It is quite possible at times you may get a call in hurry and due to the lack of time you need to get ready in a hurry. In order to face such situations, it is enough if you follow the simple tips given here, which will hardly take about five minutes or so. 

The primary thing you have to do is to buy all the needy and keep ready for use at any point of time. The things that you have to keep ready with you are scrunchy, facial toner or cleaner, hair brush, cotton balls, powder, foundation, lip color, concealer, mascara and eye shadow or sponge tip app. If you keep all these things ready with you, then you can manage in no time. 

Whenever there is a phone ring and they are expecting you soon this 5-minute make over is enough you to get you going. Remember, even if you are in a hurry, you should never wash your face with the soap as it is very bad for facial tissues. Find your skin toner or cleaner, pull out the skin toner on your face and use cotton balls to swipe out the toner. Most of the people use soap instead of toner when they are in hurry and doing this is not preferable. To get your skin dry very quickly, keep the fan over your face by holding with your hands. 

After this, it is left to your choice whether to moisturize your face or not. It is recommended not to skip moisturizer. If the cosmetic drawer is provided in the bathroom, take out your foundation and start applying. The foundation has to be blended from your forehead to your neck. To avoid the streaky appearance, use fan for few seconds over your face and this will make your skin dry. 

The dark circle spots that appear on your face make you to feel bad and this can be removed by using the concealer that is available in your cosmetic drawer. Open the concealer from your drawer and put small amount on finger tips, cover up the dark circles very gently. Before doing anything on your face ensure that you should not apply gently at the tissue part under your eyes as they are the most fragile and thinnest part and be careful of not making any damage. 

Always use the dimensional eye shadow that is in medium color. A shadow that comes with a sparkle to it, works best whenever you are in hurry. Apply it from your eye lid to your brow with a cosmetic sponge with light strokes. Also apply a little amount at the lower side of the lashes and this will make everything fine. Soon after this, apply mascara to both the lower and upper eye-lashes. 

Take your bronzer/blush and blush brush, do quick brushes over your forehead, nose and cheeks. Use gloss with some sparkle and color to your bottom and top lips. Finally use powder to eliminate and set shine and now you are ready to start.

    Hey nice post thanks for these lovely tips… i work in this media industry n i generally come across these urgent meetings or parties… i have always wondered how to get quick make up done… but you knw my skin is oily and applying foundation makes it even more sticky… i have come across this Maybelline’s Whitestay Uv Compact n it gives me nice glow in minutes… i think its a good alternative to foundation as it takes away oil from my skin

    Well these tips of yours are helpful, glad I have stumbled your blog. But are there any demonstrations perhaps for me to see a clearer picture in my mind?

    I apply eye liner to define my eyes. Then I apply blush on my cheeks and I apply lip gloss to define lips. It takes just 5 minutes if applied carefully.

    Make-up in 5 minutes can be done when you have all the products ready with you in a kit. If you can arrange these in order, you are ready for party-time always.
