Happy New Year’s Eve!
Let me wrap this year by sharing my most used makeup items this year. What is your most used makeup items? Mine actually, would be eyebrow pencils, eyeliner, and bronzers. But I won’t be lazy here so I’ll talk you through most of my favorite products in 2017 for (almost) a full face – especially the one I actually take to travel with me because you know those ones must be gooood.
I used up so many pencils this year, that I might actually thinking of buying a powder palette instead to save $$$ and the environment. My favourite eyebrow pencil is still the Maybelline fashion brow pencil, but lately I am quite loving the cheap-quick-and easy retractable one from Tony Moly.
My everyday and the one is easiest to apply is an eyeliner from the local brand: Mizzu cosmetics. For a more precise, thinner lines, I’d go with the Maybelline hypersharp liner (it has a good lasting power, too!)
I don’t wear eyeshadow every day, and if I do wear them to work, it’d be mostly one or two mattes color on the crease to define my eye shape. My every day palette is surprisingly the L’oreal La Palette Nude in Rose, and the warm shade from the Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette.
My favorite, favorite, favorite product for daily complexion is this Bourjois CC Cream in shade 34 ‘Bronze’ which I bought from Sephora black Friday last year. However, since I knew that Bourjois Indonesia is no longer bringing this certain shade for the national market, I use this less and less because I want to save as much as product I can for when I travel. It applies and blends beautifully with fingers and stays all day! *heartbroken*
I’d take any matte bronzer, the one I have been using a lot lately is this one from Collection Makeup UK. It costs like £3, it has just about the right undertone for my complexion. I rarely use blush by the way, so I won’t put one here.
My favourite discovery for the year on the lip department is definitely the Zoeva Pure Velour Liquid Lipstick, the formula is very pigmented, lasts forever, and non-drying at all. Another favourite of mine is Indonesian brand BLP Beauty, the shade ‘Maple Waffle’ is a perfect everyday nude for me. It just adds life into my face without being too bold/ too nude.
