Full Glam Cut Crease Face of the Day

Published August 8, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m feeling better today…. I might even makes some more soft pretzels today.

I wanted to go full glam today, just playing around … trying to perfect my cut crease work… this is what I came up with. For today’s look I used shades from 3 Juvia’s Place Palettes: (1) The Chocolates Palette ($14 on their website and at Ulta), (2) The Warrior Palette ($20 on their website), and (3) The Nubian 2 Palette ($28 on their website and at Ulta).

Today I am wearing Burberry Brit (scent notes are…. At the Top : Italian Lime, Icy Pear, Green Almond. In the Middle: Sugared Almond & White Peony. Rounding the Scent Out: Amber, Mahogany, Vanilla, and Tonka Bean).

Well let’s dive into today’s Face of the Day Walk-through.

Base:

I primed my face using Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer ($54 at Sephora) and then a layer of VDL Lumilayer Primer ($32 at Ulta) and then prepped my pores using Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta and Sephora). I contoured using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand ($38 at Sephora and on the Beautylish website) in the shade Medium/Deep. For foundation today I am wearing Private Society Drops of Perfection ($30 on their website) in the shade Medium. I bronzed up the face using Fenty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer ($32 at Sephora) in the shade 05 Teddy (tan skin tones). I highlighted the high points of my face using the BECCA Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter ($38 for 1.5 fluid ounces of product at Ulta) in the shade Passion (pale, iridescent pearl that reflects gold). I color corrected using BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector ($32 on their website) in the shade light/medium and then concealed my under eyes using JCat BEauty StaySurance Water Sealed Zero Smudge Concealer ($7.99 at Ulta) in the shade Custard. I set my under eyes using ELF Smooth and Set Eye Powder ($4 on their website) in the color sheer. I set the rest of my face using ELF Halo Glow Setting Powder ($8 on their website) in the color Light. I touched up the bronzer on my face using Milani Baked Radiance Bronzer ($8.99 at Ulta) in the shade #09 Dolce. For touch ups I am using Catrice Cosmetics Prime & Fine Waterproof Mattifying Powder ($7.49 at Ulta).

Eyes:

I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 only at Dollar General Stores) in clear and then filled in my bows using ELF Lock On Liner & Brow Cream ($4 on their website) in the shade Medium Brown.  I carved out my brows and primed my lids using Makeup Revolution Cut Crease Canvas Full Coverage Base ($9 on their website) in the shade Canvas (pure white). For today’s eye look I used shades from 3 Juvia’s Place Palettes: (1) The Chocolates Palette ($14 on their website and at Ulta), (2) The Warrior Palette ($20 on their website), and (3) The Nubian 2 Palette ($28 on their website and at Ulta). I started by setting my brow line using my Catrice Cosmetics Prime & Fine Waterproof Mattifying Powder ($7.49 at Ulta). For my transition color I used a combo of the 2nd shade of the 2nd row (mustard yellow – matte) of the Chocolates Palette and the shade Kano (caramel – matte) from the Warrior Palette. For my outer v of the crease and the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid I used a combo of the 1st shade of the 2nd row (rich warm red – matte) of the Chocolates Palette, Madagascar (beige – matte) from the Nubian 2 Palette, and Ahosi (light cantaloupe – matte) from the Warrior Palette. For my crease I used a combo of Morocco (dark orange – matte) from the Nubian 2 Palette, Kano (caramel – matte) from the Warrior Palette, and the 2nd shade of the 2nd row (mustard yellow – matte) of the Chocolates Palette. I then deepened about 1/3 of the outer v of the crease and the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid using a combo of the shade Kenya (chocolate brown – matte) from the Nubian 2 Palette, the 1st shade of the 1st row (deep chocolate brown – matte) and the 3rd shade of the 1st row (deep brown with grey undertones – matte) of the Chocolates Palette. I then cut my creases of the inner 2/3 of the mobile lid up to the transition shade using more of the Makeup Revolution Cut Crease Canvas Full Coverage Base ($9 on their website) in the shade Canvas (pure white). I then went in with the shade Dahomey (russet gold – metallic) from the Warrior Palette and feathered that over the outer 1/3 of the cut crease. I then went into the shade Nefertiti (18 K Gold – shimmer) from the Nubian 2 Palette and feathered that over the middle 1/3 of the cut crease. I then went in with a combo of the shades Bakwa (gold – metallic) from the Warrior Palette and the shades Nairobi (yellow gold – metallic) and Zuri (ivory – shimmer) from the Nubian 2 Palette and feathered that over the inner 1/3 of the cut crease and also around the tear duct area of the inner corner of the eyes. I kept it simple for the lower lash line. I did a soft drop shadow using a combo of the shades Kano (caramel – matte) and Morocco (dark orange – matte). I then used more of the 3rd shade of the 1st row (deep brown with grey undertones – matte) of the Chocolates Palette to deepened the lash line.  I tight lined my upper and lower water line using Sephora 12HR Colorful Contour Eye Pencil ($11 at Sephora) in the shade Cocoa (Chocolate Brown) and did two coats of ColourPop BFF Mascara ($8 on their website) in the shade Black on Black and then popped on a pair of ColourPop Falsies ($8 on their website) in the style Mami.

