How To Do Your Make-up In Five Minutes

2 MIN READ • 29th August 2019

In a rush this morning? Celebrity make-up artist, Viorela Coman has revealed her quick and easy beauty routine to help you achieve your desired look in just five minutes.

First things first: base

You want to invest the first two minutes pampering your skin with serum, moisturiser and primer to create a lovely base so that your make-up can last throughout the day. Start with applying a BB cream or foundation, layering it over and buffing it in with a brush for a more finished look.


Use a minute to apply a nice contour to bring your cheekbones out and give a bit of structure to the face and use the same shade in the eye creases. This will bring your eyes out while skipping the whole eyeshadow application. Use mascara for your eyelashes, apply it in a zig-zag motion from the roots up. This step will enhance your eyes and completely transform the look. No wonder mascara is always chosen as the ultimate desert island product! Don’t worry if you smudge the mascara while being in a hurry. Leave the smudge on your skin until it dries out and then simply scrape it off without any traces left, it’s so easy!

Lips and cheeks

Use a semi-matte creamy lipstick which is similar to your natural skin shade. The texture is meant to last a bit longer and this way you can skip contouring you lips and thus, save you time. Dab a bit of the lipstick on the apples of your cheeks to add some colour in instead of powder blusher, which can look a bit too much if you don’t have the time to properly blend it in.

Finishing touch

Set your T-zone with some translucent powder and then spritz a tiny bit of setting spray to keep your make-up in place throughout the day. And just like that, your quick and easy make-up routine is done!

If you’re looking to simplify your skincare routine, you’re not the only one. Millennial women around the world are on the hunt for time-savers when getting ready to put their make-up on.
