The Five Product Face

You know the mornings where it is a toss up between an extra 5 minutes in bed or having nice makeup? Well those mornings are quite often for me with the early mornings for school and work and normally the latter loses and I hit the snooze button. However sometimes I still want to look as if I have made an effort, so for me it is really important that I have a super fast makeup routine which is as minimal as possible. Enter the Five Product Face. This is basically a super condensed version of my Everyday Makeup Routine, so therefore a lot quicker.

The first product I use is concealer, and as much as I love my No7 Instant Radiance Under Eye Concealer, it doesn't cover redness or spots so I typically would go for the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in a rush. It has the perfect consistency for spots and under the eyes and has amazing coverage.

Next up is bronzer since I am very pale, even more so at this time of the year, and my skin is naturally a little bit red/pink on my cheeks so bronzer is more important for me. Of course I am going to use the NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna to add some warmth and colour to my skin.

One of the steps that I don't like to miss is my brows. I fill them in with a dark brown powder from an old Rimmel palette which helps to add definition and colour to my very fair brows. I don't bother to set them as they are normally relatively good at staying in place after just brushing them through with a spoolie.

The penultimate step is mascara, another thing I don't like to skip. As I have very fair lashes naturally I like to make sure that I have a good coating of mascara on my lashes. Recently I have been using the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara and I have really liked it. It adds length, volume, it separates my lashes and the best thing is it doesn't fall off of my lashes half way through the day and leave a black mark underneath my lower lash line. So far so good.

Finally a lip product and for a really quick makeup look, I love using the Nivea Pearly Shine Lip Balm. This adds a subtle sheen to the lips which can be built up to more of an intense shine and the colour is a really pretty pinky nude.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what five products I would apply in a rush. What would you use if you needed a speedy makeup look?
