It’s been a long time since I last blogged about what’s new in my beauty box so here it is! These are my makeup must-haves before but now by the goodness of the good Lord, I have them. But the must-haves list, just like any other girl, has been growing longer and longer each day, . Just when you thought you’ve already found that perfect primer or powder or blush or lip color, another one comes along. Haaaaaaaaaay. It’s so hard being girl, eh? Haha!
Let’s start off with the eye shadow shall we? I AM IN LOVE with this eye shadow palette from Urban Decay! I’ve already raved about this to practically ALL my girl friends. It’s very easy to use because the essential or best colors are included in one kit. WINNER!
I’ve always aimed for eye makeup, blushes and (SYEMPRE) lipsticks but never for foundation!
Hmmmm can I put every shade of foundations on my face? Of course not! Those are for the benefit of my beloved customers as well. But let’s name these foundations first.
Okay, so we have BOBBI BROWN (the makeup brand I will forever love) in a darker shade cos I planned to have that sun-kissed skin before but failed; MAKE UP FOREVER Mat Velvet + for that matte looking and oil free face; 2 MAKE UP FOREVER High Definition Foundation in different shades (I will describe them seperately later :) )
Then we have MAC Sculpt on a tube, MAC Studio Fix funda on a bottle and MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation.
I really love MAC Foundations I get oily easily whenever I have makeup on so I decided it’s about time for me I have my own set. They’re now my go-to foundation for special occations or events. 👌
As promised, here is my review for this MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Foundation :)
So we bought Makeup Forever’s HD foundation in shade 118. I also love love love this foundation. It gives you a flawless, smooth, natural look and it moisturizes your skin at the same time. It so flawless and light-weight it feels like you have nothing on! It doesn’t break out your skin either. Very long lasting, lasts me all day long when I used it! It is kinda pricey. But I would totally recommend this product! Worth every penny and definitely would buy it again if mag damo kwarta ko lol :)
Even so I have told you before that I don’t like using foundations for my day to day makeup, I still keep this “HELLO FLAWLESS” from Benefit Powder Foundation in my bag for that flawless looking (kuno) face and for emergency touch-ups ^.^
Let’s move on to blushes! Another notable makeup for our cheeks is the pink candy like blush from MAC, Haven’t used it yet but I’m pretty sure this blush would transform your dull cheeks to a brighter and girly one ☼
You know how cute Japanese girls apply their blush right on the apples of their cheeks? They use this doll-like pink color to achieve the look right? If you want to get that same look, this is the blush for you. It’s highly pigmented with a cherry pink color that’s just too sweet for words! Too bad these uber cute blush powders aren’t mine. It’s my sister’s cos she always opted to look like a barbie doll 😊 I just can’t afford to not post these cuttie pies ☺
For the last sets are: LIPPIES! 💋 💋 💋
Lipsticks are undeniably my favorite when it comes to makeup! It’s amazing how it can transform your subtle look a glamorous look — and it’s all because of lipstick.
My favorite shades are the really RED ones or the bubbly soft PINK colors and these MAC Lipsticks are the perfect example of them! The left one’s MAC RUSSIAN RED, my current favorite red lipstick, it gives our lips that matte red hot glamorous look which is very good in late night parties; and the other one’s MAC VIVA GLAM by NICKI MINAJ limited edition pink lipstick; it gives our lips a satin soft look that is not very girly at the same time.
And finally, for the girly touch, choose the YSL Lipstick and Lip Gloss in pretty light PINK! It can be used everyday and look fabulous wearing it!
So there you have it! Another set of beauty must-haves. I hope this one will do for now. :)
Couples Counseling Tips – Ways to Keep Relationship Conflicts Away
It’s normal to argue with each other on different things and there is nothing wrong with disagreeing on certain situations, but when these arguments and disagreements remain unresolved they start to create problems. With the help of a few tips, you and your partner can keep all the conflicts away from your relationship:
1. Have time for yourself. It’s better to sit down for a while on your own and block your negative thoughts. Ask your partner to leave you for a while so that you can gather your thoughts and communicate in a more positive way.
2. Convert your negative thoughts into positive ones. Instead of finding ways to criticize each other or looking for negative things, you should focus on all the positive bits. Develop the ability to overcome your negative feelings and turn them the opposite way.
3. Respect each other’s opinions. No matter how badly you disagree with your partner never jump to any conclusion. Instead, do let them express their feelings and respect their suggestions.
4. Try to understand your partner. When you are dealing with a specific issue, it’s easy to point fingers at each other but instead if you try to listen to what the other person has to say you can understand each other more deeply.
For a healthier relationship :)
