One Minute Makeup

Okay I admit I may be vain but barefaced isn't my best look and it's amazing what a big difference just a little bit of makeup makes. Now I've come up with a quick way to avoid being caught with a naked face that I'd like to share with kindred souls. Just four products; I keep mine in a small see through, easy to grab makeup case and one minute of time and we're good to face the world.
1. Stick of cream concealer. ( I use Cover Girl for this purpose) apply under eyes, on eyelids and on any really noticeable discolorations. Blend.
2 A charcoal gray pencil eyeliner. (I like Maybelline's automatic pencil) Starting from the outer corner of the lower lid draw a line along the lash line stopping just after mid eye.
3. Black or dark brown mascara Apply a coat of mascara to top lashes only
4.A creamy lipstick I like Revlon Renewist in Coral Fixation it really brightens the face works well for most complexions. Then put a large dot of that same lipstick on your the outer edge of your cheekbones and blend well.
I timed this and it took me a few seconds under a minute. I'm known to be slow so you may do even better.

Finally someone to speak up for the more mature woman who still likes to look good. May not be able to afford top end but there are a lot of us out here! When in a hurry my favorite is Boots tinted moisturizer (Target.)

Great blog. I'll have to try your morning routine. Here's a great vid I found that has tips for a quick makeup routine.

Chemicals in skincare products will cause your skin to sag in the long run. That because those chemicals don’t belong there and impact your skins elasticity. I would definitely recommend the Face firming serum, from Made from Earth. I stopped using it after 6 months because it naturally improved my owns skins ability to tighten and heal itself. . . I went through a bottle a month for 6 months and that’s it…. I saw a major difference. . .I highly recommend it to anyone who is tired of trying all the different face creams. . .the website is and its called the Vitamin Enhanced Face Firming Serum. .

My suggestion is just a tinted moisturizer and mascara, and gloss, is a great everyday look. Http://

this is an awesome one minute regime, but i'd like to add a step that takes 5 seconds! I recently started using the Luminized Face Primer from Sally Hansen. This smooth primer makes my skin feel like butter and it has a slight pearlescence so my skin glows. A big benefit is that it's paraben-free and Carmindy from "What Not to Wear" helped create it. Love it! One Minute5 Second Makeup!

I confess, I can't apply makeup for only in a minute. But when I read this article, I guess I can do it. Thank you for posting.
