The 5 item face

If you could only pick 5 items from your makeup bag to go out in, which would you choose?

I've been deliberating mine for a while, but I've finally decided on:

5 item face makeup products

Me wearing the makeup

Urban Decay Naked 2 palette - always my go to shadow palette, I used 2 shades to help define my eyes as I didn't choose eyeliner as one of my 5 items.

REN BB cream* - Perfect for light coverage, this has evened out my skin nicely, without making me look too 'done'. This is a one shade product, but somehow miraculously blends perfectly with my pale skin despite looking a scary, slightly orange colour when it comes out of the tube!

Topshop Blusher in Prime Time - This is my favourite blusher ever. I love how scary it looks in the pot but yet when blended out it gives  a lovely natural flush (just don't get carried away or you'll look like a doll!).

GOSH Growth Serum Mascara* - I'm a total convert to this mascara. It's gotten better as it's dried out a little, and gives good volume and separation with two coats.

Collection illuminating concealer - I used this under my eyes and a little on my nose to help conceal dark shadows and redness. Despite how the packaging looks, i've only been using this for a couple of weeks and love it.

What would you pick if you could only choose 5 items to do your makeup with?

  1. Omg, your eyelashes look amazing! I am constantly feeling like my eyelashes are lacking so maybe this mascara may be the one!

  3. Ooh great post! Definitely foundation and concealer... Maybe eyeshadow, blush and something for the lips. xx

  4. My products would have to be: mascara, tinted moisturiser, an eyeshadow palette (with a shade to cheekily fill in my brows and use as a liner ;) ), blush and concealer. Basically, the same as yourself!

    Your skin looks flawless in the photo- so even toned and radiant!
