Makeup is amazing, but let’s be honest, sometimes the whole routine can take up way too much time when we need to be somewhere in a hurry. Also, our skin deserves a little bit of a breather once in awhile. The good news is that there are beauty tips that can still have us looking our best while wearing less makeup. These beauty tricks will have you looking fabulous in no time!

Here are five ways to look great with the least amount of makeup.

1. Use less foundation: Your face can still look flawless using less foundation. Some celebrities, like Jennifer Aniston, are known for their natural look. To achieve the same, flawless style, simply use a damp sponge instead of a brush and apply your foundation in thin layers to avoid caking.

2. Define your eyes: Opt for a pencil liner instead of a liquid liner that is easier to smudge and to help you achieve more consistent results. Use a nude-colored pencil instead of black for your waterline, this will help you look more awake throughout the day.

3. Don’t skip the highlighter/bronzer: Highlighter is a great way to brighten up your look and bronzer can help you contour without using much effort. Use highlighter on your brow bone, the inner corners of your eyes, and the tops of your cheeks. Bronzer can be used as a light eye or cheek contour if you’re in a rush.

4. Streamline your routine: It’s always a good idea to have some color on your cheeks. Using a strobing or shimmery blush can help to streamline your routine by depositing color and shine in one stroke.

5. Define and thicken your brows: Polish off your look with an easy-to-apply tinted brow gel. A brow gel can help to keep your brows in place, add color, and even helps to fill in bare spots.
