3 Makeup Looks For When You Have To Get Ready in 5

By  | 

Snoozing your alarm about 50 times before you wake up in the morning is directly responsible for you having just 5 minutes to put your makeup on. Sounds familiar? A lot of people would advise you to just wake up a few minutes earlier to get your eyeliner just right, but we all know that’s not going to happen.

If you’re really one of those women who wakes up in the nick of time, there is a way to head to work without looking like a train wreck.

You could put these beauty looks together with your eyes closed, which works out well when you’re barely out of bed, doesn’t it?


Alia Bhatt’s Wide Eye Look

This is a great look for when you know you’re going to walk into work looking hella’ sleepy. You need just a handful of products to recreate it and a major chunk of the work will get done with a strobe cream. Apply concealer on your spots and under your eyes if you have dark circles. Once that’s done, take a tiny bit of strobe cream and blend it all over your face. You could use a tinted strobe cream or a bit of blush on your cheeks to add colour. Once that’s done, brush out your brows with a brow pencil or eyebrow gel, and add some nude kajal to your waterline. The last step is lip balm and you’re done! TBH you could even do this on your way to work.

Deepika Padukone’s Tight Liner

We all know eyeliner takes more than 5 minutes in the morning, unless you’re a pro. So the goal would be to avoid it at all costs. So if you’re not a pro, you could try Deepika’s fresh beauty look. Blend some concealer and a light foundation on your face to make everything look even. Next up would be tight-lining your eyes. That would be using a kohl pencil in the space just below your upper lashes. You could add the same black kajal at the bottom or, if you have another second, use a brown pencil instead. Add some mascara, brush out your brows, and pop on a nude lipstick, voilà!

Sonam Kapoor’s Bright Look

Now I know Namrata Soni has already explained the steps to get this look, but I do it a little differently and it doesn’t involve so many steps. Conceal and blend your favourite foundation on your face and neck, and add a coral blush to your cheeks (you’re not done with the blush, so don’t put it away just yet). Use a gold shimmer in the corner of your eyes to make them look more open and for the rest of your lid, dip your eyeshadow brush in your coral blush and blend it with the gold. You could add a skinny line of kohl on your lid or just use super black mascara. A pink lip to match and you’re done! It’s perfect for when you have a work lunch or any event to attend but don’t have too long to get dressed.
