Make-up In A Hurry

Updated on April 3, 2011

No time for make-up in your morning routine? I intend to prove that it can be fit in. I have compiled a series of different make up routines. The routines include a "No Time" routine that can be done in as little as 2 minutes, a "More Time" routine than can be done in as little as 3 minutes, or the "Business Appropriate" routine that can be done in under 5 minutes.

The routines came to be because women that I work with are always asking me for make-up tips and advice. I am not a professional make-up artist, just a woman who enjoys testing new beauty products and techniques.

Basic make-up supplies to accomplish these routines are a make-up brush, liquid concealer (to match your skin tone), powder bronzer, eye shadow, mascara and lip gloss.

I recommend starting off with a moisturizing skin lotion applied all over the face.

Routine #1 ~ "No Time" ~ Requirements are a make-up brush, powder bronzer, mascara and lip gloss. Apply bronzer (with brush) over your cheek bone. When smiling, start at the ball of your check and brush out to hair line. Also apply a bit of bronzer at the top of your forehead close to your hairline. Bronzer gives your skin a nice healthy glow. Next apply mascara to both top and bottom eyelashes. Finally, apply lip gloss. Lip glosses come in a variety of colors and shines. For the "no time" routine, choose a neutral color with a bit of shine. Toss the lip gloss in your purse for touch ups.

Routine #2 ~ "More Time" ~ Requirements for this routine include all of the above products and liquid concealer. Liquid concealer is a beauty product that evens out your skin tone. If you have never used concealer before, take the time to test out different tones to get one closest to your natural tone. Start applying in little sections at a time. Concealer is meant to even your tones out and when applied properly will not look caked on or obvious. After you have applied the concealer, continue with the steps from Routine #1.

Routine #3 ~ "Business Appropriate" ~ This routine follows the same basic application as Routine #2 with the addition of eye shadow. Eye shadow should be put on before applying mascara. In choosing an eye shadow to go with the Business Appropriate routine, I recommend sticking with neutral shades such as browns. Buy a product that includes 3 or 4 shades of brown. An applicator should be included with the product. Swipe the medium tone of eye shadow across the entire lid. Use just a touch of the darker shade to accent outer corner of eye. Follow up with mascara to both top and bottom eyelashes. Complete the Business Appropriate look with all of the steps in Routine #2.

I have included an actual before and after make over.  The Business Appropriate is a fresh look that appears very natural.
