My Makeup Essentials

NARS Blush in Deep Throat
MAC Face and Body Foundation in C7
NARS Bronzer in Casino
MAC Prep+Prime Translucent Powder
MAC Natural SkinFinish Mineralise Powder in Medium Deep
Chance by Chanel, Eau Fraîche
MAC Zoom Lash Mascara in ZoomBlack | NYC Liquid Eyeliner in Black

I've never worn a lot of makeup, but when I do I tend to keep it as simple and natural as possible. Over the years I've collected tips and product suggestions from friends, families, and make-up artists. These are the essentials that I love. They are easy to work with and create a healthy, natural and glowing look. I think I've accumulated a nice little collection and I'll explain why...

1. NARS Blush in Deep Throat 
Of course Orgasm is the infamous-universely-flattering blush by NARS but I like Deep Throat because the peach tone complements my skin better. Deep Throat is a pretty peach color that helps create a nice glow on my cheeks. I like to set it with translucent powder (see below) to create a lively flush on the cheeks. 


2. MAC Face and Body Foundation in C7
I use this for light and natural coverage. You can apply it easily with your fingers and it doesn't make you're skin feel dry or flakey. 


3. Nars Bronzer in Casino
Nars packaging is so seductive! I love how its so simple but significant and bold. Casino is dark brown bronzer with a shimmery golden undertone. It's matte and I love it because it looks natural on my skin tone!


4. MAC Prep+Prime Translucent Powder
I use this to set my makeup. I love it because this stuff makes your skin looks flawless. It blurs all your pores so your skin looks perfect! It's looks like baby powder but it genuinely works so well! This product takes shine away so it creates a matte look. It actually works. Like for real. Go buy it. 


5. MAC Mineralize Powder Natural Skinfinish in Medium Deep
Two words: natural glow! This stuff makes your skin look good and its good for your skin. What more could you want?


6. Chance by Chanel, Eau Fraîche
Eau Fraiche is the most youthful and girly variation of the iconic Chance collection. I bought Eau Fraiche a couple months ago and am officially ADDICTED. It's light, fresh, flowery, sweet, girly, and simply classic.


7. MAC Zoom Lash Mascara
This is hands down my favourite beauty product, EVER. It creates bold lashes with a lot of volume and length. I have thick naturally curly eyelashes and it really emphasizes and exaggerates that. I will never use another mascara, it's amazing! 


8. NYC Liquid Liner
This liner has a great little brush that makes it easy to do a dramatic cat-eye. It's easy to apply, lasts long, but it's also easy to remove (yay!!).

  1. I am a huge fan of the NARS line for blushes, but have yet to try Deep Throat. I'm wondering if it works well on Asian skin-tones as well?
