One of the most heard-of excuses that women give for not putting on makeup is lack of time; "No time lar..." or "I don't wanna sacrifice my sleeping time"
Seriously though, don't you wanna look at least presentable for the day ahead especially when you're gonna be meeting people? So it's a Monday but you don't have to show the world that you'd rather be under the blanket than anywhere else.
This video shows that you don't have to slave in front of the mirror to put on a full face makeup. All you need is 10 minutes, assuming that you have that much to spare.

Quickie Makeup Tips:
Use a foundation that gives good coverage and doesn't require setting powder eg. powder foundation, cream-to-powder foundation, stick foundation
Well-groomed eyebrows makes a world of difference to your face. If you have time for only one feature, go for the brows
Wear looks that you're familiar with aka fail-proof. When you're in a rush, it's not a good idea to try out looks/colors that you've never worn before
If you're comfortable with light one-wash colors, go for that. Personally, I'm used to eyeliner and smokey eyes so I find that darker eyeshadows work better for my eyes. A dark color (especially for cream eyeshadow) allows me to control the intensity and blend out edges without washing the color out
Eyeliners (gel and liquid) need time to dry and they can be time-consuming to apply. If you really must wear a liner, use a waterproof pencil liner
Prominent lashes open up the eyes and take away attention from plain eyeshadow. Use a mascara that you're most comfortable using. Avoid mascaras that take a long time to dry or has clumsy wands
Go for sheer cheek colors that can be layered on to avoid over-applying
There will be no room for errors so minimize them!
Relax... one product at a time. The more you rush, the more panicked you'll become and the more errors you'll make
