6 Products In Only 5 Minutes - My Daily Beauty Routine

BY Anum Bashir

For the past year, my daily beauty routine typically consists of no more than 6 products that take no longer than 5 minutes to apply after which I proceed to head out the door. It's proven to be perfect for me time and time again, so I've decided to share it with you. The "no make-up, make-up" routine by DM, brought to you by popular demand.

First thing's first - prepping your skin. More is more when it comes to moisturizing, so don't hold back! I usually start with Drunk Elephant's C-Firma Day Serum which is one of my favorite products by the brand. Vitamin C is an essential element to good skincare, so if you're not already on it, stop reading and find yours. I can't recommend this particular one enough!

I then proceed to a good moisturizer that not only protects skin from the sun, but also won't leave you feeling greasy towards the end of the day. Skinceuticals' Brightening UV Defense is my daily go-to. In fact, Waqas has started using it too and loves it.

Both products pictured below:

Now that you've successfully prepped your skin, I start with concealer under the eyes, and to cover any blemishes on my face. Remember though, with concealer, less is more in this case. 

It took me year to find the perfect concealer, and now that I have, won't be changing it for a long, long time. NARS has created the radiant creamy concealer which is radiant, creamy, and never noticeable, except for in a good way.

I then proceed to adding a little color on my cheeks by way of Chanel's powder blush in the color 370 - Elegance. It's a softer dustier rose which works well to warm the face up, but not too much. 

Here's what they look like. 

Next, if I'm in the mood, or have something special going on that day, I'll put on some mascara just to perk up the ol' eyes a bit. It's not something I do everyday, but mascara is a fun product to wear, especially at night.

I use a cult favorite, which happens to be a classicw - Loreal's Voluminous Mascara in Black.  

Lastly, it's lips. I always find a little color goes a long way, even if you decide to not wear ANYTHING else on your face. I typically on a daily basis turn to NARS' Satin Lipstick in "Kiss Me Stupid". It makes my lips look a little flushed, and adds just at tiny hint of color which I love :)
