Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. Today I woke up craving a soft pretzel so much!! I found a recipe on line that I think I’m going to try and do today. I just have to get to the store and buy some dry active yeast.
Today I decided to wear Liz Claiborne Realities perfume which has top notes of : chamomile, Osmanthus (Devilwood… a small tree in the olive family), Sage, and Bergamot , middle notes of Bulgarian Rose, Carnation, Freesia, Jasmine, and Lily, and end with base notes of Sandalwood, Amber, Peach, and Vanilla. Well …. let’s dive into today’s Face of the Day …..
I primed my face using Fenty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Primer ($32 at Sephora) and prepped my pores using Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta and Sephora). I contoured using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand ($38 at Sephora and on the Beautylish website) in the shade Medium/Deep. I then did my foundation using Physician’s Formula The Healthy Foundation (Discontinued but can be found on Amazon) in the shade LN4. I bronzed up the face using Fenty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer ($32 at Sephora) in the shade 05 Teddy (tan skin tones). I highlighted the high points of my face using the BECCA Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter ($38 for 1.5 fluid ounces of product at Ulta) in the shade Passion (pale, iridescent pearl that reflects gold). I color corrected using BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector ($32 on their website) in the shade light/medium and then concealed my under eyes using Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Concealer (Discontinued) in the shade R22. I set my under eyes using Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder ($28 at Sephora and Ulta). I set the rest of my face using BECCA Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder ($39) in the original shade. I touched up the bronzer on my face using the BECCA Sunlit Bronzer ($38 on their website) in the shade Ipanema Sun (medium auburn brown). For touch ups I am using BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder (Originally $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 then filled in my bows using ELF Lock On Liner & Brow Cream ($4 on their website) in the shade Medium Brown. I carved out my brows and primed my lids using the P.Louise Base ($10 GBP/ $12.79 USD on their website) in the shade #02 Rumour. For today’s eye look I used the Catrice Cosmetics Basic Bae Palette ($14.99 at Ulta). I started by setting my brow line with the shade #Basic (ivory – matte). For my transition shade I used the color #Squad (soft peachy – matte). For the outer 1/3 of my mobile lid and the crease I used the shade #MOTD (mid-toned orange based brown – matte). I deepened the outer part of the mobile lid and the outer v of the crease using the shade #MCM (warm red based brown – mattte). For the remaining 2/3 of the mobile lid I first cut the crease with more of the P.Louise Base and then used the shade #Goals (Golden Champagne – shimmer) and then topped that off with ELF Liquid Glitter Eyeshadow ($5 on their website and at Ulta) in the shade Flirty Birdy (a rose gold base with silver glitter). For my lower lash line I created a drop shadow using more of the shade #MCM (warm red based brown – mattte) and then I deepened the lower lash line using the shade #TBT (cool toned deep brown – matte). I then went in with a touch of the shade #ExtraAF (aged gold bronze – shimmer) over the inner 1/2 of the lower lash line and then I buffed more of #MCM (warm red based brown – mattte) over that to just add a bit of dimension. I highlighted the inner corners of my eyes using Juvia’s Place The Tribe Highlighter Vol. 3 and then I lined my upper and lower waterlines using Sephora 12HR Colorful Contour Eye Pencil ($11 at Sephora) in the shade Cocoa (Chocolate Brown). I coated my lower and upper lashes using NYX On the Rise Volume Liftscara ($11 at Ulta).
Cheeks and Lips:
For blush I used Fenty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush ($20 at Sephora) in the shade 06 Daiquiri Dip (soft coral red). I set the cream blush with the lightest hint of Revolution Blusher Reloaded ($7 on their website and at Ulta) in the shade Peaches & Cream (a dusty peach – matte). I touched up my highlight and highlighted the Cupid’s Bow using Juvia’s Place The Tribe Highlighter Vol. 3. I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Obvi (light pinkish brown). I filled in my lips using ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip ($8 on their website – was a collab with Kathleen Lights) in the shade Moon Child (pinky nude with gold glitter).
I didn’t wear falsies today … I needed to give my lashes a little break from lash glue and I think this look is better without lashes.
I still haven’t figured out what I want to purchase for next month’s beauty buys … any suggestions would be helpful. I’d love to review something you’ve been keen to try.
Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in goo spirits and health.
Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
