Week of Makeup Favourites 2014: My Top 10 Mascaras and Eyebrow Pens

Week of Makeup Favourites 2014: My Top 10 Mascaras and Eyebrow Pens

Happy weekend, folks, and welcome to another episode of Makeup Favourites Week! I hope you’ve enjoyed this mini series so far. If not, well, there are just a couple more to go so bear with me, okay? But if you did enjoy this mini series, there are 2 more coming so, yay! :P

Today, I’d like to share my top 10 mascaras and eyebrow pens/pencils/things with you. I’ve lumped mascaras and eyebrow thingies together in one post because I don’t have many of each category to make up 10 products. I’m the kind who sticks to just a few products when it comes to mascaras and eyebrow things and when I find the ones that work for me, I don’t usually continue searching for better ones (blushes and foundations on the other hand? Whole different story). The ones in this list work very well for me so if possible, I’m happy to just hang on to them. For now, at least.

Let’s get started, shall we? Here they are in no particular order.

Week of Makeup Favourites 2014: My Top 10 Eyeliners

Week of Makeup Favourites 2014: My Top 10 Eyeliners

TGIF folks! Hope you’ve had a good week thus far. Me, I’m just looking forward to the weekend as always!

As it’s Friday, we’re on to day 5 of Makeup Favourites Week and today, it’s all about eyeliners.

I remember a few years ago, in one of my new year’s resolutions, I mentioned that that was the year I was going to master the liquid eyeliner once and for all. I was really envious of those who could draw on liquid eyeliners so effortlessly and with heaps of practice, I finally did it! It’s not perfect or anything but at least, I can say yes, I know how to use it now. :P

For me, it’s imperative that the eyeliners do not smudge. I can’t stand eyeliners that smudge to my lower lids. As I wear glasses most of the time, the shadow from the glasses and smudged eyeliner onto the lower lids at the end of the day gives me a very tired look. The eyeliners mentioned here do not smudge nor fade after many hours. This is with eyeshadow primer on because I never wear eye makeup without primer (my oily eyelids wouldn’t cooperate with eye makeup if I don’t apply primer first. Sigh.).

Here they are in no particular order.

Week of Makeup Favourites 2014: My Top 10 Eyeshadows

Week of Makeup Favourites 2014: My Top 10 Eyeshadows

It’s day 4 on Makeup Favourites Week and today, we’re talking all about eyeshadows!

Here’s the thing: even though I have enough eyeshadows to last me many, many years, I’m actually very picky when it comes to actually applying it on my eyelids. Eh, what sort of nonsense is Tine talking about, I hear you ask? You see, a lot of the eyeshadows I had purchased over the years were done on a whim and usually when I’m suckered in by packaging. I have extremely oily eyelids and even with the best eyeshadow primer on, a lot of eyeshadows don’t last the day without creasing, smudging and fading. Unfortunately, although a lot of the eyeshadows I picked up over the years were very beautiful on the palette, even lovelier when swatched but when they were applied on my eyelids and used for an entire day, they didn’t cut the mustard at all.

In my list of top 10 eyeshadows are the ones that made the cut. Mind you, these are judged with eyeshadow primer on as I never wear eyeshadow without primers. These eyeshadows stay on my eyelids without any problems and are the ones I wear repeatedly. In fact, I’d happily give up the rest of my eyeshadows as long as I have these. Ahem, any takers? ;)

Let’s get started! Here they are at random order.

Week of Makeup Favourites 2014: My Top 10 Powders

Week of Makeup Favourites 2014

Happy hump day, my lovely chickadees!

Just a heads up: there’ll be no Bloggie Wednesday post today as we’re still on the Makeup Favourites Week. Yesterday, I talked about one of my favourite makeup products and that’s foundation. Today, I’d like to share with you my top 10 powders for setting foundation.

I very rarely step out of the house with just foundation on and no powder. As I have combination skin and a particularly oily T-zone, it’s imperative that I at least powder my T-zone area so that it doesn’t look like a shiny knob after just an hour or two. Some of these are classic favourites and some are recent discoveries.

Shall we get powdering? :)
