Hey doll hey! How’s your Monday day/night going? Great I hope. I’m doing OK. In some pain… we are having a huge storm here in Florida today… because of Hurricane Elsa… but nothing too heavy.
My Tiny Decisions app chose a smokey eye for today’s look.
For this look I used 2 of my stash palettes… my stash post can be found 👉🏽 HERE.
Today’s scent is:
Top Notes: Italian Orange, Sambac Jasmine and Bitter Orange.
Heart Notes: Jasmine, Orange Blossom and Ginger.
Base Notes: Vanilla, Sandalwood and Honey
What I think about this scent: This is a warm inviting scent that I wear when ever I’m feeling cozy. It’s like being wrapped up in your favorite warm cardigan. This is a scent that pairs great with business causal, playtime causal and boardwalk dressy.

Now… on to the walk through of today’s Face of the Day…..
FYI: I’ve been keeping my curly hair routine religiously so much so that I didn’t feel that I needed to wash my hair this Saturday, I’m going to try and maintain it so that I can last until Saturday of this week.
Eyes and Brows:
I set my brows using got2b glued styling spiking hair glue by Schwarzkopf ($14.91 for 3, 6 oz tubes on Amazon, it’s also sold at most drug and big box stores). I brushed the gel through my brows and used the handle of my spoolie brush to flatten my brows out and once they dried I feathered my brows with L.A. Girl Brow Pomade ($5.99 for 0.27 oz / 7.65 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Dark Brown. I carved out my brows using P.Louise Base ($13.88, £10 for 0.504 fl oz / 15 mL on their website) in the shade Rumour 05. For today’s eye look I used the Nabla Secret Palette ($39 for 0.46 oz / 13.1 g of total product at Ulta making it 0.036 oz / 0.873 g and $2.6 per shade) and the BH Cosmetics Smitten in Switzerland 16 Pan Palette ($17 but on sale for $6.80 for 0.56 oz / 16 g of total product at Ulta making it 0.035 oz / 1 g and $1.06 per shade and $0.43 per shade on sale). I started by applying P.Louise Base ($13.88, £10 for 0.504 fl oz / 15 mL on their website) in the shade Rumour 11 (dark brown) all over the mobile lids and then I used a fluffy crease brush to buff it into my lids and up into the crease, butting up against the brow line. I then set my brow line using the shade Snowcap (soft cream – matte) from the Smitten palette. I then used the shade Ghibli (salted caramel – super matte) from the Nabla palette for my transition. From the same palette I used the shade Mea Culpa (deep warm brown – super matte) from lid to crease and then I took a combo of the shades Chocolate (deep brown – matte) and Slope (soft grey – matte) and deepened the crease some more. I then took the shade Romeo (brown w/ pink undertone and copper-red shimmer – satin) and tapped that with my finger all over the mobile lids to give more dimension to the lids. I created a winged eyeliner using KVD Beauty Tattoo Eyeliner ($21 for 0.019 oz/ 0.55 mL of product at Sephora) in the shade Mad Max (brown). For the lower lash line I created a deep drop shadow using the more of the shade Ghibli (salted caramel – super matte). I then took more of the shade Mea Culpa (deep warm brown – super matte) along the lower lash lines. I then lined my lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Crème Gel Liner ($6 but on sale for $4.20 on their website) in the shade Lattice (warm champagne – metallic). I highlighted the inner corners of my eyes using a combo of the shades Play Hard (aqua green duochrome w/ lime and jade reflects – crystal) and I Promise (light pink champagne – satin) from the Smitten palette.
I primed my face using Believe Beauty Pretty and Primed Hydrating Primer ($5 for 1 fl oz /30 mL of product only at Dollar General Stores). My foundation today is ColourPop Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Acid Tinted Moisturizer ($14 for 1.45 fl oz / 43 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade Medium 10 N (neutral undertone) . I color corrected my under eyes using Tarte Colored Clay CC Undereye Corrector ($25 for 0.08 oz / 2.27 g of product at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Light/Medium. For concealer I used Milk Makeup Flex Concealer ($28 for 0.2 oz/ 5.9 mL of product at Sephora) in the shade Crème (very fair with warm peach undertones). I contoured using Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Stick ($25 for 0.35 oz / 9.92 g of product at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Mink (toasted almond) and bronzed using Juvia’s Place Shade Stick Foundation ($16 but on sale for $6 for 0.34 oz / 9.7 g of product on their website) in the shade Guinea (dark with neutral undertones). I highlighted the high points of my face using BECCA Ignite Liquified Light Face & Body Highlighter ($38 for 1.5 oz/ 45 mL of product at Sephora) in the shade Passion (pale, incandescent pearl that reflects gold).
Cheeks, Lips, Lashes and Touch Ups:
My cream blush today is NARS Liquid Blush ($30 for 0.5 oz/ 15 mL of product at Sephora) in the shade Orgasm (peachy pink with golden shimmer). I set my under eyes using BECCA Under Eye Brightening Setting Powder (on longer available as company is going out of business) and the rest of my face using bareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil Finishing Powder ($27 for 0.3 oz / 8.5 g of product at Ulta). I touched up my bronzer using MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Face Powder ($37 for 0.35 oz 9.92 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Give Me Sun (light summer peach tan). I lined my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 but on sale for $4.20 on their website) in the shade Bossy (classic red) and filled in my lips with NARS Lipstick ($26 for 0.12 oz /3.40 g on product at Sephora) in the shade Ravishing Red (bright coral pink – matte). I applied a coat of ColourPop BFF Mascara ($9 for 0.24 oz / 6.80 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Black on Black and popped on a pair of Beauty Creations 3D SILK LASHES ($4.99 on their website) in the style Reyna. I set my face using ColourPop Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Acid Setting Mist ($12 for 3.72 oz of product at Ulta). For touch ups I am using Milani Conceal + Perfect Shine-Proof Powder ($10.99 for 0.43 oz / 12.3 g of product on their website) in the shade 02 Nude .
I never do a smokey eye the same way twice. I don’t know why I just can’t seem to reduplicate my smokey eyes, however I really love the way this eye came out. It’s smokey yet has a small pop of light to it.
Well that’s all dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in great spirits and health.
