When the going gets tough- but you still want to look put together- and why not? I have always believed in going makeup-free for at least 1-2 days a week. It’s important to let your skin breathe. However, last minute meetings/ sudden arrival of pesky guests/on the spot shopping plans – life is always on the run. But keep calm and put on a little magic to look fresh & awake in just 5 minutes. Yeah! You read right. Every woman deserves a 5 minute makeup regime, so if you don’t have one yet- this one’s for you.

Presenting to you the world’s fastest makeup regime:-


SKIN PREP: 1 minute

Use a concealer to camouflage blemishes and under eye circles. Use concealer only where needed and areas that appear reddish. Blend with your fingers and spread it evenly.

EYES: 1 minute

If you want your eyes to look bigger, use eyeliner on the upper eyelid else use an lighter coloured eye pencil on the lower eye lid. The creamier the product, the quicker your eyes will get done. Try a dark blue, purple, golden brown or a green for an instant spark.
