My Full Coverage Simple Make-Up Tutorial

My simple make-up routine

For someone who has been acne-prone her whole life, I’ve been super extra careful with the skincare and beauty products I use on my skin. My skintype is a combination of an oily t-zone and semi-dry cheek area so finding the right products can be kind of tricky. In this post, I’m sharing with you the usual products I used + new ones I discovered. Enjoy!

BEFORE | Bare-faced, No make-up

This is my skin – as bare as it can be. No make-up and you’ll see noticeable acne marks and a sort of reddish skin type. Halp! I need a good foundation that doesn’t cause me to break out!

AFTER | Make-up look perfect for special events, Chinese New Year or Vday!

TA-DAAA! Here’s the final look! Watch the video below to see how I achieved it.
