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 the KVD Super Pomade Vegan Eyeliner, Shadow & Brow Pigment ($21 for 0.18 oz /5.11 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Medium Brown (light-medium brown). I craved out my brow line and primed my lids using Juvia’s Place I Prep, I Prime Eye Primer ($12 0.41 fl oz / 12 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade Shade 1 (milky white). For today’s eye look I used L.A. Girl Good Times And Tan Lines 16 Color Eyeshadow Palette ($15.99 for 1.23 oz / 34.87 g of total product making it 0.08 oz / 2.18 g and $1 per shade) and the BH Cosmetics Party in Puerto Rico 16 Color Shadow Palette ($17 for 0.56 oz / 16 g of product on their website making it 0.035 oz/ 1 g and $1.06 per shade). I started by setting my brow line using the shade SPF(vanilla beige – matte) from the L.A. Girl palette. I the popped on a cut crease stencil (from Crown Noir) and then using shade Tan Lines (tan – matte) from the same palette as my transition from the cut crease stencil to the brow line. I then went into the BH palette… Using the shade Cayo Icacos (deep true orange – matte) to further define the transition area and wrapped that around the cut crease stencil so that I was able to apply this shade to the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the outer v of the crease. I then took the shade Culebrita (bright red based orange – matte) from the same palette I used a tiny detailer brush and applied that shade very close to the cut crease stencil. I then peeled off the stencils and using the shade Castillo (burnt terra cotta red – matte) from the same palette I defined the outer v of the crease some more. I then took a flat concealer brush and cleaned out the cut creases and then applied more Juvia’s Place I Prep, I Prime Eye Primer ($12 0.41 fl oz / 12 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade Shade 1 (milky white). I then took the ColourPop Super Shock Shadow ($7, is on sale for $4.90 right now for 0.074 oz / 2.1 g of product on their website) in the shade Straight on ’til Morning (shimmering golden lime) and applied it all over the cut crease from lash lien to the end of the cut crease. I then took the shade El Morro (true orange – metallic) from the BH palette and feathered that over the middle line of demarcation of the middle 1/3 of the cut crease to blend the look together. For the lower lash lines I used more of the shade Cayo Icacos (deep true orange – matte) to create a deep drop shadow. I then used the shade Tropi-cool (mid-toned red based brown – matte) from the LA Girl palette to deepen the lower lash lines and the very outer part of the outer v of the creases. I then took more of the shade El Morro (true orange – metallic) from the BH palette to add dimension along the lower lash line. I lined my lower water lines using ColourPop BFF Crème Gel Liner (was limited edition and no longer available) in the shade Aglow (light metallic lime green). I highlighted the inner corners of my eyes using ColourPop Super Shock Shadow ($7, is on sale for $4.90 right now for 0.074 oz / 2.1 g of product on their website) in the shade Fly to Your Heart (sparkling pinky beige with gold and silver pin points).
I primed my face using the I Heart Revolution Coconut Dream Hydrating Primer ($8 for 0.91 fl oz / 27 mL of product on their website). I then applied the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Instant Perfector 4-In-1 Glow Makeup ($12.99 for 0.68 fl oz / 20.11 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade 00 (fair/light) all over the face. I contoured using the SOL Body Face & Body Bronzing Balm ($15 for 1 .1 oz / 31 g of product on the ColourPop website) in the shade Deep Dark. For foundation today I chose the Juvia’s Place Shade Stick ($16 but on sale for $8 on their website for 0.34 oz / 9.76 g of product on their website) in the shade Luxor (light with neutral undertones). I bronzed using the Flower Beauty Pore Perfect Stick Foundation (discontinued) in the shade Mocha #50. I highlighted the high points of my face using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Glow ($25 for 0.68 fl oz / 20 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade Perla (white gold). I color corrected my under eyes using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 for 0.1 fl oz / 3 g of product on their website) in the shade Brightening Peach and then concealed using Anastasia Beverly Hills Magic Touch Concealer ($29 for 0.4 oz / 11.34 g of product at Ulta) in the shade 02 (fair with cool undertones). I then feathered the front of my brows using Anastasia Beverly Bills Micro-Stroking Detailing Brow Pen ($22 for 0.017 fl oz / 0.503 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade Ebony (black hair with neutral undertones).
