Hey doll hey!! How’s your day/night going? Mine is OK. I still have Flu symptoms and my throat is on fire right now. I did go to get the Covid-19 testing done today. That was an experience. First of all I was not permitted to leave my car. I had to wait for the nurse to come outside and attend to me car side. She was covered head to toe in disposable hospital gear and was double masked. She was polite and explained the process to me. Basically they take a big flat looking Q-Tip and put it all the way up my nose. This was not a pleasant feeling…. but it was over in a matter of a few seconds. Now all I have to do is wait till Friday and my doctor will call me with the results. Until then, even thought I know all I have is the Flu, I am on quarantine and can not leave my home or have anyone come over and my family is also on lock down. Hopefully I start to feel better soon so I can clean the house and rearrange the furniture (I do this every Spring). Well that’s enough of that… Let’s jump into the scent and Face of the Day ….
Base: I primed my face using Catrice Cosmetics Prime and Fine Poreless Blur Primer ($7.99 at Ulta).My foundation today is a combo of 2 pumps Catrice Cosmetics Light Correcting Serum Primer ($10.99 at Ulta) in the shade Candlelight, 3 pumps of the Physicians Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer ($14.39 at Walgreens) in the shade Glow, and 3 droppers of Cover FX Custom Cover Drops ($29 at Ulta) in the shade G Medium 1. 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 using Believe Beauty Matte Blur Loose Powder ($5 at Dollar General) in the shade Translucent and warmed up my face using MAC Bronzing Powder ($30 at MAC) in the shade Matte Bronze. For touch up powder today I am using Flower Beauty Light Illusion Perfecting Powder ($13.99 at Target) in the shade Beige L4-M1.
Eyes: I primed my lids using P.Louise Base ($10 pound sterling/ $12.08 USD on their website… can also be found on the Morphie website for $15) in the shade Rumour 0.5 and set that using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 on the Beautylish website) For today’s eye look I used the BH Cosmetics Ultimate Matte 42-Color Eyeshadow Palette ($28 but on sale for $19.60 on their website). For my transition shade I used the 5th shade of the 4th row (a light dusty mauve matte). My second transition shade is the 4th color of the 3rd row (a mid toned camel brown matte). I deepened my crease and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid using the 3rd shade of the 3rd row (a mid toned chocolate brown matte). On the inner 2/3 of the mobile lid I used Hikari Cosmetics Cream Pigment ($15 on their website) in the shade Honeydew (icy pink with silver and lavender reflect) and then I went back over the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid with the 4th shade of the 1st row (a red based terracotta matte). I created a drop shadow on the lower lash line using more of the 4th shade of the 1st row (a red based terracotta matte) and then deepened my lower lash line using more of the 3rd shade of the 3rd row (a mid toned chocolate brown matte). I set my brows using Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($6.99 at Ulta but I purchased mine from Amazon) in clear and then filled in my brows using Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil ($24 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade 4.5 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 1st shade of the 1st row (a creamy vanilla matte). I highlighted the inner corners using Urban Decay Single Shadow ($20 at Ulta) in the shade Midnight Cowboy (pink champagne with a silver reflect). I lined my lower waterlines using Charlotte Tilbury Eye Powder Pencil ($22 at Sephora) in the shade The Classic (a mid toned brown). I popped on a pair of Ardell Studio Effects Lashes ($5.99 at Ulta) in the style Wispies and coated my upper and lower lashes with L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($8.99 at Ulta).
Cheeks and Lips: For blush today I am wearing the ELF Primer Infused Blush ($6 at Ulta and the ELF website) in the shade Always Punchy (a bright coral matte). Today I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, center of the chin, bridge of the nose, Cupid’s Bow, and high points of the brow using the Glow shade from the Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Love Bug (a rich mahogany) and I filled in the lips using BH Cosmetics and It’s My Raye Raye Lipstick (is limited edition and no longer available) in the color Rosy Raye (a beautiful mid toned rose red matte).
Final Thoughts: So I tried the P.Louise Base today for the first time. I truly understand what all the hype is about!!! This base is amazing! First of all I only needed a pea sized amount for both lids. Secondly it held my shadows perfectly and because of how light the base is the shades popped really well. Thirdly I used some more of the base to clean up my mobile lid before putting down the shimmering shades and because the base remains tacky the shimmer shadow set down over the base very well and did not cause any fallout. I was truly impressed with this product and do see myself repurchasing it when I run out.
Well that’s all for now dolls. Please stay safe. I hope and pray that 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.
