A place to share my two loves: beauty and food.

Five Product Spring Face

Last year this post was really doing the rounds and I was always impressed that people could get their make up routine down to only five products, excluding tools. However, it has taken me quite a while to realise that over the last few weeks I have only been using these five products to give myself a natural look for work so I thought I would share. 

Laura Mercier Mineral Powder - I wrote an ode to this the other week and it really has been my base of choice for a while now. I love that you can build coverage up in different areas and the finish is so beautifully radiant. See full review here

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - Probably the most talked about product in the beauty world. I have a love / hate relationship with it, at times I think it is the perfect all-rounder and some days I find it far too thick and drying. But for £4.19 it is a very good product for covering any pesky blemishes and staying put all day. If I want a creamier product then I love my NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer, see review here, as it is perfect for dark circles and uneven skin tone. 

Revlon Bronze Highlighting Palate - This has a mixture of brown and pink shades to make it the perfect summer cheek product. The bronzed tones add enough colour whilst the slight shimmer gives you a lovely highlight all in one. Perfect for those rushed morning. It can be also used as an eyeshadow if you want more defined eyes. See full review here

L'Oreal False Lash Flutter Mascara - I absolutely adore L'Oreal mascaras and this is no exception. It has a fanned wand which makes it perfect to get the long fluttery lashes every girl dreams of in a limited amount of time. I have repurchased this numerous times and cannot believe it hasn't had its very own blog post on here! 

Maybelline Brow Drama - I recently spoke about my love for this brow product as the tinted mascara helps to define each hair as well as keeping them in place making it the perfect choice for natural brows. See full review here

What 5 products would you use? 


  1. 1. L'oreal Paris True Match Foundation
    2. Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer
    3. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
    4. MUA Pro Brow Ultimate Eyebrow Kit
    5. Rimmel Scandaleyes Extreme Black

  2. Desperate to get my hands on the LM powder. I'm still trying to cut down to 5 products! X

    1. I never thought I would. I was so surprised when I realised! x
