Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m doing pretty damn good today! Other than having issues with my right thumb (RA at its finest) My pain level is around a 4 today… A FOUR!!! That hasn’t happened in over a year. My energy was pretty good as well.
Of the 4 looks I created for this week the Tiny Decisions app chose ….
Look #3… now bare in mind that it’s difficult to get a good blend on a piece of paper so it’s not going to look exactly like the face chart.
But… I think I did pretty darn good with it.
The 3 palettes I used for this look are:
1. ColourPop It’s a Mood 30 Pan Palette ($34 for 1.16 oz / 33 g of total product on their website making it 0.039 oz / 1.1 g and $1.13 per pan). I’ll refer to this palette as the CPM palette.
2. Juvia’s Place The Festival 9 Pan Palette ($20 for 1.14 oz / 32.4 g of total product on their website making it 0.13 oz / 3.6 g and $2.22 per pan). I’ll refer to this palette as the JPF palette.
3. Huda Beauty Empowered Eyeshadow Palette ($67 for 0.59 oz / 16.8 g of total product making it $3.72 and 0.033 oz / 0.93 g of product per pan). I’ll refer to this palette as the HE palette.
Onto today’s walk-through and pictorial….

Eyes and Brows:
I started by setting my brows in place using Got 2 B Glued Spiking Glue ($7.99 at Ulta) and then I outlined and filled the brows in using the E.L.F. Ultra Precise Brow Pencil ($6 for 0.002 oz / 0.06 g of product at Ulta) in the shade deep brown. . I cleaned up the top part of the brow using the Milk Makeup Flex Concealer ($28 on their website) in the shade Creme (Very fair with warm peach undertones) and the bottom of the brows using the Glamlite Eye-cing Eyeshadow Base ($10 for 0.52 oz / 14.74 g of product on their website) in the shade Classic Vanilla. I also primed my lids with this primer.
I laid down my transition shade using a fluffy paddle brush and the shade Power (pale yellow based peach – matte) from the HE palette.
Using a fluffy crease brush and the shade Iri ji (fuchsia – matte) from the JPF palette I defined my crease. I also took this shade over the outer 2/3 of the mobile lids.
On a super fluffy crease brush and using a combo of the shades had to be (blackened plum – matte) and echoes (plum – matte) from the CPM palette I further defined the crease lower than the first crease shade. I also took this shade over the outer 1/3 of the mobile lids.
Using my finger using the CPM palette I applied the shade moves (plum – metallic) to the middle 1/3 of the mobile lids and thunder (plum with a teal flip – duo chrome metallic) to the inner 1/3 of the mobile lids.
For the lower lash line I used a mid sized pencil brush and more of the shade Iri ji (fuchsia – matte) from the JPF palette and then went in with a small pencil brush and the shade had to be (blackened plum – matte) from the CPM palette. I then lined the lower waterlines using ColourPop BFF Creme Gel Liner (this shade was limited edition) in the shade Plum Crush (a berry plum).
I primed my face using the AOA Wonder Skin Illuminating Primer ($1 for 0.67 fl oz / 19.81 ml of product on the Shop Miss A website). For cream contour I used the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand ($40 for 0.40 fl oz / 12 ml of product at Sephora) in the shade Medium/Dark. My foundation for today is Urban Decay Hydromaniac Glowy Tinted Hydrator Foundation ($29 for 1.1 fl oz / 35 ml of product at Sephora and Ulta) in the shade #20 Fair Neutral. I bronzed using first the Huda Beauty Tantour Contour & Bronzer Cream ($30 for 0.52 oz / 12 g of product at Sephora) in the shade Light (light to medium with cool undertones) and then the Maybelline City Bronzer ($10.99 for 0.24 oz / 6.80 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Deep 300.

For cream highlight today I used Benefit Eye Beam Gel Highlighter For Eyes & Face ($24 for 0.34 US fl oz / 10 mL of product at Ulta) and it’s partner powder highlighter is Makeup Revolution Highlight Reloaded ($7 for 0.35 oz / 9.9 g of product at Ulta) in the shade Dare to Divulge (rose gold). I color corrected my under eyes using Wet n Wild MegaCushion Highlight ($5.99 for 0.24 oz / 6.8 g of product on their website) in the shade Who’s That Pearl (bright peach) and I concealed using a new item I’m testing out, the Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Luminous Matte Buildable Coverage Crease Proof Concealer ($29 for 0.30 fl oz / 9 ml of total product on their website) in the shade Royal Icing 1.1N (the 2nd lightest shade). I tested out the Uoma Beauty Trippin Smooth Powder ($29.50 for 0.35 oz / 10 g of product on their website) in translucent for my under eyes, I ended up having to follow that up with a hint of BECCA Under Eye Brightening Powder (discontinued) to set my under eyes. To set the rest of the face I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Loose Setting Powder ($38 for 0.9 oz/ 25 g of product at Sephora) in the shade Translucent.
Lips, Lashes, and Finishing:
I lined my lips using NYX Suede Matte Velvet Vegan Lip Liner ($4 for 0.03 oz / 0.85 g of product at Ulta) in the shade STFU (magenta) and then filled in my lips using Maybelline Super Stay Vinyl Ink Liquid Lipcolor ($12.99 for 0.14 fl oz / 4.15 ml of product at Ulta) in the shade Coy (dusty rose mauve). I applied to coats of Benefit Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara ($27 for the 0.3 oz / 8.5 g size and $14 for the 0.14 oz / 3.97 g size) and popped on a pair of ColourPop Falsies Faux Lashes ($8 per pair on their website) in the style Chica (lengthening and volumizing everyday lash). I set the whole face using the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray ($36 for the 3.3 oz / 100 ml size and $21 for the 1.1 oz / 34 ml size at Sephora). For touch ups I will be using the Catrice Cosmetics Prime And Fine Waterproof Luminizing Powder (discontinued).
I truly love this eye look… went a bit overboard on the bronzer, I couldn’t see it until I took pictures… but this eye and lip combo is giving me happy feelings. There is something so stunning about a smokey purple look.
I did notice that the metallic shades I used had heaps of fallout on my cheeks… I didn’t use glitter glue, I almost always use glitter glue… today I just forgot and man was that a pain in the ass to clean up.
This week’s perfume is Versace Red Jeans Perfume ($18.59 for 2.5 fl oz 73.9 ml of product on the Fregrance.Net website). The scent notes for this perfume are: At the top: Peach, Black Currant, Apricot and Freesia. In the middle: Ylang Ylang, Water Lily, Rose, Violet and Lily-of-the-Valley. Rounding out the bottom with: Sandalwood, Musk and Vanilla.
Well.. that’s it for today dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you remain in great spirits and health.
Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
