By recently, I mean the past 2 weeks or so, when I am in a little rush in the morning, and I just want to be quick. And I hate to admit, but I am on a little BB cream kick... testing out the various ones in my stash, and just slapping them on for work. I realise for them to last, and look flawless enough, I personally prefer to use a powder foundation, instead of a loose powder. I won't even apply liquid foundation over, because that somehow feels 'thick'.
And I am beginning to like this Freshel Moist Lift W cream, it is so close to my skintone, there is no grey tone, and nothing too warm nor beigy. It is also the BB cream that looks the most natural, like a foundation on my skin.
By setting it with a powder foundation, my base makeup lasts a good 8 hours everyday. I need to blot every 4 - 5 hours though.

And after an evening of dinner & drinks by the beach [all outdoors, no air con] and I didn't have my blotters with me, so you are looking at maybe 6 hours later -- yes, my T-zone is starting to looking shiny, but other than that, I am quite happy with the overall effects of this 'new' base combination.
Yup I know the lighting is funky, apologies!
I am soooo tired this past week. Everyday is so packed to the brim both at work and everywhere else, I havent started packing at all, though I have been doing 'mental' packing. And I have been trying to jog 5km at least 4 times a week - which I managed to last week. I feel super bloated too...might be a monthly thing? But one thing I know, I am really looking forward to this much needed break/ getaway, and also looking forward to spending time with my girl cronies, do lots of sight-seeing and also check out lots of shopping!
I have a couple of entries I want to put up, have the pictures and all, but just can't get to actually doing the thinking and writing about yet... mainly an overview of BB creams in my stash, how I use bronzer to warm up my skintone without looking crazy, and maybe a what's in my air-travel makeup/skincare bag type of entry. And I have not done the 'how much is my face worth' tag entry which I saw on Hazel's blog [thinking of a 'logical' way to do the tag]...
Oh well. It's late, I should get to zzzzz for 2 more [gruelling] days of work. I think I miss entries like these, where I am semi-rambling about nothing much in general, you know? Sometimes it does not always have to be all about oh this product, and that product, blah blah blah.... :)
