Just 5 things...

Summer is here and it is getting a little too hot to wear layers of make up. While I tend to put on a full face of make up most days, I am attempting to cut down my routine and sum it up in a matter of just 5 steps/products
Don't ask me where I got the number five from...haha

Here are my 5 items for a complete summer face, I am going for minimal - super hot days!
(melting make up is not a good look)

1. Loreal True Match Concealer
L'Oreal True Match Concealer .17 fl oz (5.2 ml)

Been buying this since I was 17, bit of nostalgia with this product. I have tried a lot of great brands but always come back to this

2. Anastasia Brow Pencil

Anastasia Brow Pencil Ash Blonde
Brows really frame the face and gives your whole face a complete look. I want to try Anastasia Brow Whiz next, but this lady definitely knows what she is doing!

3. Smith's Rosebud Salve

Rosebud Perfume Co. Lip Balm / Salve, 0.8 Ounce
Some say it is like rose scented vaseline, and it is! But I just cant get enough of this stuff. I own many balms, but I always make sure to keep this in my make up bag. Great for cuticles and last minute brow emergencies, these help give it a good shape like an ad hoc wax!

4. NARS Cactus Flower

NARS Cosmetics Cream Blush

Looks scary in the pan but applies very sheerly on the skin. Especially with a stippling brush. I actually have to rub pretty hard to get the bright color I want. Definitely buildable with a stipling brush, but gives an amazing pink youthful glow, love to layer this with NARS O but if I had to choose, this wins in my book

5. Shu Uemura Eye Lash Curler
shu uemura Eyelash Curler 1 ea

Since I am constricted to 5 items, I can't put a mascara but I think if you don't curl your lashes your mascara is hard to see anyway.
( Unless you are blessed with amazing lashes, then I am so jealous!)
Curling your lashes really widens/brightens the eyes, so I can't live without this!

What are some of your summer items? Are you trying to limit products too?

Hope you enjoyed!
