I have been on a hunt for a new facial cleanser and found Aveeno. I used a few products and did not find any distinctive result from a long time of using it. Sure, it cleanses your face, I hoped. However, with this product, I notice a difference right after patting my skin dry; it does not make my skin feel tight like an everything-stripped-off kind of tight, and the brightening effect does actually work because my pimple scars appear less dark in just two weeks of using.
Sunscreen. We all know how important sunscreens are and somehow we just take it for granted. However, it is essential in your skin care routine to count the sunscreen in, every day. I too don’t bother to use sunscreen before, but now I do. I am using Cetaphil; it tends to feel a bit sticky on the skin at first right after applying it, but it dries faster and absorbs into the skin quickly, so the stickiness therein will not be long.
I fell in love with the Diorskin Star Concealer by Dior. In fact, I like it more now than the NARS Creamy Concealer. It blends well, matches my skin tone and acts as an undereye highlight as well; it is perfect. I do not use it every day though because it is a bit pricey for a 6ml tiny little tube or bottle.
This fragrance is currently my go to scent. The girl working at Sephora recommended it, and so I gave it a try. Received a couple of compliments on it too (insert tongue-out emoji). I am bad at describing scent or anything really, but I will try, it smells like fresh flowers without making it overwhelmingly flowery or sweet; it is light and clean. Yes, there you go. Hehe.
I am fully committed to bronzing now. Totally can make a huge difference on your whole face’s complexion or overall appearance. The product and the packaging itself compliment with each other resulting into this adorable little bundle. Thanks to a good friend of mine for having such a great sense of Christmas present idea.
Still on the era of my ‘things that shimmers’. Took a break from using my Elizabeth Arden Liquid Highlighter and switch to Make Up Forever Pro Light Fusion in No. 1 which is golden pink, ideal for light to medium skin tones. I am recently obsessing over highlighting my nose bridge, cupid’s bow, brow bone, and chin. I use the Sephora Pro Fan Eventail 65 with it, which I do not really like but it does the job, so I still use it. You can never go wrong with highlight, and it seems like if you overdo it the better. But I don’t, overdo it. Hopefully.
I got my eyelashes permed, so I don’t have to deal with curling my lashes every single day. The thing is if my eyelashes are curled they tend to smudge the mascara big time. So finding a mascara that can minimise that is a bit tricky. I stumbled upon soap and glory products and found this Thick and Fast mascara, and it isn’t mentioned on the packaging if it is actually a waterproof one, but I like it a lot. It doesn’t smudge and can be removed easily every time I wash my face which is a good thing; because there’s nothing more annoying than removing waterproof mascara and trying hard not to pull all of your eyelashes off.
I recently cut my hair short, and so it means my styling options are limited now. I have been wearing my hair curled, and with the use of this product, it stays curled for at least 6 hours tops since this is a soft touch hold hair spray only and because I don’t like the feel of crisp and stickiness the strong hold hairsprays are giving. I use a 16mm curling wand, spritz some hair spray and dry shampoo if it is the second day, then call it a day.
I didn’t realise how much I missed wearing ear hoops until recently. They are in now, and I think they look cute with every outfit possible, and so I thought I would try them on again. I used to wear them since high school, I reckon. This one is from H&M, by the way.
I finished reading this book a while back, but it has remained fresh in my memory especially the images it has created. I tend to go back and flip the pages and I might or might not have read it a couple of times more. This book talks about issues surviving high school (regular millennial thing), bullying, love, struggles, life and death. The book is so well-written and expresses a particular message that will make you realise; you will never know what anyone could be thinking and feeling. It will leave you wanting to know more and more about what will happen next once you start flipping the first few pages. This is definitely my absolute favourite as of now; otherwise, this has not made it to my fave list. Highly recommend reading it and let me know if you cried too.
Broadchurch is my current favourite TV Series. It is about crime, drama, and mystery. It has 3 seasons so far with 8 episodes per season. It makes you think and wonder what has happened as well, and the twists are just amazing and exciting. I can not wait for the season 4 to come out. Watch it, and I assure you, you will love it. Unless you are not into crime investigations, journalism and law related kind of stuff, this might bore you. I, on the other hand, enjoy it.
These are my current favourites. I hope you discover something you might end up liking too. Thank you for stopping by and take care of yourself!
