Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I didn’t sleep that well last night and today I’m in a loads of pain. I also couldn’t get to my blog post until just now (8 PM) because our neighbor had the cable people fixing their line and they accidentally severed our cable line and so we had to wait from 2 PM till 7 PM for a service tech to come out and fix the line.
Since I am not feeling good today I did a low maintenance look. My perfume today is Kate Spade Live Colorfully. Let’s jump into today’s Face of the Day …
Base: I first primed my problematic pore areas with Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta) and then primed the full face using It Cosmetics Pores No More Primer (discontinued) and I then added a bit of glow to the skin by using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44 at Sephora and the Beautylish website). My foundation today is Tarte Maracuja Tinted Moisturizer ($29 at Ulta) in the shade 20N Light Neutral. I contoured using Charlotte Tilbury Contour Wand ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Medium/Dark. I highlighted the tops of my cheek bones, bridge of the nose, center of the chin, and high points of my forehead using Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand ($38 on the Beautylish website). I concealed my under eyes using 3 dots of NYX Born to Glow Radiant Concealer ($9 at Ulta) in the shade Fair. I set my under eyes using Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eyes ($28 at Ulta) in the shade 1 and then set the rest of my face using the 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 Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder ($4 at Walmart) in the shade 011 creamy natural as my touch up powder today.
Eyes: I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in clear and then filled in my brows using my professional brow powder that I get from my brow lady ($10 at Oh La La Brow Bar) in the shade Dark Brown. 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 Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Palette ($45 at Ulta and Sephora). I kept it simple today. I used the shade Maple (warm caramel brown matte) all through the crease an than I used the shade Shimmering Pearl (gold with a slight pink shift metallic) all over the mobile lid. For the lower lash line I used more of the shade Maple and than I layered the shade Golden Light (antique gold metallic) over the top and layered more of Maple over the top of that to give the under eye a bit of movement. I highlighted the brow line using the shade Swan (eggshell matte). I lined my lower waterlines using BH Cosmetics Powder Pencil (originally on sale for $8 but on sale for $6 on their website) in the shade Beige Nude. I then coated my upper lashes with 2 coats of Milani Dangerous Lengths Mascara ($9.99 at Ulta) and then for my lower lash line I didn’t want the lashes to be too harsh so I used Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in dark brown as a lower lash mascara. I highlighted my inner corners using Hikari Creme Pigment ($15 on their website) in the shade Honey Dew. I then went over my crease with whatever was left on the brush that I applied my mobile lid color with to give it just a hint of glow.
Cheeks and Lips: For blush today I am wearing Tarte 12-HR Amazonian Clay Blush ( $29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Captivating (peach matte). I lined and filled in my lips using NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner ($4 at Ulta) in the shade Wipped Caviar (a reddish pink nude) and then topped that off with L’Oreal Rouge Signature Lightweight Matte Lip Stain ($5.99 at Ulta) in the shade 448 I-Tease (a soft taupey pink matte) and felt that this was too muted so I tapped a few dots of Makeup Geek Creme Stain ($11.99 on their website) in the shade Jitterbug (an intense coral matte) and then I felt that this was too dry looking so I topped the whole lip off using NARS Lip Gloss ($24 on the NARS website) in the shade Chihuahua (Sheer Guava).
Final Thoughts: I planed the next 2 weekend’s family breakfast meal. Every weekend we sit down at the dinning room table and have a big breakfast. This week and next week’s Family Breakfast is Disney themed. For tomorrow’s breakfast I am making Disney’s Chef Mickey Breakfast Pizza and next week I’m making Disney’s Crystal Palace Breakfast Lasagna.
Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in great spirits. Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
