5 product face for Autumn


There are so many times where I find myself struggling with the idea of whether to do my makeup or 
not. Debating whether to go full glam and use 95% of my makeup collection, or just do my eyebrows. 
This post is somewhere in between. I challenged myself to pick out and use only 5 products from my 
collection to create the perfect look for autumn. I have done post like this before in the past, however 
this is definitely my favourite since I love autumn so much!

If I had to choose between foundation and concealer I would definitely choose concealer. As soon as 
I apply foundation I want to do the most dramatic intense, make up look that I can think of. When 
I'm in a rush and want to use as few products as possible I will just choose a concealer. The Rimmel 
lasting radiance concealer is perfect for covering up and imperfections or uneven tones on the skin, 
as well as highlighting the underage area. This gives the perfect amount of coverage whilst uplifting 
the skin and giving the appearance of a full nights sleep even if you haven't.

Since I have very fair skin and even when I've been out in the sun, I look like I've been living under 
a rock for my entire life. I don't have a natural sunkissed or bronzed glow, so I have to fake it. The 
CYO when the sun don't shine bronzing powder is perfect for when I don't want to wear a lot of 
makeup, because it's the perfect shade for my skin tone but still adds enough colour and definition 
to my face and neck. I love how this still looks natural and like my own skin, but better.

I wouldn't usually apply a blush if I was in a rush but the L'Oreal lifes a peach blush helps ties 
everything together. As it's a peach shade it compliments the bronzer and works together to add some 
colour to my skin. It's lightweight and easily buidiabel, depending on how much intense you want, as 
well as having a light amount of shimmer throughout to add a glow and luminosity to the skin. 

After I've added a few products to my face I don't want to neglect my eyes. Instead of doing a full cut 
crease with bright eyeshadow shades from the latest palette, I choose to focus on appearing more 
awake. My all time favourite mascara is the Natural Collection volume mascara. The wand helps to 
coat each individual lash and add the perfect amount of volume without looking thick and clumpy. 

To complete my look and shape my face I always make sure to fill in my brows, even if it's a light 
amount, it make the biggest difference. I love to use the L'Oreal brow artist xpert brow pencil. This 
allows you to have full control over the amount of product you use. If I have a full face of makeup on 
I often go for a more full and defined brow, however when I wear less makeup I opt for a softer more 
natural brow. I also love how this comes with a spoolie to even out any excess product.

  6. That's a beautiful peachy blush, I might have to track that down as I don't think I have any shades like that at present.
