Hey doll hey!!! How are you doing today? Great I hope. I got up feeling pretty good today. Nose is still running but my sore throat is gone. I didn’t get much sleep last night because I was up coughing a heap but even with that I feel pretty OK today. I got up wanting to play with my Urban Decay Born To Run palette ($49 at Sephora) and I wanted to go a little glam today too so this was the look I came up with. Today ends my scent of the day series as I have run out of new perfumes to share with you…. though I think I may still share with you what scent I am wearing …. I just wont be doing an individual picture and scent note for them since I already have done my whole collection. *NOTE* these pictures don’t do this eye look justice! For 1 it doesn’t look like the orange pop on the outer v is blended in but it truly is and there is this amazingly pretty gradient of colors that isn’t showing up on camera. So let’s jump into today’s scent and Face of the Day ….
Base: I primed my face using Physicians Formula SoftLight Blurring Primer ($15.99 on their website) and I blurred my pores using Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Sephora). For foundation today I am wearing a combo of 2 squeezes of Pixi by Petra Flawless Beauty Primer ($22 on their website) and 10 pumps L’Oreal Infallible 24-HR Fresh Wear Foundation ($14.99 at Ulta) in the shade 420 True Beige. 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 Private Society Coveted Concealer ($22 on their website) in the shade Medium. I set my full face using Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($23 at Sephora) in the shade Translucent. I warmed up my face using BH Cosmetics Brilliance Bronzer ($10 at Ulta) in the shade Bronze Babe. 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 Urban Decay Born To Run palette ($49 at Sephora). For my first transition shade I used the color Weekender (light neutral beige matte). As my second transition and also crease color I used the shade Riff (brown-nude with floating micro-sparkle a light sequin shadow). For my full mobile lid I took went into the shade Accelerate (reddish copper metallic) and then tapped the shade Ignite (rose gold metallic) over the middle 1/3 of the lid for added dimension. For the outer v and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid I used the shade Baja (burnt orange matte). For the lower lash line I created a drop shadow using more of the shade Riff and then I went in and smoked that out using more of the shade Weekender. I then went in closest to the lash line and used more of the shade Baja from the outer end to 2/3 of the way in and then used a combo of the shades Accelerate and Ignite for the remaining 1/3 of the lash line. I tight lined both my upper and lower lash line using Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Pen ($12 at Target and on the Pixi website) in the shade Black Caviar (a deep rich brown). I highlighted the inner corners using the shade Blaze (light peach with pink shift 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 L’Oreal 24-HR Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.99 at Walmart) in the shade 899 Endless Pearl (a creamy vanilla matte). 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 12-HR Amazonian Clay Blush ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Captivating (bright peach 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 ColourPop Disney Designer Collection (a very warm toned light gold metallic finished) A Smile and a Song (was limited edition and no longer sold). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Chi Chi (bright true orange) and filled in the lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade Chi Chi (bright true orange matte).
Final Thoughts: So I’m still waiting for my Covid-19 test results…. I’m going stir crazy at this point…. I mean I know we are on lock down right now, but if I couldn’t only get my test results back at least I’d be able to get out to go to the super market to food shop with my husband. I’m just so frustrated right now.
The President has signed our country’s Covid-19 Stimulus Package Bill so hopefully within a few weeks we will get some much needed help with our bills. I feel bad because I’ve had to dodge my non-essential bills because we just can’t pay them right now because my husband had to take a pay cut to stay working…. which has had a trickle down effect on our budget (as it has for many of us).
This weekend, to break up the monotony I was thinking of rearranging the furniture of my bedroom and living room. I also keep forgetting that we have a pool table/ping pong table that we could be using because it’s in our lanai so technically we are still sheltering in place.
Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope and pray that you are all in good spirits and in good health. Have a great rest of your day/night. Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
