THE MAKEUP POST


BASE


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.


CONCEALER


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!



BB CREAM




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


POWDER



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.


EYELINER




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. :)




EYESHADOW



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. 


BLUSHER


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.




HIGHLIGHT
