Maybe you don’t have that much time to primp but, rest assured, you can glam it up in about five minutes or less (and not look like it only took you five minutes or less). Makeup artist Sonia Kashuk, founder of Sonia Kashuk Beauty and a mom of two, shares her best quick tricks.
"A strong lip statement is gorgeous! If you have minimal time, you really don’t have to do anything else," says Kashuk. Swipe on a bright pink or red lipstick, blot, reapply, add a dab of clear gloss in the center of your bottom lip, and you’re good to go.
"Tinted moisturizer is one of my favorite go-to products, because it makes the skin look luminous and radiant with very little fuss," says Kashuk. "Add a little blush, mascara, and lip gloss and you are finished, but not overdone."
- Start by swooping bronzer all over your face. "It enhances skin tone in a flash," says Kashuk. "Top it off with a cream blush on the apples of the cheeks. The two are a great combination."
- Brighten up only-got-five-hours-of-sleep eyes by lining the inner rim with a white eyeliner pencil. "Then curl your lashes, to open up your eyes," says Kashuk. Follow with mascara, applying an extra stroke or two on the outer corner of your upper lashes.
- Lightly dust a shimmery highlighting powder on your neck, shoulders, and cheeks.
- Swipe on lipstick. Done!
