The 5 product face

You’re in a rush and only have 5 minutes to get ready, what do you need? A full proof makeup routine that will last you the day, yet not looked like you’ve caked it on. If I have hardly any time to get ready I’ll totally use this routine, the fact it only requires 5 products is super great as well!
I’m not going to bore you and talk a lot about this base combo, because I know I’ve featured it on my blog way too much but that is the The Body Shop Instablur and Nars Sheer Glow. The longevity is fab and the products just make me feel so good in my skin; I think that’s a definite mark of a good beauty product. I know bronzer on its own can look slightly muddy however applied lightly I think it can give a really nice ‘awake’ look – something very much needed when you are in a rush. 
A Soap and Glory gem I’ve only recently managed to repurchase (I have no idea how I have managed to go without it) is the brow archery, it’s perfect for quickly filling in the sparse areas of my brow and I find I don’t need to use anything else. Along with the Maybelline lash sensational mascara it is the perfect quick, no mess eye routine. If you have a bit more time you could always add a little of the Nars Laguna bronzer as eyeshadow, as bronzer can make a great alternative brown shade if you don’t have one. That’s your 5 product face complete! I totally forgot to include lip balm *questions what I was thinking there* although I’m sure we all have one knocking about in a bag somewhere. I actually really like this simple ‘no makeup’ makeup look and it just goes to show you don’t need loads of products to still achieve a great look!

    Thank you! The Laguna bronzer is just the best, it has to be one of my favourite makeup products!
