It has been requested of me for quite a while to do a list of  “My Go To Beauty Products“. Most of the stuff are from MAC cosmetics… Yes,I have to admit that I’m love with many of their make-up. Somehow it works for my skin (oily-combination) wonderfully. As it is Summer right now, I am not using any liquid foundation (during winter I used Revlon Color Stay and MAC studio fix fluid). So here we go… these are things that I reach out everyday for my daily make up.

Dior Palette


I’d like to go in details a little bit for my Dior Palette. I bought it from a Duty Free Shop, Madrid Airport. It was meant to be a travel make up kit but somehow I could’t stop using them. Eye shadow colors are very beautiful, very pigmented. They came with lip glosses and blush also. You can see that some of the colors I hit the pan already. And until today, I’m still in love with this palette.

MAC lipstick Faux & Chanel Glossimer no. 129


Lip Combo : MAC lipstick Faux (Satin Finish), and Chanel Glossimer no. 129. They are great combination. Faux gives a light mauve rose and Chanel lip gloss just tops it off with beautiful slight red shimmers … keep my lips moisturized. The texture of both products are amazing!

You might be looking for great concealers that suit your skin type. With a warmer weather, we need something that stays on under the heat and has a long lasting power. There are some great products out there that obtain quite good recommendations. I always have a concealer in my make-up bag. During summer, I rarely need a liquid foundation. To get a non-greasy look, I just apply a concealer and setting powder then I am good to go! Here are some that you may want to try. Enjoy!
