My Everyday Makeup Routine

DSC02759

My routine lately has been pretty low maintenance, I must say. Since I usually frequent the gym after work I like to keep a light base. I literally just use the Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer as my base, but apply it mainly under my eyes chin and the middle of my forehead. But before that, I always(always) apply sunscreen. Right now, I use the Biore Aqua Rich sunscreen. 

Then I set my face with the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation in Fair Honey. This is a really good powder to keep you matte most of the day. It also makes a bulletproof base paired with the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation in Ivory.

Any who, I then apply my bronzer, blush and highlight(standard). I’ve been bronzing up with the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze-01 because I felt like I wasn’t giving it much love recently. I blush with my current favorite Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour Blush in Exposed and highlight with my new ultimate fave, Colourpop Supershock highlight in Lunch Money. It is seriously life changing.

For the brows, I amazingly still use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in Medium Brown because it still hasn’t run out yet! I must say that you definitely get a bang for your buck on this one rather than the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown. One the eyes, I just splash a little bit of depth in with the Bobbi Brown Holiday 2014 Palette and the K-Palette 1 Day Lash Perm, which really does hold a curl very well and does make you look like a Panda after a hot shower.

Lastly for the lips, I like to keep it simple. The Urban Decay Comfort Matte Lipstick in Stark Naked paired with the Revlon Colorstay Liner in Rose is a good low maintenance lip duo.

Sephora & US Drugstore Haul!

DSC01498

Hi there! I know hauls might seem a bit of a shallow topic to talk about sometimes. But whenever I get a bunch of new makeup, I usually give a TON away as well because TBH I don’t need as much anyway. I only have one face and apply makeup once a day(usually). But nevertheless, I still want to share with you all the bits that I got for Colourpop, CVS and Sephora. Hope you enjoy it!


I won’t be talking much about the bits I picked up from Colourpop because I made a separate blog post about it previously, so if you would like to see it, link here!!

Moving on…

When it cam to Sephora, I had a few purchases in mind. I wanted something new to review, something I hadn’t heard about before. I got the Dr. Jart+ Beauty Balm in Light-Medium. I have to say, I am quite excited to give this a review on the blog(who is with me?) The Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Lovely was also must to get or any other amazing shade from that line.

I needed to restock on my Rimmel London Match Perfection Concealer in 230 Fair because I use that tube of magic literally everyday. So much love for drugstore brands that have your exact skin tone for such a good price. I just had to get the L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation in 201 Light because the curious I am just had to. 

Powders are a huge necessity in my life. I use them everyday. So the geek that I am, I go through a bunch of compacts a year(about 3-4 a year). Imagine buying four high end powders a year?!?! Where the heck am I going to get all that money? That’s why I got the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Powder in 110 Porcelain and the Physician Formula Mineral Airbrushing Pressed Powder in Creamy Natural.

Another product that I use on the daily is the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

And of course, I had to get something skin care related! But this time its a repurchase, the First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser has got to be my fave cleanser. It never broke my skin out or irritated it.

Huge Colourpop Haul and Swatches!

DSC01216

So, I just made an order for Colourpop a few weeks ago and I am so not guilty about it. I mainly got products from the lip section because it is infamously known for their great quality and value. I mean $6 for something of that caliber. Damn!


The Colourpop has recently branched out too a bunch of other beauty ranges like powders, highlighters, eyeshadows and a ton of different collaborations with well-known beauty aficionados. But they are mainly known to have a wide range liquid lipsticks that range from Ultra matte lip, Ultra satin lip, Ultra glossy lip, Ultra metallic lip, Lippie Stix and many many more.

Since I had the chance to order some, I had to narrowed down the products that I wanted to what I actually needed(basically the shades that I can use to work everyday). I previously purchased Ultra Matte Lip in Beeper and the Ultra Satin Lip in Echo Park, and after some testing I thought that the formula of the Satin Lip was WAY more comfortable to wear than the Matte Lip.

DSC01198Let me start with the Lippie Stix shades… The Colourpop Lippie Stix in Boys Town Creme is a great rich creamy nude shade. This has got to be the most comfortable one of the bunch. Then the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Cami Matte is a matte dusty rose color. It isn’t too pink toned, which I like. While the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Hype Girl Matte is a bit to barbie-esque for me. I shall wait for a fancy dress party and try to pull of a Barbie make up look then!

For the liquid lipsticks, I was generally going for more of the Satin Lip spectrum. The Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Calypso, I found was a (sort of) dupe for the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Cami Matte. The Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Chi is a more brown nude but not too brown that of the Ultra Matte Lip in Beeper. It reminds me of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow, but a tad bit darker. While the Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Aquarius is a light pink-ish nude, not too barbie for my taste!

The cherry on top of all these has got to be the Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter in Lunch Money! It’s color pay-off is mind blowing! When you look at it with the packaging, it looks like a powder, but when you actually swatch it, it feels like a cream! It was love at first sight with this one! Watch out for some instagram looks with this new highlighter!
