FOTD: Current Favorites

Hello! Sharing with you the makeup look I sported a few days ago. Oh, and I'm also gonna share with you some of my current favorites in this post! 


First is my new favorite face photos spot - right outside the house. You can even see the screen door and the glass window, oh. The lighting is so much better here.


For the face, I used:
Ever Bilena Studio Finish Stick Foundation in Creme
Maybelline Mineral Power Concealer in Light
4U2 dreamGirl BB Powder in 02

Second is my current fave foundation - Ever Bilena's Studio Finish stick foundation. It's cheap and locally available (and widely at that), and I love the coverage and the finish it provides. I have a review of this product already. Click *here* to read it :)

Third is my current fave powder - the 4U2 dreamGirl's BB powder. Will post about it soon. I like how it makes my skin looks so smooth (on photos too) especially when used on top of the stick foundation.

Fourth is my current fave foundation brush - the one from the Suesh dual-ended brush kit I ordered from Zalora.

It's so soft and not scratchy. I love using it to spread and blend the EB cream foundation.


For the eyes, I used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Evidence
LA Colors Mineral Eyeshadow in Pacific
In2it Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in 01 Very Black
Stila Trendsetting in Tokyo Palette

Decided to use UD Evidence (from House of Flair) again but this time, without Half Baked. Went for a subtle purple smokey look here. Sorry, forgot to take close-up photos of the eye makeup. 


For the cheeks, I used:
ELF Natural Radiance Blusher in Shy

Fifth is my current fave blush brush - a Landmark blush brush that looks like the Sigma F84!


It's so sooooft! Gonna share my Landmark brush haul in my next post :)

For the lips, I used:
Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick in Bare It All (902C)


And last but not the least is my current fave nude lipstick - WNW Bare It All. The best nude lippy I've tried so far. I've only tried a few pa lang naman - CoverGirl TruShine (which is too sheer for my liking), Ever Bilena Skin and Mauvey (drying and leaves a film on the inside of my lower lip after a few hours), Le Faerie lipgloss (transfers easily 'coz it's a gloss) and NYX matte lipstick in Butter (washes me out). WNW Bare It All is a natural-looking nude shade on my lips. I love it. Will post about it, of course.



And that's it for my longest FOTD post so far! Have you tried any of the products mentioned in this post? What are your current faves? :)

  4. Thanks Kath! I don't know if they have bb pact. Heard something like bb pact from Etude House, not 4U2 :) Not sure, though. Haven't tried anything with that label eh :)
