Makeup essentials

Me and makeup - we just don't mix. At least not on a daily basis. I usually put on some makeup for special occasions or when I have some spare time on my hands. Even then my makeup is normally very natural looking. If I feel brave, I use some black eyeliner and black eye shadow for "party time makeup" but that's not often. Since I got my new big Ray Ban glasses I use darker makeup more, because I think big glasses need "big makeup". :) But today I'm showing you products that I use the most. I like them all, but I'm looking for a new brown kajal pencil, new favorite lipgloss/lipstick and a fancier eye shadow palette.

1. Bourjois healthy balance unifying powder in 52 Vanille; 2. Everyday Minerals carnauba concealer in Fair (in the summer I combine it with Medium); 3. Beauty UK eye shadow palette no. 4 - Earth Child (I use the four brown shades in the middle); 4. Essence I <3 Extreme crazy volume mascara; 5. Essence Rebels soft matte lipgloss in 01 Mauve like a rockstar (I have to throw it away cause it's old, but I love it!) ; 6. S-he stylezone khol kajal pencil in 004 (nothing special, I need a better one); 7. Catrice defining blush in 020 Rose Royce

Here are the swatches of the lipgloss and the blush - the only two "not nude, brown or black" products I use. Photo was taken in natural daylight (as much as we have it here in rainy Ljubljana). :)
