The 5 Product Face

Makeup 5 Product Face

Some days we just don't have time. Those extra 15 minutes in bed are way more worthy than a full face of makeup. With that in mind, I've created the perfect 5 product face - 5 products to give a full make-up look but in half the time.

First up, if I'm late I'll skip foundation all together and go straight in with concealer.  The Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer is the best for coverage and lightness. As much as I adore Collections concealer, sometimes it's just too heavy on it's own. I can't leave the house without my brows, so the Anastasia Brow Pomade is a must. Next is a toss-up between bronzer and blush. Over the summer months I've been going for Benefit Hoola to add some colour and sculpt my face a bit, but if I'm feeling it I'll switch this in for Benefits Coralista instead. Now, a girl gotta have that poppin' highlight right? I've been using the Make-up Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter all summer. To finish the look I'll pop on my fave mascara Maybelline Lash Sensational. And you're done! You got those extra 15 minutes of shut-eye and still managed to leave the house with a spot of make-up on.

What are your must-have makeup products when you want that little extra sleep?

  3. Gorgeous flatlay as always gal! If I'm pressed for time the products I absolutely have to use are pretty similar to yours - concealer, eyebrows, mascara, and something to give my cheeks a bit of colour! xx

  4. I could never do a 5 product face, I always like full glam ha. But if I really had to, ABH dip brow would be first on my list!

  5. Lash sensational is a favourite of mine at the moment! I must try out only using 5 products in my makeup routine to see which ones I use out of habit and which ones I could be without for when I'm feeling lazy!

  6. I love that Maybelline mascara too :)

  7. These products probably produce such a good natural look, and it's perfect for just day to day life stuff.

  8. I most of the time do a few product face like CC cream, setting powder for my oily skin, eyeliner pencil, mascara and lipstick and I am done. :-)

  9. I love knowing I've got a good five solid products that'll do the job in the morning meaning I can get some extra sleep! Dip brow is my fave

  11. This is super similar to my routine when I'm going for a very minimal look! I need to try out the Rimmel concealer!
