summer is here! it’s time for those “waterproof” makeup to take the limelight 😉
sharing my favorite products that i usually take with me and wear when i go to the beach. NOT all at the same time ok? haha
for eyebrows, i like to use my K-palette real lasting eyebrow liner because it really lasts a long time and usually doesnt budge! i usually don’t wear eyeliner if i know im hitting the water, but for lounging and what not, i sometimes do. i prefer the MUFE aqua eyes (in dark purple) because it looks less over the top (what? you’re wearing make up to the beach?) and really highlights my brown eyes. but if im going clubbing and i know ill be sweating in the humid beach weather, i like to wear my k-palette real lasting eyeliner 🙂
for cheeks – as you know i loveeee me my blushes 🙂 there are times where i skip all makeup and just wear blush to the beach. here are my favorites bench’s pretty when pinched cheek & lip tint (cheap and very effective), benetint’s benefit (the MOST coveted lip & cheek tint), tarte lip & cheek stains – i like this because they are easy to carry around. you dont have to worry about breaking the glass (unlike bench and benetint). and it’s sooo easy to use. you just need to swipe and blend blend blend!, theblam stainiac – perfect for carrying around because of the size! very travel friendly. although i find this harder to work with compared to the others.
im obsessed with lipstains at the moment! i’ve tried the one from covergirl, but i must say that these are so much better! it doesn’t taste like ink (like covergirl) plus it comes with a lip balm. the problem i had with covergirl was it look a bit patchy sometimes and it can be too drying. these lip stains from revlon are awesome!!!!! 🙂 very pigment, build-able and definitely lasts a long time.
i usually skip foundation / tinted moisturizer but sometimes, SOMETIMES, my vanity gets the best of me 🙂 my choice of products are the laura mercier tinted moisturizer and MUFE mat velvet+ (which says it’s water resistant). both products are oil free. let’s face it… lounging around under the sun will make you oily so you DONT need extra oil 😉
well that’s basically it! 🙂 oh i make it a point to wear lots of sunscreen.
hope you girls find this post useful. my nxt post will be a FOTD using these products.

Went to Singapore last week of October for work… Of course, I didnt pass up the chance to visit Sephora at Ion Orchard. 🙂
Here’s what i got:
1. clarisonic mia – because of this i got a $40 voucher which i used to buy the UD baked bronzer with!
2. benefit christmas gift set – set includes primer, mini foundation and the famous benetint (i actually got another set, but gave to a good friend of mine :))
3. Urban Decay book of shadows – this is soooo cool!!! 🙂 i got a mini UD speaker with it!
4. a lot of FREE sephora primer
5. free lip gloss
6. eye lashes 😀 hope to use them for our christmas party next week!
7. Urban Decay Primer Potion – got it free because i got another $40 voucher
8. Urban Decay Bronzer – free 🙂
from the haul, i’ve only used the clarisonic mia. i must say, it’s not as harsh as i expected! i actually expected that my face will feel raw after using it. not the case at all 🙂 my skin feels soooo soft and smooth afterwards 🙂
