“Makeup is meant to enhance your features.”

It wasn’t long ago that I discovered that I love makeup. I don’t wear heavy makeup whenever I’m at school. Even at work, I don’t need to because no point in putting up a face at the Kitchen. Haha. Anyway, I think it started when I wanted to change my makeup routine in college. I was breaking out most days. I turned on my laptop and browsed my internet to search for a suitable makeup for sensitive skin. That’s when I discovered Mineral Makeup. Since then I was hooked on makeup. I saved my allowance to buy a decent Makeup brush set.

Nowadays I just wear a lot of eye makeup and just use BB Cream, concealer, blush and mascara. But when I dress up I wear a complete look of course.

The only time that I can dress up nowadays is when I’m on my rest day and going somewhere.


Etude House Skin Malgeum Smoother, Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer Combination Skin, Etude House Sunprise Cotton Touch Powder Cream Primer

When going to work, I just do my daily Toner, Moisturizer and Face Sunscreen. hmm Did I say I am an Etude House fan? haha. Korean makeup is good for my skin anyway.


MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Medium Dark, Garnier BB Cream in Medium, Ever Bilena Mousse Concealer in Honey Beige, Ellana Intensive Coverage Loose Mineral Concealer and Foundation in Almond Latte

My first MAC makeup was this face powder and its Mineralized. haha.

To add color to my face:


MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Dark, Stila Convertible Color, Shawill Makeup Blusher 004, Ellana Blush in Bloom Mineral Powder Blush Happiness

I need to contour because of my chubby cheeks hehe. Shawill’s makeup is very pigmented for a cheap price.

Eye Enhancers:


Maybelline Eyestudio lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 01 Black, BH Cosmetics Eye Shadow Primer, In2It Waterproof Eyebrow Color 01 Eyebrowns, Nichido Mineral Kohl Pencil Onyx, Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal 005 Nude, Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil 02 Hot Chocolate, Covergirl Lash Blast Fusion and Lash Blast Volume

My simple makeup includes these stuff. I mean the nude and brown liner, browkit and brown mascara for a natural look.

The palettes that I love:


Pinkies Collection (Not sure what are the names), Beauty Cosmetics 88 Neutral Palette

Because I love Neutrals. This 88 Palette was my first eyeshadow palette I think. Look at that brown shadow almost hitting pan so I am still looking for a similar color as my contour shadow.


BH Cosmetics 120 Color Palette 2nd edition

I just woke up one day and realize that I barely wear color on my eyes and it’s time for me to try other colors besides the neutrals.


BH Cosmetics Malibu California Makeup Palette Collection

This palette is good for travelling. It has neutrals and pop of colors, has a blush and highlighter as well. Love the turquiose blue btw.


Carmex moisture lip balm, Maybelline Baby Lips Color, Hawaiin Tropic Lip Balm Stick Sunscreen, Etude House Soft Touch Auto Lipliner (Pink nude), Color Essence(Not sure what shade), Fashion 21 Color Mood Mystical Mauve. Wet n Wild 906D, Essence Lipstick 01 Coral Calling

I love Lip products especially lip balms. I always have carmex or anything on my bag. And I am not a fan of red lipstick. Im more of a pink girl. hihi


Nyx Matte Finish Fini Mat, Etude House Lip and Eye Remover

Because I am Oily skin, I need a decent finishing spray. And of course I need makeup remover. hehe

Most days, I would just go with concealer, brows and lip balm and off I go. haha
