There is something so light and necessary about a no-makeup makeup routine. I’d even say that every beauty lover should have one in their arsenal; for the days you don’t want to get fully ready but still feel good. If you aren’t heavily into makeup, then a no-makeup makeup routine might just be your full face. Looking to build your no-makeup makeup routine? These are the building blocks for the perfect 5-minute face!
A tinted moisturizer – bonus points if it’s a tinted SPF!
First thing’s first: a tinted moisturizer is the cornerstone of any 5-minute face. To simplify your steps, go for one with SPF and save yourself an extra step! I’m currently loving Colorescience’s Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield in Glow as my final skincare step and first no-makeup makeup step. The tint is light and gives your skin a beautiful glow without looking thick. It’s also SPF 50—major bonus!

A light, natural-looking blush
A little color on the cheeks gives your face dimension and glow in just a few easy dabs! I’m absolutely in love with Stila’s Complete Harmony – Lip & Cheek Stick; a creamy product that turns into your perfect pink upon application to the skin. It looks incredible and the sheer-effect gives your complexion that extra ‘oopmh’.
A defining mascara
A lightweight, defining mascara is the perfect way to dress your lashes for a no-makeup makeup look. Opt for something long-wearing and smudge free, like Kosas’s newest mascara, The Big Clean. It has a curved brush with thin bristles to help really define your lashes and the wear on this one is amazing!
A juicy lip oil
What is a no-makeup makeup look without the perfect lip? Because a 5-minute face is all about products that do more than they should, a lip oil is the perfect option for this look. Nourish your lips, give it a hint of color and shine, and bam! You’re ready to take on the day.
A simple highlighter
This last one is optional but I absolutely love adding an extra bit of shimmer on my cheekbones for my 5-minute face.
