Laid-Back Face of the Day

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I slept in a bit because I was up late making more masks for my hubby’s crew at work.

Some of the masks that I made last night…. Still working on some masks for my extended family and am currently waiting on more fabric and elastic to be delivered. 


Today’s beauty haul … My Bioderma, a new face toner, a new face wash, and some collagen eye masks.

I woke up feeling just a bit off today. My head hurts and I feel very fatigued so I decided to do a quick laid-back makeup look. Today I am wearing Kate Spade Live Colorfully perfume. Let’s jump into this Face of the Day ….

I’ve noticed today just how much growth I have in my lashes, I wish I could find an eye lash comb that would separate the lashes… I have a Real Techniques lash rake but it doesn’t separate the lashes that well …


Base:                                                                                                                                                         I primed my face today using 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), 5 literal drops of L’Oreal True Match Lumi Glow Amour ($14.99 at Ulta) in the shade 507 Day Break, and 4 pumps of Benefit Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation ($30 at Ulta) in the shade 4. I color corrected using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 at Target) in the shade Brightening Peach. I concealed my under eyes using Flower Beauty Light Illusion Full Coverage Concealer ($10 at Ulta) in the shade L3-4 Light. 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 Pixi by Petra Colour Correcting Powder Foundation ($20 at Target) in the shade NO. 2 Nude.


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 ELF The New Classics Palette ($14 on their website). For my crease color I chose the color Darling (a mid-toned yellow based camel matte). For my mobile lid I used the shade Glamour (an icy vanilla with a golden shift metallic). I then tapped my brush into the shade Gilded (a soft peridot metallic) and dusted it lightly onto my crease shade to add a bit more dimension. On the lower lash line I used more of the shade Darling and kept it close to the lash line and buffed it out with a clean fluffy brush. For my inner corner highlight I used the shade Blanc (icy white metallic).  I lined my lower and upper 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 the shade Creme (a vanilla matte). I coated my upper and lower lashes with L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($8.99 at Ulta).


Cheeks and Lips:                                                                                                                               For my blush and highlight I used the Catrice California in a Box Palette () in the color way 010 Malibu Beach. The blush is the 2nd shade on the top row (a rosey coral 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 highlighter shade (a soft champagne). I lined and filled in my lips using Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat ($22 at Sephora) in the shade Pillow Talk (a soft pink nude) and topped my lips off using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($7 on their website) in the shade Slacker ( soft salmon creme).


Final Thoughts:                                                                                                                                      I know I’ve been using my Benefit Hoola bronzer a heap this past week or so … I hit pan on it a few weeks ago and since I have 2 hoola bronzers … the one I hit pan on and the one that is in my Babe on Board palette … I decided to use up the one I hit pan on so that I can have an open space in my bronzer collection to move one of the bronzers from my over flow into that slot.

Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you are all healthy, in good spirits, and enjoying the rest of your day/night. I’ve placed a small Beautylish order…. I ordered a few new Charlotte Tilbury items and some more serums and a new BECCA Backlight Priming Filter as I am almost out of the one I have. I’ll haul them as soon as I receive it … I only just placed my order today. In the meantime dolls …. Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
