Rose Gold Soft Cut Crease Face of the Day

Published February 23, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!! How’s your day going? Great I hope. I woke up early today, couldn’t sleep well because my body hurt so bad…. I guess I over did it whilst I was cleaning yesterday. I decided to play with the new Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Complexion Inspired Eye Shadow Palette ($45 at Ulta), while my eye liner came out wonky I think this eye look came out stunning. So let’s get into the Face of the Day ….

20200223_150318

Base: I primed my face using Catrice Cosmetics Prime and Fine Poreless Blur Primer ($7.99 at Ulta). I color corrected using Tarte CC Undereye Corrector ($25 at Ulta) in the shade Light/Medium. For foundation I used 3 pumps of Benefit Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation ($30 at Ulta) in the shade 4 Medium Neutral mixed with 2 droppers of the Catrice Cosmetics Light Correcting Serum Primer ($10.99 at Ulta) in the shade Candlelight. I concealed my under eyes using ELF Hydrating Camo Concealer ($6 on their website) in the shade Light Sand. I set my full face using Too Faced Ethereal Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta) in the shade Translucent. I warmed up the face using Benefit Hoola Bronzer ($30 at Ulta). I 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 and set them using RCMA No Color Powder. For today’s eye look I used the Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Complexion Inspired Eye Shadow Palette ($45 at Ulta). For my transition shade I used the color Seashell (a soft peach matte). For my crease shade I chose the color Cocoa (a dusty mauvey brown matte). To deepen my outer v and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid I used the color Truffle (a deep brown matte).  On the inner 2/3 of my mobile lid I used the color Rose Gold (a rose gold sparkle). I then went into the color Sparkling Sand (a rose gold metallic) onto the middle 1/3 of the lid to blend my inner and outer 1/3. On the lower lash line I created a drop shadow using more of the shade Seashell. I then buffed that out using more of the color Cocoa and deepened the lower lash line using more of the color Truffle. I highlighted the inner corners using the shade Shimmering Snow (a pure white with a gold flip sparkle). I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in clear. I filled in my 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 then set that using the shade Swan (a vanilla matte). I lined the lower waterlines using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade As If (a creamy pale nude). I tight lined the upper waterlines using Milani Stay Put Waterproof Eyeliner ($7.99 at Ulta) in the shade 01 Linked On Black (a deep black). I created a dramatic wing using Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner ($22 at Ulta) in the shade Intense Black. I put on a pair of Koko Queen B Lashes ($7.99 on the Lady Moss website) and then I used Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($8.99 at Ulta) on the upper and lower lashes.

Cheeks and Lips: For blush today I am wearing Burt’s Bees Blush ($9.99 at Ulta) in the shade Bare Peach. I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, bridge of the nose, Cupid’s Bow, and center of my forehead using Benefit Box Highlighter ($30 at Ulta) in the shade Cookie. I lined and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Another Round (a rosey nude) and topped the lips off using Loreal Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain ($11.99 at Ulta) in the shade 418 I Empower (a pale peach).

Final Thoughts:

Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eye Shadow Palette: A++                              The first thing I noticed is that the shade are a bit darker on the lids than they are in the pan. The mattes are buttery but the pans are firm. There was kick back in the pans but there was no fall out on the face for the mattes. The shimmers, metallics, and sparkles a smooth and highly pigmented. There is little kick back in the pans but there was tons of fallout on the face, especially with the sparkle shadows. All of the shades blended well and buffed into each other without losing pigmentation and without going muddy. The only shade I had difficulty with was Sparkling Snow… this shade is very chunky and doesn’t apply as well as it swatches. All in all this is a really great palette and I’m happy to have it part of my collection.

ELF Hydrating Camo Concealer: A+++!!!                                                                                      OH MY SWEET BABY PICKLES!!!!! I normally steer clear of hyped up makeup, but I figured I’d give it a try since I decluttered all my other ELF concealers. WOW!! This concealer is amazing!! It does oxidize so you need to set it immediately after applying it, but it looks so pretty under the eyes. I would repurchase this one if I ran out.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner: A++                                                                     I am loving this liquid eyeliner. I normally don’t get along with felt tip liners but this one just works so well. I did notice that when you try to layer it the liner gets a little crunchy but it doesn’t flake or crack up. I will definitely use this one up but I am not sure if I will repurchase this one in the future.

