Basic Touch-Up Essentials




Basic Touch-Up Essentials


While creating flawless and beautiful make-up is one thing, maintaining it to be that way all day and night is another issue to think about. For a person with combination of oily and dry skin, I deal with 2 problems; face will turn shiny after few hours or makeup will crease due to dryness. So what’s a girl to do to solve this massive problem? Aha! Yes, I always bring my “touch-up makeup” with me inside my purse. By the way how adorable is this red purse?

What Makeup to Bring


You do not have to bring your entire makeup case to keep your face looking fresh all day and night. Adding more makeup will make your face seem “caky.” I use the Invisimatte Blotting Powder Universal by Fenty Beauty. This has been my go-to product to keep my t-zone shine free. It’s also good for fixing the crease on my skin. You can use the applicator it comes with, however, I prefer using my Japonesque Fluff Concealer Brush. This is one of my brushes that I can’t live without. It’s the perfect size for my under-eye area and small enough to fit my purse.


Next on my list is the RMS cream foundation (shade 33) I have blogged about this foundation since day one. I can’t stress enough how great this product is; It’s organic, insanely small packaging and it has great coverage. Sometimes touching your face or any incident which wipes off your makeup can happen. Having a small foundation on hand will be very helpful.


Lastly, do not forget to bring lipstick or lip-gloss. I have lipsticks in my car and in all my purses because the key to looking fresh is having your lip-color “on-point” at ALL times.

My Favorite Affordable Makeup Palettes


       Make-up can break the bank very easily, if you have the taste for high-end makeup like myself. It cost $35 for one Charlotte Tilbury lipstick, unlike drug store brand that cost $8 or less.

       Why are high-end brands more ridiculously expensive? Is it because the formula of their products has better quality and long-lasting? Buying high-end makeup means that you are paying for the famous brand name. They are luxurious, better packaging and makes you feel better owning something fancy. Am I right? I will forever love high-end products, but lately I discovered some insanely inexpensive makeup palettes that work as good or even better than the famous make up brands.

2 pieces Miskos 12 Color Naked Matte/Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette

miskos makeup picture ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†¬† This Miskos eyeshadow palette is incredible. This is not a drug store brand, but you can purchase this online at a very affordable price. It is very pigmented, buttery and long-lasting. This palette is a good dupe of the Urban Decay Naked palette. You can create soft, day-time or night-time look with this palette. The packaging is made out of card board, very light weight and definitely nothing fancy. However, the reason this palette is very inexpensive is because the company, who made this didn’t spend much money on packaging. I do not mind it at all because I only care about the quality of the product.

BH Cosmetics Blush Palette

¬† ¬† This blush palette is a must have. It has bronzer, different colors of blush and it is very inexpensive. When I grab a blush palette, seeing there are different option for me makes me feel more creative. You can mix match these colors creating a complete different hue for the look you’re trying to achieve.

Bad Habit Paradise Highlight Palette

This Bad Habit Beauty Highlight is miraculously good. When you wear this, it is so blinding. I was amaze how inexpensive this is. The brand Bad Habit Beauty is very new, but they are already catching the attention of the beauty community. Make sure to use good brushes when applying this highlight on your pretty face. Too much highlight can be a disaster and can’t be undone.

l’Oreal La Palette Lipstick

Lastly, is the l’oreal La Palette Lipstick which is a really good purchase. This is a drug store brand. The formula of this palette is very creamy, glossy and highly pigmented. The lip brush that comes with it works great too. Again, nothing is better than owning palettes that has different colors inside. This gives you wiggle room for doing different type of looks.

Ultimately, drug store brands or inexpensive online brands are worth trying. When you find products that are amazing and affordable, it’s like hitting the jackpot! Below is a makeup video tutorial of all the products mentioned above.

Birthday Outfit and Makeup

My birthday already? How time flies like crazy. Aging is not very exciting, but tonight I will dress up with a screaming “forever young” look. Paul took me to a very romantic restaurant called Villa Blanca at Beverly Hills. I have never owned a jumpsuit, but this black jumpsuit is a must have. It’s low cut — revealing the right amount of cleavage while still looking very elegant. Adding the metallic purse gives this outfit an edge. Match it with silver bangles¬†to add sparkle to your look.

Let’s talk about my makeup. I am obsessed with the brand Natasha Denona! It gives you that high-end fashion look. The formula of this eyeshadow is so pigmented, creamy and long lasting. Nude lip gloss is a must, since I am wearing smoky eyeshadow. We may age¬† every day, but we can keep it young by adding some fun and invigorating colors to make our look edgy and fresh.
