If you're a person who wears cosmetics, you've likely heard a man say some version of the following:

"What takes you so long to put on your makeup? It can't be THAT hard!" Ugh. Since beautifying oneself is so quickly and easily accomplished in the minds of many men, BuzzFeed challenged five of them to put on a full face of cosmetics in 10 minutes or less. They were each asked to use foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush, eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara, and lipstick. The bros were also made to swear on a stack of false eyelashes that they'd never done makeup before. And after seeing their artistry, you'll probably believe them.


First, distribute your foundation evenly with the end of an eyeliner pencil.

Don't you love finding ways for your products to do double duty? This is going to save you SO much time in the morning, trust.

Brush your cheek color onto the lowest possible part of your face, ideally just above your jaw.

Remember, you're trying to "fool the eye" by creating the illusion of naturally rosy jowls. Contouring is important!
