A quick makeup routine for stress-free mornings

A long, complicated makeup routine can really throw a dent in your morning, so it’s important to change things up once in a while to make sure you’re making the most of your time.

While it may seem impossible, you can actually shave minutes off your regiment with a few simple tricks, leaving extra time to snooze or grab that much needed coffee on the way to the office. First, remove any impurities or dirt from your face, eyes and neck in one swipe with the deep-cleaning Daily Care Make-Up Removing Wipes by Rilastil. These towelettes are just as cleansing as a traditional face wash and moisturizer, but much simpler.

Look alive with the Wakeup Concealer by Pixi. The fuss-free wand is perfect for hiding dark under-eye circles, covering blemishes or hiding any other flaws. Next, use a kabuki brush to apply the Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Candlelight Softly Illuminating Translucent Pressed Powder. This multi-tasking formula illuminates the complexion and reduces the appearance of imperfections, all while soothing tired skin.

A sweep of the theBalm – Mad Lash Black Mascara is enough to make peepers pop. Finally, apply a multi-purpose blush and balm like smashbox – L.A. Lights Blendable Lip and Cheek Color for a flush of color on both temples and lips.

In order to save time, it’s crucial to make sure brushes are easy to find. Tuck brushes into the GloMinerals gloBrush Roll pockets to keep them organized.

Shayna Murphy is a beauty blogger from Amherst, Massachusetts, who can trace her love of beauty products back to the one afternoon when she convinced her grandmother to buy her lime green nail polish. She enjoys cooking (Indian-style dishes are a specialty!), is a bit of a history buff and collects antique milk vases. Shayna reports on the latest makeup, skincare and fashion trends and will try to convince you on a regular basis that yes, you really should wear sunscreen daily. My favorite beauty product is... - Anything containing sea salt. It's probably the most amazing exfoliant I've ever used and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and smoother than ever. Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
