My current favourite make up combinations: Eyes, Lips, Face.

Make up combinations I have been loving| My current favourite makeup combinations

For the last few days, I have been trying to rotate my makeup. Every month I declutter, I feel uneasy and guilty of throwing away products which I haven't used much. I really feel guilty of wasting the money I could have otherwise saved or may be put to better use.
Hence, rotating makeup is not a bad idea overall I think. Besides, the different textures together often create beautiful colors with interesting finish. Here are few of my favorites.
Pink Lip color products combination
NYX Megashine Lip Gloss Beige and Streetwear Lip Liner Pink Line
I have pulled out my NYX Megashine lip gloss in Beige. Unlike the name, 'Beige' is rather a dull pink which goes very pinkish nude on my skin tone. It looks beautiful. But
in the seasons when I am more tan, it might turn out a bit too natural to show up at all. It works great with heavy eyes though.

 To get a more pink tinge from it, I top it over Streetwear Lipliner in Pink Line. I think this is my 3rd one and I absolutely love the color.

It is slightly on a darker pink side, but the gloss tones down the edge and lightens it up and the effect is a beautiful, extremely shiny, comfortable and long-lasting lipcolor.

 The other lipcolor combination I am loving is  NYX Lipliner in Coffee underneath Beige.

 Coffee is too dark for my liking, Yet, I can't throw it away.

 For my eyes, I can't recall where I got the brown shadow from, but the yellow is Goldmine from Nature's Brilliance by Sue. The brown is a beautiful brown with slight sparkly shimmers and is absolutely gorgeous.

My time-saving pretties
 Goldmine is beautiful, vibrant metallic yellow or gold which lights up the eyes. And, for the outer half, I use the brown. I blend everything with Illamasqua Eyeshadow in Vernau I raved about in my recent post. I would either just use a mascara or line my eyes and finish with a mascara for the natural, yet dressed up eyes. ( Tutorial/EOTD soon).

The other combination is for face. I had received Isadora BB Cream which I loved. But, Tan is too dark on my skin tone. Yet, I have tanned a lot which makes L'Oreal BB Cream difficult to use.

My skin saviors
 L'Oreal BB Cream is quite sweat-proof and lasts almost all day on my oily skin and has SPF 35 PA +++. While Isadora BB Cream is moisturizing and gets absorbed easily. I am mixing the two proportionately and making perfect match. Besides, both are warm which makes the combination even better!
