Tagged! 5 Makeup Products I’d Pick In A Pinch

Tagged, I’m it! Tracy caught me! This is my first tag post, actually, and I thought it might be fun doing it. The tag is of course the said title, 5 makeup products I’d pick in a pinch. It’s quite hard to pick just 5 you know… on a daily basis, I already use 2-3 products just for base! So in the end, I will probably show you products that multi task!



1. Base for face – RMS ‘un’ cover up is great as concealer and foundation. It doesn’t get too oily on me and it has a dewy finish.

2. Eye shadow – I’d pick an ashy brown because it can be used on the brows as well as defining the eyes.

3. Mascara – This one is not a multi tasker but I can’t live without it. I can skip liner but can’t skip mascara.

4. Cheek and Lip – My choice is Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge. I love how it looks on the skin and it can double as lip colour.

5. Setting powder – this one is essential for me so I won’t miss it no matter what. To complement the other products here, I choose Lancome Maqui Blanc Miracle powder foundation to set everything (since base and cheeks are cream products).

Here is the finished look. The photo is quite warm because it’s taken later in the afternoon – golden afternoon sun πŸ™‚




What about you? Since it’s a tag, I think I have to tag some people too, right? I tag…ALL OF YOU! If you blog and haven’t been tagged this, you’re it! No blog? Just comment below πŸ™‚

  • LOVE it! You look so glowy and beautiful in the late sun!
    I think I need that RMS uncover up now….:P

    • Hey Tracy… I’m not sure if there is an ‘un’ cover up shade that is light enough for you though… I mean 11 matches me quite well and you’re lighter than I am?

  • Josephine

    Base: revlon photo ready stick concealer, to cover some imprefection and dark circles

    Eyes: solone smoody pencil liner, the best drugstore eye pencil imo, long lasting, set within 30 sec and practically doesnt budge until I remove with bi phase eye makeup remover

    I can do without mascara but i must fillin my brows, so eyebrow pencil is a must, usually shu uemura h9 in stone grey


    Powder to set everything: could be 2 way cake or loose powder depends on skin condition

    • Hey Josephine, I haven’t tried that Solone Smoody pencil liner before. Sounds great!! And yes to Shu Uemura in Stone Grey! I use that too πŸ™‚

  • Love these! Only 5? I’d say, Rimmel concealer, L’OrΓ©al Infaillible lacquer liner in Slate, Benefit They’re Real mascara, Diorshow in Velvet and Guerlain Crazy Terracotta. But that leaves me with no lippie! πŸ™

    • No lippie? LOL! Maybe double the lippie as a blush instead of an actual blush? Tricky isn’t it?

  • I so want to try the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge!

    • And you should try it too! I think it’s really great πŸ™‚

  • love the natural look you created!
    just realized we did this tag on the same day and we think a lot alike. lol.
    i, too, used a brown shadow to use on eyes and brows, and i’d pick mascara over liner!

    • I just read your post and you’re right. Hey, you know what they say about great minds πŸ˜›

  • sataa

    I love the products you have picked up they have created a very pretty natural look especially the Bobbi Brown pot rouge looks like a really nice product.5 products that I would pick are Klair’s BB cream,Maybelline dream smooth blush in pink frosting,A nude pink lipstick,Tarte lights, camera action mascara and Covergirl translucent powder.

    • Hi Sataa, yes, I love the Bobbi Brown pot rouges πŸ™‚ Have you tried them? I’ve heard lots about the Tarte mascara and have yet to try it. It’s on my wishlist!

  • Ok I shall be tagged (by my own) and do a write up on this topic soon! Thanks for the idea….hehehe….
    By the way, I can see you really like BB pot rouge. I have tried it at the counter, and it is soooo yummy creamy… too bad I can’t use it on my dry lips, though….

    • Oh yes, please do the tag! I tag YOU!! LOL!
      The pot rouge is a little drying on the lips, I agree. It works great over a lip balm though πŸ™‚

      • Weeeeeeee~
        I did it, my first tagged post, thanks to u…. hehehehe…. we do share similar items, no? But I think I hv to try other powder foundations/2 way cake that is less yellow….so far cant find really fine milled ones….

        • Yay! Have you tried Lancome powder foundations? They have a wide variety of shades so you might have better luck there.

          • Not yet, but I give it a try. Sometimes can get really confused with the many range they have. Heard dat their whitening one is good!

            • I think I’m using that. The Maqui Blanc powder foundation.

  • Hey Lily, I just did the photos yesterday so my post will be up soon! I ended up using 6 products so it’s a bit of a fail :p I wanted to use LMdB Coral Nymph on both my cheeks and lips, but it turned out to be way too pale for my lips particularly because I have minimal eye makeup on, so I pulled out Dior Spring Ball Addict Extreme instead!

    • It IS tough using only 5 products right? Here, I’m saved by a couple of multi taskers! Can’t wait to read your post πŸ™‚

  • I had to multitask brows and eye shadow, too, lol! If I had a pot rouge I’d have done that as well, but I don’t, lol. I like the look! Easy breezy!

    • Definitely easy breezy πŸ™‚ Anyone can do it!

  • Liz

    You make it seem so easy! Well, I guess that’s the point, but some people had a hard time, LOL. I knew that BB Pot Rouge was going to come into play. πŸ˜‰

    • Heh… because I love my BB pot rouge!!

  • Good lord…you look just as beautiful–if not more so–as when you’re wearing a full face of makeup. You’re naturally gorgeous, Lily! <3

    • Hey Becca, you sure know how to boost my ego. Lol lol! Thanks for making me smile πŸ™‚

  • BooBooNinja

    • The Perfect Palette Tag? I’ll have to search YouTube and see what it’s about πŸ™‚
