“I usually like to start by putting concealer wherever I feel inspired to put it,” Sabrina Carpenter told Allure while doing her 10-minute simple makeup routine on camera. “I kinda like to put it in all the places that I’m going to blend out with foundation.” She places the Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealer by Laura Mercier underneath the eyes, on the forehead, and around the nose… before completing her natural masterpiece with the Sheer Glow Foundation by NARS. We love it! It’s not exactly a surprise that concealer is the top product in Sabrina’s 10-minute simple makeup routine, as it’s a holy grail product for reducing dark circles and imperfections in seconds, and Flawless Fusion is an excellent choice. This luxury makeup product provides lightweight, medium coverage that stays put for up to 12 hours - with no creasing or fading. It’s made with a Blurring Powder Blend that diffuses light to smooth the look of fine lines and create a soft-focus effect, which is ideal for the days that Sabrina is on camera, and hydrates the delicate under eye skin to perfection. Make a luxury makeup splurge for 2021 and invest in this Sabrina-approved concealer that’s great for your 10-minute simple makeup looks!

If the name of this Charlotte Tilbury palette isn’t enough to convince you that it’s perfect for your 10-minute makeup looks, just listen to what Sabrina has to say. She loves to use the pale pink hue across her eyelids, and takes it up a notch with one of her favorite minimal makeup tricks. “I like to put that shimmery color I use for my lids, in my inner corners - creates more shape and definition!” Indeed, the inner corner shimmer is the best simple makeup trick around that makes you look wide awake. And Sabrina’s beauty routine is proof that while this Charlotte Tilbury palette definitely can live up to the smokey eye looks it promises, it’s also great for your minimal makeup looks. After you’re done applying the pretty pink shade that the actress-singer loves, you can create a radiant glow with a pop of blush and gold highlighter that adds captivating color to your cheeks. Or your eyes, because we’re all about adding a touch of gold inner corner shimmer, also a must-have in Beyonce’s makeup and beauty routine. This eyeshadow palette fits right into your bag, and is the perfect palette to create 10-minute makeup looks for day and night.

“We all like looking like a glazed donut, or something.” Wise words from Sabrina Carpenter in her “10-Minute Makeup Routine” video by Allure, and we couldn’t agree more. She likes to create a natural glow with the Backstage Glow Face Palette by Dior, which also happens to be one of the best highlighter palettes in the beauty world, and one of the best luxury makeup splurges of 2021. Why is Backstage Glow so stunning? It contains four highlighter shades to mix and match for runway-worthy levels of radiance. These colors include Gold, Pearly White, Bronze with holographic accents, and Shimmering Peach… all of which can be worn alone or blended together for an exquisite highlight that still looks totally natural. Looking for a poppin’ highlight that’s celebrity-approved and ready to be used in your 10-minute makeup routine? Backstage Glow has a 97% approval rating for blendability on MIRA, along with 95% who say it’s super pigmented.

Victoria’s Secret model Taylor Hill has a signature cat eye look that she wears on and off the runway, which she tells Vogue that she “has been practicing for years, but still sucks at.” See, even gorgeous supermodels like her have trouble with liquid eyeliner! That being said, she still creates a killer winged liner in a sultry brown shade… which you can recreate with the Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Smoky Quartz by Stila. Brown creates a softer appearance that enhances your eyes a bit more than black, and is ideal for everyday makeup looks, and your cat eye will be bulletproof like Taylor’s with this Stila favorite. The felt tip is flexible yet firm, and will be there for you through thick and thin (lines) as you enjoy the precision of this cult liquid eyeliner. Intense Smoky Quartz is a medium brown hue that looks stunning on all, and you’ll be runway-ready with this minimal makeup essential that’s beloved by Taylor Hill.

Monsieur Big Mascara by Lancôme, $25

Mascara typically isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think about the best multi-task makeup products, unless you’re Taylor Hill. Not only does she use the Monsieur Big Mascara by Lancôme to create falsie-worthy lashes in just a few swipes, she also uses it to smooth out her signature brows! “So because I have really dark eyebrows and I never fill them, I just take some of the mascara and use it to lift my brows,” she says in a video. She’s definitely not a huge brow enthusiast, as she goes on to say that she never even plucks or tweezes them! That being said, she rocks the feathered brow trend better than anybody we know… and you can do the same with your favorite mascara, a supermodel-approved beauty trick. Back to the Monsieur Big Mascara, it’s really good. For both your brows and your lashes. This formula produces a false lash effect with up to 12x more volume, and up to 24 hours of wear - meaning that your mascara won’t run or smudge, ever. The high-intensity, ultra-black lashes produce enough drama to rival even your favorite falsies, and fit perfectly with the metallic silver cut crease or intense smokey eye that you’re already planning for your first night out after quarantine. Monsieur Big Mascara is also great for everyday looks, and brings a bit of French girl and supermodel glamour to your 10-minute makeup routine!

“I love my eyelash curler, I have five” - Taylor Hill as she effortlessly curls her lashes for a Vogue video, and we’ve never related to her more. Eyelash curlers are the under-appreciated heroes of your makeup bag, as there’s no better way to complete your 10-minute makeup look than with a lash lift. With or without mascara. Try the Salon Series Lash Curler by Revlon, a drugstore favorite that curls to perfection and keeps your mascara locked in all day. Even if you’re under the hot runway lights at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show like Taylor (it could happen!). A fun fact about this eyelash curler? According to Revlon, it was “designed and engineered in the German city known for its history of fine-precision metal work, since medieval times!” Basically, your lashes are about to make history and become a work of medieval art. This eyelash curler is made with titanium to feel sturdy in your hand, and sweeps up your lashes with ease for your most striking looks. Since mascara is the definition of an everyday makeup product, you’ll probably be using the Salon Series Lash Curler a lot… but don’t worry about lifespan.
