Tag: Beauty Routine

This is my (very small) vanity desk- I really want a new one! Arrgh!! *tearing my hair out!* I've been nagging about it constantly to my fiance that it's way too small and I can't see all my stuff since its everywhere! Plus, it's an eye sore that I wake up to every morning and it just makes me feel blah! I need a new table!

Anyways till I get a new table- I will let you see the mess that it is now and maybe I will do a before and after shot- I an hoping he will get me something new for my birthday in October! hehe :P

NOTE: This is considered a clean version of my table. It's a total mess 99% of the time!

Now, to the tag from gorgeous blogger Jbreezy! Thank you:) It's supposed to be about my daily beauty routine- I think! So here is my "usual" routine, I would usually mix it up a bit when I have time - weekends are great for experimenting:)

Firstly, my base! I am loving my Laura Mercier products at the moment. They make one of the best foundations and powders!

  • Silk Creme Foundation- So creamy, so blendable, moisturising and gives amazing coverage without the heavy makeup look. It's purrrfect!

  • Undercover Pot- I know, I go on and on about this product! Sorry but unless you try it yourself you won't know what you're missing out on.

  • Mineral Powder Loose Powder- It's a very fine and silky! I can't go without a pat of this on my makeup to set it. It's one of the best powder formulas around I think!

  • Foundation Primer- I use this if my skin feels like it's dry and flaky....not really sure if its the best primer but it's alright!

My everyday makeup routine is using a mixture of the above:

  • Bobbi Brown Gel Liner- Expresson Ink or Black Ink

  • MAX factor 2000 calorie/ MUFE Smoky Lash Mascara

  • MAC E/S Sketch, Star Violet & Satin Taupe

  • Kiehl's Lipgloss "Pink Rider"

  • Stila Palette- Oasis, Golightly & Kitten and a pink blush

  • Benefit Dandelion, Shu Uemura Blush "Rhythm" & SkinFood Blush 20

Skincare Routine........


I use Philosophy Purity made simple cleanser- it's upside down cos I am nearly out! Boohoo!

I don't moisturise, I just put on my primer before I put on my makeup. Is that bad? I just think it makes my skin oily with moisturiser and a primer. So I skip it!


Shu Uemura Oil Cleanser- It takes off ALL my makeup in one go. I usually do this before I hop into the shower.

SKII Facial Essence- I pat this on my face after I dry my face.

Rodial Glam Balm- Again, no moisturiser. This is really oily already so I don't need it! It's kind of like the Egyptian Magic Cream but this one doesn't break me out and I wake up to soft skin in the morning:) It's a wrinkle fighter for lips, hands...anywhere!

Eye Cream- Laura Mercier Flawless Face Eye Serum...I got sucked in to buying this! Not sure what it does but at least it's better than nothing. It has a pearlescent sheen to it which is meant to counteract the dark circles. Not sure why this is helpful at night? No one is gonna look at me sleep! I don't put eyecream on during the day. :/

Extra Help- If I need a skin rescue or some extra pampering I use:

Dermalogica Skin Renewal Booster- This is great! It makes your skin smoother and less dry. I love it!

Face Shop Raspberry Roots Sleeping Mask- Very light mask that you can go to bed with and no need to rinse till morning! Another great product but can only use twice a week.

White Mud Nose Pack- This is meant to be a nose peel but I use it for my pimples! ahaha It seems to work because I cover it up and I don't feel the temptation to pick at it.

I tag these ladies:

ooo at least you have a table?!!? lol So organized! I am a freak about organizing it like that too, but I don't have a nice table lol It's just on a rack in the bathroom, terrible place to put makeup I know but I can't put it anywhere else. And the undercover pot looks interesting, I might give that a try next!
