Matte Smokey Purple Eye Face of the Day

Hey doll hey!!! How are you today? Great I hope. I woke up around 8:30 AM and tried to get my makeup done but I had to rest a ton today… I was up most of the night coughing and vomiting because I was coughing so much. It left me feeling super weak today so because of all of my rest stops I didn’t get my makeup finished until 5:30 PM …. I wanted to give up so bad but I enjoy doing my Face of the Day posts…. so I pushed through the fatigue. I wanted to do a smokey purple look today…. it’s not the best it could be because of how tired I feel and because stopping and starting makeup tends to through me off my game …. but none the less I got the look completed…. so let’s jump into the scent and Face of the Day ….


Davidoff  Cool Water. I purchased this one last year when I got nostalgic for my college scent. I purchased it through Amazon for $30 for a 3.4 fluid ounce bottle. The notes are: Ozonic Scents (meaning it has an aquatic scent), Citrus, Pineapple, Black Currant, Honeydew Melon, Lotus Blossom, Water Lily, May Rose, Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, Orris (the root of the Iris flower), Vetiver, Sandalwood, Peach, and Mulberry. The result is just heavenly! It truly has an aquatic scent to it that is a bit sweet and a bit musky. This is a great causal day perfume. I fall in love all over again with this scent every time I wear it. 


Base:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my face using Flower Beauty In Your Prime Pore-Minimizing Primer ($10.99 at Ulta) and blurred my pores using Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Sephora). For my foundation today I used a combo of 5 pumps of BECCA Backlight Priming Filter ($39 at Sephora) and 10 pumps of NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation ($49 at Sephora) in the shade Light 5 Fiji. 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 Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Concealer (discontinued) in the shade R22. I set my full face using Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder () in the shade Translucent. I warmed up my face using Benefit Hoola Bronzer from my Babe on Board (no longer available was a limited edition product) face palette. 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 2 days ago and 2 shades from the other ColourPop palette I created. For my first transition shade I used the color Wake Up Call (a warm sand matte). For my second transition shade I used a combo of Wake Up Call (a warm sand matte) and Feathered (a rich chocolate brown matte). On the inner 2/3 of my mobile lid I used the shade Pretty Cruel (a berry mauve with gold flecks sequin). On the outer 1/3 of my mobile lid and also the outer v I used the shade Sleeper (a matte eggplant pressed pigment). I used the more of the shade Pretty Cruel on the lower lash line to create a drop shadow and than went in with more of the shade Sleeper to deepen the lower lash line. I highlighted the inner corners using a layered combo of the shade Earthshine (a pinky lavender with a blue duochrome flip metallic) and Liar Liar (a pale pink metallic). 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 Lippie Pencil (this shade is only available in the Lippie Box Vault on their website) in the shade THB (deep violet). I popped on a pair of Profusion Beauty 3D Faux Mink Lashes ($7 for pack of 5 on their website) in the style Big Tease and coated my upper and lower lashes with L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($8.99 at Ulta).


Cheeks and Lips:                                                                                                                                My blush today is Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-HR Blush ($29 at Sephora) in the shade Blushing Bride (a rosey pink matte). I highlighted my Cupid’s Bow, tops of the cheeks, bridge of the nose, center of my chin, and high points of the brows using Dandelion Twinkle from the Benefit Babe on Board Palette (no longer available was a limited edition product). 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:                                                                                                                                   So today our county goes on lock down at 11 PM … for 2 weeks… but it may be extended further than that if extra time is needed. I have never been in a lock down situation before…. it’s pretty scary to know that things have gotten so bad and people have not done what they were asked that the Government has to step in and essentially put us all on a time out. I hope and pray that this thing gets resolved quickly that we will not have many months (as so people say could happen) of battling this virus. My anxiety disorder is on high alert because of the state of the planet right now. I fear what will happen next…. what will happen if the Governments can not get a handle on this virus.

Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your night/day and that you are healthy and in good spirits. Remember … save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
