I laid them out and behold:
I thought I had loads more, but I threw some out so I’m left with only these. Not much but this is my personal collection. I don’t share this with anyone, nor am I a makeup artist of any sort (so maybe I did a friend or two).
I collect more brushes than anything else because I believe that the tools are more important than the makeup itself. Plus they last a lifetime. Plus brushes don’t make your face break out or turn red.
Second most important in my book is foundation. Foundation covers most of your face and depends on how you apply it, they can appear cakey; or, they simply blend in like second skin. On normal days, I skip most of the makeup except foundation (after moisturizer).
For me, it’s important for the foundation to have at least SPF 15 because my face burns easily and I hate to endure people asking ‘why you so red’. After a week, the face turns ashy and I have to answer to questions like ‘why you so tan, you went holiday is it??’.
I keep 5 foundations because I tend to change color alot so yeah.
Also I looove liquid and gel blushes!! People can’ t tell that you’re wearing one, they think it’s natural!
Owh and I just bought a new brush set by Real Techniques via The Fashionette. By the way, they’re SUPER affordable, you’ll be surprised. I’ll review them once I’ve got my hands on them.
After much blabbing about makeup, naturally I’ll have to show you my go-to look.
It looks like this:
Believe me, this look can go far. I’ve used this to go to kenduris, gatherings. I even used the same stuff for my wedding! Except for more foundation, eyeliner and mascara for added drama.
So that’s it for my what’s in the makeup bag post. Usually I carry a small bag containing only essentials. Talk about that next time!
Till then, xoxo!

If you see birds chirping and post is not updated means that I’ve gotten quite occupied with work. I’d like to share lots of things but just don’t have the time or rather the ‘reflective-sit quietly by the window-blog for hours’ mood. Plus my laptop is really getting on my nerves, shutting down at random times what not. It’s almost 4 years old and begging to be put out of misery.
Ever since I got out of uni, I never spoke of ‘work’ on the blog and I don’t discuss it much. Simply because it’s quite complicated and I’ve always thought of myself as not working, yet, but rather still looking for the right direction. But of course, I was employed and was really good at it if I may say so myself. Most people have a vague idea of what I do. Some think I sell houses, some think I travel lots for work, some think I run a restaurant.
Suffice to say that I now work from home. Kinda.
And since my husband will be away for 2 months (sobs!), it’s time to get the apartment sorted out.
Can you just look at some of these home offices? Drool.
Love the monthly wall calendar and notice boards. And the color!
Love the concept, but must tone down the flowers or the husband will get panicky and scared.
I’ve got tons of stuff. More like the last picture above. So realistically speaking, I’m trying to get things as organized as it can be without actually scrimping on style.
I’ll be working on the apartment until end of December, so hopefully it looks more like a home by then, rather than a nest or a play jungle for Chanel.
On an end note, these DIY stationery holders are so cute. I’m ganna do this for mine, and the makeup brushes!
Till next time.