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. Remember save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Spoonie Day Makeup Look Face of the Day

Published February 22, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a great day/night. I finally got my makeup nook cleaned and organized and I am very happy with how it turned out.  I wasn’t sure I would be able to get a Face of the Day post up today. We did a deep cleaning of the house and I was certain that I would be completely knackered. I am in a world of hurt right now, pain all over the body, from all the cleaning and I am very low on energy, but I thought I could at least do a quick go to makeup look. I really don’t like how my makeup came out, I wasn’t able to really take my time to blend and polish everything up, but at least I was able to play with my makeup after all. So even though I didn’t like my  makeup today, I figured I’d still post it…. after all it’s only makeup and can be washed off and started over…. and even though it’s a hot mess…. it reminded me of when I first started out doing my makeup… so I figured I’d share it anyway. This is one of my go to last minute, hurry up and do your makeup…makeup looks….. So let’s jump into the face of the day…..

20200222_153950

Base: I primed my face using Catrice Prime and Fine Poreless Blur Primer ($7.99 at Ulta). I color corrected using Tarte CC Undereye Corrector ($25 at Ulta) in the shade Light/Medium. For foundation I chose one that wouldn’t be to fiddly, NYX Born to Glow Naturally Radiant Foundation ($10 at Ulta) in the shade Nude. I concealed my under eyes with Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Liquid Concealer ($32 at Sephora) in the shade 5.5 and then I set my full face using Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta) in the shade Translucent. I warmed up the face using ColourPop Pressed Bronzer ($8 on their website) in the shade Talk to the Palm. To save me some time and energy I did not bake my high points today.

20200222_153924

Eyes: I primed my lids using 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 my transition color I used more of the Talk to the Palm Bronzer from ColourPop. For the rest of the eye look I used the palette I made by Makeup Geek (discontinued due to rebranding). For my crease shade and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid I used the shade Dark Roast (a deep true brown matte). On my mobile lid I used the shade I’m Peachless (a light peach with gold flip shimmer) on the inner 2/3 and then went in with Punkin’ (a deep coral matte) on the middle 1/3 to blend the inner and outer 1/3 together. On the lower lash line I ran what was left on my transition brush over it and then used more of Punkin’ closest to the lash line. I highlighted the inner corners using the shade Shimma Shimma (a pale champagne shimmer). 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 ($7.99 at Target) 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 shade So Pale (a pale vanilla matte). I lined my waterlines using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade As If (a pale creamy nude). For mascara I used The Balm What’s Your Type ($19 on their website).

20200222_154008

Cheeks and Lips: For blush today I am using Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-HR Blush ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade B-Day Bae (a muted dusty pink matte). I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, bridge of the nose, Cupid’s bow, and center of my forehead using Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder ($44 at Sephora) in the shade Highlight-01 (a soft focus pale champagne). I lined my lips using NYX Suede Matte Lip Pencil ($4 at Ulta) in the shade Whipped Caviar (a dusty mauve) and topped off my lips using Makeup Geek Iconic Lipstick (discontinued due to rebranding) in the shade Naive (a pale peach nude creme).

20200222_154026

Final Thoughts: I really didn’t like this look because I feel like I look sick with the flu. I’m extremely weak right now and this was the best I could do but still I just look pale and washed out. I think the look might have not been so bad if I had the energy to do a winged liner, but I skipped it to save a bit of time. I did want to touch base about the Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Loose Powder. This is an amazing powder!! It gives this beautiful soft focus powder that doesn’t take away from the glowy foundation. It sets your base without looking matte or cakey. This is definitely a powder I will keep in my collection and I can already tell that I will be repurchasing it when I’ve run out.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Sorry for the sloppy makeup job today. I hope you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits. Remember, save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

20200220_175256

Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a great day/night. I woke up to a very cold day here in Florida. The cold always makes my Rheumatoid Arthritis act up. I can barely move, I am very stiff and of course because of the cold my Fibromyalgia is acting up too.

Today I tried a full face of Catrice Cosmetics products. I didn’t buy a mascara, eye liner, lip liner, or lipstick because I have a huge stock pile of those products that I am trying to get through. I’ll do the review of all of the products in Final Thoughts… so  let’s jump right into the Face of the Day….

