Tagged: My Beauty Secrets...?

I was tagged by thechas for this one :)

Hmm these aren't really secrets at all....as most of these products that I use are due to the influence of Asian Beauty Blog or fellow bloggers.

Foundation:
Currently Buff'd foundation in Sand is my favourite, I just started using it last weekend and it has the best coverage of all the mineral foundations I've tried. My skin doesn't seem to like liquid foundation... :S
Mascara:
Blinc Kiss Me mascara is my fave as it doesn't smudge, but comes off easily when I want it to. It doesn't volumize much but I'm okay with that. I can always use falsies otherwise...
Blush:
Everyday Minerals matte blushes! nothing comes close to their pigmentation. I find their shimmery blushes can be a bit overkill though, for shimmer I prefer MAC MSFs :)
In particular:
Matte: Everyday Minerals Apple blush
With shimmer: MAC Light Flush MSF
Eyeshadow:
Cream eyeshadows - definitely Shiseido Hydro Powder shadows :)
Powder eyeshadows - MAC shadows and pigments
Palettes - Majolica Majorca GR741 palette, Coffret D'or 3D palette in blue

Day cream:
Lancome Aqua Fusion SPF 15

Lipstick: Lavshuca lipstick in PK-1, MAC 3N lipstick, Lancome 302 SOS Pink.

Beauty Product Brand: MAC, Dior, Shiseido, Kanebo's sub-brands (Coffret d'or, Lavshuca etc), Everyday Minerals

Essential Beauty Product:
Skincare - Face cream with SPF
Makeup: Used to be mascara, but now I find foundation more crucial because my skintone looks uneven and also makes me look tired :(

Favourite Beauty Product: MAC Global Glow MSF, because I can use it as eyeshadow and blush for a convenient low maintenance look.

Perfume: Masaki Matsushima Cherry perfume!

Nails: The cheap 100 yen polishes are still my faves out of what I own :P I like sheer pink-peach colours in general. But I don't get to wear nail polish anymore though, just on my toes :(

Feet: Nothing - i neglect them so much! when they get really dry i'll exfoliate the heels. in summer i'll do a french pedicure look if i have the time.

Hands: Bliss Naked Body Butter

Three products to bring on a deserted island: Face cream with SPF, facial wash, soap lol

Woman I Adore for Her Beauty:
Natalie Portman

Woman With the Best Sense of Style:
hard to pick because I have many favourites but no single one stands out over the others as being "the best".

My Ultimate Dream (but I do not believe in selling my soul to the devil for it): Living the expatriate life in Japan or France with my bf in a spacious house, and earning lots of money to put towards our hobbies and retirement :P

How Do I Define Womanhood:
Hard to define in words, but with questions like this I think of Keira Knightley in Pirates of the Carribean 3 lol. I guess to put it in words, to be strong and command respect of both men and women.

My Favorite Fashion Publication:
None in particular...I just browse whatever looks good at the magazine aisles.

Lately I've been finding foundation more crucial too although it's probably not a good thing. I've been thinking about investing in some higher quality skincare products so I wouldn't have to wear as much foundation. We'll see. Mainly it's to cover up the redness on my cheeks.
