Copper Eyed Face of the Day

Published February 15, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I woke up with very little energy today so my makeup took me a long time to do. I had to keep taking breaks to rest. I also had to redo my makeup 3 times because I couldn’t get an eye look I liked. I tried to do a graphic eye look and that turned out really crappy, I tried to do a deep cut crease and that turned out crappy, and I tried to do a vampy smokey look and yup you guessed it, that turned out crappy. But, it’s OK…. It’s only makeup, and it can be removed and reapplied. So since my energy was really bad today I decided just to play it safe and do a basic coppery eye look. So let’s jump into the Face of the Day …..

20200215_163210

Base: I double primed today. First I primed the face using Makeup Forever Step 1 Smoothing Primer ($37 at Sephora) and then I primed using Wet n Wild Photo Focus Dewy Primer ($5.99 at Ulta). I color corrected using Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate ($12 at Target and on the Pixi website) in the shade Brightening Peach. My foundation today is the new Wet n Wild Photo Focus Dewy Foundation ($4.99 at Target) in the shade Soft Beige. I concealed my under eyes using Loreal Infallible Full Wear Concealer ($5.99 at Target) in the shade 360 Cashmere. I set my under eyes using ColourPop No Filter Setting Powder ($10 on their website) in the shade Translucent. I set the rest of my face using Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Ulta) in the shade Translucent. I warmed up the face using Benefit Hoola Bronzer ($30 at Ulta). I baked my jaw line, center of the forehead, and bridge of the nose using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 at Beautylish website). I then used the Too Faced Turn Up the Light Palette ($42 at Ulta) in the shade Soft Focus as a finishing powder.

Eyes: I primed the lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and set that using more of the Laura Mercier powder. For today’s eye look I used the ColourPop Double Entendre Palette ($18 on their website). As my transition shade I used a combo of the colors Extra Curricular (a soft burnt orange matte) and Send Noodles (soft tan matte). For my crease shade I used the color Nip Slip (a warm saddle brown matte). I deepened up the outer v using a combo of the shades Hard (a deep terracotta matte) and Teddy Bear (a deep chocolate brown matte). I also brought this combo onto the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid. I used the shade Keep It PG (a champagne gold metallic) on the inner  2/3 of the mobile lid. I then used the shade Draft (a deep rose gold metallic) on the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid. I took more of the shade Hard and blended that in between the middle and outer 1/3 and then I went back into the shade Draft and blended that between the inner and middle 1/3 to help blend all the shades together. I created a drop shadow on the lower lash line using the shade Extra Curricular and then deepened the lash line using more of the shade Hard. I highlighted the inner corners using more of the shade Keep It PG and layered a bit of the Glow shade from the Too Faced Turn Up the Light palette ($42 at Ulta). I set my brows using ColourPop Brow Boss Gel ($7 on their website) in the shade Dark Brown and then filled in the brows using Loreal Brow Stylist Definer ($7.99 at Target) in the shade Dark Brunette. I carved out my brows using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and set that using Wet n Wild Color Icon Single Shadow ($0.99 at Walgreens) in the shade Sugar. I lined my lower waterlines using Jordana 12-HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil ($5.29 on Amazon) in the shade 04 Continuous Almond (a pale nude). I created a wing using Benefit Roller Liner ($22 at Ulta) in the shade Brown and tight lined my upper waterlines using Ardency Inn Modster Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner ($20 on their website) in the shade Coffee.I put on a pair of KoKo Queen B lashes ($7.99 on the Lady Moss website) and then used Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara ($23 at Ulta) in black on my upper and lower lashes.

Cheeks and Lips: For blush I used a blush my god daughter told me to try …. Burt’s Bees Blush ($9.49 at Target) in the shade 1205 Bare Peach. I highlighted the tops of the cheeks, bridge of my nose, center of my forehead, and Cupid’s Bow using Too Faced Turn Up the Light Palette ($42 at Ulta) in the shade Glow (a pale white gold). I lined my lips using Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat ($22 at Sephora) in the shade Pillow Talk (a nude pink) and filled in the lips using the corresponding Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick ($34 at Sephora) in the shade Pillow Talk.  Today I used NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray ($8.50 at Target) to set my makeup.

Final Thoughts:

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Dewy Foundation: A+                                                                         This foundation’s formula is so much better than the original. It left my face looking so fresh and glowy. It didn”t settle into fine lines and it didn’t get cakey or patchy. It held up pretty well today too. The shade I chose was a spot on match for me and it didn’t feel heavy or greasy either. It’s a pretty good drug store foundation. I will definitely use this bottle up. I may even repurchase it.

Loreal Infallible Full Wear Concealer: B-                                                                                     OK so I tested this concealer out again, this time in a better shade match for me. It’s just an OK concealer. It’s high medium coverage. It’s a thick consistency concealer that is a tiny bit hard to blend in, but I think that’s because I used too much. I will have to try it out again with less product to see if it’s better for blending in. I’m going to test it out again later next week, if I don’t like it then I plan on decluttering it out of my collection, no need to keep a concealer I don’t like around.

ColourPop No Filter Setting Powder: B-                                                                                         As a setting powder for under the eyes this is a hard pass for me. It was way too drying for under the eyes. It left my under eye looking heavy and cakey. I’ve tried it in the past as an all over setting powder and it’s just OK. Nothing really to write home about. I’ll end up using this powder up but I will not be repurchasing it.

Too Faced Turn Up the Light Palette: A-                                                                                        This palette is so good. I just, again, wish it didn’t have a glittery highlighter as the 3rd pan. The 1st pan highlighter is so pretty and so everyday wearable.

Ardency Inn Modster Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner: A+                                            This eyeliner is crazy pigmented and easy to use. It’s smooth and doesn’t tug at the delicate skin of the eyes. It’s creamy and doesn’t skip on the waterlines. I also have it in Black and it is a very intense black.

Burt’s Bees Blush In The Shade Bare Peach: A+++!!!!                                                                     I am so glad my God daughter suggested I try this blush out. It is such a pretty everyday neutral peach shade!!! It blends out perfectly and isn’t patchy or cakey. It’s the perfect peach for every type of look you can think of.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick In The Shade Pillow Talk: A+++!!!!!                  I have a love affair with the shade Pillow Talk in the Lip Cheat. I had always wanted to try the lipstick shade too. So I purchased this shade today. It is the perfect nude pink for any look. It’s the your lips but better shade of pink. I loved it so much I jumped on line and ordered a back up.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Stay tuned for my next post which will be a haul post. I hope you have a great rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits. Remember, save a spoon for a bit on lipstick.

Valentine’s Day Look #2 Face of the Day

Published February 11, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!! Hope you are having a great day/night and that you are in good spirits. Today I am in pain, what I always say is if I ever wake up with no pain I will think I’m dead …. having pain all the time is soul draining. Fibromyalgia can take a lot out of you… always being in pain, always having energy drains…. but I’ve decided that I am not going to let Fibromyalgia keep me at the sidelines forever…. So I showered and sat down to do my makeup …. I was excited to play with the new ColourPop All That Palette and really wanted to do another Valentine’s Day look. I also tested out 3 more products to see if I would be getting rid of them or keeping them…lose products are …. Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation in the shade 366 C Buff Bisque, Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner in the shade Rosary, and the NYX Born to Glow Highlighting Palette.  I will review not only the eye shadow palette, but also the 3 things on the chopping block in Final Thoughts. So without further ado, let’s jump into the Face of the Day …..

20200211_123809

Base: I primed the face using Flower Beauty In Your Primer Pore-Minimizing Primer ($10.99 at Ulta). I color corrected my under eyes using Tarte CC Undereye Corrector ($25 at Ulta) in the shade Light-Medium. For foundation I am wearing Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation ($2.79 at Walmart) in the shade 366 C Buff Bisque. I concealed my under eyes using The Balm Time Balm Concealer ($18 on their website) in the shade Light-Medium. I set my face using Flower Beauty Light Illusion Perfecting Powder ($13.99 at Ulta) in the shade Beige. I warmed up the face using Makeup Geek Fair Skin Bronzer (discontinued do to rebranding) in the shade Sun Kissed. I set my under eyes and baked my jaw line, tops of the cheeks, bridge of the nose, and center of the forehead using RCMA No Color Powder ($15 on the Beautylish website).

