Jaime King's 5 Minute Makeup Routine Is Versatile
It's a busy time of year, which means that sometimes you don't have much time to get ready before rushing out the door. Actress, model, entrepreneur, and mom of two Jaime King has a five minute makeup routine that is perfect for those hectic days. In just a few minutes — and with only three products — you can have a stunning on-the-go look. It doesn't get much easier than this!
When King announced that she was launching her our makeup line with Colour Pop, there was no doubt in my mind that it would be both lovely and easy-to-use. King's ability to to look red carpet ready without piling on the makeup is something that I've always loved about the star, and now, according to InStyle, that's what she hopes to bring to her makeup collection as well. Score!
The 36-year-old's beauty routine sticks to the basics. This is the kind of no-BS advice that you'd get from a best friend, which is so much different than the 50-step contouring routines that other celebrities (*ahem* Kim K) often share. With just a few products and no brushes at all, King's routine couldn't be any simpler.
"First, you need a good golden neutral shadow to swipe over your eyes and another beautiful contour color for your creases. I like to use my finger for a fuss-free application," King told InStyle. "Colour Pop makes an amazing blush that you can use on your lips, and once I throw that on, I’m out of the door."
It doesn't get easier than that!
Although King's Colour Pop collaboration won't be out until Spring 2016, there are plenty of five-minute makeup tutorials that stick to the basics as well. Whether you're in a hurry or just looking for a quick everyday routine, these tutorials are perfect for all the minimalist beauty lovers out there.

This tutorial uses zero makeup brushes, so it's perfect if you're in your car and need a touch up.

Stripping it down to only the basics, this tutorial uses concealer, a little liner, and mascara to get a messy meets chic look.
