Beauty tutorials are big on YouTube — a search for “makeup tutorial” and “hair tutorial” yields more than five million videos. In this weekly series, we put a mix of popular and under-the-radar tutorials to the test and show you what’s best.

I’m a firm believer that no real-life makeup routine should require more than 15 minutes. (My skin-care routine, however, is a different story.) If I had my way, this would be me:

So while I can appreciate the artistry that goes into labor-intensive makeup tutorials, the speed and efficiency of a 15-minute one is much more suited to my lifestyle. That’s why I’m very into a video from beauty blogger Sazan Hendrix that breaks down how to get a comprehensive, full-coverage makeup look in less time than it takes you to fast forward through the commercials on an episode of “Bachelor in Paradise.” Watch the full video, which itself is blessedly quick, clocking in at under five minutes, above.
