Hey doll hey!!! Hope you are having a great day/night! I’m doing OK… I am in a heap of pain but I got good sleep last nigh. I really didn’t have a look in mind for today so I decided to so a semi-fresh faced look.
Today I am wearing Elizabeth Arden Red Door Revealed perfume. Let’s jump right into today Face of the Day ….
Base: I primed my face using Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer ($54 at Sephora) and just a tad bit of Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta) around the pores of my cheek area. I used the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44 on the Beautylish website) in the shade #3 Light/Medium to give my skin that lit from within glow. For foundation today I am using L’Oreal Infallible 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation ($14.99 at Ulta) in the shade 420 True Beige. I took the Hollywood Flawless Filter up under my under eyes so I chose not to use a color corrector today instead I just used 3 little dots of Joah Wand Me Up Perfecting Concealer ($6.50 on their website and at CVS) in the shade Ivory. I contoured using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand ( $38 on the Beautylish website) in the shade 2 Medium/Dark… I used it around the perimeter of my forehead, hollows of the cheeks, and the bridge of my nose. I then highlighted the bridge of my nose, cupid’s bow, tops of the cheeks, center of the chin, and high points above my brows using the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand ($39 on the Beautylish website). I then warmed up the perimeter of my face using Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Cream Bronzer ($50 on their website) in the shade Universal Tan. I then set my full face using Believe Beauty Matte Blur Loose Powder ($5 only at Dollar General) in the shade Translucent. I am using Flower Beauty Light Illusion Perfecting Powder ($13.99 at Ulta) in the shade L4-M1 Beige as my setting powder.
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. For today’s eye look I used Flower Beauty Light Illusion Perfecting Powder ($13.99 at Ulta) in the shade L4-M1 Beige as the base for this look and also to sheer out the crease color so that it looked more skin like. I applied this powder from lash to brown and then went into the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals Vol 1 palette ($48 on her website). I started with my mobile lid and I applied the shade Aura Sequin (vanilla with fuchsia pin points) and then I added a little of Aura Metallic (champagne shimmer) to the inner 1/3 and to the inner corners as a highlight. For my crease shade I used Soothe Sequin (camel with gold pin points) and then I went over that with the Flower Beauty powder to soften the color. I lined my upper and lower waterlines using Charlotte Tilbury The Classic Eye Powder Pencil ($22 at Sephora) in the shade Audrey (classic brown). I then used this liner to created a baby wing on my upper lash line. I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in clear and then filled in my brows using Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil ($24 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade 4.5 and then 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 Matt Malloy (pure bright white matte) from The Balm Meet Matt(e) Nude palette ($30 on the Brigette’s Boutique website). I coated my upper and lower lashes with 1 coat of Milani Dangerous Lengths Mascara ($9.99 at Ulta).
Cheeks and Lips: Since I did the cream highlighter and was really loving the effect of it I chose not to use powder highlighter today. For blush today I chose Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-HR Blush ($29 at Sephora) in the shade Blissful (bright rose matte). I lined my lips using NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner ($4 at Ulta) in the shade Wipped Caviar (a reddish pink nude). I topped the lips off using MAC Satin Lipstick ($19 at Ulta) in the shade Brave (pink-beige with white pearl).
Final Thoughts: I really loved the way this look turned out. In real life it’s super subtle and ethereal looking. The Charlotte Tilbury eyeliner on the upper lash line is soft and delicate compared to a liquid liner would be. It’s the first time I tried using a pencil liner on the upper lash line… I normally use either a liquid or a gel liner… I really am digging the way it looks.
I got one of my Ulta orders today so I will be doing a haul post shortly. I have 1 more Ulta order coming Monday (that one is just a little order, I think I have a glow primer, a loose powder, and an eye shadow palette in that order). I’m also waiting on a foundation that I ordered from Il Makiagee.
Well that’s all for now dolls. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in great spirits and great health. Remember dolls …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
