In this post, I’d like to open up my makeup bag (tbh, I’m kinda scared).

I’m usually simple when it comes to everyday makeup – feline flick, nude lips, eyebrows, and I’m done. I consider it as natural when most people don’t, hehe. So here’s the breakdown in my makeup bag:

MAC Paint Pot in Constructivist


A rusty brown shade that I wear with heaps of mascara. I’m not that experimental when it comes to makeup, so this is perfect for a non-heavy finish. Also, it’s a cream, not a powder – perfect for long-lasting finish.

NARS Lipstick in Sabrina

At first I’d never thought that I’d pull off this shade, but surprisingly, it looks great with a tanned skin colour or darker. The best part – it has SPF20 in it. I’m quite sad that they discontinued the shade, but you can find similar ones in any NARS counter.

Diptyque L’ombre Dans L’eau EDT

I’m not gonna lie, this smells more masculine than what I would usually like. But hey, whatever it takes to attract the opposite sex!

I find that this is the easiest to apply for a bombshell ala Sophia Loren eyeliner across my eyelids.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

I have a combination skin, so moisturizing is very important to me. A canvas has to be smooth to be painted on.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

If I don’t feel like dedicating winged liner, I’d apply mascara. I like having goopy, babydoll lashes.

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler Gold

They are famous for a reason!

Stila Convertible Color in Petunia

I’m a massive fan of cream blushers as they look so natural. Sometimes I use it on my lips mixed with concealer for a muted, 1960s feel.

YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch

When you have dark under-eyes, this one gets rid of it fast.

So, that’s it. I try not to carry a lot because I don’t like to touch up much.

Let me know if you’ve tried any of the products above!
