I am one of those people who would prefer 15 mins of extra sleep instead of using that time to actually get ready for college. But, then I am also one of those people who always want to look presentable.
You see the scenario is pretty tough, I usually have 5 mins to look awake and somewhat NICE. I have come up with a 5 min routine that works well for me.
Let me start by decoding it, the products you’ll need are:
- eyebrow pencil
- brown or black liner/ gel eyeliner
- BB or CC cream
Start off by applying moisturizer to your freshly washed face, then comes sunscreen (depends whether you are going out in day or night). I usually use Neutrogena- ultra sheer dry sunblock, it works perfectly for my skin by providing me with ample amount of protection plus the formula is super light and sets matte on your face.
I quickly brush my eyebrows and fill in all the bald spots with Maybelline fashion studio cream pencil, I personally believe that good eyebrows make a whole lot of difference as it makes you look awake and put together.
Then I move on to the eyes, I quickly line my eyes with a brown liner and then smudge the edges because it looks more natural that way.For this I use –Maybelline New York Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil – Glazed Toffee, in brown, I am a big fan of brown liner and liners and I firmly believe that this is one of the best formula available in the market plus it lasts for about 6 hours.
Once, I am done with my eyes I quickly apply Sugar cosmetics – goddess of flawless BB cream, this is the best BB cream that I have ever tried and I tried every single BB cream available in the Indian market.It gives my faces a light to medium coverage, evens out my skin and minimizes my pores to a great extent.
Now, I quickly apply my Maybelline dream touch blush shade 07 on the apple of my cheeks. It contains fine shimmer particles that will give your face a subtle glow.
Completing the look by applying a lipstick, my current favorite is Faces Ultime Pro Matte Lip Crayon – Wrapped Up.
So, this is my version of the 5-minute look. If you try this, let me how it works for you.
