The one with a makeup challenge.

5 product face challenge

tag 5 product face

While I love playing with makeup and using fifteen different eyeshadows to create one look, some days it's important to just get out the door. I thought this challenge was a great one - create an entire look using only five products. This was super easy to do and the final product is still polished. When I'm not talking, I can go through all the steps in five minutes.

Here are the five products I chose:
  1. Laura Mercier Mineral Powder SPF 15 in Soft Porcelain
  2. MAC Gingerly Blush (I used this for three different purposes!)
  3. Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream Hyperliner in Puppeteer
  4. Julep American Beauty Volumizing Mascara
  5. L'Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Stick in Satiny Cocoa
And here is my video if you would like to watch me get ready -

I'd love to hear your go-to products for days when you are in a rush. : )


  1. Awesome! I have been looking for inspiration for what to take with me on a flight coming up. I want to carry on so I won't be able to take much with me. Thank you!

  2. So pretty! I'm all about fast, easy makeup application. My daily five: Givenchy Photo Perfexion foundation, YSL Touche Eclat, MAC Tenderling blush, Cover Girl Last Blast mascara, and EOS lip balm!


  3. I don't think I ever use more than five products! Perhaps because I'm still too impatient to learn how to do my makeup...

    I watch your videos & still cannot figure out how to translate your instructions onto my own face. I mostly just watch with envy. :)

  4. I love the Laura Mercier powder!! Its my everyday foundation and I don't know what i'd do without it!!


  5. I don't think I *ever* use more than five products, haha. Unless it's a holiday, or I just feel like playin' around. But I'm still gonna do this!!! For me, a little face powder or if I'm out, concealer + a nice eyeshadow + mascara + a mineral lip balm with a tint or another lip product and done.

  6. I love that you managed to use Gingerly in so many ways to beautiful effect :) It's so pretty on your cheeks! I have the LM mineral powder but I find it a bit tricky to apply because it's a loose powder. I really like that it helps to control my oil (as you say), much better than liquid foundations.

  7. I've been wanting to try a Laura Mercier. Great product ideas :)
