When using your favorite makeup products this routine will help get you ready in 5 minutes max.  (This routine is best when you limit the number of products used.)

Usually a routine includes - Foundation, powder, blush, eye shadow, mascara, eyeliner and lipstick or gloss.

This particular routine includes the sheer basics - Blush, Eye  Shadow, Lipstick or Gloss.

For day wear mascara & eyeliner should be considered for an office situation or a business meeting.  The clerk at the grocery store could care less if you are fully made up.  Especially when your kids are with you in the store.

I'm always fully made up. I've been sick the last few days so its been just full coverage foundation, a shimmery glory blush, tinted lip balm and mascara. I almost like the look more than my fully made up face :)

I'm happy without makeup.  I usually have a BB cream on for SPF, and quick add mascara and gloss.  I almost never wear powder, I looooove Meteorites finishing powder, but it does not settle in lines like traditional loose or pressed powder.  It pretty much depends on if I wear cream or powder blush (or a stain) and how made up I want to look.  When I'm sick, forget it...

Even when I'm going out my makeup routine rarely takes longer than 5 minutes.
