    We get that unless you’re applying makeup for a living, you probably don’t have that much time to dedicate to perfecting all those expert beauty techniques that promise to make you look like yourself, but a million times better. Like those contouring face charts? Fuhgettaboutit. A 10–step process for faking a doe-eyed look after a late night out? We’d rather just hit the snooze button a few more times instead, thanks.

    But, just because you’re a little short on time or skill doesn’t mean you have to be relegated a lifetime of subpar makeup. We spoke with two beauty authorities; Marcus Monson, Guerlain’s national celebrity makeup artist, and James Boehmer, director of global artistry for NARS, to get some quick-and-dirty tips on how to up your makeup game in just 10 seconds or less. Consider these smart little tweaks your do-this, not-that guide and trust us, you’ll see a huge difference.

    Click through for seven quick tricks that’ll get you maximum results with minimal effort.
