It'll take you just ten minutes.

Less makeup and more skin is the ticket to looking younger and cooler with ease. Here's your five-step guide to a beauty routine that's stripped down to the basics:

1. Base

Before everything else, touch base first. A minimalist face banks on flawless foundation that’s essential to faking poreless porcelain skin. Use a cream foundation for a semi-matte finish that keeps your skin hydrated.

2. Brows

If you can’t tame ’em, brush ’em. Gone are the days of the well-drawn brow. Instead, leave them undone or mildly managed for a bushy, natural arch.

3. Cheeks

Imitate covetable glowing skin sans the grease with a multi-shade blush compact. Sweep a thin layer of color on the hollow of your cheeks before topping the apples with a highlighter. The trick is to not put on too much.

4. Eyes

Don’t put on mascara. Yes, you heard us right. Practice self-restraint by thinly lining your eyes at the waterline and simply curling your lashes instead. Try a gel formula for budgeproof definition.

Preview Tip: The trick to the au naturel lid is to dab a shade of brown shadow twice below your crease until you see your lids turn a shade darker than they normally are. Then, blend the edges outward to hide any trace of makeup.

5. Lips

Think pink, but not blatantly Barbie. Try a mix of nude and rose shades for a flushed lip that looks believably your own. Try a sheer, breezy blend of coral that works on most skin tones.
