Hey doll hey!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m doing pretty good today. I got to see 3 of my 4 God babies today and visit with family. We are still adjusting to the new norm in our home, hubby has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and it’s been hard to figure out the best way to adjust him to his new way of eating…. we will be seeing a dietitian shortly and hopefully this will help us suss out meals for him better.
Today I redid my makeup 3 times… by the 3rd time I just gave up and went with what I came up with the 3rd time… personally it would have been better were I not to have did a wing liner…. que sera.
For today’s look I used the ColourPop Give it to Me Straight 12 Pan Palette (discontinued) and a few shades from the Juvia’s Place Warrior II 9 Pan Palette ($20 but on sale for $12 for 0.63 oz / 17.86 g of total product on their website making 0.07 oz / 1.98 g and $2.22 at retail price and $1.33 at sale price per shade).
Today’s scent is…
Top Notes: Pistachio and Almond.
Heart Notes: Heliotrope and Jasmine.
Base Notes: Caramel, Vanilla, Salt and Sandalwood.

Eyes and Brows:
I set my brows using 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) and the Makeup Revolution Soap Styler Brow Brush ($6 on their website) . 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 outlined and then filled in my whole brows using LA Girl Brow Pomade ($5.99 for 0.27 oz / 7.65 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Dark Brown (the deepest color). I cut my brow line and primed my lids using Beckisue Eyeshadow Primer (is no longer on Amazon but there are several replacement brands with the same formula on Amazon) in the shade #1 (medium).

I started by setting my brow line using the shade Zaz (egg shell white – matte) from the Juvia’s palette. I then went in with a combo of the shades Kana (dove grey – matte) from the Juvia’s palette and Downright (soft pinky beige – matte) from the ColourPop palette as an all over wash of color (from lash line to brow line). I used the shade Truth Hurts (peachy beige – matte) from the ColourPop palette as a transition shade.

For the outer v of the crease I used a combo of the shade Frank (warm brown – matte) from the ColourPop palette and Kufuru (syrup brown – matte) from the Juvia’s palette.

For foundation I chose Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundation ($44 for 1 fl oz / 30 mL of product at Sephora) in the shade #3 Neutral (for fair skin with neutral undertones). I color corrected my under eyes using LA Girl HD Pro Corrector Concealer ($4.99 for 0.28 fl oz / 8.28 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade Peach (neutralizes dark spots for light skin tones).

I concealed my under eyes using Beauty Bakerie InstaBake 3 in 1 Concealer ($20 for 0.19 fl oz / 5.62 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade #017 Frappe Hour (the 2nd lightest shade).
Cheeks, Lips, Lashes and Touch Ups:
For my cream blush I used bareMinerals Bounce and Blur Blush ($29 for 0.19 oz / 5.39 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Pink Sky (poppy pink). I set my under eyes using BECCA Under Eye Brightening Setting Powder (no longer available due to company closing).

For touch ups today I used Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder ($45 for 0.28 oz / 7.94 g and $25 for 0.11 oz / 3.4g of product at Sephora) in the shade 2 Medium.
I really did like the eye shadow on this last attempt today but this winged liner and this lip color ruined the whole look for me. I’ll have to attempt this look again.
With that, today’s face of the day walkthrough is over.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night 🌞🌜 and that you are in great spirits and health 😄🩺
