    Lovely! I find this tag so hard! Sometimes I think I did a five product face, like in a rush in the morning, and realize I acutally used like 8 things. Lol <3 You look stunning 🙂

    I don't think I could use just 5 products, it'd be so hard!
    You look gorgeous. I've wanted NARS Sheer Glow for SO long. xo

      You might be surprised! A cream blush and an eyeshadow palette would be very versatile xx

    Such a good tag idea! Your makeup looks great! At first I thought it would be easy but after thinking about it, it was hard to choose what products would fill the last two spots! Definitely going to give it a go on my blog soon 🙂

      Yes, it's definitely hard because with just the "basics" (concealer, mascara, foundation, lip product, powder) you already have 5 items xx

    Awesome pick. You look so pretty with this minimal makeup!
    I feel like I always have to wear nothing, or go all out.
    That Milani pencil looks gorgeous, need to look into it.

      I felt like that today 🙂 I barely had time for makeup so I decided to go completely without x

    I've tried doing this tag but always ended up with seven or eight products. You look absolutely lovely! And yes, palettes do count as one item! Haha! x

    5 products is hard! I think I would go with Dior Hydralife BB Cream, Dior Amber Diamond, Korres Lip butter on my lips and cheeks and Benefit They're Real Mascara.

      Since you have dark hair I think you can get away with using a matte bronzer for a bunch of things too xx
