Sometimes it is easy to forget that most women (or at least my friends) don’t have tons of products and they use a very minimum. I was challenged to use only foundation, lipstick, blush, mascara and one more product of my choice.
I’ve decided to make an accent on the lips, add some berry or red blush and keep the eyes very natural. I even thought of skipping the mascara at all but then decided to use a thin coat on the upper lashes.
So here are the products that I’ve chosen.
Max Factor Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 Foundation + Serum. Preview here.
There is no concealer (although I definitely need some), powder or anything else on my face so you can see what effect this foundation gives. So far I
Here are just some random makeup questions and answers, I hope you enjoy them! And I would really love to hear your answers 😉
Do you have any makeup memories from your childhood?
My Mum doesn’t really use makeup these days and she never wore a full face of makeup on a daily basis as far as I know. But in the past I remember she would wear some on the special occasions.
I would never forget the cake mascara she had and how she would use a lipstick as a blush. I also remember that she had a lot of lipsticks and I loved looking at them, occasionally I also loved using them on myself and… on the wall. But well, to defend myself I can say that I don’t remember doing that as it was ages ago.
When did you start using makeup? Do you remember what brands did you get?
I’ve started wearing makeup when I was 14, I remember how I’ve asked my parents to get me some makeup for my Birthday and they did. They got me mascara, several eye shadows and lip glosses. I can’t believe that I don’t remember what was the brand’s name though. I remember that I was buying Mary Kay and Max Factor in the past and I was really enjoying both brands.
What product changed your idea about the makeup?
I remember some time ago I had an idea of counting how much was worth the makeup that I was wearing. And last week, after I saw such post on one of the blog that I like, I though about doing the same thing.
So here is the makeup that I wore on Friday.
Firts of all I’ve used a Mineral Primer by BECCA, £34 (my review here). Then I’ve mixed two foundations – Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect in 71 Abricote Clair,£9.5 with Max Factor Xperience Foundation in 85 Deep Soapstone, £10
I’ve used Chanel Bronze Universel (£26 or £28 I can’t remember) to countorand to add some colour to my face, highlighted with BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl, £33 (review here) and added some BECCA’s Beach Tint in Grapefruit, £19 (review here).
I’ve started with
I always like to see what other people take with them when they are travelling. I was away for about a week and this is what makeup I had with me. I did not plan to wear any makeup most of the time so this is why there are very few products.
I am not going to write a lot about the products as I already reviewed most of them.
1. Max Factor Second Skin Foundation. It is my favourite right now and I’ve almost used it up as you can see. Review.
2. Revlon ColorStay Under Eye Concealer. Review
3. BECCA Beach Tints in Watermelon and Grapefruit, I love these a lot. Review
4. Mini High Beam by Benefit.
5. MAC 217 and 239 eye brushes.
6. N07 Smokey Eye brush. This is one of my favourite, will write about it later.
7.Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir, my must have. Review.

First of all here is a new video of the Chanel Coco Rouge Shine with the beautiful Sigrid Agren which features shades in Boy, Monte- Carlo, Aventure and Liberte, this video is a part of Chanel Confidential. I love Aventure lipstick the best, but as for the style – Mote-Carlo.
Also this week I was asked to answer some questions for one project so I though I would share my answers with you.
What is your favorite thing about beauty blogging?
I LOVE makeup so I am always happy to share my thoughts and discoveries with others. I also met some lovely people: Make-Up Artists, beauty journalists and beauty fanatics.
Your one must-have beauty product?
So hard to choose only one product, I am torn between a good concealer, mascara or blush.
I don’t use foundation on a daily basis but when I do, it’s usually Max Factor Second Skin.
Product you were most surprised by?
I really love
