5 Minutes Eye Makeup Tips

I have learnt a valuable makeup lesson from Queen talk show a few weeks ago. These makeup tips are useful for working professional women who goes to work early and have little time to makeup unless you wanna wake up two-three hours before work. I not that type of person who can wake up so early lol :P





This look is neutral and suitable for work. Here's a short tutorial on how to create this simple look using items as below:

Eyes

Majolica Majorca Majolook Palette

Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus Mascara

MAC Black Russian Pearlglide Eye Liner


Face

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light Medium

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Triple Fusion

ELF Studio Blush and Bronzing Powder

Red Earth Brow Pencil


Lip

LipIce lipbalm





1. Use the narrow sponge tip to sweep the dark brown color (A) close to the eyelashes. I am applying the darkest color first instead of starting off with a lightest color.

2. Use the broad sponge tip to apply dark grey color (B) on the outer half of the lid.

3. Next, dab some gold color (C) to the inner half of lid. Blend the two colors together.

4. Brighten the inner corner of the eyes with light shimmery pink color (D).

5. Rim the lashline with black eyeliner (you can opt for brown eyeliner for a more natural look).

6. Apply mascara to the lashes and you're done! :)

This method works for single eyelids too, just apply the color (A) higher till you can almost see a bit of the color when you open your eyes. For double lids, you can apply up to your crease will do.

Hope this tutorial helps! No more excuse for no makeup to work anymore :P

Totally agree that getting up early is awkward! :p

I usually don't have much time to make up myself for Uni or for word too, so I also keep it to the basics.

So what I always always won't skip, even if I'm in a hurry are:
- concealer for redness and dark areas
- face powder (loose or pressed)
- blush
- eyelash curler + mascara
- lipstick / lipgloss

Thanks for sharing your usual 5 minutes eye makeup tips!
