Today I’ve got my foolproof 5-minute makeup routine for y’all! If I’m not testing out beauty products, you can find me in Atlanta at my day job: a nanny! I’m on the go and want quick makeup to keep up with the little ones. The key is to have a bag or box with these essentials—just grab and go and you’ll be ready in no time!

Here are the products and the steps I do, but choose what works for you:

BB or CC Cream – moisturizes, protects, and lightly blur imperfections.

Concealer – necessity for hiding dark circles – I suggest a peachy corrector. Try Bare Minerals, Bobbi Brown, It Cosmetics.

Cream Shadow – look more awake with a satin shadow slightly lighter than your skin tone or try a brown or taupe for those days when you want to look like you put in more effort 😉

Mascara – sometimes just curling the lashes works wonders, but I swear by a coat of mascara on top and bottom lashes.

Cheek/Lip Tint – 2 products in one! I love Stila’s Convertible Color, but try Be a Bombshell’s The One Stick, NARS Multiple, Benetint, Sonia Kashuk.

Lip Crayon – okay, I admit, I will skip the blush if I’m in a hurry, but I’ve gotta have some color on my lips. These require no mirror, no sharpening, and no skill, plus they come in a variety of colors/finishes. Try Revlon, Neutrogena, Jordana

    5 minutes is about all I have time for most days as well. I love BB cream, but blush is not something I use everyday… I probably should though. 🙂

    Love these tips! My must haves are a good concealer, lip gloss, and mascara..I need to try some of these products you mentioned too!

    For me, it’s bronzer, eyeliner, mascara, natural lip liner, blush, concealer, and eyebrow filler as well as a lash curler. I use them on a daily basis except for the mascara, only on weekdays when I go to work or out.
