Five Product Face

I'm not really sure if this is a tag of some sort, but the Five Product Face basically challenges you if you can do your whole face using minimal makeup.  I did a very simple look for this tag:

I used Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation as my base. It's a great foundation, but it doesn't last as long as I want to. Enter Maybelline Dream Matte Powder - this sets my foundation so that it would last longer. Also, as the name implies, it mattifies my face quite nicely. I did my usual brow routine using MAC Espresso eyeshadow - I'll do a tutorial on this soon, I promise! I don't use eyeshadows on an everyday basis, so I just used Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara which is.. okay. For a high-end mascara, I don't think it's anything special. I like the formula though - not too dry & not too wet. It doesn't hold the curls very much, so that was kind of pathetic. Finally, I used Topshop Cream Blush in Head Over Heels - a bright pinky-coral that gives me a very natural flush. I also used it on my lips.

Are you a beauty minimalist? :)



  1. This is a cool idea. Siguro ganun na lang gawin ko pag morning, grab 5 and make a face. Minsan kasi when Im rummaging through stuff parang tumatagal pa ako sa morning.

  2. You look so pretty! I still haven't tried this challenge, I'm going to write it on my agenda xx

  3. I don't think I could ever use only 5 products haha, except for on a lazy sunday. You look gorgeous, Head Over Heels is my only blush from Topshop & it is so pretty & bright but looks so natural on you!
    Following you back :)

  4. It looks very natural!

  5. Love that cream blush and the fact it can double as a lip colour! I tried doing this once but I think I counted 4 products for my eyes alone :p
