Throughout the years I have tried and tested a ton of different makeup products. I have had a lot of favourite products, I’ve changed up my routine a million times and I have changed my mind about products more often than not. I have quite a wide selection of makeup products and I always enjoy switching up what I use. Having just one of each product just isn’t for me. However, there are a few products I just love so much, I wouldn’t mind if that was the only product I had from that category. Today I’m going to shade 5 products I would keep if I could only keep 5 makeup products. If you’re interested in finding out which products I like so much I would keep, make sure you continue reading!
Let’s start off with the base. One of the five products I would keep if I really, really had no other choice, would be the Diorskin Star foundation. I just think foundation is essential in a makeup look, especially if you are going to go all out with your eyes and/or lips. I also just really like the way it makes my skin look and feel so that’s why I would keep a foundation.
I chose for this foundation because of its amazingly gorgeous texture, the scent is really nice, the colour matches my skin pretty well and I like the amount of coverage it has. I also think the finish is just perfect for everyday. This is definitely my favourite foundation and therefore it deserves a spot in my 5-piece collection!
The second product I would keep is the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil. Brows are just a key part of every look. Except if you already have really amazing brows I think a brow product is essential in any makeup collection, no matter how big of small your collection might be.
I would go for this pencil by Benefit because it’s super easy and quick to work with, the colour matches my brows perfectly and it’s just pretty much impossible to not make your brows look their best with this pencil. It’s the best brow pencil I have ever tried and I seriously don’t want to go without it anymore.
Since I’m a huge eyeshadow lover I would definitely keep an eyeshadow palette. The one I would keep would be this Tarte Eyes & Cheek palette because its one you can use everyday. You can use it to create a very natural look, but you can also turn it into a more special or party look. The shadows are very pigmented and versatile and definitely one of my favourites.
Another reason why I would keep this palette in particular is because it also has a blush in it. This is a very natural looking matte blush that will look good with everything, which is why I think it’s the perfect one to have if you only have such a small collection.
A makeup look without mascara just isn’t a makeup look in my book, which is why I would keep a mascara in my five piece collection. My favourite mascara of all time has to be this Lancome Grandiose mascara. It has a slightly curved wand which makes it super easy and comfortable to work with, the wand has really nice bristles, it separates the lashes really well and it adds a ton of volume.
I also think that this mascara is literally the best at keeping my lashes look voluminous and full all day long, which is something a lot of other mascara’s do struggle with. It also isn’t a very dry formula which is why this mascara just won’t dry out and I think that is a big plus as well!
The last product I would keep is a lip product. Since I’m usually not too big on lip products this might be a surprising pick for me, but this lip product is just one I cannot live without anymore. It’s suitable for everyday, every look, every occasion and it feels so incredibly nice on the lips. It’s all I was ever looking for in a lipstick and more.
The lipstick I’m talking about by the way is by YSL in the shade Beige Blouse. It’s the perfect everyday nude colour that everyone should have. It’s a-maze-ing!
And that pretty much concludes today’s post! I hope you enjoyed reading it
and be sure to let me know which five products you would keep!