20200221_143125

Base: I primed the face using Catrice Cosmetics Prime and Fine Poreless Blur Primer ($7.99 at Ulta). I color corrected using Tarte CC Undereye Corrector ($25 at Ulta) in the shade Light/Medium. My foundation is a mix of 2 droppers of Catrice Cosmetics Light Correcting Serum Primer ($10.99 at Ulta) in the shade Candlelight and 1 dropper of the Catrice Cosmetics HD Liquid Coverage Foundation ($10.99 at Ulta) in the shade 030 Sand Beige. I concealed my under eyes using Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer ($5.99 at Ulta) in the shade 005 Light Natural. I set my full face, including my under eyes, using the Catrice Cosmetics Prime and Fine Mattifying Powder ($7.49 at Ulta) in the shade Transparent.

20200221_143055

Eyes: I primed my lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer () 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 Catrice Cosmetics Basic Bae Eyeshadow Palette ($14.99 at Ulta). For my 1st transition shade I used the color #Squad (a soft peach matte). For my 2nd transition shade I used the color #MOTD (a mid-toned camel brown matte). To deepen my crease and the outer 1/3 of the mobile lids I used the shade #MCM (a dusty chocolate brown matte). On my mobile lids I used #Twinning (a yellow tone gold shimmer) on the inner 2/3 and then used #MUA (a soft brown with a bronze flip shimmer) on the outer 1/3. I then went into #Goals (a peach with gold shift shimmer) on the middle 1/3 to blend the inner and outer 1/3 together. On my lower lash line I created a drop shadow using more of the shade #MOTD and then I went in and used more of #MCM. I then used what was left on the brush that I used the shade #Squad on to buff out the lower lash line. I highlighted the inner corners using #Wifey (a soft pink with a silver flip shimmer). I used the shade #TBT (a deep dusty brown matte) to deepen the outer v and also to deepen my lower lash line. I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in the shade clear and then I filled in my brows using Milani Stay Put Brow Color ($8.49 at Ulta) in the shade 05 Dark Brown.I carved out my brow line using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and set the brow line using the shade #Basic (a creamy vanilla matte).

Final Thoughts:

Catrice Cosmetics Prime and Fine Poreless Blur Primer: A++                                               This primer is billed as a light weight primer that gives an instant soft-focus effect for a visibly smooth, pore-free complexion that dries down to a soft powder finish. This primer has a slight scent to it that I didn’t notice when I swatched it last night. It’s nothing to heavy or troublesome, but there is a slight scent non the less. This is a really great primer! It left my face flawless and smooth and my foundation went on easily over it. I liked this primer enough that I can already tell I will repurchase it when I run out.

Catrice Cosmetics Light Correcting Serum Primer: A+ This primer comes in 3 shades: Candlelight, Sunlight, and Morning Glow. It’s billed as a light reflecting liquid primer with a candlelight-inspired golden shimmer that can be add to foundation for a subtle illuminating effect, or applied alone for a highlighting glow. The shimmer in this primer is so subtle but pretty. It had the added benefit of lighting my foundation a bit… the foundation shade I chose is just a hair too deep for me but with 2 drops of this liquid highlighter it helped lighten the foundation perfectly. This gave a beautiful glow to the foundation. It’s not as intense as the Dew Drops from Marc Jacobs. It’s more light the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter only a bit more subtle. I did really enjoy using this priming serum and will keep it part of my collection. I may even repurchase when I run out.

Catrice Cosmetics HD Liquid Coverage Foundation: A++                                                       This foundation comes in 21 shades with 6 shades for out deeper skinned beauties. It’s billed as an ultra-light, high coverage foundation for a natural looking finish that covers  imperfections and mattifies the skin creating a smooth and even complexion for up to 24 hours. This is definitely a full coverage foundation that has a matte finish. The thing about it is that this foundation’s matte doesn’t look like a full on mask like most matte foundations tend to look. At first I did notice it was clinging in weird patches on my forehead, but after I powdered my forehead and used setting spray the foundation melted right into my skin and those patches disappear. It sits on the face wonderfully. I decluttered all my matte foundations because I just don’t like the way they look on the skin. I am so keeping this foundation in my collection and I definitely will be repurchasing it when I run out.

Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer: A+++!!!                          This concealer comes in 17 shades with 4 shades for deeper skin. It’s billed as a long  lasting, liquid concealer for weightless coverage that is highly  pigmented and waterproof formula instantly hides dark circles, imperfections and redness. This concealer is full coverage and demi matte. I left it on a few minutes before setting it with powder to see if it would crease…. it did but once I patted it out again and set it with powder it did not move again. I truly love this concealer. It’s the perfect shade to bring light back to the face and it covered my corrector completely without needing to add more concealer. I have already ordered a back up of this concealer.

