The 5 Minute Face

Carmindy, the makeup artist from What Not to Wear, has a book out called 'The five-minute face' which is her gift to women who are intimidated by the hoopla behind cosmetics. While I am a crazy makeup junkie- I do think 'putting your face on' in 5 min or less sounds perfect those weekday mornings before work. And there is no such things as too many makeup tips!

Here is her 5 min breakdown. [via the Today Show]

00:00-1:00 Smooth on foundation or tinted moisturizer

Pat concealer under your eyes with your ring finger

01:20-01:55 Spot conceal any redness from tiny veins or breakouts

01:55-02:15 Use powder to set your makeup

02:15-02:45 Sweep on highlighter

02:45-03:05 Apply blush

03:05-04:05 Line your lash line

04:05-04:50 Brush on mascara

04:50-05:00 Slick on Lip color

Dude, I am so makeup-lametarded that this would take me an hour. Thank God I'm a natural beauty. Hardy har har!
