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? :)

Week of Makeup Favourites 2014: My Top 10 Foundations

Week of Makeup Favourites 2014

Hello hello and welcome to Day 2 of Makeup Favourites Week! I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my top 10 primers yesterday as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.

Today, I’d like to share one of my favourite topics in makeup. No, it’s not blush just yet (that’s coming soon!). It’s foundations. I won’t be talking about BB creams this time, just foundations. I’ve been wearing foundations a lot more than BB creams for the past 10 months so it’s only fitting that I tell you what my top 10 foundations are. Some are classic favourites and some are recent discoveries.

You’ll also find that this is the only makeup favourites topic that I actually have reviews for every foundation mentioned. I enjoy trying out new foundations and reviewing them so you can bet your bottom dollar that there’ll be a lot more foundation reviews to come in the near future.

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