Double Fast Beauty: Your New Makeup Routine Done-in Record Time!

Finally – Fewer brushes to clean!

Say hello to time-saving, double fast beauty products, and your new makeup routine.

And say goodbye to waking up to something other than an alarm clock.

Waking up to the sounds of your children fighting over that ONE spot on the (huge) living room sectional is suddenly, not so annoying.

At 8:20 a.m. on a Monday.

Ahh, summer!

But normally a lot of us would be at work, or at least, on our way to work by this time of the morning.

So compared to an alarm clock blaring at 5:45 a.m. – I bet you would choose the bickering children too!

Because on summer vacation, you hopefully have nowhere to be bright and early in the morning.

But now the summer days are winding down, and you are starting to think about one or two things:

  1. Back-to-school, and
  2. Back -to-work


Quarantine life is thankfully over.

It’s back to your normal schedule: wake up, wake everyone else up, prepare some sort of quick breakfast (like this one), get them dressed, get yourself dressed, and get everyone out the door.

Well, you wake up early enough.

But how much time do you spend on your morning beauty routine?

As in, your makeup?

I know you want to look your best, and believe me I get it.

I go NOWHERE without some sort of makeup product on this mug.

A full beat all day every day used to be the goal (if you get what I mean, then we are on the same page).

#Quarantinelife has changed all of that.

What are you to do now when you need to get out the door fast, but still want to look pulled together with the least amount of effort and in the LEAST amount of time?

Because every single minute in your mornings is crucial.

Start your day with a quick and healthy breakfast:

Hello Fast Beauty

Your new makeup arsenal (yes, it’s that serious) now consists of:

  1. Suncreen/Primer (sun protection year round, you know the drill)
  2. Powder Foundation
  3. Bronzer/highlight duo (well technically two products, but they are packaged together so we’ll count it as one)
  4. Cheek/Lip Stain
  5. An all-in-one mascara to lengthen, volumize, and curl

Your beauty routine in record time!

That’s 5 products that will transform your morning routine, and save you a ton of time.

Now by any estimate, this should take somewhere between 5-7 minutes, time allotted for blending, etc.

However, I’m not including brow products in this routine because well, that is a whole other deal.

So assuming your brow situation is on point, this routine is well under 10 minutes.

And just like with anything else: the more you do this double-duty beauty routine, the faster you will get

(and at least one less thing to stress about in the morning).

Your 4 Double-Duty Products (in order of application)

Most of these products are my very own, personal recommendations.

I’m a realist, and believe and that you DO NOT always have to spend a lot of money on makeup to get great results (my makeup collection is a true mix of high-end and drugstore beauty… just saying)!

So depending on your budget, I am giving you two fantastic options for each double-duty product.


1. Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen, Spf 40(Supergoop)/ Cover Girl Matte Ambition, Skin Primer Spf 20

  • Both products boast more than suitable sun protection and prime the skin with zero flashback ( a necessity for persons of color and anyone leveling up their insta-game).


2. PUR 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Foundation, Spf 15 (PUR Cosmetics)/ L’Oreal Infalliable Freshwear Powder Foundation

  • Both products are buildable in coverage, which means you could forego a concealer if applied correctly( and if you go with the 4-in-1 by PUR, you could also technically skip the first step because it too, has a built in spf).
  • And because they are powder foundations, you don’t need a separate finishing powder either. Now, that’s a time-saver!


3. Haus Laboratories by Lady Gaga, Bronzer Duo/E.L.F. Baked Highlighter & Bronzer (E.L.F. Cosmetics)

Dual face product to-go!
  • Like their names suggest, these are both two products in a single package; therefore, the shades complement one another which takes the guesswork out of pairing each one to your specific skintone!
  • Here’s a tip:  swipe bronzer over eylids and highlighter under browbone for a quick, natural eyelook.

4. BeneTint Cheek and Lip Stain (Benefit Cosmetics)/Dr.Pawpaw Multipurpose Balm (Dr.Pawpaw Original Balm)

  • These products will probably be your favorites because of their versatility! They both come in an array of shades to match your moods, from deep reds, to rosy blush tones and punchy corals. They can also be layered for your desired intensity (again, #mood).
I love all of my balms: Hot Pink, Outrageous Orange, and Rich Mocha.


5. Better Than Sex Mascara (Too Faced)/Sky High Washable Mascara(Maybelline)

  • These two products need no introduction. If you could choose a holy grail mascara for life – these are the top two choices. Just read the thousands of reviews on the internet and you will understand why you can’t go wrong with either one (just choose whichever one your wallet is fine with)!

Double Fast Beauty is Your Thing Now

After trying your new double-duty morning (or maybe anytime) routine, it will be hard to go back to your old ways.

After all, you can save so much time, cabinet space, and money with double-duty beauty products!

Now, you have time for that extra cup of coffee or some of your delicious gluten-free crispbreads topped with a bit of spread (your lips are stained at this point, so go ahead and eat- no need to worry about that either).

You’re welcome.
