Ok, I never write or post about make up before. I don’t even consider myself a make up sassy, I don’t know what’s the difference between BB, CC, and DD cream! ( Is there any DD cream or just my imagination? 🙂 ) So this post is not about how to apply the right blush on your cheek or how to contour your face (what’s contour?!) or how to apply a fake lashes in less than 15 minutes 🙂
I am sure all of you women, are wearing make up no matter how small amount you put on your face.
What is your make up for day-to-day? What is your beauty regime? Do you spend a fortune on make up brands or you choose a good quality and inexpensive makeup? In the morning when I get up, I wash my face and brush my teeth, then I put suncream on my face, which is very important especially in the summer and I tend to have freckles on my face, then I put bronze to add bit color, fill in my brows, and a light touch of mascara (more often I forget to apply it) and a lip-gloss. That’s it I am done in less than five minutes! Because you know what, in the morning it’s always a chaos in my household so I really don’t have lot of time to muck around with my face! When I have party to attend or a girls night out I tend to put more make up than my usual day-to-day routine.
I don’t really have a beauty regime though, I try to have facial once every three months when I remember. Sometimes when I am in the mood and have more energy I will exfoliate and put mask on my face, but that’s all I do to my face. I probably should pay more visit to a Beautician for microdermabrasion to get rid of the dead cells in my skin.
I don’t really spend a fortune on makeup stuff. I do invest in a bit pricey beauty products such as night cream and eye cream, other than that I opt for drugstore or budget ones. I used to splurge on the expensive and higher quality stuff, until one day I found out that the drugstore stuff is actually a rock stars! In my point of view all the expensive makeup stuff is not always better. You can save on some non-essential things like lip balm, eye-liner, or lipstick and splurge on things like night cream, moisturizer, foundation or makeup brushes.
Now my biggest dilemma ever in makeup thing is the brush! If you wear make up you must own a few makeup brushes for sure? How do you store your makeup brushes? Do you keep in a glass jars or keep them neatly tucked away in a case? I love the idea to keep them in a glass jars on top of a vanity table for easy access but I am worried about the cleanliness of the brush. Being out in the open air of course it’s easy to catch dust/dirt but then if they are stored inside the drawers it’s not easy to get them when you want to apply your makeup. I store my big brushes /face brushes inside the container and all the eye brushes in a glass jar. But sometimes I just don’t like to think that those brushes are catching dust every day.
I can’t bring myself to spend over $100 for a nice and cool makeup storage like this picture below. I would love to have one like this one day!
Instead I bought this container from Ikea for a mere $15 and so far it stores all my makeup stuff neatly, just wish it had more drawers like the above though!
So, I would like to hear from you what’s your beauty routine and what are the makeup products you can’t leave home without it? Tell me what’s your favorite beauty products you swear by!
Other than that, happy Friday and hope you all have a good week-end! 🙂
