Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Mine?? ummmm… It’s better than yesterday, not as good as I had hoped… but progress is still progress.

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) which I applied with a disposable lip gloss wand and combed through with a disposable mascara wand and once they dried I outlined and then filled in my whole brows using the L.A. Girl Brow Pomade ($5.99 for 0.27 oz / 7.65 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Dark Brown. I craved out my brow line and primed my lids using Beauty Creations Color Base ($4 for 0.5 fl oz / 15 mL of product on their website) in the shade White Out (pure white). For today’s look I used the MIKAYLA X GLAMLITE 30 PAN PALETTE ($42 for 1.26 oz / 36 g of product on their website making it 0.042 oz / 1.2 g and $1.40 per shade). I started by setting the brow line using a bit of translucent setting powder since I didn’t really want the brow line to be too bright. I started in the crease using the shade How ya Doin’ (light tan – matte), buffing it through the full crease and almost up to my brow line… I left a small gap between the crease shade and the brow line. In the blank space between the brow line and the crease shade I used the shade  Gemini (light peach – matte). I then took the shade Hot Cocoa (deep peachy tan – matte) and fluffed it through my crease and over the outer 2/3 of the mobile lids. I then took what was left of the shade How ya Doin’ (light tan – matte) on the brush to blend Hot Cocoa (deep peachy tan – matte) out some. For the outer v of the crease I used the shade Willow (deep reddish brown – matte). I cut a very slight crease using micellar water and a flat concealer brush and then patted more primer over that. In that newly cut crease I applied the shade Glow Up (coral with a gold flip – metallic). I then took more of the shade Hot Cocoa (deep peachy tan – matte) over the middle 1/3 of the cut crease and then I tapped a slight amount of Cookie (deep bronze – metallic) over the top of that. For the lower lash lines I used more of the shade Cookie (deep bronze – metallic) creating a deep drop shadow and then I darkened the lash lines using more of the shade Willow (deep reddish brown – matte). I highlighted the inner corners of my eyes with my highlighter that I used on my high points. I tight lined my upper and lower lash lines using the ColourPop BFF Crème Gel Liner (only available in the like a charm liner vault for $40 each liner has 0.007 oz / 0.2 g of product on their website) in the shade Brew Ha Ha (deep neutral brown). 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).


I primed my face using E.L.F. Mint Melt Cooling Primer ($8 for 1.01 fl oz / 30 mL of product on their website). 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 used 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 Flower Beauty Day Glow Highlighting Glaze ($10.99 for 0.12 oz / 3.4 g at Ulta) in the shade Stunner. I concealed the sides of my nose to clean up my contour using the BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer (discontinued but there is 0.18 fl oz / 5.32 mL) in the shade Porcelain and then patted what ever was left on my sponge under my eyes to conceal them.

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 BECCA Undereye Brightening Setting Powder (discontinued but has 0.95 oz / 2.7 g of product) and the rest of my face using the Makeup Revolution Loose Baking Powder ($8 for 1.12 oz / 32 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Translucent (for all skin tones).  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) and my highlighter using Makeup Revolution Highlighter Reloaded ($7 for 0.35 oz / 9.92 g at Ulta) in the shade Dare to Divulge (rose gold). I skipped using lip liner today since my look was so neutral. On my lips I used the ColourPop Just a Tint Lip Stick (no longer available but was $7 for 0.07 oz / 1.98 g of product) in the shade Coconut Juice (warm chocolate). 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) since I was giving my lashes a brake from falsies today.  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).

Final Thoughts:

The pictures do not do this look justice. The eye look is super dainty and the lids really glow.

ColourPop X Animal Crossing Pick of the Bunch Lip Tint Mini Kit $12 for 0.08 ounces of product on their website making each shade $6. This is currently sold out, was limited edition.

I give this lippie a solid A+++!!! This is a very hydrating lip balm. There is perfect pigmentation but this lippie doesn’t last long… assume too because I love it but will not be able to repurchase since it was a limited edition item.

MIKAYLA X GLAMLITE 30 PAN PALETTE ($42 for 1.26 oz / 36 g of product on their website making it 0.042 oz / 1.2 g and $1.40 per shade) is billed as Mikayla’s dream palette come to life with a variety of bright colors and rich neutral shades, there are an endless amount of glamorous looks that can be created with Mikayla’s palette. It is truly a must have to take your eyeshadow to the next level.

The palette has 17 mattes and 13 metallic shadows. The shades from left to right and top picture to last picture are: Harley (tan with a slight grey cast – matte), How ya Doin’ (light tan – matte), Gemini (light peach – matte), What’s Poppin’ (antique gold – metallic), Hot Cocoa (deep peachy tan – matte), Willow (deep reddish brown – matte), Glow Up (coral with a gold flip – metallic), Simba (mid toned dusty coral – matte), Accent (copper – metallic), Buffalo Chicken (mid toned peach – matte), Manifest (deep plum with a silver flip – metallic), Cookie (deep bronze – metallic), Iconic (pastel lilac – matte), Simping (soft pink with a silver flip – metallic), Immaculate (lilac – metallic), MJ (pastel purple – matte), New Beige (true purple with slight silver shift – metallic), Nahs (icy lilac with a strong silver shift- metallic), The Best Color (bright pastel mint green – matte), Bonehead (true green with slight gold shift – metallic), Stunnin’ (bright yellow gold – metallic), Portagee (deep purple with lilac pin points – metallic), Paht Two (dusty true purple – matte), Rhody (bright light blue – matte), Audrey (deep blue with a teal flip – metallic), Freetown (dusty dark blue – matte), Loop (yellow green – matte), Handy (bright yellow – matte), Frisky (deep berry purple – matte) and Masshole (bright true blue – matte).

I give this palette a tentative )O+++!!! I only used 6 shades and they were all in the neutral family (meaning that the pigment formula is hard to mess up) so I want to hold off on giving this a final grade until I’ve had time to test out the blues, greens and purples. So far though there was no fall out, very little kick back, no patchiness and pigmentation was beautiful.

Just like that… the walkthrough for today’s Face of the Day 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👄.
