make-up up up

Few weeks ago someone asked me to do "what's in my make-up bag" or "everyday make-up routine" or however you would like to call it, so I thought perhaps it's time to finally do it.

I keep my brushes, which are mostly from eco tools, in this clear jar I filled with colored salt ( I just took colored chalk and stirred the salt with it to color it ).
I always start with white eye pencil on my waterline and sometimes I tightline the lashes with the black one. After that, I use one of 87345 other concealers I need for my darkdark eye circles, my favorite is maybelline eraser eye concealer and I put garnier roll-on under it ( I forgot to take photo of it, sry ). For my face, I use maybelline fit me concealer or catrice camouflage, depends if I'm feeling that I need more or less coverage. I set it all with manhattan compact powder, I mainly focus on my T-zone to reduce getting oily throughout the day.
If I could use only one product that will probably be something for my eyebrows since eyebrows are huge part of make-up routine for me. I tried all kinds of different eyebrow pencils and the essence one still works the best for me. After that, I go over them with catrice spoolie and I also just discovered their eyebrow filler that is great for quick filling-up those frames to your face ;)
When I use eyeshadow ( which is only when I go out or there's a special occasion ), I first use essence eyeshadow base and then some of the lovely eyeshadows I own. I have few palettes and mono eyeshadows but I mainly focus on golden-champagne-shimmery ones. On the photos are just few of my favorites and this palette is actually the oldest palette I own and after all the others I tried, it's still my favorite. It was limited edition from manhattan year or 2 ago. 
I don't use eyeliner, but I use these essence long lasting eye pencils instead, I love having them as a pop of color on my face haha and I also sometimes use black eyeshadow with an angled brush in place of an eyeliner. 
Moreover, I always have to curl my lashes before I use mascara - doing that just gives me so much joy I honestly have no idea why. Currently, I'm using this essence mascara. I used it few years ago and I remembered it was really good for the price you pay, but I kinda just went and got another one just to try some new ones. I used l'oreal million lashes, maybelline colossal, one by one and rocket mascara and I can say this one can easily compare to all of them. 
The blush I'm using at the moment is by bourjois, but I change that quite often since blushes are my weakness. 
I can't go a day without chopstick, I absolutely love them - all kinds of them. The one in the middle is from burt's bees. If I want some color on my lips I use maybelline popstick in pink lollipop or color whisper in coral ambition, but that rarely happens because I don't really like having anything else on my lips than lipbalm.

Oookay, I can't remember the last time I wrote post longer than 3 sentences what is actually really bad. What do you think, should I start actually writting more here? I think I would quite enjoy that.

Have a great week! ( with this song )
