    • 2 Minutes to Pretty

      "When you only have several minutes, skip the traditional routine of moisturizer, primer, and foundation," says makeup artist Lata Gjonbalaj of Fix Beauty Bar in New York City. "Instead, opt for a tinted moisturizer or a BB cream."

      Here's what you need:

      • Tinted moisturizer/BB cream
      • Eyeshadow (natural shade)
      • Waterproof eyeliner
      • Gloss or sheer lipstick

    • How to Get Party-Ready in Two Minutes

      1. Apply a tinted moisturizer or BB cream all over your face with your fingertip.
      2. Sweep a natural eye shadow shade like taupe or brown all over your lid. Then, line your eyes with a waterproof liner and it will stay on all day.
      3. Dab on some gloss or sheer lipstick; both are more forgiving if you stray outside the lip line.
    • 5 Minutes to Fabulous

      “When you are in a time crunch, using multipurpose products will help cut down the makeup application routine,” says Achelle Dunaway, makeup artist and creative director for e.l.f. Cosmetics.

      Here’s what you need:

      • Concealer
      • Bronzer
      • Brow pencil
      • Matte lipstick
      • Mascara
    • How to Get a Five-Minute Face

      1. First start with a concealer -- just a few dabs on any imperfections and blended in will give you a beautiful natural effect.
      2. Contour your face with a bronzer (dust a little into the hollows of your cheeks) and then use that same bronzer as a neutral eyeshadow.
      3. Fill in your brows with a brow pencil and then use the same pencil as an eyeliner.
      4. Next, grab a matte pink or rose lipstick. Apply a few dots of the lipstick onto your cheeks and blend in, then swipe on lips for a pretty pop of color.
      5. Finally, apply a few coats of mascara to your lashes.

      Here’s what you need:

      • Foundation
      • Concealer
      • Eyeliner

    • How to Master the 10-Minute Face

      1. Blend a little foundation and/or concealer into skin to even out your complexion.
      2. Apply a darker, more dramatic line on the top lash line with an additional wing tip at the end for fun flair. You can also line the lower inner water rim for added nighttime drama.
      3. Use a small duo eye shadow (one with dark and light shades) to create a smoky eye. Use the darker shade in the lid's crease, then use the lighter color to highlight under the brow and along the inner corner of the eye.
      4. With the same highlighting shadow, take your finger and swipe a bit of it on the upper cheekbone for a healthy-looking glow.
      5. Finally, use a skin-tone matching powder all over the face and swipe a colorful gloss or lipstick on the lips to bump up the look…fast!
