Face Five Challenge

I was tagged by one of my very good blogging friends Shalunya of Shalunya & Boyet to do the Face Five Challenge.  This tag was a collaboration between her, Tanya from Leopard, Lace and Cheesecake,  Betti from Makeup Asylum, Ashley Maria of Ashley Maria, Love, Life, Beauty, and Keisha from Chrysalis Gals

1. Use Five and only Five products to create a complete makeup look. 
2. Each different product counts as 1 product.   
(Multipurpose products count as 1 product, such as Benetint, Bombshell the One Stick, Nars Multipurpose Stick)
3. No palettes are allowed. No trios, quads or multi-shade palettes.
4. Tag Five others to complete the Face Five Challenge
5. Have Fun!

Items Used:

Foundation: MAC Pro Longwear
Concealer: MAC Pro Longwear
Blush & Lipstick: Be a Bombshell The One Stick in Flustered
Mascara: Too Faced Better Than Sex
Eye Shadow: Maybelline Color Tattoo Bad To the Bronze

I first applied the MAC foundation all over and then the concealer on my under eyes and on my lids to browbone to even everything out.  I applied the Bad to the Bronze shadow with my finger on just my lid.  I took a thin shadow brush and applied some of the shadow along the lower lash line. I decided to use Better Than Sex Mascara on my lashes because of the darkness and drama it gives especially since I wouldn't be using an eye liner.  Since I wasn't doing a smoky eye, I was able to do a bold lip.  To be honest though, I hated the Be a Bombshell One Stick on my lips.  It felt gross and was super sparkly.  It's great for a blush though.

Full face makeup looks take me out of my comfort zone because it means that I have to post a full face photo which I'm still not comfortable with.  However, posting full makeup looks is one of my 2014 blogging resolutions so this was a good tag to do, thanks again for tagging me Shalunya!

I tag any of my lovely readers who'd like to do this challenge and also the following ladies:

Karen at My Beautopia
Caroline at Notes From Caroline
Sarah at Sarah Kay
Gillian at Purple Gillian
Lily at Beauty with Lily

Have a wonderful day everyone!


  1. Love this challenge! And you look GORGEOUS!
    Bana xoxo

  2. Thanks so much for joining us and doing this El! I am so proud of you! I am glad you are starting to feel more comfortable doing full face shots. You did a great job at this challenge! I love the whole look! And I agree...I used my Be A Bombshell as a blush and lipstick and it feels terrible on the lips! lol.

    1. Thanks for coming up with this challenge! It was fun to do but def. a challenge!

  3. I love this tag so much! That Be a Bombshell The One Stick looks fierce on you! xoxo Lauren

  4. Love this, you are too cute! That foundation looks really good on you as well. How are you liking the concealer so far? I'm still on the fence about picking it up.

    1. Thanks girl! The concealer is decent. I wouldn't say it's as amazing as people say though. But I'm really picky about my concealers right now and you probably don't have as much problems in your under eye area as me. Go have them try it on you is what I would suggest.
