Hey doll hey!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I woke up today at a decent time but awoke to a nasty little headache. My pain level is moderate today and my energy level is pretty good today too.
Today I am wearing Burberry Britt again. 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. I then went in with the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44 at Sephora) in the shade 3 Light Medium. My foundation today is Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation (discontinued) in the shade LN 4. I contoured using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand ($38 at Sephora, on the Beautylish website, and on the Charlotte Tilbury website) in the shade Medium Dark to contour the perimeter of my face and down the bridge of my nose. 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 Benefit Boxed Highlighter ($30 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade cookie to set the high points of my face. I concealed my under eyes using Revolution Beauty Supersize Conceal and Define Full Coverage Concealer ($10 on their website) in the shade C 6.5. 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. For today’s eye look I used the Juvia’s Place Nubian 3 Coral Palette ($20 at Ulta and on the Juvia’s Place website) and 2 shades from the Juvia’s Place The Nudes by Juvia palette ($14 at Ulta and on the Juvia’s Place website). I started with the Nudes palette and went into the 1st shade of the 2nd row (light rose matte) and ran that all through my crease all the way to the brow line. I then went into the Nubian 3 palette and took the 4th shade of the 2nd row (dusty coral tan matte) and ran that through the crease and stopped just a little lower than the brow line. I then took the 4th shade of the 3rd row (deep-toned peachy coral matte) and buffed that into the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the outer v of the crease. I then went into the 3rd shade of the 3rd row (peachy coral metallic with a slight gold flip metallic) and patted that on the remain 2/3 of the mobile lid. I then went into the 1st shade of the 2nd row (a mid-toned deep reddish terracotta metallic) and patted that over the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid to blend the inner and outer 1/3’s together. I then went into the 2nd shade of the 2nd row (warm toned deep brown matte) and buffed that into the very outer part of the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the very outer part of the outer v of the crease to just add a hint of definition. I created a subtle drop shadow on the lower lash line starting with more of the dusty coral tan shade and then deepened the lash line using more of the deep-toned peachy coral shade. I then used the light rose shade from the Nudes palette to buff the harsh lines away. To highlight my inner corners I used the 1st shade of the 1st row of the Nudes palettes (peachy champagne with a slight silver flip metallic). To highlight the brow line I used the L’Oreal 24-HR Infallible Eyeshadow ($9.49 at CVS and on Amazon) in the shade #899 Endless Pearl (vanilla matte). I lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Get Paid (rose gold metallic) and created medium sized wing along the upper lash line using ColourPop Creme Gel Colour ($7 on their website) in the shade Swerve (jet black). I coated my upper and lower lashes with 1 coat of Benefit Roller Lash Mascara ($25 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Black.
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 Brink (terracotta rose) and then tapped a bit of L’Oreal Rouge Signature Lightweight Matte Lip Stain ($5.99 at Ulta) in the shade I Create (a pale dusty coral) over the top.
I really love that I have a beauty fridge!! It’s so tiny and keeps my skin care super cool. This means there is longevity in the active ingredients and there’s the added anti-inflammatory benefit since the products are cold.
I am going to do another post tonight. I’m making Bacalao Guisido (Stewed Salted Cod) for supper and it’s one of my hubby’s favorite dishes.
Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.
Remember…. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
