Hey doll hey! How is your day/night going? I hope you are well and that you are having am amazing day/night. Today I am not feeling very well. I hurt heaps and I didn’t sleep well do to pain. I feel like I fell off a 10 story building. So I decided to go with my go to spoonie day makeup look. So let’s jump into the Face of the Day ….
Base: I primed my face using Physicians Formula Softlight Blurring Primer ($14.39 at Walgreens and $14.95 on their website). I color corrected using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 at Target) in the shade Brightening Peach. For foundation today I used a combo of 3 dropper fulls of Catrice Cosmetics Light Correcting Serum Primer ($10.99 at Ulta) in the shade Candlelight and 2 pumps Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer ($9.99 at Ulta) in the shade 03 Light Beige. I concealed my under eyes using AOA Studio Liquid PAW PAW Concealer ($1.55 on the Shop Miss A website) in the shade Buff. 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 Malibu Glitz Face Powder ($1 on the Shop Miss A website) in the shade Honey. I lightly baked the center of my forehead using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 on the Beautylish website).
Eyes: I primed the lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard. For today’s look I used the ColourPop Double Entendre Palette ($18 on their website). For my transition shade I used the shade Extra Curricular (burnt orange matte). For my crease and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid shade I used Nip Slip (warm saddle brown matte). I deepened my outer v using a combo of the shades Nip Slip (warm saddle brown matte) and Hard (deep terracotta matte). On my mobile lid I used the shade Draft (rich rose gold metallic) on the inner 2/3 and then I went back in with the shade Keep It PG (champagne gold metallic) on the middle 1/3 to blend the inner and outer shades together. On the lower lash line I created a drop shadow using more of the shade Extra Curricular and then deepened the lower lash line with more of the combo of the shades Nip Slip and Hard. I highlighted the inner corners using a combo of the shade Keep It PG (rich rose gold metallic) and the highlighter I used today. I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in clear and filled in my brows using NYX Micro Brow Pencil ($7 at Ulta) in the shade Espresso. I carved out my brow line using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and then set that using the shade Bluffin’ (pale ivory matte) from the ColourPop Nude Mood Palette ($14 on their website). I lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Creme Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Get Paid (a rose gold metallic). I popped on a pair of Ardell Natural Lash ($3.49 at Ulta) in the style #110. I used Benefit Roller Lash ($25 at Ulta and Sephora) in black on the upper and lower lashes and then lined the inner part of my upper lash line with a matte black eye shadow.
Cheeks and Lips: For blush today I used ELF Primer Infused Blush ($6 on their website) in the shade Always Punchy (a pink coral matte). I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, bridge of the nose, center of the forehead, and Cupid’s bow using Makeup Geek Highlighter (discontinued due to rebranding) in the shade Midnight Sun (a mid-toned golden champagne). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Good & Plenty (deep rose) and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade Ziggie (dark terracotta matte).
Physicians Formula Softlight Blurring Primer: B+ This primer is billed as being a universally flattering soft-focused primer that smooths, absorbs, and protects to deliver an ultra-smooth airbrushed finished. This is not a bad primer, it just doesn’t do anything it claims to do. There is no soft focus, no ultra smooth airbrushed finish… nothing. It works well to hold the foundation longer… and that’s it. I have purchased the illuminating version off Amazon today to see if that one at least gives some glow to the skin… I’ll use this one up but I wont be repurchasing it because I have other primers that do what this one claims to do at a lower price point that I like more.
Catrice Cosmetics Light Correcting Serum Primer: A+++!!!! Oh man, I love this primer so much!! I don’t use it as a primer though… I use it as a mix in medium to my foundations and it makes my foundations look so much more pretty. It works well with most of my foundations. Today it took some time to get it to mix in with the Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer, I think because this is my thickest foundation so it made it a bit tougher to mix together…. but once I did get it mixed this primer took my foundation to another level. I love it so much I just ordered a back up because I’m down to 1/2 a bottle left.
Well that’s all for now dolls. I just placed an order on Ulta’s website and on Profusion Cosmetic’s website so I will be doing another makeup haul post coming soon. Also I purchased 20 of the Paw Paw Super Soft Wonder Blender Sponges ($1.55 each on the Shop Miss A website) to test out to see if they are as good as the Beauty Blender. Also I have been testing out the full eye brush line from Profusion Cosmetics. They are very dirty and need to be washed…. I’m doing my brush cleaning this weekend and once they are dry I will do a review post on the brush line. In the meantime, I hope that you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits. Hopefully I will be feeling better tomorrow… until tomorrow dolls… Remember save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
