5 Days of a 5 Minute Face

As mentioned in my last post Carmindy’s 5minute face is essentially my go to daily look. When I stepped back & thought about that statement I decided it would be interesting to challenge myself to actually do a 5minute face for 5days.

I decided I would change things up each day using a different highlight, shadowliner (eyeshadow as eyeliner), & lippie. The base, blush, & mascara remained the same.

  • Elf Mineral Infused Primer
  • WetnWild Photofocus Foundation Rose Ivory
  • Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Mood Exposure
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Mascara

Day 1

  • Highlight: Farsáli Rose Gold Elixir
  • Shadowliner: Sunbleach Filter Selfie
  • Lippie: Merle Norman Chubby Lip Crayon Candy Stick

Day 2

  • Highlight: Benefit Girl Meets Pearl
  • Shadowliner: Sunbleach Filter Sandy Toes
  • Lippie: Sweet & Shimmer Lip Crayon

Day 3

  • Highlight: Anastasia Moonchild Lucky Clover & Blue Moon
  • Shadowliner: Pantone Watercolor Chinois Green
  • Lippie: Clinique Black Honey

Day 4

  • Highlight: Anastasia Moonchild Pink Hart
  • Shadowliner: Pantone Watercolor Pale Mauve
  • Lippie: Bite Rhubard

Day 5

  • Highlight: Anastasia Moonchild Purple Horseshoe
  • Shadowliner: Rock Nudes Eggplant
  • Lippie: Laura Mercier Devotion

Favorite Day:

This is a toss up between Day 1 & 2. The elixir & liquid highlight worked best for quick application & big payoff.


Powder highlight needs a little extra work to get right. See Day 4, not bad, but not enough bang for buck.

I feel best when I warm up my face, not cool it down. A pinch of bronzer would go a long way with Days 3 & 5.

The natural light that pours in through our front screen door gives me the best face. If I could just stay in that light all day!

Sometimes I need brows more than liner.

Carmindizing is truly a great daily look, but also the perfext starting place for building a full face makeup look. I mean, who doesn’t want to look like this everyday!?
