Skincare : Lush Herbalism! Finally a cleanser that controls my production of sebum, without drying or irritating my skin. My skin looks so much healthier since i discovered this amazing product.

Haircare : Lush American Cream conditioner. That scent! And my hair has never felt softer before.

Make-up : Dior Addict l/s in Beige Dessous, MAC TLC in Fuschia Fix, Shu Uemera eyelash curler, Guerlain Rouge G in Gracia, Mac MSFna in Light Medium, .. all products i can’t imagining living without (seriously, i can’t!)

PS: I am still looking for a good foundation primer for oily/combi skin. Any suggestions?

You should check it out in your local Lush store 🙂 Its basically a green dough with chunky bits of herbs in it that gently exfoliate your skin. Once rinsed off, it leaves a little layer of oil on your skin, which makes your skin feel smooth and soft as a baby’s butt .. The only rant thing about it is definatly the smell .. It smells a little bit like a soury seasoning vinaigrette .. Also, this cleanser contains no soap, but thanks to the combination of different kinds of oil, it will also remove your make-up.

Gah, i could be a great Lush PR , dont you think :p

Lip Balm – Currently I’m using ELF’s lip conditioner in Vanilla and it healed my lips within an hour! Burts Bees and Say Yes to Carrots only made them worse!

Face Powder – I go back and forth between Revlon Colorstay and CoverGirl fresh complexion.

Eye Primer – Mostly UDPP. I put it on even when I’m not wearing eye color because my eyelids are so oily they naturally get greasy crease lines.

Mascara – Like UDPP, I wear this even when I’m not wearing eye color. My HG is CoverGirl Lash Exact.

Well, obviously I COULD live without any beauty product, BUT I wouldn’t like to live without mascara (preferably Guerlain Le 2) and black eye pencil (UD 24/7 in Zero), lip balm (Vaseline Rosy Lips), and some sort of a face powder. The rest is just extra (but great to have, lol). 😉

I really couldnt live without moisturizer, tweezers and lipbalm. I also really need mascara (Maybelline Define-A-Lash is a fave ATM) and pink blush to make me look half decent.

MAC #266 brush/espresso e/s for my brows
NARS Canaille lipstick/Sweet Revenge gloss and Lokoum cream blush
MAC Skin Mineralize powder/Ever Sun blush
black greasestick/technakohl – graphblack
Benefit – Honey Bunny creaseless shadow
UD – AMMO Palette

and this is only on the top of my head!

Mascara, I am a redhead and my eyelashes are very blond
MAC 50 spf prep and prime
MUFE camo concealor palette due to red/pink toned birthmarks on my face

Skincare: Chanel Exfoliating Cleanser, Neutrogena On The Spot Acne Treatment, MAC Lightful skincare line (moisturizer is so yum!), MAC VAE & VATM

Makeup: MAC Blacktrack Fluidline, MAC Feline, MAC eyeshadows in Blanc Type, Femme-Fi, Satin Taupe, Carbon and Espresso (all together make a really easy smoky brown eye), MAC O lipstick, MAC brushes, MAC Warm Soul MB, MAC Cherish lipstick.

I can live without makeup, but I cannot live without skin care products.
So, LUSH Herbalism as my day and night cleanser, Biore’s SkinPreservation Dual SPF30 Moisturizer for the AM, Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream for the PM, Boots Purifying Face Scrub.. Things like that. If I didn’t have these, my skin would be so much worse.

Moisturecover concealer for undereyes first and foremost(I lost a tube the other day and i freaked!!)
Lash Curler.
Studio Fix Powder.
MAC 187 .
Refined Golden Bronzer.

Those are the essentials.


brows – charcoal brown eyeshadows & 266
eyes – bare study, dazzlelight, naked lunch & soft brown with 217
face – foundation & MSF with 187 & 182
cheeks – warm soul & 109
lips – balm
and hand cream 🙂

I can NOT live without my toothbrush and face wash/ moisturizer! Hygiene is far more important! After that comes :
A primer
MAC #187
Tarte Foundation
Warm Blend MSF (or any kind of bronzer/blush)
Eyelash Curler + Rimmel Glam Eyes Lash Flirt
Lipbalm and a nude lipstick

Oh, this is hard hahaha.

Soapalaya Soaps Chamomile Calm face soap
OH Pick Me Up Tonic
jojoba oil
lash curler
Kiss Me Heroine Long & Curl mascara
Soapalaya Soaps Green Tea Lip Butter
DDF Organic Sun Protection SPF30

those are the absolute musts.

And the “I would feel very deprived without”:
brow powder (Anastasia duo)
blush (MAC Dainty or LM Rose Boom or Apricot)
lipstick (LM stickgloss, JI PureMoist or Dior Addict)

some type of brow filler – (i have a permanent hole in my left one from an injury)
moisturizer for those flakes around my nose
black eyeliner
and a lip product, just so my lips don’t look so dead!

foundation foundation and foundation …. oh why not add mascara too!
I have an acnee prone skin so the liquid foundation Parure extreme of Guerlain is a must have and as for mascara goes I like Maybelline 🙂

Rosehip oil – I use it as a moisturizer for my face and body, doesn’t break me out and leaves my skin so so soft and dewy.

Jane’s Clubbing eyeshadow – I use it as a liner and in a pinch, I could use it for a one-shadow-only smokey eyes.

Tweezers and epilator – Nuff said.

A good sunblock with a high percentage of zinc oxide – Currently using one by the Cancer Council.

Eyeshadow! I really cannot go outside my house without a good eyeshadow creating the typical shadow surrounding my eyelids… I simply don’t dare 😀
