Less is more...

Well sometimes more is more, but less is more in this instance.

At the moment I am on a minimal make up kick. I have been focusing more on my skin than anything else.



I have been loving up my Bourjois 10hr sleep effect foundation, I actually wore this foundation on my wedding day. However, this foundation isn't for everybody. I will do a full review on it soon. Here's exactly what I'm wearing;

  • Face - Bourjois 10hr sleep effect and Mac sheer mystery powder to set.
  • Cheeks - Eyeko bronzing cream and Mac Lilicent blush creme on apples of cheeks.
  • Eyes - Max factor lash extension mascara. (+ Maybelline liquid mineral concealer under the eyes.)
  • Lips - Mac Lilicent blush creme and Benefit 'posh' lipliner.


Here's a closeup of my lashes, I actually attended a Max Factor bloggers event today and this was one of the things that were in my goodie bag. It's a really interesting mascara that deserves its own post.



What kind of make up look are you wearing a lot of lately?

Blimey, you are so beautiful. I always think you look gorgeous but not many look this good without make up. I'm jealous! xx

Tali said...

Your skin looks flawless here!! My god!
Was the event good?

I was SO not impressed by imats. The best bit was the girls I went out for lunch with! That part I adored!!

lovelyviolet5 said...

What a lovely make up,you are so right less is more,it isn't cool to be like a clown...

su-pah said...

You look absolutely gorgeous with less makeup! :)

Gabriela said...

You are a natural beauty, love that look on you :)

You are right sometimes less is more, actualy makes you see colours with other eyes after sometime, at least to me...
and makes you redescover the basic.
Great post Muhsine :)

Fifi said...

I love this - especially the lip color! It looks so natural. I lately have been wearing less makeup too, except on the weekends. And DANG I envy your lashes!

CamRenRai16(SHOBE) said...

Apparently, Max Factor is going out of business here in the U.S. I am like TOTALLY obsessed with the English Rose lipstick you always wear...personally, I think that the nude look is gorgeous on you, but for just a natural pop of color, you could mix the Milicent with a speck of the English Rose. I wish I could find that lippie here, I LOOOOVE it on you! ♥

Meya said...

lovely =)

Tish said...

Less is definitely more! I love how fresh and still defined you look in the photos. I honestly haven't been wearing foundation for the past couple of weeks and I feel great. I'm sure my skin is loving me for it.

Kerry said...

Your skin looks flawless! What have you found to help scarring? xx

Happy Mixy said...

merhaba kirpikleriniz takma mı?

Muhsine said...

Thanks so much girls :) you are all very lovely and encouraging! X

@Lollipop that's VERY kind!

@Tali yes max factor was really good, had a great time. imats just seems so hectic but I would have loved to have met up with all you girls too! :( X

@Gabriela Thank you, spot on with your thoughts, it's nice to take a step back sometimes. X

@Glamour♥Junkie omg whyyy? that's really sad hopefully it's just a rumour. I love english rose, I had it on the day before yesterday :)

@Kerry I still have scars but not as bad, they are fading, I would suggest exfoliating 2X a week and being patient, most of my scars were recent so time has been its healer. I will blog about my skin soon, promise. X

@Happy Mixy hayir takma degil, kendiliginden uzun ama rimmel daha uzun gosteriyor, yakinda 'review' yapacagim.

You are stunning!!! Love this look on you! I've been trying to rock the 'less is more' look myself lately as it's summer here and just far too hot to wear anything but the basics! :P

Luxe. said...

Your skin is amazing!.x

Charlene said...

Honey look at ur lashes!! So wispy and amazin'!! :) ur skin is gorgeous! xo

Muhsine said...

@M and @Charlotte thanks girls :) X

@Hannah thanks, that's so sweet, I just think it's too much wearing so much makeup all the time and there's no need to influence others to do so.

@makeupper oh lucky you, I wish it was summer here too! :)

@Luxe thanks, I'm taking good care of it.

@Charlene thanks honey :) xx
