Makeup does not require hours to apply. Most professionals tell you: If you can’t do it quickly, don’t bother. The idea is to enhance, not mask- so a light touch with the correct products can make even the most naturally maquillaged face look finished and pretty.
The Three-Minute Special: A Minimalist Approach
Say you’ve overslept. Or you have errands to run. You’re just left the gym and are meeting a friend for coffee. In other words, you do not need a full makeup job, but you want to look presentable and finished. This makeup is geared to get you up and out in three minutes flat.
- Apply moisturizer, sunscreen and concealer.
- Even out skin with a light touch of foundation (here’s where a cream-to-powder compact foundation comes in handy).
- Apply mascara, two coats if you have time.
- Use a sheer lipstick, stain, or tinted gloss.
