Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation in B40 Desert! Pretty and glowy skin is the key to looking beautiful in my opinion and I need the most help in the skin department anyways, haha

BRTC jasmine water BBcream. medium coverage, (freckles, blemishes, dark circles) moisturizing, diminishes fine lines, brightening and SPF 30? yes please!

Estee Lauder Maximum Cover Camouflage – I literally cannot leave the house without at least covering blemishes!

I don’t think of my moisturizer as being “makeup” (just “skin control; I put it on regardless of makeup status), so I’d say my mascara. Nothing fixes eyes quite like it, and the eyes make the face.

This is really difficult – I would normally say eyeliner, because I don’t feel I can leave the house without it! But then this is what other people see, not me – and if I want what I can see and enjoy, then it would have to be nail polish!

That’d be soooo touch because:

I have dark circles under my eyes that need concealing, otherwise I look terribly exhausted and just ugh.

I’m blonde and so are my eyebrows and lashes. I can do without the eyebrows, I only use Benefit’s brow pencil in a light brown color (I forget the correct name) to give it a very natural look. But without the lashes = WEIRD!

So, seriously, I’d look very ugly with only one product for an entire month. Maybe I’d just take some time off at the beach??

MAC Strobe Cream! It somehow always makes my skin look a million times better. Although… there are several products I can’t live without. Thank goodness I don’t actually have to make this choice.

I’d say foundation, but with the coverage I need to look “normal”, I’d look pretty silly with nothing else on. With that said, I have to say lip balm.

Clinique’s Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief. It’s my must have to maintain my soft skin during the cold and dry seasons in Canada.

While I love makeup and am a hoarder I really don’t wear makeup on a day to day basis unless I’m doing a FOTD or going out. So if I were going out… it would be my mineral powder I’d keep. One can EASILY cheat with blush by doing the old fashion cheek pinching. As for lips I could forgo lip color because I could use a pomegranate to stain my lips. I could also make my own mascara and eyeliner using charred almonds mixed with glycerine. It won’t be waterproof but it would work. lol

Definitely mascara. All other products just make me look more polished, mascara keeps my lashes from being totally invisible.

Concealer. I’ll leave the house without foundation, without eyeshadow and without Mascara, but not without concealer.

Oh goodness! I’d keep my Meow Cosmetics mineral foundation. Even if that’s all I sweep on in the morning, it makes such a huge difference in my skin.

Liquid foundation and powder… I have used liquid eyeliner every day for about 9 years and I adore it but I’d rather have nice looking skin and a bare rest of face than nice eyes and a shiny, spotty face…

Mac Painterly paint pot because it evens out my eyelid and it matches my skin tone almost perfectly that I could use it as a concealer in a pinch. It completely transforms my face from tired and uneven to wide awake

BECCA’s creamblush in turkish rose. It’s a contour/blush shade that looks good on the lips too, I’ve even put it on my lids a few times.

It would be my Revlon Colorstay foundation. I NEED to cover up my face! Once I do that, I am actually fit to be seen in public and I can survive without other products.

Probably my mineralized makeup powder because I can use it as foundation and concealer and even eye shadow in a pinch. I am so glad not to have to live like this though … it’s the stuff of irrational nightmares!

Concealer! Either my Revlon ColorStay concealer or MAC Select Moisturecover. I think a person looks instantly better when they cover up dark circles and red areas.

Foundation. If my skin was perfect I would say matte black eyeshadow (Kat Von D e/s in Lucifer to be exact). 🙂

Concealer. Any brand, as long as it matches my skin tone. I walk out of my house fairly often without any makeup on, but if I’m going anywhere other than work I tend to at least dab a little under and around the eye to cover up my dark circles. My current schedule doesn’t allow for much sleep, so I’m currently mascarading as a raccoon in my waking hours.

My MAC Pro Longwear concealer for the darkness under my eyes.

If I didn’t have the circles, I would say my mascara!

Either my MUFE Full Cover concealer or MAC Studio Finish concealer… must cover dark circles and pigmentation!
