My Current Favourite Makeup Products

So I was quite old when I got into the makeup game.  Even now I own a very limited amount of makeup products, especially when compared to my sisters.  Over the years - and since my last blog post about makeup - I have come across some really good makeup finds that have become a staple in my makeup routine.  And I really wanted to share these staples with you, since I feel like I have really upped my makeup game since my last post about makeup. 


This eyeliner goes on really easily with nice precision. The best part: it is easy to use for a beginner like me because it has a marker/pen tip! It is also quite opaque so you don't have to go over it.  It holds up for the entire day and if you are someone that suffer from seasonal allergies its water proof feature makes sure it won't come off with watery eyes.  

I love the way this mascara goes on: separating my lashes and coating them fully.  It also goes on super black, making it a great go to on nights out when I'm wanting a bit of a dramatic look.  This Mascara is best known for adding volume.  

After lots of trial and error I have finally found the right concealer! Although I don't wear that much makeup day-to-day, concealer is probably the most important piece in my makeup bag...why? Because being of South Asian descent, plus having allergies and sometimes not sleeping well means that I have dark circles! And this concealer is amazing because Nars has a wide selection of shades making it great for people of different skin tones.  This is very important to me since that has always been my frustration when trying to find a concealer that matches my skin tone.  The Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer is light because it's creamy, it blends in really nice, and provides medium to full coverage.  This Radiant concealer goes on really smooth and is hydrating. 


So I recently got into the highlighter game. It doesn't mean you'll see me doing strobing or contouring + highlighter. It's just a simple highlighter here and there and that too if I'm going out. So if you are looking for a highlighter, then this Becca highlighter is a favourite for many! It's a creamy illuminating powder highlighter.  The shade that I use is Opal which is a golden opal pearl.  It's not too chunky, the glitter is not super glittery, and it hits the light properly.  


This Kat Von D - Loilita has quickly become my go to everyday lip colour! Loilita is a brownish pink colour.  It's a matte liquid lipstick. It doesn't transfer and is not as drying as other matte lipstick.

  1. I desperately want to try that Becca highlighter and the Kat Vom D matte lipstick .. I have seriously heard so many people rave about both!

  2. I have tried (and loved) all of these but the Kat Von D...still on my list of unpurchased items! In fact, seeing this post is reminding me of how much I loved the Nars concealer.
