It's that time again when you run out of products and you suddenly feel like you need much more than you already own. This past week I've been looking for new essentials of new brands that I really need or replacements for the products that I've used up. So I went on another drugstore trip the other day and I found these babies! This Sunday I decided to step out of my comfort zone with the result that I'm a shorty now! Yes, everyone is complaining about why I didn't keep my long hair ,but sometimes you got to do what you want to do in life. Long hair can be annoying also and I definitely do not regret chopping it off.
Because my hair is short now , I have to keep it to stay in model. I like to have a kind of wavy , messy hairstyle, especially when my hair is short. For months I've been looking for a good salt spray. Too bad such things are very hard to find in Belgium. Anyway, I did happen to stumble upon this salt spray by Schwarzkopf from the Got2be collection : mermaid look texturizing salt spray. What a mouthful... It has been volumizing my hair very well and I love the look of it. The packaging did not catch my attention at all, but when I saw that it was the only salt spray in store I bought it anyway.I do think hairspray is still needed with this look to set your hair in place. Your hair might get out of shape throughout the day even though I don't use hairspray much, the wind does the work for me . :)
It's important to have a good bronzer. Overall, bronzing is my favorite part when applying my make-up. I've always been using the Elizabeth Arden bronzer but I kind of feel like it rubs off my face too quickly. I do love the look of a strong and sharp bronzed face and I could not achieve it with the Elizabeth Arden one which is a slightly more expensive bronzer (that I stole from my mom). So when I went looking for a good one I thought 'Sometimes you got to try out cheaper products, it might easily surprise you!'. Which is definitely the case with this bronzer by Catrice. I swear by Spongebob's pineapple-house that it stays on the whole day, even without an expensive primer! I've been having a hard time finding a bronzer that would match my skin because I'm actually very pale for an asian and this one does the work for me.
You guys do not know how important a good wing on my eyes is to me, it makes my eyes appear a bit bigger. (Do keep in mind that I'm asian.) As we all assume, putting eyeliner on every single morning is quite a big task and it's even harder when you don't have a decent liquid eyeliner / gel liner.The liquid eyeliners I use always dry out too fast which drives me MENTAL. Especially when I wake up and see there is absolutely nothing left, and when they're not pitch black anymore the way I like it. My mom came home from Hema with this DIP Liner. It is as black as SnowWhite's hair (having a Disney moment). The plastic applicator is too hard for me too apply the liquid on my eyes so instead of that I prefer to use my eyeliner-brush. This totally gets my eyeliner on point and something very great : IT DOESN'T CRACK! The dip-liner stays on the whole day which I appreciate lots!
