im it!...routine & award

Sorry if im not able to post the awards & tags that my fellow beauty bloggers gave me. Its really such a nice feeling when someone appreciates me..
*sniff* *sniff*

i so love being a beauty blogger!

Let's start this one!

This award is given by Verina... & i have to say that this is quite tricky because there are a lot of beauty blog that i really love.

The rule is:
nominate 12 blogs that you love to read

I don't think i can narrow my favorite blogs in just 12. So im breaking the rule...Everyone should have this award for i think everybody is a winner! Having a blog takes time, effort & passion & that is what we all have so you all should take this award!

Thank you for dropping by my blog & showing love & support.

Now lemme just do the tag...

I was tagged by Anastacia
& Jbreezybaby on doing the makeup/daily routine tag. So these would be pics of the products that i use most of the time.

As what i said before, i dont really put makeup that much...especially since bf doesn't want me all made up. He just told me that he prefers the simple me. And also,i work at home so i really dont have to use makeup everyday.

But whenever i go out i make sure that i put something on my face. I'll show you the products that i mostly reach...

Let's start with my 'non-cosmetic' products:
These are what i used to keep my skin clean & moisturized:
  1. Moisturizer - Celeteque Moisturizer
  2. Acne control - Zen Zest Tea Tree oil
  3. Eye Cream - Nivea Q10+ eye cream
  4. Makeup Remover - L'oreal Dermo-expertise eye makeup remover
I really don't use that much on my face. Now that i have acne, putting more stuff on my face just irritates it. So i use celeteque because of these reasons. Tea tree oil is an anti-bacterial therefore its a must for me since celeteque doesn't have an 'anti-bacterial' properties. I love the L'oreal eyemakeup remover because of this. Review on the Nivea Eye Cream is about to be posted...

Then on to the brushes. We all know that brushes are important, & i love all of my brushes,but if im going to narrow it down to basic ones, ill choose these:
I don't really need a lot. Blush brush is a must have, even for those who are not familiar with cosmetics know a blush brush when they see one. I use a kabuki brush in applying finishing powders evenly. Im not a foundation user, right now i use bb creams & i use my hands in applying it.
For eyemakeup, eyeshadow brush to pack the colors & blending brush to blend it out.
  1. Blush Brush - Ecotools blush brush
  2. Face Brush - Kabuki brush
  3. Eyeshadow brush - ELF eyeshadow brush
  4. Blending brush - ELF blending brush
Im guilty of using my hands in applying most of the stuff that i use. Brushes are necessary, but i still find my hand to be the best tool in everything. XD
That's why these would be my basic brushes.

On to the cosmetics...

For eye makeup, these are what i use:
  1. Highlighter - Everyday Minerals Pressed Powder in Olive Fair
  2. Eyeshadow Base - Chapstick
  3. Liquid liner - Fashion 21 Liquid Eyeliner
  4. Eyeshadow Primer - UDPP
  5. Mascara - Maybelline Lash Stylist
  6. Brow Duo - Fashion 21 brow duo
  7. Pencil liner - Ever Bilena eyeliner
  8. Eyelash curler - Fanny Serrano lash curler
If im going out with bf (which is often) i only use liquid liner,pencil liner, primer, eyebrow duo, mascara & lash curler. If im gonna meet with gf's (which is quite rare),then i use my 88 palette for doing a full eye makeup.

Now for the face makeup:

  1. Lipstick - Avon Ultra Color Rich in Sheer Pink
  2. for glowing look - MAC loose powder in Drizzlegold
  3. Finishing powder - Coty Airspun (i always use but since i ran out of rice powder, this should do)
  4. Lip Moisturizer - Nivea Lip balm in Strawberry
  5. Highlighter - Victoria's Secret Mosaic Highlighter
  6. Face base - BB Cream
  7. Blush base - Stila Colour Push ups
  8. Lipstick - Revlon Lipstick in Soft Silver Red
  9. Blush on - Mineral Blush (though you can't see it because its at the back of BB Cream, but there HERE to know it)
In my case,i start with BB cream, then blush base, then the powder blush,if i need highlighting, i reach for VS mosaic powder, if i need a sunkissed look, i go for MAC drizzlegold & ill top it off with finishing powder. For lips,im quite happy with lip balm, but if the occasion calls for a bolder lip,then use my lipsticks..

There...pretty simple!

Now time for the tag. I choose these ladies:
its quite long...
plus im using a flexible keyboard& im having a really hard time typing because i have a very light touch & this keyboard suits those that have heavy hands...

but then i have to say that this is nice because its quite...i just wondered if ill ever get used to this keyboard..such a shame...its cute because its pink!ill show you the pic tomorrow..

Well,that's it!

Hope you are having a nice weekend,hunnys!

Jaa ne~!
