  1. moena

    Lipstick and a one-color wash of eyeshadow.

  2. Evelyn1

    The current beauty balm I’m using Dr. Jart+ water fuse & a swipe of a Chanel lip gloss or Nars gloss pencil.

  3. Veronica

    Concealer under and around the eyes, mascara, and cream blush on the cheeks.  My 2-minute fix on the bus when I hit the ground running to work.  :)

  4. Concealer, mascara and blush… fast fast super fast :)

  5. Jen

    Foundation, mascara, and lipstick

  6. candleashes

    foundation. or tinted moisturizer and concealer. really miss my high school days when the answer would have been lip gloss and mascara, lol

  7. Makaegan

    Definitely tinted moisturizer, powder, mascara and a tinted brow gel.

  8. kristine

    Some pinkish nude gloss/lipstick, mascara, some powder foundation and blush! all really fast haha

  9. Hi this impossible to makeup in two minutes.Please let me know how it possible?@

  10. origami

    A little under eye brightener, some concealer for any pigmented spots, and Benefit’s Dandelion blush/highlighter. Depending on how fast I was working I might throw in a little UD Primer potion in Sin.

  11. Wet n’ Wild Brulee under my eyes as concealer, Revlon Pink in the Afternoon on my lips, and the browbone shade in the Wet n Wild Walking on Eggshells trio on my lid if I had time.

  12. mini0001

    What are your favourite brow products to fill in your brows? I have the same hair and skin tone as you and I find it really difficult to find a brow pencil that is dark enough and yet black just looks wrong! Please give me some suggestions!

  13. Katrina

    curl my lashes, mascara, and lip tint…

  14. xamyx

    This isn’t actually too far from my reality, LOL. I just throw on a TM with SPF, MF with SPF, tinted lipbalm, mascara, and a swipe of a something from a neutral palette (usually *random*). If I have an extra 30 seconds, I’ll fill in my brows. Two minutes is actually quite a bit of time; I *rarely* need more than 10 minutes for a “complete” look. I’ve gotten used this routine, as I’m not a morning person, and I have no major skin issues (anymore). That being said, on the rare occasion I dress up, I like to have a full hour (a serious luxury with a 5 year old). I worked at a bank for 3 years, where makeup was expected to be minimal, and I typically had only 30 minutes to shower, dress, and put on makeup, so I got used to doing it quickly.

  15. StephanieT

    Fill in brows! Eyeliner mascara!

  16. Alison Cole

    Tinted moisturiser, liner and mascara. Then brow pencil in the bathroom/car/whatever. 

  17. hwendy

    brow + eyeliner

  18. Quinctia

    I’m always running behind, so I’ve managed to be able to do my full face in around ten minutes or less.  If I had two, I’m positive I could manage to apply BB cream, a little face powder, and an UD 24/7 Shadow Stick.  (In a color like Sin, that makes a decent standalone on the eyes.)

  19. mightyclassy07

    Foundation and Blush.  Without blush, I tend to look kinda dead.  Also mascara if I have the time.

  20. abaran

    For me it would be mascara and concealer!

  21. Adele

    I wouldn’t! I’m perfectly fine going out with a naked face and I don’t personally enjoy tossing on simple and boring makeup — it’s a full face of color and glitter or nothing!
    I suppose if I was forced to, I’d put on tinted moisturizer, black eyeliner, and black mascara.

  22. Laurence.

    Foundation,blush and mascara !

  23. Concealer and mascara!

  24. martina14890

    concealer and mascara. and if i have a few seconds left, something on the cheeks, a blusher or a bronzer (depends on the season)

  25. zainab

    Mascara, or, failing that, eyeliner. It’s pretty rare that I wear ‘full’ makeup, but I look half dead without mascara. 

  26. Margot

    I would do my brows, as they definitely make a big change to my face and make me look more awake, and I would probably apply a little blush and some lip balm! 

  27. Nicole

    That’s simple: foundation, mascara and a lip gloss.

  28. ashtraygirl6

    under-eye concealer and mascara

  29. AmyHe

    Lol, I wouldn’t apply anything at all xD but if I had to pick something then use a lipstick as a lip and cheek stain.

  30. bdncr

    a bit of contour powder or bonzer and mascara

  31. Amanda

    I’d go with a pressed powder foundation, mascara, and a bit of lip gloss.

  32. sonnyc

    My Clinique BB cream and mascara.

