My Two Product Lifesavers!

Saturday, January 09, 2016

On days when I leave the house honestly believing I've got zero need for makeup for the day, only to find out we've got a casual dinner with friends that I completely forgot, I can always turn to the two products in my bag that I can never leave home without.

1. KATE  BB Gel Cream - I'm convinced this has the best BB cream texture in the world. It is so easy to spread, and it just manages to completely melt with your skin in the most moisturising, lightweight way ever. In a quick hurry on the road, I just dot a tiny amount all over my face, spread evenly, and I'm rewarded with fresh-looking skin. Coverage is light but it's just the right amount to brighten my face and keep my freckles a little bit less obvious.

2. Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita - I can't leave this at home even if I tried. It's literally my lips but better. Probably my HG lip product if you didn't need to sharpen it (bleh). I can use this even when I'm barefaced and my skin is utter crap and suddenly look instantly fresh.

After having my brows groomed, I haven't really felt the need to do much with my brows for casual days out, but otherwise, this would have been a three product SOS, and my trusty K-Palette Lasting Two-Way Eyebrow Pen in 102 would be in the mix!

What are the two (or three!) beauty products you know will instantly fix your look?

  1. Do you have oily or dry skin? I want use BB creams because of their lightweight formula, but they melt off my skin :( My two products are my LA girl concealer and MUA loose powder to set the concealer.

    1. I have dry skin! But there are some really good BB creams out there that work even with oily skin, like Missha's!!

  2. OHHHH! Nars Dolce Vita's been on my list for such a long time! I haven't tried KATE BB Cream but would love to try it out :)
