The 5-Minute Face… Naturally!


How can you get your face make-up ready in just 5 minutes? Sandy Gold walks you through her favourite products that deliver big results with the least amount of effort.

Step 1: Face

The 5-Minute Face... Naturally!

Time: 2 Minutes

Products: Organic Raw Shea Butter, RMS 'Un' Cover-Up, Sonia Kashuk blending sponge

  1. Start with a clean moisturized face.
  2. Use raw shea butter as your moisturizer. Warm up a small amount in your hands then press and pat into the skin. Shea butter penetrates fast to hydrate and moisturizes the skin. Even out your skin tone.
  3. Use a concealer instead of foundation - it has better coverage and can be used all over to even out the skin tone, conceal redness and hide dark circles.
  4. Cut down your makeup time by applying it only to areas that need it - then blend it out with a sponge.
  5. Blot with a tissue to remove any excess product

Step 2: Eyes and Eyebrows

The 5-Minute Face: Eyes and Eyebrows

Time: 2 Minutes

Products: 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara; 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Eye Shadow

  1. Use brown eyeshadow for eye's and eyebrows
  2. Use a brown matte eyeshadow to line your eye's along the top lash line.
  3. Just because you only have 5 minutes, don't forget about your eyebrows. They help to frame the face and complete the look
  4. Apply several coats of a volumizing black mascara
  5. Use the darkest blackest mascara you can find for the biggest impact

Step 3: Cheeks

The 5-Minute Face: Cheeks

Blush is a must for a fresh, healthy look; add blush to the apples of the cheeks for a pop of colour.

Step 4: Lips

The 5-Minute Face: Lips

Time: 30 seconds

Product: Mineral Lip Tints and Shimmers

  1. Finish with gloss
  2. Gloss is easier to apply than a dark lipstick