Catrice Cosmetics Prime and Fine Mattifying Powder: A+++!!!                                             This powder only comes in the shade Translucent. It’s billed as a delicate transparent powder, enriched with Vitamin A and E, creates a flawless complexion that is a waterproof formula that withstands humidity and mattifies skin for hours. I normally hate translucent pressed powders and I always hate mattifying powders, until I tried this powder! This does mattify the skin however it has a slight sheen to it too that gives this healthy glow to the skin. I loved the finish of this one so much I already ordered a back up for it.

Catrice Cosmetics California In A Box Palette: A++                                                                  This use to come in 2 color ways however they currently are only selling the color way 010 Malibu Beach Collection. It’s billed as a palette to create a perfectly defined, radiant complexion. The palette comes with a satin blush, matte blush, satin bronze, matte bronzer, and a highlighter. It’s a great little palette. The under tones of the bronzers are perfect, the blushes are great for any look, and the highlighter is so pretty (no glitter here). This is a great palette for travel. The products do have a bit of kick back in the pans but I believe that is because they are super finely milled. The powders are buttery and buff into the skin very good with no skipping or turning patchy. I am going to keep this one in rotation because I enjoyed it so much.

Catrice Cosmetics Basic Bae Eyeshadow Palette: A+++!!!!                                                       This palette is billed as being an Instagram inspired palette featuring 12 intensely pigmented eyeshadows in classic neutral shades with matte and shimmering finishes. I did find that there was some major kick back in the pans, however there was no fallout on the face. The shadows are buttery and super pigmented. The matte shadows blend out well and buff into each other without skipping or getting muddy. The shimmer shades slide on smoothly and with just as much intensity as when I swatched them last night. This is a great palette….. TRULY a great palette. I am almost tempted to pick up a back up in case they discontinue it because I can already tell I will be reaching for this one a ton.

Well that’s all for now dolls. A couple of side notes: #1 If you don’t have an Ulta near you, or you live in a country where you can’t get Ulta delivered to you via the web, you can also get Catrice Cosmetics products on their website, I just happened to purchase them all from Ulta. #2 I may not be doing a Face of the Day tomorrow because we are going to give the house a deep cleaning and I am not sure if I will have enough energy when I’m done cleaning to play with makeup. If I do end up playing with makeup I may just do a super simple everyday no makeup, makeup look. Stay tuned Sunday when I try out the new Too Faced Palette and Loose Setting Powder that I hauled last night. Until then, remember… Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

20200220_174905

Hey doll hey!!! Hope you day/night is going good. I’m coming to you with another makeup haul. 1 of the things that I ordered didn’t come in so I emailed ColourPop about the Creme Gel Colour in the shade Exit (white) and am currently waiting for someone to get back to me about the missing product. Before I jump into this haul I wanted to let you know all swatches are done on a bare arm with no primer and with only 1 swipe. So let’s jump into the haul …..

20200220_174918

Real Techniques I purchased all 3 at Ulta : from left to right : Setting Brush $7.99 and the Instapop Eye Duo $9.99 it come with the Base Shadow Brush and the Deluxe Crease Brush.

20200220_175010

This is the Cosmetics Bag that I received with the brush set it’s a holographic bag, super cute.

20200220_175041

I also purchased this eye palette and loose powder at Ulta – the mascara was a free gift with purchase.

Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Loose Setting Powder : $33 for .56 ounces of product in the shade Translucent. It’s a very finely milled powder with a slight sheen…. this will make a beautiful finishing powder.

20200220_175137

Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Palette $45. It has 8 matte shades and 8 shimmer shades and you get .48 total ounces of product.

The picture on the left is without flash and the picture on the right is with flash. These are all 8 of the matte shades: from left to right : Swan, Seashell, Nude, Petal, Warm Rose, Maple, Cocoa, and Truffle. These mattes feel buttery but the pan feels stiff, like it’s tight packed into the pans, but the shades seem to blend out well.

The picture on the left is without flash and the picture on the right is with flash. These are all 8 of the shimmer shades: from left to right : Glistening Snow, Shimmering Pearl, Sparkling Sand, Rose Gold, Sparkling Rum, Golden Light, Sugared Chestnut, and Sparkling Sable. Some of the shimmer shades are stiffer than others. Some are creamier than others as well, with that said these shades are pigmented and glided on smoothly without skipping.

