Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I woke up around 8:30 AM but was in a world of pain for I decided that I would just do a “No Makeup” makeup look since it doesn’t take me long to do and it’s simple and I really need to rest my body so I don’t end up hurting worse. I also didn’t sleep very well so the lines under my eyes are very pronounced today … nothing I could do about that, well I could have done a Collagen eye mask treatment but I just don’t have the energy for the extra step today.
I will also be reviewing 2 new products in today’s Final Thoughts….
Today I’m wearing Versace Red Jeans perfume. Let’s jump into today’s 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 slightest amount of 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 Tarte Maracuja Tinted Hydrator ($29 at Ulta) in the shade 20N Light Neutral. I took this up under my eyes as well since it’s such a light weight product. I chose not to contour today since the base is so light weight I thought it might be too heavy to contour. I highlighted the high points of my face using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand ($39 on the Beautylish website). I then lightly concealed my under eyes using 5 of the tiniest dots of Tarte Creaseless Concealer ($26 at Ulta) in the shade 20N Light. I then set my full face using Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent. I then warmed up the perimeter of my face using Tarte Limited Edition Park Ave Princess Waterproof Face & Body Bronzer ($34 at Ulta). I am using Flower Beauty Light Illusion Perfecting Powder ($13.99 at Ulta) in the shade L4-M1 Beige as my setting powder.
Eyes: Today I started with my brows. 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 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 I also used a little of this to cut my brow line. For today’s eye look I used the ColourPop Bare Necessities Palette ($34 on their website). I took a combo of the shades On Holiday (soft beige matte) and Hustler (light peach matte) and used it all through my crease up to almost touching the brow bone. I then took the shade Full Expose (creamy vanilla matte) and used that on my brow bone. For my mobile lid I used a combo of the shades Idol Hour (warm ivory with a pale peach sheen metallic) and Rumored (silvery taupe metallic). For the lower lash line I first used the shade Complicated (warm rust brown with gold pinpoints sequin shadow) and then I went back over it with more of the shade On Holiday to mute the intensity. I highlighted my inner corners using Hikari Cream Pigment ($15 on their website) in the shade Fairy Tale (icy white metallic). I coated my upper and lower lashes with 1 coat of Milani Dangerous Lengths Mascara ($9.99 at Ulta). I lined my upper and lower waterlines using Charlotte Tilbury The Classic Eye Powder Pencil ($22 at Sephora) in the shade Audrey (classic brown).
Cheeks and Lips: Once again I opted not to use a powder highlighter. I really have been enjoying this lit from within, skin like glow that I am getting from the Charlotte Tibury Beauty Light Wand. For blush today I am wearing Burt’s Bees Blush ($9.99 at Ulta) in the shade Bare Peach (a nude peach satin). I lined my lips using NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner ($4 at Ulta) in the shade Wipped Caviar (a reddish pink nude). I then topped my lips off with Il Makiage INFINITY LONG-WEAR MATTE LIP CREAM ($22 on their website) in the shade Gala (a dusty pink coral matte).
Final Thoughts: I think this look would have been a bit better if I would have not done the eye liner and maybe not have done the mascara on the bottom lashes. To me it’s looking very bottom heavy. I may have to test that theory out tomorrow if I wake up not feeling good. I do have other products to try so I hope to be feeling well enough to do a more substantial look.
Now on to the product review….
Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good health and spirits. Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
