A curated beauty reco list

Ordinary coverage foundation

Don't be fooled by the name! It's a lightweight foundation which has light to medium coverage. It has a texture of a skin tint, but a coverage of a foundation. I am in the shade 1.1 N.

Etude house double lasting serum foundation

This serum foundation stays well on my skin even if I am oily. Most importantly, it doesn't make me shiny throughout the day, but makes my skin look really healthy. Being a serum foundation, its texture is really light on the skin.

NYX soft matte lip creams

This is a hall of famer! I've repurchased this countless times which proves how much I love this. It's mousse-y, lightweight and the shade range is top notch. I love Abu Dhabi, London and Beijing.

Blk creamy all-over paint

I love the shades from this line especially Daffodil and Golden Hour which are both very neutral midtone nudes perfect for any skintone!

Revlon glass shine lipsticks

Saying this is my favorite lipstick ever is an understatement! It's a lipstick while feeling like a lip mask—hydrating and nourishing on the lips. Plus, how can you not resist the colors? I recommend: Glossed Up Rose, Fire and Ice, Rum Raisin, Glaring Coral and Beaming Strawberry for that baby pink pout.

Romand juicy lasting tints

A hydrating tint that gives you that balm-y sheen. I love this! Even if it doesn't dry down, once it settles on the lips, it leaves that sheen that makes the lips look healthy. Plus, it stains like a dream so it lasts well!

Revlon superlustrous crème lipstick

I used to not love the formula, but now I'm a convert! The shades are pigmented and even if it transfers, the color adheres well on the lips and does not cause bleeding. It is one of the best cream lipsticks I've tried and I'm hooked. My favorite shades are: Rose Velvet, Cherries in the Snow and Unapologetic.

Blk all day matte lipstick

This is in the shade I Do from her Bridal Collection. It is a vivid pink shade that makes you look fresh and bright.

Nyx slim lip pencil

This is a longlasting lip pencil which helps the lipstick stay longer. I love the shade Nude Beige. The shade Peekaboo Neutral is also a dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillowtalk.

Essence soft contouring lip liner

I love the shade Big Proposal—a CT Lip Cheat in Pillowtalk dupe!

Nichido professional lip pencil

This shade in Rosette is a pretty midtone rose color. The texture is quite similar to the NYX one. Surprisingly, the longevity of this one is also great even after eating!


Looking for Glossier Boy Brow dupe? Here is it! I use the shade Clear and this duo not only helps my brow hairs to grow, but it also helps keep them in place all day!


I love this shade in Baked—a perfect light shading shade for Fair to Light skin. As someone who doesn't like bronzing, this shading shade for slight contouring is my favorite.

Issy&Co Cream Blush

A cream blush that stays put throughout the day! It's a multi-use product for eyes, cheeks and lips. I love the shade Good Girl, but all the shades available are perfect for that naturally-flushed look.

The Saem Single Blusher

My top picks are: BR03—my favorite shading shade ever!; and PK07—a light nude blush. Honestly, all colors available from this line are great!

Ever bilena bloom blush

If you're looking for an affordable yet high quality blush, this one is for you! It's pigmented, smooth and lasts the whole day. Tbh, all shades are worth it to buy!

Blk powder blush

I love the shade Flushed—a dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic blush in Pillowtalk. It's a nude-y rose color which has slight gold shimmers that gives a sultry glow to the skin.

Max factor creme puff blush

This satin blush is one of my favorites as it gives that lit from within glow which I truly love! My top picks are the shades: Nude Mauve and Seductive Pink.


The mini quad in the shade called "French Rose Tea Pot" is a perfect dupe to the ever famous Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in Pillowtalk. Cop that pinky nude look on the eyes with this one!


This is my favorite ELF eyeshadow palette and it is a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette! I love the purply cool undertone to it with a rosier hue. This is a great startup palette if you're just getting into cool tones.

3ce multi-eye palette

This eyeshadow palette is pigmented with various textures so you will never get bored of it. Create stunning and lux eyelooks with this compact palette. I assure you, you will never regret the quality, especially the topper shades. My choices are: Overtake, Plot Twist and Beach Muse.

Issy&co eyeliner duo

I'm not an eyeliner expert, but this one made my life so easy! No to floppy liner looks and yes to symmetry! Love this a ton, plus it comes in Black and Brown shades.
