My Five Product Face

Some mornings, I have my act together and wake up early and have time to focus on my makeup. Other mornings, I oversleep and rush out the door. For those mornings, I put on what I like to call my "five product face." It's literally just five products that I find do the job for me in a pinch. Easy enough, right?
  • Philosophy A-Z cream: I find this to be hydrating while providing a light coverage (I don't need too much) and also has SPF 20. It conceals, covers, and protects. Perfect for saving time!
  • Nars "The Multiple" in 'Portofino': I swipe a bit of this on the high points of my cheeks and this blends in no time!
  • Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Eyeliner: The minute eyeliners started coming out in pen form, I rejoiced because it allowed me to create quick cat-eyes without the mess! I love this one by Maybelline because it's thin, dark, and does not flake (super important for my monolid eyes)
  • Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara: I literally only need one coat of this mascara for my eyes too look open and awake! I usually get waterproof versions of mascaras to keep my short stick-straight-down and sparse lashes lifted and volumized. 
  • Dior Addict "Glow" lipstick: This is seriously just a very good lipstick to have when you're on the go and don't have a mirror handy. It will pigment your lips using your skin's natural pH (so the color will look a bit different on everyone). Check out my review of this product here
What items do you use when you're on the go?


  1. Maybelline definitely has one of the best mascaras. I have tried the high end ones, but I still always go back to Maybelline! :)

  2. That Dior lippie is amazing! I just ran out and need to hit Sephora stat. :)

  4. Oh the mascara sounds wonderful! :)

    I'm currently going through and using up all the trial and travel size samples I have of mascara in my bathroom cabinet before buying more - and I've started using a new one I'm not very impressed with after the last one was so good, haha!
