What’s inside my everyday make-up kit? 🌸

So right before rehearsals, I made sure to take time to write this blog post for you guys! ✨

For today’s post, I decided to do something a little fun! I’m going to be showing you guys what I keep inside my everyday make-up kit. I bring this kit with me EVERYWHERE I go, whether it’s on a roadtrip, to a party or even just a trip to the mall. I cannot live without this make-up bag because it has everything I need 🙂

If you’re wondering what YOU should have in your make-up kit, maybe this post will help you out! Cause tbh, you can never carry around too much make-up 😉

But before we get into what’s inside my make-up kit, here are some quick tips for you guys!

FIRST, make sure to clean your make-up bag regularly. You do not want to have a dirty make-up bag!!! If your make-up bag is the leather or plastic type, be sure to wipe the inside at least every week. You can even use the same soap you use to clean your make-up brushes! Just put a little bit of brush soap on a piece of cloth and use it to clean the inside. On the other hand, if you have a make-up bag made out of cloth, make sure to hand wash it regularly. If later on you realize, the dirt and make-up stains aren’t coming off anymore, it’s best to let go of that make-up bag because it’s time to get a new one!

SECOND, keep your brushes and sponges in a separate bag inside your make-up bag. I personally like putting my brushes and sponges in a separate bag because I feel that this prevents them from becoming dirty. The inside of make-up bags can become pretty dirty because of the foundation marks, excess powder or lipstick stains and so I want to protect my brushes and sponges as much as possible since these are the tools that directly touch my face.

THIRD, try your best to prioritize what to keep in your make-up kit. You wouldn’t want it to be super filled up. It might break or worse, it might damage the products inside the kit. As I said a while ago, yes, you can never carry around too much make-up BUT make sure at least that these are products you need on a daily basis or if ever products you think you’ll need to use later on during the day.

Okay, time to check out what’s inside my make-up kit! 🙂

1. Make-up bag with lots of personality!!!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I personally love it when my make-up bag has a lot of personality. I either choose a bag with a crazy colorful pattern or a bag that has a quote written on it which I can relate to. In this case, it’s the latter. “TOUCH MY TOOLS AND DIE.” What could be better than that??? I just relate to this so much because I am so protective of my make-up. Like, if you touch my make-up without asking, I could literally kill you (half joke) And so for those of you who feel the same way, I suggest you get a make-up bag like this one! Also, if for some reason you lose your make-up bag *knocks on wood*, you’ll have an easier time finding it because of it’s distinct look.

I got this from beabi!!! I love this store!!! They have great organizers for literally EVERYTHING. I love organizing my stuff and so this is one of my favorite stores ❤

2. Blush Brush & Powder Brush Duo

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

These are the only two brushes I keep in my make-up kit because these are the only two I need for my everyday make-up look: a blush brush & a powder brush. Whenever I feel a bit oily, I reapply some powder on my face. Also, I tend to get a bit pale towards the end of the day and so I got my blush brush so I can apply blush to keep me pink! Again, my everyday make-up look is simple and so these are the two trusty brushes I choose to keep with me in my make-up kit. Note: If you want to make sure they stay clean, be sure to put them in a separate kit inside your make-up bag (preferably a plastic kit so it’s easy to clean)

3. Beautyblender

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I’m not really a fan of the color pink (except for nude pink) but then I realized I needed some color in my life and so I decided to buy this hot pink beautyblender and voilà, color!!! Hahaha. I bring a beauty blender with me EVERYWHERE. This is just in case of emergency situations like, my make-up starts to become patchy or I didn’t blend it right or last minute, I need to reapply my concealer. This is one of those “just in case” make-up products but trust me, you will never regret bringing it with you cause one day, it could save you! Be sure to keep it clean though and so put it in the separate kit with your brushes! Best to protect all the tools that directly touch your face!

I got this from beautyMNL!

4. Concealers, concealers!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

During my everyday make-up routine, I apply concealer BUT SOMETIMES, the concealer either fades or becomes patchy and so it’s always best to bring your concealer around with you (especially if you have oily skin). I like to carry both concealers with me, the lighter shade (for under my eyes) and the other one for my blemishes.

So far, I’ve been loving these two concealers from the SAEM. The Cover Perfection Liquid Concealer is perfect for under my eyes because it is super moisturizing! My dark circles tend to be really dark cause I’m naturally pale and also my skin there gets dry and so I needed a concealer that would moisturize and cover my dark circles at the same time and so far this has been perfect! The other one has great coverage and so I use it for my blemishes and scars! It’s kind of similar to the NARS concealer and so if you wanna buy the NARS concealer but you’re on a tight budget, this would be the perfect substitute! For more info about these products, I will posting another review soon so stay tuned for that! 😉

You can buy these on Althea Korea!

5. Face Powder, a must!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Face powder is a big must for me! Especially if you have oily skin, like me. This allows your face to stay fresh and matte throughout the day! If your skin doesn’t work well with loose powder, you could always use pressed powder! Also, a lot of loose powder products come in big containers and so it’s kind of hassle to bring them around everywhere and so I bought this small powder container from beabi (again cause like I said, they have EVERYTHING) and refill it regularly so that I don’t have to bring the big powder container around. This makes it very convenient!

6. Blush!!!!!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I bring my blush with me everywhere I go. It’s a must. Like a MUST. Because one, I have oily skin and two, I’m very pale (naturally) and so if you put those together, basically the color on my face fades easily. And so I have to constantly reapply my blush. With this particular blush though, I have been reapplying it less because it actually stays longer on my face as compared to my other blush products. This is the Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush by the way in sensual.

Even though I don’t have to reapply this as often as before, I still bring it everywhere with me “just in case”.

7. Nudes & Color

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

One nude lipstick, one colored lipstick, that’s how I roll. I’m a very indecisive girl and so sometimes when I’m in a rush, I just grab my nude lipstick and head out the door. It’s my go-to shade because it’s simple and classy and so I ALWAYS make sure I have it with me. But then again, it’s great to have some color on and so along with my nude lisptick, I always make sure to have a different shade with me just to spice things up a bit. And for emergency purposes! Let’s say last minute I decide to go to a party or I have a last minute photoshoot and nude just won’t cut it, then I won’t have to worry because I got some color ready in my make-up kit! So that’s a tip for all of you out there! 😉

8. All for the Eyes: Mascara & Eyeliner

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Just a note! I don’t put mascara and eyeliner on everyday, just sometimes, but I keep these two in my make-up kit because you never know when you’ll need them! Sometimes in the middle of the day (while I’m out) I just decide, hey, I want to put on some mascara and so I go to the bathroom, bring out my trusty mascara (Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes) and apply! There is nothing wrong with adding a few extra make-up products into your make-up bag thinking you’ll need them later on! And so go ahead and toss that eyeliner and mascara in, you might just thank yourself later!

9. Eyebrow pencil/brush!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I have to admit that eyebrow make-up is a must for me. As you can see it looks very used… that’s because I use this every single day. And I always like to keep it inside my make-up kit, just in case! This is the K-Palette long lasting eyebrow powder. This is my ultimate fave because it pretty much lasts the whole day. I just like bringing it around with me because it makes me feel secure hahaha as I’ve said before, eyebrow make-up is a big thing for me and so I gotta have this in my make-up bag!

You can get this in the Beauty Bar!!!

10. YES LIP BALM!!!!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Okay. I cannot stress how much this has changed my life. I cannot go ANYWHERE without lip balm. Before I leave the house, I always make sure I have this because UGH I can’t live without it. Sadly, my lips get chapped super easily, I guess it’s cause I’m dehydrated all the time (and so drink water guys!!!) and so lip balm is an absolute must.

