I was at my sister’s studio and I didn’t bring any of my makeup. I was looking through her makeup stash and decided to turn it into a challenge! So I chose from her makeup and tried to turn it into as good a look as possible for myself in only one try. So here it goes!
First I used the Etude House Wonder Pore toner and Nature Republic Aloe Vera soothing cream to prep my skin for makeup. I actually use the same toner, and have already tried this soothing cream before, so I had no worries with these products. Also, we have the same skin issues like allergies and redness so this was easy. Then I also used the Face Shop Air Cotton Base in Lavender as primer. I used this one because of the color. I have olive undertones and bluish bases can make foundation match better with olive undertones.
Next I used a Missha undereye brightener and The Saem browcara. I also used a Cathy Doll sponge to blend. The sponge was tough and was not as absorbent as the beautyblender but it was able to blend everything anyway.
Next I used a Mumuso mascara and an H&M eyelash curler. The H&M eyelash curler didn’t fit my eye well and the edges actually hurt my eyelid. The Mumuso mascara was lengthening and volumizing but it took a long time to dry and made a mess on my undereye that I had to re-apply the brightener.
Then I blended the shades together using a generic small oval brush.
With my hair down you can barely see the shade difference of my face with my neck on camera. Again, it’s barely noticeable in real life so I didn’t feel the need to re-do anything!
And that’s it, I succeeded doing my own face using my little sister’s makeup! It was a challenge working with lower quality and unfamiliar makeup but I still looked pretty decent. 😂 This goes to show you can still do a decent makeup look using available products as long as they’re complete and you know they’re safe for your skin type!
