My 5 Minute Face

Hi girlies,

I saw this post on Viviannas blog the other day and whilst i was quickly making my self presentable to go out for lunch with my boyfriend and applying my make up in the quickest possible time, I thought i would show you the products of my 5 minute face!
♥ Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation No 7 ♥
After trying samples of shade 4, 6 and 7 i settled with and purchased a full size bottle of shade No 7. So far i am loving it! If you would like a full review on this product then please let me know.
♥ MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Light/Medium / Sigma Powder Brush ♥
The MSF is looking a little worse for wear after it falling out of my clutch bag and all over my driveaway a couple of weeks ago, bad times!
♥ MAC Studio Finish Concealer - NW20 / Sigma Blending Brush ♥
♥ Illamasqua Writhe Bronzer / Illamasqua Large Kaubuki Brush ♥
♥ MAC Painterly Paint Pot ♥
♥ Rimmel Day 2 Night Mascara ♥
♥ Accessorize Blush in Starlet / MAC 116 Blush Brush ♥
♥ MAC Colour Crafted Lipstick ♥

Firstly, I apply my current foundation which is the Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation with my fingers (as we dont have much time to fiddle with brushes!) Next, I use my Sigma E40 Blending Brush to apply concealer to my blemishes, around my nose and under my eyes. Next, I use my Sigma F30 Large Powder Brush to apply a small dusting of MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural all over my face. I then use my huge Illamasqua Kabuki brush to apply the Illamasqua bronzer all over my face, focusing on my cheeks and around my temples.
With my fingers, I take some of the MAC Paint Pot in Painterly and pop it on my eye lid and then apply lashings of the Rimmel Day 2 Night Mascara.
I would then apply the Accessorize Mineralize Blush in Starlet to the apples of my cheeks using a MAC 116 Blush Brush, which gives my cheeks a nice sheen. 
Lastly, I would then add a slick of lipstick to my lips, current go to's include either MAC Creme Cup, Viva Glam Gaga or Colour Crafted (as pictured above) and i am good to go!


So there you have it, my five minutes(ish) face! When i have more time i would usually go all out with eyeshadow, liquid eyeliner and highlighter alongside a whole load of other brushes but when im in a rush, this is enough!


What products make up your 'five minute face'?

  22. I love the colour of that blusher, it's gorgeous. My essentials are normally just a dusting of Maybelline's mineral concealer in ivory rose, and a little bit of gold/sand coloured eye-shadow for the day as I don't tend to wear much make-up during the day. xxx
