The Five-Minute Face
Too tired or time-pressed in the morning to wrestle with a complicated cosmetics routine? Here's how to get an office-ready look in five minutes flat:
Time: 0:00-1:30 With your fingers, apply foundation only where you need it -- to cover red cheeks, a blemish, or even out skin tone on your forehead. Skip this step if your skin looks great! Pat concealer onto undereye circles. Blend well, then dust on loose powder to set.
Time: 1:31-2:45 Apply bone-colored shadow to lids. Line eyes using an eyeliner brush and dark brown shadow.
Time: 2:46-3:30 Sweep on one coat of black mascara.
Time: 3:31-4:15 Apply a rose-toned blush to apples of cheeks.
Time: 4:16-5:00 Slick on a neutral brown or rose cream lipstick right from the tube. You're good to go!
