Revisited: If You Could Use Only 3 Makeup Products

I was browsing Makeup4all the other day, and stumbled across this post from 2010. The point was to choose only three products I could use for my makeup. I was actually surprised by my choices, so thought I would do the same thing six years later.

If You Could Use Only 3 Makeup Products revisited mascara eye liner and blusher

So here is what I would go for and why:

Eye liner (ArtDeco Long Lasting Liquid Liner 01 Black)

I just have to have some kind of definition for my eyes, black liquid eye liner or a brown eye pencil, or even some eye shadows. But if I could use only one product- that would be this. These days I am loving ArtDeco, but there are lots of other nice ones I like.

Face Of The Day. September 2013

Today I’ve decided to keep my makeup minimal, as I will spend most of my time (and money, le segh) choosing the items for my home makeover.

So here is the makeup that I’ve used:
Face Of The Day Rouge Bunny Rouge Benefit No7 Ellis Faas AnastsiaAnd there are quite a few Rouge Bunny Rouge products as I am currently working on one feature for them, I will let you know when it’s done, for sure.

Face

I’ve started with the brand’s Aqua Primer, it has a lovely light texture that smooths the face and doesn’t clog the pores. Then I have applied Benefit’s Erase Paste under the eyes which is brilliant for counteracting the blue tones. I have finished off with Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Flawless face Powder Precious Velvet in Piano Forte. It has a medium coverage and feels light on the skin. I don’t usually use powders but am experimenting with some at the moment.

To give myself some glow, I have dabbed Benefit’s High Beam  on the cheek bones, under the brow bone, above the upper lip and on the bridge of the nose.  From

Simple, Office Friendly, Face Of The Day

Today I opted for a very simple and minimal makeup, both in terms of colours and the quantity of products.  Today it’s all about work and I am not going out anywhere afterwards, so  I was not in the mood for any experiments, and , quite frankly, did not have time.

Face

I’ve used Rouge Bunny Rouge Home Time Defying Foundation Skin Sanctuary which I promise to review soon. I totally forgot that I had the samples of it, the post is already in the process. I then added some Benefit’s Dandelion  to brighten up the complexion  and BECCA’s Beach Tint in Raspberry as a pop of colour on the cheeks and on top of the lip balm.

 Eyes

I have used Benefit’s powder eye shadows in Leggy and Dandy Brandy which are very soft and smooth, and blend beautifully. Lighter shade all over the lead and darker shade for definition. I have also lined the eyes with a black (and not brown, shocker!)  Clarins Crayon Khol, smudged it
