This past summer, I graduated from university and settled into my first “big-girl” job. Since I’ve started working, I’ve realized two things…

1) I need to wake up early to make sure I get to my job on time
2) I am DEFINITELY not a morning person – so waking up early to be at work on time is a #struggle

If you are like me and are looking for ways to simplify your morning to make it easier, I’ve created a video to show my very quick makeup routine for the office. This look is SO easy, that it only takes me about five minutes to do in the morning!! This allows me  time to sneak in a couple extra minutes of ZZZ’s, pick out an outfit, or making sure I grab something to eat before heading out the door.

The products that I use in my video are:

  • Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion (Find it here)
  • Instant Age Rewind Concealer from Maybelline (Find it here)
  • CoverGirl Loose Mineral Powder (Find it here)
  • Too Faced Natural Matte Eyeshadow Palette (Find it here)
  • Tarte Gifted™ Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara (Find it here)
  • Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer (Find it here)
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush (Find it here)
  • Custom Enhancer Drops from Cover FX (Find it here)

If you had extra time in the morning, what would you use that time for? Let me know in the comments down below!

  1. You have gorgeous skin!!! And I love that highlighter you used, really does give it the “dewy” look! I work in a nursing home as a PTA so my makeup routine involved concealer, mascara, and eyebrow pencil 🤣

  2. This is great! I only take a few minutes to apply makeup too and these tips are great!!!

  3. I am definitely not a morning person either, so I keep my makeup to a minimum too! I didn’t know that Tarte had so many Amazonian clay products . . . I have some eye shadows from them made from it and love them so much!

  4. I just cleared my makeup storage today and decluttered a bit inorder to do a short makeup routine. Your is really nice and doesn’t take that long.

  5. Love your youtube and you look super cute and pretty in the camera. Congrats to your new journey to the real world. Your 5 mins make up tips are great for anyone who is in the rush especially in the early morning.

  6. I have been working from home in my corporate career and now my own business. So I have been out of the makeup morning routine for a long time. But this is good for when I travel and need to wake up early to go to events.

  7. I have never been a makeup person. After I got older, I now have a makeup routine…powder every day and Burt’s bee lip balm. I love using makeup for special events but not daily.

  8. Beautiful! A simple polished look is always great for an early work day. My morning routine during the week is pretty fast too. I’d much rather jump into work early and save my time for when I’m done working.

  9. Oh I love this, I’m not a morning person either so I had to learn how to do my make up in like 10 minutes. I need those enhancer drops!

  10. I’ve gotten lazy about putting on makeup now that I’m a SAH blogger. I need to get back into taking care to put my best face forward and I’ll have to check out your makeup choices.
