Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

I thought it would be interesting to see what everybody's own individual look is! Here's a challenge for you: List a max of 10 steps that include your skincare routine as well as your makeup routine to complete your everyday look. I know some of us may use more steps in the morning, but try your best to make ten. Please include the products you use and your skin type (i.e. normal, dry, oily, combo) And remember... “The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good, on you!” -Coco Chanel

 

 

Example:

Skin type - Combo 

1.) Ocean Salt cleanser by LUSH

2.) Tea Tree Toner by LUSH

3.) Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

4.) Revlon Photo Ready Concealer in light/medium 

5.) Tarte BB Cream in light

6.) MAC Eye Shadow in espresso (brow filler)

7.) Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blissful

8.) Bobbi Brown Bronzer in golden light

9.) L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in carbon black

10.) YSL glossy lip stain #7

 

 

Good luck! Smiley Happy

How is the truth serum working out for you? I haven't heard any decent reviews from someone with combo/acne prone skin which I have. I've been wanting to buy it for awhile now however I wasn't sure because it is a serum. Serums scare me I guess. haha

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

I had two .5 oz samples that I used in a row for a couple months and it lightened up some of my acne scars but not any of my sun spots that I have before I started to care about SPF. There's wasn't a noticeable enough difference for me, so I never purchased the full size.

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

I've only been using Truth Serum for about 2 weeks but it hasn't broken me out and my skin is starting to look brighter. As for fine lines & dark spots I don't know yet but I'm hoping!

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

Two weeks is about the point where I noticed results in brightening/more luminous skin too.

 

I have a few light post acne marks that it did help with, but I've also gotten Ole's Enlighten Me kit which has a mini size of their Enlighten Me serum which is more intensive than the Truth serum. It's more geared toward discoloration and fading dark spots rather than plumping, smoothing, and hydrating (like the Truth). I alternate with the Truth in the day and EM at night.

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

These are the products I'm using right now, but it changes a lot...

 

Skin type: combo
1. Origins Checks and Balances Face Wash
2. FAB Facial Radiance Pads
3. The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream
4. Dr. Brant Pores No More Primer just for my cheeks
5. Dr. Jart Premium BB Cream
6. MAC Pro-Long wear concealer
7. Laura Mercier Mineral Powder
8. Tarte Exposed Blush
9. Benefit Watt's Up
10. Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment in Rose

 

I usually don't wear eye makeup for day to day, it's more a night time/special occasions thing. I just hate dealing with eye makeup because it always always smudges on me and it's a pain to remove.

 

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

Skin type: combination

 

1. Murad time release acne cleanser

2. Fresh lip scrub

3. Murad clarifying toner

4. Eye balm

6. Tarte bb cream in fair

8. Benefit cream eyeshadow in birthday suit

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

Pffttt. I've already failed this for today. Am wearing 11 makeup items on my face and sunscreen. 0.O

 

I'll try this tomorrow Smiley Very Happy

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

Today my oily skin decided not to be so oily, so I only did a water rinse before makeup.

 

1) La-Roche Posay Redermic +UV (anti-aging plus sunscreen)

2) LaRoche Posay Ultra-Light Sunscreen Fluid (plan to be out in sun, skip this on inside days)

3) MAC Fluidline in Rich Ground

4) Fairy Drops Scandal Queen Mascara

5) Tarte Maracuja Blush

6) Fresh Rose Lip Treatment

This is a minimal makeup day for me, I'm only going to town and the rest of the day at home, so no need for a big effort.


Great question!

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

I love the enzyme peel to raise the impurities out to the surface! It was gross at first, then realized I had to use a gentle exfoliator to rid them once surfaced. Great product!

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

Ugh! I try to stay away from it when I'm stressed or hormonal. My face looks like a war zone, but I know it's helping & I rather have it at the surface than underneath.

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

Yay! You did it today! How do you like the fake up concealer?

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

I LOVE it. Been raving about it in various threads Smiley Very Happy Its very hydrating, so easy to blend in, offers pretty good and such natural looking coverage but I dont have any under eye issues. It leaves a dewy finish, so I do have to set with powder but once I do it looks flawless and stays in place all day.

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

Good to know! Been looking for a stick concealer to cover blemishes without being cakey. I got the sample in yesterday just haven't tried it yet. Will do that tonight!

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

Ooo, you might want to also check out UD's stick concealers too, they're super creamy and easy to apply/blend out (even with fingers in those emergency pimple pop ups), but they dry down to more of a matte/powder finish rather than the dewy one like the Fake Up.
