The 5 Minute Face


A 'what's on ma face' post on Eternal Sunday? Oh yes, we're doing this. I'm no beauty blogger, but I do love my beauty, so I thought I'd share the 5-minute face that gets me by from day-to-day. I rarely vary from this look dramatically, apart from switching up the lip colour or adding an eye product into the mix - Yano, if I'm feelin' fancy! Let me know in the comments of any products you think a novice like myself should try out and I might give them a whirl!


Lets start with base, the trickiest part of it all for an oily/combination girl, like myself. As a rule, I love a light coverage base (unless it's an evening make-up look) with a light weight feel on the skin and the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream is genius. It works beautifully on my skin with fingers or a brush and is just the right amount of lightweight/still holds some coverage base. If I happen to need a little more, I go in with my Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer practically everywhere - under the eyes, around the nose, and along my jawline to cover some pesky redness. A light bronzing is something I've invested a little extra time in lately - I need to get some cheek bones up in here - and in this post I talked about TheBalm Bahama Mama, but I also really enjoy The Bodyshop Honey Bronzer in the shade Medium Matte, not at all too 'orange' in tone, and with a light dusting its just the right amount of ompfh added into my complexion. With winter dulling down my skin, I like to swoop some TheBalm Mary-Lou-Manizer across the cheeks if I'm feeling the mood and then I like to use a cream blush to add a little extra glow and peachyness them cheeks. The Maxfactor Creamy Blush has amazing staying power - I just wish they came in more shades - am I right?? Only a little maintenance is required to keep this base in tact with a dusting of powder later on in the day, and for that I use the Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact. Is it possible for a powder to be creamy? Because this baby is a dream to apply. Even though it's not translucent (I have the shade Vanille) it's not heavy in the slightest.


Base done, it's brow time. MAC Pencil in Lingering is what I keep returning too as it's great for hair like detailing and creating a brown that isn't too strong for my round face. I don't have a natural sharp arch, so I keep it soft and let them do their own thing. In the way of mascara, I am using a little tester of the Clinique High Impact Mascara, and with a bit of eye lash curler help for my stumpy straight lashes, we've been getting along just fine. I do have my eye of the Fairdrops Scandal Queen thanks to Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup - I'm sure you've all seen the one! 

Lastly, lips! MAC Patisserie is another Anna recommendation - that girl knows her stuff - and I hate to say this phrase, but, it's the 'my lips but better' shade that we all love. A sweet not too pink, not too nude shade. 

Let me know if you want to see any more beauty posts from me, I'm willing to step out of my comfort zone for you guys!
