Covergirl Aqua Smoothers foundation, light blusher, Falsies mascara, Sephora khol liner in Chocolate and I never leave without Chapstick!….If I’m lucky I’ll get to my brows, but they’re pretty thick by themselves.

Crazy, I just got done watching grav3yardgirl’s 5 minute makeup challenge vid on YT! Haha.

My 5 minute face:

– Concealer
– MAC MSF Natural or MUFE Face & Body, whichever is closer and easiest in the moment.
– LOADS of mascara. Currently, I have been using L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes.
– Shape & Fill in brows with MAC Charcoal Brown.
– BLUSH! Seriously, I need color on my face if I’m wearing this little makeup.
– If time remains, I tightline my upper lashline.
– I’m usually running out of the house as I apply a lip product of some sort.

I’ve become a master of the 5 minute face. 😀

Concealer, powder, and mascara are the essentials. Foundation instead of concealer if my skin is acting up. Sometimes I’ll put a bronze shadow on my lid and in my crease and add a touch of blush since I’m so pale. Lip products can always be put on later.

Usually I’m “all or nothing” with makeup. I don’t like to just do it halfway, so if I don’t have at least 15 or 20 minutes I usually won’t bother. Unless I’m having a particularly bad skin day (like now), I’m usually fine with just something to control the oil like Smashbox Anti Shine. But in five minutes, if I had to, I could probably do BB cream, powder, brows, cream eyeshadow, mascara and a lip butter. They’re all pretty quick steps and I could still get a full look out of it.

Concealer on the dark circles/highlight eyes, mascara, cream blush on cheeks, and lip color if I have one on hand.

For me it’s a light reflective concealer under my eyes (Clinique Airbrush concealer), spot concealing (Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage), bright pink blush (Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge – Pale Pink) – I also use it on my lips – and black mascara. This is my fail-safe 5 minute makeup routine 🙂

First of all skin care. I use Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme SPF15 and Multi-Level Moisture Eye Gel Creme. Than a a little bit foundatıon , blush(prefer soft colour like clınıque blushing blush or bourjoıs blush 95 rose, mascara ( Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara )and lip gloss ( smashbox lip enhancing gloss-After glow or Chanel Glossimer in Pampille etc. )…..just five minutes enough to feel good 🙂

My five minute face consists of foundation, blush, concealer, brow pencil, and something on my lips (could be lipstick, gloss, stain, or balm). If that doesn’t take five minutes, I’ll tight-line with black pencil liner and curl my lashes. I put a travel makeup bag in my purse or backpack so if I have time for makeup later, I can put on some eyeshadow, mascara, and/or whatever I think I need.

5 minutes??? That’s it?!! …::: FREAKS OUT :::…

Okay, so if I had only 5 minutes I would do: brows, all in one foundation, powder, neutral eye, blush and gloss. If I had time I’d bronze and a few coats of mascara.

Like you Christine, I’d dig through my make-up bag for the stuff I missed 🙂

Foundation (possibly sheered out with moisturizer if I’m really short on time), a quick coat of mascara, a quick dash of blush, with chapstick in my pocket for the rest of the day.

Usually I have no five-minute face… I have a five-second outfit and then I take my time doing my makeup as usual. Some days, though, I’m just too tired/uninterested to think about it. Those days it’s the Stila Correcting Primer, lip balm, and black eyeliner. That’s it.

I’m exactly the same. Outfits take no time at all, it’s makeup that can fill up 20-30 of my remaining “getting dressed” minutes haha.

Just 5 minutes hahaha? in 5 minutes i can just use a bit of concelear, powder all over my face and lipgloss

Neutrogena Black Brown volumizing mascara on my eyebrows, as well as dark brown NYX or Revlon brow powder and/or Bobbi Brown Brow Pencil in Mohagany. My brows are messed up :(( (only partially recovered from years of messing them up trying to fix the continually eroding shape myself)–if my brows are done I feel comfortable, next comes lipstick/lip tint or chapstick, then if there’s still time a swipe of black pencil eyeliner on the lash line and lower waterline…

Moisturiser,A little concealer and MUFE HD compact powder…a swipe of guerlain rouge g, good to go 🙂

I don’t have a five-minute face, since my skin isn’t the best and I need at least that long for foundation and concealing. I could do foundation, concealer, mascara and blusher in under ten though – that would be my minimal makeup.
