Nowadays, video calls are more common than ever before. But a lot of us (yes, even me) tend to leave our cameras off during a meeting. Yet there are those few who are getting up early to make more of an effort to look presentable. And the thing is, you can still get away with a cute, but quick makeup routine without putting in too much effort for the four walls that will see it most often.

Though a three-product makeup routine doesn’t sound feasible, you’d be surprised. Based on your personal preference, products from Fenty Beauty’s skin-like complexion products to Glossier’s line of makeup-no-makeup can offer what you consider to be your must-have beauty products.

Not every beauty lover uses the same techniques to create a look. In fact, depending on your favorite style of makeup β€” on the spectrum of full-face beauty queen to a skincare-only fan β€” it may be easier to find what suits you best. And that way you can better narrow down your routine to three steps.

Though it can be a lot harder to get up in the morning during a time like this, doing a short and sweet makeup routine can help get you back into the swing of things. If you’re a dewy skin fan or fully baked beauty babe, there’s a routine you can achieve in just three steps. Here are just nine minimal product makeup routines you can try for your next virtual get-together.
