How to do your makeup in less than 5 minutes

Use multitasking makeup products

(Use multitasking products / Photos courtesty of Benefit , Clinique)

I'm a chronic snoozer but I also refuse to leave my apartment without makeup on. So on weekday mornings, the only choice I have is to apply said makeup at lighting speed. My roommate thinks I'm some sort of wizard, but it's surprisingly easy.

The first step is to make sure your beauty products are well organized. You don't want to be digging through a drawer full of loose products in a time crunch. That skinny eye liner pencil will never reveal itself—trust me.

Next, get into a routine with key products and stick to it everyday. The morning is no time to be experimenting with blue eye shadow or false lashes. Read on for the best time-saving tricks and products.


Use X-in-1 Products

Your cheek and lip color in one bottle, your moisturizer, concealer, foundation, powder and SPF in another. Boom.

When in Doubt: Mascara

If you only leave the house with one product on, let it be mascara. It will instantly make you look more polished. Choose one that's both lengthening and volumizing.

Ensure Good Lighting

I find that when I can't really see what I'm doing, I tend to put on way more makeup than necessary and often make mistakes. Fixing a clown-like blush job or uneven liner is not in your time budget.

    • 10 Kirkland Products You Should Buy at Costco

      In fact, high marks from readers on the quality of Costco's store brands helped the bulk retailer place sixth in Consumer Reports' supermarkets ratings, behind Market Basket, Fareway, Trader Joe's, Publix and, the No. 1 chain, Wegmans. Costco has turned on its head the notion that a store brand is a notch below a national brand by using its coast-to-coast strength to strong-arm suppliers to put quality as well as value into its Kirkland Signature offerings.

    • 'I literally wanted to die': Woman claims she was bitten by hundreds of bed bugs at Atlantis resort

      A Florida woman filed a lawsuit against the Atlantis Paradise Resort in the Bahamas alleging that she woke up covered with crawling bed bugs. The Miami Herald reported Thursday that Cindi Avila was staying in a room at the Royal Towers during a January 2016 vacation at the resort. At the last night of her stay she said she woke up to “hundreds of painful, swollen bites from her forehead to her thighs.” “It was like something out of a horror movie,” she told the Herald. “I pulled up the mattress and I was shocked at what I saw.” Avila said she took pictures and video of the bites and the dozens of tiny insects crawling on the bed skirt.

    • Ronda Rousey's 'ego' one of the reasons for 48-second TKO, says Amanda Nunes

      Amanda Nunes believes Ronda Rousey's "ego" had a major part to play during her 48-second knockout when the duo faced off for the bantamweight title at UFC 207 in Las Vegas on 30 December. Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) longest reigning bantamweight women's champion was making a comeback after over a year on the sidelines following her first career loss against Holly Holm, but her return lasted less than a minute as Nunes punched her out of contention. Rousey, a Judo bronze medal winner at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, is not known for her striking abilities, but still chose to stand toe-to-toe with the Brazilian, who is known for her striking abilities.

    • Did Bella Thorne Just Break The Law By Sharing These Nude Photos?

      On Tuesday, Bella Thorne retweeted a collection of nude photos, posted by anonymous Twitter user @comproimse, that were allegedly of her ex, Gregg Sulkin. There were three pictures: one of half of Sulkin's face, one of a person's chest, and one of a person's penis. Provided the photos are of who the poster says they are, and since they weren't posted by Sulkin himself, it's likely they were posted without his consent. By retweeting the photos, Thorne distributed them to her 6.55 million followers. A lot of the specifics are up in the air, but this news raises an interesting question. Let's say, for a moment, these pictures are of Sulkin and they were posted without his consent. Did Thorne commit

    • For 40 Years, this Christian Family Was Found in The Siberia Wilderness, with a 400 year old Bible, Unaware of World Events

      This post is hosted on the Huffington Post's Contributor platform. Contributors control their own work and post freely to our site. If you need to flag this entry as abusive, send us an email. It was 1978, a helicopter of geologists surveying the wilderness discovered a family of six. Lost deep in the Russian Siberian wilderness, a family was found practicing the Christian religion utilizing a bible untainted from any modern version of the Christian bible. The discovery of this family not only proves the strength of the human spirit, but it underlines the strength of faith. What I find interesting is the similarity in the practices of this family in the wilderness and the early Oneness Pentecostal

    • 'Morbidly obese' woman drops 126 pounds and becomes fitness model

      A woman from Aarhus, Denmark, who was once classified as “morbidly obese” after tipping the scales at 268 pounds, now works as a physical trainer and sportswear model after dropping more than half of the weight in a period of four years. Mathilde Broberg, 22, lost the excess pounds partially by cutting out junk food, exercising avidly and following the “teaspoon diet,” where she measured out her food and ate with a teaspoon to ensure that the portion sizes weren’t larger than the size of a flat-out hand.

    • You Won't Have to Look at Shay Mitchell's Swimsuit Long to Notice This Detail

      Once the temperature dips below a certain degree, we get the urge to travel — preferably to a warm, sunny location, where we can rock a swimsuit instead of a puffed-up parka. Shay Mitchell is likely feeling the same, as the star 'grammed a throwback pic of herself in a Positino, Italy, shower, showing off white shades and a stylish green one-piece. The photo made us feel a tad emotional — oh, how we miss those beach-ready days! — but we still "oohed" and "ahhed" over Shay's sexy swimwear, which included fun cutout details on the back and side. Yet while the weather (especially on the East Coast) isn't exactly appropriate for this type of get-up, the color choice couldn't be more perfect. Considering

    • Top Apple engineer explains why he quit to go work at Tesla

      Earlier this week, Tesla scored a huge coup when it announced the hiring of Chris Lattner, a widely respected Apple engineer who helped spearhead the development of Swift and who also helped oversee Apple's Xcode team. While Apple engineers migrating to Tesla is certainly nothing new, Lattner is arguably the most high-profile employee to leave 1 Infinite Loop to work for Elon Musk. As for his new role, Lattner will begin working at Tesla later this month where he will become Tesla's VP of Autopilot Software. In the wake of Lattner's move to Tesla, there's been a lot of speculation as to what prompted the departure. While one report initially claimed that Lattner was disillusioned by Apple's overbearing culture of secrecy, Latter has since come out and called such claims patently false. Since then, Lattner has taken to more pro-actively explaining why he left Apple, a wise move given that the alternative would be to simply let speculation build upon itself, likely leading to misleading characterizations about his time at Apple. Speaking to MacRumors , Lattner explained that he was drawn to Tesla by the opportunity to work on important and challenging engineering problems. What's more, Lattner articulated that he's also excited about the prospect of working on something new after more than a decade of focusing on developer tools exclusively. "I've been writing code for more than 30 years, and 16 of those years have been in the developer tools space," Lattner said. "I love it, but I am ready to move on to something else. Autopilot is clearly incredibly important to the world because of its ability to save people's lives (and increase convenience). It is also a very, very hard technology problem and my experience building large scale software and team building is useful. Of course, I’ve also been a huge Tesla fan for some time." Notably, Lattner wasn't the only big Apple departure to make headlines over the past few days. Earlier in the week, word surfaced that Tesla hired Matt Casebolt, a mechanical engineer at Apple who helped work on the MacBook Air, the Mac Pro, and the recently released MacBook Pro with the TouchBar. For those interested in more of the backstory surrounding Lattner's decision to work for Tesla, make sure to check out his recent appearance on this week's episode of the ATP podcast .
