But what about a challenge where you use whatever products you have but make it a really full face, with as many products as possible, without looking like a drag
I think that, contrary to what lots of people think, it can take a whole lot of products to do a natural face (even if it doesn't necessarily have to), and what looks "too much" on a face is not the quantity but rather the application.
So this morning I managed to put on no less than 23 products:
No, the Lutens perfumes don't count, they're just on display because I'm wearing them (both, yes) and they look pretty in the picture.
And here's me wearing this all:
Let's have a look at what I used. I'm going to put a little * next to items I usually do not wear on a daily basis.
Laura Mercier Illuminating Primer*
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua B10
Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer in #2
Clarins Instant Light Brush On Perfector (wear this most of the time but sometimes skip it)
Nars Penny Lane Cream blush * (rarely wear 2 blushers unless it's to create a new color)
Nars Sex Appeal blush
Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow*
Becca Loose Powder in Sesame
Brows: Shiseido brow pencil in shade #002, Mac Omega e/s, Essence gel
Nars eyeshadow primer
The 5 eyeshadows on the top row of the Inglot palette, which are Matte 351, 390, 358, 363 and 329 * (I don't always use 5 shadows on a daily basis, I can do with 3)
Mac chromographic pencil in NC15/NW20 on waterline*
Mac champagne eyeliner in the inner corner to brighten*
Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing mascara on bottom lashes*
Clinique High Impact mascara on top lashes
Dior Universal lip liner*
Bourjois 3D Max volume lipgloss
I think this is absolutely daytime/office appropriate and doesn't look like 23 products. It doesn't feel to heavy to wear either but it's definitely more time consuming to apply that many products so I am glad I can skip a few on a daily basis!
What's the maximum amount of products you use?
