Imagine the worst - each woman can only keep 5 items of makeup - what would you choose?
A friend asked me the other day what are the five makeup items that I couldn't do without. If fact, if I could only ever use five items of makeup what would they be? Well, after recovering from the cold sweat that descended on me when thinking of this terrible nightmare I came to some conclusions.
Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation: My face can be very blotchy and has lots of redness. Normally I would use concealers, colour correctors and foundation to correct all this. My most used everyday foundation is in fact Temptu S/B Airbrush foundation, but as I can only choose five items and therefore could not include my compressor and airbrush gun I went for KVD foundation. It gives medium to full coverage, so I could get away with not using the other products to correct my skin flaws.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Promade: Being a natural blonde my eyebrows are very pale and disappear if I don’t use a brow product. This is my personal favourite as the blonde shade works well for me without turning my brows orange as many blonde brow products do.
Marcelle Ultimate Lash Mascara: For the same reason as my brows disappear, so do my lashes. Mascara is the one thing I can never do without and I really like this one as it thickens and lengthens but not overly so and never clumps.
Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Contour Palette: This is my go to eyeshadow palette. Lots of shades, all matte that go on perfectly and last all day. Some shades could also be used as face contour if pushed.
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick: I am not a great lipstick wearer to be honest, but I do like my lips to be moist so I would choose a lipstick as part of my top 5. A shade such as Nude Rose would be a good choice as I could also double up as a blush.
So, there you have it, my five must have items. I really hope that I never have to reduce my makeup collection to such a limited number, but if I did, this would be the result.
