    To say that Drew Barrymore is busy would be a ginormous understatement. She has like, a lot of jobs, plus two young daughters, which equals very little time to get ready. (See: Her candid Instagrams of the disheveled state she shows up to work in most days.) Thankfully, though, she did herself a favor by formulating multi-tasking products that make her “five-minute mom makeup” a breeze—when she can squeeze it in, that is.

    The talkshow host shared the quick and easy routine in a new Instagram video. “My 5 Minute Mom Makeup Routine using @flowerbeauty!” she captioned the clip. Using six products and only her fingers as applicators, she has efficient beauty down pat—and you can too. Ahead, we’re breaking down a step-by-step guide to getting Barrymore’s look.

    First, she moisturizes and primes

    But don’t mistake those as two separate steps. No, with a blend of natural oils and pearlescent pigments, Flower Beauty’s Supernova Celestial Skin Elixir does both jobs, leaving the skin glowing and prepped for makeup. Barrymore dispenses one ampule full of product into her hand and slathers it everywhere. Moving on!

    Then, she color corrects and conceals—in one simple step

    Flower Beauty‘s Chill Out Smoothing Color Corrector is Barrymore’s go-to “gamechanger,” she previously told Prevention. “I have the crypt keeper dark circles,” she joked. “I don’t even have to have concealer on top of it.” Using her ring finger, the actress simply dots and blends a bit of the peach-toned product around her eyes and on any spots of discoloration.

    Next, liquid highlighter adds more glow

    To keep the skin looking like, well, skin, Barrymore adds Flower Beauty’s Spotlight Liquid Highlight to the high points of her face—the cheekbones, forehead, bridge of the nose, beneath the brow bone, and along her cupid’s bow. The shiny, but not too sparkly formula is available in three shades and comes in convenient sponge-tipped packaging.

    Cream bronzer warms up the complexion

    The only product in her routine that isn’t from Flower Beauty, Barrymore reaches for Westman Atelier’s Face Trace Contour Stick for some dimension along the hairline, beneath the cheekbones, along the jawline, and on the sides of the nose. All of the bold markings look a little funny at first, but the cream blends out surprisingly easily with her fingers. That must be why she calls the multi-purpose stick her “favorite.”

    A fluffed brow and bold lip finish the look

    To tie everything together, Barrymore swipes on her Bitten Lip Stain—which applies like a gloss but stains the lips with color for all-day wear—and brushes through her brows with the Fiber Fix Brow Gel, which features a tiny brush that applies tiny fibers to the brow hairs for a thicker, fuller look.

    And just like that, she’s ready to drop the kids off at school, or head to set, or attend a meeting, or do an interview… whatever her hectic schedule as a single mom and CEO brings.
