Beauty Quickie: Sunday Riley On A Wednesday

There are mornings when I just enjoy a Nespresso coffee with a dash of light makeup. It’s a simple lunch and stay-at-home kind of day.

♦ Sunday Riley Effortless Breathable Tinted Primer – I normally use this as a tinted moisturiser on its own or topped with a powder or a light layer of cushion foundation. It works well as a primer and helps my makeup last longer too.

♦ Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre in Claire – I’ve had this HUGE tub for a really long time and it’s still going. It has a soft focus matte finish and helps reduce some shine. Believe it or not, I’ve decanted quite a bit out for a friend before but there’s still so much product left. It may be pricey but so worth it because one tub will probably last me a lifetime.

♦ Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy – My favorite Tarte blush! It’s coral-pink and looks so sweet. I use very little and just lightly tap on the apples of my cheeks because my face tends to get red naturally so I don’t want anything that will end up looking muddy. It’s moderately pigmented and blendable.

♦ Catrice Shine Lipgloss – This is an affordable drugstore gloss and I even got it on sale. This one has a slight pinky-brown tint but it’s quite nude and clear on my lips. I like using this on top of lipsticks too.

♦ Yojiya Blush Brush – I bought this brush a very long time ago when I first visited Kyoto. I love using it and the hairs are soft. It’s also good for travel because it’s relatively small and compact.

♦ Lunasol Powder Brush – My favorite powder brush of all time. I use it with everything… compact, loose, finishing, highlight powders, it works with all! The hairs are dense yet super soft. By the way, is Lunasol still available in Malaysia? I just found out Lunasol has pulled out of Malaysia and it’s sad because they’ve produced a few of my favorite eyeshadows and brushes in the past.

♦ Nespresso coffee with Aeroccino foamed milk – Both machines are pretty old but they still make a good cuppa.


How do you normally take your morning coffee? What new or old beauty favorites have you been enjoying lately?
