Simple Eye Face of the Day

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I got off to the latest of starts today. Got up around 10:30 am and didn’t get started on my makeup until around 12:45 pm so I decided just to do a simple eye look to make it easier and faster for myself today. For let’s jump into what scent I’m wearing and the Face of the Day …..

Ralph Lauren Romance Parfum. I purchased this one at Ulta for $78 for the 1.7 fluid ounce bottle. This scent for a while use to be my everyday scent. the notes are: at the top: mandarin essence, pink pepper, and white violet leaves; the middle notes are: rose, jasmine. marigold, and geranium; and the scent is rounded out with: patchouli, oakmoss, and musk. See here it is again!!! I must like patchouli more than I thought I did because this is the 3rd scent this week that I wore that has patchouli in it or perhaps I just don’t like patchouli on it’s own.  I would say this scent is very feminine chic. I always feel so put together when I’m wearing this one. I’m also working on my second bottle of this scent. I typically do not repurchase the same perfumes because I have such a large collection… but I just couldn’t imagine my collection without this perfume.



Base:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my face using Makeup Forever Step-1 Primer ($37 at Sephora). I chose not to color correct today because I bought my foundation all the way up under my eyes.  My foundation combo for the day is 2 pumps of Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter ($45 at Sephora) in the shade Dew You?, 5 pumps of the Physicians Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer ($13.99 on Amazon but can be found at Walmart) in the shade Glow, and 3 full droppers of Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation ($39 at Sephora) in the shade Light Sand. I used a very little of Pixi by Petra Pat Away Concealer ($15.99 at Target) in the shade Nude to add a touch more coverage to my under eyes. I set my undereyes using Catrice Prime and Fine Mattifying Waterproof Powder ($7.49 at Ulta) in the shade Transparent (I also chose this powder as my touch up powder for today). I then set the rest of my face using Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent. I warmed up the face using my Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel ($50 on their website) in the shade Universal Bronze.


Eyes:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and set that using Catrice Prime and Fine Mattifying Waterproof Powder ($7.49 at Ulta) in the shade Transparent. For today’s eye look I used the Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Complexion Inspired Eye Shadow Palette ($45 at Ulta and Sephora). As my transition and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid shade I used the color  Maple (warm caramel brown matte). On the inner 2/3 of my mobile lid I used the shade Seashell (peachy cream matte). I then went in with the shade  Cocoa (medium chocolate brown matte) to deepen the outer v and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid. I took what was left on my transition shade brush to run along the lower lash line.  I set my brows using Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($6.99 at Ulta but I purchased mine from Amazon) in clear (I found this product thanks to a fellow beauty blogger named Courtney Carruthers) and then filled in my brows using ELF Ultra Precise Brow Pencil ($5 at Ulta and on the ELF website) in the shade Deep Brown and then I carved out my brow line using the BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and set the brow line using the shade Swan (eggshell matte). I popped on a pair of Ardell lashes ($4 at Ulta) in a style I can’t remember … I just remember that these are Ardell lashes. I lined the lower waterlines using NYX Faux Whites Liner ($8 at Ulta) in the shade Linen (nude) and coated my upper and lower lashes with MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara ($20 at Ulta) in the shade Black. I then highlighted the inner corners using Urban Decay Single Eye Shadow ($20 at Ulta) in the shade Midnight Cowboy (an icy pink with silver reflect).





Cheeks and Lips:                                                                                                                               For blush today I am wearing NARS Blush ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Dolce Vita (a dusty rose satin). I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, Cupid’s Bow, bridge of my nose, and the high points of my brows using BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Champagne Pop (soft gold with pinky-peach pearl). I lined and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil (no longer sold on it’s own … can be found in the Big Box of Lippie Pencils) in the shade Oh Sis (smoked paprika) and then topped the lips off using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade Cami (cool-toned mauve).


Final Thoughts:                                                                                                                                      I really did need to sleep in today since I got up so early yesterday but I really hate that the day seems to be all but gone now.

The foundation combo I did today is so pretty and skin like. I think I might be wearing this combo again tomorrow. I would however use only 1 pump of the Marc Jacobs Dew Drops since I think it makes the skin look a bit glittery under the Too Faced Ethereal Powder.

Well that’s all for today dolls. Thanks for stopping by. 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.
