Complexion Routine: The Extra Mile

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a photo on my Instagram showing my makeup that I did to attend one of my high school friends’ wedding. I took this occasion as a challenge because I had PMS and my skin was breaking out pretty bad. Not just that, my skin was really dehydrated and there were quite a few of dry patches because I still had a flu back then. Bottom line, my skin wasn’t its usual self.

That day, I needed to look presentable (more than usual), polished without looking like I piled on a lot on my face; I never liked that look and I’m not about to start now. In this post, I will cover a lot of things, not just list of products, but also details on why I like them and how I use them. This way, I hope that I also can share my complexion makeup routine.

That being said, this is going to be a LONG post. Brace yourself. Grab a popcorn.

Without further adieu, here’s what I did and use on my complexion:

DiorShow Liner Waterproof Plum – Happy Accident

Once upon a time, I was waiting for a DiorShow Art Pen in Cruise Blue to come into my mail. I was really excited when I got my package. However, half-opening the package, I knew something wasn’t right. My guess was true, I was sent a wrong item. I was a little bit disappointed but that disappeared quickly because the mistakenly-sent item was actually on my list-to-get after the blue liner. So, is it a yay? YAY, indeed.

Meet my current favorite liner, DiorShow Liner Waterproof Plum/Prune.
