Beauty Tag from Erika

I was tagged by Erika of Erikajjang!~ recently. Erika is one of the cutest bloggers that I've met in the blogosphere. I was happy to meet her personally during the Etude House Playhouse Pink Fair event last year (Click on the link to read more about that pink event! ^__^). ^__^

Going back to the tag... Here's mine!

[Blusher or Bronzer]
I've been a blusher-lovin' girl since I started using makeup. I've only started learning the art of contouring last year, after I realized that my round face needed a little dimension, no matter how young-looking I want to be.  =D

In my stash:

e.l.f Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder & Fashion21 Duo Blush-On

[Lip Gloss or Lip Stick]
Lipstick! I like using lipsticks because they are more pigmented as compared to lipglosses, which give only shine. However, on special days, I add dimension to my lips using a lipstick and lipgloss combo. Works great! ^__^

In my stash:
Fanny Serrano True Light Liquid Lipstick in Light Petal, BeautyUK Lip Lust in Barbie Girl & Maybelline Volume Seduction XL Lip Plumper in Proud Pink

[Lip Balm or Lip Butter]
Lipbalm. I've never tried lip butters before. One of my loved lipbalms for 2012 is the Maybelline Baby Lips in Smoothing Cherry. I loved it so much that I made four posts on it last year, recording the progress of my lips using it:
  1. Initial Thoughts
  2. Full Review after Seven-Day Test
  3. After 50 Days of Use
  4. After 87 Days of Use

As of now, I've run out of it already but I am getting two of them soon. I'd like to get the same variant I bought months ago, the Smoothing Cherry kind and the Anti-Oxidizing Berry variant. ^__^

In my stash:

CoverGirl Natureluxe Gloss Balm in Hibiscus & Miners Tin o' Tint in Vanilla

[Matte or Sparkle Eye shadows]
I love both! But since hubby got me the Le Faerie Cosmetics Super Palette, I try to make use of the matte shadows. I practice using subtle colors on my peepers, so that when I start working in the school, I won't have to come to school in shining, shimmery, splendid eyes! Hahaha! I still love shimmery shadows, though. They brighten up my eyes and give me that glowing appearance. *makes pa-cute*

Pink One-Point Makeup look
This was my contest entry in Korea Cosmetics' contest. I used a pink shimmery shade that gave me a youthful appearance. I haven't blogged about it yet. =D

In my stash:

Le Faerie Cosmetics Super Palette (180 colors)

[Foundation or Concealer]
I prefer using BB Cream. My holy grail BB Cream would have to be the Skinfood Aloe Sun BB Cream. Excellent coverage. I would save up for another tube of it. Now, I combine BB Cream and Concealer because I have lots of acne marks to hide. Gyah! Hormonal acne, you're a bummer! -__-

 I only use foundations on special occasions. =)

In my stash:

Nichido Foundation Stick in Beige, Fanny Serrano Concealer Stick in Cashew, Revlon Age Defying Spa Foundation in 003 Light, Purederm Magic BB Cream & Hanskin Mineral Magic BB Cream

[Gel, Liquid, Cream or Pencil Liner]
I like liquid and cream liners. I like using liquid liners because they look so precise and vivid. Cream eyeliners  give me a fierce and intense look. ^__~

OMO~! Goo Hara's eye makeup is so pretty!!! I missed wearing eyeliners like this!!! =D

On days that I feel like emphasizing my eyes but don't want to make it look obvious, I smudge on a pencil liner on my upper lash line. It helps a lot in making me look awake. =)

FOTD 122212: Feelin' fresh after the so-called "End of the World"...
See? Only BB Cream + Eyeliner + Mascara + Blush + Lipstick

In my stash:

Wet N' Wild Mega Eyes Cream Liner in Black & Fanny Serrano Soft Eye Pencils in Black and Dark Brown

[Loose Powders or Pressed Powders]
Loose powders can be messy and pressed powders can be cakey. It depends on my mood. I sometimes layer them for more lasting power and coverage. =)

In my stash:

Avon Simply Pretty Shine No More Dual Powder Foundation in Almond & Nichido Final Powder in Natural

[Powder, Cream or Liquid Highlighters]
I prefer using powder highlighters. On days when my skin is calm and I don't have much blemishes, I mix a portion of my MAC Strobe Cream with BB Cream for a more luminous and dewy glow. =)

In my stash:

e.l.f Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Luminance & MAC Strobe Cream

[Brushes, Sponges or Fingers] 
I used to use my fingers for applying BB Cream. But now that I have a flat top brush, it is easier for me to apply face products. I still use my fingers on putting on makeup. Besides, fingers help warm up any product, making it easier to work with. I rarely use sponges. If ever I do, I use it for patting on pressed foundation on top of BB Cream. =)

In my stash:

Beauty Cosmetics, Marionnaud,, Ever Bilena Advance & Divisoria Brushes with Fanny Serrano Lash Curler

[Waterproof or Non-waterproof]
I prefer waterproof makeup. Its good that it was part of the tag. It made me realize that I got a lot of waterproof products. I like using waterproof products so that they won't fade easily if I sweat or cry. =D

In my stash:

Fashion 21 Waterproof Mascara with Lash Conditioner in Black, Purederm Magic BB Cream, Fanny Serrano Concealer Stick in Cashew, Wet N' Wild Megaplump Mascara in Black, Wet N' Wild Mega Eyes Cream Liner in Black & Fanny Serrano Soft Eye Pencils in Black and Dark Brown

[Can’t Live Without Product]
Now, I can't live without BB Cream. Ever since last year, my hormonal acne worsened, making me suspect that my PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) has gotten worse. I can get away with BB Cream and lipstick/balm. =)

In my stash:

CoverGirl Natureluxe Gloss Balm in Hibiscus, Purederm Magic BB Cream,  Hanskin Mineral Magic BB Cream & Miners Tin o' Tint in Vanilla

These are what I use on a regular basis, especially when I feel lazy to put on some makeup. =D

There you have it! I tag the following ladies:
