Hey doll hey!! How’s you’re day/night going? Great I hope. I’m feeling pretty good today.
I haven’t really been able to do my makeup because I had a cold sore and didn’t want to cross contaminate my makeup but it cleared up the day before our anniversary so I was able to do my makeup for that day but I wasn’t able to do makeup since … have been having really bad R.A. pains.
Ok… enough about our anniversary …. on to the face of the day …. It wasn’t super glam because I really still was feeling too fatigued but I loved the way it came out.
I primed my lids using P. Louise Base in the shade Rumour (£10/ $13.68 USD). For this eye look I used the ColourPop and Disney Villains palette called Misunderstood ($24 on their website… currently sold out) and the ColourPop and Star Wars palette called The Mandalorian the Child ($16 on their website… currently sold out). I started with the Misunderstood palette for the transition the shade Tragic (soft warm beige – matte). My crease shade is Devious (terracotta – matte). My brow bone highlight shade is No Spots (pure white – matte). I then switched to Mandalorian palette and for the outer v I used the shade Float Your Crib (blackened olive – matte). On the outer 1/3 of my mobile lid I used the shade Little Frogs (olive with flecks of silver glitter – sequin matte). I then laid a base on the inner 2/3 of the mobile lid using the shade Baby Face (dusty mint – matte). I then applied the shade Sipping Soup (true moss green – metallic) over Baby Face and I then popped back into the Misunderstood palette and picked up the shade Diablo (lime – metallic) to pat over the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid to add just a bit more pop. For the lower lash line I kept it simple by just smoking out the lash line with more of the shade Float Your Crib. I highlighted the inner corners of the eyes using a combination of the shades Precious Cargo (opal gold with pinpoints of silver glitter – super shock shadow) and Right Hand Mando (icy moss with pinpoints of silver glitter – metallic). I lined my lower waterlines using the ColourPop BFF Crème Gel Liner (originally $6 but currently on sale for $4.50 on their website) in the shade Ice Breaker (pastel mint). I brushed some Eyebrow powder in the shade Dark Brown (it’s the one I get from my brow bar called Oh La La). I coated my lashes with 1 coat of Flower Beauty ($9.99 at Ulta) in Lash Warrior and I set the brows with a hint of hair gel.
I primed my face using Good Molecules Silicone Free Priming Moisturizer ($14 on the Beautylish and Good molecules websites). I contoured my face using Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Stick ($25 at Sephora) in the shade Mink (toasted almond). For foundation I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Foundation Stick ($25 on the Beautylish website) in the shade Porcelain (Fair skin with cool undertones). I color correcting using the BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector ($32 at Sephora) in the shade Light to Medium (pearlized peachy-pink). My concealer today is the NYX Can’t Stop Wont Stop Concealer ($8.50 at Ulta) in the shade Vanilla. I highlighted my cheek bones, chin, and temples using Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Spotlight (rose gold with silver light). I bronzed the high points of my face using Tate Sea Breezy Cream Bronzer ($29 at Sephora) in the shade Grace Bay. My blush was Fenty By Rhianna Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush ($20 at Sephora) in the shade Daiquiri Drip (soft coral red).
Cheeks and Lips:
I set my bronzer using HourGlass Ambient Lighting Bronzer ($52 at Sephora) in the shade Radiant Bronze Light (warm bronze shade ideal for medium/deep complexions). I set my blush with Makeup Revolution Blusher Reloaded ($7 on their website) in the shade Rhubarb & Custard (soft coral). I touched up my highlighter using Makeup Revolution Highlighter Reloaded ($7 at Ulta) in the shade Dare to Divulge (rose gold). I set my face using Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Ulta and Sephora).I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil (originally $6 but on sale for $4.50 on their website) in the shade Sow Happy (mid toned peachy nude) and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Stix (originally $7 but on sale for $5.25 on their website) in the shade FAB (mid toned peachy nude). I topped the center of my lips off with Natasha Denona Lip Oh-Phoria ($26 on the Beautylish website) in the shade Nude. For touch ups I chose Flower Beauty Light Illusion Perfecting Powder ($13.99 at Ulta) in the shade Beige L4-M1.
