Combinations I'm Loving Right Now

I have been experimenting with make-up products that I have.

I want to share my favorite combinations for face, eyes, and lips. I was thinking of doing it separately- face combination in one post, lips in one post, and eyes in a different post, but I think it will be easier for me to show it all together. I have so many beauty products that I want to share with you, but for now this is what I have in mind.

If you are a follower and a reader of my blog, you will know that my least favorite beauty product is mascara. I know it's a shocker, but I'm just not a big fan a mascaras of any kind. I can't go out with out eyeliner, blush, bronzer, lipstick, and lipgloss, but surprisingly I can show myself without mascara. Now, I'm trying to wear mascara as often as I can, so I can learn to love it. I just bought Diorshow Extase and Cover Girl Lash Blast a week ago to wear and experiment. I realized that mascaras can make a big difference to your eyes- it makes my eyes bigger and more awake.


I'm going to show what beauty product combinations I'm loving right now.

First, the FACE
MAC By Candlelight MSF- highlight cheek bones

MAC Stereo Rose MSF- as a blush on top of NARS Madly

NARS Madly- I'm IN LOVE WITH THIS! Used it as a blush under Stereo Rose

NARS Laguna- used it as a bronzer all over the face. (the other shade in the pan is Orgasm Blush which I did not use) those cheek bones! :)

Smashbox Pout lipgloss- I have been using this gloss for a week non stop. I had this in my stash for a long time but didn't get a chance to use it often.

MAC Angel Lipstick- everyone needs this pink lipstick and I bet everyone has this already.

Lastly..the EYES

Cover Girl Lash Blast- I use this first to help lengthen my lashes. For me, this doesn't work in terms of volumizing my lashes.

Diorshow Extase - I use this on top of Lash Blast because it gives more drama to the eyes with a little bit of volume here and there. This mascara is great if worn alone it lengthens and volumizes at the same time.

*no eyeshadows and eyeliner on this picture. I'm trying bare eyes with just mascara on. I must say, I like it. :)

What are your fave combinations at the moment? Share it with us :)

Have a lovely Wednesday everyone :)

hugs, kim

    I've recently been using two mascaras layered to get the look I want - I can't just use one anymore! I wish we could get Cover Girl in the UK...I keep hearing good things about Lash Blast. x

  8. The Dior Show Extase is amazing! I got a promo size of it and love it since then. the best mascara ever! It makes a big difference to buy high quality mascara. I used to hate it too but now I know that's because I used to buy cheap ones. The more expensive ones are really better.

  9. Oh don't knoww how you can make do without mascara - it's a must have item for me. Even when I don't have time to do my make-up or just don't bother putting it on, mascara is always a must for me. Makes such a difference to the eyes.
