Today I have another Face of the Day post! I’m going to try to continue and post these every Thursday, and I also try to use new products mixed with some old favorites. Let me know if you’re all okay with seeing a makeup look every week!
Today’s face was inspired by my want to slather one of the new shades from the Milani Moisture Matte lipstick line all over my face. I’m not even kidding. I also wanted to do something warm on the eyes, because I honestly love a very warm eye with a dark lip. The contrast is striking, in my opinion.
For my base, I went with Maybelline’s Master Illuminating primer and mixed one pump of Hard Candy’s “porcelain” glamoflauge with a little bit of Loreal’s Magi Lumi foundation (also the lightest shade)
Concealer is my usual NYX lavender and porcelain mixed, and I used it to highlight on the bridge of my nose as well. I set my face with Laura Geller’s balance and brightening powder in “porcelain.” My under eyes were set with physician’s formula correcting powder in “translucent.”
Brows are Milani’s new brow pomade in “dark brown” set with Nyx’s brow mascara in “black”
I primed my eyes with concealer and used “succubus” from the Kat Von D Shade + Light eye palette to set the primer and help blend the colors out. Okay, I know I used a lot of different eye colors/palettes for this look so please bare with me. The first transition shade I used was from my Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter stack, the shade “unseen.” I’m obsessed with this shade. I then took “laetus” from the Shade+Light palette and lightly blended it with “unseen.”
I took “sytry” on a flat brush and concentrated that in the crease. I I then took “Queensguard” by Shiro cosmetics on the entire lid, and made sure to clean up the crease a bit in the process. On a small angled brush I took “shax” and placed in concentrated on the outer part of the crease to further cut it a bit more. I took “blurr” from the Dark Matter stack and blended out any harsh lines on the outside shape and used “succubus” to highlight my brow bone.
Liner is physicians formula eye booster and Urban Decay’s 24/7 liner in “perversion.” I created the shape with the eye booster pen and filled it in with the liquid liner. I can’t stand the brush on the Urban Decay liner, but it truly is the blackest liquid liner in my collection.
Lower lash line is Stila Stay All Day smudger liner in “damsel” on my water line and all of that is smudged out with “Unseen” “sytry” and “laetus” in that order
Mascara on both upper and lower lash lines is Too Faced Better than Sex mascara. Lashes are Kiss 11.
Contour is Nyx’s HD blush in “taupe” and blush is Milani’s new rose blush in “Awakening Rose.”
Highlight is Nyx’s illuminator in “Ritualistic.” I recently pulled this highlighter back out and fell back in love with it! It’s a very pretty white gold shade that isn’t too overpowering on my fair skin. It’s also what’s on the inner corner of my eye and at the very top of my brow close to the arch.
Lips are lined with Jordana’s liner in “cabernet” and topped with Milani’s Matte Fearless.
I set my entire face with Pixi’s glow mist setting spray.
Cute little flower band is actually from Rue 21, and they’re only $2 each so you need about 100.
If you have any questions about anything, please feel free to ask me! I hope you all enjoyed this look, and thanks for reading if you made it this far!
