25 Strategic Products Beauty Editors Rely On to Get Ready in 5 Minutes or Less

One thing about me is that I am always running out the door. No matter how much time I try to give myself in the mornings, it never seems to cut it—I end up snoozing my alarm or spending too much time in the shower, or my hair won't cooperate. No matter what it is, it's a pretty usual occurrence for me to realize that I need to leave my house in five minutes, but I have not even begun to think about my makeup.

Because of my propensity for lateness, I've gotten pretty damn good at doing my makeup in the 11th hour. There are certain products I reach for that I can confidently rely on to work their magic in under five minutes. I figured that the other beauty editors on my team might have some tricks up their sleeves as well. (Trust me when I say beauty editors are always running from event to event.)
