Smokey Neutral Face of the Day

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I was able to sleep well last night and woke this morning with less pain than I was in yesterday.

Today was family breakfast day. I made Disney Contemporary Chef Mickey’s Breakfast Pizza from a recipe that I found on the Disney Food Blog and I added sausage and bacon to the recipe … it was super yummy and super simple to make and look how yummy it looks:

what it looks like before you bake it
what it looks like after baking … and was super yummy

Today I am wearing my Bath and Body Works Champagne Rose body spray. Now let’s jump into this 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 NYX Angel Veil Primer ($16 at Ulta). I also prepped my face using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44 at Sephora and the Beautylish website). My foundation today is Il Makiage Woke Up Like This foundation ($44 on their website) in the shade 040. 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 5 dots of Benefit Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer ($22 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade No. 3. 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 MAC Bronzing Powder ($30 at MAC) in the shade Matte Bronze. 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  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 30 Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($34 on the ColourPop website). I started with the shade Velveteen (tawny brown matte) from lash line to brow bone. I then went into the shade Crack On (chestnut brown matte) and applied it on the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and outer v of the crease. For the remaining 2/3 of the mobile lid I used the shade Designer Duds (rose gold pink metallic) and then went into the shade Rumored (silvery taupe metallic) and tapped that over the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid and then went back into Designer Duds and blending it into the middle 1/3 to blend all the shades together. On the brow line I used a combo of the shades In the Buff (neutral pale pinky beige matte) and Full Exposé (creamy vanilla matte). For the lower lash line I did a drop shadow using more of the shade Crack On and then highlighted the inner corners using Idol Hour (warm ivory with a pale peach sheen 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:                                                                                                                               For my blush I did it a bit different today. I applied my blush with the rest of my cream products since I was using a Super Shock Cheek blush…. and then set it when I set the rest of my face and I think it gave me a pretty flushed look. I used ColourPop Super Shock Cheek ($8 on their website) in the shade Quarters (a mid-toned peachy coral satin). 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 Stripe Tease  (Sheer champagne nude).


Final Thoughts:

I got an email from ColourPop that says they will begin processing their back orders now!! Yahoo because I have 2 orders that I am waiting for and am stoked to try out that new Mulan palette.

I have a few beauty buys this month… not as many as last month because we are trying to stay above water with the bills… but I will have a few things to haul for you soon.


The reason I’m so late with my post today is I had to rest for a little bit and then I had to cook dinner. For tonight’s dinner I made Polish Meat and Potatoes   from . Mine didn’t come out as pretty as the picture on the website but dolls….. this is one tasty dish!!

Well that’s all for now dolls. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health. Remember dolls … save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
