Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I woke up around 8 AM today refreshed but in pain because it’s raining here in Florida.
This morning hubby surprised me with an amazon gift! He purchased me some new makeup storage units! Now all of my lip pencils have their own place and every palette has it’s own place. Before I was doubling up on slots for my palettes. He purchased me 4 more so now I have a total of 60 slots for palettes. He also purchased me 2 more small compact storage units too but they will not get here until Saturday … but then I will have enough storage units to sort my bronzers, face powders, blushes, and highlighters all in their own units!
Needless to say I spent the morning re-organizing my whole makeup collection … so I thought I’d share how it turned out with you before I start my Face of the Day ….
For today’s perfume I am wearing Marc Jacobs Daisy Twinkle. So, let’s get 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 today’s foundation I am wearing AOA Buildable Satin Foundation Drops ($1.88 on the Shop Miss A website) in the shade 305 pure beige. I chose not to add a glow primer today. 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 Dermablend Cover Care Full Coverage Concealer ($28 at Ulta) in the shade 15N (fair/light skin with neutral undertones). I chose not to use a cream bronzer today. 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 Mineralize Skinfinish ($36 at Ulta and MAC) in the shade Give Me Sun (light smmer peachy tan). 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 Imperial (nude taupe matte) all through the crease up to the brow line. I then went into the shade Honor (cool deep brown matte) on the outer 1/3 of the mobile lids and the outer v of the crease. I then went into the shade Warrior (warm terracotta undertone with silver/ green/ gold duo-chrome effect metallic) over the remaining 2/3 of the mobile lids. I then went over the outer 1/3 of the mobile lids again with more of the shade Honor to blend out the demarcation of the inner 2/3 of the mobile lid. I then intensified the very outer part of both the outer 1/3 and the outer v of the crease using the shade True (cool blacked brown matte). I highlighted my inner corners using the shade Like A Girl (silver taupe metallic). For the lower lash line I created a soft drop shadow using more of the shade Imperial. I deepened the drop shadow using more of the shade Honor and then deepened the lash line with more of the shade True. I then took a clean fluffy blender brush and buffed over the whole look to blend and soften the whole eye look. I tight lined my upper and lower waterlines using L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner ($8.99 at Ulta) in the shade Black and then created a micro-wing on the upper lash line using Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner ($22 at Ulta) in the shade Intense Black (jet black). I coated my upper and lower lashes with Physicians Formula Lash Contortionist Mascara (discontinued) in the shade Ultra Black. I popped on a pair of ObsidiancosmeticsUS handmade false lashes ($7.99 on her Etsy shop) in the style Beauty Queen.
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).
I am still awaiting my NYX order … It’s taking forever but I do understand that with this Covid-19 thing happening that the processing time is going to be slow.
Whilst I was re-organizing my makeup collection I set aside a few concealers and mascaras that I haven’t been liking much. I want to test them out over the next few weeks to see what if any I will be keeping or getting rid of…. more to come in a separate post about this.
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.
