Makeup Essentials




First after cleansing my face, I would apply this Collagen Moistfull Facial Freshener from Etude House before I put on my makeup. I just like how it makes my face have that extra "clean" feel and it closes up my pores.

I have been using this MAC Strobe Cream for almost a year now and I am on my 2nd bottle. It retails at about $56SGD. It is definitely worth the price because I use it on an everyday basis (Monday to Friday) and it lasted me for about 8 months. So if you were to calculate, that it's like investing $7 per month for this. I love this because it helps to balance out my uneven skintone and keeps my makeup even. It has a slight luminous sheen to it so I guess you might expect a bit of "luminosity" to your skin once you have blended the product well.


The coverage of MAC's Pro Longwear Concealer is very good I would say.Retails at about $29 SGD for a small tube. It covers up my eyebags really well and is buildable to only a certain extent. Usually I will use a concealer brush and pat it around the V-shape of my eyes

And blend well and you are almost done!


The best BB Cream in my opinion is Dr Jart's BB cream in Silver. Retails at about $39SGD if I'm not wrong. The only sad thing is that it is not waterproof. Coverage wise is pretty good and it lasts for at least 5 hours. Your makeup still looks fresh


I use both of MAC Studio Fix Powder and the Loose powder. Retails around $56SGD. Usually if I feel that my skin is good and all, I will just use the loose powder.


K-PALETTE 24 HOUR LONG LASTING WATERPROOF EYELINER. Goodness me, that is quite a mouthful but it is a pack of awesomeness in a tube. I have at least 5 of this in my house. 2 in my makeup bag and the rest are just kept. I cannot live without eyeliner. Maybe I should/could do an eyeliner tutorial one day. :)


My very first high end eyeshadow palette, the Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette. Retails at Sephora at about $72. I got it for my 21st birthday from my sister

Swatches of it.
My most used colors though from the naked 1 would be virgin, sin naked and half baked.I personally feel that this palette would be flattering if you have yellowish skin undertones.

One of the most products which I was anticipating for late last year, Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. Retails at about $82 i think. Really pretty and it is suitable for all skintones. All rose-goldish and pretty pretty. 


This is from too-faced. I got it at Sephora Jem a few months ago where they had this 2 product for $30. I can't recall the shade this is in but its pretty peachy pink with gold shimmer. 

NARS Orgasm Blush. I managed to find a dupe and that is from Sleek Rose Gold Blush.  It looks almost 90% similar I would say but Sleek has a more stronger gold to it. I got this Sleek Rose Gold Blush from an online seller over at Carousell for only about $12. NARS Orgasm Blush is retailing at probably $70 something. So if you want something similar, you can try to get this from Sleek.
