If you’re always pressed for time and just can't spare much to apply your morning makeup, or have a habit of over-sleeping but cant imagine the thought of walking into work without some makeup on your face, this may just be the coolest makeup routine ever a.k.a your new morning bestie.

Of course, you will need to the right tools to perform a full face of makeup in just 3 minutes so next time you're out pick up these goodies and toss them into your new “3 minute makeup bag.”

Step 1: Clean your face with Kaia Naturals Juicy Bamboo facial cloths. These magical clothes contain 8 pure essential oils and they’re soaked in honey and vitamins. They remove dirt, excess sebum, and makeup, even water-proof makeup.

Step 2: Apply IT Cosmetics CC Cream all over your face starting in the center and blending outward. This amazing pre-foundation step will save you a ton of time by creating a fabulous base for your 3 minute makeup. Plus, it covers any blemishes or imperfections, has an SPF 50, and contains an anti-aging, hydrating serum. Blend with your fingertips or a foundation sponge until it's well-absorbed.

Step 3: Apply BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder to the apples of your cheeks and your eyelids using your blush brush. This powder works like a champ for instant blush and eyeshadow. This shimmering powder does a fabulous job of camouflaging uneven skin tone, while adding a touch of color and a touch of shimmer.

Step 4: Apply Urban Decay Perversion mascara. This multi-tasking mascara plumps the lashes as well as lengthens them to create a stunning look with just one good coat. If you have the time and want more, you can apply a second coat, though with this mascara it is usually not necessary.

Step 5: Apply Mary Kay Nourishine lip gloss to add some color and plump up the lips. The long lasting formula stays put and has an awesome applicator so there is no need for a lip liner.

Depending on just how pressed for time you are, you can also add eye liner to shape the eyes, line your lips, or fill in/shape the brows with a pencil or powder. These steps were purposely left out because they are typically the most time consuming and the most costly time-wise when you make a mistake.
