If I had to choose 5 makeup products...


As you already saw in this post, my makeup collection is rather large and is slowly increasing in size as I find more and more products and brands that I like and want. I came across this blog post a couple of days ago and thought to myself that it might be fun if I had to choose just five makeup products. 

Sometimes I don't have enough time to do a full face of makeup in the mornings and using five makeup products keeps it simple. I picked my products on what would give me a no makeup, makeup look.

The eyebrow palette isn't as dark as this in real life!!

So here are the five products that I would pick: 

1) Clinique - Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturiser: I have to cover up blemishes and imperfections and this is the perfect product to do so. Although it is a tinted moisturiser, it still has full coverage. It covers up all redness and blemishes really well. Rather than being a heavy duty foundation, it is light weight and my skin is able to breathe. It gives a moisturised feel to my face plus giving a natural look with an even finish. It's a perfect base!! 

2) Clinique - Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder: a powder sets makeup in place and keeps it looking topped up throughout the day. This powder has a light feel to it, stops my skin from looking shiny, removes oil from my face and works well on my skin. 

3) Tanya Burr Cosmetics - Perfect Brow Palette: personally I think that brows completely frame the face and just add that little finishing touch to the makeup look. I can't wear makeup without filling in my brows also (especially when you've plucked them just that little bit too much and are left with gaps.) I've tried a few brow products but this one I have found to be the best. It enables you to mix the colours to find your perfect shade, applies easily and even has a highlight. Plus it comes with tweezers and an angled brush.

4) Estée Lauder - Sumptuous Extreme Mascara: I love mascara! Especially this mascara! I love having long and full lashes. I can't not wear any mascara if I'm wearing makeup. I think that having a little bit of mascara on, just opens up your eyes just that little bit more. This mascara does just that. It doesn't feel sticky and it doesn't clump together. 

5) Clinique - Blush Powder in Pink Love: Blush just gives you that extra bit of colour in your cheeks and sets off your natural look perfectly. This blush colour is absolutely gorgeous and has an extra bit of shimmer in it. It gives you that healthy glow.  

What five items of makeup would you pick?
