Blogmas Day Eight ~ My Face With Five Products Challenge

Five items. Five minutes.

I think this post could be aimed at beauty addicts who like to mix around their beauty regime and also may not have the time in the morning to apply an extensively full face of makeup (I.e would rather opt for a few extra minutes in bed) or you have only five minutes to get ready literally, and need a 'go-to' quick regime that won't let you leave the house looking naked on the face.

If you're in a rush, you want something that works, gives you coverage and doesn't take long..these five items are pretty much that. (Please note, you will not be getting the flawless, completely done up look some might desire) - but it works, it's quick and it's simple.

Firstly I start off with my base, instead of trying to fit in a foundation, I thought about maybe a good coverage concealer? NARS Creamy Concealer in Medium does wonders to my face, the coverage is great, it doesn't cake, and it can leave your face looking like you actually have foundation on. I would apply this using my Real Techniques Buffing Brush from the Core Collection 
Next I would curl my eyelashes using my NYX Eyelash Curler.. Curling your eyelashes makes such a difference to your eyes once mascara is applied, as mentioned in my brush collection post I used to never really understand the whole makeup tools hype, I never curled my eyelashes or applied makeup with brushes... Curling your eyelashes really does make that extra difference (just don't do it after you've applied mascara because you'll rip your lashes out) 
The fourth product would be Clinique Lash Power Mascara it's my current favourite mascara and it opens up your eyes and makes you look more awake.. 
The fifth would be something for my lips, something moisturising but pretty.. I opted for the Tarte Lip Shine in Smitten it's one of my more subtle lip products but because it's both glossy, moisturising and with a hint of colour I thought it would work well with my pulled back neutral & natural look. 

What would be your 5 products if you had to choose?