20200220_175256

I purchased all these products at Ulta: From top to bottom and left to right: Prime and Fine Poreless Blur Primer $7.99 for 1.05 fluid ounces , Light Correcting Serum Primer in the shade Candle Light $10.99 for .47 fluid ounces, HD Liquid Coverage Foundation in the shade 030 Sand Beige $10.99 for 1.5 fluid ounces, Prime & Fine Waterproof Mattifying Powder in the shade Translucent $7.49 for .32 ounces, Liquid Camouflage Concealer in the shade 005 Light Natural $5.99 for .17 fluid ounces, California In A Box Bronzer & Blush Palette $14.99 for .5 total ounces, and Basic Bae Eyeshadow Palette $14.99 for .44 ounces of product.

Catrice Prime & Fine Waterproof Mattifying Powder in the shade Translucent $7.49 for .32 ounces. This powder is super finely milled and very buttery. It blurred every fine line on my hand and has a soft focus glow to it.

Catrice Prime and Fine Poreless Blur Primer $7.99 for 1.05 fluid ounces. This is a smooth primer that has a slight sheen to it. This primer has no scent.

Catrice Light Correcting Serum Primer in the shade Candle Light $10.99 for .47 fluid ounces. This is the softest sheen I have every tried for a shimmery primer. This might be due to the fact that it’s a serum or perhaps I need more than 1/2 a drop to get the sheen to show up. There is no scent to this primer and it’s a smooth primer.

Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation in the shade 030 Sand Beige $10.99 for 1.5 fluid ounces. This is a good shade match for me, a tiny bit deeper than me but still a good shade match. This seems to be a very liquidity foundation but it seems to me that this will be a full coverage foundation.

20200220_175741

Catrice Basic Bae Eyeshadow Palette $14.99 for .44 ounces of product. There are 5 mattes and 7 shimmers. The mattes are finely milled and extremely buttery and the shimmers are very creamy and glide on smoothly without skipping.

Taupe Glam Face of the Day

Published February 20, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a great day/night. I feel so much better today. My pain level is around a 5 and I have a bit more energy today. I finally got a full night’s sleep and woke around 7 am. Well, let’s dive into this Face of the Day ….

20200220_125538

Base: I primed my face using ColourPop Pretty Fresh Hydrating Hyaluronic Primer ($12 on their website). I color corrected using Tarte CC Undereye Corrector ($25 at Ulta) in the shade Light-Medium. For foundation today I am using 2 pumps Becca Backlight Priming Filter ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) and 1 pump Private Society Drops of Perfection ($30 on their website) in the shade Medium. I concealed my under eyes using Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer (being discontinued so shades are limited on their website) in the shade Med-Light Neutral. I warmed up the face using Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel ($50 on their website) in the shade Bronze Universal. I set whole face using Believe Beauty Matte Blur Loose Setting Powder ($5 at Dollar General) in the shade Translucent. I slightly baked my jaw line and forehead using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 on the Beautylish website).

20200220_125411

Eyes: I primed my lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and then I set that using more of the Believe Beauty Matte Blur Loose Setting Powder. I used 2 palettes today to complete this eye look. Mostly I used the BH Cosmetics Ultimate Matte 42 Color Shadow Palette ($28 on their website) and then I went in and used the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In a Palette ($75 on the Beautylish website). For my transition shade I used the 4th shade of the 2nd row of the BH palette (a soft camel tan matte). For my 2nd transition shade I used a combo of the 2nd shade of the 4th row (a mid-toned peach matte) and the 3rd shade of the 4th row (a mid-toned dusty brow matte). To deepen the crease and the outer 1/3 of the mobile lids I used the Smoke shade from the Charlotte Tilbury palette (a mid-toned burgundy matte). I then used the Brighten shade (a taupe shimmer) from the same palette on the inner 2/3 of the mobile lid and then went into the Enhance shade (a bronze shimmer) for the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid. I then went into the bronzer in the same palette and placed that on the middle 1/3 to blend the inner and outer 1/3 together. I then created a drop shadow on the lower lash line using the 6th shade of the 6th row of the BH palette (a deep raspberry matte) and then I deepened the lower lash line using the 6th shade of the 5th row (a deep dusty brown matte) and then I took what was left on my 1st transition shade brush and buffed the lower lash line out. I then went into a combo of the 7th shade of the 6th row (a dusty black matte) and the 6th shade of the 5th row (a deep dusty brown matte) and deepened the outer v. I highlighted the inner corners using more of the Brighten shade from the Charlotte Tilbury palette and then layered a bit of Urban Decay Single Shadow ($22 at Ulta) in the shade Urban Cowboy over top of that. I then lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Creme Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Get Paid (a rose gold metallic) and then layered the ColourPop Creme Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Joy Ride (a deepened burgundy). I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in clear and filled in my brows using Loreal Brow Stylist Definer ($7.99 at Target) 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 with the 1st shade of the 3rd row (a creamy vanilla matte). I put on a pair of KoKo Queen B lashes ($7.99 on the Lady Moss website) and then used MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara ($20 at Ulta and MAC) on my lower and upper lashes. I tight lined the upper lash line using ColourPop Creme Gel Colour ($7 on their website) in the shade Swerve (a deep black).

