4 Product Face

I have to say that it is very rare that I go only 4 products on my face, mainly because I feel as if there is no point and may as well just go the full-glam. However saying that, if I'm off for a brunch hungover or having to pop to the shops in central London where I know I could bump into someone, I like to atleast look somewhat semi-presentable and the below products ultimately save me. 

First of all as my base I love the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream  which I did a full review on here . I absolutely love this base because it is lightweight, moisturising and gives enough coverage to not require blusher or bronzer to add more dimension but still manages to even out my skintone. I tend to either use my hands I know scandal or my Zoeva Buffing Brush as I find a beauty sponge tends to soak up too much of the product as it is quite water/gel based. 

The one product I think I look the most bizarre without, apart from my brows which we'll come to later is mascara. I have quite light lashes so I have to use my Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara to give me a bit of volume and length. 

Like I said above, I have to have my brows done if I'm leaving the house. I have quite straight yet light brows and they look abnormal if I don't try and shape and fill them in. The only product I ever use is the Hi Impact Brows Eye and Brows Perfecting Palette*. I absolutely love this palette and although there is only one shade I use (the very left blonde shade) I just love the powder and how easy it is to work with. I really recommend this brow palette, and I think I'll be handing mine to my flatmate once I've finished my shade so she can have the other!

I tend to find lipstick looks really weird on me if I don't have a full face of lipstick on, therefore I try and go for very sheer and nearly lip-shade lip product which is most likely my Clinique Nude Pop Lipstick. I find this extremely moisturizing and it just adds a little bit more colour to my face. 

Let me know in the comments below what 4 products you would include in your 4 product face! 


  1. Love that lipstick shade, will have to pick it up!

  2. I still need to master my semi-presentable look! It's either full time recluse or "considers herself a fairy princess". Haha :'D Xx

  3. The bareMinerals complexion rescue is the best for a minimal makeup look!

  7. The complexsion rescue sounds so good, I've been trying to switch to a lighter base so think I need to get a sample of it!


  8. I would include Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, MAC blush in Blushbaby, Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara and a liquid lipstick!

  9. The BareMinerals Complexion Rescue would also be my top pick for these easy makeup days! I also love to apply it with my fingers by the way! I love the look of the Clinique Nude Pop Lipstick as well!


  10. I definitely agree that a base product, brows, mascara and lip are probably my 4 must-haves, I feel particularly lost without brows and mascara. I can't believe I've lived so long without that mascara, I really need to repurchase it!

  11. Wow, can't believe you managed to keep it at only 4 products! Although I must say, if I'm just popping into town real quick I'd probably do the same, maybe add some concealer and a little bit of bronzer too. I could never keep it down at 4 products, I'm sure!

  12. Even with minimal makeup, I cannot be without mascara!
