♡ Current beauty/makeup favorites

Lately my skin has been feeling so dry, flaky, oily, acne-prone, it's been crazy, so I thought I would try this Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion to solve my dry skin issue and it did the trick for me. I would apply this after cleansing my face. What I don't like about it is the scent and the texture, I wished it felt thicker. After moisturising my face, I apply this Murad Skin Perfecting Primer Acne And Shine Control. I've used this before and stopped because it made my face look drier but the thing this did a great job as a primer and plus I love that it contains salicylic acid to fight my acne. Another comeback is the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++  - No.23, I always love the texture of this bb cream, and it does not break me out though it may be a little lighter than my skin but nothing a bronzer can't solve. I've been loving this as my overall foundation and I would use Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation - Nude as a concealer only on my blemishes. And I can't go out without brows, now having dark hair, this Sigma Beauty Brow Powder Duo - Dark has been awesome! Finally for the eyes, I love bronze colors and this Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Khol Kajal Eye Liner - Bronze is so easy and quick to apply.

Since I've got back to using Missha BB cream, I felt the need to use a bronzer everyday and I've been liking this one from Pixi Early Bird Kit (middle). The thing is I don't own any other bronzer and this palette is probably 3 years old now or more, I don't know, okay maybe two years but whatever, it works for me. 

This Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains - Romantic has been with me for a long time, and oddly, I never talked about it on my blog. I think for me this is the best lip stain thingy. I love the staying/stain-ing power, the color, the texture, and the fresh minty smell. And FYI, this is better than these Rimmel ones.

Okay, we shall not forget the important makeup tools one should own, right? I love applying bb cream with the Sigma Beauty F80 Flat Kabuki, it's just applies so much faster and gives me better coverage and beautiful finish. Since I don't own any concealer brush, this Sigma Beauty E30 Pencil has been pretty useful, I would dab concealer on my blemishes with this and later use my ring finger in dabbing motion to blend it in. Do you recognise this third brush, it's from the original Naked palette or the 2? I don't know, but this is the only one I find useful, the two ended one is just horrible. I find applying the brow powder with the brush so quick and easy, I just need color in my brows, I don't need perfect shape though I would like that but I'm no brow expert sadly. Once I've applied the brow powder, I like going back in with a spoolie to make it more natural and this Sigma Beauty E80 Brow and Lash is great. For bronzer, I use the Sigma Beauty F40 Large Angled Contour, secretly I would like to own the Nars Kabuki Ita Brush but it's expensive and I can't find it online where the website would ship to here and yeah, I don't need it, I would just like to own it.
