to Shirley Pinkson, makeup artist and co-founder of the W3ll People, it is best to tap concealer underneath your eyes. That is how you increase circulation and get a well-rested look. 

3#: Bronzer

If you are really in a hurry, this is one of the products you can skip. However, within two minutes, you can make a space to apply just a bit of a bronzer to add life and definition to your face.

4#: Blush

Some women can’t leave the house without a blush, while others prefer a bronzer. The fact is that nice, peachy, or pink creamy blush will give you a healthy-looking makeup finish.

Use your fingers to apply the blush. Apply the product on your fingers first and then on the apples of your cheeks. Make sure to blend it until you get the perfect shade.

5#: Eyebrows

Eyebrows can really change the look of your face. That is why filling them is crucial. And while there are so many different products for brows, gels, pencils, powders – finding the right one is definitely worth it.

Choose a shade that matches your brows, and apply the small amount of product upward to create fullness. These products will also keep the brows in place.

6#: Eyes

Cream eyeshadows are easy to apply with your fingertips. You can only use one shade without even needing any brush to blend them. Shades that are a bit brighter than your skin will make your eyes pop.

When it comes to mascara, you should apply it after the eyeshadow. According to makeup artist Lauren Urasek, you should apply the top side of your lashes first and then add a layer on the underside.

7#: Lips

Depending on how you like to finish off your makeup, you can choose a bold or neutral nude lipstick to put on. Choose long-lasting ones and make sure they won’t dry your lips. For a natural finish, tap the lipstick with your fingertips.

There you have it! A perfect morning makeup was done within two minutes. Hopefully, now you believe that two-minutes makeup is more than possible.