Eyes: I primed my lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer ($30 at Sephora) in the shade Medium 1 Custard and set that using Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($39 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent. To create this look I used ColourPop All That Palette ($18 om their website). For my 1st transition shade I used the color BB Girl (a true baby pink matte). For my 2nd transition shade I used the color Cha Cha (a mid-toned warm pink matte). I went in with a 3rd transition shade to really blow the eye line out and used the color Wink Wink (a dusty red matte). I deepened my crease using the shade Silhouette (a muted burgundy matte). I then used more Soft Matte Complete Concealer to clean up the inner 2/3 of the mobile lid. On the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid I used the color Infatuation (a bright scarlet metallic) and on the inner 1/3 I used the shade Uncensored (a bright rosey copper metallic). I then used the color Please Me (a deep merlot matte) to deepen the outer v and the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid. To create the drop shadow on my lower lash line I first used the color BB Girl, followed by the shade Wink Wink, followed by the color Silhouette. I then lined my lower waterline using ColourPop BFF Creme Gel Liner ($6 on their website) in the shade Joy Ride (deep burgundy) and then smoked out the lower lash line using the color Please Me. I highlighted the inner corners using the color Risque (an icy pink with silver reflect metallic). I set my brows today first with the soap brow method and then went in with a bit of Pixi by Petra Brow Tamer ($10 at Target) in clear. I filled in the brows using ELF Ultra Precise Brow Pencil ($5 on their website) in the shade Deep Brown. I carved out my  brow line using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and set the brow line using the color Uncuffed (a pale baby pink matte).  my mascara today is Revolution Beauty The Mascara Revolution ($10 at Ulta) in the shade Black.

Cheeks and Lips: My blush today is Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-HR Blush ($29 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Natural Beauty (a rosey red matte). I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, bridge of the nose, center of the forehead, and my Cupid’s Bow using NYX Born to Glow Highlighting Palette ($25 at Ulta) and using the top left shade (a pale white gold). I lined my lips using Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner ($19 on their website but on sale for $8 at Sephora) in the shade Rosary (a true cherry red). I filled in my lips using Becky G x ColourPop Creme Lux Lipstick ($9 on their website) in the shade Fee Fi Fo (an red-orange terra cotta).

Final Thoughts:

ColourPop All That 12 Pan Eyeshadow Palette:                                                                        This palette was so fun to play with today!!! I would grade this palette an A+++!!!! There was only a small amount of kick back with some of the darker shades in the pan and there was zero fallout on the face, except with the shade Infatuation which had a small amount of glitter fall out. The shades blended into the lids perfectly with out skipping or going patchy and each shade buffed into each other seamlessly without going muddy. The shade variation is perfectly done. There are 3 shades for transition, 3 shades for crease work, 2 shades for highlighting the brow bone, and 4 metallics that look beautiful on the lids. But that doesn’t mean you can’t use the shades in any order and on any part of the eye you want. This palette is just so pretty. I am very happy with the way the look turned out today and can’t wait to do a smokey red eye next. Definitely a great purchase!

Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation:                                                                                                I love the way this foundation sets down on the skin. It looks pretty. The only thing I don’t like is that it’s so matte. I barely reach for it because of how matte it is. I have decided to declutter this one from my collection, however I did just place an order on Amazon for the Dewy version of this foundation to test out.

Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner:                                                                                                        I have several of these lip liners. They are super pigmented, glide on smoothly with out pulling at the delicate lip line. They don’t feather into the fine lines around the lips either. I will not be purchasing any more from this brand until I see what the “rebranding” does… I do not support Kat Von D and even though she isn’t part of the company right now, doesn’t mean she wont be later down the line…. but I will use up the products I have, I don’t understand the whole throwing something away that I spent  my hard earned money on just because I don’t agree and refuse to support any further a brand. I will not be decluttering this liner.

NYX Born to Glow Highlighting Palette:                                                                                     This palette arrived with 1 shade broken. I have tried each of the remaining shades. The shades a pretty but there is glitter in this palette and the highlighters are so dusty and powdery that it just seems to sit on top of the cheeks even after using a setting spray.  I have decided to declutter this palette from my collection.

Well there you have it… I loved the All That palette and decluttered 2 of the 3 products on the chopping block today.

I hope you enjoy the look I came up with as much as I do… I truly love the way it came out. I also hope that the rest of your day/night goes wonderfully and that you are in a low pain level with a high energy level.

Remember, save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO

Everyday Neutral Look Face of the Day

Published February 9, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How are you doing today? Great I hope. I woke up really late today, around 9:30 am. So I got a late start to my makeup. I just finished around 2 pm. Had to rest up a ton today, very low on spoons. I started to not want to do my makeup because I just don’t have much energy, but my husband reminded me of my motto… to save a spoon for a bit of lipstick… and so I dusted myself off and jumped into makeup. I decided to do just an everyday look mainly because my energy wouldn’t let me do much this morning. I also am testing out 3 products that I wanted to see if I would declutter or not… Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Coverage Foundation, ELF HD Lifting Concealer, and Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder. As I have been doing lately I will be discussing these products in Final Thoughts. So let’s jump into the Face of the Day ….

