5 Minute Makeup

Updated: Mar 16, 2022

Not all of us can afford the luxury of time for perfect winged eyeliner and a meticulously contoured glow. Luckily, we've developed a 5 minute, 5 step makeup routine to make you look just as stunning! You don't have to spend a lot of time to look gorgeous. Five minutes is all you need!

Before you get started, let's look at the list of must-haves for five minute makeup.

We've decided to use the Jane Iredale line for it's effectiveness, length of time it holds up, the quality ingredients put into them with care, and the added bonus of anti-aging properties. All of her products are 100% vegan, gluten free, and cruelty free as well! Get your five minute kit together and let's go!


  • Tinted Moisturizer

  • Foundation

  • Golden Bronzer

  • Blending Brush

  • Eyeliner

  • Mascara

  • Lip Color

  • Setting Spray

Step One

The first step will be to get a good base on your skin. Depending on which coverage you like, one of these two products will be your best bet.

Sheer Coverage

A good tinted moisturizer can make a big difference. Multi-purpose

items save a great amount of time since you can knock out extra steps.

We recommend the amazing Jane Iredale Dream Tint for beautifully sheer coverage. This water-resistant tinted moisturizer includes lightweight minerals that provide sheer to medium coverage. It also includes SPF 15 UVA/UVB rays, with the added benefit of reducing the look of enlarged pores and fine lines.

Apply the tinted moisturizer with the Jane Iredale Blending Brush that's amazing for both cream and powder based products. You can also use this brush for your blush! It'll cut down on the number of products you have to pull out for your five minute makeup kit while leaving the perfect finish.

Sheer to Medium Coverage

The full Jane Iredale line focuses on hydrating your skin, but this takes it to another level. Liquid Minerals Foundation has a mixture of a hyaluronic serum and tinted beads. The tinted beads are suspended in hyaluronic acid, resulting in hydrated skin with a flawless finish. This pigmented serum also hides some of those fine lines and wrinkles and helps minimize the appearance of pores while smoothing and evening the skin tone. The active ingredients are time released to prevent degrading. In a circular motion, use the blending brush to create that effortless look of perfect skin.

Step Two

This compact knocks out three steps in one. Talk about a time saver! Our pick is the Golden Bronzer in Moonglow. It has four different warm hues, providing the perfect palette for blush,

bronzer, and even eye shadow! Using the blending brush, give your face a quick brush to leave your complexion looking bronzed and radiant. Use the same blending brush to apply the desired blush color in the palette. If you'd like, add a little eyeshadow to give an extra wow factor.

Step Three

Time to add a good eyeliner and a touch of mascara. Jane Iredale's Eye Pencil in Basic Black with Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara is the way to our heart! These two alone can create an eye that really turns heads. Just a little bit of eyeliner goes a long way, so when doing your five minute makeup, you only have to worry about the bottom lid. It will give your eyes an exotic yet natural boost.

Step Four

One of the most important parts of any makeup routine is a good setting spray. Pommisst Hydration Spray is the absolute best! Not only does it set your makeup to give it that lasting fresh look, but it's also antioxidant-rich to hydrate and protect skin while fighting the effects of sun exposure. This special hydration spray is a perfect 2-in-1 when it comes to setting and hydration. It's a must-have for long wear makeup!

Step Five

Finally, it's time to add that pop of color on your lips to really bring out the eyes and compliment your outfit. Jane Iredale has an extensive lip line, offering something for everyone! The line offers a wide array of colors in Lip Drink Tinted Lip Balm to hydrate and soften your lips, Triple Luxe Long Lasting Naturally Moist Lipstick for those who love a good classic lipstick, Hyaluronic Lip Gloss for moisture, Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain for a great 2-in-1, as well as various lip stains like the amazing Lip Fixation for the perfect long wear look without any transference. Picking the right lip color can bring your entire look together to give you that perfect finishing touch.

With this five step system, you'll be ready to go in five minutes flat. Whether it's adding a little makeup for your video call when working from home or going out for drinks with the girls, it's perfect for people on a schedule. This routine will show you that on a scale of one to ten, you can be an elleven! Check out our Makeup Gallery for some of our gorgeous looks!
