Five Minute Face

by Chia Yulo March 06, 2015


I have a low maintenance approach to beauty generally because I don't like having that much on my face, but really because I sleep in and can't be bothered with a long drawn out morning routine. I thought I was good but then I learned that our Purveyor-of-Beauty, The Vain Mama, has this whole thing down to a science AND down to the last second. I decided to try it out and the results were pretty impressive. 


Start with a clean, moisturized face. 

STEP ONE (00:00-01:30)

Apply EMBRYOLISSE Artist Veil all over your face. This works triple time as a tinted moisturizer, concealer and sunblock. I love multitasking products.

STEP TWO (01:30-3:00)

Use one end of the PIXI Super Natural Crayon Combo to tame and shape your brows. With the lighter shade, color your eyelids and blend with your fingers. You can also use this to brighten the corner of your eyes. If you're extra lazy, you can skip this step altogether and just go straight to using the darker shade to line your eyes and smudge. 

STEP THREE (3:00-4:00)

Carefully curl lashes with the SHISEIDO Eyelash Curler followed by a few swipes of EYE OF HORUS Mascara. I love this curler.


STEP FOUR (4:00-4:30)

Sweep PIXI Bronzer onto cheekbones, forehead and chin for a little color. Blend well.

 STEP FIVE (4:30-5:00)

Finish with a coat of POP BEAUTY Plump Pout on your lips. 

Voila! A polished and fresh Five Minute Face for those snooze button mornings.


'Til next time..
