Today i nak share with my readers the things that i use almost daily, that is makeup. Who doesnt love makeup? Which girl in her right mind doesnt want to look pretty kan? A little makeup goes a long way. Always, always, always try to put on a bit of makeup. Not only it'll make you look good but bila orang tengok, sejuk lah mata memandang kata orang.
So here are the things that i use ...
#1 Makeup Base
I use Shu Uemura UV Underbase Mousse SPF30. Its great. Everyone should use this as their makeup base. Lepas tu i'll put on a bit of Benefit That Gal on my cheekbones, browbone and a tiny bit on my nose bridge.
For daily use i'll just slap on some BB cream. I use Skin79 Hot Pink Triple Functions BB cream. But if keluar i'll use a proper foundation. Currently im using DiorSnow Sublissime Whitening Liquid Foundation SPF20. Dont really like the texture but sebab tak nak membazir im still using it sebab i dont use much pun. I find it hard to find a suitable foundation for my skin color. Sometimes the color is right but i hate the texture, texture okay but color pulak tak suitable. Thats why i prefer to pakai BB cream than a foundation because of its light texture and it blends into your skin well. But the downside is that BB cream ni not much coverage. Letak 1 or 2 layer you can still see marks/spots/scars wtv on your face.
I use Benefit Confessions Of A Concealaholic. I love this concealing kit because it is so handy! Everything you need to use to conceal anything on your face is in this kit. To conceal the dark circles under my eyes i use Erase Paste and as for spots, i use Boi-Ing.
I usually use a loose powder sebab i dont really like hate using a compact one. But of course a compact one is handy when you're out of the house. As for loose powder, i am using Benefit Matterial Girl. Love this one! Definitely buying another one after this. Compact powder pulak, im using Chanel White Essentiel Light Reflecting Compact Foundation SPF25.
For my brows i use two things yang i pakai ikut mood. If im in a rush i'll use Benefit Speed Brow. This one is the bestest brow mascara yang i pernah pakai. Eventhough nampak the color brownish but when you color your brows, it'll look natural so try this one out. You wont regret it! The second one is The Body Shop Brow & Liner Kit. This one kalau rajin nak lukis baru pakai. Untuk tweeze brows i use The Body Shop Slanted Tweezer.
For eyeshadow base i use Benefit Lemon Aid. Lemon Aid ni pun dalam concealing kit Confessions Of A Concealaholic tu. Like i said, the kit is very handy! Eyeshadow pulak i use alot but mostly from MAC because of the colors and quality. Pink Freeze Frost and Silver Ring Veluxe Pearl, these two colors i selalu pakai. After im done putting on eyeshadow, i'll dab a bit of Benefit Miss Popularity or Benefit Mr Frosty dekat bahagian hujung mata (dekat hidung) just to make my eyes look spark-lier.
Mascara pulak i have alot. From the pricey ones to the cheap ones, i use it all. As long as it gives me good result, i dont care if its cheap or not. I use DiorShow Iconic Extreme Mascara, Avon Super Curlacious Mascara, In2It Clear Mascara, Avon Simply Pretty Long Lash Waterproof Mascara, Lancome L'Extreme Mascara and Lancome Virtuose Mascara.Virtuose from Lancome is my favourite out of all. The Avon mascaras are for daily use, whenever i go dekat dekat. Honestly, why waste putting on a RM100 mascara if you're going to Tesco right?
#7 Blusher & Bronzing Powder
As for blusher, i usually stick to one color and so far pakai this one dari dulu, tak pernah tukar. Its MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Peachykeen. And whenever i feel like having J.Lo's bronze skin i brush on some MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Light Flush (Sadly this color dah discontinued. Its really a nice color. Guess i'll have to search for similar color of it after this). And for maximum bronzing effect i'll use Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick For Body Set. I know its for body usage but i use it on my face ha ha its the same thing they use to make it anyway so who cares? And of course i use it on my body too!
