My friends, it has been a while since my last “5 Product Face” post, and this time I thought it would be nice to use products that don’t require any tools besides my hands. I picked out these products before checking my last post… and realized that they are actually quite similar in method. Oops.
K-Palette 24H Real-Lasting 2-Way Eyebrow (G101)* // Ellis Faas Concealer (S203)* // Happy Skin Cosmetics Eye Am Here to Stay Gel Liner (Chic Brown) // Illamasqua Cream Foundation (CF 320) // Addiction by Ayako Cheek Stick (Rose Bar)
So, I just used the concealer as a base—the Ellis Faas Concealer* has great coverage that isn’t dewy or wet-looking but can forego the use of a setting powder—with the Illamasqua foundation as a contour product. I bought it on extreme sale for that purpose. Rose Bar, again, on my cheeks and lips, and a pretty brown creamy liner for eye definition.
P.S. CHECK OUT HOW DIFFERENT MY FACE SHADE IS FROM MY NECK. Ridiculous. If your face and neck don’t match, which shade do you follow? I tend to follow my face shade; discrepancies with my neck tone, be damned!

I usually follow my neck or the back of my hand/arm because my arm, neck, and chest are almost the same color. I don’t usually match my face color because most of the time it’s lighter and pinker than my neck and chest.
Anyway, I think your face just looks lighter because it’s more prominent + lighting? I have a feeling that in person, the difference isn’t too stark. Still, it looks great in the photo. Not even thinking about Ellis Faas for now. Still stuck lusting over Kjaer Weis.
It’s more noticeable in real life, though I sometimes wonder if the difference is apparent because I look for a variation in tone.
KJAER WEIIIISSSS. Both are good choices, IMO, for blind purchasing. I’ve yet to meet a dud from either brand.
