Cheat Sheet: How to Get the Most Out of Your 45-Minute Makeup Time



Relax. More time means you can add layers to your look. Include these added steps to your daily 15-minute routine:

1. Exfoliate with a gentle scrub before makeup. This plumps your skin and everything will look better.

2. Emphasize the dimensions of your face. Contour below your cheekbones and down the nose line (from the start of the brows down the nostrils).

3. Use three shades of eye makeup: Darker on the crease, lighter on the center, and a hint of sheen for the inner corners and brow bone.

4. Smudge your eyeliner with a soft eyeliner brush then layer it with liquid black eyeliner.

5. Define your lips with a nude lipliner and as a base for longer lasting lip color.
