At one point in my life, a few years ago, I actually used foundation every day even though I hated it. Then I thought to myself, why am I putting this junk all over my face if I don't want to? To be fair, it was Chanel, so not exactly junk, but you know what I mean.
My list of makeup and beauty products (that I actually use) is small, and because of that I splurge and buy Chanel most of the time. I do have a drawer full of things I've acquired over the years but barely use any of it. The photos below show the products I use on a daily basis.

Morning: When I wake up I use L'Oreal Youth Code Texture Perfector Serum and L'Oreal Youth Code Texture Perfector Day/Night Cream followed by my makeup. I start with Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush (Rose Ecrin) on my cheeks followed by Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow (Spices), and CoverGirl LashBlast Clump Crusher Mascara. I finish up with Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipstick. I love this lipstick because it's pretty much like colored chapstick, I have a few shades: Fiction, Espirit, Deauville, Elise, Bel-Ami and Bonheur. When Summer comes I may add bronzer back into the mix depending on my mood. [the blush and eyeshadow are my backups since my current ones are almost empty]
Night: I remove my makeup with Caudalie Make-Up Remover Cleansing Water (with Shiseido Cotton pads) and follow that with L'Oreal Youth Code Texture Perfector Serum and L'Oreal Youth Code Texture Perfector Day/Night Cream just like in the morning. Nice, simple, effective!
And there you have it, my 5 minute beauty routine, I rarely deviate from this but sometimes I do try something a bit different with my makeup like a different eyeshadow (pretty much the only change).
