How to Master the 5-Minute Face

We know you are busy in the AM.   It’s much more fun to linger in bed scanning emails, than racing around your apartment applying endless beauty products. 

Here’s how to make the most of your morning (plus some extra tips for an easy breezy day).

The best way for skin to APPEAR glowing is for it to actually BE healthy and radiant.  Our morning regimen includes SHISEIDO  White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum+ ($125).  This miracle worker breaks down sunspots and other dark pigmentation to clear the canvas for flawless, even-toned skin.

Another way to save on time is to can the concealer.  If you are thinking, “how will I hide my under eye baggage?” – don’t sweat it, we’ve got you covered.  The secret is to work an eye cream into your evening skincare routine. SHISEIDO White Lucent Anti-Dark Circles Eye Cream ($55) is an intensive calming cream that targets pigmentation and poor microcirculation to reveal vivid radiance around the eye contour area.  Plus, over time, dark circles are visibly reduced for a youthful and flawless look.

PLUS, by naturally reducing dark circles at night means less makeup in the morning.  The less concealer you apply, the fewer creases and cakeyness you have to deal with during the day.

EYE gotta admit it, EYE love, SHISEIDO Shimmering Cream EYE Color ($25).  The rich cream formula can be doubled up to create a faux-multishade effect.  Dab a shadow brush into the pot and apply with a heavy hand around the lash line for concentrated color.  Then brush upward and gently blend to create a lightening effect.  Forget breaking out different brushes, tubes, tins and pallets – this one step process promises perfect shadow in the blink of an eye.   

Shades for Spring: to be on trend for the season, try out a soft pastel color in Sunshower (soft, translucent orange,  Pale Shell (delicate cool pink) and Ice (luminous turquoise)

What is the number one lip complaint?  Sticky lip color that quickly rubs off and leaves lips dry and peeling.  Well, technically that is three, but with SHISEIDO Shimmering Rouge Lip Color all my problems are solved.  Don’t waste your time with liners, lip conditioners, base colors and shimmers, because with this long-lasting lip saver, your smile will last as long as your color. 

This product is so good, that I’m going to be giving away a full sized product to 3 lucky winners.  Try it out for yourself.  To enter, follow me on twitter and tweet me your best 5-mintue face tip (contest closes 3/15).