I give this eyeshadow palette a solid A+++!!!! : This palette is billed as a monochromatic olive green palette features a range of finishes from matte, metallic, and our iconic Super Shock formula. Create the cutest looks in the galaxy with the fun olives, golds, and neutral tones.
There was no kick back in the pans and no fallout on the face. The shades are just pigmented enough for my liking an buffed and blended together like butter. The metallics are super reflective and the mattes are creamy. It’s no big surprise that I would purchase this one … I mean Grogu is the cutest character on the planet.
I grade this eyeshadow palette a solid A++ : It’s billed as the palette to rule them all, Misunderstood. This mixed finish 15 pan eyeshadow palette combines intense mattes, colour shifting duochromes, and rich metallics. Scheme all the ways you’ll slay your look, it won’t be hard with this palette.
I really did like the shades I worked with. The mattes are creamy and the metallic was pretty (not as reflective as with the other palette, will try again with a base). There was little kickback in the pan and no fall out on the face. I didn’t grade this higher because there is just not enough variants in the palette to be cohesive but other than that it is a really pretty palette.
ColourPop BFF Crème Gel Liner in the shade Ice Breaker $6 (but on sale for $4.50) on their website
I grade this eyeliner a solid A+++!!! : It’s billed as The same pigmentation and long-lasting, transfer-proof wear of our Crème Gel Colour Eyeliner in a pencil!
I find that the BFF Crème Gel Liner formula a hit or miss. I have a few shades that do not show up on my waterlines (like Honey Dude and Joy Ride) yet others do. This one looks so cute on the waterline. It’s just pastel enjoy to actually really brighten the waterline and just green enough to make brown eyes really pop. I ended up breaking the tip of this one (or rather it came broken) so I have less of the product and have already purchased a back up.
I grade this lip combo a solid A+++!!! : The pencils are billed as Create clean lines and prevent feathering disasters with our long-wearing and super pigmented lip liner designed to be worn under your fave matching lip colour. The Stix are billed as Get one swipe pigmentation in a blur finish in a super creamy and comfortable formula loaded with skin-loving ingredients like shea butter and Vitamin E.
This is the perfect peachy nude shade!! It’s no secret that I love their lippie collection. (so much so that I always buy their vaults when they come out for the year.) This formula is just perfection and at a reasonable price tag.
I grade the foundation a solid A++ and the contour stick a solid A+++!!! : The foundation, which comes in 26 shades (I have it in porcelain) is billed as a highly pigmented, buildable cream formula that leaves a natural matte finish. The contour stick, which comes in 3 contour shades and 1 highlight shade (I have it in the shade Mink) is billed as a full-pigment, cream stick for contouring with buildable coverage and a natural-looking, matte finish.
The foundation is buildable and creamy and has a sort of matte satin finish (it’s not a flat matte but it’s not quite a demi matte either). It however did not seem very pigmented. It did leave my skin looking more polished and pretty but I felt as if I had to layer this a few times to get better coverage. (I used a foundation buffing brush so this should not have been the case). I still do like the way it looks I just wouldn’t choose this one for a special day again.
The contour is AMAZING!!! It’s got the perfect tones and has the perfect texture and is really pigmented. I only needed a few small dots of product around my face. It has a demi matte finish that melts into the skin perfectly. There was no patchiness, no grey undercast, and layered beautifully with the foundation and powders.
I grade this lip gloss a solid A+++!!! It’s billed as an extra-pampering lip balm to soothe, refresh, and re-awaken chapped and dry lips. It’s offered in 5 shades of which I own 3.
This is heaven! It’s not sticky or drying. It has mica in it but has no texture. It has just enough pigmentation that you can wear it alone or top your lips off with it and it wont change the undertone of the shade underneath. The scent, while I don’t like it that much, does not linger.
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.
