Today’s “Face of the Day” features a few oldies and some newbies.
I love my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, but I find that I rarely pull it out for whatever reason. I’m trying to use it more, so I decided to do a mauve themed look.
For my base I used the new BH Cosmetics HD Studio Pro foundation (review will be coming up soon once I test it out more) and I used the Too Faced HangoveRX primer just to hydrate my face a bit. I actually did powder my face a bit with the Laura Geller balance and brightening powder in “porcelain”
Contour is the darker shade from the “dulce de leche” Wet n Wild contour palette. This contour shade is awesome for pale skin tones, and it’s totally worth the $4 even though I can’t really use the highlighting side.
Blush is “Cameo” by Hikari Cosmetics, which is just a really pretty light pink shade. It’s also matte! I was so impressed by the shade “Tango” that I got from Hikari in my Ipsy bag, that I ended up taking advantage of their coupon code last month and ordered another blush. They’re really buttery and pigmented, and there’s a lot of product in the pan.
Highlight is “Spoon” by Colourpop Cosmetics, and I just did a full review with swatches on the 3 I ordered. Spoon is a lovely champagne shade, which is what I gravitate towards on a daily basis.
My brows are Nyx Tame and Frame in “espresso” which might be a bit too light now that my hair is freshly dyed black, but oh well.
For my eyes I used “Tease” by Urban Decay as my transition shade, and then packed “Nooner” from the Naked 3 into my crease. I then took “Swan” by Colour pop and put that all over my lid, and then put “Liar” from the Naked 3 on the outer corner of my eye.
Liner is Physicians Formula eye booster in “Ultra black” and lashes are Kiss #11
Lower lash line is “Tease” and “Nooner” blended out with Rimmel Scandal eyes in “Nude” on my water line. Mascara is Covergirl Supersizer (also new to drugstores) “Strange” from the Naked 3 is on my brow bone, and “Swan” is my inner corner highlight.
My lips are lined with “Lumiere” by Colourpop, with “Lala” by Nyx cosmetics over top. LaLa is like Thalia’s darker sister. A bit more brown toned, but still so so gorgeous. If you haven’t ever tried Nyx round case lipsticks, do it. They’re some of my favorite lipsticks in my collection, and that’s even over many of my higher end lipsticks.
That’s it for today’s Face of the Day post, I really hope you all enjoyed this mauve themed look!
