Quick & Easy 5 product face!

I don’t wear makeup most days but some days when my skin looks fatigued or I have hormonal breakouts I like put on a bit of makeup to make myself feel less….bleuuughhhh…you know? 🙂

As I’m in a rush most morning I try to get away with the bare minimum and as quick as possible to get out for the school run. Here is my quick & easy 5 product face to enhance what you’ve got while looking very natural.

Don’t forget your sunscreen first 🙂

5 makeup product face

1. BB or CC cream as they are light and not heavy for running around after kids all day. Also full on foundation and sloppy baby kisses don’t mix great lol! I love The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil bb cream which I reviewed here Or I like this Bourjois 123 perfect cc cream which reviewed here. It’s too dark for me at the moment with this lack of summer we’re getting, I keep meaning to pick up the lighter shade.

2. Mascara is always a must because dark full lashes immediately make your eyes look more awake.This Lancome Grandiose mascara is great because it has a curved/bendy stick so makes putting mascara on quickly a doddle! See my review of that here

3. Lip balm like Vaseline or Carmex to keep lips looking moisturized and alive!

4. Highlighter to add some life to my face. I dab YSL Touche Eclat on my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose. Also around my eye area if they are looking particularly dull.

5. Concealer for days where I have big angry spots that need covering or dark circles under my eyes. This concealer by Collection is cheap as chips & one of my all time favourite concealers! Full review here

To do all that it takes me well under 5 minutes, probably more like 3 minutes! It’s quick but it does the job I think.
