Daily Look

When it comes to putting on makeup, I'm really not all that creative. Paired together with my night owl habits, I like to keep the steps simple and the process quick. I say it takes me about 15 minutes every day to 'put on my face'. Sometimes even quicker if I don't put any eye makeup on.



These are the items that I'm currently using. A few do rotate from week to week. But on the whole I am trying to take lilladylife's advice to pan out products by using the same products for at least a couple of weeks. Listed in the order that I apply the products:

1. Foundation ~ Becca Luminous Skin Colour Tinted Moisturizer - Toast
Right now my complexion is a lot darker than it was last year so I am relying on some foundation samples I got from Sephora for the time being. I also recently got the Sonia Kashuk 'beauty blender' sponge and I love makes almost all the foundation I've tried it with look light and natural on me.
2. Concealer ~ Bobbi Brown Corrector - Porcelain Peach
3. Blush ~MAC Cream Colour Base - Virgin Isle
4. Highlighter ~ Benefit High Beam
I've probably mentioned this a million times before but I really do love the natural/dewy look. To achieve this effect I either use the Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer or the more classic highlighter. Whether I use one or the either depends really on the type of foundation/base I use. If it's a more matte BB Cream or foundation⇢Etude House Nymph Aura Volume. If it's a pretty light and dewy already like some foundations or tinted moisturizer⇢highlighter.
5. Powder ~ mark Powder Buff Natural Skin Foundation - Buff
When I powder depends on what type of blush I wear. Usually I like to powder as the last face step to set a cream blush rather than having to set the blush with another powder blush.
6. Eyeshadow ~ L'Oreal Infallible - Iced Latte (all over lid) & Bronzed Taupe (outer half of lid)
7. Eyeliner ~ Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Eyeliner - Shimmery Brown liner from the Nude Eyes set
This is my favorite eyeliner. It's also the only one I've tried so far that doesn't transfer onto my lower eye area within the first hour (or sometimes even less) after applying. However, this was the only one of the three in the set that I really like. For some reason the black smudges like all the other brands' eyeliners that I've tried and the champagne color is just too light to use any where other than the inner corners of the eyes.
8. Lips ~ Lioele Blooming Pop Pinky Tint

What are your daily makeup routines like?

    1. Not always :X Since I wear glasses and my eyes feel tired 90% of the time, I tend to not apply mascara a whole lot. But I'm trying my best to integrating it into my routine!

    1. Thanks! I haven't not worn glasses in years...so it feels weird seeing myself glasses-less xD
      My skin here was on a good skin day. The because foundation is pretty light and sheer in coverage. I recently used MAC face and body again and like the results even more. But I do suggest going to get a sample to try because this one isn't bad for the good skin days

  4. your eyes... are SO pretty!!! even though you didn't wear much the effect is awesome!! make your eyes look so huge (jelly!!!!!) and yet so soft. You actually kind of resemble one of my roommates... just a bit. hehehe. you don't wear mascara? you have amazing lashes (if I take a picture when my eyes closed I see nothing XD) by the way your skin looks really clear compared to the last time you posted a pic of your face :D

    1. Ah my skin is not this clear anymore. I recently have been having ridiculous amounts of breakouts *sigh.
      I still haven't gotten use to the feeling of wearing mascara. But I'm trying! & my lashes only look long with my eyes closed LOL they are so shorty stubby and straight. Which is really strange because my mom has amazing long and naturally curled lashes (for an Asian too)
