first impression is always important. you wouldn't want to wake up looking like a ghost to meet someone new or attend an interview underdressed and not looking your best would you?
i'm not beauty or make up expert but i'm just here to share on my daily essentials and what's in my make up bag. hehe~~~
for daily look, i usually go for something more natural. that explains the products that i'm using. and oh, i have sensitive skin, therefore there are certain items and brand that i may not be able to use sometimes :( boohooo...
i've tried using foundation previously but i don't like the thick make up effect although it does cover up my flaws. so i usually use BB or CC cream which is much lighter.
on the face :
- Chanel CC Cream Pink Beige
- Mac Mineral Concealer
- Laurier Mercier Eye Concealer
- CC Powder
- Marc Jacob's Blush (Irresistible)
as i have quite chubby cheeks, i opt for shadow bronzing on my sides with an angled brush as well as highlights for my flat nose.
for shading & highlights
- Sephora Bronzing Powder
- Benefit High Beam
finally, my eyes. i have naturally big eyes but they always looked sleepy which is why i always have to at least put on eyeliner or mascara. but to make it sparkle a lil more, i opt to natural shades or rosepink and brown shadows. as for my eye brows, i'm using shades from my Naked Basics Palette.
on the eye brows
- Naked Basics
on the eyes
- Naked 3 (Rose Pink & Shades of Brown)
- Kiss Me Liquid Eyeliner
- Dolly Wink Mascara
i'm not really a fan of lip colours, so i'll usually skip that step.
or you could always opt for an even more basic look without the foundation (at least with sun block), draw your brows and perhaps eye liner. simple make up does help boost a lil confidence, so give it a try and perhaps with a lil make up on, u might get a little lucky!
