Pretty Please

As I promised, here it is..  Some of the make up that I wear when I go somewhere nice. I'm not the type of girl who wears make up everyday. I only put them on when I feel that I need to look nicer. Heavy image posts! Warning ;p Again, this post is NOT SPONSORED. If you want to buy make up, make sure that you've read reviews of them and sure that you've tested them on your skin. It's better to splurge your money on something that will "touch" your face, remember price equals quality. I bought my make up at (a forum) go to the market plaza section where you can get all kinds of make up with affordable price (cheaper than retail).

Bare Escentuals Warmth / Bare Escentuals Mineral Powder / Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil / MAC Studio Fix+Powder in NC35

I use BB Cream or tinted moisturizer when I feel my face is dry, if they're not that dry I'm going to use mineral powder as my base. As for my lips, I have a lot of lipbalm as you can see below, that's because I have a very dry lip. I need to moisturize it anytime I can. I like lipstick more than lipgloss. 

As for the eyes, I always use NARS Smudgeproof for my eye base, in order to keep my eye make up in place. This is really helpful, because it will make your eyeshadows color go "out" and keep your eyeliner stay in their place. I think the best black pencil eyeliner goes to Urban Decay 24/7 and the best mascara is Chanel Inimitable. Don't forget Shu Uemura eyelash curler, seriously the price worth every penny, if you're Asian you should buy this. It was design for Asian eyes, so the structure of the curler fits perfectly on our small eyes ;)

Yes. I have a lot of blush. In the same color/shades. My favorite blush nowadays goes to MAC To The Beach Marine Life, it has such nice coral color. My everyday blush would be Benefit Sugarbomb! NARS Orgasm is a great blush-bronzer.

Now, onto eyeshadows. For you on the tight budget, you should get a Coastal Scents palette, because they a wide range choice of palettes. But in my opinion, this one is really just perfect because you get so many shades of eyeshadows, and you get a nice 6 shades of BLUSH! I gotta say, best eyeshadow goes to Urban Decay, the colors are so rich, very well pigmented and they last all day long with the help of UD Primer Potion/NARS Smudgeproof. I bought the Alice in Wonderland palette because of my love of Disney, and the NAKED Palette is just the perfect everyday palette. Worth every penny.

I am a hygiene freak, even though I'm messy, but I'm not sloppy. I use hand sanitizer all the time, I'm kinda addicted to it. I've finished my first Carex bottle in 2 weeks. I'm moving on to the next bottle. LOL. Dude, this thing saved me from diarrhea.