Cheeks and Lips: For blush I used the blush shade from the Charlotte Tilbury palette (a dusty mauve satin). I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, bridge of the nose, Cupid’s Bow, and center of my forehead using ColourPop Super Shock Cheek Pearlized ($9 but on slae for 6.75 on their website) in the Disney Designer Color A Smile and a Song (light gold). I then used the Soft Focus powder from the Too Faced Turn Up the Light Palette ($42 at Ulta) as a finishing powder. I lined my lips using Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat ($22 at Sephora) in the shade Pillow Talk and filled in my lips using Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick ($34 at Sephora) in also the shade Pillow Talk.

Final Thoughts:

ColourPop Pretty Fresh Hydrating Hyaluronic Primer: A++                                                 This is a very moisturizing primer. It does nothing to blur the texture of the face, but it does help grip the foundation. It doesn’t have a scent to it either. It’s a nice primer but I am not sure if it will be a repurchase for me or not.

Private Society Drops of Perfection: A+++!!!                                                                              This is a great foundation. Very pretty on the face. It’s a dewy foundation. The only set back is the shade is a bit dark for me. The shade bellow it is too light for me. But I make it work.

ColourPop Creme Gel Colour: A++                                                                                               This gel liner is very creamy and super pigmented. It went on without skipping or tugging and set down on the waterline nicely. I’ve ordered it in 2 more shades, a brown and a white.

Well that’s all dolls. I hope you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits. Stay tuned later today for another Makeup Haul post and as always, Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Eyes: I primed my lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and then I set that using more of the Believe Beauty Matte Blur Loose Powder. For today’s eye look I used the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals Palette Vol. 1 ($48 on the Tati Beauty website). For my transition shade I used the color Soothe Matte (a camel matte). For my crease color I used a combo of the shades Aura Matte (a vanilla matte), Story Matte (a burnt orange matte), and Ritual Matte (a rich chocolate matte). I also took this color combo onto the outer 1/3 of my mobile lid. I then moved to work on my mobile lid. I took the shade Soothe Metallic (a warm champagne gold shimmer metallic) onto the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid. I took the shade Ritual Metallic (a chocolate bronze shimmer metallic) onto the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid. I used the shade Aura Metallic (a  champagne shimmer metallic) on the inner 1/3 of the mobile lid. I then went in with the shade Story Metallic (a bright nectarine with gold shimmer metallic) onto the middle of the middle 1/3 and the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid to blend all the shade together. I then went in with more of the shade Ritual Matte (a rich chocolate matte) to deepen up the outer v and the outer most part of the mobile lid. For my drop shadow I first used the shade Soothe Matte (a camel matte) and then I went into the shade Story Matte (a burnt orange matte) to blow the drop shadow out a bit and then I went in closest to my lash line using the more of the shade Ritual Matte (a rich chocolate matte). I highlighted the inner corners using more of the shade Aura Metallic (a  champagne shimmer metallic) and then used a tiny bit of the Dazzle shade from the Too Faced Turn Up the Light Palette ($42 at Ulta). I lined my lower waterlines using BH Cosmetics Power Pencil ($8 at Ulta and on their website) in the shade Beige and tight lined the upper lash line using BH Cosmetics Power Pencil ($8 at Ulta and on their website) in the shade Black. I Set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in clear and filled in my brows using Loreal Brow Stylist Definer ($8.99 at Ulta) in the shade Dark Brunette. I carved out my brows using the BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and then I set it using Aura Matte (a vanilla matte). Since it’s National Lash Day I decided to go a tiny bit bolder for my falsies today. I put on a pair of Kiss Lash Couture Faux Mink Lashes ($5.99) in the style Little Black Dress. I then created a bold wing liner using Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner ($22 at Ulta) in the shade Intense Black.

