Back To School 10 minute Makeup

Back To School 10 minute Makeup - Befitting Style

So you woke up late for school and you still want to arrive with a fresh face without looking tired. You may not have time to beat your face but if you have 10 minutes to spare, you can definitely create a fresh glow that lasts all day. Creating this easy back to school 10 minute makeup look was a challenge for me because I really enjoy getting ready (whether it’s for a meeting, hanging out with friends or dinner). I love taking my time and having fun with make up so I wasn’t even sure if I could complete this in 10 minutes.

Take a peek at the video above.

Because I timed myself, I realized that it took a little over 10 minutes to complete this look. While there are some things that I would have liked to change as I’m so used to my regular makeup routine (such a habit to follow certain steps), I’m glad that I was able to do this in a timely manner, showing that it’s possible to apply quick makeup and still look ready to go.

It’s super simple for the girl on the go!


Have you ever applied makeup in ten minutes?

74 Thoughts to “Back To School 10 minute Makeup”

  1. Typically my makeup process is under 10 minutes, because, school lol. I focus on some eyeliner, maybe eyeshadow, and lipstick is non-negotiable. I would love to learn about baking and highlighting as I have some formal events to attend this August, but for right now, the shorter it takes me to get ready, the better.

    1. Totally understand! I think I “fake bake” (just made up that term lol) I apply transluscent powder right underneath my eye but not every single place that I have placed concealer on my face. I didn’t use any in this video but I usually do so.

    I wish I can put on my make up in ten minutes. There are so many products in the market that can really get you confused. I am fussy with make up, especially lipsticks, I tend to get lip rash from it. Thank you Oyin, God bless you. Amen

  3. Love the makeup! You look amazing!

  4. Most of my routine is under 5 minutes but I love all the products you’ve used and under 10 minutes?! I don’t think I could look that amazing under 20 minutes LOL. I love that mascara, it’s in my makeup bag and I use it constantly.

    1. Girlll this mascara is one of my faves!!

  5. Amanda

    Great tips! I am a big of fan of fast and efficient makeup routines. I find it often takes me a maximum 15 minutes to do my makeup.

    1. 15 minutes is pretty good! It usually takes me much longer!

  6. You look great! I never was able to do my makeup in 10 minutes lol. I am either totally caked face or bare lol

    1. LOL girl this 10 minute makeup was definitely a challenge for me.

  7. Sue Tanya McHorgh

    I love your makeup. It’s amazing. It usually takes me 30 minutes to get ready.

    1. Yeah if I’m not doing eyeshadow, then it takes 30 minutes for me to do my face.

  8. I need to learn to do a 10 minute makeup routine! Such a time saver!

    1. Most definitely a time saver!

  9. My everyday makeup routine usually takes an hour. This is really pretty look and takes only 10mins.

    1. Girlll it takes me an hr too! LOL!

  10. I’ve never tried eye makeup and think I would look like a panda if I do 😉 But I can boast of great lipstick application. You did fab job in 10 mins makeup.

    1. Girrrrlll lipstick is my fave!

  11. Hands up I never take that long applying make up – I’ve never had the patience I sort of slap on and get it done, I should probably try and take a bit longer sometimes.

    1. Yeah patience is definitely needed for makeup.

  12. Thanks for the tips! I have such a hard time getting my makeup perfect in the morning

  13. I’m a makeup fan so I prefer to create more in depth looks, but being a mom with little kids, I don’t always have the time (or their patience) for it. For my ultra-quick days, I go with a little BB cream, mascara, and fix my eyebrows!

    1. I haven’t used BB cream in yearsss! But I used to love it! Mascara and brows always wakes the face up!

  14. Blanca N Valbuena

    10 minute makeup is what I’m all about. Us ladies who rock have no time to spend 45 minutes on “putting on our faces”. It’s all about getting out there and taking over the world (and looking great doing it)

    1. LOL I hear you but I definitely take about 45 minutes to an hr to do my make up any other day. This 10 minute makeup was definitely a challenge!

  15. Not going back to school as I am done with uni (yeeeeah) but I could use some makeup help for work ahah and the shorter the better!

    1. Yes girl! This defnitely comes in handy for work!

  16. Hannah Marie

    I am not into make up but this will be useful. You are beautiful!

  17. Your makeup is so flawless!
    I am not going back to school per say but, I love and will take these tips on board! Always open to suggestions.
    Especially when our skin tones are similar

    1. Yesssss girl!!! I look forward to seeing more options for dark skinned women like us!

  18. Great video. If I ever decide to wear make up again, I will come to your page for help! haha. Life is just so much easier without wearing make up IMO.

    1. LOL I’ll be here to help 🙂

  19. So practical! I used to love taking my time to do my makeup, but I had to learn to get it to 10 minutes with kids!

    1. Thanks! It’s totally great for when you’re rushing.

  20. This is awesome! I always love to be quick. I don’t have the time to spend hours getting ready.

    1. Great. Glad it helps 🙂

  21. Lady, you are crazy beautiful. I love your hair so much, and you cracked me up so hard with saying you need ten mins for your brows! I barely wear makeup itself, but I do my brows and use mascara. Those are the two things I do. Brows and mascara… and it takes me literally 10 minutes. LOL! =D

    1. LOL girrrrllll I really enjoyed challenging myself. Surprised I was able to do my brows that quick.

  22. Nicole Flint

  23. Love that this takes so little time and you look amazing! Such a great tutorial and beautiful natural look.

    When I do get ready for school I try to do minimal makeup and just add a little color with the lipstick.

    1. Yesssss girl I used to wear just lipstick (a few yrs ago)

  25. Angela Milnes

    Oh my goodness, where has this been my whole life?! I’ve always skipped makeup on busy days because I couldn’t do it quickly. This is great!

    1. Haha! Glad I can help!

  26. You are absolutely stunning!! I’m a full glam kinda girl and I cannot do my makeup in 10 minutes no matter how hard i try!

    1. Thank you love! I love full glam. I always have fun with it!

  27. I love your make-up! You are gorgeous. I’m so impressed that you can do this in 10 minutes.

  28. I love ‘back to school’ looks. Moreover, you made it look so simple and easy. 🙂 I particularly loved the eye shadow palette. Cheers!!

  29. Wow! In such little time you can still look this pretty afterwards. That’s remarkable.

  30. It usually takes me about 30 minutes to do my makeup but I have done it in 10 before. I like the look of your 10 minute makeup look it is very fresh and youthful x

  31. I usually get mine done in 10 min too~ Less in fact! I think having a good skin will help reduce the amount of time to do the makeup!

    1. True but it also depends on what you’re doing which may end up being time-consuming even if you’re super skilled.

  32. Cristina Leau

    You look great, and only 10 minutes, that’s so cool. It will take me forever to do it. I will make it and then wash it off and then make it again :)) I’m really not good at make up

    1. It’s okay practice always makes better… then eventually it makes perfect!

  33. Steve

    Haha, would be for the female version of me, always waking up way too late, just throwing on clothes while running out the door ?

    1. LOL at least you know how to get dressed quickly!

  34. These are such great ideas! I am always trying to find ways to spare a little time in the morning yet still trying to leave the house looking good! Thanks for the great tips and for sharing!

    1. Glad you love it. Thanks for checking it out.
