It’s Thursday, and I do have a new “face of the day” post this week! How is everyone’s October going so far? I’ve mostly been hanging out with my kids, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Most of the fall festivals don’t start for another couple of weeks in my city.
Anyway, today I wanted to share another smokey eye that doesn’t require winged liner with a dark lip. These looks surprisingly don’t take long, and it’s probably because I delete 30 mins of crying over my eyeliner. However, I do have lashes on. I feel it’s a nice touch to any smokey eye.
Primer: Too Faced HangoverX primer
Foundation & Powder: It Cosmetics CC Cream + Illumination in “Fair.” I got this CC cream off of Glambot for relatively cheap (compared to the full retail price) and I was so excited to try it out! Fair is actually a great color match for me, and this CC cream is very full coverage, but doesn’t look cakey. I’m impressed so far! Powder is my usual, Laura Geller Balance and Brightening powder in “Porcelain.”
Concealer: Nyx Cosmetics HD concealer in Porcelain and Lavender. Set with Physicians Formula Correcting Powder in Translucent.
Contour: Nyx HD Blush in “Taupe.” I just hit pan today while using this. Nose Contour is the City Color Cosmetics contour duo in “Light”
Blush: City Color Cosmetics Matte Blush in “Blackberry.” I do have a coupon code, if you enter “Lunafayebeauty” on citycolorcosmetics.com you can save 10%. I love these matte blushes though. Very pigmented, easy to blend, affordable, and they last a long time on my cheeks.
Highlight: The Balm’s “Mary Lou-Manizer”
Brows: Nyx brow gel in “Black” and Hard Candy’s Brows now duo in Medium/Dark.
Eye Primer: I used my concealer to prime
On my lid: I took out my Too Faced Chocolate Bar today since it’s one of my favorite neutral palettes. I used Salted Caramel as my transition shade and then put Milk chocolate on the crease as well. On my entire lid I put semi sweet down with a flat brush.
I then took “Central Perk” by Colourpop and put that on the outside. You could easily use Cherry Cordial, but I am obsessed with Central perk at the moment.
I then smudged ‘Straight Trippin” by Colourpop on the lash line and applied my favorite Kiss #11 lashes.
Lower lash line: liner is Nyx’s tres jolie pencil in black. I smudged Central Perk, Semi sweet, and Salted Caramel on the lash line. Mascara is Maybelline’s Lash Sensational. Inner corner highlight is Champagne Truffle from the Chocolate Bar palette.
Lips: Necromancy Cosmetic’s “Oh No, Nancy.” I went back and forth about getting Melt Cosmetics’ “Catsuit,” but saw this one named after The Craft and bought it instead. I am not disappointed in this purchase either. This formula went on very smooth, yet remained very matte. I’m in love with it so far, and I may be getting a few more shades from their “We are the Weirdos” collection. I mean, that collection was named after me. It took me about 2 passes on the lips to get the pigmentation I wanted, which isn’t unusual for a very matte formula.
Scarf: This was a Ross find that costed me a whopping $6! I love this scarf, it’s so adorable and I may wear it past Halloween. They actually had a few really cute Halloween scarves!
That’s it for today’s Face of the Day post! I hope you all are enjoying these Fall looks both on here and my youtube channel! I’ve had a blast creating them, that’s for sure. I love how much the cooler weather and darker shades inspire me. I hope you’re all having lovely days, and if you have any requests for future looks, let me know!
