FOTD: When Less Is More

Hi ladies,

I feel I haven't done a FOTD in centuries.
I never seem to have time or when I'm ready to go my camera is not charged.  Mmm excuses excuses!

I tried something different the other night. I did a little test of applying the less amount of products I could get away with.

This is the result:


I was pleasantly surprised with the result and I proved to myself that on a lot of occasions I don't need to use that much.

Yes, my hair is wet. A lot of times I do my make-up and then decide on the hair style. It looks super dark here..maybe because it's wet but I'm still rocking the ombre hair style.


And a close up on the eyes and lips
As you know I am definitely not afraid of colour and I decided to use a super on your face aqua gel liner.


And to match it I chose a coral lippy with a satin finish.


FACE
Chanel Mat Lumiere mixed with Mac Face and body
Some random peachy blush- super lightly applied

EYES
Mac Blue Deep fulidline
L'oreal Explosion mascara (the one with the little ball on the wand)- just one coat

LIPS
17 Hot Chilli

Yes, I managed! And I didn't have any shivers or any side effects.
For some strange reason when I don't have eyeliner on the waterline I feel totally naked! But I was ok.
I would totally do it again maybe with different products.

    Im getting so lazy with my make-up that less is the only way to go. You look great here so I think you now see.. its all in our heads (and the fact we suffer with make-up addiction) that we buy and wear so much!!

    Tali: I agree completely! We defo have an issue. But I love collecting make-up though. However, It was a challenge to be honest but I felt comfortable and I loved that! X
