Quick makeup for every day: women of all ages can do their makeup in 10 minutes with these tips!

Let’s face it, there are plenty of full coverage makeup looks out there, from complicated eyeliner to highlights, contouring and everything in between. And while we love a finished makeup look, sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day to perfect our daily makeup routine. It’s sometimes helpful to go back to basics when it comes to makeup application. With the right tips, you can have your makeup looking really beautiful in less than 10 minutes. Discover below what a quick makeup for every day looks like and how you can create an elegant and modern look!

Day make-up – preparing the skin with moisturizer

Day makeup - preparing the skin with moisturizer.

This is the most important step: preparing and taking care of your skin. The skin is the canvas for everything that is applied. So if you have a fresh palette to paint, your makeup routine will be 10 times easier. To keep your skin in tip-top shape, use a cleanser daily, exfoliate two to three times a week, and use a moisturizer in the morning before applying makeup and at night before bed.

You can use your fingers

For a flawless makeup look, you don’t have to invest in a lot of fancy brushes and beauty blenders. Your fingers are great tools for easy application. Using your fingers is much more time-saving than using a brush or sponge that you have to clean later, and your fingers are great for blending cream products. Just make sure to wash them first!

Quick makeup for every day – primer for a natural makeup look.

It’s important to prepare your skin with a primer. It provides an ultra-smooth base and you can easily apply your foundation or concealer (or both) afterwards. It also gives you a super fresh, radiant finish. Choose a primer or tinted moisturizer in a shade that exactly matches your skin tone. If you can’t find your exact shade, blend two shades for a flawless finish.

Now it’s time to brighten your eyes and eliminate dark spots or redness. Use a concealer that you like. Draw a V shape under your eyes – like an inverted triangle – and use a beautyblender to spread the product until you can’t see any hard lines or spots. Remember, blending is key. If you choose to use a makeup sponge as an applicator, make sure it’s damp, not dry. Hold the sponge under lukewarm water for 30 seconds, then gently squeeze it to remove excess water.

Next, you should focus on the eyebrows. They are one of the quickest and most efficient ways to make your eyes pop. Start by brushing your brows upwards. Then take an eyebrow pencil (or eyebrow powder) and fill in your brows with light, short, feathery strokes to give them definition.

Start by curling your lashes with a high-quality eyelash curler. Once you’ve achieved your swing, it’s time for mascara: make your lashes more voluminous and longer with a product. One coat of mascara is all you need for an elegant look – for both upper and lower lashes. Next, trace the upper lash line with a black eyeliner to create the illusion of thicker and darker lashes.

Use white or nude eyeliner for tired eyes.

If you struggle with dark circles or always feel like your eyes look tired and don’t stand out, there’s a simple trick to change that. Use white or nude eyeliner inside the lash line. This will make your eyes appear brighter and bigger while making you look awake. With this simple step, you’ll give your eyes a bright and vibrant look without having to go through the hassle of makeup .

Add a touch of color to the cheeks

Cream colored blush without any shimmer or glitter looks the most natural. It has a similar texture to your skin and is also very sheer. Use a blush brush and apply blush on your cheeks and blend it well. You can use a rosy or cream blush to give your look a more natural tone.

Add some color. The perfect lip color is one of the secret ingredients to a stunning, no-makeup look. Depending on the shade of your blush, there are several options: If your blush is coral or a lighter pink, you can tone it down with a muted lip color or tinted lip balm. Choose a shade that is closest to your natural lip color. You can try shades like rosé and nude to complete your no-makeup look.
