Daily Regimens

the question 'what makeup and/or skincare do you use?' has popped out numerous times ever since I blogged. so here we go. As you read this post, you'll notice that I'm the mix and match girl whether it comes to makeup or skincare. I don't believe that in order to get maximum results, you have to use products from the same range. I've tried tons of skincare options and so far these mismatched brands I'm using works the best. please note that this is not a sponsored post. this is just a matter of sharing..

here's what I use for my daily skincare : I first wash my face with Cetaphil (this cleanser does wonders FYI). I cleanse and takeoff my makeup with this. Next, I apply SKII facial treatment lotion with a cotton pad and finish with either SKII UV Protection for day or Neutrogena Visibly Clear oil-free moisturizer for night. When I'm going out of the house, I put on Maybelline's BB Cream (in Fresh). It evens out skintone and for those who don't like sunscreen, this also packs a nice SPF 26.

Every 3-4 days, I scrub my face with St. Ives's Apricot Scrub and I also use SKII's facial treatment essence in place of my moisturizer. The essence wondrously brightens my skin. When the day is done, I use Chanel's eye makeup remover to get rid of my eyeliner.

When in comes to makeup, I like to keep it natural. My makeup procedure takes about 3mins (5mins if I feel like wearing mascara) every morning. I start by concealing my under eye circles with Bobbi Brown's concealer kit. I have it in 2 shades (beige and warm ivory) so I can mix it accordingly. I use Sephora's Concealer brush to even out the product around my eyes, then tap to blend them with my fingers. Invest in a good concealer brush as it makes your concealer go on 10x nicer and smoother on your face. After it the concealer has blended, I set it with ID Bare Minerals mineral veil. This helps the concealer to stay in place for the whole day.

Next, I line the top rim of my eyes with Maybelline's Unstoppable eyeliner (in brownie). I usually use Clinique's quickliner but I ran out the other day and this was the easiest to get. it's actually not bad at all (and it's only $6 or something?) I then smudge the eyeliner with the silver Dior brush. Last but definitely not the least, EYEBROWS ! I used to ignore my brows and they were unkempt. Now I regularly go for grooming sessions and I use Kate's eyebrow kit to make them nice and thick. If I feel like wearing mascara, I curl my lashes first then apply Chanel's Iminitable mascara in black.
6-2008
there are lots of other makeup variations I do.. but I guess it's impossible to show every single one on this post. this post is the makeup that I apply on most days, including weekends :) I believe that good and healthy skin is the best foundation for any look.. also remember to buy concealer/foundation in the CORRECT shade. have a good weekend !

I am obsessed with Cetaphil - just discovered it a couple of years ago, such a tragedy that I had to survive my bad-skin-high-school days without it! Ha :)

Loving your make up choice and I used to swear by bobbi brown concealer kit, but I found that it would start to get creases. I went back to MAC and they have this amazing long lasting concealer. If you get a chance try it!

The PvdH Journal said...

Its funny, I've used a lot of the products you use but have since rotated out of them. I'm not even sure WHY! i rotated out of them to be honest... I guess that is the thing about beauty products- sometimes there is no logic ;)

awesome post thanks for sharing- I agree with your mentality on good and healthy skin is the best foundation! I also don't use just 1 company of products for skin care I'm also a mix and match girl :D

Olivia said...

I don't believe you still use maybelline, I thought you always use branded cosmetics because the price has never lie, price always coming with the good result or quality.

@comment: im not quite sure why to be honest. i think its a mix of all 3. my skin is a bit dry, i have a tiny bit of acne and im allergic to dust. don't know if that helps. not quite sure if there's a product that covers the 3. im trying something with green tea in it right now. guess we'll see. xD
