Start with a Smooth Canvas

Before you even think about makeup, you need a good base. Hydrate your skin with a quality moisturizer, which helps makeup glide on smoothly and stay put throughout the day. Consider products like CeraVe Moisturizing Cream for a budget-friendly yet effective option.

Prime Time

A primer is your best friend for keeping makeup in place and minimizing pores. Apply a small amount to your face, focusing on areas where makeup tends to slide off. Check out the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer for a cult favorite that's trusted by pros.

Foundation Fast Track

For a quick and even application, use a damp makeup sponge to blend foundation. It gives a natural finish and saves time. Try the L'Oréal Infallible 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, which offers long-lasting coverage without feeling heavy.

Conceal and Reveal

Hide those pesky dark circles and blemishes with a concealer that matches your skin tone. Dot it on problem areas and blend with your finger or a brush. The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser is a fan favorite for good reason—it’s quick, effective, and affordable.

Quick Contour

Add some dimension to your face with a bit of contouring. Use a bronzer to define your cheekbones, jawline, and the sides of your nose. The Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer is perfect for a natural, sun-kissed look.

Blush and Highlight

A touch of blush and highlighter brings your face to life. Smile and apply blush to the apples of your cheeks, then swipe highlighter on the high points of your face like your cheekbones and brow bones. NARS Blush in Orgasm and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector are reliable choices.

Eyes on the Prize

For a quick eye look, stick to neutral shades that can be applied with your finger. Sweep a light shade over your lid and a darker shade in the crease. Finish with a swipe of mascara like the Maybelline Lash Sensational for fluttery lashes.

Luscious Lips

A tinted lip balm or gloss is perfect for a quick touch of color. It keeps your lips hydrated and adds a pop of color without the fuss of lipstick. Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm offers a variety of shades to suit any look.

Finishing Touch

Set your makeup with a setting spray to keep it in place all day. The Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray is a go-to for a reason—it ensures your makeup stays flawless from morning to night.
