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

20120314-185948.jpgi’ve put in foundation, tinted moisturizer, cheek tintssssss, eyebrow liner, eye liners and lipstains 🙂

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.

oh and wish me luck… going for our teambuilding tom… paintballing! im scared!!!

where to get the products:

pretty when pinched – all bench outlets

benefit benetint – greenbelt 5

mufe – boni high street or shangri-la plaza

laura mercier – essences

thebalm stainiac and k-palette – beauty bar

tarte (available abroad)

revlon just bitten – department stores or drug stores

i try to rotate my makeup look at a weekly basis because it’s just so painful if i need to decide on both clothes AND makeup everyday! :p

because of this, i decided to start posting FOTWs as well, usually my FOTW will be a more subtle and wearable look because it is something that should be work appropriate 🙂 oh and since i usually put on my makeup in the office, it has to be something easy to do!

here’s my first FOTW:

photo taken with iphone :p
oh btw, i got a new haircut! 😀 i HIGHLY recommend oliver of vivere salon in SM Megamall 🙂

Products used:

Makeup Forever Mat Velvet + (my NEW favorite liquid foundation – reviews to follow… but i can say, this is holy grail product!!!)

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural to set the foundation

MAC brow pencil in Brunette

Nars Ondine Eyeshadow (all over eyelids)

Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Caviar Ink

Makeup Forever Lift Concealer

NARS Mata Hari blush (it wasn’t THAT intense in real life!)

Laura Mercier lipstick in Duchess Rose

this is a very easy look to wear. 🙂 hope you guys like it! 😀

happy weekend everyone!

mwahs,
