Busy Morning? Here’s A 5-Minute Makeover

There’s no remedy for early-morning sleepiness beyond getting up and pumping some adrenaline through the body, but hiding the dark circles under your eyes is a way to fool everyone if not yourself. On the mornings that our tired minds get the best of us, the makeup routine can be long and painful, or sometimes if you’re running late not reasonable at all. Because of this, we created a natural look that can be applied within five minutes. We focused on the eyes, the cheeks, and the lip. Stylist Chutney Gates is the makeup artist behind the look.


Step #1: Apply Aveda’s concealer or mineral tinted moisturizer to the areas highlighted in the photo. This will hide the dark circles and make your eyes appear wider and brighter. 


Step #2: Use a brush to apply Aveda’s petal essence face accents (i.e. blush!) to the cheekbones. This will create dimension.


Step #3: The easiest way to feel more put together in the morning is applying a strong lip! We recommend a rehydrating lip glaze.


Step #4: Smile! It’ll help put the hectic morning behind you and replace it with a productive day.
