Winter: Keeping It Simple

Lately, after being encouraged by the boyfriend and also lack of motivation... I finally joined the gym. I've been going everyday except Thursday this week because I was just lazy and I had my monthlies... That being said, I haven't been bothered with much make up because obviously it's the gym!

I've kept my make up simple when I go to the gym and also out and this is mainly what I wear out for the past week or so considering it's winter. If i'm going to the gym I will only apply my MAC Studio Moisture Tint for that little bit of coverage - considering it's a tinted moisturiser it won't do damage in terms of clogging pores and all. If I'm going to work or just out and not to the gym AT ALL, I will apply my MAC Studio Fix or my Lancome Photogenic Lumessence Foundation. I do try to do without it but I feel insecure with just a bare face considering my face is near to flawless with blemishes and redness (I'm not going to be anymore modest here) but saying that...

I've been using Clinique's Anti-Blemish Solutions (Clarifying Lotion & Moisturiser) after my 'fail' attempt to clear my blemishes with the 3 Step Kit which I reviewed and mentioned in a previous post. Despite how they're miniature and that they are sample sizes they have done much needed justice for me to see improvement. I am so so happy that this Anti-Blemish system actually works! I'm waiting for my paycheck and enough balance in the bank account to actually purchase the kit which is $117. I'm also hoping there a gift with purchase going on with Clinique (fingers crossed it's real soon!)

My current go-to mascara right now is Maybelline's Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara. I love it and I shall declare it my current HG mascara. It actually gives me existent lashes and also provides volume and length. I do switch around with this mascara and my Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara as well as my Australis Killer Curves one which I love for a clean simple look.  

As for brows, I've been digging this Essence Eyebrow Designer Pencil in 02 Brown which I picked up at Melbourne for $2.95 at Target. So far awesome eyebrow pencil to finish off the look. 

My NARS Highlighter in Albatross is something I simply adore. Most days it's just highlighter for me. I've been lazy with bronzer for contouring and also blusher so it's highlighter all the way for me. 

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze is a favourite, I've been using it everytime I go out ever since I purchased it from Melbourne. So much love for this product and perfect for any occasion - work or going out! (There will be a guest post on Makeup & Macaroons on my review on this real soon! So keep a lookout!)

The Etude House Baby Doll Puff just to blend out the tinted moisturiser/foundation. Love it! 

My Garnier Roll On Depuffer i'm on my 3rd one of this and I can't live without it. I love this to death and I always have one handy due to the fact that I always get puffy eyes. 

Face of Australia's Sheer Gloss Crayon in Sundae sometimes when I'm in a rush I just apply this chubby crayon on my lips for an on the go neutral lip. Especially for the gym, it acts like a lip balm and colour for me. 

There were some more essentials like my everyday eyeliner and other foundations, but I kept it simplified and also mainly the products I've been reaching out to the most. 

What are your winter essentials? 

Love, J

  5. hi!
    have you tried the concealing version of that garnier eye roll on thing?
    the etude house puff looks pretty much the same as the beauty blender to me :D

  6. I've been hearing so many good things about Essence products and I am always stopping by their section at Target but haven't purchased anything yet. Their makeup is so affordable and have been interested in their eyeliners. The eyebrow pencil seems like a bargain at $2.95!
