I received a beauty tag from Mylittlebeautystash and I am very thankful for it. It was honestly my first and I am very sorry it took me such a long time to do a post. So here goes my musings...
Blusher or Bronzer
I say BLUSHERS are one of my staples coz they sincerely make you instantly blooming! I'll just share one experience why I try to stay away from bronzers. I tried one from my officemate wayback 2009 and as soon as our utility worker saw my face; he blurted out, "Ma'am have you forgotten your face sunblock while seriously sunbathing?" lol My face was all tanned while my neck and body was so pale.

Lip gloss or Lip stick
I say lip sticks are one of my can't-live-without cosmetics. I have a flawed man-toned big lips lol so I need all the concealing and coloring. I usually hoard on nude and peachy toned ones. I kinda feel younger with these shades on!!!
Lip balm or Lip butter
I say Lip Balm!!! They are just the bomb!!! lol My pout is seriously parched most of the time. Thanks to these handy babies for keeping my lips chap-free and moist. I also included my favorite non-drying lip tints =).

Matte or Sparkle Eye shadow
Although I am not much of an eye shadow girl, I am favoring the sparkle ones over matte variants. Pretty shimmers immediately brighten the windows of our souls hehehe.

Gel, Liquid, Cream, or Pencil Liner
Pitch black cream liners!!! They dramatically and effortlessly create huge animated eyes. They are easier to work with, they don't smudge and they are resilient to water and oil.

Foundation or Concealer
I am a self-confessed bb cream addict and I have stashed a reasonable number from a lot of Korean brands which was evidently documented in this blog. I have here a few left and I bet for more hoarding in the future lol. I also use concealers to cover my acne traces and under eye dark circles.
Pressed or Loose Powder
Both!!! I love setting my bb cream with loose powders. For lazy days, pressed powders are just perfect!

Neutral or Statement Eyes
I say neutral eyes!!! My eyes are innately huge that is why I keep them soft and subtle. Hehehe you'll seldom see me wearin' eye make up though. =) I'm all good with mascaras and eyeliners (sometimes).

Waterproof or Non-waterproof
For eyebrows, eyelashes and lip make ups, I prefer waterproof formula. I have thin eyebrows, short eye lashes and dark pigmented lips hehehe so I like to wear something that stays there even when I go swimming lol.
Brushes, Sponges or Fingers
I habitually use my fingers because I don't own that much brushes. I only have my long time travel set Ecotools and I have acquired a few from Elf lately plus I am so lazy to wash them everyday. Ooopps OC girl alert =).
Powder, Cream or Liquid Highlighters
I am a genuine fan of highlighters, may it be in a powder, cream or liquid formula. I just love the radiance they provide!!! Every time I apply one, I am reminded that I am alive lol.

Can't live without product
I am like an incomplete painting without my waterproof brow tints, browcaras, brow powders, etc lol. Otoke... I can't just go out of the house without them lol!!!
