Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m doing pretty good today. Got plenty of restful sleep. Woke up at a decent time. Am having a low pain and moderate energy day.
Today I am wearing Cool Water by Davidoff perfume. Now on to today’s Face of the Day…..
Base: I primed my whole face using ELF Poreless Putty Primer ($8 at Ulta and on the ELF website) and then went in with a touch of Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Sephora) around my pores. My foundation today is a combo of 7 pumps of BECCA Backlight Priming Filter ($39 at Sephora), 3 literal drops of L’Oreal True Match Lumi Glow Amour ($14.99 at Ulta) inn the shade 507 Day Break, and 2 droppers of Cover FX Custom Cover Drops ($29 at Ulta and Sephora … also can be found on Beautylish’s website) in the shade G Medium 1. I color corrected using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 at Target) in the shade Brightening Peach. I used 2 dots of ColourPop Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Creamy Concealer ($9 on their website) in the shade Medium 83 C. 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 Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Satin Perfecting Micro-Powder ($45 at Sephora) in the shade 2 Medium.
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 Revealed Rouge Palette ($20 on the Coastal Scents website) from Coastal Scents. For my transition shade I used the color Adore Me (a warm toned camel matte), I used this shade from lash to brow bone all over the lid. For my crease shade I used the color Amazing (an orange based brown matte). For my mobile lid I used the shade Sundance (dusty copper metallic) and then deepened the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and my outer v I used the shade Stand Out (a mid-toned neutral brown matte). I then went into the shade Jack-O-Lantern (an orange gold metallic) and pat that over the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid lightly to blend the inner and outer 1/3 together. For my lower lash line I used more of the shade Adore Me and then warmed the lower lash line up a bit using more of the shade Amazing. I then darkened the lash line using more of the shade Stand Out and then used more of the shade Lantern to add a bit of depth to the lash line. I highlighted the inner corners first using the shade Shiny (an icy vanilla) and then going over that with more of the shade Jack-O-Lantern. I lined my lower waterlines using Charlotte Tilbury Eye Powder Pencil ($22 at Sephroa) 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 first the shade Peach Party (a slightly peachy vanilla matte) and then went into more of the shade Shiny to add some shine to the brow bone. I popped on a paid of Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes ($11.99 for a 2 pack at Ulta) in the style Shy and then I 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 Seduce (a rosey nude 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 Rachh Loves X Pixi The Layers Highlighting Palette ($24 at Target). I used the shade Knit (a rosey gold) for the tops of my cheeks, cupid’s bow and high points of the brows, I used the a combo of the shade Knit with Lacy (icy pink with a silver flip) for the chin and bridge of the nose. I then used the shade Clutch (Light Champagne) to brighten the Cupid’s Bow further. I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade BFF 2 (mid-tone nude brown) and topped off my lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade Kapish (dusty warm brown matte).
Final Thoughts: Last night I had myself a little spa day. I used rice powder to exfoliate my face and then honey and rice flour to do a deep moisturizing and anti aging face mask. I learned how to make my own rice water, powder, and flour on YouTube this past week so I thought I would put it to the test …. I’ve got to say …. I am really loving how bright my face looks now. I have been really big into my skin care exploration this past week … I guess that’s one way to pass the monotony of being stuck in the house. I think tonight I may try giving myself a mani/pedi.
Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope and pray you are in good health, good spirits, are safe, and have a great rest of your day/night. Remember…. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
