My 5 Minute Make Up Routine

5 Minute Makeup Routine

Fun fact: I’m just not a makeup girlie. It was never something I got into. BUT…I still like a little something something. So that’s where my 5 minute makeup comes in. And hopefully you’re catching this at the right time because it’s the Sephora sale. Now through 4/15/2024, you can get up to 20% off (based on your insider status).

The 5 Minute Makeup Routine

Let me back up a little bit. Before you start your 5 minute makeup routine you should definitely do your skincare routine. I have a fairly simple one that I really stick to every day. Having a good skincare routine is SO important, and I’m happy I started taking care of my skin in my mid-20s.

  • Merit Great Skin Glow Serum This product is the real deal for me. I noticed my sister had it, so obviously I used it. I think I purchased it on my phone then and there. I love starting my 5 minute makeup routine with this serum. It gives me the perfect dewy look and a great base for makeup.
  • Drunk Elephant Bronzing Drops I’ve been using these bronzing drops for almost a year now and think they’re the perfect addition to this process. Just mix a few drops in with your moisturizer, and BAM! It gives some bronzed goddess energy without having to fully self tan. I will say it fades as the day goes on, but I guess that’s kind of to be expected?
  • Ilia In Full Micro Tip Eyebrow Pencil I love a good brow. And I love, love, love a good DARK brow. To be completely honest, I don’t LOVE this pencil. But it’s a solid one, and I don’t want it to go to waste. I’m not going to rebuy it, BUT this step will always in my 5 minute makeup routine.
  • Merit Flush Balm Cream Blush In addition to a good brow, I love color on the cheek. I’m so happy I bought this blush because I really do love it. I got the color Persimmon a few months ago and just purchased Stockholm during the sale!
  • Laneige Lip Mask Okay okay, I know this is technically is a sleeping mask, but I love putting this on in the morning to finish off getting ready. I put a little less on than I normally do at night because I know a little goes a long way. I love that this keeps my lips extra hydrated a little bit longer than my lip balm, and it gives such a pretty shine!
