Now What Will I Wear Today???

As always I like to begin by priming my face with the following:

Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane CrosspolymerSilica, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Alcohol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Butylene Glycol, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Acacia Senegal Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Ci 77019/Mica, Ci 77491/Iron Oxide, Ci 77891/Titanium Dioxide, Ci 75470/Carmine

Followed by some colour correcting, around any areas of redness:

Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Isodecane, Alcohol Denatured, Polyglyceryl 4 Isostearate, Cetyl PEG/PPG 10/1 Dimethicone, Hexyl Laurate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Aluminum Starch, OctenylSuccinate, Phenoxyethanol, Magnesium Sulfate, Diphenyl Dimethicone, Cellulose Gum, Tristearin, Acrylates Crosspolymer, Methylparaben, Nylon 12, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Acetylated Glycol Stearate, Aluminum Hydroxide, Dimethicone, May Contain (+/-): (CI 77891), Mica, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492), Chromium Oxide Green (CI 77288)

Of course I also use something for shiny areas, like my forehead and nose:  Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Crosspolymer

Once all that’s set I go right ahead and apply the following with my favourite Foundation Brush: 

Cyclopentasiloxane, aqua, corn starch modified, Bis-PEG/PPG-14/14 Dimethicone, Neopentyl Glycol Diethylhexanoate, Glycerin, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Mica, Magnesium Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Zanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Aluminum Hydroxide, Propylene Carbonate, Proplparaben, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Chlorphenesin, Methylparaben, Tetrasodium, EDTA, Parfum, Cyclohexasiloxane, Sodium Myristoyl Glutamate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Citronnellol, Geraniol, Butyphenyl Methylpropional, Linalool. [+/- CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide, CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 77492 (Iron Oxides), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides)]

Then set the whole thing with some:  Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Silica

Then on to my eyes, well they need priming too so I thought I would put on:

Cyclopentasiloxane, Octyl Palmitate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Dimethicone, Kaolin, Triacontanyl PVP, Propylene Carbonate, Titanium Dioxide, Barium Sulfate , Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Mica (CI 77019)

That’s an important step because otherwise the following products might slide off (given how much stuff I’ve put on my face so far, maybe that’s not a bad thing!!)

Talc, Kaolin, Nylon-6, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Polyglycerl-3 Diisostearate, Isostearyl Neopentanoate, Polybutene, Butyl Stearate, Phonexyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparabem, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, [+/- Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Tin Oxide, Synthetic Flourphlogopite, Silca, Mica, CI 19140 (yellow 5 lake), CI 42909 (Blue 1 lake), CI 75470 (carmine), CI 77007 (utramarines), CI 77163 (Bismuth Oxychloride), CI 77288 (Chromium Oxide Greens), CI 77289 (Chromium Hydroxide Green), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 77492 (Iron Oxides) CI 77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 77510 (Ferric Ferrocyandie) CI 77742 (Manganses Violet), CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide)]

I like to define my lash line so a good strong waterproof product is required to give definition, on occasions like these I like to use:

Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Isododecane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Ceresin, Caprylyl Methicone, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Talc, Silica Silylate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Calcium Aluminum, Borosilicate, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Silca, Propylene Carbonate, Glass, Tin Oxide, BHT, Aloe, Barbadensis Extract, Aloe Barbadenis Leaf Extract,  [+/- May Contain: Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499/Iron Oxides, Mica, Ci 77891/Titanium Dioxide, Mica Ci 77007/ Ultramarines, CI 75470, Carmine, Ci 42090/Blue 1 Lake, CI 77266/ Black 2, Ci 77288/Chromium Oxide Greens, Ci 77289/Chromium Hydroxide Green, CI 77400 / Cooper Powder, Ci 77510/Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide, Ci 77510/Ferric Ferrocyanide, CI 77000 Aluminum Powder, CI 77163 / Bismuth Oxychloride CI 77400 / Bronze Powder, CI 77742/ Manganese Violet

Oops almost forgot to brighten my eyes with some white liner and line my lower eyelid to open them up, so I quickly applied the following:

Now wasn’t that easy!!

I’m exhausted!!!  I Think I need a lie down!

What will you be wearing today?? 

* I didn’t count the ingredients I just did a word count on the ingredient list, and yes some of them are repeated across products.  But please feel free to give me an exact count on the individual ingredients if you like because I just didn’t have the strength or the stomach to do it.
