It was one week ago that I tried to make a 5 minutes makeup challenge with one of my close friends, Kelly. She also did my makeup and it turned out more beautiful than I expected just like I did not expect the pink wig. Here is a recap on what you can learn by watching this makeup live.
When you are in a rush and have only few minutes to do your makeup, swapping certain steps and products with others is the key.
1. Swap brow pencil with brow gel because you just have to brush your brows and not draw them,
2. Swap foundation with a BB cream as it is easier to blend and in general it’s a 3 in one (moisturizer, foundation and sunscreen)
3. Swap powder eye shadow with cream eye shadow, especially those in sticks, they are super easy to apply and blend in a matter of seconds.
Mistakes I did
I used a blue eye shadow for this look because I wanted to bring a different type of makeup than the ones I usually do but what I did not consider was that blue is one of the most difficult color to blend. Hence when you are in a rush please stick to bronzy colors, these are the easiest to blend.
I also skipped primer, I think that even if you are in a rush, primer is essential to make your makeup last longer or look better, especially if you have oily skin.
Steps I skipped
Eye Liner and contouring are steps that require a lot of time for me. So I skipped eyeliner and you might also skip it. Contouring, do I really need to explain? Haha, the contour takes a lot of time to layer and blend that why I skipped it, if you wish you can simple use a bronzer to give some dimension, that’s the simplest way of doing it.
5 minutes to 15 minutes
I usually take 35 minutes to 1 hour and I think I kind of succeeded the 5 minutes makeup challenge despite some flaws. When the five minutes were over I added some concealer to highlight the under eye, changed the lipstick, highlighted quickly and bronzed her face a little too. These additional steps helped achieve a more flawless look. With some practice you can make it too.
