Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m having a pretty good day. Low pain and moderate energy leaves.
I woke up wanting to do a smokey spring time look and this was what I came up with.
I also woke up yesterday to find out this little makeup/fibro warrior blog hit a milestone!!! I have hit 500 subscribers!! Well 508 to be exact but I am so over the moon over it!! It’s been a long, slow road to 500 (I started my blog back in 2011) with many starts and stops along the way… but this little milestone has made me so happy!! Thank you all for following me…. I can’t express just how much your support has made me feel and how much it’s truly appreciated.
For today’s look I used the ColourPop Wild Nothing Palette again.
Today’s scent is YSL Parisienne. The scent notes are:
- Top Notes: Cranberry and Black Berry.
- Middle Notes: Damask Rose, Violet, Peony and Leather.
- Bottom Notes: Patchouli, Sandalwood, Musk, and Vetiver
- Subtle Finishing Notes: Vinyl and Lacquer
Let’s jump into the walk through of today’s Face of the Day …..
I primed my face using HourGlass Veil Mineral Primer ($54 at Sephora). I used a touch of the Physicians Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer ($15.99 on their website) on the high points of my face and I used the Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta) on my pores. I contoured my face using the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Medium/Deep. For foundation today I used Urban Decay Stay Naked Weightless Liquid Foundation ($39 at Ulta) in the shade 40NN (light/medium neutral). I bronzed my face using Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel (discontinued) in the shade Universal Tan. I color corrected my under eyes using BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector ($32 at Ulta) in the shade Light to Medium. For concealer I used Il Makiage F*uck I’m Flawless Multi-use Perfecting Concealer ($26 on their website) in the shade #2.5. I highlighted the high points of my face using Believe Beauty All Over Glow in the shade Forbidden Kiss. I set my under eyes using the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder ($28 at Ulta and Sephora). I set the rest of my face using ELF Halo Glow Setting Powder ($8 on their website) in the color Light. I touched up the bronzer using BECCA Sunlit Bronzer ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Ipanema Sun (medium auburn-brown). For touch ups I am using ELF Beautifully Bare Finishing Powder ($6 at Ulta) in the shade Fair/Light
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 Milani Stay Put Brow Color ($8.49) in the shade Dark Brown. I carved out my brows and primed my lids using P Louise Base ($13.07 on their website or at Morphe’s website ) in the shade Rumour. For today’s eye look I used the ColourPop Wild Nothing Palette (regularly $18 but on sale for $13.50 on their website). I first set my brow line using Wet n Wild Color Icon Single Shadow ($.99 at Walgreens) in the color Sugar (icy white – shimmer). As my transition shade I used Morningside (muted mid-toned peach – matte). I warmed up the crease using a touch of my BECCA Sunlit Bronzer ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Ipanema Sun (medium auburn-brown). For the outer 1/3 of my mobile lids and the outer v of the crease I used a combo of the shades Come Together (mid-tone brown – matte) and No Bounds (blackened brown – matte). For the middle 1/3 of the mobile lids I used the shade Hot Springs (soft berry with pinpoints of silver and gold pearl – sequin matte). For the inner 1/3 of the mobile lids I used the shade Coastline (icy tangerine – metallic). For my lower lash lines I first created a drop shadow using my BECCA Sunlit Bronzer ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Ipanema Sun (medium auburn-brown). I then added just a touch of the shade Come Together (mid-tone brown – matte) to add some dimension. I highlighted the inner corners of my eyes using a combo of the shades Salton (white gold with pinpoints of gold and silver pearl – super shock) and Spirited (warm taupe with pinpoints of silver and gold pearl – super shock). I tight lined my upper and lower waterlines using Pixi By Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen ($12 at Ulta) in the shade Black Caviar (deep brown). I coated my upper and lower lashes in Physicians Formula Eye Booster Lash Contortionist Mascara ($6.98 on Amazon) and popped on a pair of Alter Ego False Lashes ($5 on their website) in the style Flare.
Cheeks and Lips:
For my cheeks today I chose NYX Bare With Me Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Jelly Cheek Tint ($10 at Ulta) in the shade Coral Dream (bright coral). I set that lightly using Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-HR Blush ($29 at Ulta) in the shade Captivating (bright peach). To touch up my highlighter I used BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Champagne Pop (soft gold with pinky-peach pearl). I lined and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil (regularly $6 but on sale now for $4.50) in the shade Love Bug (rich mahogany) and then I topped the lips off with ColourPop Lippie Stix ($115 on their website but currently sold out) in the shade Cherry Bomb (bright pink lemonade – matte).
I went a touch to blunt with my cheek contour today… I tried a new brush to contour with … I didn’t like the way it laid the product down. I couldn’t get the harshness to buff out either so I will just go though the day as normal since I’m not really going anywhere.
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.
