If you are a girl, you must love Sephora.
Home to all the best beauty brands around the world, I always end up browsing for more than 15 minutes although I tell myself 5 minutes is the max I'd spend in there...
And I'm sure I'm not the only one experiencing the above, and leaving with both hands full of swatches and a new purchase ^.^
The only bad thing about Sephora is it closes when the mall says it has to, and you can't shop past a certain time, right?
Well, Sephora is now online and you can shop 24/7!
Sephora Singapore sent me a big box of goodies to try out, and here are my picks!
And an easy, day look I've created using the products that I'm gonna review individually, below :
But before that, here are my top 3 tips for creating a flawless look...
1. Invest in good brushes : I always thought using my fingers to apply my makeup was enough, or using the applicators that come with the products that I used, but ever since I started using brushes.. I don't think I'll ever go back to using my fingers to apply my sunscreen, or eyeshadow, ever again.
Good brushes ensure your makeup is beautifully blended, and this little set from Sephora is more than enough. I especially love the eyeshadow blender blush, it's pretty darn amazing.
2. Good skin as the most important base of all : I've been using DRx for the longest time, and it works so well for me. I have no complaints. However, I'm always open to adding on good skincare to my regime, and I've only heard good things about ALPHAH H, an Australian skincare brand.
It truly does live up to its name, and although I like everything, I gotta give LIQUID GOLD and INSTANT FACIAL a special shout out. Both products gave me brighter skin, and tingled enough to let me know it worked without causing my sensitive skin to feel irritated. Now I know why they have cult beauty products!
3. Pretty optional, in case you're in a huge rush : But if you have the time, my practice is to light a scented candle, lay everything out, and devote at least 30 minutes to applying my makeup. It somehow goes on more beautifully when you slowly build on your makeup instead of rushing to apply it.
This Fig and Cedarwood is from ALPHAH H as well.
Now that you're all set, it's time to get on with the makeup!
MARC JACOBS BEAUTY : I used all three products below for this nude look. Their products are packaged beautifully (which is so important for me lol) and I love that they sent me these in neutral shades that I can wear everyday!
Sheer Lip Gel in 'Role Play'
The Magic Marc'er precision eyeliner is what it is, precise, and in a lovely shade of 'Cocoa Lacquer'
Eyeshadow Palette in 'The Lover'
NUDESTIX : Fast becoming one of my top favourite makeup brands, their products are all in 'sticks' and I've tried these on top of their lipliners that are highly raved. I love them all!
Magnetic Eye Colors in 'GILT' and 'IMMORTAL'
MIRENESSE : I'll be honest and say I've never heard of this brand till now, but now I've tried it, I think I'll always have one of their lip liners ready. I love the texture, how easy it glides on.. and the all three shades. Also, I heard their mascara (pictured behind) is AMAZING, and has won beauty awards everywhere! Unfortunately, I have lash extensions on, so I haven't got to try them yet.
