My Everyday 5 Minute Makeup Routine

my favorite eyeshadow palette

This is my 5 minute makeup routine every single day. If you’re tight for time in the mornings, this makeup video will have you out the door on time every day!

 

My quick morning makeup routine

My mornings are pretty busy with two school drop offs and then straight to work. In between the school drop offs, I fit exercise and my hair and makeup routine, and all of it has to be fairly quick!

I’ve got my 5 minute makeup down to a T, so I wanted to share what I use and how I do it.

    Hey! Where are your gray Jean’s from?

    • Merrick says:

      The brand is DSTLD — I’ve had them for pROBABLY 5 years though, so I don’t think they’re available anymore — so sorry!

    I notice you don’t use undereye cream or makeup in your five-minute routine. Do you feel like you naturally don’t have a problem with dark circles, or does your BB Cream do a good job of taking care of them for you?

    • Merrick says:

      the BB cream has fantastic coverage so I don’t feel like I need it. But I love the Shape Tape concealer from Tarte if you need a good one!

    I’m curious how much time this actually took. I notice some parts were edited out (brows, blending the foundation) and it looks like it was sped up by a few fractions of a second to make it under 5 minutes. Even if this process took closer to 10 minutes, Merrick still looks gorgeous, though!

    • Merrick says:

      I took longer to film than 5 minutes, but when I do it without any distractions and without filming, it truly takes right around 5 minutes everyday!

      • Sharon says:

        Daaamn that’s awesome!!

        Thanks for the clarification!! Now to reassess why my makeup takes me 20 minutes even though I use like 5 products 🙁 ahahaaa

    Love This! What makeup brUshes do you use?

  7. Jules says:

    I never knew you could use setting spray before putting your makeup on! I’ve only tried after and it didn’t work for me. also interesting to me that you do your brows first!

    xo Jules

      The before and after setting spray makes such a difference for me!

      Also the wunderbrow sticks SO much better to clean skin. If I do my bb cream first and then the wunderbrow, it doesn’t last all day. But on clean skin it truly becomes completely waterproof and doesn’t budge a bit.

    Thanks for the video! I love that you do your eyebrows first! i never thought of that… also how much do you like the wunderbrow product? it fills in your brows so nicely!

    • Merrick says:

      I actually LOVE it. I’ve been using it for about 9 months and it’s been fantastic. My only complaint is that it dries out over time. It starts out a very runny consistency and ends up more like a paste after about 2 months.

      Also I do the wunderbrow first because it stays on SO much better on clean skin. If I do my bb cream firsT it sometimes wipes off throughout the day. If you do it first without any makeup, it stays on all. day. long and never budges.

    This video is so helpful! I just got the FLEKK palate and am excited to try it. Do you put any liner or anything on your lower lash line?

  11. […] This MASCARA PRIMER is the secret to long, thick lashes AND no mascara flaking under my eyes by the end of the day. It seriously is a game changer. It goes on white, but mascara covers it all up. I share how I use it, plus my favorite mascara in my 5 MINUTE MAKEUP POST HERE. […]

    Thank you for sharing your daily routine, it was interesting for me. Unfortunately, many brands use a fairly toxic component of their cosmetics, which can seriously harm us. I began to take seriously the choice of tools for makeup, I found a lot of useful things for clean makeup ​here, and I advise you
