I am sure all of you have been there. You are in such a hurry that you only have the time to use a few products but need to look pulled together. This is honestly my go to look. I am ALWAYS in a hurry and I have sort of perfected the 5 Product Makeup Look. Sometimes when I have a few extra minutes I add a couple things but for the most part these are the things in which I rely on for a perfected look. My go-to makeup look so to speak.
I always start with some sort of foundation. Lately I have been LOVING the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue. It is a tinted hydrating gel cream and it is honestly really great. It isn’t full coverage but it is build-able, looks natural, and feels good on the skin.
Old habits die hard and I can’t NOT finish off a foundation with a powder. I am also oily as all get-out so this helps keep the shine down. The Urban Decay Powder Foundation is brilliant. I am using the shade Fair Neutral and its PERFECT for my pale skin. It is very silky and finely milled so it doesn’t make me look like I have “cake face”, just pretty skin.
Mascara should NEVER be skipped in my opinion. Adding some oomph to the lashes can really mask the lack of other products. A little lashes go a long way and with Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara there is no such thing as little lashes!
A new lip product in my arsenal is the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask in Champagne. Not only is it highly moisturizing to the lips, but it has a GORGEOUS shimmer. It has been the only thing that has touched my lips in over a week now and I am obsessed.
Brows are the last MUST-NOT-SKIP bullet point on my checklist. I am all about quick and dirty brows lately and Jordana FabuBrow is the answer. I love the texture and pigmentation in this brow pencil and the brush on the cap helps keep hairs in line.
And here are all those products in action. The only additional products used in this post were eyeshadow and liner. If I would have skipped those things I still would have looked pulled together, just a little less fabulous! LOL
So check out the posts from the ladies of Makeup Wars! I know I am ready to see what they chose for their 5 Product Makeup Looks!
