Beauty Love #1: What's In My Makeup Pouch

Friday, December 12, 2014


I am not a makeup girl, honestly. Little girls normally want to wear makeup when they grow up, I think I am not one of them. The first and only makeup tool that I had when highschool was compact powder. Some of my (popular) friends in school used blush and lip gloss to school. Later when I graduated from highschool, I started to think maybe I need to be more girlie, so one of my friend (she's 5 years older than me and wears makeup daily) took me to mall to get my first makeup kits. 

But then, I abandoned my first eyeshadows, mascara, blush for almost two years. Out of nowhere, I asked my ex-roommate to take me buy some new makeup tools again, this time I promised myself to wear them often. And yeah, I didn't break that promise till today! 


Here on my makeup pouch are all my daily makeup stuff. I wear them almost every week, mostly when I go to church, casual day out with family or friends, for work, etc. Let's see what I have here: 

1. Maybelline Clear Smooth Aqua Gel Foundation (light beige) and Maybelline Clear Smooth All In One (natural) SPF 25 PA++

I am totally a Maybelline girl, maybe because Maybelline is the only one makeup brand that friendly to young skin and the price is friendly. I never get my skin problems since I used Maybelline. Sometimes I want to try another "department store" makeup brand, but I'm afraid they are too harsh for my skin. So for now, I just stick to Maybelline.

2. Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (black)

I am totally a sucker for gel eyeliner! The first time when I tried gel eyeliner, I was like "gosh, this product is totally created just for me!". I have monolid eyes, liquid eyeliner never works for me and I can't use it by myself (usually my eyes turn red and so teary). Gel eyeliner is just perfect for my eyes, easy to apply and last longer, even when I'm sweating lots, it doesn't smudge out. Eyeliner is a MUST for my daily makeup because it will make my eyes more open and bigger (especially when I have terrible sleep or hard cry night before). I heard Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner is kinda popular too, maybe I'll try out someday. 

3. Maybelline "The Falsies" Volum Express Waterproof Mascara 

Did I mention I'm a Maybelline girl? Haha. I used the other one before this, but the falsies is very nice too. Mascara helps me to make my eyes bigger too, but sometimes it sucks because I wear my glasses at the same time. You know, your mascara sticks with your glasses, ewhh.

4. NYX The Natural Shadow Palette

It's hard for me to find a perfect eyeshadow palette for an everyday look. When I found this at NYX counter, I know this is will be my perfect palette. And it really is! It's pigmented and the colors are so lovely. It can be used for casual wear and you can make a smokey look with this palette too. This is just perfect. One of my favorites too. 

And the other stuff I have in my pouch are eyelash curler, some of the bobby pins and hair tie, Sasa dual eyeliner and eyeshadow brush from Masami Shouku. Ah, I forgot to mention my lipstick, I got it from Revlon. But I need another brighter shade because my Mom said to me, a girl always needs a nice lipstick. And I'm thinking to get an eyebrow kits also a blush/bronzer palette. Any suggestions girls? (:
