Ok, I just recently posted a photo of my make up kit and what are the things inside. As promised, I’ll be sharing my thoughts and why I am using every item in my kit.
I am actually in a process of learning to apply more make up. Believe me or not, I still use baby powder(I know, I am such a late bloomer) as my foundation sometimes just to avoid having oily skin. But I am 30-ish so I really have to learn to put make up sometimes most especially on our date night haha!
So, let’s get started! The key to my blooming daily look(hahaha):
1. I’M LIP Crayon by Meme
I just love this matte lip crayon. This is what I always wear when I go to work. This does not stain as I kiss my hubby goodbye and drink my coffee every morning. I do not have to retouch until after lunch, which is pretty awesome. I’m Lip Crayon is not a typical crayon or pencil type that you have to sharpen. Just twist the bottom and it’s ready to use!
2. Eyeko eyeliner
One of my fave to do when it comes to make up is to highlight my eyes. I do not use much of the eyeshadows but I never leave home without my winged tip eyeline. I have tried a lot of kids and brands of eyeliner. I tried, different brand of pencils, gel, and pen. The number 1 on my list is the EyeKo liquid eyeliner pen, from slim to thick as long as it’s Eyeko, I just love them all. Why? Because it is so easy to apply. The tip of the pen does not bend and neither sharp and the liquid ink is so solid that you do not have to do second application. It looks like you are using a sharpie marker! Haha. It lasts all day that I do not have to do a retouch.
3. Iman Press powder
One of my flaws are my pores near my nose/cheeks area. Iman pressed powder is a Light-as-air translucent formula controls oil without drying to provide a totally matte finish. It also makes the pores light to invisible as it goes on smoothly and gives you a fantastic finish as it blends on our skintone.
4. Revlon Photofinish cream blush
I have been using blush on from shimmer, powder, tint until I tried the Revlon Photofinish cream blush and stick with it for years. Some people say, Revlon stopped producing this but I am still finding this online. It is so easy to apply that spreads evenly on your cheeks. I like the way it naturally shines as it highlights your cheeks that it looks like almost natural rosy cheeks.
5. Kat Von Dy lipstick
I was looking for a maroon shade lipstick. I got MAC Ruby Woo but I want something with a little bit touch of brown and not the bright red. As I was at the Fashion Mall, I passed by Sephora to check all the maroon shade lipsticks until I laid my eyes on Kat Von Dy lipstick (hexagram) oooh, it is just a hottie! Just the container itself stands out among the others. I tried it and bam, this is the one I am looking for. It looks shiny but once you applied it, it dries like a matte and I am impressed, it stays longer than I thought and it doesn’t really stain like the other lippies! This is the shade that you must have if you want to look sophisticated or stands out on a night out!
So how about you, what is in your kit? Mind to share with me and tell me what kind of make up you like the most?