Cheeks, Lips, Lashes and Touch Ups:
For the cream blush I used the E.L.F. Putty Blush ($6 for 0.35 oz / 9.92 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Tahiti. I set my under eyes using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Loose Setting Powder ($38 for 0.88 oz / 24.95 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Translucent. I set the rest of my face using Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – Light Catcher ($39 for 1 oz / 28.35 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Celestial Light (fair to light skin tones) and then applied more the Anastasia Beverly Hills Loose Setting Powder ($38 for 0.88 oz / 24.95 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Translucent to try and tone down the sparkle of the first setting powder. I touched up my bronzer using BH Cosmetics Tanned in Tulum – 6 Color Bronzer & Highlighter Palette ($17 for 0.84 oz / 23.8 g of total product at Ulta making it 0.14 oz / 3.97 g and $2.83 per shade) in the shade Ruinas and my blush using Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Mini ($24 for 0.04 oz / 1.3 g of product at Sephora) in the shade Defused Heat (vibrant poppy). I added just a bit of the Makeup Revolution Highlighter Reloaded ($7 for 0.35 oz / 9.92 g at Ulta) in the shade Dare to Divulge (rose gold) to the tip and bridge of my nose as well as my cupid’s bow. I lined and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil ($6 on their website) in the shade Oh Snap (muted pinky nude) and then I applied the ColourPop Lippie Stix (shade is discontinued) in the shade Parachute (medium orange – matte) and then I topped my lips off with a bit of clear lip gloss. I decided to skip the lashes today to give my natural lashes a break and I did 3 coats of the Makeup Revolution The Mascara Revolution ($10 for 0.5 fl oz / 14.79 g of product on their website). I set my full face using Beauty Bakerie Spray Your Grace Setting Spray ($18 for 3.4 fl oz / 100 mL of product at Ulta).
This look came out so pretty, however my face looks so greasy because of the setting powder I used. I really do like the combo of bright orange with lime green… I do wish I would have done a winged liner but even so it’s still pretty.
ColourPop Believe in Faires Super Shock Shadow Kit (retails for $20 and is a $21 value as each are sold separately for $7 for 0.074 oz / 2.1 g of product on their website) is billed as All you have to do is believe! Sprinkle on these 3 long-wearing bold colors in our famous crème to powder formula for the perfect pixie looks. Kit includes shades Straight On ‘Til Morning, a shimmering gold lime, Never Grow Up, a plum bronze with flecks of copper violet, and Fly to Your Heart, a sparkling pinky beige with golden and silver shimmers. Shimmering colors in our iconic shadows for a dash of fairy magic! The 2 shades I used where Straight on ’til Morning (shimmering golden lime) and Fly to Your Heart (sparkling pinky beige with gold and silver pin points).
I give these super shock shadows a solid O+++!!! Both shades went on effortlessly, had high sparkle and did not crease or crack the whole day. There was no fall out or kick back and the shades are just stunning.
L.A. Girl Good Times And Tan Lines 16 Color Eyeshadow Palette ($15.99 for 1.23 oz / 34.87 g of total product making it 0.08 oz / 2.18 g and $1 per shade) is billed as a limited-edition Hey Hey Vacay Eyeshadow Palettes from L.A.

I give this palette a tentative A+++!!! I only used 3 mattes so I’m not sure just how good the palette is just yet, however if it’s anything like the Hey Hey Vacay Under the Palms palette then this palette will be a winner. The 3 mattes I used had no kick back and no fall out.
BH Cosmetics Party in Puerto Rico 16 Color Shadow Palette ($17 for 0.56 oz / 16 g of product on their website making it 0.035 oz/ 1 g and $1.06 per shade) is billed as an array of vibrant oranges and pinks plus smoky hits with intense pigment payoff can keep up with beach and rainforest hopping, wild nightlife and everything in between.

I give this palette a solid A+++!!! The mattes are creamy and blend easily and the metallic is super buttery and well pigmented. There was some fall out and very little kick back.
ColourPop Crème Shadow ($8 for 0.13 oz / 3.6 g of product on their website) in the shade Bronco (soft warm yellow) is billed as long-wearing, creamy eyeshadows are easy to wear, crease-proof, and water-resistant.
I give this crème shadow a solid F-: This crème shadow was HORRIBLE!!! It was stiff and went on patchy, wouldn’t blend even with a beauty blender it clung to every spot on my eye and cracked even before I could apply shadow. I ended up taking it off and decluttering it from my collection.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Instant Perfector 4-In-1 Glow Makeup ($12.99 for 0.68 fl oz / 20 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade 00 (fair/light) is billed as Maybelline’s 1st 4-in-1 makeup for a perfected glow look that primes, conceals, highlights, and evens skin tone with light coverage that has self-adjusting shades that blend into skin tone. This product comes in 5 shades.
I give this product a solid O+++!!! This 4 in 1 is amazing! It’s creamy and smooth and it melts into the skin perfectly. It gives this ethereal glow to the skin that is just stunning. This is a great dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, it’s not an exact dupe but it’s pretty darn close.
