No foundation, no worries!

I understand how it feels like whenever you run out of your favourite foundation, there's nothing left but a concealer and moisturizer left in a corner of the dressing table. You should be lucky because these two products can actually be used as emergency foundation! It happens to me a lot, whenever my foundation has ran out and I need some coverage on my skin, I would mix my liquid concealer and moisturizer together for application.

You will need:
  1. Any liquid or cream concealers of your choice.
    You can mix two different shades of the concealers in order to suit your skin colour.
  2. Facial moisturizer. 
  3. Foundation brush or puff.
Squeeze two pea size of concealers and a 20-50 cents size of your moisturizer. The ratio of the concealers and moisturizer can be 1 : 3 or 4.
Mix them well together and woalah! You have your own version of 'foundation'.

Not everyone like the foundation because it can feel heavy on our skin. However, concealer can be used as foundation because it has the coverage consistency and it helps to conceal wrinkles, redness and etc. Moisturizer helps to blend the concealers smoothly for a better application. My advice is that you can adjust the amount of these products that suit your skin. You may add more concealer for better coverage or vice versa. 

I like this trick because it's simple and effective. It's quite similar to tinted moisturizer and it's suitable for classes and errands. I dislike application foundation for classes because my look may be look heavy and slightly OTT for simple 1 hour class, this trick can refresh my look and not overwhelmed. 


For my eyes, I used:
SILKYGIRL Funky Eyelights Pencil in Ocean Blue
SILKYGIRL Precision Sharp Eyeliner in Black

For my face, I used:
Shiseido The Skin Care Moisturizer
ZA Perfect Fit Concealer in 02
SILKYGIRL Pure Fresh Oil-Control 2-Way Foundation in 02

For my lips, I used:
Love & Beauty by Forever 21 Sparking Lip Gloss in Fiery Red

How to Be a Budget Savvy?

For the first time, you might have to leave your sweet lovely nest to pursue your studies in college or university. We all know that living on a budget is not like living in a sweet melted chocolate pot. But there are several ways to have fun without being worried over financial problems!



1. Getting involved in pre-loved goodies community
Instead of throwing out your old clothes, why not sell them to others? It is not only help you to generate some pocket money but also to reduce waste on earth! Friendfashion Malaysia offers a site where members can swap, sell and giveaway their clothes as they do not wear anymore. Besides, you can always get some pretty amazing clothes from pre-loved websites or blogs. Your wallet will be thanking you!

2. Swap your pretty clothes
Get around with your friends and start swapping! Make a cozy ambience of girls night with some good ol smoothies and tell your friends to bring their own clothes for swapping session. Who knows, you might get that sexy dress you've been eyeing for! Just don't forget to swap old crappy clothes and your favourite cocktail dress!

3. Mark on your calender, it's sales!
Yes ladies, don't we love to see sales tag around the malls? Hitting to the sales or bargain racks would help you to pick up some adorable clothes with the fraction of the normal price. But beware of over loading your items, it doesn't benefit your financial but instead, increasing your financial problems. So remember, pick something that is worth to you. For me, I would go for blazers and cardigans to jeans because it will be in trends for eternal years! Just remember, choose wisely!

4. Double up your cotton pad
Having budget doesn't mean that you should stop loving your skin! If you use cotton balls to apply toner, you really have to stop. Cotton balls have the tendency to soak up the excess product and doesn't give you a good result. Switch to facial cotton pads for better application. Instead using two plies of facial cottons pads, why not cut them into half? It will definitely help to save your money and double up in your investment.

5. Do It Yourself
Tired of looking your old looking shorts? It's time to pimp it up! With some creativity you can definitely create something unique with a hint of your very own personality! Get some inspirations from PS I Made This and also my favourite DIY guru from Beauty Splurge on Youtube. Be inspired and save Mother Earth (obviously!)
