Recent Favorite Lip Combo

When it comes to my lips, I’ve been quite fancy recently, if I may say so myself. Usually, I would just dab some lip balm or grab an “my lip but better” lipstick (discussed here) and dash out of the door. But I’ve been really into the lipstick + lipgloss combo – lip liner is still a one-off occasion for me, I’m just too lazy in the morning. Two of my favorite combos are: Lipstick Queen Lip Pencil in Nymph + Nars Lipgloss in Chelsea…

A Rather Large Bobbi Brown Haul

I’ve been on a self-imposed “no makeup purchase” restriction for the past couple of months, and have been doing it quite well.

Packing Makeup for Business Trip

Because of my work, I do travel quite often, usually once every other month. And if there is one thing I have learned through all the travels, that will be how to pack a compact makeup bag. When I first started packing makeup for travel, I would always over-pack. For example, I would bring 5 blushes for a week (yes, I have a serious problem with blush), multiple lipsticks, and way too many eyeshadows. In my head, I was planning to create different looks every day…

The Winged Eyeliner Journey

It may sound a bit ridiculous and crazy, but I spent practically the entire 2014 on figuring out the appropriate everyday winged eyeliner shape and finding the perfect eyeliner. To me, eye makeup equals winged eyeliner and a bit of mascara, my struggle with eyeshadow is a whole new post by itself. Also, when I analyze my own face (which believe me, I do it a bit too often), I realized eyeliner is one single thing that makes the biggest difference on me. It gives…
