My Everyday Makeup Routine


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.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Tinted Primer Review


If you haven’t noticed yet, I am (kind of) obsessed with Tarte bases. I think this one will be my 4th(?) already. I don’t know I keep loosing count. I picked this up on my trip to Australia last year. I wasn’t really in search of anything in particular, but since I am a creature of habit, I just had to get something ‘base’ related and then I stumbled upon the Tarte BB Tinted Treatment in Light! Ugh, can I just say this just BOMB! 

I just had to pick this up because my research told me that this (bb) cream was an all in one skin care, makeup invention! It is basically a primer, moisturiser and a light foundation. 

On application, the primer is matte on the skin and spreads evenly really well. I use this on top of sunscreen, even if it already has SPF 30 in it. The more SPF, the better! I feel that I don’t really need to add another base product on top of this because it’s consistency is a bit (thick), but not like too thick. 

I prefer dotting this all over my face then spreading it with one of those tooth brush brushes(not an actual toothbrush!). I instantly felt the difference of smoothness on my skin after applying this! It definitely aids the process of makeup application!

This also holds up well through out the day. I mean, I live in a tropical country, what can actually stay in place on my face for the whole day? The struggle is real! The more important aspect is that this product doesn’t slip and slide around my face during the day. 

Did I mention that this product is Vegan?!


I wish this came in a larger packaging because right now it is only 1 oz. 😦

What’s Inside My Travel Makeup Bag | September 2016


By the time you are reading this, I will have already landed in the land down under! I will be travelling around Australia until early October with my brother. But don’t fret!, the bi weekly posts will still be on schedule and I will be throwing in some Australia bits in between. I have a lot of interesting things in store for this blog.


Okay, I am going to be honest and say that I won’t be talking about each product in detail on this post because I don’t really have the time at the moment. I am currently in the state of packing and trying to remember what things to take with me(I have a lot of shit). Check out the links of ALL the products on this post below to get them yourself!

So here it goes, I didn’t want to bring such a big makeup bag for me on my trip because I will be out and about everyday on adventures in the Australian coasts and mountains(HI, mom!). But I still wanted a loot that gave me options… Because a girl always needs options! I kept in pretty low key on my makeup bases with only bringing light to medium coverage foundations and moisturizers, 3 shades of concealers(very important), 1 bronzer, 2 blushes and 1 facepowder. See, very low-key.

L’Oreal Nude Magnifique Cushion// Kiko Make Up Milano Soft Touch Blush in 108 // Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light // Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed // Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 10 Light // Benefit Erase Paste in 1 Fair // Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory // Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil in Light/Medium Bronze // L’Oreal True Match Concealer in N1-2-3



This part is where I get a little crazy! Except for the fact that I just brought a tiny eye shadow palette, 1 paintpot, 2 highlighters and 1 mascara. Although I went a little bit over board on the lips because….(no legitimate reason). But come to think of it, I have only 5 lipsticks and 3 lip pencils that are all different shades(I swear). Bringing two brow products are a must because we all have to those bad brow days(I am making that up). 

But in all seriousness, I just wanted to take products along with me that I will actually make use of on my trip. A kit that would give various basic bitch makeup looks for me to try everyday.
