Think about a weekend where you are only allowed to use two makeup/beauty products for the entire weekend, day and night. How hard would it be to choose the best product for a simple makeup?

My Choices for a Simple Makeup

Primers, foundations, mascaras, lipsticks and so on… There are many makeup products that most of us use on a daily bases. What if we are asked to do a challenge? What if we must go a whole weekend with just two makeup products. I think it would be a tough one…

I guess I will be going with mascara and the lipstick. Mascara is a life saver when you want to hide how tired you look. Applying couple of layers of mascara would give a really nice look. So for this occasion I would want my lashes to look full and I would go for a mascara that would give a nice volume and curls like my favourite mascara Seventeen Doll’d Up Mascara. If you’d like to read more about this mascara please visit my post Favourite Mascara. Then a pretty lipstick so that people won’t be paying much attention on the face. Maybe picking a shade which can be used like blusher as well wouldn’t be a problem, as I talked about in my post L’Oréal Rouge Caresse Lipstick, I like orange/coral shades for summer. I also think that these shades of blushers look gorgeous for these months. Therefore I would pick lipstick with these shades. If you are brave enough you can use it as an eye shadow too.

These are my choices for a simple makeup, what would your choice be? Think wisely as you are only limited to two…

    I’ve been opting for a super simple look recently, so I have really cut down on the amount I am putting on my face, mainly to help my epic breakouts recently! I would opt for Mascara, cause lets face it eyes look odd without it, I like how it opens up your face and really draws attention away from other areas… second would be a concealer. One to use over said spots and hide the circles. 🙂

    • Breakouts… I’ve been dealing with them recently however now it is luckily getting better. Agree with you on mascara, eyes look naked without it 🙂 Concealer is a good pick xx

  • I think I’d probably go for an eyebrow pencil and lipstick; it’s what I’ve been doing anyway, haha. I’m extremely pedantic when it comes to my brows so I can never neglect that, and I find a good lipstick does as a good a job at awakening a face!

    I just pop on a bit of mascara and bronzer if i’m having a simple makeup day! I always feel lipstick doesn’t suit me unless I’m wearing foundation!

    • I like wearing bronzer with/without foundation, it just brightens up the face. xx

  • Happy weekend!

  • I think I would put some concealer and something in my brows as well ! Mascara makes my eyes darker if I don’t have any concealer or foundation on and I feel like my brows frame both my eyes and my face.

    • Luckily I don’t have that problem with mascara, it only happens if I wear it for so long.

  • this is my perfect “i haven’t made an effort but i still look” the red lip really makes it look like you’ve made effort! great pos! enjoy your evening!

  • Aditi Oberoi Malhotra

    Absolutely love the post and yes love wearing bronzer and mascara with some nice lip color!

    Love this post! Mine pick would be blush to define my high cheek bones and mascara to make my eyes pop!

  • It will be a very sad day if I was only allowed to use two makeup products, but I can see why you chose these two. Mascara is perfect for opening your eyes and making you look awake, whilst lipstick is a great multi tasking product x

  • Ah.. if there’s a challenge like that, it’s going to feel like the end of the world lol..
    But no, I think I’d prefer having a mascara and lip balm hihi.. Can’t live a day without a lip balm 🙂

  • This would be so difficult however if I had to pick two I think i’d go with mascara and the urban decay powder!

  • I love posts like this and simple is always better in my opinion! If I had to choose it would be mascara and concealer! 🙂

  • SamanthaSeries

  • I’d find it so hard to stick to two products only! But if I had no choice I would probably go with concealer and lipstick. I could use the concealer as foundation where I need it and the lipstick as a blusher too like you said. If i use eyelash curlers for the lashes technically that’s not a makeup product so the eyes would be sorted too!! xx

    • Concealer and lipstick are good for multitasking. with just these two simple makeup is ready 🙂 xx

  • Lovely. Would love it if you could check out my newly launched Holiday Style Diary!

    Honestly it wouldn’t be though for me at all. Give me a mascara and a brow pencil and I’m happy

  • Larisa Merkulova
  • Mascara and red lipstick would be my choice too, but it would hurt to leave Concealer behind.

    • Ah yeah especially if you had a bad night without proper sleep however I believe red lips would take the attention 🙂

  • Ellie Adams

    So with you on this, I’d maybe add a touch of concealer too but mascara and lippie will always be essentials 🙂

  • I think I would take Powder foundation and mascara! Maybe trade the mascara for a lip color!


  • I haven’t thought of that but I guess it will be.. bbcream and eyeliner.

  • Concealer and a blush/lip colour hybrid! Gotta love those. Though I’d love to ditch the concealer, I’m farrrr too spotty without it, and even leaving behind the tinted moisturizer/foundation is a bit of a stretch!

    • Luckily my skin is doing ok at the moment, otherwise I would definitely go for concealer instead of lipstick x

  • that’s so tough! i think i would go for concealer and mascara 🙂

  • Samileen

    OMG that’s insane to even think about haha, I would most definitely go with mascara and lip/cheek stain thingamajig 🙂

    Sam || Beautydetour

    • haha insane right? 🙂 Would be a such a challenging day xx

  • I can’t live without under eye concealer,so if I could only have one other thing it would be a lip product I guess, a bright one to distract from the rest my face lol!

    • Ha ha, it would definitely be a really tough weekend with just two products 🙂 xx
