3 Minute Party Prep Make Up Routine

You're running late. All of your friends are already at the party waiting for you. Your hair's wet, your makeup hasn't been applied, and you've got some severe FOMO... So why do you let this happen every. single. time?

Sound familiar? I think we're all guilty of our plan to be fashionably late going awry. The good news is getting party-ready is achievable in a matter of minutes. You just have to have the right tools to get the job done... FAST! And let's be honest, by the time you get there, it will be dark, the drinks will be flowing, and people won't even notice if you forgot to apply makeup entirely. But who doesn't want to feel a little glamorous when you're heading out with friends?

We recommend using the products that make you feel the most confident while not taking up a lot of your time. For example, you don't want to spend 15 minutes applying and blending your foundation. So nail down 3-5 products that will give you the confidence boost you need to get the party started before the alcohol starts kicking in. Without further ado, here's our 3-minute party prep makeup routine.


You don't need a full face of foundation when you're heading out. Instead, do a quick spot cover-up with some concealer. Brighten up your look by putting a small amount under your eyes, and you're good to go.


Give your face a touch of dimension and brush on a bit of bronzer. Now, this doesn't have to be perfect by any means. Use it on your cheekbones, around the parameter of your face, your forehead, and if you're running ahead of schedule, you can use it as a bit of eye shadow too!


We're going to let you in on a little secret of ours. If your eyeliner is on point, that's the only part of your makeup that people will remember. So make a statement with it! I know what you're thinking; creating the perfect flick takes more than 3 minutes on one eye alone! Well, well, well, we have another secret to let you in on. The Quick Flick has created a revolutionary eyeliner stamp that will cut your twenty-minute eyeliner routine into a quick 30-second process. Check it out here. It's easy to use and can give you a dramatic look in seconds.


Give your eyeliner the perfect complement and complete your look with a few coats of mascara. Don't stress about your lower lash line; it's too fiddly, and you want the eyeliner to be the statement in this 3-minute party prep look. So, apply and reapply to the top lash line if you have time, and you're all set.

P.S. For any rushed mistakes you may have made along the way, The Quick Flick also offers a portable Makeup Eraser Pen to help keep your makeup looking great while you dance the night away.

This makeup routine will take you about three minutes, start to finish. And trust me, it'll make you look party-ready in no time. So go ahead and get out of that house! You got this.
