Lazy Winter


Winter blues are getting me down and very very lazy.......I miss the hot summer days! My appetite also is disappearing- nothing is appealing anymore which makes me even more sad :(

At least I can use makeup to make me look a bit more cheerful! Just want to share what I have been using these days when I feel extremely lazy. Especially in the mornings when I stay in my warm cozy bed an extra 10 minutes which of course cuts into my "getting ready" time. 

Firstly, I apply my Hourglass Veil mineral primer- this is the best primer I have used so far. If you like Smashbox photo finish primer (they both give a similar velvetly finish) then you would really love this product. 

I have gone back to using my BB creams (I finished with my beloved Laura Mercier Liquid foundation) and I personally think they blend easier than any foundation and it's so foolproof - kinda like a tinted moisturiser.  I've been using Skinfood Gingko Green BB Cream- which is my colour and blends really well into my skin. I even got a stranger complimenting on my porcelain complexion- which I never ever receive using other foundations! However, BB creams are notoriously hard to skin colour match especially for tanned to darker skins- not fair I know! Also they do tend to be oilier so avoid this in summer or if you are prone to a shiny skin. 

I also redisccovered my old favourite concealer- Lancome's Effacernes Longue Tenue (how do you pronounce this?!?) Anyway it just works well with the BB Cream and it lasts all day.

And to add a bit of cheeriness into my sallow complexion I've been using Benefit's Posie Tint which is a very pretty pink stain. Benetint is more rosy so this is a bit more girly. It gives a very light finish without the heaviness of powder or cream (ideal for hot summers!) I also use this on my lips- looks very natural and lasts longer than lipgloss:)


Last but not least, this Sephora colourful duo eyeshadow No. 9 is a very flattering colour for dark or brown eyes- I use the lilac on my lids and the darker dirty plum to line the upper lash line and the lower lash line. It looks so much better than plain old brown! Try it:)

Anyone has any lazy winter tips please share!

I forget that it's winter in your part of the world! I hope you feel better soon, and remember that spring is right around the corner! I'm looking forward to fall myself... it's too hot where I'm at!
