This genius makeup hack will give you a complete beauty look under 3 minutes

We’ve all been in this situation before: You missed your 10th alarm on your phone and you’re frantically trying to make yourself presentable for an important meeting scheduled that morning. There isn’t time to draw a precise cat-eye or line your lips carefully for a classic red lip — but you can definitely pull off an effortless look thanks to on-the-go beauty tricks that wouldn’t take up a chunk of your precious time.

Case in point: This 3-minute makeup hack that incorporates only three products from Make Up For Ever — the Artist Lip Blush, Ultra HD Foundation Stick, and Aqua XL Eye Pencil.

This season, the professional artistry brand introduces the Artist Lip Blush, a chubby lip colour that leaves a powdery matte texture without drying out the lips. Weightless and highly blendable, the Artist Lip Blush comes in 10 shades and is inspired by — you guessed it — the hues that you use for your cheeks for a natural looking flush. Here’s how you can create that effortless beauty look under three minutes, with the help of three makeup sticks:

1) LIPS 

Make your lips blush with this one-minute tutorial (watch the video above). Prep your lips before leaving the house with your favourite lip balm, or Make Up For Ever’s Ultra HD Lip Booster. After that, apply the Artist Lip Blush in the colour of your choice all over the lips, then use a fluffy brush (we recommend an eyeshadow blending brush) to gently smudge the lip line. Blend it lightly until no obvious colour lines are visible on the lips.



A glowing complexion is the easiest trick in the book to master — and if you didn’t have time to soak your skin up with a sleeping mask last night, try Make Up For Ever’s Ultra HD Foundation Stick that will even out your skin tone faultlessly. We like that you can swipe it on the face easily without causing a mess. Apply the foundation from the middle of the face outwards in upward strokes to give the features a “lifted” look, then blend it well with a foundation brush or sponge.



Don’t forget to take care of the windows to your soul with a dash of colour to leave them brighter and more wide-eyed. We suggest the Aqua XL Eye Pencil that comes in new shades this season. Waterproof and pigmented, the eye pencil glides on smoothly on the waterline and eyelids, giving you a host of options to experiment from. Line your upper eyelids with a satin blue for a pop of colour, or create a daytime smokey eye with shades of grey (remember to blend!).
