My daily make-up routine

June 25, 2012 in Commercial Break

In my last post on Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Cream it seems like quite a few of you are using it already and find it good!! :D

I have been using it diligently for about a month now and the thing i like about it the most is that it really helps make my daily make up so much easier!

For 3 weeks in Japan every single day i have to put on make up (due to work or simply due to paisehness because every girl in Japan makes effort to look good!) and it’s extra difficult because of the dry weather in Japan compared to Malaysia. My make up cracks due to to fine lines around the eyes and laugh lines T___T.

 

And here’s a little tip from me for awesome make up that lasts a whole day!!

First thing in the morning i use this thing called the Morning Mask (only sold in Japan i think), that’s equivalent to face toner/lotion except that it’s a sheet and you just cover it on your face for 10 seconds.

And then you can feel that your skin is super moist!!!

Then after that i apply a very thin layer of Olay Regenerist to smooth out the fine lines on face.

And then comes the self-invented new make-up recipe lol.

Well normally i will apply foundation straight on my face and i noticed that it tends to instantly dry up and sometimes even accentuate fine lines.

 

So i squeeze half a pump of Olay Regenerist and then one pump of liquid foundation onto the back of my hand.

 

And then mix it up with an applicator sponge.

Seriously i’ve been doing that every time i do my make up, and this combination makes my make up smooth and crack-free for one whole day!!

After only foundation.

I feel that i can apply even lighter make up now and still look good :D

I hardly take very close up picture nowadays but now i feel more confident to do it ^^

And then after a whole day out, remember to cleanse your face thoroughly! I will apply Olay Regenerist again before i sleep to smooooooth all the wrinkle out.

 

If you don’t mind trying, you can go to the nearest drugstore and get Olay Regenerist and then leave a comment here to tell me if it works!!

Share with me your skincare routine so we can learn from each others!! :D

  1. A little off topic but I love your nails! :grin:

  2. Holy cow! I had the first comment? That’s never happened before. So exciting! Haha.

  3. hi cheesie! i was waiting for ur new post. :razz:
    i wonder, is it ok for early-twenties to use this product??

  4. Try using a moisture based bb cream! I find that it really helps to prevent dryness and my skin usually glows. The downside of it is that such BB creams usually have medium to light coverage and it can look dewy(if ur lucky) or like orang minyak by the end of the day especially if your skin is medium-very oily. If you are worried about that put a sheet of tissue on ur face and dab lightly to absorb excess moisture from the formula. Avoid using loose powder during this period of time when the weather is dry because it will make your makeup cakey!

  5. I do something similar — i use moisturizer like a gel base and it makes it last all day and not give weird dry patches. SO nice la

    Love your makeup and nails :)

  6. i read from some skincare websites that it is not good to mix moisturizer with foundation because foundation is just supposed to sit on top of your skin while moisturizer has ingredients that penetrate the skin.

    I personally feel that mixing is great too though haha i’m not sure who to believe :P

    • Honey Bunny says:

      Yeah, that’s probably true, ’cause foundation isn’t very good for your skin so u don’t want it to penetrate the skin, while it’s the opposite with moisturizer. So it’s probably better to just let the foundation sit on top and dry and crackle… T____T

      This looks so much nicer though! Your face looks perfect Cheesie!! ;O;
      And I love your natural eye color, dark eyes are so cute, and tend to look bigger! ^^
      My eyes are dark grey/blue, similar to your lenses actually, but not so marmored. :)

      Huuugs~!

  7. mMmM interesting! makes me want to try!

  9. Oh I usually put moisturizer and then foundation. Lately I never put foundation on though because it makes me break out a little more then in I don’t. I use MAC pressed powder and that’s it! It doesn’t hide my dark circles as much so I put on foundation on weekends or days I know I’ll be out and about a lot so I look good lol. You should try to give your skin a break too!! Because your skin is already very nice. :) Did that sound creepy? lol

  10. oh dear, cheesie, you looks so tired! :( sleep more <3

  11. You can also mix foundation with either primer or serums :D

  12. totally agree with you that japan’s weather is so dry. i live in usa and still my skincare totally won’t work in japan…. i had to purchased another set of stuffs while in japan TT__TT

    and i usually won’t put on full make-up (foundation, eyemake up and all) but the japanese babes r so perfect in terms of their hair and make up, gives me pressure to look good too haha~~ ^^ but i still don’t get how they can look so perfect even later in the day? do they constantly reapply their make up?? and if so why their make up won’t crack?? :S

  13. every day, i just use foundation (and of course powder) mascara, and blush. i use very light make up so i look almost the same with or without it. the only difference is that my skin looks beautiful with it and my eyes look more beautiful, too.

  14. btw, i moisturize first and use a moisturizing foundation and mineral powder and it never cracks and keeps my skin moisturized a very lot

  15. My best skincare routine: detox diet with lots of fresh veggies, veggie juice and smoothies and fruits, nuts, nut milk… Ever since I stopped eating dairy, meat, eggs and other animal products I feel I got a brand new skin. And as a Mediterranean girl, my best advice: remove your makeup with extravirgin olive oil, use it as a face/hair mask too… and you’ll glow!

    After that, there is no need for foundation ;) I apply some blush, eyeliner and mascara and I’m good to go!

  16. Ohh the morning masks sound awesome~
    What brand are they ?

  17. I make sure i wash my make up off everynight. I use face mask about 3-4 times a week either exfoliate or hydrating mask.

Leave me a cheese
