Quick Take: Five-Minute Beauty Look

Are you a little afraid of makeup? Or just pressed for time? This is a sparkling, warp-speed beauty look that even the most timid can try.

Prep: Spray Jurlique Purely White Brightening Mist across your face. Kakadu Plum fruit extract, which is packed with Vitamin C, helps brighten skin for a radiant and youthful look.

Pucker Up: Apply Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in New Lover ($24). This flattering shade makes your lips take center stage, but isn't too shiny or matte. (I'm utterly mad for this particular glossy pencil and won't leave home without it.)

Cheeks: With a fan brush, lightly apply Nars blush in Douceur ($27) along your cheekbones for a deceptively natural flush.

A Finishing Touch:  Fragrance can complete any look. Try Bobbi Brown's classic Beach perfume ($55), which smells like sunblock, jasmine and sand. Wear it on a cloudy day for an instant pick-me-up feeling.

LOVE jurlique's Purely White line! I've been using it for about a month and my skin looks so much better. I'm loving that NARS lip pencil too... I think I need to buy that.
