5-Minute Beauty Look Essentials

The 5-Minute Beauty Look: 10 Beloved Makeup Products Guaranteed To Make Your Morning Easier

Welcome to Shop The Look, a content series where we highlight current trends and the products worth buying to pull them off.

Makeup's ability to transform a face is pretty incredible. Take a great cream contour, for example, which can help fake flawless bone structure, or some strategic lip lining, which can give the appearance of the fullest pout. However, on the subtler side of things, makeup's ability to simply awaken and brighten a face (especially when one is feeling particularly not awake or bright), is pretty impressive too. Appearing fresh-faced and makeup-free when you are indeed not? It's the beauty goal of all beauty goals.

While graphic liner and bold lip colors certainly have their time and place, the five-minute beauty look does too. Ideal for the office, errands, and regular old days, all it takes is a few staples to pull it off—think a moisturizing skin tint, a dab of concealer, an illuminating gloss, or a touch of brow gel. Ahead, we're highlighting 10 skin-perfecting, feature-enhancing products perfect for pulling off the look, ranging from first steps (Bobbi Brown's dreamy priming moisturizer) to final ones (Caudalie's makeup-locking beauty elixir). Keep scrolling to shop the full collection.
