I enjoy reading people’s "5 product face" posts but always scoff at them thinking I’m such a product junkie I’d never manage with just five products. Well… guess what… this week I accomplished my very own "5 product face". It’s a simple makeup look that I’ve been sporting to work on a daily basis. I appreciate the fact that It makes me look put together (read: I don’t look like I got hit by a train) and it lasts all day! Here are my 5 picks:

  1. Vichy Dermablend Foundation Stick (15 Opal). I just picked this up recently and it’s awesome. I somehow keep getting paler even though it’s April and this suits my skin tone perfectly. I dab it on and blend it in with a damp beautyblender sponge. It’s buildable or it can be sheered out as needed. The finish is satin and the coverage lasts all day without looking ratchet.
  2. L’oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara. Current mascara of choice.
  3. By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock. Blends out well, lasts all day on my oily eyelids without needing a primer and offers just the right amount of colour and shine to make the eyes stand out.
  4. Anastasia Brow Wiz (ebony). Eyebrows frame the face. If I don’t have them done, I feel incomplete (cue the dramatic violin music). This thing is amazing. End of story.
  5. Burberry Light Glow Blush (Earthy). Contour and blush all in one. Brings liveliness and structure to the face, and a hint of warmth. If you have light-medium skin, you need this in your life.

What are your five go-tos at the moment?
