The five product face

When you wake up in the morning, you know when you leave yourself the least possible amount of time to get ready by strategically resetting your alarm clock every so often to get 5 more minutes... sometimes the makeup aspect of getting ready goes down the drain and a quick get up and go regime is in order. However maybe you're just like me and just can never be bothered! Enter the five product face.
Right, first I take the Laura Mercier SPF20 oil free Tinted moisturizer in Porcelain and when in a rush simply dot one little blob on the cheeks, chin, nose and forehead and blend with fingers, this product is really nice blended this way, or you could use a brush if your prefer, a good choice is the Real Techniques buffing brush or even the Beauty Blender. The SPF 20 is good for us girls who ALWAYS forget SPF, don't wanna be wrinkly do we.
Then next I take the Bobbi Brown corrector in Porcelain and apply under my eyes to cover my massive blue bags and on top of any redness around my nose, I just pat this in with fingers. Now I am left with a ghostly white face from being porcelained up with my base, so then I put a dab of the Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in Soft Pink on each high point of my cheek, y'know the hard bit of your cheek, and blend that in either with fingers in a rush or the Real Techniques Stippling brush, using circular movements.
Then curl your eyelashes if you can be bothered, I have to because my eyelashes never co-operate, and apply a  couple of coats of your favourite mascara, here I used the Soap & Glory Thick and Fast mascara in Black, my favourite is the L'oreal Telescopic mascara in waterproof. Then lastly a quick slick of the Mac Peach Blossom lipstick for a subtle nude lip and you're done.

  2. you look amazing :) such a flawless complexion! oh and nice blog btw =)) haha it takes me between 15-20 mins to do my makeup - full face, however the plus is that I never have to touch up (apart from the lipstick/gloss) as it lasts all day. The thing is that when you put on one thing, it leads to the other and then it all piles up. Haha I must try this *5 product face*

    1. Thanks alot, I have fallen out of the habit now, I'm using loads haha x
