10 Product Face

10 product face tag makeup beauty

I have seen so many '5 product face' posts, but I'm a bit of an all-or-nothing person when it comes to makeup.  I'm either slobbing around the flat without a scrap of makeup on, or I've gone for a full face of slap, there isn't much in between.  I wear a bit less to work every day, but I have a post on the way about the makeup I wear to school.  For me, ten products is a bit more realistic, and this is the sort of thing I'd be wearing to pop to the shops on the weekend or for a relatively normal day, and it doesn't take too much time or fuss to apply.

Obviously my base is a starting point, I can't really go without primer if I want my makeup to last longer than an hour, so at the moment I'm reaching for the Illamasqua Matte Veil.  I love the hybrid gel/cream formula and it feels so smooth and cooling on my face.  My current foundation of choice is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light, which I do love, but it's still not perfect (read more about it here, here and here).  On the other hand, in my opinion the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer is perfect (see me compare it to the Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer here) and I use it to cover any blemishes or under-eye circles.  A quick dusting of the Make Up For Ever HD finishing powder sets everything and keeps it in place.

Even though this foundation has light/medium coverage so it allows some of my natural colour to show through, I still like to use Urban Decay Afterglow powder blush in Video on my cheeks to make me look a bit healthier.  I am having a bit of a highlighter moment so, of course, The Balm Mary Loumanizer is swept across my cheekbones, brow bone and cupids bow (read more about this beautiful highlighter here).

For my eyebrows, it's parred back for my 10 product face.  I sacrificed my beloved Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade (read more here) for the Urban Decay Brow Tamer which adds a hint of colour and hold at the same time (see my comparison post with Benefit Gimme Brow here).

For lips, I am still in love the with the NYX Soft Matte lip cream in Stockholm (read about it here), which is a beautiful matte nude and looks perfect with any makeup look.

On my eyes, I basically follow this every day eye make up routine using the Sephora liner smudged out across my top lashes and a few coats Benefit Rollerlash on my lashes.
