The Quick Makeup Method
The quickest way there is to do makeup is by using a multiple use makeup product – a makeup stick. These work when you’re learning how to do makeup on-the-run or for those times when you are in a “makeup pinch.” The color from a makeup stick can be used on your eyes, cheeks and lips. The best color to get is one that is in the neutral range.
The reason a makeup stick works so well is that the color actually looks different on each part of your face. Since your lips already have a red tone to them, when you apply the color over them, it will give a matte stained look. Your cheeks are naturally lighter in tone than your lips and so the color won’t look as dark there and you’ll see more of the true color. The same goes for your eyes.
Makeup sticks are sheer makeup . Apply the product with your fingertips. Dot it onto the area you are covering and then use your fingers to smooth it out over the area. For your cheeks make a line of dots and then blend them quickly. You need to work fast with these products. Yes, you can use your fingers to apply makeup.

Luscious Lip Balm
Do you want to know how to do makeup for a glistening lip look? Lip balm and lip gloss work wonders. Since you have already applied the makeup stick as a lip stain, then topping it off with a lip balm will make your lips glisten. Kiel’s lip balm works perfectly if you want a clear color. It will keep your lips moistened throughout the day. If you find that the makeup stick you used is a little too light then choose a light frosted lip gloss to apply over it. It will make the color lighter.
Once you have your color products on then take a lash thickening mascara and apply to your upper eyelashes. Specialty thickening mascaras by their very nature make your eyelashes look thicker. Just one coat should be enough to define your lashes sufficiently, especially if you use the blackest black mascara.
When you are finished applying the makeup products, simply use one more wipe to whisk any residual color off the tips of your fingers. You’re finished! The entire routine should only take a minute or two.
* Remember, toss an extra cleansing packet and the makeup products you used into your shoulder messenger bag and you’ll have makeup on hand to touch up during the day. When you know how to do makeup this quick, you’ll never have to be concerned about being seen without it again!
