Hey doll hey!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I didn’t get to sleep last night (well this morning) until 5 AM… and I awoke around 10:15 AM … so needless to say I am extremely fatigued and in a heap of pain.
Today’s perfume is JLo Glow…. 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 Believe Beauty All Over Glow Illuminator ($5 only at Dollar General Stores) in the shade Golden Glow. My foundation I chose today was ColourPop No Filter Foundation ($12 on their website) in the shade Medium 100. 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.
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 $15) in the shade Rumour 0.5. and then set the brow line using Wet n Wild Color Icon Single Shadow ($.99 at Walgreens) in Sugar (icy white pearl). For today’s eye look I used the new ColourPop Mulan Palette ($22 on their website). I started with the shade Fighter (peachy beige matte) to warm up the crease from crease to brow line. I then went into the shade Strength (rich terracotta matte) for the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the outer v of the crease. I then went into the shade Loyal (rich red with gold flex foiled) and patted that over the middle 1/3 of my mobile lid. I then took the shade Like A Girl (silver taupe metallic) and patted that over the inner 1/3 of the mobile lid. I then took a small definer brush and a bit more of the shade Loyal and feathered out the edges of the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid. I then took the shade Guiding Spirit (deep red brown matte) and further defined the very outer part of the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the outer v of the crease. For the lower lash line I created a soft drop shadow with more of the shade Fighter and then I took more of the shade Strength and warmed up the lash line. I then defined the lash line using more of the shade Guiding Spirit. I high lighted my inner corners using the shade Strike A Match (icy champagne with pinpoints of bronze metallic). 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 blush today I am wearing ColourPop Pressed Powder Blush ($12 on their site) in the shade Good Luck Charm (soft terracotta with gold pearl satin). On my lips today I lined and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Brink (terracotta rose) and then I filled in my lips with ColourPop Creme Lux Lipstick ($9 on their website) in the shade Hua Mulan (rosey pink).
Well that’s it for now dolls. I 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.