Cheeks and Lips:

For blush today I chose the 1st shade of the 1st row (the coral shade) of the ELF Cream Blush Palette ($8 at Ulta and on the ELF website) and then set that with a slight tap of the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12HR Blush ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Captivating (bright peach – matte). I touched up my highlighter on the high points of my face and my Cupid’s Bow using JCat Beauty You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter ($8.99 at Ulta) in the shade YGG #102 Twilight (golden champagne). I lined and filled in my lips using ColourPop Lippie Pencil (this shade is only available in the Big Box of Lippie Pencils Vault – out of stock) in the shade Lumiere (dusty mauve pink) and then topped the lips off using L’Oreal Collection Exclusive Lipstick ($8 at Walmart) in the shade Julianne’s Nude (blush nude).

Final Thoughts:

I didn’t mean to go as glam as I did but I am super happy with the way it came out today. I think I should have chosen a terracotta nude for my lipstick but other than that I really do love the look.

I got confirmation that my Beautylish order will be here Wednesday and my Alter Ego order will be here on Monday.

I’m STILL waiting for my 4 orders from ColourPop to be processed…. it’s been 8 days and they’ve YET to process the darn orders. It’s super annoying but I do understand that processing and shipping may still be slow because of the Pandemic…. I just really can’t wait to get my hands on those palettes.

Well that’s all dolls. I hope you have a great day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.

Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO, Nita

Neutral Smokey Eye Face of the Day

Published July 27, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? I’m doing OK today. A little run down but all in all pretty OK.

Today I am wearing Gucci Bamboo ( it has top notes of Casablanca Lily & Amber Accords, middle notes of Orange Blossom & Ylang Ylang, and the scent rounds out with notes of Sandalwood, Tahitian Vanilla, and Ambergris).

For today’s look I used shadows from 3 palettes: Juvia’s Place The Chocolates Palette($14 on their website and at Ulta), Juvia’s Place The Nudes Palette ($14 on their website and at Ulta), and Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Palette ($45 at Ulta and Sephora). Well … let’s get into today’s Face of the Day ….

Forgot to blend my nose contour today YIKES

Base:

I primed my face using Fenty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Primer ($32 at Sephora). Today I tried a new to me technique called reverse foundation or under painting (where you start by doing cream contour and highlight BEFORE you do your foundation) so I started with my contour using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand ($38 at Sephora and on the Beautylish website) in the shade Medium/Deep. I then did my foundation using Fenty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation ($35 at Sephora) in the shade 120 (for fair skin with neutral undertones). I bronzed up the face using Fenty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer ($32 at Sephora) in the shade 05 Teddy (tan skin tones).

I color corrected using BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector ($32 on their website) in the shade light/medium and then concealed my under eyes using Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer ($26 at Sephora) in the shade 120 (for fair skin with neutral undertones).  I set my under eyes using Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder ($28 at Sephora and Ulta). I set the rest of my face using BECCA Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder ($39) in the original shade. I touched up the bronzer on my face using the BECCA Sunlit Bronzer ($38 on their website) in the shade Ipanema Sun (medium auburn brown). For touch ups I am using BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder (Originally $9.50 but on sale for $4.75 on their website) in the shade #230.

