Get Ready With Me!

It's literally been coons age since I last updated my blog and this is also my very first post in 2k14! I bet nobody even noticed that I did not have my blog updated in quite a while but if you noticed and kept on checking back for a new post then it's no doubt my bad to keep you waiting. 

Anyway, while I was "away", I wasn't being productive at the slightest. What kept me busy was The Carrie Diaries, Glee, American Horror Story, 2 Broke Girls & Awkward. I feel like everyone needs to watch all these TV series, well TCD at least. I got quite a handful of people that I love hooked on TCD, American Horror Story as well as Awkward! Enough blabbering about my life because we need to move on to the actual point of this post before I bore anyone of you. 

Right after I get out from the shower, I will always apply my all time favourite face toner. I'm pretty sure most of you would know by now that I adore the Tea Tree line by The Body Shop!
I'm not going to go in too deep about this toner because I've blogged about it in a couple of my previous posts. Basically, this toner helps to control oil and close my pores so that there won't be any clogged pores when I apply my make up!

I have really sensitive and oily skin which makes it a necessity to apply a primer to conceal all the visible pores, create a smooth canvas and control the oil. I have an extremely oily face and it is unfortunate that Benefit's Porefessional does not really help my face to stay matte throughout the day. Other than that, it does wonders to my visible pores!

We all know that I only use Revlon Colorstay. I've been wanting to try out Covergirl Outlast Foundation though but the only thing that's stopping me would be the fact that it's only available online. Don't get me wrong, I am a sucker for online shopping - just not shopping for make up online! I will always get worried sick if it's the wrong shade or what not. Anyway, I have been applying my foundation with a damp sponge from Cala! I no longer use any concealer on my face (except under eyes) because it will get kind of cakey through out the day and it bugs me so bad! So, to get the most coverage out of the Revlon Colorstay Foundation, I will gently dab on the foundation instead of "gliding" it on my face!

Using my MAC Moisturecover Concealer, I only apply a layer of it to conceal my ridiculously heavy and dark under eye circles.

What's new? We all know that the only thing I use to fill in my brows would be E.L.F Eyebrow Kit! I've hit the pan in case you didn't realize!

I adore the Naked 2 palette so so so much. I would love to own the Naked 3 palette but for some reason, the shades don't attract me at the slightest! The packaging is however a beauty. I'm using Foxy for an all over the lid colour and using a blending brush to apply Halfbaked on the crease and slightly highlight my lids.

Curling my lashes is extremely important in my make up routine because it does wonders to your lashes! It makes your eyes look a lot more rounder, bigger and awake. I'm currently using my Revlon eyelash curler and here's a tip: heat your curler with a blow dryer for 5 secs to give your lashes an extra lift!

Recently, I purchased a new product from Essence. It's the Lash Mania Reloaded mascara and this is my fifth mascara from Essence. I promise you that Essence has the best mascara in town! I actually prefer this than my Benefit They're Real mascara. It does smudge as bad as Benefit They're Real. I mean whatever mascara I use will smudge at the end of the day but Essence Lash Mania Reloaded is by far the best mascara for me - it does smudge but only a tad bit and it gives my lashes the spidery effect which I love!

I've been using this bright coral blush from 3 Concept Eyes a lot recently because I feel that my face looks kinda "dead" and dull. It's not cakey and the shade does not look overwhelming at the slightest! It definitely compliments any outfit or make up look.

I avoid bronzers and powders on my face because I have pretty bad skin and they make my face look very very very cakey. Having said that, I use Urban Decay's De-Slick Make-Up Setting Spray to give my make up a dewy finish and at the same time keeping my make up in place through out the day!

I actually take 45 minutes to get ready for school every morning. I know.
