Creating a wearable everyday look with only five products? Challenge accepted. What made the cut you ask? BB cream, concealer, eyebrow pencil, mascara and a lip and cheek tint. The mascara and eyebrow pencil were no-brainers. I do leave the house without them, when I go to the gym or to the supermarket on a Sunday morning for example, but I feel so much more confident with a proper statement brow and accentuated lashes. I did contemplate to ditch the base product all together and go for a lip and separate cheek product instead, but a bad skin day got in the way, and I decided, I’d rather make good use of a multiple than to scare you off with my irritated skin. The concealer was yet another no-brainer. I have naturally dark circles under my eyes that do need at least a bit of coverage before I can consider any makeup look a success. The lip and cheek tint was one of those products that haven been lying around in my Muji drawers for months without me ever using it, but I thought the five product face would be the perfect occasion to finally tap its full potential. While I actually quite liked it as a blusher, applying it to the lips was rather difficult (I had to dab it on as opposed to rub it in, in order for it to show up on my lips), and I’m not sure whether it’s necessarily a colour I’d want to wear on a daily basis, but it served its purpose and that’s all that matters.
To really make the most of this no-makeup makeup look, I decided to pair it with a very androgynous, monochrome outfit that wouldn’t need a full on face to make a proper impact. I can’t wait to show you guys, so watch this space if you want to find out what sartorial choices I made to match the face.
Do you think the look is everyday appropriate? It would certainly save me a lot of time in the morning…
