Come Play With Me: How Low Can You Go?

This gorgeous gal recently asked me to come up with a new theme for the Come Play With Me Series and after some thought I decided on the theme 'How low can you go!' And no, I don't want you all to go do the limbo or some squats, but see how many makeup products you can use to create your ideal look! For me on a day to day basis I use anywhere between 10-20 products (who keeps count lol) so being able to create a look I'm happy with, using 5 products was huge for me! The products I used were;

1. Revlon Age defying concealer for Base, Concealer and Eye primer

2. Hard Candy lip liner for Blush and Lip colour

3. Hoola Bronzer for Bronzer, Eyeshadow, Eyebrows

4. Revlon eyeshadow for Eyeshadow, Highlighter

5. Benefit Mascara for Mascara, Eyeliner (yep! haha)


So what do you think! I personally would totally wear this out, but sadly having combination skin would mean my face would practically slide off in a few hours time as I didn't use a powder to set my makeup. Using the benefit mascara as a liner was also easier than I thought it would be, I just dipped a liner brush into excess product on the wand to apply it. I can imagine it being a pain in the butt to wash off later though!


All I can notice is my slightly orange brows… haha. The whole process seemed to take longer than applying my makeup normally, so I really doubt I'll be switching to this routine anytime soon. So my challenge now to you, is too see how low can you go! Please give it a shot and if you do, leave your post linked below!

  1. That was so quick, hun! Well, you have certainly set the challenge. You look so gorgeous and polished, I would never have guessed that you'd created this look with only 5 products. And wow, how did you apply that flawless winged eye with a mascara??? Well done! Now for me to try and cull some products from my regular makeup routine, eek! xx
