Gold Glitter Moment Face of the Day

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I woke up with a massive headache today. I think my sinuses are acting up.

Today’s perfume is Giorgio Beverly Hills Wings. 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 used the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) as my glow lotion for the day. My foundation today is No 7 Protect & Perfect Advanced All in One Foundation ($15.99 on their website and at Target) in the shade Calico. I used a bit of Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 on their website and at Target) in the shade Brightening Peach for some light color correction and then went in with Joah Cosmetics Truly Yours Dark Circle Concealer ($8.50 at CVS and on their website) in the shade Neutralizer. 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 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 Wet n Wild Photofocus Pressed Powder ($5.47 on their website but on sale now for $3.57) in the shade Neutral Beige as my touch up powder for the day.



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 Strength (rich terracotta matte) all through the crease up to the brow line. I then went into the shade Legacy ( chocolate brown with gold pearl sequin shadow) and deepened the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the outer v of the crease. For the remaining 2/3 of the mobile lid I used the shade Be Swift (vibrant warm gold pressed pigment glitter). I then added just the lightest amount more of the shade Legacy to blend the harsh line between the 2 shades. I created a drop shadow on the lower lash line using more of the shade Strength and then deepened closest to the lash line using more of the shade Legacy. I then highlighted the inner corners using the shade Dazzle Too Faced Turn Up the Light face palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora). I tight lined both my upper and lower waterlines using L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner ($8.99 at Ulta) in the shade Black and then used 2 coats for the upper lashes and 1 for the lower lashes of The Balm What’s Your Type Mascara ($19 on their website).


Cheeks and Lips:

For blush today I am wearing ColourPop Pressed Powder Blush ($12 on their site) in the shade Matchmaker (pale nude 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 Obvi (light  pinkish brown) and then I filled in my lips with ColourPop Creme Lux Lipstick ($9 on their website) in the shade Hua Mulan (rosey pink).


Final Thoughts:

Initially I thought I wouldn’t like Matchmaker. It just came across like a shiny bronzer shade … but it does something magical on the checks! I’m not going to lie, I feel like a bronzed goddess in this blush. It’s super pretty and I didn’t need to build it up at all. I just love this collection it’s so beautifully perfected. 

So I’ve done 3 looks using all the shade but 4 … I don’t know that I can do a great look with the remaining 4 shades … so I think I will try it before I go to bed to see if I can make it work … If I can I will do a final look tomorrow with it, if I can’t I will be moving on the 1 of my newer Juvia’s Place palettes.

Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are both in good health and spirits.

Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
