Even though I will always love a solid two hours to leisurely get my ideal makeup look of the day, sometimes I just don’t have the time! Over the last few months, I have gotten my “hurry up and let’s go!” makeup look down to 7 minutes. It has taken PRACTICE, but it’s definitely worth it. Let’s talk about the products that make it possible.
Quick note: As with all makeup looks, wash and moisturize your face first! And always apply a sunscreen. My current favorite is Black Girl Sunscreen.

I cannot say enough about this foundation. It’s weightless, waterproof, humidity-resistant and can full coverage. And, like it’s name boasts, it is very long-lasting! A little goes a long way and it sets pretty quickly. What more can I even say about this one?
My current shade: 3.02 Medium with Neutral Olive Undertone
This gloss has been a part of my every day look for a while now. It is buildable to medium coverage and completely non-sticky. One noticeable con with this one: it is not long lasting. You will have to reapply a few times throughout the day. However, for this price point and initial shine, I think it’s worth it!
My current favorite shade: Praline
As always, a lot of makeup/skincare/beauty decisions are made through trial and error. If one doesn’t work for you and your skin, try another! Have you tried any of these options from my 7 minute face? And let me know how quickly you can throw a “face on” and get out of the door!
