It doesn’t matter if you are a stay-at-home mom or a working mom or both…Life with kids is hectic! So we bid goodbye to luxury half hour hair do’s and slow makeup routines and bring in the quick fix makeup routines.

When we are going for the quick fix, we might as well make it count, right, ladies! Here is a quick 5-minute makeup routine that you can fall back on any day!

Primer with SPF

A primer is a face cream to help the makeup last longer. It smoothes out your face, fills in wrinkles and gives the makeup a good base to start with. Since there aren’t more than 5 minutes to this routine, use a Primer with SPF to tackle both smoothening and prepping of your face plus an SPF of at least 15. (P.S-If you prefer a primer that doesn’t have SPF, then go straight to a BB cream that does. Else you can apply a primer and move to a compact powder.) Buy here

Apply a tinted BB cream

A BB cream will give you a slight tint of colour but not the full on coverage of a foundation for a more natural look. Find a BB cream that matches your skin tone and use a beauty blender (makeup sponge) for a nice even coverage. If you are using a compact powder than you need not really apply a BB cream. Buy here

Concealer

A concealer is meant to conceal any uneven skin tone or any discolouration. It is like the magic makeup eraser that every makeup pro will use.

If you apply concealer, apply it alone under your eyes and don’t over apply any other product other than the final set of powder lightly. Apply the concealer in dots to your dark circles and anywhere you have a blemish etc.  and blend with your ring finger in light dabbing motions. All brands offer concealers but for tired or mature skin which tends to be dry under the eyes, opt for a liquid base concealer. Buy here

Apply a cream eyeshadow

Cream eyeshadows will last longer and with brands from Lakme to Bobbi Brown offering excellent colour choices you can find a few that work for you. It’s an easy application, just a swipe and you got a nice colour above your eyes without spending too much time with a powder and brush routine and no need to blend etc. It’s your quick easy way to brighten those eyes.

Apply smudge proof, waterproof Eye Liner & Mascara 

Eyeliner and Mascara can be used for defining the eye shape and bringing out one of our best features. Opt for a gel liner and a waterproof mascara as these last longer in our hot weather. If you want to experiment with your day look, try a dark brown vs the usual dark black. You may be surprised to find it gives a more subtle and natural look for your daytime makeup. Opt for a long wear mascara that curls too so that you can skip curling your lashes and save more time.

Blush right

Blush is one of the most perk me up makeup tricks you can do to give your face a nice glow. Look for a coral tone as they go well with Indian skin and it’s easy to apply. Just swipe in a long motion from your cheekbone to your hairline and add a little to your chin too. YES! Just a hint to your chin to give a chiselled effect to your face. Buy here

Perfect the pout

Choose a lip colour for your quick day look that will go with your skin tone and match with anything. Think mauves, warmer colours in corals, warm pinks as these suit most Indian skin tones. Always put on a lip balm, then lipstick and liner and use a tissue paper over your lips and dab some finishing powder on top of the tissue. This will help to seal in the lipstick for longer wear. Some lipsticks may be made for long wear but many often are drying for the lips so keep a touch-up lipstick or balm in your purse. Buy here

Finishing Powder

If you have opted for a BB cream, then finish the look with a finishing powder. It is a very fine powder that removes any excess oil and gives your makeup a seal for long wear. Makeup Forever which is available at Sephora has a nice finishing powder. Finishing powders are a makeup artist trick to keep the makeup in place longer and helps to avoid fast touch-ups. Buy here

By using these products which are long lasting and meant for our climate, you can ensure you set your day look in 5 minutes yet make it last for over 12 hours.
