Today is Thursday, so I have a look to share with you all! This look is a bit different in the sense that I pulled out some products I haven’t used in awhile, but I have some newer things to talk about as well. I really need to show some of my products some love and rotate them out, so this is my way of doing so. I hope you all enjoy it!
Base: Too Faced Hangoverx primer and the Covergirl Outlast 3 in 1 foundation (Ivory) mixed with Tarte’s illuminating serum. I actually got this serum off of Glambot, so it’s new to me, but not a new product. I really like how this serum allows me to wear fuller coverage foundations on my dry skin without making it look too dewy.
Concealer: Nyx’s HD lavender concealer mixed with Maybelline’s dark circle concealer.
Contour: Nyx’s HD blush in “Taupe.” I haven’t used this in awhile, and it’s a favorite of mine. I almost forgot how easily it blends into the skin.
Blush: City Color Cosmetics Baked Blush in “Rose.” I bought this awhile back and used it constantly for a month and then got distracted by other blushes. Welcome to my life. I love baked blushes in general, and this one gives a really healthy pink glow to my cheeks.
Highlight: Physicians Formula Nude Glow Shimmer Thingie. I loved this highlighter for so long and then got stuck on the Colourpop ones. This highlight is perfect for fair skin, well at least the first 4 light shades are. I used my Real techniques setting brush to apply this on my cheeks, down my nose, and on my cupid’s bow.
Brows: I used my Anastasia Dipbrow pomade in “ebony” today, because I haven’t used it in awhile. Yes, one of my brows are straighter than the other and not as arched. I am not someone that is overly concerned with symetrical brows because I’m a human being, and we are not symmetrical in any sense. I set my brows with Nyx’s tinted brow mascara in “black.”
Eyes: I pulled out my Too Faced Natural Matte palette today. This palette kinda got pushed aside when my Kat Von D palette arrived, but this one is really lovely. I love the warm shades in this one, and Honey Butter and Chocolate Cookie just scream Autumn to me.
My transition shade is Honey Butter. I have Chocolate Cookie in the crease and Risque on the outer corner. On my lids I actually have Colourpop’s “Onai” which is a really pretty pearlized white shade with a hint of shimmer.
I have Heaven on my brow bone and Strapless and Chocolate cookie on my lower lash line. My water line liner is City Color Cosmetics white retractable liner, and my liner is Physicians Formula eye booster in ultra black.
My lashes are Eylure’s Katy Perry Lashes. The “Oh Honey” ones. I really like these, but the band was hard to hide. I like black banded or invisible lashes, but these had a bit of white in the band, which sticks out like a sore thumb (as seen in a few photos) unless you really work black liner in there, which is a makeup disaster waiting to happen with my clumsy ass.
Inner corner highlight is Milani’s “Bella Ivory” single shadow.
On my lips today is Colourpop’s “Blood” lined with Nyx’s “Deep red” retractable liner. I haven’t gotten a chance to wear this lippie yet, and I’m in love. It truly does remind me of the color of blood. How do I know that? I got a big boo boo on my big toe last week and I almost fainted at the sight of my own blood. That’s right, the chick that loves horror movies and taxidermy got squeamish over a blood soaked paper towel.
And just because, here’s a sweet picture of me and my cat, Sailor. If you’re subscribed to my Youtube channel, you’ve probably seen her. My cat has the biggest catitude.
Anyway, that’s about it for today’s Face of the Day post! I hope you all enjoyed this simple look.
