I’ve really been loving these products recently, so I thought I would make a post on the beauty/skin products that I’m currently using.
My holy grail item – the NAKED Palette (Urban Decay). I use it almost every day, whether it’s for a darker eye, or just for a sheer shimmery wash across the lids. I first discovered it through various Youtube Makeup gurus who were raving about it, but didn’t actually try it out until Sami let me see hers at Otakon! I love it, totally worth the money! Sometimes I use darkhorse and smog as liners if I want something softer than liquid liner.
Fresh’s SUGAR lip products. I use all of them because they are so wearable! Swatched them here. I use Rose the most because I like it the best, although I have been using the clear lip treatment (dark red tube) and patting some peach blush over the top to get a nice matte peachy lip.
I’ve actually taken these pictures a while ago, so I’ve actually switched out my Maybeline Dream Matte Powder (in Sand) to my Luview Pressed Powder Compact because my skin is getting lighter for winter.
Also using Imogen Rose solid perfume from LUSH quite often for a lovely rose scent. Right – my makeup bag!
Top is my Lioele Eyeshadow Trio – mainly use it for the shimmy champagne shade as an inner corner highlight. Whenever I use contact lenses, or if I have red eyes in the morning, I use my Rohto Lycee eye drops. (Love them!) As for liquid liners, I use Dolly Wink and Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto. I use Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion to prime my eyeshadow, but I only use it if I’m going out/want the shadows to last for long periods of time. Top is my Skinfood Dark Circle Salmon eye concealer, it’s got quite heavy coverage and hides my eyebags (no sleep in university, cry). Finally, a black kohl eyeliner pen (not sure about the brand, it rubbed off.)
Maybelline’s Megaplush Volum’ Express Mascara. It’s great for lengthening. Doesn’t really volumize, but creates nice fluttery eyelashes!
These St.Ives Fresh Skin cleansing cloths do a great job of removing face oil and makeup, but aren’t too drying! Also decided to try out Pond’s dry skin cream as the change in weather is really drying out the skin on my face. It’s probably the best cream I’ve tried out so far, super moisturising! Definitely recommend it! (It’s pretty cheap too, I think it was like $7 at Shoppers Drug Mart)