This is actually my favorite one right now. It’s not even just lip balm. You can use it for burns, insect bites, wounds. It’s AMAZING. It’s made from Papaya!!!! And so it super moisturizes my lips. The thing is, it’s only available in Australia and so if you have friends or family members who are going there soon, be sure to tell them to get this for you! It’s SUPER affordable 😉

11. Oil Blotting Paper

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Shoutout to all of you guys who have oily skin! This is a must for all of us. I do not know how I could last one day without this. Cause normal tissue just won’t cut it hahaha I tend to get oily after a few hours and so I need to use these daily! I use around 2 sheets a day or more especially if it’s really hot (and we’re in the Philippines and that’s pretty often). The good thing is that there are so many different kinds for different skin types and they are pretty much affordable everywhere.

I got this one at Watsons! It’s available in every branch and so no worries! I suggest that this be an important product inside your make-up bag because you wouldn’t want to spend the whole day with a shiny face plus it can also go into your pores and give you pimples!!!

12. Cleansing Wipes!!!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

These cleansing wipes are good for a lot of things! They can be used to wipe make-up off your face or clean your hands or for sanitary purposes and so it’s always great to have these inside your bag! It’s important to keep your face and hands as clean as possible and this helps with that. Also, there are many different kinds such as moisturizing wipes, cleansing wipes, baby wipes, etc! And so get the kind that you think you’ll need the most!

Always remember to stay clean that way your skin stays healthy and glowing! I bought these wipes from Miniso (which is like a Daiso-but a bit better hahaha) They sell many things from power banks to face masks! And their products are all affordable and so check them out!

TADAAAAAAA! That’s what’s inside leadiiinglady’s everyday make-up kit!!! Also, I added the links where you can buy some of these products so be sure to check them out! Hope this helped you guys in putting together your make-up kit! 🙂 Super enjoyed writing this post for you guys! ✨

9 Lipstick Shades & How to Rock ‘Em 💄

If I could choose only one make-up product to have with me on a deserted island, it would be my trusty little lipstick.

I honestly don’t know how I could go a day without wearing any! Even on a “no make-up” day, I make sure I’ve got some lipstick on. I guess it’s cause, one, I’m really pale and so if I don’t wear lipstick, I look dead and two, I just love how lipstick color can affect/change your whole look just like that.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

For this post, I am going to be showing you guys 9 different shades of lipstick and how to to rock ’em! Note: My make-up for this whole post is an ‘everyday make-up’ look and so I kept everything natural and light. I chose to do everyday make-up because I want to show you guys that you can wear these shades any time of the day! I mean, if you can work it, why not? Also, I think it’s fun experimenting with different colored lipsticks everyday without needing your face to be fully made with make-up. Plus, I’m saving the full on make-up look for another post coming soon 😉

BUT before we get to the make-up part, let’s first talk about lip care because I think this is very important.

I grew up with naturally chapped lips (so sad). I think it’s because I never drank enough water? And so ya’ll better make sure you hydrate to have nice soft lips. Anyway because of that, it’s always a challenge for me to wear lipstick, especially matte ones cause there are times when my lips are so dry and so they look terrible (ugh it’s so frustrating).

I, later on, realized that I needed to take special care of my lips considering the problems I have. So this is what I started to do:

1. HYDRATE

Drinking lots of water actually makes your lips look so much better. When you’re hydrated, your lips won’t be chapped. Try it! I swear it works!

2. EXFOLIATE

I exfoliate my lips at least three times a week with SARA HAPP Brown Sugar Lip Scrub. This helps me get rid of the dry skin and keeps my lips super smooth!

3. MOISTURIZE

Do you know what I hate? When I look for my lip balm in my bag and I realize I’ve forgotten it. It’s the worst feeling when I have to bear with chapped lips the whole day! When this happens, I usually go to the supermarket to find cheap lip balm because I cannot. I repeat, I CANNOT spend a whole day with chapped lips. And so keep this in your everyday make-up bag! Bring lip balm everywhere you go!!!

For my lip balm, I use Papaw! It’s from Australia. And it’s really affordable! When I went to Australia, I made sure to buy a lot! What makes it great is that it’s actually not just lip balm, you can use it to treat different things but the thing is it really moisturizes my lips and so I use it as my trusty balm.