#8 Lipstick / Gloss / Tint / Balm
The ones i always use are Benefit Benetint Lip Balm SPF 15, Kanebo Coffret D'Or, MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF15 in Gentle Coral, L'Oreal Color Riche Made For Me Naturals - Rose Skintone in Rose Petal and my favourite yang paling selalu pakai is Maybelline Watershine Pure Lipstick. I love this because wearing it alone, your lips dah nampak moist so you dont have to put on gloss or wtv on top. And i hate lip glosses thats why this lipstick is my favourite.
#9 Finishing Touch
The last thing i put when im done with everything is a beauty powder for that glowing look. The one im using now ... the Emanuel Ungaro for MAC in Flower Mist Dew is really nice. Its limited edition and sadly its finishing. Another beauty powder that i use is Benefit Dandelion. This one the color is lighter than the MAC one, so its suitable for daily use. And for a night out i usually dab on some Benefit High Beam on my checkbones and brow bones for that extra glowing look.
So these are the things that i use on my face almost everyday. I dont use alot although i have alot and i dont like to try new products without reading the reviews first. I dont like to waste money on products that doesnt work well on me. Dulu yes but now im more choosy and loyal when it comes to buying makeup products.
Just remember one key thing, an expensive makeup product doesnt always mean its suitable on your skin or that it'll work well on you like it did on your friend.We have different skintones so always try to get something that is good for you. Dont buy it because it looks good on others. And makeup products ni mostly ada short lifespan so dont just buy buy buy and then tak pakai and few months later bila nak pakai dah expired.
Stick to what you know that looks good on you doesnt matter if its cheap or not. Yes of course pricier products the quality bagus BUT, without good skills ... pakai lah makeup beribu ringgit pun, tak guna jugak kan? And whats the point of stocking up tons of makeup when you dont even use it? *cough* Nak bagi hantu Opera Cina pakai ke? *cough*
Wasnt feeling the Lanvin collection for H&M but changed my mind when i saw these couture dresses. Oh my. But why via bidding only? Hmphhhhh! So unfair! :/
Im loving the first couture dress. Bright yellow color lepas tu pair it up dengan kasut tu, im so feeling it! And the fourth couture dress too. I have always, always, always suka feathered skirts! Pair it up with a handsome boyfriend blazer, and voilà!, you're good to go!
Bila tengok all these pretty dresses rasa macam nak buat another event pulak before the year ends. I have Chuck Bass' Saints And Sinners party in mind. Because i already have a perfect maxi dress! Ha ha. And because i am crazy about Gossip Girl, duh! Or should i do a 'Blair Headband' party as an excuse to get my hands on those pretty Sereni & Shentel's headbands? Im feeling Kuching Cat and Bow Down. Heck, even my sister wants one ( ... or two, or three).
Christmas present please mommy.
Bow Down in Navy
Kuching Cat in Black
PS: Those wondering; Kuching Cat is RM130 while Bow Down is RM200. You can get the headbands at thepoplook.com or fashionvalet.net

Dah lama tak update blog, too lazy to write hehe but i have so many things to write so i shall do it entry by entry okay ...
A friend of mine is getting married next month and 2 weeks ago we threw her a bachelorette party in our room at The Zon. Intan lah mastermind behind all this. I found out about this last minute and luckily Intan and Ida bought everything so Wani and I just pinjamkan our room to celebrate. They bought her a cake too! The black forest cake sedap! Im salivating while typing this ...
The badges; Wild, Sexy, Flirty ... apa tah lagi yang lain dah lupa
Lepas habis celebration we went for supper kat Lodge. I want their porridge now now now, sedapppp!
Mission lepas ni nak cari material buat baju for Eva's wedding in January. I dont know what design should i do ... no idea yet so far. Gotta google ideas for the bridesmaid's outfit ...
I am exhausted. Not feeling well since 4 days ago. Fever, headache, flu ... But alhamdullilah im feeling much much better today. So many people kept on calling my cell ... customers, friends, strangers ... so tired to answer. I feel like an operator already.
I have been going out a lot, and by alot i mean a lot since few weeks ago. It was all good. I had fun with my friends. But last week when that someone dropped the bomb on me (why unexpectedly of course ...), it made me speechless and numb. I dont know what to say. Its so hard saying 'yes' and its even harder to say 'no'.
So what do you do when your mind is saying no, but your heart is saying yes? Please tell.
