Top tips for your best five-minute-face

A New York minute seems to pass way more quickly than any other minutes, which is why New Yorkers always need to have our five-minute-face ready to go.

For starters, always do the essential cleanse, tone, moisturize routine in the morning. Don’t forget the eye cream and sunblock.

In your daily essentials makeup kit, you should always have:

-Concealer: Laura Mercier, Covergirl, Makeup Forever, and Clinique are all good options

-Powder: Pressed or loose powder to even out complexions

-Mascara: Trish McEvoy, Mac, Covergirl, Benefit, Makeup Forever are some great choices

-Eyeliner: Marc Jacobs, Trish Mc Evoy, Mac, or Victoria’s Secret, are all good choices.
Black or brown for a classic look

-Lip gloss: Dior, Trish McEvoy, Laura Mercier, and Mac are all great for long wear; or else a bright red or hot pink lipstick will wake your face up before you go-go

Finish off the look with some blush to wake up your face. Bonus points for a multitasker such as Nars' The Multiple or Benefit's Benetint that can b used on cheeks, lips,and eyes

Always carrier a highlighter in your bag to lift and brighten under eyes, cheekbones, And the Cupid's bow above the lips.
