easy makeup for work tips and tricks  main

Don’t you think that work from home has made all of us take the word ‘effortless’ quite seriously? 

No matter how much sleep you get, it doesn’t seem enough. The cozy bed and the snooze button are also becoming your best friends. And then, obviously, you don’t have enough time to get ready. Don’t worry, you’re not alone!

Therefore, we’ve got a solution for you! 

As the offices are opening up again and if you don't have the time to spare for getting ready, then, knowing a quick and easy makeup routine can work wonders for you. 

We know that perfecting only the makeup base is very time-consuming, let alone other products. But what if we tell you that you can achieve the same look in just 5 minutes? It is actually all about using the right technique and products. 

So, here is a 5-minute makeup routine with some tips and tricks that can get you out of the door on time while still looking polished and effortless. Read on!

Prep Your Skin

Whether you are following this 5-minute makeup routine or you are taking your time, you should always start with a good skincare regime. After all, who wants to start their fresh and natural makeup on stressed-out skin? Not us!

Now, you have to choose the right products according to your skin type first. Then, most importantly, be sure to use a moisturizer. This would not only keep your skin soft and supple but can also help your makeup products to apply more evenly, which would prove to be a time-saving trick.

After that, apply some sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays followed by applying a pore-filling primer on your skin. Also, this is a great time to apply some lip balm as well.

Go Easy On Foundation

Usually, covering the redness, blemishes, or dark spots to even out the skin is the part that takes up most of your time, right? You might have to use concealer, foundation, powder, bronzer, setting spray, and what not!

But if you are looking to get through this step faster, then first, you can cut down on your makeup time by applying your foundation only to areas that need it. 

However, there are several time-saving alternatives you can try to get some coverage. You can get your hands on a BB Cream which can give you sheer and buildable coverage or you can try a CC cream that can help you with redness, hyperpigmentation, blemishes, or dark spots.

Then, if you have 30 seconds to spare, you can use translucent powder to set the product and control shine.

Don’t Forget Your Eyebrows

fill in brows for work makeup

This is often an overlooked step but let us tell you that eyebrows have the power to change your whole makeup look. They are the key to framing that beautiful face of yours, trust us!

If you don’t have the time to shape your eyebrows with a pencil, then go for a tinted brow gel. You just need to swipe the spoolie wand up and outward to shape your arches. This will add fullness to your brows and the product will last all day long!

Give Some Life To Your Eyes!

If you are facing a time crunch, then you don't need to apply any eyeshadow rather you can just go for swiping on some mascara.

Believe us, eyes don’t lie! Applying some mascara can make your eyes pop in just the right way and make you look well-rested. Just make sure that you choose a product that adds volume and length to your eyelashes without being clumpy.

Finish Off With A Bold Lipstick

The final touch to this 5-minute makeup look for work is putting on a quick swipe of lipstick. 

Go with a bold lip shade as it will give you a pulled-together look and no one will even believe that you were a mess five minutes ago! But do ensure, if you’re applying a bright-coloured lip shade, the application should be clean but should not be too sharp as then, it will look kind of pasted on.

Also, you can take a little bit of pink or red lipstick on your finger and dab it on your cheeks for a light blush effect. This will definitely make you look more awake and save you some time!
