It’s Thursday, and I do have a Face of the Day post for you all! I have been wanting to share several looks using the Morphe 35O palette for awhile now, so that’s what I’m doing today! Yes, I fought the presale madness to get this palette. I actually ordered this within the first 15 mins and didn’t get a shipping code until a few weeks later. So, if you still haven’t received yours, be patient. I’ve seen some pretty rude comments on the Morphe page lately. They were clear about when they would be shipping presale orders, so I was actually surprised when I received mine randomly instead of getting it a few weeks ago, like I had planned.
I will say this palette is worth the wait though, and I will be posting swatches of it very very soon!
Today’s look is very warm, and involves orange shades on fair skin. Gasp! I know, a year ago I wouldn’t have dared put orange on my eyes, but the past few months have opened my makeup heart a bit, and I have been wanting to play with more warm tones. Honestly, if there’s a shade that you want to wear, just go for it. Confidence is everything, and sometimes a bold (or warm, in my case) change in style is what you need to shake things up.
Primer: Nivea Men’s Post Shaving Balm
Foundation: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum mixed with Manic Panic’s dream tone. Yes, I still use dewy foundations in Fall. Even though this foundation is a bit too yellow for me, I’m determined to use it and another foundation up before I can justify getting the new Too Faced Born This Way foundation.
Concealer: Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer in Chantilly
Powders: Laura Geller Balance and Brightening Powder in Porcelain and Elf HD undereye setting powder.
Bronzer: Tarte’s Park Ave. Princess Bronzer. I really love this bronzer and the warmth it brings to my face.
Contour: Nyx HD blush in “taupe.”
Blush: Milani’s “Awakening Rose” blush. Ah, I haven’t worn this in like…two weeks? I love this blush, we all know that.
Highlight: Nyx’s “Ritualistic” illuminator. I brought this back out after seeing it compared to Nar’s “Albatross” highlight. This is a gorgeous white gold highlight that flatters multiple skin tones, including fair skin tones.
Brows: Nyx tame and frame brow in “espresso” set with their brow mascara in black.
Primer: Hard Candy eye primer
Palette of choice: Morphe 35O palette. I wish I could give names, but I just did my usual style of eye makeup to test this bad boy out. I used a warm transition shade, one of the bright oranges in this palette after that, and then mixed that with a orange-y brown lower in the crease. I used a pink shimmer shade on the lid and a dark brown smoked out on the outter v of the eye.
Liner & Lashes: Liner is actually “War of Five Armies” by Shiro Cosmetics. I use this as liner often, because it’s a gorgeous reddish brown shade. I mixed the loose shadow with Medusa Makeup’s liner medium and flicked it out. Lashes are the Ardell Double Wispies. Mascara used on top and bottom lashes was Maybelline Lash Sensational lashes.
Lower Lash line: I put War of Five Armies in my water line while it was still wet and took the orange and an orange-y brown shade and smoked that out into an oblivion. I mean, we should be used to this by now from me. It’s just what I like.
Lipstick: Black Moon Cosmetics “Libra” lined with Nyx’s “Nude Truffle.” I promise I have a review on these coming soon, I just really wanted to test them out and I am a bit behind on posts because I got sick and I’ve been wanting to spend more time playing outside with my kids. I do love this shade though, it’s the perfect everyday Fall nude for my skin tone!
Necklace is from Worship 13 🙂 it’s the Vintage witch cat pendant!
That’s it for today’s look! I hope you all enjoyed this warm look, and next week I will be showing a few simple last minute costumes to put together for Halloween. Because as a mom I know the Halloween struggle of getting everyone else’s costumes perfect and then the day of Halloween thinking, “Okay, but what about me?” Ha!
As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!