Eyes:

I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 only at Dollar General Stores) in clear and then filled in my bows using ELF Lock On Liner & Brow Cream ($4 on their website) in the shade Medium Brown.  I carved out my brows and primed my lids using the P.Louise Base ($10 GBP/ $12.79 USD on their website) in the shade #02 Rumour. For today’s eye look I used shadows from 3 palettes: Juvia’s Place The Chocolates Palette($14 on their website and at Ulta), Juvia’s Place The Nudes Palette ($14 on their website and at Ulta), and Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Palette ($45 at Ulta and Sephora). I started with the Too Faced Palette and set my brow line using the shade Swan (eggshell – matte). For my transition shade I use a combo of the shades Maple (warm caramel brown – matte) from the Too Faced Palette, the 2nd shade of the 1st row of the Nudes Palette (light beige – matte), and the 3rd shade of the 2nd row of the Nudes Palette (rich terracotta brown – matte). For the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and my crease I used a combo of the 1st shade of the 2nd row of the Chocolates Palette (warm red – matte) and the shade Cocoa (medium chocolate brown – matte) from the Too Faced Palette. I deepened the 1/2 way point of the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the outer v of the crease using a combo of the shades Truffle (deep rich brown – matte) from the Too Faced Palette and the 1st shade of the 1st row of the Chocolates Palette (Deep Chocolate Brown – matte). I then deepened the very edges of the outer eye using the 3rd shade of the 1st row of the Chocolates Palette (grey toned brown – matte). For the remaining 2/3 of the mobile lid I first went in with the 1st shade of the 1st row of the Nudes Palette (peachy champagne with a silver flip – metallic) and then went over the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid I used the shade Sugared Chestnut (golden brown – metallic) from the Too Faced Palette. For the lower lash line I first went in with more of the shade Maple (warm caramel brown – matte). I used more of the shade 1st shade of the 2nd row of the Chocolates Palette (warm red – matte) followed by more of the 3rd shade of the 1st row of the Chocolates Palette (grey toned brown – matte) to deepen the lash line up. I highlighted the inner corners using Revolution Highlighter Reloaded ($7 on their website) in the shade Just My Type  (a deeper champagne). I lined my lower waterlines using Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner($26 at Sephora) in the shade Sunset 74 (golden bronze shimmer). I coated my lower and upper lashes using Believe Beauty Hi-Definition Skinny Mascara ($4.50 only at Dollar General Stores) and then popped on a pair of BEauty Queen lashed from Obsidian Cosmetics (no longer in business).

Cheeks and Lips:

For blush I used Fenty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush ($20 at Sephora) in the shade 06 Daiquiri Dip (soft coral red). I set the cream blush with the lightest hint of Revolution Blusher Reloaded ($7 on their website and at Ulta) in the shade Coral Dream (a bright coral red). I touched up my highlight and highlighted the Cupid’s Bow using Revolution Highlighter Reloaded ($7 on their website) in the shade Just My Type  (a deeper champagne). I lined and filled in my lips using Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat ($22 at Sephora) in the shade Pillow Talk (nude pink) and topped the lips off with ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip (this shade discontinued) in the shade Bestie (creamy pink).

Final Thoughts:

I totally forgot to blend the bronzer on the bridge of my nose today! Yikes! Oh well … can’t have a good makeup day every day right? I also didn’t realize that I didin’t cover my lash band with eyeliner so there’s that too.

I broke out a little on the left side of my face right in near my pores … I think I might have used a little too much Squalane oil last night so I’ll probably skip the oil for a few days so it clears up.

I’m so bummed! My favorite place to get lashes was an ETSY shop and sadly they have closed down as of Sunday so I’m gonna have to go on a hunt for new lashes elsewhere for next month.

Well, that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.

Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

Chocolate Smokey Eye Face of the Day

Published May 23, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I woke up fairly early today (around 8 AM). I have stiff joints and leg pain today but have pretty good energy levels today.

I wanted a dark smokey eye look so this is what I came up with.

Today’s perfume is Juicy Couture…. Let’s jump into today’s Face of the Day …

Base:

I first primed my problematic pore areas with ELF Poreless Putty Primer ($8 at Ulta) and then primed the full face using Dr Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer ($45 at Ulta). I then used the Pixi by Petra Flawless Beauty Primer ($22 on their website and at Target) as my glow lotion today. For foundation I chose AOA Studio Perfect BB Cream ($1 on the Shop Miss A website) in the shade Medium. I used a bit of Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 on their website and at Target) in the shade Brightening Peach for some light color correction and for concealer I chose Private Society Coveted Concealer ($22 on their website) in the shade Medium. I contoured using Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand ($38 at Sephora, on the Beautylish website, and on the Charlotte Tilbury website) in the shade Medium Dark to contour the perimeter of my face and down the bridge of my nose. I highlighted the tops of my cheek bones, bridge of the nose, center of the chin, and high points of my forehead using Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand  ($38 on the Beautylish website, The Charlotte Tilbury website and at Sehora) in the shade Spot Light and then I went in with just a touch of Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light colorway and using the Glow in that kit to set the high points of my face. I set my under eyes using Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eyes ($28 at Ulta) in the shade 1 and then set the rest of my face using the  Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent. I then topped off  the perimeter of my face using a light layer of Channel Soleil Tan de Chanel ($50 on their website) in the shade Bronze Universal. I also used the Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) and using the Soft Focus powder as an all over finishing powder. I chose the Wet n Wild Photofocus Pressed Powder ($5.47 on their website but on sale now for $3.57) in the shade Neutral Beige as my touch up powder for the day.

Eyes:

I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in clear and then filled in my brows using Joah Brow Down To Me Precision Brow Pencil ($9.50 on their website) in the shade Brunette. I carved out the brow line using BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and then I primed my lids using P.Louise Base ($10 pound sterling/ $12.08 USD on their website… can also be found on the Morphie website for $15) in the shade Rumour 0.5 and set the brow line using Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Single ($.99 at Walgreens) in the shade Sugar (icy white shimmer). For today’s look I used the Juvia’s Place The Chocolates palette ( $14 on the Juvia’s Place website). I started in the crease with the 2nd shade of the 2nd row (mustard yellow matte). I then used the 1st shade of the 2nd row (rich warm reddish brown matte) in the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the outer v of the crease. I then deepened the very outer part of the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the very outer part of the outer v using the 1st shade of the 1st row (deep chocolate brown matte). For the remaining 2/3 of the mobile lid I used the 2nd shade of the 1st row (warm brown with a brown and silver shimmer metallic) and then went back into the reddish brown to buff out the demarcation line between the outer 1/3 and inner 2/3 of the mobile lid. I created a drop shadow on the lower lash line using more of the mustard yellow shade and then deepened that drop shadow with more of the reddish brown shade. I then took more of the chocolate brown matte shade and deepened the lash line. For my inner corners I used the dazzle shade for the Too Faced Born This Way Turn Up The Light Highlighting Palette ($42 at Ulta and Sephora) in the Light colorway. I tight lined my upper and lower water lines using Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen ($9 at Ulta) in the shade Black Cocoa (a deep brown). I coated my upper and lower lashes in 1 layer of NYX On The Rise Volume Liftscara ($11 at Ulta).

Cheeks and Lips:

For blush today I am wearing Makeup Revolution Blusher Reloaded ($6 at Ulta) in the shade Rhubarb & Custard (coral pink). On my lips today I  lined and filled in my lips using L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Long Lasting Lip Liner ($5.95 on Amazon) in the shade Coral and topped that off with Jouer High Pigment Pearl Lip Gloss ($17 on the Beautylish website) in the shade Sloane (discontinued color… it’s a mid-toned pinkish coral).

Final Thoughts:

I don’t know if I will be doing a Face of the Day post tomorrow or not. We are rearranging our bedroom furniture and my beauty nook and so I’m not sure if I will wake up and do my makeup first or not. If I get up at a reasonable time I’ll maybe do a quick and fuss free look but if not then I will just forgo my makeup so that we can move my bedroom around.

I was thinking of doing a new series called Get Ready With Me … like they do on YouTube, but in print form…. Where I would go step by step in my makeup routine and have pictures that you could follow along with … is that something you would be interested in? I have had a few people say that they like a certain look that I’ve done but that they could never do it or they wished they knew how to do it … so I figured if I did a few step by step posts it might help someone else learn a new makeup technique.

I’m also thinking about doing a few posts showing my full makeup collections piece by piece. I would do a 13 part series …. 1 post per makeup type: primer, foundation, concealer, contour/bronzer, highlighters, face powders ( loose ones too), blush, eye palettes/complete face palettes/single shadows, mascaras, eye liners/ gel liners/pen liners, brow products, lashes,
and setting sprays.

I am still trying to decide how I want my makeup nook to look and how I will organize all of my makeup items now that I have another shelf unit that I can utilize I was thinking of getting rid of the huge baker’s rack that takes up a good amount of real-estate in our room. We will have to see how the resign goes tomorrow. Of course I will post pictures once it’s done.

Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and good health.

Remember dolls…. Always save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO
