The Lipstick League - Week of 8.24.15

The Lipstick League Question of the Week

How many makeup products do you use for an everyday face? 

G's answer: For my regular, "nothing fancy, just get the job done and look professional" face, I require nine products: foundation, concealer, setting powder, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, brow pencil or gel, and lipstick.
