6 Tips For A Flawless Five-Minute Face

Let Your Lips Do the Talking

Do I do a full Geeky Girl Glam slideshow’s worth of party makeup every single day? Heck no. I don’t even wear makeup every day. But when I want to make up and don’t have a lot of time, here is my go-to look for a five minutes or less kind of day. Bold lips are super trendy (I love a deep plum or dark red), and the best way to pull them off in a daytime look is to keep everything else minimal. The entire look consists of tinted moisturizer, mascara, blush, and lipstick, and it took me just over four minutes. You even have time to add in a concealer, shadow, or liner if you wish. Mix and match with any of these tips, and you’ll find that five minutes isn’t as scary as it sounds. ALSO: NEVER forget those sidelong glances.
