I would love to say the concept of five minute makeup is new, but it isn’t. However, I want to share my personal busy mom five minute makeup routine and what I do to still look SOMEWHAT put together but quickly! Quick is key at this point with an infant and a toddler. This is a mix of clean and lesser clean products. I am trying to do mostly clean but some things I can’t give up!
Busy Mom Five Minute Makeup
First I use a moisturizer with sunscreen. I use this one every morning by Josh Rosenbrook.
Then I use Laura Mercier primer. It’s my favorite primer.
I use Glossier boy brow in brown. It’s my FAVORITE brow gel. I keep coming back to it.
Then I use Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara. It’s a clean mascara and doesn’t clump or flake which is great. It’s not super dramatic with one or two coats so it’s a good day-time mascara but you could add more to make it good for night time.
I LOVE the RMS beauty line of makeup and the un-cover up is my favorite. It’s honestly one of the best concealers I have used. It’s a good creamy consistency but not too creamy.
To give my cheeks a bit of color I use the Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic blush in love glow. This is a great everyday blush.
For bronzer, I use quite a few but I have been gravitating more lately towards the Hourglass Ambient Lighting bronzer in radiant bronze light. Such a good glow without being too much.
On my lips, I use Kari Gran lip whip in peppermint and this is seriously such a hydrating lip balm that still gives your lips some sheen.
So yeah this entire busy mom five minute makeup look takes 5 minutes or less and really helps you feel put together even for school drop off or errands without spending too much time on a full face. Which, lets face it, none of us have time for!
