Simple Face Of The Day. Bright Lips

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 really love it and will write a review later.

NARS Mounia blush. Unfortunately I forgot that it’s no longer available but you can try any blush you want. Rouge Bunny Rouge Florita would also look nice with this look. You can also try Illamasqua’s Shimmer Blusher in Morale.

And you definitely don’t need to use it as heavily as I did, I just love my blush…


One of my favourite lipstick from  my collection – Illamasqua Atomic. It is an absolutely gorgeous fuchsia with blueish sheen.


I’ve used a very thin coat of mascara just on the upper lashes. I’ve used my current favourite mascara which is BECCA The ultimate mascara. And you know what?! Every woman  should try a tubing mascara! It is brilliant!

I also have a thin line of dark brown eye pencil near the lash line which I’ve smudged with my fingers. I’ve used Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir.

Ok… If I am completely honest, I’ve also used this eye brow pencil by Benefit on my  eye brows lightly.

And that’s it!

I hope you like it.
