My 5-Minute Makeup


In spite of being a professional makeup artist, my personal on-the-go makeup kit is only comprised of:

  1. A concealer (use a peach-toned concealer to cover dark undereye circles. You might need a more yellow-toned concealer to conceal other blemishes)
  2. A Lip & Cheek Color (just put a dab on each cheek, blend in a circular motion and pat the excess onto your lips)
  3. Eyelash Curler (curl at 3 points: very near the lids, in the middle and near the tips)
  4. Lash Mascara (wiggle left to right as you pull it up for a fuller coat)
  5. Eyebrow Mascara (comb in the opposite direction of the hair of the brows and brush back for a fuller coat that also colors under the sparse areas of your brows)
  6. Lip Balm

5 things I use under 5 minutes!

If I had more time, I move on to adding:

  • another shade of cheek color for dimension
  • set with powder
  • a bit of contour
  • eyeliner
