Fragrance Direct | The 3 Minute Makeup Challenge With Only 3 Products*

Maybelline Colour Sensational Popsticks In Cherry Pop | Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation In 55 Beige | Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express Mascara In Glam Black

The lovely Fiona from Fragrance Direct contacted me asking if I would like to take part in their 3 Minute Makeup Challenge.
Now considering I work with children I barely wear any makeup, so it usually only takes me about 5 minutes to get ready. But on a day when I'm not working it takes longer, I would say 20 minutes or so. (If I was going on a night out it shamefully takes a lot longer than that!)
So I was interested to see if I could apply my makeup in only 3 minutes but there was a catch, I was only allowed to use 3 products!
I browsed the FD website and they have so many discounted branded makeup products it was hard to choose. I had a choice of four brands which helped narrow it down a bit easier.
So what did I pick?
Maybelline Colour Sensational Popsticks In Cherry Pop - £2.25* | This is such a lovely coral lip balm. It is slightly more on the Orange side but it is very wearable and perfect for a hint of colour on the lips.
Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation In 55 Beige - £7.99* | This shade is slightly too dark for me (as you'll see in the video) but when I hopefully get a tan, it will match fine. I would say this foundation is a medium coverage but buildable if you prefer a fuller coverage. It applies like a creme foundation but dries into a slight powder finish, leaving your skin feeling smooth.
Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express Mascara In Glam Black - £6.75* | I love Maybelline mascaras and have actually had this one before. It separates my lashes and adds lots of length which I love.

(I know this video is rubbish but this is the first time I have ever recorded one and I wanted to show you that I did it in 3 minutes!)
It just goes to show that I can do my makeup in under 3 minutes with only 3 products. If I was allowed another product I would have to pick concealer. As you can see I have some beastly bags under my eyes and slightly dark eyelids that I would like to hide.
I also think I could of used the lip colour as a blush. It would give my cheeks a slight bit of colour and glow.

Could you do your makeup with only 3 products in 3 minutes?

  1. You did good!

  2. What a fun challenge! I think I'd really struggle with that as I as well rely on concealer, though to cover spots and not so much dark circles.

  3. You look awesome! I did this challenge too and picked the same foundation, really liked it! There's noway I could just use 3 products everyday!!


  4. You are so naturally pretty! Jealous!
