Home Beauty News Beauty On-The-Go: 6 Steps to a Work-Ready Face in Under 5 Minutes

Who has time to sit at a vanity and do their makeup? If you’re a modern day girl on-the-go, the truth is, you’re often getting ready in some tight situations – in the car, on the train or even at work! Here are 6 clutch-friendly ways to get you there in less than 5 minutes!

Step 1.  BSB Culmine CC Cream

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!  Keeping your skin hydrated is, by far, the key to keeping a youthful appearance. So while you’re at it, you might as well even-out the appearance of your skin tone in the process. We have a little trick up our sleeves courtesy of Bella Scnheider Beauty, which offers a fantastic CC Cream that hydrates and evens out the skin’s appearance, all  while giving you a super dose of anti-oxidants.

Step 2:  Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick

After your skin drinks up its color-correcting hydration, it’s ready for a dose of foundation. The Bobbi Brown Foundation stick is the quintessential, on-the-go solution to even things out. Just dab a little on the areas that need some love, and rub in with clean fingers or a foundation brush. Throw it in your purse and you’re good to go for quick touch-ups throughout the day.

Step 3:  Le Metier Concealer

Ok we have to admit, we’re just in love everything Le Metier, and the concealer is a gem when you’re dealing with dark under-eye circles.  It glides on like silk and comes in a stick format, so you can’t go wrong applying it. Just dab a bit under the eyes, rub in with your clean fingers or a concealer brush – and voila!  Your peeps will appear as fresh as a daisy.

Step 4:  Le Metier de Beaute True Colour Eye Shadow in Nutmeg

This is the way to instantly brighten your face! While we absolutely adore all of highly pigmented shadows from Le Metier, the Nutmeg shade comes in especially handy because it doubles as an eye shadow and a blush.  And boy does it make the most beautiful blush. You may apply it with a blush brush and start with a little bit (a little goes a long way). The micronized pigments apply as a silky powder, but look as shimmery and gorgeous as a pearl cream.

Step 5:  NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

Almost ready! A quick juj to your lips is easy with the NYX Soft-Matte Lip Cream. No fuss, super silky and lightweight, this creamy matte lip product is like putting silk straight onto your lips. You can’t screw up the application with the doe-foot applicator. Just keep in mind that darker colors will require more attention and control, but with lighter colors, you really don’t even need a mirror! Just pucker up and paint.
