My quick 5 minute face routine!

I never have more than 5 minutes (sometimes even less) to do my face most *read all* of the time. Well blame that on my inborn talents of procrastination and laziness ;)
And this is how i make the most of the 5 minutes :P

Just listing down the products I normally use for normal days and casual outings :)

For my skincare :

  • Moisturize using Lotus Alphamoist/AM Almond lotion.
  • Next, I apply Am under eye gel to keep my dark circles under control.I also use Itone to keep my eyes clear :)
  • Finish with lip balm to prep my dry lips for the lipstick :)

1.Lotus Alphamoist Moisturizer : Reviewed here.
2.Aroma Magic Under Eyegel : One of the best products from Aroma Magic! I have been making repurchases of this tube since 2 years.
3.Maybelline baby lips Lipbalm : Not exactly baby lips but it is the only colorless one I own apart from Lipice lemon.
4.Garnier BB cream: I can't stand foundations. So I like using this one :) Reviewed here.

For makeup:

  • Apply garnier BB cream after the Lotus one soaks in.
  • Apply Mascara the Lakme eyeconic one is awsum ;)
  • Apply the Bourjois Khol and Contour eyepencil in Brun Design.It is a blackened brown shade.Gives a proper definition without being harsh :)
  • Brush a reddish pink/coral pink blush over my cheekbones ( from the high points of my cheeks towards the temples). mMkes my face look less chubby ;)
  • Depending on my mood/occasion I either use a basic pinkish brown lipstick or a brighter shade and blot it down with a tissue :)
