What Makeup Routine to Choose Based on How Much Time You Have to Get Ready

What Makeup Routine to Choose Based on How Much Time You Have to Get Ready

No one’s morning routine is exactly the same because no one’s morning is exactly the same! Whether you take your leisurely time getting ready or you sleep in until the last possible moment determines exactly how much time you have to dedicate to your look every day.

Luckily, there’s a look for every lady, no matter how much time you might be able to devote to getting ready!

These times assume that you’re already fairly experienced with applying makeup. If you’re newer to application, then give yourself a bit more time than is mentioned here. You’re still learning, after all!

Done in a Jiffy (About Two Minutes)

If you really just do not have the time for anything remotely time consuming but still really would feel more comfortable having some sort of makeup on your face, then consider using a quick and simple application of concealer and finishing powder.

Routines will always go better if you have some moisturizer put on first, but some concealers make it so it’s really not that big of a deal that you skip that step.

For example, Fièra’s Luxury Concealer works to hydrate your skin while applied, and it won’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles like some concealers might. This is because Fièra makes products specifically for mature women, so we know what to look for.

Don’t have a concealer or finishing powder that you really love enough to bother with? Try out Fièra’s Beauty Bundle! It includes our highly-rated HD Matte Finishing Powder and our Luxury Concealer all in one convenient package.

It’s good to pick up concealer and finishing powder as they’ll be used in all of our other looks, too.

A Little More For a Little More Time (About Five Minutes)

If you’ve got about five minutes to spare instead of just two, then consider using concealer and finishing powder just like our two minute routine, but, instead of stopping there, add in some mascara and fill in your brows just a bit with some brow powder or a pencil.

It’s amazing what these two product can do for your look! By adding in some mascara, you make your eyes pop. Most women lose fullness in their brows as they age, so filling them slightly will help bring more definition to your face and put more focus on your eyes. Swipe on some lip gloss as you’re running out the door and you’ve got yourself a clean, minimalist look that takes barely any time at all. 

If you’re worried about drawing attention to dark circles under your eyes or using concealer in those areas never seems to work for you, then don’t worry too much. Fièra’s Luxury Concealer won’t settle into those areas, and there’s an amazing concealer application method for mature women!

Full Face for a Full Look (About 20 Minutes)

What if you really have a ton of time to spare one morning and want to do something more elaborate? Then try out this look for the most bang for your time!

To complete this look, you will need:

  • Concealer
  • Moisturizer
  • Finishing Powder
  • Eyelid Primer
  • Eyebrow Pencil
  • Warm-Colored Eyeshadow
  • Eyeliner
  • Mascara
  • Contour 

It may seem like a gargantuan list, but don’t worry! The application order is super simple.

First, apply the moisturizer. Then, apply the concealer and begin to contour any area that you might want to. The most common place to contour is the hollows of your cheeks! Then, finish it up with your finishing powder. Next, apply the eyelid primer and your eyeshadow afterwards. After that, apply the eyeliner and mascara.

There’s a makeup routine for every morning routine, it’s just a matter of finding the perfect balance for you!
