At the Preen HQ, we’re fans of makeup. We’re always on the lookout for new products or even recommendations from other people. We also get pretty busy so cutting our routine down is also a plus.
Recently, Martine Cajucom shared the products she keeps in her five-minute makeup kit. A full face we can do in five minutes? Yes, please! The products range from foundation, powder, and highlighter. So if you’re looking for a new way to do your makeup, you might like these products.
MAC Prep + Prime Essential Oils Stick
Start off with a clear base by using a primer. This one will smooth out your skin, making it easier for other products to be applied. It is also great for dry skin since it also moisturizes. This isn’t just a primer but a multi-use balm so you can use it for your hands, elbows, and other dry areas. Available at SM Aura Premier.
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
For foundation, Martine uses Fenty Beauty. It has a buildable medium-to-full coverage. It’s also longwearing, making it perfect for Philippine weather. If you use Martine as a shade match, she uses 220. Available on Sephora PH.
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
Next up is concealer and she uses one from Nars. It has a wand applicator so you can spot conceal or cover larger areas, whatever your routine calls for. These come in over 20 shades so you can also use them as contour and highlight. Available at Glorietta 4.
KKW Beauty Crème Contour Stick
Add some color back into your face with contour. The KKW contour stick has a creamy consistency so it will glide smoothly on your skin. The stick also makes it easier to apply on the right places of your face. Blend this using a dense brush or sponge. Available online.
RMS Beauty “Un” Powder
Set everything in place with some powder. This one is ultra fine so it doesn’t feel cakey on the skin. It is also light reflecting, softens skin, and absorbs oil. Feel free to use this for touch-ups too. Available online.
Glossier Cloud Paint in Beam
For a hint of blush, use Glosseir’s Cloud Paint. It comes in a variety of colors but Martine uses Beam. It is a soft peach shade, which will go well with her lipstick of choice. Available online.
Tata Harper Illuminant
Don’t forget the highlight with this luminizing cream. It is pearlescent and will leave your face looking dewy and healthy. Start off with a small amount and work your way to the desired effect. Available online.
Chanel Les Beiges
Add even more glow with this luminous powder. It is sheer and buildable but will add some shimmer to your face. Add a light dusting of this as a finishing touch. You can also add this to your lids for a wash of color. Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source.
L’Oréal Lash Paradise Mascara
After curling your lashes, add a few coats of mascara. Lash Paradise comes in three shades so find your favorite one. The formula helps with volume and length, and doesn’t smudge or flake. Available at Watsons branches.
Sunnies Face Fluffmatte Lipstick in Vacay
Once everything is done, apply some lipstick. In this case, Martine’s pick is Sunnies Face lipstick in Vacay. It’s described as a “peachy papaya” shade. It’s a step up from a nude shade that goes with all skin tones. Available at UP Town Center.
