quick beauty hacks: how to create the perfect 5 min beauty routine
Looking totally put-together doesn’t have to mean spending hours in front of the mirror every morning. For those of us who just don’t have the time for that (or who, let’s be honest, would much rather spend that extra time sleeping in), here are some of the best beauty hacks to help you look gorgeous in five minutes flat.

the best beauty hacks to get ready in record time

The best way to shorten your morning routine is by finding the right time-saving products. You want products that are easy to use and produce the greatest result with the least effort.

Here are some of our picks.

start with a tinted bb or cc cream

A full face of foundation is pretty and everything, but it’s a time investment. Instead, opt for a base of either BB or CC cream. Both products are tinted, which evens out skin tone, and they provide a whole wealth of other skin benefits.

a lovely flush with cream blush

Cream blush is a great way to quickly bring a splash of healthy color to your face. You can even use your fingers to apply it to the apples of your cheeks, giving you a natural, lit-from-within flush. Plus it takes like two seconds.

a great mascara

Mascara is one product that brings your beauty look to the next level in a matter of seconds. One swipe and your will eyes instantly look bigger and more awake. It’s hard not to look and feel gorgeous with dark, fluttery lashes.

brows on lock with brow gel

Well-groomed brows are great for framing your face. Brow gel is a quick and easy way to make sure your brows stay in shape and any unruly hairs know their place. Go with a tinted brow gel if your brows could use a little extra volume.

a lip product that makes you smile

For this simple, five-minute beauty routine, just about any lip color that goes on smoothly and quickly is a home run. For example, tinted chapstick and sheer lip oils are a great choice for a natural hint of color while keeping your lips well hydrated.

But don’t be afraid of color! If you have a favorite bright red or fuschia lipstick, pairing a simple makeup look with a bold lip will totally fool everyone into thinking you spent way more time on your look than you did.

dry shampoo

No time for a shower this morning? If you’re rocking second or third-day hair, a quick spritz of dry shampoo will bring your ‘do back to life. Spraying dry shampoo at your roots and working it through with your fingers will soak up any excess oil, making your hair look clean, fresh, and voluminous.
