Makeup Request Photos
Wednesday February 23, 2011
Sachie asked for a total makeup picture of all my current makeup including the unopened stuff I talked about last week, so here it is! Sorta, :deco13: and more, haahaa! :!?: I realized I hadn’t done a total makeup roundup since June and a bit has changed. :ok: I went ahead and separated everything by makeup type. :P And it goes without saying, no, I don’t wear all of this every day, haahaa~ :dizzy: I wear maybe 1/4 of it a day if not 1/8th. :deco7: Obviously different items are for different & various looks. :ok: Though some things are repeating, like having 3 pink blushes open & in use at one time. :ng: Multiple mascaras I use depending on the look I want that day. :make: And I have a few opened black liquid eyeliners because I was trying out a few new ones and ended up not being exactly what I needed :deco13: so opening/buying another type ensued! :deco9:
BB Cream, Foundation, Concealers, Powder, Setting Spray
I use these the most daily. Typical day includes BB Cream + concealer (both liquid and under eye type) + powder
I don’t use the foundation much since I like my my BB Cream more but I at least always use my powder every day. :deco10:
Blushes, Highlights, Bronzer
Currently my daily makeup includes the Highbeam and a different blush from my Shu Uemura palette below. But these I tend to switch up the most! I wear the other powder highlighters a lot, every other day, the bronzer too, and the Cosmagic Deco Blush I’ve been wearing a lot lately.
The orange blushes I tend to wear more often in summer so I haven’t worn them much lately, maybe once or twice a month. Same with Stila Shimmer Highlight, it’s so golden I wear it for summer more.
The Tarte cheek stain I used to wear constantly when I only wore only face powder and not BB Cream so often.
Nars and Anna Sui blush I switch out a lot but haven’t used them much this month.
I think blush is easily my favorite thing to buy~ :deco2: For a long long time I was too scared to wear blush because growing up I thought only harlots wore it and it looked “too fake” for a girl “like me.” At least that’s the lesson I got from my Mom concerning makeup “how to’s.” But a few years ago I abandoned the blush fear and embraced overtly pink’end and orange’d cheeks! ^_^ :deco5: NEVER LOOKING BACK! Now if I have to rush makeup I at least wear tinted powder AND blush if I can’t wear anything else!
Eyeshadow Primer, Eyebrow, Mascara
Use a shadow primer, eyebrow pencil + powder, and mascara daily. I just switch up which ones for different looks~~
The tiny UD eyeshadow primers were a collection gift at xmas each with different colors/effects. :deco9: I never wear shadow/liner without applying a primer first or else it’ll crease/smudge.
All waterproof mascara since it’s the only type I can use. I have 2 of the Maybelline Falsies mascara in different black shades. I love these mascara a lot for drama. L’Oreal Double Extend fiber mascara is fantastic for all day wear and length plus it’s the only mascara I can wear on my lower lashes with smudging or transfer turning me into a raccoon! The other is Fairy Drops Curling mascara~ best curling mascara I’ve EVER tried.
Oh that eye-rever upper is for dark circles, it’s like a shimmer vitamin cream but I don’t feel like it really works very well :drops:
OK I has so manyyyyyyy
The first is Blinc’s super lasting eyeliner. It goes on really thick and stays all day. I haven’t used it much lately because I like thin liner more right now.
Next two are pencil liners, Anna Sui black & Dolly Wink brown. Both I use when I’m in a hurry. Been using the brown one a lot lately!
Next 3 are black liquid liners. My favorite is Wink Up Maxigrade’s because it has a nice, not too thin, tip. The next two KATE and K-Palette REAL LASTING EYELINER I like for filling in gaps or using first as a base under pencil liner or if I want REALLY REALLY thin eyeliner line. The tips are very thin and take a bit longer to apply so I don’t use these if I’m in a hurry.
The rest are either colored liners or glitter liners :deco12:
I like KATE brand best :deco10: Others are Urban Decay, Hard Candy, Victoria’s Secret, etc… The pink KATE palette is unopened right now. I don’t wear as colorful of eyeshadow as I used to, it’s just not appealing to me in recent months aside from metallics. :lol:
Lip glosses and lipsticks! OK this changes nearly every day too ^_^ Some Candy Doll, some Mac, some Canmake, some Stila, and a few unopened Melliesh :deco10: Actually half of these are unopened~~
Still can’t decide between Lash Grip or DUO. I like both for different reasons but I feel Lash Grip lasts longer on my oily eyes. Haven’t used Dolly Wink’s yet and waiting. My Lash Grip is nearly empty anyway so I’ll be opening it soon.
Shu Uemura Palettes!
I use these the most right now. I bring both to work with me. I use these eyeshadows and cheek colors nearly every day lately :ok: I could honestly just lose the rest of my shadows and cheek colors and wouldn’t panic too much if I still had these. These are AMAZING. :deco3: I’m thinking maybe switching to just buying these in the future as my other makeup runs out… I dunno, it’s very convenient and very high quality. Plus these collection palettes almost always have an assortment. These both have 3 shadows, a gel liner, a cream highlighter, and a cheek color. :deco12:
Figured I’d include these :deco4: :up:
The hanging one holds most my makeup and I switch it out makeup with the heart pouch which I take to work every day~
The Shu Uemura pouch is only for carrying my Shu Uemura palettes and a glitter liner or something small! Haahaa~~ and of course unopened and replacement makeup goes in the little hanging pockets I posted last week~~ :ok:
This was kinda fun to focus on for a bit. :) Lately all I have on my mind is the chance for a government shutdown. :;_;: If that happens I’ll be out of work, no pay, for possibly weeks. :mad: Thankfully, I guess, I’ll know by March 4th. Till then I need distractions, haahaaa! :ok: Thank god for spending freeze though. Saved money might be a serious necessity soon, lulz+fail.
I keep browsing websites like shopnastygal.com. :ng: :ng:. I need to hold off for just a bit longer :P :?:
