My 5 Product Face

I used to spend hours doing my makeup but recently I've got a much more laid back approach and I've also been wearing less makeup in general. I don't mind this though as it means I can be out the door in just half an hour (which let's face it, is what we and our partners prefer). Today I wanted to show you the 5 products I use when I want to look healthy and polished but not overdone. 
My base is always my main concern as that's where I have the most problem areas. To give me maximum coverage without looking like I'm caked in makeup, I like to use my IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream SPF 50 to even out my redness, cover blemishes and give me a nice glowy finish. It also works as a pretty decent concealer for under the eyes. Moving onto the rest of the face, I like to add a bit of colour to the cheeks to stop me looking flat and for this, I usually use my Collection Speedy Blush Stick in Tickled Pink which is really subtle and easy to wear. I apply all of my base products with my fingers to achieve the most natural finish but also to save me having to dig out 101 brushes.

For my eyes, I like to keep it really simple and just apply some mascara. It's the easiest way to bring attention to them without having to do a full look. Recently I've been loving the L'Oreal Paris Miss Baby Roll Mascara in Black because it gives me amazing volume and length in just one coat! I also use a bit of NYX Tinted Brow Mascara to add some colour and shape to my brows.

I will always wear some kind of nude on my lips and I love using tinted products like the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors because they add a hint of colour, wear nicely and you don't need a mirror to apply them. They're the ultimate 'your lip but better' option.

So there you have my 5 go-to products for when I want to look and feel a bit more human. What are yours?

  2. Summer is always really good at reminding me that I don't need a lot of time to look put together and feel good about myself! I love your picks and I also always reach for the It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream SPF 50 when I want a little bit more coverage than usual without all the work that it usually implies!

    1. That's what happens to me too! It's too hot for a shed load of makeup. And it's so much more flattering in day light when the face looks more natural, in my opinion! Omg, yes! It applies so effortlessly! x
