Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m doing pretty well.
I started my eye look over which makes me sad because the original eye look was stunning but I just had to add a wing… and… then…I…BLINKED 😣, so naturally I had to try and fix the wings and before I knew it my baby wings were thicker than a Muppet’s eyebrows. I thought, ok… I can salvage this look… I’ll just ad glitter… and PRESTO…. the scariest eye look on the planet… so I removed the eye makeup and redid my eyes, but I was starting to loose energy so I opted for a classic fall eye look… those don’t take me very long.
For today’s look I used the Natasha Denona Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette ($25 for 0.028 oz/ 0.8 g per shade at Sephora) and the 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).
Today’s scent is…
Top Notes: Mimosa, Litchi and Rose.
Heart Notes: Tuberose, Gardenia and Orange Blossom.
Base Notes: Marzipan, Musk, Ambroxan, Orris and Suede.
Let’s get to the walkthrough of today’s Face of the Day….

Eyes and Brows:

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).

I started by setting my brow line using the shade SPF(vanilla beige – matte) from the LA Girl palette. For my transition shade I used the shade Soil (medium transition nude) from the Natasha Denona palette. For my crease shade I used Tan Lines (tan – matte) from the LA Girl palette.

For the lower lash line I created a deep drop shadow using more of the shade Sienna (matte terra-cotta) from the Natasha Denona palette and then wrapped it around to connect with the outer v of the crease.

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).

The look I did first was so stunning I super bummed I messed it up but there is something timeless about a simple fall eye.

Top Notes: Mimosa, Litchi and Rose. Heart Notes: Tuberose, Gardenia and Orange Blossom. Base Notes: Marzipan, Musk, Ambroxan, Orris and Suede.
I give this perfume a solid O+++!!! This perfume is stunning! It’s warm and inviting and pairs well with anything you wear. As it dissipates is transforms from a warn floral to a spicy yet sweet floral. The scent lasts all day and just a few spritzes is all you need.
Zoeva Authentik Skin Perfector Retouch Concealer ($19 for 0.20 fl oz / 5.91 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade 010 Absolute (fair skin with neutral undertone) is billed as a medium, buildable coverage elixir for conquering tired, uneven skin, Its luxuriously creamy, soft texture instantly conceals any imperfections & blurs the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, while leaving a luminous velvety finish.
I give this concealer a solid O+++!!! This concealer is amazing! I didn’t even apply it directly to my under eyes. I used it to clean up my nose contour and the residual on my beauty sponge was enough to fully conceal my under eyes. This is a creamy and highly pigmented concealer that did not crack or crease all day long.
Zoeva Authentik Skin Natural Luminous Foundation ($28 for 1.01 fl oz / 30 mL of product at Ulta) in the shade 060N Brave (light skin with neutral slightly yellow undertones) is billed as enriched with the nourishing power of rose hip oil. Buildable, silky smooth, all day long finish. Innovative, lightweight formula designed to maintain the skin’s natural protective barrier, while allowing natural luminosity to shine through.
I give this foundation a solid O+++!!! Damn it I wish I could grade this higher! This melted into my skin seamlessly. It doesn’t feel like I’m wearing anything, has a beautiful glow to it and, despite my apprehension, the shade was perfect for me. It did not break at all all day, it didn’t go greasy through the t-zone (I don’t get greasy but I do get a hint shiny). I am hoping they are not discontinuing this one I can tell I’m going to reach for this one heaps.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick ($18 for 0.12 oz / 3.4 g of product in the full size, this mini has 0.045 oz / 1.3 g at Ulta) in the shade Dead Roses (rosy lilac) is billed as full pigment lip color with a smooth, ultra-matte finish. This lipstick formula comes in 24 shades.
I give this lipstick a solid O+++!!! Everything about this lipstick is stunning. It’s comfortable, long wearing and the shade is divine. I am purchasing the full size.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss ($16 for 0.16 oz / 4.54 g of product in the full size, this mini has 0.07 oz / 2 g of product at Ulta) in the shade St Tropez (iridescent rose gold) is billed as a smooth, creamy formula that delivers high-shine lip color. Wear alone or layer with lipstick for lustrous color and high shine and boosts having an ultra-smooth, weightless formula that leaves lips with a mirror-like shine with a flat, sponge-tip applicator delivers multidimensional pigment neatly and precisely. This formula comes in 16 shades.
I give this lip gloss a solid O+++!!! I love the ABH lip gloss formula. It’s not sticky, thick or chunky and lasts a lot longer than almost every other lip gloss I have ever used, and can we talk about this color. yummy.
