Saturday’s Halo Smokey Eye Face of the Day

Published May 17, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I had a full day Saturday so I wasn’t able to get to my daily post until just now (12:15 AM).

I’ve been running errands all day and then I had myself a little craft day. I did a bunch of tie dyed outfits today. (more on that in another post).

Today’s perfume is Davidoff Cool Waters… Let’s jump into Saturday’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 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 I chose was Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick ($46 at Sephora) in the shade Buff. 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 Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Concealer High Coverage Concealer ($5.99 at Ulta) in the shade 005 Light Natural. 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.

Eyes:

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 look I used the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals Vol. 1 Palette ($48 on their website)… I’m getting anxious because I have now hit pan on 2 of the shades in this palette and they are still currently out of stock. I started by setting the brow line using the shade Aura Matte  (vanilla). I then went in with the shade Soothe Matte (camel) to warm up the crease (from crease to brow line). I then went in with a mid-sized fluffy blender brush and the shade Ritual Matte (rich chocolate) on the inner and outer 1/3 of the lid from lash line to brow line. I then took whatever was left on the brush that I used Soothe with and buffed out the harsh line at the brow line buffing the 2 shades together at the top of the middle 1/3 of the lid. I then went in with the shade Story Metallic (bright nectarine with gold shimmer) and patted that on the very center of the middle 1/3 of the lid from lash to brow line. I then took a small definer brush and more of the shade Ritual Matte and buffed it into the outer edges of the middle 1/3 of the lid from lash to brow line. For the lower lash line I used more of the shade Soothe Matte along the lower lash line and then deepened it up using more of the shade Ritual Matte and then to add a bit of warmth and to try in the halo part of this look to the lower lash line I used a hint of Story Metallic in the very center of the lower lash line and then took the shade Story Matte (burnt orange) and smudged it as close as possible to the lashes. I highlighted my inner corners with Urban Decay Single Eyeshadow ($20 at Ulta) in the shade Midnight Cowboy (pink champagne with silver reflects). 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.

Cheeks and Lips:

For my blush I used the MAC Powder Blush ($25 only at MAC) in the shade Pinch O’ Peach (a peachy coral matte). I lined and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Brink  (terracotta rose) and then topped my lips off with ColourPop Creme Lux Lipstick ($8 on their website) in the color Lay Over ( medium rosy beige).

Final Thoughts:

I finally got my ColourPop order and it was so worth the long wait!!! I’ll be posting a makeup haul post shortly.

I also received my Juvia’s Place order and the palettes are so freaking amazing!

I’ll be up for a little longer tonight… I have 2 more cycles of wash to do (I have to wash out the dye from 2 more colors) so I’ll post my haul and also my 2 month brow check in.

Because I’ll be up late I might not be able to do a face of the day for Sunday…. It’s will depend on what time I actually get out of bed and how my body feels when I do.

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 dolls…. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO
