5 Product Face Challenge

5 Product Face Challenge

I’m not going to lie when I first contemplated the 5 Product Face Challenge it filled me with fear. I usually have an 8 or 9 (or 10 – 15…) product face so this was always going to be tough. Luckily I was working at home today so my panic was quite short-lived!

So, in order, my 5 product face is as follows:

  • Rimmel ‘Lasting Finish’ foundation.  Base was my obvious first choice as, due to my rosacea, I would never ever consider a make up look without foundation.
  • Collection ‘Lasting Perfection’ concealer. My under eye bags are dreadful and I think concealer under your eyes is one of the easiest way to brighten your whole face.
  • Soap & Glory ‘Archery’ eyebrow pencil. As a blonde with very fair eyebrows I *needed* brow products!
  • Sleek ‘Sweet Cheeks’ blush palette (I used ‘Cupcake’). After covering my rosacea redness, I needed something to put some life back into my cheeks.
  • Rimmel ‘Scandaleyes’ mascara. Again, blonde hair is a curse!

I don’t think this look is too bad for 5 products, but I definitely won’t be making the 5 product face a regular thing. I doubt this would last long without my primer and powder and I miss eyeshadow and lipstick!

What would you choose for your 5 product face?

Soap & Glory Archery and One Heck Of A Blot

I love Soap & Glory as a brand (their Breakfast Scrub will change your life, no hyperbole) but I had never tried their make up. And now I seriously feel like I’ve been missing out.

Archery is a double-ended eyebrow shaper. One end has a fine ink brush that you use for filling in brows and giving them a bit of colour, while the other end is a waxy pencil that tames brows and gives them a more dramatic colour change. On most days I just use the pen as it’s more subtle for work and I am thrilled with it. It looks natural and doesn’t budge all day. I got ‘Love Is Blonde’ which is a great match for me.

One Heck Of A Blot is a mattifying powder, which is apparently one powder for all skin tones. I apply it in the morning after I’ve applied all my other make up and – miraculously – my face is still intact at the end of the day. I reapply at lunch time if I need to, but on the whole it keeps me matte all day.

You can buy Archery HERE and One Heck Of A Blot HERE.

I am a total Soap & Glory make up convert!
