My philosophy on makeup is easy breezy beautiful cover girl…no really, I like a natural glow and I like makeup to define my features. Like the fact that I have no eyebrows, yes I would like 2! I like to define my eyes since they are small (insert Asian jokes here) and to have beautiful and glowy skin. I don’t want to look like a drag queen thank you very much. It took me a couple of years to get it right but I think I’ve nailed it down. I’ve tried a lot of different products and the ones I use now really work well with my skin and are reasonably priced. Sorry but I’m not spending $60 on foundation! For a night time look, I just use a darker eye shadow and keep everything else the same. It took me a lot of courage to show you pictures of myself without makeup so here goes…

I’m a confessed bronzilla. I love bronzer and I’ve been using this MAC bronzer since I was 18 years old. I’ve learned that less is more so I brush it on my forehead and nose, basically where I think the sun would hit my face.
I do love a cat eye. I start from the inside corner of my eye (closer to nose) and move towards the end. I pull the opposite corner of my eye straight so I can make a straight line. When I get to the end of my eye, I let go and make a little curl at the end. I love this aqua liner because it’s waterproof and doesn’t smudge.
Finally, I use MAC Sheen Supreme Lipglass in Moon Beach for my lips.
