Good Make-up brushes

IMG_1226

 

I’ve been using these Mikasa brushes since I ordered them. And really loving all of them that I picked! They have soft hair and nice shapes.

My all-time favorite makeup brush was an eyeshadow blending brush like MAC 224 and 286. And I’ve been using the MAC one quite a long time, but Mikasa “E330” has taken the top position. It happened quickly because the brush doesn’t scratch my eyelid at all. It is so soft and has a better density of hair that works on my eyelid smoothly and beautifully. I amazed with this well-done brush! Shown in the photo above, E330 is between MAC 286 (non-scratch and soft, less density) and MAC 224 (good shape, nice density, but scratchy)

I am seriously happy with my new great discovery of this Mikasa blending brush, that was dreaming for! And it is not expensive, Yay~ 🙂

E320” is as same as MAC 217. I can’t live without MAC 217, that’s a must-have brush for most makeup artists. Mikasa’s version is quite good, too. It has less density and is softer so it does a good job of blending.

This is also quickly becoming one of my faves. “E300” is a shorter and denser brush than “E330”.  Especially, using it for cream eyeshadows, love LOVE! And it is great to define the crease. It helps me do my eye makeup more quickly!

I LOVE this “F120” tapered brush. It works for highlighting on the cheekbones and powdering for undereye concealer. It does so well with the tapered shape. So so GOOD!

Bag accessories

The light blue bag strap is from & Other Stories.  I like to change bag straps and handles for fun. Fendi has many cool straps and price is beyond cool… 😀

There is always the alternative. Here are some of the affordable ones like my & Other Stories strap.

This season one trend is an oversized trench coat. Most time I do not quite follow trends, but often I have them in my wardrobe. Yay!!

This flower print dress, as well, is still in fashion. “Lucky me” is my feeling now. 🙂

Animal + animal chic

IMG_0999
Less color coordinated with taupe and silver.

 

Yes, animal faux fur jacket and animal print dress together. I am enjoying doing this.

The over-the-borderline of “too much” will happen sometimes by color, length, details, and volume. So when I add more animal details, I subtract some color.

No one wants to have too flashy or gaudy looks. Let’s hold the casual chic appearance by doing the minus method to stay in balance!

Nude on lips

IMG_1005

Nude color lipsticks have been my all-time favorite for a long time.
They are a classic and natural beauty basic, and I never get tired of them.
They are subtle and give a fresh look like a “no-makeup makeup” with the vibe from nude power.

Most days, I do full eye makeup. So it’s nice to finish with a nude color on my lips to balance out.

All nude lipsticks may seem similar, but to me, they are totally different. The color appears on lips differently with whatever skin tone and lip pigment we have.
It is so much fun to find out the best nude lipstick for my complexion.

Enjoy your journey to get yours!! 🙂

I am almost ready, and just the coat is the last choice for an outfit of the day making myself casually chic…

This is time-consuming ~ the leaving home ritual ~ it happens most days. My clock is tick-tocking, aww… It can be fun and enjoyable if I am not in a hurry. 😅

Decisions, decisions every day!

I care Eyecare

 

I love both makeup and skincare. It can’t be separated as you already might know. Especially under eye condition affects our makeup looks tremendously.

Here are some eye creams and concealers, and I cannot skip the process for my daily skincare and makeup routine.

Sock bootie

IMG_0842

These sock boots are very much in fashion and many of them are found in either high-end and high-street market; with round toe, pointy toe, kitten heel, chunky heel, low heel, high heel, leather and PVC and so on.

And they are so easy putting on and off and comfortable. I’ve been indulging my feet with these cutie booties!

I can’t wait until I wear these without tights or leggings in Spring. It might be flattering with a mini or midi skirt, too.

 

Both are from ZARA
