People are often surprised to learn that I am all about a 5-minute makeup look. In my regular everyday life, I typically spend 10 minutes on skin, hair, and makeup every morning. I don’t need more than that to look fresh and awake and ready for the day.
Okay, some days I might need more than that, but we won’t mention those days. 🙂
That’s why I loved Merit‘s approach to a 5 minute morning, as well as the ease and portability of their products. I spent my first 10 years as a mom exclusively doing my makeup in the car, and so I can totally get behind products that fit easily in a makeup bag and give you a fresh and finished look without the use of brushes.
This 5-minute face makeup routine requires only a handful of products:
- Foundation/concealer stick
- Blush stick
- Brow gel
- Lip oil or gloss
- Highlighter stick
Here’s my Five Minute Morning face using these products.

Are you a minimalist or a maximalist (or somewhere in between!) when it comes to makeup? And how much time does it typically take for you to apply it? Let me know in the comments!
