What look do you go for when you have only 5 minutes to do your makeup?


Quick 5 Minute Makeup

Quick 5 Minute Makeup – What I wore for the Colorbar Bloggers Meet


[note color=”#FFE4C4″]I always go for a deep lip with a simple eye when I am pressed for time. A statement lip is much quicker than a statement eye and its something I personally prefer too. I just use Mascara on the lashes, maybe black liner and go for a fuchsia/berry/red lip color. A few dabs of concealer on the under eye, a little bit of foundation/Tinted Moisturizer to cover up my blemishes and blush (if I have some time left!). This look always works for me!

    Kajal, tinted lip balm, compact powder (in order of importance) and maybe tinted moisturizer if I have the time !

    I run for my BB Cream or light mousse foundation (Lakme Mattreal is excellent) and follow it up with kajal, mascara and a nice dark lip color.

    Just liner and lipstick/lip gloss. I love the magenta lip on you…this lipstick looks way darker/deeper on me, though 🙁

    You are looking a sweet doll here 🙂 I always go for eyeliner as it stays on much longer than lipstick and it doesn’t take much time to apply and yeah a little lip color if I have time 🙂

      Hi Samar, this is what works for me since I take my pictures on my own, the lighting works best for me at this angle.

        but its a sheer coverage one na Ankita… I want a foundation with more coverage !

        • Corallista
          September 4, 2012 / 12:11 pm

          Its Sheer to Medium coverage, even the Lotus one has similar coverage. You can try Revlon Colorstay, it has better coverage and works for oily skin though I haven’t tried it personally.

            Its not got very heavy coverage so it won’t conceal them fully, should cover up some spots but doesn’t conceal redness.

    Compact, kajal, liner and lipstick. Is ponds TM still available? I am also looking for a good TM, plz suggest something Ankita!

      I don’t think Ponds TM is still available. I haven’t tried any high end brand TMs and among drugstore there is only Maybelline BB cream which I like. You could just for a sheer foundation or go for the Maybelline BB cream!
