The five-minute makeup routine you need to try

Time is a precious thing. Unfortunately, most of us never seem to have enough of it. School, work and family commitments often make it difficult to find the time for something as simple as putting on makeup. Thankfully, there are short cuts you can employ to make making up more efficient.
The following tutorial will teach you how to apply everything from base makeup to lipstick in just five minutes. Choosing the proper products is the first step. Full coverage moisturizer, unlike foundation, applies more evenly and effortlessly than regular foundation because of its formula. Opting out of a complicated eye makeup look will also save you time.

Instructions
1. Pat and press pore minimizing primer into your skin with your hands.
2. Apply full coverage moisturizer to your face with a foundation brush. Blend the product into your skin in gentle, downward strokes.
3. Cover dark circles or imperfections with concealer, and blend it in with the foundation brush.
4. Instead of using eyelid primer, sweep the foundation brush over your eye area as well. The residual concealer will mask any discoloration.
5. Set your base makeup with pressed powder. Use a fluffy powder brush for this step. The fluffier the brush, the lighter the product layer will be.
6. Restore lost dimension to the forehead, cheekbones, nose and chin by brushing bronzer onto the skin with a tapered cheek brush.
7. Add a pop of color to the cheeks by swirling raspberry blush on them with a fluffy cheek brush.
8. To highlight your cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin, apply white gold highlighter with the same brush. For a natural look, use a patting motion as this will distribute less product.
9. Quickly fill in your brows using brow powder and an angled brow brush.
10. Brush the brow hairs into place with a spoolie.
11. Apply charcoal brown eye shadow to the crease of your eye as well as the outer corner with a fluffy blending brush. This will naturally define your eyes.
12. Apply one or two coats of mascara to both the upper and lower lashes.
13. Complete your makeup by applying rosy-mauve matte lipstick.
14. Set your face and eliminate any powdery residue by spritzing your skin with setting spray.
