Hey doll hey!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I woke up extremely late today. I was woken up around 3 AM to have to vomit …. and continued to vomit on and off until around 6 AM. I slept in until 1 PM and didn’t get started on my makeup until around 3:30 or 4 PM …. still vomiting on and off all day … not sure what it is …. but with my Fibromyalgia I do get days like this when I’m just vomiting for no reason. It could also be because of my wisdom tooth, which is going to be extracted next month. At any rate, needless to say, I am not having a good day ….
I wanted to play around with the JKissa X ELF To the Rescue Palette ($20 at Ulta) today and I have to say I really love the look I came up with.
Obviously I am not wearing and perfume today since my tummy is upset. Let’s jump into today’s Face of the Day …..
I primed my face using Too Faced HangoveRX ($34 at Ulta) and I primed my pore areas using Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta). I then used Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44 at Sephora) in the shade 3. For foundation today I chose a combo of 5 pumps of BECCA Backlight Priming Filter ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) and 3 Pumps of Il Makiage Woke Up Like This Flawless Base Foundation ($44 on their website) in the shade 040. I contoured the perimeter of my face and my nose using the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Medium/Dark. I bronzed my face using Tarte Breezy Cream Bronzer ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Grace Bay. I highlighted the high points of my face using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Spotlight. I concealed my under eyes using Makeup Revolution Supersize Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer ($7 at Ulta) in the shade C 6.5. I set my under eyes using Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder ($28 at Ulta and Sephora). I set my bronzer using Makeup Revolution Bronzer Reloaded ($7 at Ulta) in the shade Take a Vacation. I set my highlight using Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light color way and using the shade Glow. I set the rest of the face using Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Loose Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta) in the shade Translucent. For my setting powder I’ve chosen BH Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder (usually $9.50 but on sale for $4.75 on their website) in the shade 230.
I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 only at Dollar General stores) in clear and filled in my brows using NYX Micro Brow Pencil (regularly $10 but on sale for $7.50 at Ulta) in the shade Brunette. I carved out my brow line and primed my lids using the 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 eye look I used shades from the palette I created from CoulorPop and The JKissa X ELF To the Rescue Palette ($20 at Ulta). I started with the ColourPop palette. I used the shade Bel Air (cool taupe – matte) as my transition shade. I then used the shade Sea Stars (medium yellow brown – matte). I then switched to the JKiss X ELF Palette. I started with the middle 1/3 of my mobile lid and using the shade Millie (a true orange – matte). I then used the shade Casey (a true red – matte) on the inner 1/3 of the mobile lid and also buffed this shade a little into the middle 1/3 shade. I then went into the shade Yosemite (a true yellow – matte) and buffed that into the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the outer v of the crease. I kind of messed up on the lower lash line, I should have started with the green shade on the lower lash line but instead I started with the blue …. I forgot the order of the rainbow …. but I think it still looks pretty good. For the lower lash line I started on the middle 1/3 of the lash line and went into the shade Peaky (a true green – matte). I then went into the shade Cannoli (a bright light blue – matte) over the inner 1/3 of the lower lash line. For the outer 1/3 of the lower lash line I used the shade Sadie (a bright purple – matte). I then went back to the mobile lid and layered over the red shade with the shade Strawberry (a berry red – shimmer). I went over the orange with the shade Tsuki (an orange with slight silver reflect – shimmer). I went over the yellow with the shade Firefly (a yellow – shimmer). On the lower lash line I went over the blue with the shade Bailey (a bright blue – shimmer). I then went over the green with the shade Reagan (a bright green – shimmer). I went over the purple with the shade Confetti (a purple – shimmer). I then took a combo of the shae shades Sea Stars and Bel Air from my ColourPop palette and buffed that bellow the colors of the lower lash line to create a drop shadow effect. I highlighted the inner corners using the Dazzle shade from the Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light color way. I tight lined my upper and lower lash lines using the Milani Stay Put Waterproof Eyeliner ($7.99 on their website and at most drug stores like Walgreens and CVS) in the shade 01 Linked on Black. I coated the top and lower lashes with Benefit Roller Lash Mascara ($25 at Ulta and Sephora). I then popped on a pair of lashes I had in my lash case … I don’t remember what style they are in.
Cheeks and Lips:
For blush today I am wearing Tarte Sugar Rush Beach Cheeks Cream Blush ($15 at Ulta) in the shade Beaches and Cream (peachy pink). I set the cream blush using Makeup Revolution Blusher Reloaded ($7 at Ulta) in the shade Rhubarb & Custard (a coral matte). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippe Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Another Round (rosy nude). I then filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix (Only offered in the limited edition Big Box of Lippie Stix Vault from ColourPop and is no longer available) in the shade At Twilight ( warm muted coral – creme).
I placed a few orders on line for my June Beauty Buys.
I have a huge order coming from ELF that should be here by 6/25.
I have a skin care order and an eyeliner from Charlotte Tilbury coming from Beautylish that should be here by 6/26.
I have a smaller order from Makeup Revolution that should be here sometime this week – I made the mistake of ordering off the UK site intend of the US site so all of my items were shipped from over seas and I’m not sure how long that will take.
I also place an order from ColourPop (I created another 24 pan palette) and purchased one of their Ultra Gloss Lips and 2 pairs of false eye lashes) that should be here by 6/27.
So stay tuned for a huge Beauty Haul post.
Well I’m starting to feel queasy again so I’m going to end my post now. I hope tomorrow I’m feeling better. I really think it might be my wisdom tooth bothering.
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 dolls, Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
