Your 5-Minute Beauty Routine

Applying makeup doesn’t have to be a long and expensive process. Check out my top picks for beauty products/makeup that will have you done up in just five minutes, all for under $25 each! Makeup enthusiasts and phobes alike are sure to be down with these product suggestions that will have you looking fierce, fast.

Summer beauty starts with getting skin pampered and hydrated, and the best thing to get your face looking its best is a…facial. Garden Botanika’s Corrective Clearing Face Mask ($18) gives your face a smooth look right from the first application. We all know that first impressions are everything, so make sure a good facial is part of your beauty routine.

This season, bronzers are all the rage, and every woman wants that special glow. Physicians Formula’s Shimmer Strips Custom Bronzer, Blush & Eye Shadow ($11.95) is a complete compact for every aspect of your look. Whether you want to rock a bronzed look on the eyes or cheeks, this palette has you set for a glamorous glow on the go!

To achieve a flawless look, your pout has to be perfect, and a fun shade always attracts a ton of attention. A great pop of color that’s suitable for most skin tones is Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Ultra Lipstick ($22.50) in Watermelon. The color is vibrant and fresh, and will keep your lips nourished while you’re looking glam.

Want to make a simple look pop on a whole new level? I am crazed over Jemma Kidd’s JK In Vogue Perfect Blush Collection ($18 at Target) because it’s a great blend of corals, peaches, fuchsia and a splash of shimmer. Each blush palette holds its own with the color schemes they feature, but our favorite is 5th Avenue because it really makes your cheeks come alive!

We all need to keep our skin moisturized with SPF, but sometimes that awful white residue is less than appealing. Now, the best way to get SPF is with a touch of color like e.l.f.’s Studio Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($3), which comes in a variety of skin shades and is very lightweight. It’s such a necessity for a quick color boost and it helps keep your skin protected.

Want to achieve a simple look on a less glamorous day? Grab a moisturizer that’s also a simple lip balm with a touch of color. Avon’s Slick Tint for Lips ($.99) is great for not being too much, but still showing off your pucker. The lip balm comes in a sheer pink, a deep reddish wine and a rosy pink, all at an amazing price!

Benefit Benetint Lip Balm SPF 15: Fall’s Top Tint

Let’s face it, not everyone is confident enough to pull off fall’s uber-bright, crimson-colored lip trend. For those too timid to go bold but still want to try this glam trend, opt for Benefit Benetint SPF 15 Lip Balm. This rose-tinted lip balm is light and flirty and won’t leave you feeling all lips and nothing else! Blended with vitamin E, sunscreen, and a sweet rose-petal scent, a sweep of this balm gives that seductive whisper of color rather than a shout. -Lindsay Leff

Pearly and Protected


In the heat of summer, it’s hard to protect your lips from drying, and it’s hard to find a great lip gloss with outstanding SPF protection. However, I recently found a great new product called ‘Softlips Lip Balm’ in Pearl that offers both! Not only does it look and feel just like your favorite lip-gloss, it offers SPF-15 protection as well. Perfect to toss in your beach bag this summer!
