Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Mine is going OK. I woke up early and my pain level is holding in the middle and my energy is pretty good today. My lower back hurts a heap because I was standing for a long time (I was tie dying a few new outfits).
Today I am not wearing any perfume because I woke with a headache. Let’s jump into today’s soft focus halo eye.
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 NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation ($49 at Sephora) in the shade Light 5 Fiji. 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 Glowgasm Light Wand ($38 on the Beautylish website, The Charlotte Tilbury website and at Sehora) in the shade Goldgasm 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 L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Concealer (9.99 at Ulta) in the shade 01 Classic Ivory. 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 then I set the brow line using the shade Matt Malloy (pure white matte) from the Balm Meet Matt(e) Nude palette (discontiuned, was limited edtion). 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). I went into the 2nd shade of the 2nd row (warm toned deep brown matte) and started on the outer 1/3 of the full eye lid I took this shade on a huge fluffy blender brush and buffed it from lash straight up to the brow line and then did the same thing on the inner 1/3 of the full lid and then with what ever was left on the brush I connected the inner and outer 1/3 of the lids at the brow line. I then went into the 4th shade of the 1st row (mid-toned copper metallic) and patted that over the full middle 1/3 of the lids from lash to just under the brow line (leaving a small amount of the first shade open). I then took a tiny fluffy blender brush and buffed the delineation lines between the inner 1/3 and middle 1/3 and middle 1/3 and outer 1/3 to leave the halo soft focused. I then dusted more of the warm deep brown shade onto my lower lash line and then I highlighted my inner corners with Urban Decay Single Eyeshadow ($20 at Ulta) in the shade Midnight Cowboy (pink champagne with silver reflects).I created a mid-sized wing using Joah I’m So Fly Brush Tip Eyeliner ($8.50 on their website) in black. I lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Get Paid (rose gold metallic. I coated my upper and lower lashes with 1 coat of Benefit Roller Lash Mascara ($25 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Black and then popped on a set of Kiss Looks So Natural Lash ($11.99 for a 5 pack at Ulta) in the style Shy.
Cheeks and Lips:
I applied my blush with the rest of my cream products since I was using ColourPop Super Shock Cheek ($8 on their website) in the shade Birthday Suit (neutral pink) I lined and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Brink (terracotta rose) and then used NARS Lip Gloss ($24 at Sephora) in the shade Dolce Vita (sheer dusty rose).
My ColourPop Mulan collection should arrive tomorrow!!!
The lashes I purchased from a shop on ETSY says that I should receive them tomorrow as well.
My Juvia’s Place order that I placed on their website also says that I should receive their package tomorrow as well!!
I also am excited that I tried my hand at tie dying! My first outfit is in the wash now and the 2nd outfit I made is cooling down so that I can rinse it out and then wash it. I’ll do a post on it if not later tonight then tomorrow.
Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.
Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
