FOTD | Instagram Picks My Makeup

FOTD, Makeup Look, Instagram Picks My Makeup

A few weeks back I did an Instagram Picks My Makeup and I thought I would share with you the outcome and look I created with the makeup you lovely lot selected!

I decided to pit one of my project 10 pan products against a product in my collection I haven’t been able to give a lot of love in recent months! And, on the whole, you guys were trying to help me out by keeping me to my project 10 pan projects! Anywhoo… here’s the products you guys had to chose between, and if we’re yet to connect on Instagram, I’d love to see you over there!

Primer – NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer vs E.L.F Mineral Infused Face Primer

With 303 votes to 122, there was a clean winner! To be honest I haven’t tried the E.L.F Mineral Infused Primer for some time, but I’m really enjoying working my way through my NYX Honey Dew primer and I can’t wait to share my progress already at the end of March!

Foundation – Dior Face & Body Foundation vs Maybelline Superstay Active Wear Foundation

Another clean winner with 297 to 157. I’m actually really loving my Dior Face & Body Foundation… the shade is totally not right for me (despite the Dior girl ‘matching’ me to it! But when I finish this I really want to pick it up again!). I apply foundation with my Real Technique’s Complexion Sponge.

Concealer – L’Oreal 24 Hour Pomade Concealer vs L’Oreal Infaillible More Than Concealer

With 151 to 285 this is one of the first time’s you voted against my project 10 pan products. And to be fair, I think the L’Oreal Infaillible concealer is actually more of a favourite than the pomade concealer, so I really wasn’t complaining!

Powder – Soap & Glory One Heck of A Blot vs RCMA No Color Powder

With 235 vs 199, we have another clear winner! Realistically I think you guys just like seeing the pan on the S&G powder get bigger and bigger, and I’m included to agree! This RCMA powder has actually not been opened yet, as it’s my second bottle!

Bronzer – Smashbox Contour Kit vs Tarte Parkave Princess

The second, and last time, you voted against my project 10 pan with 137 to 306. To be fair, while I really like my Smashbox Contour Kit, the Tarte bronzer is actually really stunning!

Blush – NARS Orgasm vs L’Oreal Life’s A Peach Blush

Another clear winner for the project 10 pan; 316 vs 137. I spoke about this on my Instagram the other day, but this NARS blush is just never ending, and I’m not sure I’ll ever hit pan on it, but it’s such a flattering shade on my skintone, so I’m really not complaining!

Highlighter – Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in Blossom Glow vs OFRA Rodeo Drive

I don’t actually have a highlighter in my project 10 pan, so I just chose two in my collection I haven’t used in a while. With 209 to 249 it was pretty close, but Rodeo Drive just won! While I love the formula of OFRA highlighters, I’m not sure this one entirely suits my skintone.

Eyeshadow Palette – HUDA Beauty Warm Brown Obsessions Palette vs Violet Voss Holy Grail Palette

Once again voting for my project 10 pan with 270 to 185. One thing I’m LOVING about my project 10 pan is that it’s allowing me to try out the same eyeshadow palette but with new and different looks! I’ve started actually using some of those shades in here that never got any love and… well yeah, you can see what look I created today with it down below

Mascara – Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High vs Too Faced Better Than Sex

Another category I haven’t included in my project 10 pan… and this one was the most surprising as I thought you’d pick the new Maybelline Mascara… however Too Faced won as the score was 223 vs 233! Still a great mascara though, so not going to complain.

Lipstick – Mac Velvet Teddy vs Maybelline Lifter Gloss in Moon

I can’t believe 450 of you voted… but the result was a tie… 225 vs 225. So I did the only logical thing I could think of and applied my project 10 pan lipstick, and then used the Maybelline lip gloss over the top!

And this is the look I created…

Let me know what you think of the look?

Success! You're on the list.

  1. What a fun post!! I loved this and the products you used. Plus it’s always fun to have others pick out your makeup or outfit sometimes. Thanks for sharing with us!

  2. This is amazing idea, and I loved that look you have created. I have never come across a blog that creatively comes up with such unique idea or I guess I need to read more blogs 😅.

    I love maybelline mascara too. Haven’t tried wet and wild yet w.r.t. any make up products. I am not a make up person, though I love to see make up tutorials and see people create amazing looks.

  3. Excuse me while I add like ALL of these products to my cart. I’ve tried a few of them, like the NYX primer, Too Faced mascara, and NARS blush, but there’s a ton of others that I’d love to give a go! This was such a fun post to read through too. I love the way you utilized polls for it!

  4. Fun idea! I have seen ideas similar to this on places like Youtube and, of course, Tiktok, but I love that you have blogged this one! It is such fun to put out a vote and see how preferences line up.

  7. This is such a cool post idea! It’s great to get people to pick your makeup and it might make you use products together that you din’t necessarily think would work. Your final look is stunning. That blusher really suits your skin tone!
