A few things I picked up this weekend :)

The Shu Uemura eyelash curler. Been meaning to get this for a while now. It really is amazing!!

My favourite mask of all time. Shiseido's purifying mask. Comes out white; you leave it on your skin for 5 minutes, then rinse it off. Helps get rid of excess sebum and any other dirt in your pores. Really works!!! I've been using this for years!!

Shiseido's Hydra-Balancing softner. Suppost to be a toner. Not gonna lie, I got it because I don't currently use a toner, and this looked like the safest bet from Shiseido. Dries nicely and doesn't leave any residue/greasiness after. We'll see in a few weeks if this really does anything positive to my skin.

And lastly! Some SPF. Yes, I know this is for kids, but I got it thanks to Fuzkittie's recoomendation a while back. She said this is quiet nice and non-greasy. So far, I like it!

That is all! :) Hope everyone had a good weekend!

Everyday Makeup (Lorraine "TheCurrentCustom" Stanick's Everyday Makeup Contest Entry)

Hi everyone :)

I was meaning to do a post on this, but I figure I'll do it now since the lovely Lorraine is doing a contest for it! Here is my everyday makeup :)

**usually takes 10-15mins**

Here goes!

I start off with a clean face, and SPF. I then move to.....

The goody bag...

Moisturize those lips!

Urban Decay Primer Potion (looks gross, I know. Depotted)

Conceal undereye circles, and anything else that needs help :)

Foundation time! My all-time favourite; Shiseido Maquillage Pressed Powder. Best thing ever!

Do you like the case?! It was a collaboration between Shiseido and Christopher Kane :)

Eyebrows. Shu Uemura makes the best eyebrow pencils ever!!

Blush is next. Desire (matte hot pink) from Nars. Always gotta look like a doll ;)

Everyday is a day for a smokey eyes. I love wearing gray eyeshadows. This is my favorite palette, and I use it almost everyday. Guerlain's Ombre Eclat in Perle D'Argent 480.

Time to line the eyes. I use Annabelle's SmoothLiner in Gunmetal. They are one of the best pencils I've ever used. Smooth, don't smudge. and $10 each.

If I'm not using the YSL Faux Cils, I usually grab the Maybelline Define-a-lash in black. Both do the job.

And the brushes I use daily :)
-MAC 116
-Italian Badger Face brush
- Eyebrow/Eyelash brush from EcoTools
-MAC 217
-Lise Watier concealer brush

That is all!! :)
