Face Five Challenge

I recently got tagged to do this challenge by the sweet sweet Charlotte of Makeup By Candlelight. The challenge requires me to do a full face of makeup using only 5 products.
The rules of this tag/challenge are :
  • Use only 5 products to create a complete makeup look
  • Each different product counts as 1 product. Multipurpose products count as 1 product, such as Benetint, Bombshell the One Stick, Nars Multipurpose Stick. 
  • No palettes are allowed. No trios, quads or multi-shade palettes.
  • Tag Five others to complete the Face Five Challenge
So lets get on with it….

I am a big big sucker for concealer. Initially I thought of using my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer  all over my face instead of foundation. But as I read Charlotte’s post, I couldn’t help agreeing with the fact that foundation should be included. As I have fairly noticeable blemishes from acne+sun damage, I decided to use a high coverage foundation – Chanel Lift Lumiere . This foundation is excellent for a great coverage without the cakey-ness and heaviness.
For eyes, I used Colossal Kajal by Maybelline for the first time in my life. Infact, this is the first time I actually wore ANY kajal on my eyes (especially on my waterline). I am very proud of the result. Ecstatic. 😛
Also on eyes, I used Maybelline’s Falsies Volume Express Mascara.
Moving on to my lips, as I did kind of a smokey-eye here, I went for a nude lip. So I wore Faces’ Lipstick in Candyfloss, which is my favourite pinky-nude lip colour…like ever!

I cheated a bit with my Body Shop Honey Bronze Matte Powder in Fair Matte, as I used it to warm up my face as well as on my eyelids as a makeshift eyeshadow.
I finished my look by using the lipstick I was wearing on my cheeks as a blush (ya ya!!) …and wallah…all done!!

This tag was so much fun. It actually got me thinking about how many products do I actually use when I am getting ready normally…I was totally lost. Next time I get ready, I’ll remember to count.

You are being tagged….!

    PS – Planning to watch Oculus this weekend. Has any of you seen it yet? I am not sure whether I will be able to sit through like “a lady” while watching a horror flick in a dark room with 100+ strangers. I am sure I am going to embarrass Mr.K. I mean I LOVE horror flicks, but in safe surroundings of my living room, and with an option of a remote in my hand. Anyhoos…his fault…he booked the tickets!
    Have a great weekend people!!..
