When a friend of mine saw my make up collection she asked me: “if you were to choose 5 items that is essential for you everyday, what would it be?”

I begged a little. Can you give me 10? She goes: No. Just 5 make up that you need. Everyday.

It took me a long time to choose just 5. I had to pare it down to the basic.

Here it is:

(According to my need of the product)

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil & Tarte The Brow Architect

I kinda cheated here. It’s either one of these 2. The no. 1 product that is important to me everyday when I go out is eyebrow pencil. I don’t have eyebrows anymore (my eyebrows are not totally kalbo I’m just exaggerating) and I need this for me to look human again. Otherwise I look like an alien.

Chanel Le Blanc Fresh Glow Brightening Loose Powder

I chose this as the second important product because this can do a lot of things. First, it brightens my face. Second, it adds color to my face (this powder is light pink), you look like you’re blushing. Third, it gives you glow therefore it highlights your face lightly. In short this product is 3 in 1. Am I also cheating here?

Chanel Inimitable Extréme Mascara

I chose this mascara among all of my mascaras because this is lengthening and gives my lashes a lot of volume. Wearing mascara does a lot to your total look.

Chanel Éclat Lumiére

For the fourth product I chose a concealer. Altho’ this one is highlighter pen but it also conceals. I have lots of pigmentation and I need concealer to cover them.

Chanel Rouge Coco Baume

I have very dry lips. And this Chanel Coco Baume is the best lip balm I have ever tried.

There you are. My top 5 everyday make up essentials.

  1. Eyebrow pencil
  2. Loose powder
  3. Mascara
  4. Concealer
  5. Lip Balm

It was very difficult to choose! It’s like choosing which of your kids is your favorite.


p.s. choosing Chanel products is not intentional but rather coincidental.
