If you're anything like us, you love your beauty sleep. But after hitting snooze on your morning alarm clock one-too-many times, you may find yourself with very little glam time. 

We've put together a few tried-and-true steps with our go-to Kristofer Buckle products to help you achieve the '5 minute makeup' beauty guru's won't stop talking about. 

Step 1: Foundation 

When it comes to quick, effective makeup looks- it's all about the skin. 

KB's 3-in-1 Triplicity Perfecting Foundation Stick, is our go-to for easy, all-over coverage. Because it's a stick rather than a liquid, Triplicity is easy to travel with (aka, you can apply it on the subway if you oversleep). 

As a bonus, the buildable formula makes it easy to add layers if you decide it’s too light later in the day!

Step 2: All about Bronzer 

Warm up your look and give your face dimension by adding Bronzer-- a simple and effective solution to giving your face life!  

Kristofer's Tip: Apply a matte bronzer under your cheek bones and jaw for a soft yet dramatic effect. You can also skip eyeshadow by applying bronzer on your eyelids for a fast, all-over bronzed look.

Step 3: Simple Liner  

Add some liner! When you're lacking time, simplicity is key- one swoop of liquid liner will make your eyes pop and give the appearance a timely makeup routine with minimal effort.

Our go-to is KB's Stunt Double Eyeliner and Corrector. One side lines, and the other corrects- making it easy to create the perfect line in a timely manner.

Step 4: Voluminous Lashes

Two minutes till you have to run out the door? Skip the smokey eye and go for voluminous lashes.

If we're in a pinch, we grab KB's Grand Opening Volumizing Mascara, apply a few layers, and call it a look. The tapered brush reaches every lash and gives the appearance of dramatic lashes with little effort.

Step 5: Tame your Brows 

Brows frame your face, so make them a priority when you're creating your 5-minute-makeup look. 

Kristofer Buckle’s Brow Champion is formulated with a powder and creme, so you can work with your brow's natural texture for fuller-looking finish.

Power Lock Makeup Setting Spray was formulated to keep makeup fresh all day and reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores!
