This is a very very very late posting. My apologize.
I wish to share what I had inside my make up pouch when I was travelling. So here are some photos from my India trip in September last year. Well, it was around 5 months ago, and gosh, time flies so fast.
I have been a loyal user of La Mer skincare products for more than 5 years. All of my skincare products are from this brand. To be honest, they cost me quite a fortune. But after 2 decades of trying and using various skincare products I found out that La Mer products are the most suitable cream for my skin type. I noticed that since I used La Mer's creme de la mer, I never visited a dermatologist. So let's just say that I have saved some money from not visiting the dermatologist (and saved my time too! Doctor queue was always long), hence I think it is quite acceptable that I have splurged on this skincare brand. My daily routine is to apply Creme de la Mer, eye cream and sun block in the morning. It's such a simple regime.
Now let's talk about my make up. Currently I like Giorgio Armani and Bobbi Brown products. I love their colour palettes (for eyes especially) because they offer natural-look finishes and the textures of their make up products (eye shadow, blush on, lipstick) are just divine and long lasting.
I can summarize that my make up regime is also simple. For me, the most important things are to get protected and luminous skin and to have balanced eyebrows. I have asymmetric eyebrows (i.e. different arch, thickness and shape), so I desperately need to have them 'equally drawn' lol. The rest of my make up stuffs are used to add colors to my face (especially lips) so that I do not look too pale. However for daily activities (especially for school runs) I rarely applied the eye shadows or blush on. I would apply them on my face when attending a more formal event (not when I am going to kids' school). And please notice that I do not carry mascara inside my make up pouch. It is intentionally excluded. Because mascara is the last item that I would use. Somehow, applying mascara never works well for me. I sweat a lot and tend to have oily skin around the eyes. Therefore if I put on mascara on my eye lashes (even the waterproof one), they would smudge quickly. I have tried many mascara brands including the high end brands, but this smudge issue always happened. Well, maybe I need more practice on that mascara department, but now I am quite content with my look without the mascara and for an indefinite period I will leave this issue unsolved... lol
