I first saw the 3 Product Face on Shari’s blog, but prior to that, I did a 4 Product Face. I think that we do these challenges to prove to everyone that we CAN SO live with the bare minimum, we just want a bit of fun!
Then again, it could just be that so many people right now are in way too much of a hurry.
Anyway, this is what I came up with. Initially, I wanted to use eyeshadow or a liner, but I opted for a base instead. As much as I love this Graymelin CC Base Cream*, I think I made a mistake! You’ll see why in a bit.
Instead of eyeliner, I opted to use mascara. Everyone yammers on about how that and a bold lip are all you need to look polished so I wanted to test that theory with the Le Métier de Beauté Anamorphic Lash Mascara, which I don’t reach for for volume… but one that I feel most comfortable wearing.
Then, for lips, I have MAC’s Plumful, which has the right amount of pigment for a morning at the textile market and printer, aka my errands for the day.
I always thought that a bold lip could instantly make a bare face look 10x more put together, but somehow a vampy or red lip seemed to be inappropriate. Plumful gives just the right amount of color without being ostentatious.
I look so sleepy. Granted, I really was, but still. I think a bit of eye makeup could have made me look more awake. You can tell from this picture how little mascara does for me, although I should note that my eyes were even smaller pre-mascara.
There’s nothing much to say about this, truthfully! I think the lipstick is nice. My face looks strangely bare, even though that’s more product than I used to wear on my face until recently when the relentless makeup bug bit me.
What would you wear for a 3 product face? 🙂
