My Everyday 5 Minute Makeup Routine

This is my 5 minute makeup routine basically 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

I’ve been doing the same basic five minute makeup routine for years, switching up the products here and there for the season or when I want to try something new. I have it down to a pretty quick science, which means it only takes five minutes for me to do a full face of makeup and get on with my day.

Here are the products I use, and at the bottom of this post I have a video to show how I apply everything!

I do a different lightweight summer makeup during the hot months, and I shared that right here.

 

Here are all the makeup products I use for this look: 

Wunderbrow waterproof Brow Filler, Color: Brunette. This is my number one favorite makeup product that I’ve been using for almost six years. It’s a waterproof eyebrow gel, so it fills in your brows and stays on all day no matter if you’re sweating, going in the pool, or hanging at the beach.

Dime Tinted Wonderscreen SPF 30 – use code MERRICK for 20% off. I have finally latched on to the habit of daily SPF as of the last few years! This one is my current favorite because it gives you a great glow and base under any concealer or foundation, or it’s a great standalone product if you want something a little lighter weight than foundation. It’s very lightweight and not sticky at all, and also doesn’t have a sunscreen smell. Definitely recommend.

MERIT The Minimalist Perfecting Complexion Foundation and Concealer Stick. I use the shades “Bisque” for my face, and “Cream” for under my eyes. These are so lightweight and have such incredible coverage, I’m truly obsessed with this product. Also it’s in the clean beauty category, which is a win!

Hoola Bronzer in the original “Hoola” color. Kristy recommended this to me last year and I immediately got hooked. A little goes a long way so it lasts for ages.

MERIT Flush Balm Cream Blush. I wear the color “Cheeky” in this, and it looks bright, but it goes on so beautifully for a gorgeous flush, and you can do as subtle or as bold as you’d like.

Iconic London Illuminator Liquid Highlighter in the color “Original.” I totally forgot to put this on in the video below, but it’s one of my makeup staples! It gives you the most gorgeous, natural glow. A little tiny drop is great for your whole face, so a bottle lasts for years.

Flekk Cosmetic’s Eyeshadow Palette, Color: FlawlessFlekk Cosmetics recently went out of business after years of being my favorite eye makeup brand ever. But the colors in THIS PALETTE and THIS PALETTE are similar and you could totally get the same effect!

L’Oreal Mascara PrimerI’ve been using this for YEARS and it’s my favorite mascara primer. It makes my lashes long and thick, and keeps any mascara from flaking, drooping, or smearing throughout the day. But it’s not hard to get off at night!

BabeOriginal 4REAL Mascara. I’ve tried a lot of mascaras, and I have a lot that I’ve really loved, but this one is one of my favorites ever. It gives you the most amazing, full, long lashes and stays on all day. My code MERRICK15 works for 15% off!

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick and Liner in the color Pillow Talk original. This is the perfect flushed lip color that’s a little bolder than my natural lips, but keeps my face super neutral and natural. I’ve been wearing this for the last few years and it’s one of my favorite beauty products ever. It’s also super hydrating for your lips and goes on so smoothly!

    This is fantastic! I would love to see how you do your mascara more in detail. thanks!

  3. mel says:

    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!

  4. Kristen says:

    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!

  5. Sharon says:

    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

  6. Emily says:

    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

    • Merrick says:

      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.

  8. Katie says:

    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

  14. Huda says:

    Thanks for sharing your daily routine. Also, big thanks for that video. The video is too much fast but still you have mention the things you used in that video this was the great move. but 1 thing you should also include, and that this is Lipstick. you should add at least one. otherwise, your efforts are great and you are doing a great work. keep sharing useful stuff like this

  15. Becca says:

    Have you tried any thrive causemetics? They are hitting me so hard with ig ads, and i just wondered if you had an opinion on them! I’m especially curious about their eye brightener sticks…

  16. Lauren says:

    I love that sweatshirt. Where is it from?

  17. Sravani says:

    I really fell in love with L’Oreal Mascara Primer. Thank you so much.

  18. Missi says:

    I came here only for the setting spray because you used it in your video. but it’s not even listed.
