Make up: A quick five minute everyday routine

bnMake up1

I am sharing a low down of my most essential products. I have created this 5 minute face routine for you guys who are running against the clock and trying to get to work on time. It looks like lot of steps but once you get hang of it does not take more than 5 minutes to finish this look.
All these products have been tested and tried and are highly suggested by most makeup artists.
I prepped my face with a very rich under eye cream and moisturizer. One of the makeup artists told me that ethnic skin tones have dry and purplish under dark circles and little bit of color variation by upper lip area. So starting with a good moisturizer is like having a good primer for your face, which also help make look natural. Make sure to scrub your lips, we live in AZ and lips gets very dryand chapped.

The next thing is to correct and conceal the darkness under eyes, and I also use my corrector on my laugh lines to lighten them so they are not as highlighted on my face. For medium skin tones peach shades are best for correcting any skin variations.

You need a yellow undertone foundation. Picking the right color of foundation is a key to looking natural. When you are buying foundation, make sure to first get a sample because foundation oxidizes and changes color on you after 2-3 minutes of application.

The next step is set your makeup with a translucent powder. It gives your face a matte finish and sets your foundation and concealer.

Now we have a blank canvas to start adding color. I fill my brows as it adds definition and balance to my face.

Line your eyes: I have so many different ways to line my eyes, depending how much time I have in the morning. To keep it simple I mostly use pencil but if I am feeling like it is a winged eyeliner kind of a day, then I need a brush which can take at least a minute to apply.

My favorite makeup trick is blush, blush can do so much to lift your mood and can brighten your face.
