The lovely Ana from Ana Goes Green tagged me for this most recent tag. I found it interesting as it really makes you hone in on what you really love. It’s kind of like deciding on what would be a “desert island” product that is if you were able to have your entire makeup kit.
If you could only have one…
Primer :-: I don’t really use a primer, so I’m okay with none.
Base Products :-: If I really really had to pick only one I would go with the Jane Iredale liquid minerals. It gives my skin a really pretty glow and has medium coverage.
Concealer :-: rms “un” cover-up. It’s a green beauty standard for a reason. I can not only use it under my eyes or on blemishes but also as a sheer foundation.
Powder :-: This is probably cheating a little bit but I’d go with my Everyday Minerals. I can use it with a feathery brush to mattify areas or with a denser brush to add more coverage.
Blush :-: It was kind of hard to choose a blush. Do you pick powder or cream? Oh the decisions. After much back and forth I’ve finally settled on rms beauty lip2cheek in smile. A gorgeous peachy-pink color.
Bronzer :-: The one I have been using nearly every day since I got it is my Au Naturale Kissed bronzer. It’s the perfect color for my skin & I’m going to have a hard time not using it come winter.
Highlighter :-: rms beauty living luminizer. This is such a great multitasking products & I don’t think I could be without.
Makeup Brush :-: My Real Techniques stippling brush. Great with every kind of product I’ve used it with.
Eyebrow Product :-: It’s discontinued but currently I’m obsessed with Jane Iredale’s old Almond eyeshadow. It’s the perfect shade for a coppery redhead.
Single Eyeshadow :-: Alima Pure in Cappuccino. It’s a really pretty golden bronzy/coppery color that looks great on my green eyes.
Eyeliner :-: I’d be hard-pressed to be without a basic black eyeliner. For this I went with my trusty Jane Iredale Basic Black liner. It’s never let me down.
Mascara :-: Nvey Eco Mascara. This is a hands down favorite of mine since I bought it.
Lipstick :-: Yeah, so here’s where I can’t follow rules. You all know I’m a lipstick addict. So I’m going with two. I could live happily ever after if I had just these two. My picks are Ilia Beauty’s Crimson & Clover and Jane Iredale’s Liz . A gorgeous true red and a beautiful coral.
Nail Polish :-: I can’t remember the name of this little mini OPI polish but it was part of the Bond collection. A gorgeous red with gold fleck that is perfect for all occasions!
Lipbalm :-: R.L. Linden and Co La Balmba Rosa. I love this stuff so much. Goes on so nicely with a bit of glossy sheen to the lips and hydrates like crazy.
I’m going to tag Brianna and anyone else who would want to give this a whirl.
