In an exclusive E! interview, the makeup pioneer shares a five-minute routine you'll love, the best products for beginners, and tips to get that natural-looking glow we all strive for.

E!: What are your favorite and least favorite makeup trends right now?
MD: I love seeing all the trends out there, I just don't take them too seriously. My current favorite trends are any that feature natural, radiant looks using cream formulas. My least favorite are any that are super silly or unrealistic, but I still enjoy them as entertainment.

E!:  Share a 5-minute makeup routine that's a great go-to in a rush.
MD: Start with my SoftSculpt Transforming Skin Enhancer to lightly even out and warm your skin, then add Soft Pop Plumping Blush Veil to your cheeks and lips. Both products are super easy to apply, and the result is fresh and radiant skin. Finish with a couple coats of your favorite mascara and you're good to go.