  33. I’d slap on some Shiseido SPF 55 sunscreen mixed with a tiny bit of tinted moisturizer or foundation, then fill in my brows. Brows are super important! A few days ago, I did a makeover/lesson on my friend who never wears makeup, and though she has decent brows, when I filled them in, she was over the moon about how different and better she looked. So let that be a lesson to  you everyone! :)  

  34. I would definitely add some foundation or concealer, and a blush or bronzer. I feel like I need those things to make me look “alive.” Lol!

  35. GlamorPuss

    Mascara, use a pink or coral lipstick for lips and cheeks and then quickly powder my t-zone.  Done!

  36. Por

    I would curl my lashes, apply concealer under eyes, and then apply mascara. I think looking awake makes me feel better about my day. =D

  37. greensocksrocks

    concealer and blush!!

  38. madeange

    OMG, two minutes??? The horror. DOn’t we all hate those days where the snooze button gets the best of you? Since I have acne scars and uneven skintone I’d use those precious two minutes to apply either of my two of precious MUFE Duo Mat or MAC Studio Fix powder, blush and mascara. Lipgloss as I run out the door!

  39. Oohh this is a fun question!  I would do my eyebrows which I wouldn’t leave the house without doing (the meds I take have made them sparse), put on some tinted moisturizer and if I still had the time, a colourless lip balm.  I wouldn’t put on mascara.  Weirdly enough, I do not like my eyes with just mascara as I think it makes me look tired and my eyes look smaller.

  40. Mariella

    Concealer, tinted lip balm and blush.

  41. Tiffany

    Concealer and blush!

  42. MFAcct

    Black pencil eyeliner and a neutral lipstick or gloss.

  43. Fill in my brows! That’s really the only thing I HAVE to do. If I have acne then I want to cover it up, but otherwise I’m just fine with my bare face!

  44. Kate08

    Foundation and curl my lashes!

  45. Christina

    conceal undereye circles, curl my lashes and apply mascara! I may not look good but at least I look awake!

  46. summerblue

    2 coats of mascara & buff in (after moisturizer) either LG’s Balance & Brighten or BN’s Banana powder.  If I had an extra minute I’d go for blushes, brows & lipgloss.

  47. Kristen J

    I often only have two minutes (it’s hard getting up at 4… Somehow 4:30 is easier :S). So I will usually do foundation, cheek color and either just curl my lashes or, if I have an extra 30 seconds, curl and apply mascara. 

  48. Kimmie T

    I am not going to lie! If I only had 2 minutes I guess I will be late! The least amount of make up that I wear is liquid eyeliner, mascara, fill in my brows, and some blush and chapstick. Thats it.

  49. Fitrah

    a cream eyeshadow, if i really wanted to wear something. but honestly, if i only have two minutes, i’d more likely just go without.

  50. ToxicAngel

    Mascara and lip/cheek tint

  51. Charlene

    I would use tinted moisturizer, mascara, and lip gloss and be out the door…

  52. LiisMitt

    Definitely some mascara! 

  53. PriscilaFernandes

    concealer, cream blush (for the cheeks and lips) and mascara.

  54. Foundation, blush and mascara ( I could probably squeeze in eyliner, but let’s not exaggerate)

  55. Anna

    I often do have 2 minutes only! Sunscreen, tinted moisturizer, concealer, blush, fill in brows, mascara.

  56. PinkLadyDaria

    Concealer, lipstick, mascara

  57. Liz

    blush, mascara, lipgloss or balm

  58. puttyrocks12345

    I would just be fine with the naked 1 palette, I would do a nice simple look then instead of the primer potion in original i would use eden as my concealer. But only if i had naked 1 always wanted it but too pricey :'(

  59. Wenz

    Im not even gonna lie thats probably how long I take to do my brows alone!!!! LOL!! But if I could I must fill in brows & concealer (under eyes & acne scarring) & a quick swirl of power to set.

  60. eltscott

    Concealer, powder, mascara, brow gel, and lip color. 

  61. mglawica

    BB cream, bronzer, mascara, and chapstick/gloss.

  62. Pinkpuff

    I would fill in my brows, use some spot concealer, and curl my lashes.

  63. Kafka

    1 minute= red lipstick, 2 minutes=red lipstick & sunscreen, 3 minutes=red lipstick, sunscreen and fill in my brows. What can I say, my priorities are skewed.

  64. nicsviolet

    I’m always watching the clock when getting ready and I know it often takes about 2 minutes to get my mascara on.. my lashes are blonde so that’s what I’d go for.  And if I had some really good mascara that I didn’t need to fiddle with for 2 minutes, then I’d try for a little powder where I have redness and blush.

  65. Curl lashes, mascara, cream blush and lipstick.

  66. Kastehelmi

    Fill in my brows and eyeliner. Then I apply lipstick on the go!
