Beauty Essential | 9 to 5

Wednesday, 17 August 2016

I've been working for more than 4 months now and I'm slowly getting myself into the whole routine from morning till late evening which is why it's imperative to have some essential items with me throughout the day.


Let's start with the last thing I put on before I walk out of the house which is my choice of fragrance for work, My Burberry from Burberry

One thing you probably don't know about me is the fact that I love rain. Yes, the weather, season, (Forks is a dream place to live) and most importantly, the smell of rain. This perfume really just giving me that along with hints of formality and appropriateness. Of course, Cara Delevingne (ultimate girl crush!) was one of the reason to get this perfume but still, this is one of my all-time favourite luxury perfume.




If I need to touch up my makeup (I'm using foundations more than my BB Cushion these days as I usually spend long hours in the office) or if I were just using sunscreen as the last step in my skincare routine, I'll use this Kate Liquid Touch Powder Foundation in the shade of OC-D on top of it. This compact powder spreads really well on my skin and I use a kabuki brush in circular motion to buff the powder on my facial area when I use it prior sunscreen but for touch ups, I merely use the provided sponge. 


Though my first high-end makeup is Burberry Beauty, the sheer makeup concept is not really that appealing to me due to imperfections on my skin (plus, the brand is not available in Sabah) so I moved on to Marc Jacobs Beauty. The first item that I bought is a lipstick which is this Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick in J'Adore 230 and followed by a lip liner. I have to say that the formulation is definitely the bomb! It just glides like dream with one coat of colour is already enough to cover my lips, the colour does stays well and it feels light too!


As a Starbucks addict, of course I had to get that Starbucks Malaysia Cards Album and as I'm blessed to be able to redeem 2 for myself, I turned the second album I got into a simple notebook. Now, it's a staple in my bag! Check out my post on here!

   

As for the Charles & Keith bag, I bought the bag first back in 2014 and it can fit a notebook, a purse, my phones, pens and some other items that I need despite its smaller look. 

   

Then sometime back in 2015, my purse fell apart so I had to get a new one that happens to match it. There are 2 sides, shown on the left, the huge pocket for cash and receipts while the other side has slots for credit cards and whatnot. There's also coins pocket but I don't really use it as I have separate coin purse for that. It's been more than a year but the purse haven't showed any sign of tear or change in shape. Truly love its durability.
