5 Minute Beauty RoutineSlept through the alarm? Last minute lunch date? Feeling too lazy to go through your usual beauty routine? At one time or another, we all have those moments where we need to look our best, without having the time for a full on makeup application. We’re here to help.

With just five minutes and five products, you can present a face that is fresh and polished and ready to face the world.

1)    Start by creating a fresh, glowing complexion with the help of our DD cream dermatologists' dream bb cream broad spectrum spf 30. This self-adjusting color correcting cream gives mineral-based SPF 30 protection while enhancing your skin tone. It also offers 15 skin-pleasing benefits including hydrating, mattifying and brightening skin while soothing blemishes and reducing redness.

2)    Now that you have the basics covered, add a pop of color to your face with blush.  Using a brush, sweep the color in a circular motion over the apples of your cheeks, then highlight and contour your face by sweeping the blush outwards towards your ears just under (not on) the cheekbones.

3)    You may not have time to play with eye shadow today, but you can open up and highlight the eyes by carefully curling your lashes with an eyelash curler. Hold the open curler in front of the upper lashes and gently clamp near the roots. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds. Repeat on the other eye.

4)    Once your lashes are curled, add a coat of mascara to define your eyes. A coat of brown would be perfect for this low-key look, or add a splash of color by using a blue or green tinted mascara. If your day looks to be as hectic as your morning, try a waterproof version to keep things smudge-free.

5)    With a hint of color on the cheeks and some definition for your eyes, all that is left is the lips. Finish with a pretty lip gloss to add some color and shine to your pout. Go with a shade slightly darker than your lips to complete this natural look, and reach for a gloss with some sparkle if you want to kick things up a notch.

That's it! In less than five minutes and with just a handful of products, you're ready to put your best face forward.