4. LIP SLEEPING PACK

I got into this recently actually. About 6 months ago, I heard about Laneige and how everyone loved it. I saw this lip product and I was like… What is this??? I decided to buy it because of my chapped lips problem and voila it has done wonders for me!!! I put it on at night and I wake up with smooth, soft, moisturized lips! This Lip Sleeping Pack is a bit pricey but for all of you who suffer with the same problem I do, it is SO worth it.

Okay, now that we’re done with lip care, we can move on to the main feature of this post.

Here are 9 lipstick shades & how to rock each one!

“THE NUDES”

I am nude girl. I know that sounds weird but it’s true, for lipsticks at least.

Nude colors are my go-to lipstick shades. When I’m lazy to go through my lipstick collection, I just grab a nude lippie and head out the door! Recently, my fave has been NYX Soft Matte Cream in LONDON which is why I am going to start with this one!

NYX Soft Matte Cream in LONDON

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

As you can see, it looks like it’s been used a lot… which it has tbh. Like I said, this is my go-to lipstick. Since I’m pretty fair, nude shades look a bit more saturated on me which I really like. Even if I go with a nude shade, the color still pops.

For this, I went with a natural look. I used light pink & brown eyeshadow and topped it off with some super light gold. For my blush, I used a light orange/peach tone to keep the look simple and sweet

TARTEIST Glossy Lip Paint in OBVI

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

This is one of my other go-to nude lipsticks!!! This is more of a gloss though and so it doesn’t have a matte finish. I personally prefer matte but sometimes, I like to play around a bit and so this is my go-to glossy lip paint cause it’s very light pink and natural. This is Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint in shade OBVI!

For this look, I stuck to the natural everyday make-up look. Compared to the blush I used for the first look, I used one that’s more pink since my lips have a pinkier shade. As for the eyes, I kept it simple again with pink and rose shades from the Tartelette Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette.

***Note: I forgot to swatch NYX and I only started swatching now… hence the lack of this kind of picture above hahaha***

 Colourpop Lippe Stix in BRINK

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

When the Colourpop hype first started, this was the first thing I bought. I really like how it really saturates my lips but the pink is still pretty light. And it’s not drying!!! So that’s a plus! It’s not too glossy and not too matte.

Again, my make-up is very light. I like the “no-makeup make-up look” whenever I’m wearing nude/light pink lipstick. It just seems very simple and classy to me. For my everyday look, I tend to focus on my brows, cheeks and lashes, that way, I never look “too made up”.

 “GIVE ME SOME COLOR”

I’m not usually a ‘color’ type of girl. I get shy to pull off certain shades hahaha I would always go with some nude lipstick BUT when I’m in the mood to play around and try out different colors, I always have a fun time doing it! For this, I chose 3 shades: super pink, lavender and dark orange!

JEFFREE STAR Velour Liquid Lipstick in DOLL PARTS

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

This is some poppin’ pink liquid lipstick… as in Katy Perry POPPIN’. Hahaha since my skin is pretty fair, this color really pops! And so this is a lipstick I would wear if I were feeling tired but still wanna look alive and playful!

For this look, I decided to play around a bit! For my eyes, I used my Morphe 35W palette. I used pink shades! But still kept it light! For my blush, I used Makeup Revolution’s Sugar n’ Spice Blush palette because I wanted my blush to compliment my lips and so I chose the pinkest shade! Be careful not to overdo it though! You can go all pink without overdoing your whole look!

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in REQUIEM

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Talk about bringing out the purple!!! This liquid lipstick is crazy purple!!! It was my first time to try it and a purple lippie in general and so I was surprised at how purple it was. I don’t think I’ll be using this much though because purple shades don’t really look good on me. I don’t know if it’s cause I’m light or pale? They just make me look really down and ‘faded’. But anyway, I still had fun doing this look! Also just a note: this lipstick is truly everlasting. It took me forever to wipe it all off. Even when I was wiping it off my arm, it took so much effort!! And so kudos to you Kat Von D, it is truly everlasting.

