Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. To all my mothers out there Happy Mother’s Day …. hope you have a great one.
I over slept again today. I think my body is trying to catch up since I hadn’t been sleeping well the past few days. I woke up with less pain but low energy so hubby told me to stay out of the kitchen today. He bought us lunch and now he has bought us dinner in the form of my favorite Chinese dishes .
Today I got to play around with some of my new beauty purchases and will have a review in final thoughts.
For today’s perfume I chose Gucci Bamboo. So let’s jump into today’s Face of the Day …
I first primed my problematic pore areas with Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta) and then primed the full face using Makeup Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer ($37 at Sephora) in Smoothing. For my foundation today I used Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Coverage Foundation ($43 at Sephora) in the shade Y235 Ivory Beige (for light skin with neutral undertones). I contoured using NYX Wonder Stick ($12 at Ulta) in the shade Medium. 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) and then I went in with just a touch of Essence Pure Nude Highlighter ($4.99 at Ulta) in the shade Be My Light to set the high points of my face. I concealed my under eyes using Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Liquid Concealer ($32 at Sephora) in the shade 3 Fair. I warmed up the perimeter of my face using Tarte Breezy Cream Bronzer ($29 on the Tarte website) in the shade Grace Bay (deep matte bronze). 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 topped off the perimeter of my face using a light layer of MAC Bronzing Powder ($30 at MAC) in the shade Matte Bronze. I chose the Flower Beauty Light Illusion Perfecting Powder ($13.99 at Ulta) in the shade Beige L4-M1.
I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in clear and then filled in my brows using Joah Brow Down To Me Precision Brow Pencil ($9.50 on their website) in the shade Brunette. I carved out the brow line using BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side 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 $15) in the shade Rumour 0.5 and I set the whole eye space using Wet n Wild Color Icon Shadow Single ($.99 at Walgreens) in the shade Creme Burlee (a flesh toned matte). For today’s eye look I used the ColourPop She’s Got Solstice Palette ($14 at Ulta and Ulta online only). I started off with the shade Nova (nude clay matte) all through the crease up to the brow line. I then went into the shade Quasar (coral terracotta matte) and used that on the outer 1/2 of the mobile lid and the outer v of the crease. I then went into the shade Marz (icy moss with a silver flip metallic) and placed that over the inner 1/2 of my mobile lid. I then went into the shade Chromosphere (deep red brown matte) and tapped that into the outer 1/3 of my mobile lids and the very outer part of the outer v of the crease. For my lower lash line I went back into the shade Nova and created a drop shadow and then back into the shade Quasar and applied it along the lash line and buffed it down a bit and then I topped the lash line off with more of the shade Chromosphere. I highlighted my inner corners using Essence Pure Nude Highlighter ($4.99 at Ulta) in the shade Be My Light. 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 coated my upper and lower lashes with 1 coat of MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara ($20 at Ulta).
Cheeks and Lips:
I applied my blush with the rest of my cream products since I was using Tarte Sugar Rush Beach Cheeks Cream Blush ($15 on their website) in the shade Beaches & Cream (a peachy pink). I lined and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Another Round (rosey nude) and then topped my lips off using ColourPop Lippie Stix ($7 on their website) in the shade Topanga (dusty coral creme).
I had a little money left in my beauty budget so I purchased a few more things thing month … I will be hauling them just as soon as they arrive.
Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits.
Remember …. Save a spoon for a little lipstick.
