You sweet readers always ask me questions about what beauty products I use so I thought I’d round up of a few of my current favourites for a post today :-). It often takes me a while to find products that I love and know I’d personally re-buy – my skin is naturally oily and products often only stay on for a couple of hours before deciding to disintegrate on my skin. So aside from the fact that primer is my best friend, I’m always looking for products that are long wearing, crease proof and do not oxidise.

I will never recommend a product I have only used once because I always need to wear something multiple times in order to know whether it works for my skin. These products below are all ones I’ve been using for a fair while and are ones I would personally recommend to all my friends and readers.

1) Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation: I use this and also MAC Studio Fix with SPF. Both leave a flawless finish however Luminous Silk is definitely what I reach for for every day wear – it doesn’t oxidise as much as Studio Fix and has a really light but build-able texture.

2) Dior Vernis & Essie polish: My top two polish brands that will stay on your nails long after you’ve gotten sick of the colour.

3) Dior Diorshow art pen: I would say I’m more of a gel liner girl however I just haven’t found one that works for me yet. My eyelids are extremely oily and everything I put on my eye always ends up transferring to my upper lid and bottom lid at some point during the day. MAC Fluidline is probably the best I’ve tried so far when it comes to gel – I’m still hoping to find something even more perfect than that though. Whilst I’m searching, I have found liquid seems to stay put a little better than gel – this Dior liquid liner has been doing a pretty good job on staying where it belongs.

4) ModelCo fibre lash: There needs to be more of these kinds of products in Australia. This is definitely the secret to longer and more voluminous lashes for all Asians like me who don’t have all that many lashes. Love it to bits.

5) Clinique chubby stick: I’ve basically stopped using lipstick ever since I popped open one of these. It’s a moisturising lip balm but has a really nice tint that almost makes it look like a light creamy lipstick. So good for every day wear – I bring it with my every where.

I hope this answers a few of your questions and gives you an insight on what I use both every day and to create my posts here. As always, I’m happy to answer any questions you might have :-)
