BEAUTY BUZZ : WHAT'S INSIDE YOUR MAKEUP KIT? (REVIEWS AND SWATCHES)

What's inside your makeup kit? Today, I wish to share with you my classic makeup finds. It's not much, just bare necessities. Each item is carefully researched and thought-of before I got them (just ask my friends). ☺ I'm quite stingy when it comes to makeup but I see to it that my go-to items have acceptable quality. And since quality and price is equally proportional (generally), most of them cost more than our usual drugstore finds.


FOR THE FACE 
If there's one thing that you should be spending on in terms of quality, it should be facial care. My usual routine starts with 2 pumps of Olay Total Effects Moisturizer. After 2-3 mins, I dab a pea-sized amount of primer on my face. Lastly, I put on MAC Studio Fix Liquid Foundation (in NC 35). I usually use my fingers to apply them all.

FOR THE CHEEKS
You wouldn't believe how much LIFE blushes can bring to your cheeks! This usually makes you hoard the remark, "You're blooming today!" My favorite between the two is the pink one. I use the coral shade whenever I need a warmer vibe. Otherwise, the pink one is my staple. I got the SKIN FOOD blusher when I went to Seoul last year. If you're curious about the blush-on, it's from Makeover Essentials UK, review HERE.


FOR THE EYES
Or should I say, lashes? You may have noticed that I don't apply eyeshadow in my everyday routine. I don't know why, but I'm yet to find more time to master the art of 5-minute eye shadow application. Moving on, my recent purchase is from K-PALLETE, I got their eyeliner tattoo and currently road testing such. For detailed review on the other two items:

FOR THE LIPS
And now, on to my most favorite makeup arsenal! I am personally inclined with pink shades and matte types. Part of the reason I guess is that I apply makeups only once a day. I don't usually do retouches. That's why matte lipsticks are on top of my lips. The setback of course is mattes tend to dry up your lips, that's why I included another optional item. 


There has been a timeless debate whether makeup is good or bad. Like money, make up is a neutral thing - it can either enhance your overall look or otherwise. With the right amount of makeup, a sparkling eyes from your heart and a big, sincere smile - you'll conquer the world in no time. Have a good day, Beautiful! xoxo -CMK
