Face of 5 in 5...

This week hasn't been a good week, my poor daughter has had a terrible sickness bug but fingers crossed she's on the mend now. So I've not had much time in the morning to do my makeup, but to be honest I haven't wanted to wear much either. So I've come up with 'Face of 5 in 5' minutes! Yes this only takes me 5 minutes. With the help of a couple makeup brushes. So if you're in a rush then why not give this a go, substitute the products I've used for whatever you have similar in your collection.
remember the good old saying- less is more? In this instance I agree.

Garnier BB Cream (Light)
Benefit Boi-ing Concealer (Shade 02)
Stila Convertible Colour (Peony)
A La Carte Brow Ink (Taupe)
New CID Cosmetics i-Flutter (Black)
Sigma F82
Boots No7 Concealer Brush

I've used a few BB creams but for some reason I still love the Garnier BB Cream, I'm just getting through my second sample sachet and 100% intend on purchasing a full size. I've already checked and both Boots & Superdrug currently have it on sale for £7.49 so if you're a fan stock up! I've been using my Sigma F82 to apply and then use my fingers over the top to blend in certain areas.

 *Sorry about the grotty looking Boi-ing concealer, this is well used!*

I've been reaching for my super strong under eye concealer which happens to be Benefit Boi-ing Industrial strength concealer. I use shade 02 which works perfectly with my blue-ish toned under eye area. I use the Boots No7 Concealer Brush to apply this and then gently soften the edges with my finger tips.

I think special mention goes to the main product here- the Stila Convertible is fabulous! I've been using this on my cheeks and lips, I love the natural shade which gives a beautiful natural glow to the face. Plus a fab colour to wear on the lips also. I would love to invest and buy some more of these, if you have other shades I would love some recommendations.

Then to finish off I applied a couple coats of i-Flutter and then VOILA. Such a quick simple look but very fresh and dewy, perfect for the spring!
