It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for this week’s “face of the day” post! I look forward to this post every week, and I hope you all enjoy them as well. They’ve pushed me to try new looks and to try new products/colors out. When I did this look it was very rainy and gloomy, so I was feeling another cool toned look. But don’t worry, I made it fun! Anyone else stuck inside all day Tuesday thanks to intense storms? We were. My husky was feeling anxious and our power flickered on and off all day. I also had a tired mom moment and completely ignored the flash flood warning on my phone because I was very tired and the girls were still asleep.
Not one of my proudest moments.
Anyway, if my pictures seem a bit darker than usual, that’s why. I tend to use natural light for my face photos, it’s just personal preference.
First thing to address, I cut my bangs! I wanted a new style without cutting my hair since I’ve been growing it out for two years now. So, I went with short “v” bangs. Essentially, they’re just bettie bangs that meet in a point. Like a faux widow’s peak. I love it. I also have new nose jewelry because I noticed last week that the gems in my last clicker were falling out. My nose looks pretty again.
Okay, I’m serious now let’s talk makeup. For my base I primed with my Laura Mercier hydrating primer, as usual. I mixed together City Color Cosmetic’s tinted moisturizer in “fair” and LA Girl Pro BB cream in “fair.” There’s something that I really love about this combination. It’s a nice coverage and looks dewy on my skin, yet my freckles peak through. I’ve really been loving it, but I noticed that it’s a bit dark on me. I might have to add my manic panic dreamtone to it. Woo, it takes 3 products to get the perfect mix! #thestruggle
I set my face with my Laura Geller Balance and Brightening powder in “porcelain” and used my LA Girl pro concealer in “porcelain” under my eyes and set that with Physicians Formula correcting powder.
My contour today is my Lunatick Cosmetic Labs cool contour kit, and it’s also what I used to contour my nose. Blush is Milani’s “Romantic Rose” and highlight is Colourpop’s “Smokin Whistles.” I have been addicted to this highlight the past few weeks. It’s a gorgeous champagne color that reflects silver. It’s the absolute perfect champagne highlight for fair, cool toned skin. I’m in love.
My brows are Milani’s new pomade in “dark” and set with Nyx’s brow mascara in “black.” Also a favorite combo of mine lately. I primed my eyes with Too Faced’s shadow insurance and my transition shade is “SOS” by Nyx. I then took “Downtown” by Colourpop on a flat brush and put that more concentrated in my crease. Because my liner is fun today, I wanted a simpler look on my lids, and I felt taupe would contrast well with the teal color of the liner. Lid and brow highlight is the white shade from the Kat Von D shade+light eye palette. Only because no other matte white compares to that one, in my opinion.
Okay, so remember when I posted about how to change your loose shadow into liner? Hey, well I did that today. I mixed a homemade water and vegetable glycerin combo on a palette with Shiro Cosmetics shadow in “Lingered in Twilight.” This shade is a gorgeous deeper teal with a bit of sparkle, and I thought it would make the perfect liner on a stormy day.
I did tightline my upper water line with a gel pencil because it made my eyes look a bit fuller, and I was planning on wearing false lashes. I used my Maybelline The Falsies mascara on my upper and lower lashes, and my lashes are a pair that I got off ebay. I honestly do not know the name of them, but they are very nice and wispy.
On my lower lash line I used Nyx’s jumbo pencil in “Milk” on my water line and blended “SOS” and “Downtown” together on the lower lash line. My inner corner highlight is a Nyx loose pigment. I believe the color is “platinum” or something, but that’s a con to the Nyx loose shadows. They’re gorgeous and affordable, but good luck remembering the names once you take the sticker off and open it.
My lips are lined with Essence’s liner in “soft berry” and topped with LaSplash’s “Nymphadora.” My whole face is set with Pixi’s glow mist setting spray.
I hope you all enjoyed today’s face of the day post! If you have any requests or want to know anything about a product mentioned, please feel free to ask in the comment section!
Have a good day, beauties.

Loving the “v” shaped bangs on you! It was pretty gloomy around here Tue and Wed too. But sometimes it’s nice be shut in.. it forces you to relax a little!
I love your bangs! They look great on you! Beautiful makeup as always!! 🙂
The bangs look great! I remember I tried giving myself bangs when I was a teenager. That wasn’t very successful lol. I’m really loving that lip color!
The weather has been especially crappy this year, hasn’t it? Way more rain this year than the last. or at least it seems that way. It rained for like a whole week straight! I guess I don’t mind too much. Gives me a reason to be lazy at home lol. Hope y’all didn’t get affected by the flooding!
Looking absolutely gorgeous huni!! You rock that look so much!! Karen x
Thank you so much! Yeah, I feel like it has rained so much this Summer, which I don’t particularly mind minus the flooding and humidity haha. I wish my kids viewed it the same way…they get so antsy and being stuck inside most of this Summer has taken a toll on all of us…
Thank you so much! Your sweet comments always mean the world to me ❤
Always so welcome Kayla XXX
