Hello, gorgeousness! I get asked all the time about my everyday makeup routine and what my favorites are. But for the most part, people have been curious about my foundation routine which was already up on the blog and you can go ahead read that one too.

As for today's blog post, I am finally putting my everyday glam makeup routine together for you guys. I thought I would go through a full face of favorites as well with y'all. Most of these products I have been using for years. I trust and love them so much. Some are a little newer but they all are must-haves in my routine.


Primer

My current favorite primer is the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. You must moisturize and prime your face before putting on makeup for that long-lasting effect, gals. This primer, in particular, is good if you want matte, poreless and smooth canvas before putting makeup on.

Liquid base

Maybelline Superstay 24HR Full Coverage foundation. This is one of my favorite foundations ever. I didn't get to try a lot of foundation in my life because I tend to stick to what I trust and love for many many years until I discover something new. Anyway, I love the coverage and longevity of this foundation. It's suitable for people that have a long day at work and just love a high coverage foundation in general.


Concealer

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer is love. I will legit get a panic attack when I am running low on this concealer. I am not even joking. I love it more than Shape Tape to be completely honest.

Setting

When it comes to powders, my skin can be pretty particular and this IN2IT Cover Smooth Loose Powder is amazing. I use it to set my foundation and concealer and it's perfect. Not drying or cakey whatsoever. This is one of the amazing drugstore loose powders and if you're looking for one, look no further.

Brow

I'm using the Silkygirl Natural Brow Pencil in Dark Brown for ages! No matter how many brow products I have tried in the past, I will always go back to this one. It's cheap and it's definitely my go-to.

Eyeshadow

This is one of the parts where I genuinely think takes the most of my time when I am getting ready. The eyes. I have been loving my 'Yes, Please' eyeshadow palette from Colourpop for quite some time but I recently bought the Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette and I honestly can't go my day without using it now. The shade He Devil, Lumbre and En Fuego are my faves! I also love the darker shades in here. It's actually perfect for me to resemble the look of a smoky liner.


Mascara

For mascara, I have really been loving the IN2IT Lash Define mascara and the L'oreal Lash Paradise mascara. I know, I know. I retract what I said about the L'oreal Lash Paradise in that blog post. To be honest, it's one phenomenal mascara. If you want big, voluminous lashes, then this could potentially be your BFF.

Blusher

I recently discovered a more inexpensive blusher ever existed. That is the Essence Matt Touch Blush in the shade Peach Me Up. If you love peachy, corally kind of blush, I recommend trying this one out. The staying power is amazing! However, I just hate the packaging. It's so fragile. I mean, it's a 14 ringgit blusher, to begin with.

Highlighter

After all these years, I'm still obsessed with my Mary-Lou Manizer. It's a really pretty champagne highlight that I use all over the cheekbones, browbones, bridge of my nose, tip of my nose, cupid's bow, inner corner of my eyes - basically, everywhere. A little extra pop won't hurt, no?


Lipstick

I cannot just wear one lipstick. I love to mix lipstick colors to match my preferred lip combo. For everyday usage, I love the Maybelline Powder Matte Lipstick in Toasted Brown + Maybelline Creamy Matte in Craving Coral. As of lately, I am living for the red/orange-toned lippies and Craving Coral is like the perfect shade for me.

So, that wraps up my go-to everyday glam makeup routine. Let me know if you want me to do reviews of any of these products. And have you used any of the products mentioned? Tell me your thoughts in the comments!

Let's Talk Base | Affordable Base Makeup

Hello, awesomeness. Your bargain gal is back and today it's all about that base. I get asked all the time about what kind of foundation I used and what my favorites are, so I am finally putting this together for you guys.

I am keeping this series (hopefully it'll be a successful series *fingers crossed*) affordable on purpose because who doesn't love a good drugstore gem? And I shared quite a lot of drugstore products I used here in my blog, so it's fitting. If this sounds interesting to you, just keep reading!

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser | RM29.90

I love this primer. It's an old favorite. Ever since I revisited and reused this primer for the last couple of months, I am definitely hooked, again. I forgot how good it fills my pores and how it makes my skin so smooth. When I wear this primer, my foundation sits well on top and it doesn't break me out too.

MAYBELLINE SUPERSTAY 24HR Full Coverage Foundation | RM54.90

I am a major fan of this foundation! But wait for a second, I was a lover of the Maybelline Fit Me foundation for as long as I can remember. It is the foundation that I have repurchased so many times and it never fails me. However, I have been itching to try the Superstay line and I am super glad I did. If the Fit Me one is good, the Superstay is even better!

The coverage and longevity are no joke. It is soooo much better than Fit Me. I love me some full coverage foundation on a day to day basis, it's just how I am. It doesn't break me out though, I am an oily gal, just a heads up. I love everything about it. It's a wonderful product.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer | RM39.90

I honestly think this concealer is over-mentioned in my blog. It's crazy good. Sometimes it drives me nuts because it performs so well and for that price? Come on...

By the way, yes, you can absolutely tell that Maybelline has a really good track record with me. I am not getting paid by them by any means. Now, back to the concealer. I love wearing this especially for my under eyes. It covers really, really well with minimal creasing. I also love it for highlighting too. What more can I say? It's my baby.

IN2IT Cover Smooth Loose Powder | RM17.50

Seriously, what am I without this powder? It sets my under eyes, smile lines, nose, forehead and chin beautifully, even when I am almost done with my day, my makeup still looks bomb. If you happen to have fine lines on certain areas of your face, powders can settle in those areas. However, in my case, it doesn't do that all that much with this loose powder.

IN2IT Face Poppin' Blur Pressed Powder | RM27.50

I shouldn't even mention this because it's a limited edition collection but I couldn't help it. It's another great, affordable product from IN2IT and somebody has to know. This powder is true to its blurring claims and it gives me the extra coverage that I like. After setting my face with the loose powder, I will lightly set all over my face with this powder and my skin was like facetuned the house! So smooth and I love it.

IN2IT Make-Up Stay Mineral Setting Mist | RM16.00

Last but not least - is this wonderful setting spray. Drugstore brands really stepping up their game and coming out with awesome setting sprays. Who would've thought a tiny setting spray like this could do wonders. I love how it gives even spritz every time and the mist is super fine! It did make my makeup stay flawless for a little bit longer than usual.
