Smokey Gold Eye Face of the Day

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day going? Great I hope. I woke up around 8 AM today and kinda just laid in bed for awhile. I’m feeling a bit better today. Throat is no longer sore and my pain level is around 6. I still have a runny nose and a nasty little cough but for the most part I’m doing pretty good. I called my doctor for my Covid-19 test results and they STILL don’t have them back from the testing center…. this worries me because that means that there are a heap of people with symptoms that have taken the test and this is why the results are taking forever…. that makes me sad for the human race. Well …. let’s jump into today’s scent and Face of the Day …..

Elizabeth Arden Red Door Revealed. I purchased mine from Macy’s for $30 for 3.3 fluid ounces. I have repurchased this scent 2 times and truly ardor this scent. the notes are  orchid, peony,  pear rose, orange blossom, plum, tiare flower, yellow champaca, oakmoss, musk, amber and Guaiac wood. This is a clean crisp scent that’s slightly sweet with a heady floral make up. This perfume is great for either casual or dressy looks and is one of my all time favorite Spring time scents.


Base:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my face using Flower Beauty In Your Prime Pore-Minimizing Primer ($10.99 at Ulta) and also Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta) to blur my pores around my cheeks and nose. My foundation today is a combo of 3 pumps BECCA Backlight Priming Filter ($39 at Sephora) and 3 pumps Revolution Beauty Conceal & Hydrate Radiance Foundation ($12 at Ulta and on their website) in the shade F5.7.  I lightly color corrected my under eyes using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 at Target and on the Pixi Beauty website) in the shade Brightening Peach. I used 3 dots under each eye of Flower Beauty Light Illusion Full Coverage Concealer ($10 on their website) in the shade L3.4 Light. 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 ColourPop Pressed Bronzer ($8 on their website) in the shade Talk to the Palm. For touch up powder today I am using Physicians Formula Natural Defense Setting the Tone Finishing Powder ($14.99 at Target) in the shade Light.


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 today I chose not to set the base. For today’s eye look I used the ColourPop palette I created that I hauled yesterday.  For my transition shade I used the color  Sea Stars (a medium yellow brown matte). For my crease shade I used the color Top Notch (a terracotta brown matte). I then used the shade 20 Something (a peachy gold metallic) all over my mobile lid. To deepen my outer v and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid I used the shade Feathered (a rich chocolate brown matte) from the 1st palette I put together from ColourPop. I created a drop shadow using more of the shade Sea Stars (a medium yellow brown matte) and then used more of the shade Top Notch (a terracotta brown matte) closest to my lower lash line. I then used the shade Liar Lair (a pale pink metallic) to highlight the inner corners of my eyes. 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 Milani Stay Put Brow Color ($8.49 at Ulta) in the shade 05 Dark Brown. I carved out my brow line using the BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte sides and set the brow line using the shade Hear Me Out (a white peach matte). I lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Creme Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Get Paid (a rose gold metallic) and I created a winged liner using Kat Von D Tattoo Liner ($21 at Sephora) in the shade Mad Max Brown and popped on a pair Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes ($12 for 5 pairs at Ulta) in the style Flirty and coated my upper and lower lashes with L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($8.99 at Ulta).


Cheeks and Lips:                                                                                                                                For my blush and highlighter I used the Rimmel London and Kate face palette ($6 on Amazon) in the shade 002 Coral Glow. The blush is a pretty satin coral and the highlight is a standard champagne. I highlighted my Cupid’s Bow, tops of the cheeks, bridge of the nose, center of my chin, and high points of the brows. I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Another Round (a rosey nude) and filled in the lips using ColourPop Creme Lux Lipstick (shade discontinued) in the shade Uno Mas (a medium coral demi matte).


Final Thoughts:                                                                                                                                      I really enjoyed creating this eye look. the shades blend out so perfectly and there was no fallout, although there was some kickback in the pans. I was super excited that I got my winged liner to match on both eyes. I was really feeling this look today everything came together smoothly with out any problems. I love this lip color …. this may be my new favorite nude lip ever.

My husband’s job informed him that he will have to take a 10% cut in pay to remain working during this whole Corona thing. I am a little worried but feel blessed that at least he still has his job. The only bad part is that he will have to take a furlough for the first part of April which means I have no idea how we will get by for the first 1/2 of April… as I’m sure many others are feeling.
