girl talk | everyday makeup

Morning, guyss!! ❤️ I thought I’d do a little post about the makeup I currently use on a daily basis. I’m a routine type of person — no matter how much makeup I bought, I’ll end up using the same makeups until they hit pan. So far, none of my makeup has hit pan except for my Bobbi Brown Colour Corrector and my NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (girl gotta conceal those dark spots).

I started wearing makeup when I was 20 years old. It was not until a few years later that I started buying more makeup and develop a routine. I’ve tried a lot of makeup styles and now I can say that I’ve found a style that I like. I see makeup as a form of art — I like to play around with it.

.

I learn a lot about what I like and don’t over the years. I know that I prefer nude lipsticks than the dark, bold ones. I prefer nude blush than the pink or coral ones. And bronzer on the eyelids is great if I want to add a bit of definition to my eyes.

.

I feel like my face looks a bit more fresh and presentable for any occasions with this kind of makeup. I really enjoy getting to know myself a little bit more in terms of my likes, dislikes, and what suits me.

.

This is not meant to be a tutorial, but more so a look into what I use. Okay, enough ramblings. These are the current products I’m using for everyday makeup!

Mask: I try to use mask everyday, whenever I can. Since my skin is very sensitive I have to make sure that my skin is squeaky clean before I put on any makeup. I’m currently alternating between Pixi Mud Mask, Caolion Premium Blackhead Steam Pore Pack, and basically any random sheet masks.

Cleanser: Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Purifying Cleanser Gel or Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Skin Brighthening Exfoliator. It took me ages to find cleansers that truly cleanse my face without overdrying!

Toner: Pixi Glow Tonic. I contemplated for soo long on this toner because I thought it’s one of those hyped up products, but Haireya finally got me into buying this and I’m loving the toner!

Moisturiser: SKII RNA Power Radical New Age Cream — I’m just using this one because it’s there on my vanity trolley. I have my eyes on the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream. But I’ll wait until I finish this one before purchasing it.

Primer: Laura Mercier Radiance Primer and Make Up For Ever Step 1 Mattifying Primer. I combine this two together. I use the Make Up For Ever primer on my T-zone and chin, and use the Laura Mercier’s on the rest of my face.

Foundation: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation or NARS Sheer Glow Foundation or Lóreal True Match Liquid Foundation (depends on the coverage and the longevity of the foundation that I wish for the day).

Concealer: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer or NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer. I live for concealers! Hahaha 😝 (not joking though). I have pigmented acne scars that I wish to get rid of. I have used up two tubes of the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer — that alone says how much I love it.

.
Mascara: Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara and Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara. And guys, the Shiseido eyelash curler is a staple! If I’m not using the two combo, I’ll use the Lancóme Grandiose Mascara or any other mascara that I get as samples. #cheapstake

Eyeshadow (optional): Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze. I use this just a tiny bit to add a little dimensions to my eyes. If I’m wearing eyeshadow for the day, I’ll prime my eyelids with the Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer.

Blush: MAC Coppertone Blush. It’s the best nude blush for my skin tone. No need to say more.

Lips: MAC lip liner in Hover and Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Ashton. I think I kind of lost my MAC lip liner though. I couldn’t find it anywhere and it’s been a couple of weeks already. 😞

Setting Powder: Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Pressed Powder in Banana. I like my skin to look radiant, however, I don’t want it to have too much radiance. So this setting powder does a good job in mattifying and setting the foundation and concealer I put on before.

And, yes. I don’t put anything on my brow on a daily basis. Too much work! I hope you enjoyed this little update. I love having a nosey into everyone’s makeup bags and I also find it useful to see what others are loving so I thought you’d like to see mine too. ❤️