KVD Beauty Super Pomade Vegan Eyeliner, Shadow & Brow Pigment ($21 for 0.18 oz 5.10 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Medium Brown (light-medium brown) is billed as a one-pot wonder for waterproof eyeliner, shadow and brows, in 17 long-lasting colors. Super Pomade is the same beloved KVD Beauty Super Brow formula, with more ways to get creative. Experience smooth, creamy color in this 3-in-1 pomade. Whether you’re a gel-pot eyeliner lover, bold eyeshadow enthusiast or brow pomade super-fan, you’ll be obsessed with its endless possibilities.
I give this pomade a solid O+++!!! This pomade is perfection. It’s the perfect consistency, not too stiff but not too creamy either. It’s the perfect shade and went on like a dream. This stuff sets and does not move. I’m keen to purchase other shades since it’s a 3 in one I’d be interested in testing it as an eye base and as a liner.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Magic Touch Concealer ($29 for 0.4 fl oz / 11.93 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade #2 (fair skin with cool undertones) is billed as a lightweight, creamy formula that melts into skin to correct, brighten, blur and conceal while blending to a natural, second-skin finish. Delivers buildable medium to full coverage while light-reflecting ingredients create a soft-focus effect.
I give this concealer a solid O+++!!! This just might be my new favorite concealer. It’s full coverage pigment and a very little goes a very long way. I applied it to the sides of my nose to blend my contour and that little bit was enough to blend the contour of the nose, brighten the chin and forehead and still conceal my under eyes.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Glow ($25 for 0.68 fl oz / 20.11 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade Perla (white gold) is billed as a weightless liquid highlighter that offers an intense glow with metallic and luster finishes. This item comes in 4 shades.
I give this liquid highlighter a solid O+++!!! Damn, ABH is killing the makeup game these days. I don’t really like their eyeshadow palettes but every complexion product (and brow product) has been a grand slam homerun! This highlighter is super pretty, gives glow without being overly shiny and dries completely down so it doesn’t need a powder touch up. This one is so pretty that I could use it on no makeup days for an added glow.
Juvia’s Place Shade Stick ($16 but on sale for $8 on their website for 0.34 oz / 9.76 g of product on their website) in the shade Luxor (light with neutral undertones) the multipurpose, foundation stick that works as a triple threat–lightweight foundation stick, concealer stick and the best contour stick, too. Formulated to feel like your own skin, these creamy, long-lasting foundation sticks are available in 30 shades ranging from deep nude to rich chocolate, making it the best natural foundation for your most sultry and sexy makeup looks. This full coverage formula is infused with shea butter and oil-controlling ingredients to aid in a long wear time while providing radiance to skin. Paraben-free; phthalate-free; sulfate-free; gluten-free
I give this foundation a solid O+++!!! This foundation is just as amazing as I thought it would be. It was thick but creamy and once I blended it in I couldn’t even feel it on my face. It worked well with the rest of my complexion products and just looked stunning the whole day. I didn’t even need to touch up.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Loose Setting Powder ($38 for 0.88 oz / 24.95 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Translucent (colorless) is billed as perfect, brighten and set makeup in place with Loose Setting Powder by Anastasia Beverly Hills. This lightweight, superfine powder formula goes on smoothly as it absorbs oil, minimizes shine and leaves you with a flawless matte finish. Available in 4 natural-toned shades and 1 universal translucent shade, this silky formula gives the complexion a seamless, soft-focus effect, blurs the look of imperfections and extends the wear of your makeup.
I give this setting powder a solid O+++!!! This setting powder is super brightening and sets the face perfectly without feeling cakey or heavy. It even helped tone down the disco ball mess of the next product I’m reviewing…
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – Light Catcher ($39 for 1 oz / 28.35 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Celestial Light (fair to light skin tones) is billed as the 1st light-creating Setting Powder, with 12 hour pore blurring, skin smoothing, and no photo flashback. This product comes in 3 shades.
I give this loose setting powder a solid F- and if I could lower the grade any further I would: This loose setting powder is a dumpster fire of a product! It’s horrendous! It had so much mica in it that it was like applying a loose highlighter all over my face. It left my skin so highlighted that once I stepped into the sun I looked like I was part of the Cullen clan. I sparkled like I was dipped in pixie dust. Just a train wreck. I ended up taking it back to the store. I love Laura Mercier but this is just a disaster.
and with that the walkthrough for today’s look is over…
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night 🌞🌜 and that you are in great spirits and health 😄🩺.
👄Remember, Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick👄.