Base: I primed my face using Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer ($45 at Sephora). My foundation today is Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Coverage Foundation ($43 at Sephora) in the shade Y235 Ivory Beige. I color corrected using Tarte CC Undereye Corrector ($25 at Ulta) in the shade Light-Medium. I concealed my under eyes using ELF HD Lifting Concealer ($4 at Walmart and on their website) in the shade Light. I set my face using Loreal Infallible Pro Mate 16-HR Powder ($7.29 at Target) in the shade 200 Natural Beige. I warmed up the face using Makeup Geek Contour Powder (discontinued do to rebranding) in the shade Complicated (a cool medium bronze).

Eyes: I primed the lids using NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer () in the shade Mediun 1 Custard and set that with Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder () in the shade Translucent. For my eye look today I am using the palette that I created from Makeup Geek (discontinued do to rebranding , however you can build your own palette under the rebranding for $49.41), this was before the rebranding. As my 1st transition color I used the shade Peach Smoothie (a pale peach matte). For my 2nd transition color I mixed the shades Punkin’ (a mid-toned coral orange matte) and Dark Roast (a deep mid-toned brown matte). On my mobile lid I 1st laid down a base of cream highlighter on the inner 2/3… I used AOA Studio Dewy Creme Highlighter ($1 on the Shop Miss A website) in the shade Silk (a deep coral champagne). On top of that I used the shade I’m Peachless (a pale peach with pink shift shimmer). I then took more of the shade Punkin’ and placed that on the middle 1/3 of the lid. I deepened the outer v, low down on the crease, and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid using more of the shade Dark Roast. I then layered the shade Rapunzel over the middle of the inner and middle 1/3 to blend those shades together more. I lined my upper lash line using Iglot Eyeliner Gel ($17 on the Beautylish website and on Amazon) in the shade 90 Brown and lined my lower waterline using Revolution Pro Supreme Pigment Gel Eyeliner ($5 on their website) in the shade Nude.  I set my brows using Pixi by Petra Brow Tamer ($10 at Target and on their website) in clear and filled in my brows using ELF Ultra Precise Brow Pencil ($4 on their website) in the shade Dark Brown, and then I carved out my brow line using BH Studio Pro Brow Highlighter ($5 on their website) on the matte side and set that using the shade So Pale (a cream matte). I used the shade Punkin’ to create a drop shadow on the lower lash line and then went in with more of Dark Roast to darken the lower lash line. I then buffed more of Peach Smoothie on the lower lash line to blend the drop shadow out. I highlighted my inner corners using the shade Shimma Shimma (a pale white champagne). For mascara today I am using Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes ($29 on the Beautylish website) in the shade Glossy Black.

20200209_151046

Cheeks and Lips: My blush today is Makeup Geek Blush (discontinued do to rebranding) in the shade Heart Throb (salmon brown matte). I highlighted the tops of my cheeks, center of my forehead, bridge of the nose, and Cupid’s Bow using Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder ($5.99 at Ulta) in the shade Precious Petals (a golden champagne with a slight pink flip). I lined my lips using Flower Beauty Petal Pout Lip Liner ($6 on their website and at Target) in the shade Rose (a bright rosey pink) and then topped that using Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($5.49 at Target) in the shade Pink Bliss (a rosey pink).

Final Thoughts:

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Coverage Foundation:                                                    The shade I have is a spot on shade match for me. I like this foundation. It looks nice on the skin and bends in quickly. It doesn’t set down all the way so you do need to set it with powder. It’s a high medium coverage foundation. It’s not a foundation that wows me, but I do like using it. So I will use up what I have but I will not be repurchasing it. I will not be decluttering this one from my collection.

ELF HD Lifting Concealer:                                                                                                              First of all, the shade I have is the shade light…. it’s in no way light. It’s a perfect shade match for my skin tone, but it’s not light. I don’t have much of this concealer left. They do have the shade fair which is lighter but it’s always out of stock. I have decided I just don’t like this concealer enough to keep it …. I have decluttered it, I may in the future try it in the shade fair, if I can ever get my hands on it, but for now it’s been decluttered.

Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder:                                                                                      I never reach for this highlighter. I keep forgetting I have it. I really love this highlighter and I don’t have another one that is similar to this one. I have moved it to my everyday drawer to try and get some more use out of it. It’s a tiny bit on the dusty side, but once you use setting spray it melts into the skin beautifully. There is no glitter in this one either, something that drives me crazy…. yes we all know how much I noramlly harte glitter….but I really do love this highlighter and I will not be decluttering this one from my collectiion.

Well there you have it, out of the 3 things on the chopping block, I have decluttered 1 item and have decided once I have used up another one, I will not repurchase it…

I hope you have an amazing rest of your day/night and remember…. save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO
