Hey guys! Just a simple look today.
I once again faked some decent sleep by applying The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. I also am hoping to keep my lashes nice and healthy, so I swept some Smack Beauty Bat Those Lashes Volumizing Lash Serum along my upper lash line.
To prep my face for makeup, I applied some NYX Professional Makeup Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer (if you haven’t tried it, this stuff is pretty awesome!) I also hydrated my lips for the matte lipstick I’d be applying later with Grande Lips Hydrating Lip Plumper.
Dealing with a little redness, I spot corrected with LA Girl Cosmetics Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Green Corrector, using a dampened Beauty Blender to blend it in a bit. I then even out my skin tone with The Ordinary Colours Coverage Foundation in 1.2YG, buffing it in like crazy with another dampened Beauty Blender.
To get some definition in my face, I cream highlighted and contoured using a NYX Professional Makeup Wonder Stick Highlight and Contour Stick in Universal. To blend out the contour shade I used a dampened Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, and to blend out the highlight shade, I used a Morphe G37 Brush.
To achieve some flush on my cheeks, I used my fingers to apply Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Creme Colour Concentrate in Grandma (be careful here, this stuff is really concentrated). I also added some glow to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose with Temptu Silicone Based Highlighter in Champagne Shimmer.
To set all that cream product, I grabbed a Morphe E52 Brush, and used it to dust on some Jouer Cosmetics Mineral Powder in Perle d’Ivoire. I also went over the areas I earlier cream contoured with both a Japonesque Kumadori Blending Brush and a Morphe R41 Brush to give it even more depth with the dark shades from my Frankie Rose Cosmetics Pro Contour Palette.
For a little more cheek color, I grabbed a Sigma F40 Brush and swept some Frankie Rose Cosmetics Blush in Peachy Pink on them. I also added more glow to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose (duh!), using a Morphe M501 Brush and some Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Gold Digger.
To fill in and shape my brows today, I used a Japonesque Angled Brow Brush and By Nanda Long Lasting Coloring Eyebrow in 05. I then cleaned up the edges with a Morphe M508 Brush and some Dermablend Professional Cover Creme in Natural Beige.
And now for the eyes! Starting with a Frankie Rose Cosmetics 725 Brush, I swept some NYX Professional Makeup Hot Singles Eyeshadow in Sex Kitten into the creases of my eyes.
Then, using a Morphe E32 Brush, I added some NYX Professional Makeup Glitter Primer to my eyelids. Directly on top of that, I used a Morphe E14 Brush to pack some e.l.f. Cosmetics Mineral Eyeshadow in Bronzed.
After a couple coats of Lancôme Mon Sieur Big Mascara, I decided I need a little more drama. I added the third pair of lashes from the Violet Voss Eye Believe in Unicorns Lash Set, attaching them with some Duo Brush On Adhesive with Vitamins.
To complete the look, I added some Dose of Colors Liquid Lipstick in Kiss of Fire and called it a day.
And that’s all, y’all! See you soon!
