Five Product Face - June 2019

At the start of this year I did a Five Product Face post, all about completing my usual makeup with only five products. However since that post, I am using different products more regularly so I thought I would do an updated version with current products. These products are regular features on the blog but also in my weekly Instagrams. Now the basic premise is pretty much the same, heavily relying on a face palette. Let's crack on!


Like last time, this kind of look involves using some products for more than one step. So to prime my eyes, I used the L’Oreal Infallible More Than Concealer. I’ve mentioned before that you really only need the tiniest amount, and for your eyes you need even less! It is quite a thick concealer as well. I used a brush to blend it across my eyelid, and then patted with my finger.

For my eyes and later my face, I used my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked. This palette was limited edition but they do have a palette with two powders and a blush. I used my Luxie 205 Tapered Blending Brush to apply the slightly darker powder to act as my transition shade. Then using my Illamasqua Eyeshadow Brush, I applied the bronzer shade all over the lid. This is basically what I did last time, but the Hourglass shades are slightly shimmery or ‘glowy’ so you do still get a different look.

Of course I used my new favourite Benefit Roller Liner to do my cat flick, and then after curling my eyelashes I used my Beautaniq Nourishing Mascara. After applying concealer, using the Illamasqua brush again, I lightly blended some of the bronzer shade underneath.


Again I used the L’Oreal concealer for its actual purpose, an applied another tiny amount to under my eyes. You really are getting your money’s worth out of this product. I then took the Hourglass palette again for the rest of my face. I used the ‘matte’ blush first and then lightly touched my brush into the shimmery one for a touch of shimmer.

I used the bronzer shade in the usual E-3 method. Taking the Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Contour Brush, I lightly swept some of the highlighter shade on my cheekbones. I didn’t want too much as I had already used the shimmery blush. 

Finally, I used my Spectrum A00 Powder Brush to sweep some of the lighter powder across my face. This powder is very finely milled so you don’t get a powdery finish. 


Last time I used the CYO Two Clever By Half Lipstick & Lipliner, but I wanted to use all different products so I was brave, and did my lipstick without lip liner. I know. Shocking. It’s fine, we can get through it together. For lipstick, I used my Too Faced Melted Matte in Sell Out. I have worn traditional lipstick without a lip liner before, so it will be interesting to see how a liquid lipstick lasts without it. 

Can you do your makeup routine in five products?

  2. These are great products, i use L'Oreal products a lot and I also have a Too faced Melted Matte Lip paint. I just think that the too faced lip paint leaves your lips looking well moist.
