Vanity Much

A lot of my readers have been bugging me to share my beauty secrets. Finally, I gave in! :-) Joke lang! Wala naman nangungulet talaga, gusto ko lang i-post!

So anyway, I would like to share with you what I believe is the BASIC make up kit that every girl should have…


  1. A good facial moisturizer. I am a firm believer that it is most important to keep our face moisturized. To achieve that younger looking skin and fresh look. If we take care of our skin, we definitely need less make up. I use OLAY Total Effects and OLAY White Beauty Moisturizer simply because they are perfect for me. I love the fact that they are not oily at all and they keep my face moisturized the whole day. They are a bit pricey but definitely worth it. (Note: you have to make sure though that before you apply moisturizer, your face must be clean.)
  2. An eyelash curler and a perfect mascara. Our eyes is the window of our souls. It is typical to hear guys say that the first thing they look at a girl is their eyes. I believe it so. And having that thick lashes add beauty and glamour in an instant. And most of the time, you don’t need an eye shadow to brighten your eyes. Just use an eyelash curler and apply a blob of mascara and you’re good to go. I use Fanny Seranno’s Mini Eyelash Curler and The Magnum Volume Express Super Film Mascara by Maybelline. I love the fact that my eyelash curler is small and doesn’t occupy much of space, also I use it to curl even those hard to curl areas that most normal size curlers can’t reach. As for my mascara, I used to be a fan of MAC mascaras. However, price-wise they are not worth it. Most mascaras tend to dry up within 2 months so I really think buying those expensive ones are ridiculous. Thank goodness to a friend of mine who introduced me to Maybelline and their great but affordable mascaras! Yey! I have found my perfect match. :-) So far, I am loving mine. Perfect, really!
  3. A good foundation or pressed powder. Of course, I guess every girl have one of these. If you still haven’t outgrown your loose powder, then I guess it’s time for you to grow up and get one. Silly girl! :-P I have Maybelline Clear Smooth Extra Shine Free Powder Foundation with SPF 20 in Honey. I have always loved these babies. Been using them for ages. They have the best shade for me that never fail me.
  4. That perfect shade of lipstick. Of course, this is another must have. We must always have that kissable lips all day right? For those who want to achieve that natural, fresh look then you must keep shades that are closest to your lip color. Keep away from those vibrant ones. I have AVON Ultra Moisture Rich with SPF 15 in Tangerine. Simply because the shade is just light and the lipstick is uber moisture rich that I don’t need to add a blob of lip gloss. The shade is also perfect for my complexion. They make my lips look soft and just naturally pinkish.
  5. Lip Balm. Again, as one moisture addict, I always need a lip balm to achieve that soft kissable lips. Mine is Burn Lippy Raspberry Lip Balm from The Body Shop. Again, this is something I’ve been using for ages. Simply because they are so sweet and smells really really nice. They are also not that greasy but gives just the right amount of gloss. I love them especially now that it’s getting really cold.

So there you are! My make up must haves. I never leave the house without them. :-)

As for that, let me leave you a quote from my all-time hero…

“I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”
