My Daily Makeup Routine

What's your guilty pleasure? Mine is watching daily makeup routines on Youtube for hours on end (seriously). It's pretty interesting to see how different people do different things to their faces, especially when everyone has their own unique styles, face shapes, skin tones, eye shapes..
I'm going to be honest here (and I've decided to be nothing but honest on this blog - anything else would be against my morals) and tell you that unless I'm staying at home all day, I really do wear makeup every single day. ..BUT SERIOUSLY, DON'T FOLLOW IN MY FOOTSTEPS THOUGH LOL LEMME TELL YOU it's so bad for your skin!! As soon as I get home and make sure I don't have any plans for the rest of the day I wash it all off. I don't know if it's just me but I find doing my makeup every morning super therapeutic and I love it.

Anyway, enough with the rambling :T Here's how I do my makeup every day! (and here is me somewhat reluctantly revealing my no-makeup self.. T_T Pls prepare yourself and don't be too shocked ok lolol)

HAHAHA WTF ok la not that much difference. But I look more tired T_T Sleep more everyone or else you will regret it like me lolol

L-R: Peripera Blur Pang Banana Milk Blur Primer, Benefit POREfessional Primer

I start with applying a bit of primer on my face. Even though I obviously don't use both at the same time, I use these pretty regularly so I decided to include both of them here. The Blur Pang is a little bit on the light side and has a greyish undertone so I use that really sparingly. Today I used the POREfessional!

 The Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer

Next, I apply concealer on my undereye area (my dark circles are soooooo bad lol I love not sleeping!! Whoooooo!!!!!!), on my brow bone (for highlighting) and any spots or acne scarring that I have. Also, I totally recommend this concealer - The Saem's concealers are reeeally good :>

Innisfree Longwear Cover Cushion

I then use a BB cushion to even out my skin. I really like this cushion - I can't say it's my absolute favourite yet but the coverage and colour is perfect for me!

L-R: The Face Shop powder brush, Revlon ColorStay Pressed Powder

Gotta set my base makeup with some powder. You can tell how well loved this powder is lmao look at that pan..

 Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder

I have hooded eyelids and oily skin so if I don't put a little powder on my eyelids the foundation there creases weirdly so I use a powder puff to set it in. I also bring this out with me for touch ups for the rest of my face.

Vocemoda contour brush, Bobbi Brown Classic Eye and Cheek Palette

Since my face now looks super pale, I'll add some colour back into it with my favourite (and clearly well-loved) blush. I got this little palette with a Bobbi To Go set a really long time ago so I don't think it's available anymore, but the blush shade is in Desert Pink. ..I'm just now realising how dirty the mirror is lmao oops

L-R: The Saem contour brush, Too Cool For School Art Class by Rodin

It's time for shading! I'm actually quite noob at shading lolol but I try my best because my face is naturally really round and I want to hide that a little bit. Sometimes when I smile I kind of look like that moon emoji. Seriously. As you can see, I've hit major pan on this product too. It's kind of a trend with all my powder products here..

 Kiss Me Heroine Make Volume & Curl Mascara

My favourite step in my makeup routine for sure - mascara. I don't have extremely short lashes but they're not that long either, and they stick out straight (#asianlashproblems lolol) so this mascara saved my life. I like the formula of this mascara but the wand's a bit chunky - I prefer the Long & Curl Mascara wand much better. Either way, both products keep my lashes curled and visible all day long and I'm devoted to this brand. Also, I can't remember where I got this eyelash curler T_T Maybe Watsons?

I used to put on brow mascara when I had brown hair (highly recommend Etude House's Color My Brows!!) but I haven't been able to find the right shade for my new hair colour just yet :( If anyone has any recommendations please let me know! I might even start using a clear brow gel.. For now, since my brows are naturally quite thick, I just use my eyebrow razor to remove any stray hairs and brush them out with this spoolie (which is actually an old brow mascara wand lololol).

L-R: Burt's Bees lipbalm, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa

Lastly, I finish off with my lip cream from NYX. The formula of their lip creams are just too nice T__T plus I love lip products in hot pink/magenta shades!! I wear this so much that I'm actually running out of it.. Which reminds me, I need to go get a new one soon.

Victoria's Secret Love is Heavenly rollerball perfume

I know this isn't makeup, but I put this on everyday so I'll just include it as well. I really like super sweet scents, and my entire perfume collection is made out of VS perfumes.

Ta-daahh :D Looking a bit more awake now!

And that was my everyday makeup routine ^ㅡ^ It isn't much (I wish I could do perfectly blended eyeshadow and sharp af eyeliner wings but T_T due to my eye shape I'm not so good at eye makeup..) but I hope you enjoyed it regardless!
