Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a great day/night. I’m doing pretty good today. It’s a low pain high energy day for me so that’s an awesome thing. I’ve been loving doing glam looks lately so I decided to do another smokey look. Today I’m wearing Katy Perry Royal Revolution perfume. Let’s jump into today’s Face of the Day ….
Base: I primed my face using JCat Beauty Prime and Glow Face Illuminator ($7.99 on their website) in the Licorice formula. I also blurred my pores using Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Sephora). For foundation today I am wearing a combo of 5 pumps of Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter ($45 at Sephora) in the shade Dew You? and 7 pumps of Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer ($8.99 at Target) in the shade 03 Light 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 Too Faced Born This Way Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Vanilla. I set my full face with Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent. I warmed up my face using MAC Bronzing Powder ($30 at MAC) in the shade Matte Bronzer. For touch up powder today I am using Catrice Prime and Fine Mattifying Waterproof Powder ($7.49 at Ulta) in the shade transparent.
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 Born This Way The Natural Nudes Palette ($45 at Ulta and Sephora). For my transition shade I used the color Maple (warm caramel brown matte). For my crease I used the shade Cocoa (medium chocolate brown matte). I deepened the crease, outer v, and outer 1/3 of my mobile lid using the shade Truffle (deep rich brown matte). On the remaining 2/3 of my mobile lid I used the shade Shimmering Pearl (gold with a pink shift soft metallic) and then went back over the middle 1/3 using the shade Rose Gold (rose gold soft metallic) to blend the inner and outer 1/3 together. For my lower lash line I created a drop shadow using more of the shade Cocoa. I deepened the lower lash line using more of the shade Truffle and then buffed out the whole lash line using more of the shade Maple. I highlighted the inner corners using the shade Glistening Snow (white with gold shift soft metallic). I tight lined the upper and lower waterlines using Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen ($12 at Target) in the shade Black Caviar (deep brown). 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 Swan (eggshell 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: For blush I am using JCat Beauty BlushMellow ($4.99 on their website) in the shade Tutti Fluffy (a bright coral 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 the Rachh Loves & Pixi Beauty The Layers Highlighting Palette ($24 at Target) in the shade Lace (a pink iwht gold flip). I lined and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Brink (terracotta rose) and topped off my lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade Slacker (soft salmon creme).
Final Thoughts: So I’ve been loving this blush color lately… it’s just the perfect coral pink for a flush of color. I’ve also been doing my blush placement a bit different lately. Instead of placing my blush directly on my cheeks I take the blush a bit higher on the cheek bones. I saw this on a Makeup Forever master class video and noticed that it gives a more youthful look to the face.
I’ve also been loving this lip combo too… It’s very flattering and goes with almost any eye look.
Well that’s all for now dolls…. I hope and pray you are healthy, safe, and in good spirits. Remember ….. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
