Hey doll hey!!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. It’s raining here in Florida today and I’m in a world of hurt because of it. I woke up wanting to try for a halo eye look. I’ve never done one and always wanted to try…it didn’t come out perfect but the look is so pretty that I think I might try one again tomorrow to see if I can get it right. Well, let’s jump into this Face of the Day ….
Base: I primed my face using Loreal Infallible Glow-Lock Illuminating Primer ($12.99 at Ulta) and also Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta). I color corrected using Tarte CC Undereye Corrector ($25 at Ulta) in the shade Light/Medium. My foundation today is a combo of 3 pumps BECCA Backlight Priming Filter ($39 at Ulta) and 2 pumps Loreal Infallible Fresh Wear Foundation ($14.99 at Ulta) in the shade 420 True Beige. I concealed my under eyes using Loreal Infallible Full Wear Concealer ($13.49 at Ulta) in the shade 360 Cashmere. I set my full face using Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta) in the shade Translucent. I warmed up my face using NYX Matte Bronzer ($10 at Ulta) in the shade Deep Tan. I went a little to ham on the bronzer today so I had to bake heavily. I baked my jaw line, center of the forehead, sides of the nose and tops of the cheeks using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 on the Beautylish website).
Eyes: I primed my eyes with NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and set that using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 on the Beautylish website). For today’s eye look I used the Revolution Beauty Re-Loaded Basic Mattes Palette ($8 on their website). For my 1st transition shade I used the 5th color of the 1st row ( light orange based tan matte). For my 2nd transition shade I used the 2nd color of the 3rd row (a light mauve terracotta matte), I also took this color all over the mobile lid. To deepen my crease and mobile lid I used the 1st shade of the 3rd row (a deep mauve terracotta matte). I then cut out the middle 1/3 of my mobile lid using more NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer. I then used Revolution Beauty Highlighter Reloaded ($7 at Ulta) in the shade Dare to Divulge (a mid-toned champagne) on the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid layered with Hikari Cream Pigment ($15 on their website) in the shade Honey Dew (a pale icy pink) and then I layered another layer of Revolution Beauty Highlighter Reloaded in the shade Dare to Divulge. I then created a drop shadow on the lower lash line using what was left on the brushes I used on my upper lids. I lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop Creme Gel Color ($7 on their website) in the shade Exit (a pure white). I then lined high up on the lower lash line using the 4th color on the 3rd row (a deep true brown matte). I highlighted my inner corners using Hikari Cream Pigment ($15 on their website) in the shade Fairy Tale (an icy white). I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in clear and filled in the brows using Loreal Brow Stylist Definer ($8.99 at Ulta) in the shade Dark Brunette. I carved out my brow line using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and set that using the 1st shade of the 1st row (a bright cream matte). I put on a pair of KoKo Lashes ($7.99 on the Lady Moss website) in the style Queen B. I lined the inner corner of my upper lash line using Physician’s Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum ($11.49 at Ulta) in the shade Ultra Black and then set that using the 5th shade of the 3rd row (a dusty black matte). I primed my lower lashes using Loreal Voluminous Primer ($10.99 at Ulta) and then put on 2 coats of Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($8.99 at Ulta) on both the upper and lower lashes.
Cheeks and Lips: My blush today is Milani Rose Powder Blush ($8.99 on their website) in the shade 08 Tea Rose (light nude peach matte). I highlighted the tops of the cheeks, center of my chin, Cupid’s bow, bridge of the nose, and center of my forehead using Revolution Beauty Highlighter Reloaded ($7 at Ulta) in the shade Dare to Divulge (a mid-toned champagne). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($7 on their webstie) in the shade Lumiere (dusty mauve pink) and filled in the lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade Little Things (mid-tone mauve pink creme).
Loreal Infallible Glow-Lock Illuminating Primer: A+ This is a pretty good primer. It gives a great glow to the face without there being any shimmer on the face. Foundation goes on over this primer so smoothly. It leaves the face dewy looking without looking greasy and without feeling like a disco ball. I will definitely be using this a ton more and will repurchase when I’ve finished it up.
Revolution Beauty Re-Loaded Basic Mattes Palette: A+++!!! This is an amazing neutrals palette. It’s compact so it’s great to travel with. There are enough transition, crease, and outer v shades that you can get multiple looks without getting bored. There was a small amount of kick back in the pans and almost no fallout on the face. This one is a definite gem.
ColourPop Creme Gel Color in the Shade Exit: B- This color is the hardest thing to work with. I wish they would make Honey Dude in a Creme Gel Color too that would be the best thing ever!! This white is super pigmented but skips when you apply it on the waterline. It also cracks. It’s super thick, and it stinks! I mean like clown makeup stink. I’ll use this again but I just have to find the way to make it work for me.
Well, that’s all for now dolls. I hope you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits. I hope, for those of you who have spoonie illnesses, that you are having low pain days and high energy days. Remember dolls, save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
