A Five-Product Face

Monday, February 2, 2015

While I was browsing through blog posts on my Bloglovin' feed, I found this post by Allison Anderson on how she would do a "5 Product Face". I absolutely LOVED this idea, so I thought it'd be fun to create one of my own.

This set is actually based on what I wore while I was in Southern California (where desert temperatures can really dry your skin), and it all worked really well. :) These days, I'd use this formula if I had to be somewhere quickly, or if I slept late.

A Five-Product Face

1. Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream - This is the BB Cream I've been using for years. It's easy to find, wonderful to use, and can be layered up if need be.

2. Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette using "Butter Pecan" - This is a warm tawny color that I'd wear all over my eyelids (with primer, but that can be skipped if I really need to run out the door).

3. Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara - I'm actually on my fourth tube of this stuff. Fourth. That's how much I love this mascara; it's the only one I've seen that truly doesn't flake off or give me panda eyes by the end of the day.

4. Benefit Gimme Brow - These days, I've been all about defined brows, but I don't use pencil at all (plus I've had one too many bad experiences with wax...I had a pretty bad allergic reaction to some oil used after I had my brows groomed). So, I tame my brows using this brow gel, and I'm happy with the results. It's nice to use in a pinch, too.

5. Benefit PosieBalm - I owned LolliBalm first (which is kind of a lavender/orchid-tinted balm), and then picked this and BeneBalm up after I absolutely loved using the former. PosieBalm has a very sweet pink tint that's versatile and goes with everything.

How would you do a five-product face?
