No time for your usual glam routine? Kim Kardashian has you covered with a five-minute face featuring a genius trick.

In a how-to video posted recently on her site, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star's go-to makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic said the way to shave off seconds is to get more out of the products you’re already using. Case in point: bronzer.

"Sometimes you only have a few minutes…and there are a few shortcuts you can do to get ready and still look put-together and polished," he said. "You're just going to take that same product that you contoured your skin with and you just use it as an eyeshadow."

Dedivanovic takes a blush brush, a smaller contouring brush and finally an eyeshadow blender to work Rodial's Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder ($57, bluemercury.com) onto her cheeks, temples, jawline and eyelids.

"When you don't have that much time, and you have to skip a lot of steps, this is the perfect way to do that," the L.A.-based makeup artist noted, adding that it's also a space-saving tactic. "[It's great] if you don't want to lug around shadows, or lots of [other] products, and you want to do a monochromatic look."

Dedivanovic then swipes a little highlighter to Kardashian's cheek and brow bones, adds a peachy blush for an extra glow, and tops off the look with mascara and a berry-shaded lip.

"It is really pretty," Kardashian said of the overall look at the end of the clip.
