Birchbox's Co-Founder Swears By This 10-Step Beauty Routine For Flawless Skin

If you're a beauty babe, you're probably familiar with Birchbox, the monthly beauty subscription service that sends customers several samples of makeup, hair and skincare products each month. The brand also has its own makeup line.

Co-founder Hayley Barna, a self-proclaimed “lifelong beauty beginner,” recently became the first female partner at seed-stage venture capital firm First Round Capital, so she's a busy boss.

Oh, and did we mention that her entire morning skincare routine takes less than five minutes?
