Monochromatic: Mauve Face of the Day

Hey doll hey!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m having a very high pain and very low energy day today.

I wanted to do a simple look today cause I don’t feel that well. So I decided to go monochromatic so that I didn’t have to fuss about too much.

Today I am wear Estee Lauder Pleasures perfume. Let’s jump into this Face of the Day….


Base:                                                                                                                                                          I primed my face using Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer ($54 at Sephora). For foundation today I used a combo of 5 pumps of BECCA Backlight Priming Filter ($39 at Sephora) and 2 full dollops of NYX Bare With Me Tinted Skin Veil ($13 for Ulta) in the shade Beige Camel. I color corrected using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 at Target) in the shade Brightening Peach. I used 2 dots of L’Oreal Infallible Full Wear Concealer ($13.49 at Ulta) in the shade 360 Cashmere. I set my full face using Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent. I warmed up my face using Benefit Boxed Bronzer ($30 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Hoola. 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 ColourPop Making Mauves Palette ($14 on their website).  I used the shade Solitaire (soft mauve matte) all over my lids (from lash to brow). I then used the shade Mauve On Top (icy rose metallic) on the inner 1/3 of the lid and then went in with the shade A La Mode (true mauve with pinpoints of silver and copper ultra metallic) on the middle 1/3 to blend the outer and inner 1/3 together. I then went in with the shade Big Fig (mid-tone dusty lavender matte) to deepen the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the outer v. I then highlighted the inner corners using the shade Bicoastal (pink ivory metallic). For the lower lash line I did just a little amount of Solitaire (soft mauve matte) and deepened the lash line with more of Big Fig (mid-tone dusty lavender matte). I lined my lower waterlines using Charlotte Tilbury Eye Powder Pencil ($22 at Sephora) in the shade The Classic (a dusty deep brown).  I set my brows using the soap brow method and then filled in my brows using ELF Lock On Liner & Brow Cream ($4 on their website) in the shade Medium Brown. 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 L’Oreal 24-HR Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.99 at Walmart) in the shade 899 Endless Pearl (a creamy vanilla matte). I popped on a paid of Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes ($11.99 for a 2 pack at Ulta) in the style Flirty and then I coated my upper and lower lashes with L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($8.99 at Ulta).


Cheeks and Lips:                                                                                                                                For blush tonight I chose Milani Rose Powder Blush ($9.49 at Ulta) in the shade 08 Tea Rose (dusty mauve matte).  I highlighted my Cupid’s Bow, tops of the cheeks, center of the chin, bridge of the nose, and high points of the brows using the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38 at Sephora ) in the shade Champagne Pop (soft gold with pinky-peach pearl). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil (only available in their Lippie Pencil Vault on their website) in the shade Lumiere (dusty mauve pink) and topped off my lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade Cookie (warm brown nude matte).


Final Thoughts:                                                                                                                                     So I told you already that hubby, the sweet man that he is, created a sewing studio for me out of one of our spare rooms. I was looking forward to getting back to creating purses but I don’t really have the energy to do them right now because it can take me upwards of 3 hours to finish one purse. But today hubby told me the CEO of his company is now requiring their staff to wear protective masks. I though hmmm … I can totally turn out a mask in less than 10 minutes …. so I have decided my activity for today will be making masks for my hubby’s whole team, provided my energy allows me to make that many masks in one go…. I know I have tons of cotton fabric …. just not sure how much elastic I still have. I’ll post them when I’ve completed them.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Please stay safe, remain in doors as humanly possible, and I hope 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.
