Summer Beauty Edit: 5 Product Face

What with the weather being so humid lately I've definitely been keeping my make up routine easy and my base light. As I'm a bit of a product fiend and try to whack on as many as I can, I thought it would be fun to limit myself to just 5 and see how I got on, this is what I came up with.

Maybelline The Rocket Volume Express Mascara

First I evened out my skintone with my Diorskin Nude BB Cream, I was having a good skin day so I didn't need any concealer, but I did need to camouflage my dark circles, so I turned to my Nars Radiance Creamy Concealer, which is amazing! This time I decided to miss out powder and I moved straight onto bronzer. For this I chose my current favourite the Dior Nude Tan Paradise Duo in Coral Glow, this beauty is prefect for contouring. To add a bit of colour I used the other half of this duo which is a gorgeous coral blush, it gives a lovely soft flush to the skin. I definitely recommend this duo, plus I think it's limited edition. It might not be out for much longer so you better be quick! I normally always wear eyeshadow but today I decided to go bare and just wear mascara. My mascara pick was the Maybelline The Rocket Volume Express Mascara, which I have to say in hindsight was probably the wrong choice, it did flake and smudge during the day - not good! For my lips I went for a bight lip product, so I keep the rest of my face quite neutral. Enter Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Red Sunshine.

 Downsizing the amount of products you use is definitely helpful if you're in a rush or are going on holiday, but I don't think I could go without eyeshadow on a permanent basis, I do love my Stila In The Light palette haha.

How many products do you use on a daily basis? Is there anything you can't be without?

XOXO Claire

  3. It would be a hard choice between concealer and brow pencil! I'm sure I use about ten products a day!