For this look, I went with a rosier shade of pink/purple for my eyes. As for my blush, I went to purple side to match my lips but I still kept it light! Again, for this post, I want to showcase looks that can be used everyday and so most of my make-up looks here are very natural and light.

Kylie Mini Matte Liquid Lipstick in GINGER

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I don’t really do dark shades but this seems to really work for me. At first I was afraid (I was petrified… lol jk ok bye) that it wouldn’t look good on me cause it’s kinda dark but when I put it on, I saw that it had a nice dark orange shade.

For this look, I used Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 Palette. It has a super nice shade of orange that I wanted to try out. And so this was the perfect time to do so! Again, I kept it light and classy but I darkened my eyeliner and mascara just a bit for this look. Also, I kept my cheeks light and peach!

Usually when I wear dark shades like this one, I let my lips do all the talking, meaning, I don’t wear much face make-up and instead focus on the lips and let them shine!

“NIGHT TIME, PARTY TIME!”

Now we move on to the shades I like to call, “night time, party time”! These are the shades I would only wear at night or at a party or a concert or an event! BUT if you guys prefer to wear these colors during the day then go ahead and rock ’em! It’s just that for me, these colors are a bit too ‘loud’ and so I’m shy to wear them like to the mall or something hahaha

For these last few looks, I darkened my eyes a bit more so that I could get into that “night time, party time” mood! My make-up is still pretty light, like my face isn’t fully made and so this could actually still be a “day thing” if it works for you!

Colourpop Ultra Metallic in MAN EATER

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I LOVE THIS. I don’t wear it all the time but I freaking love this!!! I never thought I would like wearing something shiny and glittery but I tried it one time for my Thanksgiving dinner and I really liked how it looked. At first you may think that it may look “too much” but it’s actually really subtle and sweet-looking. Also, it is not drying at all! This is coming from a girl who has dry lips… and this is coloupop. And so that means something! And look at that glow!!!

For this look, I kept it natural still. Just added a bit of darker eyeliner and more mascara. I used my LORAC Pro Palette for this look and some peach color for blush.

Too Faced Melted Matte in LADY BALLS

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Lips as red as rose.

That’s how I would describe this liquid lipstick. I like the color red but I prefer dark red tbh. When it comes to bright red, I tend to stay away because I don’t feel super comfortable wearing it yet hahaha unless I’m going out at night (thus it’s in this group). I am super jealous of those people who can rock red lips any time of the day.

I decided to get this shade because I wanted to try it out, wearing really red lipstick. It’s still something I’m getting used to but for sure I am enjoying the “experimentation process” with the different looks and all. For this, I added a little red on my cheeks and I made my eye shadow darker, almost a smokey eye but not quite because again, I’m trying to keep it as natural as possible.

NYX Lingerie in BEAUTY MARK

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Last but definitely not the least, the darkest shade of them all: NYX Lingerie in Beauty Mark!

Lately, these really dark shades have been the “in thing”. Even the color black!!! Who knew that black would eventually become a lipstick color??? Hahaha I haven’t tried it yet but maybe soon, I will, just for fun! For this look, instead of focusing on the cheeks, I focused on my eyes. I did a bit of a smokey eye look but kept it simple with light brown, dark brown and gold shades. When it comes to SUPER dark colors, I make sure to add a bit more make-up on my face so that I don’t look like I’m “over-doing” it with my lipstick but hey, that’s just me.

There you have it! 9 lipstick shades and how to rock ’em! But before I end my post, here are a few more tips for you guys: one, always moisturize your lips before wearing any matte lipstick especially when it comes to Colourpop and Kylie cause these liquid lipsticks are very drying! Two, when in doubt, go nude! Nude lipsticks go with absolutely anything and so if you’re feeling lazy or you’re just in your sweats heading to the mall, go nude. Three, confidence is key to rocking great lipstick shades! Wear whatever shade you want, whenever you want! 💖
