People often ask me about doing makeup in a real hurry. 

Never mind the five minute face. I'll give you a one minute face!

Apply some undereye concealer and foundation if you need. Then get a cream multipurpose color. In a pinch you can use a berry lipstick for this but you can also get a product made for this like the Nars Multiple, or Boomstick Color by Cindy Joseph. (The boomstick only comes in one color but it is the ideal sheer berry shade which works on all tones and in all seasons, so get that color whenever possible, in any product.)

Using your middle finger, tap the cream color on your cheeks, center of the brow-bone and lips. Blend, adding product until you are satisfied. Set face with sheer powder and you're done. This adds the right shade to any part of your face that would be warmed by natural circulation giving you a super fast natural look!
