Before I start with my makeup, I have to fix some issues with my skin, if it’s one of those days where its unbelievably dehydrated, I would use Liz Earle moisturizer. The second thing I would do is apply Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye cream which is the perfect base for concealer. I have this issue where I feel that every time I apply concealer my under eye area gets darker and darker, and concealer is not something I’m willing to let go of, so I got this product for the purpose of using it as concealer base. However, there is an issue with this product if you start applying your concealer immediately after you applied it, your makeup is going to look greasy and flaky and all kind of things that you don’t want to see, you HAVE to wait at least 15 minutes before starting up with your makeup same goes with moisturizer.
Moving on to the next step, I start by using MAC prep+prime to help increase the lifetime of my makeup. Now with all the fun not colorless stuff, first I would apply concealer on any blemishes or scars and also under my eyes, I recently purchased Chanel correction perfection concealer, I really like it however I still do believe nothing can top up my previous Cargo concealer that I’ve previously mentioned I’m really upset we no longer have it at Sephore, I don’t understand why every time I get hooked on something they shut it down, it seems that I jinx products *sorry producers* .. anyway I fell off subject there, for the perfect foundation I like to mix MAC studio Fix nc25 with Chanel Mat Lumiere 20 on my heart paw palette using MAC 190 brush . If you’re a mac user you would know that sometimes their foundation could get a bit to yellowyy and this is why I love mixing it with a lighter foundation to get the perfect coverage. After I’m done with the foundation I would blend some more using MAC 130SE brush. then to brighten up my eyes I apply a teeny bit of YSL radiant touch in the corner of my eyes. Because I used fake tan on my body my face need to be tanned as well, A spray of Soap & Glory Glow Getter
Afterwards, I use collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer under the peek of my eyebrows. then fill my eyebrows with Bobbi brown eyeshadow in the color Rich brown 11 using Bobbi Brown eyebrow brush. For the eyes, I used urban decay eyeshadow primer potion. The Eye shadows I used were by MAC Nylon and Tempting applied each using Bobbi brown Eyeshadow brush then blended them using MAC 217 brush. Then used my ultimate favorite eyeliner Penultimate eyeliner in Rapidblack & finally applied my new favorite mascara Limited edition MAC Opulash Optimum Black mascara.

It’s finally the “What’s in my bag” blogpost that you guys wanted to see. The reason I did not do one earlier is because I’m the kind of person that would go out with an empty bag. I’m not even exaggerating, I’d literately just go out with a bag that contains absolutely nothing. Not even my phone *because it’s always out of charge*. Nevertheless, there would be those rare moments where I would actually carry tangible items in my bag and today was one of those moments so I thought to myself I should finally do the post!
What’s in my cosmetic bag: Laura Mercier silk creme foundation, MAC 130 brush, Inglot lipstick palette, Giorgio Armani eyes to kill mascara, Maybelline dream lumi touch concealer, Hand Maid by Soap and Glory, A super old Hello kitty mirror that is not even mine *I stole it from my sister* hehe. I had few nail polishes because I have a two hour long break and I thought I’d color my nails. I couldn’t pick what color I wanted at home so I just packed them all: Tomford in Smoke Red. Essie in Hot Coco. Topshop Nails in Big Smoke.
Let me know if you would like to see “What’s in my bag” regularly xo.
Few people have asked if I have ever tried drugstore makeup and my answer is always “No” so I thought I’d change the answer to something else..
I really like trying on new foundations and I have heard so many good things about the Revlon Colorstay foundation so I thought I’d give it a try. I wouldn’t say it’s the best foundation but it’s pretty good, I liked it’s texture the only thing is it does not stay as long but that’s probably because I picked up the normal/dry skin one instead of oily/combination skin which is my fault not the foundation’s fault. But overall I’d say it’s good not great.
I also picked up the Maybelline Dream Lumi touch highlighting concealer the first time I applied it, I did not like it at all and the second time I kinda felt a little bit better about it.. so I’m not really sure how I feel about it quite yet.
Collection 2000 Lasting perfection concealer. I absolutely love this! It conceales pretty well yes but I also love it for another reason. I don’t tweeze my eyebrows, I bleach them so sometimes I’m left with little brand new hairs and they usually bother me SO MUCH this was the perfect solution for it I would just apply a little bit under the peak of my eyebrow where they usually appear and it will hide them like magic and actually prefect the shape of my eyebrow. I don’t use it as my main concealer because I love mine more but I do use it daily for my eyebrows.
I got maybelline Flared mascara and Cat eyes mascara. I LOVED that flared mascara so much! it does not smudge at all which is a huge appreciation and most mascaras give me a headache -yup it’s pretty weird I’m pretty sure i’m the only one who gets mascara headaches- this one is too light that it doesn’t give me on. on the other hand I hated the cat eyes it’s the exact opposite too heavy on the lashes and smudges like crazy
