5 Minute Makeup Challenge!

My blog has been seriously lacking in posts lately. Starting today, I'm going to try to create a corresponding blog post to all of my YouTube videos (since I am pretty good at uploading to YouTube every 2 to 4 days). I'm also going to try to link everything via Facebook and Twitter... I'm not very diligent at keeping up with social media and I need to get better! I also want to film my goals update video soon... I've been thinking about it for the last month or so but just haven't gotten around to it. Soon, soon.

Today, I bring you my most recent video... the 5 minute makeup challenge! This was very stressful for me because I love to take my sweet time when I put on my makeup. I'm the type of person who likes to put on a little makeup, then make some tea. Put on a little more, then have a bite to eat. Put on a tiny bit more, then pet Truffle or Lulu (or both). Before I know it, 2 hours have passed by and I'm still not ready! Let's see how I did when I tried to do my makeup in 5 short minutes!

Products used:
- Giorgio Armani Face Fabric (Shade 3.5)
- Urban Decay Primer Potion (Original)
- Giorgio Armani Master Corrector (Shade 2)
- Benefit Brows A Go Go
- Giorgio Armani Summer Collection 2013 Face & Eye Palette
- Starlooks Infinity Liner (Sculpture)
- Sigma Eyeliner Brush (E05)
- Sigma Eye Shading Brush (E55)
- MAC Pencil Brush (219)
- Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush
- Sigma Large Powder Brush (F30)
- Tweezerman Eyelash Curler
- Starlooks Mascara (Black)
- Too Faced La Crème (Naughty Nude)
- Giorgio Armani Flash Lacquer (Shade 300)

I also put on some sunscreen before filming the challenge (I like to give it some time to absorb). :)

How long does your makeup routine typically take?


  1. hehe I think you did great! :) My routine usually can take 15-20 min...I try to keep it under 10 minutes when it's a work day hehe

    1. thank you!! :) 15-20 minutes is pretty quick. under 10 is incredible!! :)

  2. I think it's a great look! I can't believe how quickly you did your eyeliner - It takes me like a solid minute!
    I would say that it takes me about 15 mins on a weekday, but I only use BB cream on my face - no powder or foundation or anything else. I definitely take the longest on my eyes and I still end up having to correct a bunch of smudges. So imprecise. I'll blame it on the early mornings.
    I might try this challenge, looks like fun!

    1. 15 minutes is pretty impressive!! i think i can squeak by in 20 minutes on a weekday, but i feel rushed. i like to have half an hour just to be safe. if you end up trying this challenge, please let me know how you do!! :)

  3. I thought you did a great job with this challenge, that's so funny about how you put on your makeup, although if I had a bunny or puppy I think I would get distracted with petting them as well :)

    1. thanks!! haha, lulu and truffle are uber distracting. i do my blog posts sitting on the floor so i can be close to truffle. he usually sits next to me but sometimes he will literally run up to me and stab me with his paws to get me to pet him... and of course i do! this is why i'm so behind with blogging (or so i tell myself).
