Makeup Favorites

I love makeup. It's a form of expression for me. Sometime I'm in a mood for a dramatic lip, sometimes I just want a fresh, dewy face and sometimes I want to go all out. Hence, I'm in the constant lookout for the best and most versatile makeup products and while I know there are tons of lists out there but I like to compile my list based on my personal experience. So here are my latest favorites:
  • Nars NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette - This palette contains 12 shadows in a range of buttery matte, lustrous satin, and glittering metallic finishes. It has a versatile range of pale pinks, seductive nudes, and glistening rose golds that play well on all skin tones. I love to take this with me when I travel as I can create a range of looks with this compact palette.
  • Ciate Dewy Stix Highlighter - I have recently come to enjoy the wonders of using a highlighter and this highlighting stick creates the ultimate dewy skin complexion, with minimal shimmer.
  • Marc Jacobs Beauty HighLiner - This fabulous waterproof eyeliner is literally budge-proof. It works great in the inner rim of your eye or to line your upper eyelids. Furthermore by smudging it, it also works as a shadow.
  • Tom Ford Patent Lip Finish - This lip stain can stay on for hours. I love that you can create a glossy look with it or just stain your lips with the color.
  • Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner - The fine marker-like tip offers precise application for everyone from novices to pros and results in beautifully defined eyes that will leave a lasting impression.
If you try any of the above and have any feedback, do share!  


In My Makeup Bag Now!

I am a makeup junkie and love to try new brands and colors constantly. Just like everything else, I like to add to my makeup bag seasonally. After all it has to compliment the colors of the season. Can't wear that deep burgundy color lipstick with my spring pastels! ...continue reading the story called In My Makeup Bag Now!


Yummy, Nourishing Sugar Scrubs.

My skin is feeling particularly dry these days with the excess exposure to heat (thanks to hot showers and heated indoor rooms)!  And although, I am not a D.I.Y kind of person, I got excited by all the sugar scrub recipes on Pinterest and decided to give it a shot.
