Scan: Stuff on my desk

Haven’t done one of these in a while:

Was cleaning my pig-sty of a desk and came across so much old ticket stubs, a bajillion instant photos, and so much makeup. From top left, rotating clockwise: photo taken on the day of the USA vs. Brazil friendly, lipstick, mascara, cellphone adhesive thingies that cost AN ARM AND A LEG, eyeliner, expense book (that I kept up with for like a month and then stopped), ticket stub from soccer game. #1, beauty things

Someone asked me on formspring:

whats your skin care/make up routine?what products do you use?

I’m not usually a big skincare or makeup person, because my policy has always been, if you live right and eat right, it’s better to keep those things to a minimum lest you develop a dependency for them at a young age. But in the last couple of months I’ve started being a more frequent user of both. I’m pretty big on eyeshadow though, my one weakness :(

On the days I use shadow, I stick to MAC’s Relaxing, Naked Lunch, All That Glitters, and Smashbox’s Smokebox. MAC’s Relaxing is my favorite eyeshadow of all time but I found out that it’s a limited edition color and I haven’t been able to find a similar shadow from MAC or other labels :(

Also a fan of blush. I’ve got a golden complexion, so peachy stuff works best for me. Pictured above are NARS’ Orgasm and MAC’s Apripeach. On days I just want a little color, I use Bare Mineral’s’ Golden Gate.

I went through a phase in high school where I bought a lot of makeup but never used it because I just didn’t know how to. Now I’m slowing buying one or two pieces at a time and actually contemplating when I will use it to maximize the product’s effectiveness. Currently into buying lip stuff. Above L to R: Fresh’s Sugar tinted lip balm, NARs’ Falbala, and Benefit’s Flirt Alert.

Fail safe lip stuff. I like the Burt Bee’s and Ecolips balms because they’re minty. Nivea’s balm is really saturated with color. It actually could work fine as a lipstick.

Stuff I bought today: NARS bronzer in Laguna, Bare Minerals’ powder, powder/bronzer brush, brush cleanser.

I love people’s spaces.

All in all, twas a good day

Talk about differing palates in one meal, eh?

This issue of Vogue Girl was pretty bad. The ad pages, on the ad pages! Will be scanning this issue some time soon.

Cleaning out my closet (remember that Eminem song?)

I am the worst caretaker of my bags :\ I’m working on doing a complete reorganization of my room — hopefully I get rid of enough so that I can properly store away my books (so many lying around) and create some kind of space for my shoes + bags.
