My 5 minute face! | Makeup Play

Whenever I go out I never have any qualms taking my sweet ass time to get ready. If I can intricately work on my face for two hours, I wouldn't mind it. Not to say there are random moments when I have no time for anything and I need to look polished. The products I use for my 5 minute face are tried and tested, giving me the best results with the least amount of time and work. It's really simple and fresh-faced and I think very pretty and girly!

 Garnier BB Cream in Light/Medium
Benefit Erase Paste - Salmon Concealer (under eyes, salmon corrector)

Flirt! Eyeshadow in Coconutty

Benefit They're Real Mascara

NARS Blush in Dolce Vita

Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

Garnier BB Cream gives such a glowy beautiful finish and completely evens out my skin tone. I apply it with my fingers to get the most coverage - and of course because it's extremely fast. My Benefit Erase Paste is my darling and my savior because of its peachy/pink tones. I have very dark under-eye circles and this baby makes my eyes a little bit more bearable to look at. The one thing I will never forget to do is neglect my eyebrows because the eyebrows really shape the face... my Flirt! eyeshadow in Coconutty does the trick every time (Flirt! cosmetics is exclusive to Kohl's.) I just recently purchased Benefit They're Real Mascara and I'm so so so in love. I only got the trial version because it was only $10. The original is $22 and I just couldn't get myself to pay that much but it really lengthens my eyelashes making them more doll-like. NARS blush in Dolce Vita is the perfect "I just got out of the cold and my face is trying to get back its color" blush. It is so so so beautiful. Revlon lip butter in Peach Parfait is my favorite lip butter and probably favorite lip product EVER. It is so natural on my lips and has the hydrating factor of a lip balm and the glosiness of a lip gloss. I actually have about 5 of these lying around everywhere.
