6 Product Face

When I have the time, I am one of those people that love putting on makeup. It's fun to take the time to use my favorite products. I'm by no means an expert but I have a few looks that I love to do. My daily look is relatively simple, but I realized that I use a fair amount of products. 

I decided to challenge myself to a simple look only using a bare amount of products! At first, I said five products but I ended up needing a sixth (no one is perfect)! My goal was to look fresh, bright and put together. This look is for the days you need to be quick and get out the door fast. I like this for days that I'm just running errands or being real low key. Full disclosure, when I took the picture of this look I had a spray tan the day before!

Most of the time when I work out, I don't wear any makeup. I've found that many times after a work out I want to errands or meet friends for lunch and wish I had a bit of makeup on. Just a bit of polish would be perfect. Because this makeup look has a minimum amount of face products (only concealer) I don't mind sweating in it. 

The Products and Steps
  1. I start off with my morning skin routine (see here).
  2. BareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer (in Fair)- Use this only as needed. For me, I dotted this under my eyes to cover my dark circles. Next cover any redness that you may have, I put some around my nose. Blend this in with a beauty blender (see my review of the beauty blender here). See my review of this concealer here.
  3. Maybelline Brow Drama Pomade Crayon  (in blonde) - Swipe this crayon lightly over your brows. It fills in your brows where they look sparse. Also, the consistency of the product keeps the hairs in place! 
  4. BareMinerals Blush (in cheerful) - Using a fluffy blush brush, swipe blush along the apples of your cheeks.
  5. Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighter - Apply it below your brow bone and in the inner corners of your eyes. This step may seem unnecessary to many people and you could skip it. I love how highlighter makes me look awake. You can see my love of highlighters here
  6. Benefit Roller Lash Mascara - Apply mascara! Roller Lash curls your lashes when you apply it, so you can skip the step of using an eye lash curler. I only applied this to my top lashes but feel free to apply it to your bottom lashes as well. I reviewed this mascara here.
  7. Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil Balm (in Punch Pop) - Swipe this lip balm on your lips and your done! I can't finish a look without a little color on the lips. This lip balm/lip oil hybrid feels like chapstick but provides a little bit of color.