Final Thoughts:

NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer: A+++!!!!                                                                       I’ve had this primer in my collection a long while and never opened it. I saw it on a YouTube video last night and thought I’d give it a try. This primer is amazing!!! It evened out my face so perfectly. It blurred my pores and fine lines, it created a smooth canvas for my to apply foundation on. I’m so glad I tried it. This is one that once I have finished it up and will definitely be repurchasing it.

Milani Retouch + Erase Light-Lifting Concealer: A++                                                              This concealer is light weight and serum like, but it covers very well. It doesn’t crease on me. It does however oxidize just a little bit. I think if I were to repurchase it I would have to pick it up in the shade light. The shade I have is my exact shade match and I tend to like a brighter under eye area.

BH Cosmetics Power Pencil: A+++!!!!                                                                                      Here’s another pencil that sets down on my waterlines. There is no tugging or skipping. It sets firmly so there isn’t any smudging and it lasts all day. I’ve already purchased back ups in both the beige and black shades.

Kiss Lash Couture Faux Mink Lashes:A+++!!!!                                                                       These lashes are so pretty! They have a cute little flair on the outer side that elongates the eyes. The band is the perfect thickness, and the sides do not pinch my eye line. I also did not need to cut these lashes to fit.

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. Remember save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m doing a bit better today. Still in heaps of pain and still don’t have enough energy, but I’m doing better and that’s what’s important. I made this look to match the shirt I was going to wear today, but I spilled coffee all over myself this morning so my eye look doesn’t match my shirt now …. well let’s jump into the Face of the Day …..

20200218_122139

Base: I primed my face using Makeup Forever Step 1 Smoothing Base ($37 at Sephora).

Eyes: I primed the lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard.

I then took more of the shade Haute and patted that on the middle 1/3 to blend the outer and inner 1/3 together. For my drop shadow on the lower lash line I used whatever was left on my crease brush and then went in closer to the lash line with just the shade Haute.

Cheeks and Lips: For my blush today I used ELF Primer Infused Blush ($6 at Ulta and on the ELF website) in the shade Always Punchy (a bright coral pink matte). I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, center of the forehead, Cupid’s Bow, and bridge of the nose using Benefit Powder Highlighter ($30 at Ulta) in the shade Cookie. I then pulled in the Too Faced Turn Up The Light Palette ($42 at Ulta) and used the Soft Focus as an all over setting powder. I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 but on sale for $4.20 on their website) in the shade BFF (a warm nude) and filled them in using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade At Twilight (a warm muted coral).

Final Thoughs:

Believe Beauty Brighten Up Color Correcting Concealer: WARNING:                                        I do love this color corrector so much….but….. BE very careful not to get this product in your eye!!!! It’s so emollient that I accidentally got some into my right eye and the burn that I felt was intense…. I had to use eye wash to clear it out of my eye and I am still feeling a slight burn even now.

Pixi by Petra Beauty Balm High Coverage Foundation: A+++!!!                                            This foundation is so pretty and oh man when you add a dewy glow primer into it the foundation looks AMAZING!!! This foundation is full coverage for sure and a little goes a long way. It also doesn’t feel like I’m wearing any foundation at all.

Loreal Infallible Full Wear Concealer: B+++                                                                    OK….now that I’ve tried this concealer in a smaller amount under the eye…. it actually looks pretty. I only graded it a B+++ because I did notice that after a light setting of powder it still creased and I had to go back into with more powder.

AOA Studio Fat Lash Mascara: A++                                                                                                This is a pretty great mascara for being only $1.00. I don’t like the wand but I love the outcome of the product. It gives length and it doesn’t go clumpy or flaky.

ELF Primer Infused Blush: A+++!!!!                                                                                               Oh wow!!!! This blush is amazing! It’s super pigmented, it is matte without being dusty, and it buffs into the cheeks perfectly. I have already ordered another color.

Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope that the rest of your day/night is great. I do have a new makeup haul coming Friday. See ya tomorrow for a new Face of the Day…. Until then remember…. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO
