Face of the Day Green Smokey


Welcome to 2020 dolls!!! I hope you are having a great day today. I slept in today because I wasn’t feeling the best. I’m feeling a bit better but still have low spoons today.

I chose to use the same eyeshadow palette I used yesterday as well as the same foundation. So let’s get started…..

BASE: I primed my face using Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer ($45 at Ulta). I color corrected using Tarte CC Undereye Corrector ($25 at Ulta) in the color Light-Medium. I concealed using BH Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer ($6 on their website) in the color #111. I chose to use my Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation ($43 on their website and at Sephora) in the color Y235. I set my undereyes with the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder ($45 on the Beautylish website) in the color 2 Medium and then set the rest of my face using Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) in the color Translucent. I warmed up my face and nose with BH Cosmetics Brilliance Bronzer ($10 on their website) in the color Bronze Babe.


EYES: I primed my eyes using MAC Paint Pot ($22 at Ulta and MAC) in Soft Ochre . I set the prime with my Chrlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder ($45 on the Beautylish website) in the color 2 Medium. I used the ELF The New Classics Eyeshadow Palette ($14 on their website) and started with Uptown (a light camel tan matte) as my 1st transition shade.  I then used Charmer (a grey toned dusty mauve matte) as my 2nd transition shade. I used Earth (a deep grey toned brown matte) to deepen the crease and for the outer v. On my mobile lids I used a slight bit of Earth on the outer 1/3 and then Gilded (a peridot green shimmer) on the first 2/3. I used Opulent (an olive green with gold shift shimmer) on the middle 1/3 to blend Earth and Gilded together. On the bottom lash line I used Darling (an orange toned tan matte) and then deepened the lash line with Earth. I lined the waterlines with BH Cosmetics Power Pencil ($8 on their website) in Beige. I did my brows with Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil ($24 on their website) and Gimme Brow ($24 on their website) in the color 4.5 and then cut the brow line with BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side. I set my brow bone with Liberatus (a cream white matte) from the Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette ($48 at Sephora). For mascara I stuck with the Benefit Roller Lash ($25 on their website) in the color Black.


CHEEKS and LIPS: For blush today I chose NARS blush ($30 at Ulta and Sephora) in Dolce Vita (a pink coral satin). I highlighted the tops of my cheek bones, nose, between my brows and Cupid’s Bow with MAC Mineralize SkinFinish ($36 at Ulta and MAC) in the color Soft & Gentle (a peachy champagne). On my lips today I have Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat ($22 on the Beautylish website) in the color Pillow Talk (a pink nude) and filled my lips in with Jouer High Pigment Lip Gloss ($17 on their website) in the color Sloane (a mid-toned coral cream).


Final Thoughts….

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer: B                                                                          You get 1 fluid ounce of product in the full sized. It’s billed as a pore filling primer. I have only used this primer a handful of times but it doesn’t fill in pores at all. It’s a velvet feeling primer that smooths the skin…. it just doesn’t fill in the pores what so ever. My foundation lasts pretty well with this primer so I will continue to use it, however I hate the smell and it doesn’t help the pores so I will not be repurchasing this primer.

BH Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer: A-                                                                             This concealer comes in 21 shades. You get .35 fluid ounces of product. I like this concealer a lot but I need a shade lighter for under my eyes it’s the perfect skin color I just prefer a lighter shade for under my eyes. It doesn’t crease or look cakey and it doesn’t accentuate my dry areas.

BH Cosmetics Brilliance Bronzer: B+                                                                                           You get .35 ounces of product. I like this bronzer, it’s a satin finished bronzer. It is a tad too orange based so you do have to go in with a light hand so as to not end up looking like an Umpa Lumpa . This bronzer buffs in so well. It’s never patchy or chalky. I definitely will repurchase this bronzer once I hit pan.

NARS Blush: A-                                                                                                                             Comes in 35 shades and you get .16 ounces of product. I love the blush I have, I own 2 Orgasm and Dolce Vita. They buff into the cheeks perfectly and without getting patchy. A little goes a long way so I wont need to repurchase for a long time, however I am thinking of picking up a few more shades.

MAC Mineralize SkinFinish: A                                                                                                           It comes in 5 shades, I own 2. You get .35 ounces of product. This highlighter is so powerful that you only need the slightest tap of product. I give it an A only because it does have glitter in it… once you use a finishing spray the glitter melts in but I have several highlighters without glitter in them so I rate the ones with glitter lower on the scale.

Jouer High Pigment Lip Gloss: A-                                                                                                      It comes in 14 shades. You get .21 fluid ounces of product. This is a great gloss. It doesn’t get sticky. It doesn’t feather or transfer off the lip…. it doesn’t dry down, it remains wet. It’s not the longest lasting gloss but it does wear down nicely. I own 3 shades… I don’t know if I will repurchase the colors I have once I’ve used them up, but I am looking forward to purchasing other colors.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Hope your day is a good one and as always remember to save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
