Here are the first 7 makeup stuff I took out of the bag:
1 – James Cooper Jazzy Collection Cream Compact Foundation in CF-03
I use this more as a concealer than a foundation. I seldom put on a full face of foundation and often just put on concealer on my dark circles and blemishes to make my skin look more even-toned.
2 – Ever Bilena Mousse Eyeshadow in Amber
This is the only eyeshadow I own if I don’t count in2it’s eyebrow palette. I use this to foil my eyeshadow at times when I want to look like I did a lot of effort doing my makeup.
3 – Ever Bilena Waterproof Mascara
Don’t you just love it when you find something good and cheap? This mascara is both. I don’t use the brush that much because I’m not skilled enough for that. What I do is transfer the mascara on a lash comb before I apply it on my lashes. And guess what, no clumps!
4 – Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Pencil in No. 5 (Light Gray)
I recommend this for people like me who are incapable of doing short light strokes. If you’re heavy-handed like me, this is for you.
5 – In2It Eyebrow Kit
I bought this when I was looking for a waterproof, matte, neutral eyeshadow palette to practice on. It’s either I don’t know where to look or there’s a shimmer craze going on. I found this and bought it as soon as I saw it. It does a good job filling in the eyebrows. As an eyeshadow, it’s a little difficult to blend but it’s workable.
6 – Alba Botanica Terra Tints in Bloom
I’m not much of a makeup person and this is 1 of the 4 lip products I have. It’s a basic lip balm that gives a subtle pink tint on the lips.
7 – Shiseido SPF 36 Sun Stick in Ochre
My face is an oil mine. Because of that, I prefer multi-purpose products. I love this because it has one of the highest SPFs I’ve seen in a foundation and it functions well as a face base.
I might be able to wrap up Phase 1 before the end of my deadline (2 months). This is exciting because I can start earlier with Phase 2 — de-stashing makeup tools, accessories, and clothes.
