Makeup products I cannot live without

Hey all, I have wanting to write this blog for such a long time, but I was waiting to narrow products- I only wanted the “most essential” to fall in this list and so, I have like five products here. Also, I only wanted to capture the makeup items, and not have skin care included, only because skin care would take up another blog….. oh yeah! Its summer time and my skin goes crazy oily!

Well, its oily on most parts of the face, just leaving my nose to be dry, so getting the right product on my skin is a bit of challenge. Tell me, if you also have the same problem 😒

So getting back to the topic, on weekends when I go out, I need more than just these, because I want to feel glamorous (eeeee.. yep); yeah I like getting all dressy. But the ones mentioned here are my definite go-to’s for when you just need that clear skin but do not want to put to shit ton of makeup.

1. Maybelline Dream BB Fresh

So going according to their usage, I love the Maybelline Dream BB Fresh 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector. I am in the shade 120 Medium Sheer Tint and this gives a pretty sheer coverage to my face. I can apply it easily with bare hands and it gives a clean finish to my face hiding some spots here and there. If you are looking for medium to full coverage, I would recommend you staying away from it as this just gives a tiny bit of coverage.

2. Revlon Brow Fantasy by ColorStay

I use Dark Brown and this is a pretty decent buy. It has a pencil crayon on one side and a gel on the other side and has markings on it to denote that the pencil goes 1st and then the gel. My brows stay in their place and the crayon does a fine job. It is my quick and easy fix for those days when I do not have much time.

3. Sephora Waterproof Blush 

I am in love with this product and this has lasted me for more than a year now. The pigmentation is super….. i am using “Such a peach” color. This is a spray, yes and it feel super cool on the skin. Just spray a bit on your cheek and blend it with your finger and I get rosy cheeks. Love, love, love it…. This is from their airbrush spray collection and it is awe-mazing! Also, always shake the bottle before spraying it and keep it a bit away from your cheek.

4. L’oreal Voluminous Original Mascara

I love mascaras, and I bet if anyone loves makeup they gotta love mascara. I love this one. This lengthens and gives a boost of volume to my lashes. And yes, comes with thin, long wand that I like… try this, if you haven’t yet!

4. Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream

I love most of the shades that come in this…but most of all I like SMLC 08. It is a cute fuschia pinkish shade with a coral -like undertone on it. The consistency just glides on to my lips and dries in feew seconds. The formula is not super matte like its name, but little matte. Just right to give a nourishment to my lips and at the same time to stay in the lines.

So these are the products that I cannot live without, what are yours???? Would love to check them out….

How to use dry mascara


To understand the agony of every woman when they try to scrape out the maximum from their mascara wand; is my duty. What I mean to say is that I got you covered on this.

Having a huge stack of mascaras is not just a mere dream but has moved to reality. I have personally 8-9 different mascaras and I use them everyday. But sometimes, I usually forget to use a mascara for a long time; probably when I found a superbly volumizing one that I cannot stop using. Well, when my mascara dries, I follow these following steps:

  • Step1: I take up any lens solution present in the market and put 3-4 drops of the solution in the bottle of dry mascara.
  • Step 2:  Put the mascara wand inside the bottle, close up the bottle and shake the bottle in the palm of your hands. (Do not shake the bottle in upward-downward position)
  • Step 3: Shake for 1 minute.
  • Step 4: Open the bottle and run the wand on your hand. Check to see if your solution is black. If it is clumpy, repeat the steps 1-2-3 till you get good consistency.

Below is the Video tutorial to show you the steps.
