Face of the Day Friday — October 4, 2019

Face of the Day Friday


Hey guys! A simple date night inspired look today!

Because you know me, you probably know I never feel like I got enough sleep. So I started out by tapping The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG under my eyes to wake them up. I also want to keep my lashes nice and healthy, so I ran some Smack Beauty Bat Those Lashes Volumizing Lash Serum along my upper lash line.

To prep my face for makeup, I applied NYX Professional Makeup Pore Filler, attempting to start with a nice surface. I also hydrated my lips with Blossom Scented Lip Gloss in Mint.

To hide my under eye circles, I used a Morphe E9 Brush to apply the orange shade from my Ben Nye Media Pro Corrector Wheel trying to cancel out some of the blue. I then grabbed a Japonesque Multitasker Brush and evened out my skin tone down by buffing on Mally Beauty Ultimate Performance Professional Foundation in Light.

To give my face some definition, I cream contoured with LA Girl Cosmetics Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Toast, using a dampened Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge to blend the crap out of it. I then concealed and cream highlighted with Palladio Under Eyes Disguise Full Coverage Concealer in Vanilla Latte, this time again blending it out with another dampened Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.

For some cheek color, I used my finger to apply a tiny (I’m not kidding… be careful!) bit of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Creme Colour Concentrate in Grandma. I also added some glow (don’t worry now, more will come later!) to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose with NYX Professional Makeup Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam.

To set all that cream product, I used a Vera Mona Cake and Bake Makeup Sponge to pack some RCMA No-Color Powder on to the areas I earlier cream highlighted. After a few minutes, I used a Morphe M500 Brush to sweep away the excess powder. I also went over the areas I cream contoured with both a Morphe R41 Brush and a Japonesque Kumadori Blending Brush, giving it even more depth with the dark shades from the Frankie Rose Cosmetics Pro Contour Palette.

For a little more cheek color, I used a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush to sweep on some Santee Cosmetics Sun Kissed Mineral Formula Blush in 05. Then I (here it comes…) added even more glow with a Sigma E40 Brush and Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Illuminati.

I started my brows by applying some Model in a Bottle Long Lasting Eyebrow Sealer to them to get them to stay in place. I then tried (yes you read that right) to fill them in with Maybelline Tattoo Studio Brow Tint Pen I’m Deep Brown. That was just a complete train wreck. I hate it. Maybe it works better if you have more substantial brows, but it just didn’t work for me. At this point, I almost just said screw it and gave up. Instead, I grabbed an LA Girl Cosmetics 207 Brush, and filled in and shaped them with Malibu Glitz Dramatic Brows Eyebrow Gel in shade 3. Then, using a Younique Cream Shadow Brush, I cleaned up the edges with Dermablend Professional Cover Creme in Natural Beige.

And now for the eyes! Using a Morphe E17 Brush, I swept some NYX Professional Makeup Nude Matte Shadow in Get Naked onto the creases of my eyes. After dampening a Morphe E55 Brush with some Mehron Mixing Liquid, I used it to pack some NYX Professional Makeup Pigment in Old Hollywood.

After a couple coats of Palladio Double Agent Faux Lash Effect Mascara, I wanted just a little more. I decided to add some Kara Eyelashes in 415, using Duo Eyelash Adhesive to attach them. I then finished off the look with some Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Ready to Wear Liquid Lipstick in Stalker.

And that’s all, y’all! See you soon!

Face of the Day Friday — September 27, 2019

Face of the Day Friday


Hey guys! A complete look today. Something just less vibrant and colorful.

I started by faking that I slept by applying The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG to my under eye area. I also ran some Smack Beauty Bat Those Lashes Volumizing Lash Serum along my upper lash line, in hopes to keep them healthy and growing.

To prep my face for makeup, I patted on some NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Primer all over. I also hydrated my lips with some Lip Smart Powerful Hydration for Dry Lips.

To even out my skin tone, I used a Sigma 3DHD Kabuki Brush to buff some Frankie Rose Cosmetics Matte Perfection Foundation in Bare all over. To correct my dark circles, I applied LA Girl Cosmetics Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Light Yellow Corrector and blended to crap out of it with a dampened Beauty Blender.

For a little definition in my face, I cream contoured with LA Girl Cosmetics Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Warm Sand, this time blending it out with a dampened Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I also concealed and cream highlighted with Palladio Under Eyes Disguise Full Coverage Concealer in Vanilla Latte, choosing a Japonesque Fluff Concealer Brush to blend it out.

To start building some cheek color, I put on some Club Clio Peripera Ah! Much Real My Cushion Blusher in Pleased Pink. I also added some glow to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose with a NYX Professional Makeup Strobe of Genius Holographic Stick in Mermaid Armor.

To set all the cream product, I used a Morphe E41 Brush to sweep some Jouer Cosmetics Mineral Powder in Perle Naturel all over. I also went over the areas I earlier cream contoured with both a Morphe G18 Brush and a Morphe M530 Brush, to give it a little more depth with Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation in Deep Mocha.

To add a little more cheek color, I used a Sigma F15 Brush to sweep on some Physicians Formula Multi-Colored Blush in Blushing Berry. I also added even more glow (cue eye roll) with a Morphe M501 Brush and some Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Yasss!

To fill in and shape my brows today, I used a Morphe E38 Brush and some NYX Professional Makeup Eyebrow Cake Powder in Dark Brown. I then cleaned up the edges with a Morphe M508 Brush and Jouer Cosmetics Perfector in Naturel.

And now for the eyes! I used a Morphe M505 Brush to sweep some LA Colors Eyeshadow in Terra-cotta into the crease of my eyes. I then used an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush to add some NYX Professional Makeup Glitter Primer to my eyelids. Directly on top of that, I used a Morphe E14 Brush to pack on some W3LL People Elitist Mineral Eyeshadow in 814. I then took a Sigma E30 Brush to add more NYX Professional Makeup Glitter Primer to my lower lash line. I then used a Real Techniques Brow Brush to add some NYX Professional Makeup Pigment in Venetian right on top of that.

After a couple coats of L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara, I wanted a little more. Not much, just a tiny bit. So I added a pair of Red Cherry Eyelashes in Harley, using Duo Brush On Adhesive with Vitamins to attach them. I then completed the look by applying Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Ready to Wear Lip Tar in Vintage.

And that’s all, y’all! See you soon!

Face of the Day Friday — September 20, 2019

Face of the Day Friday


Hey guys! A little bit of a more bold look today, with a blue liner and a red lip.

I once again am lacking real sleep, so I woke up my under eye area with The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. I also want to keep my lashes healthy (what with wearing falsies all the time), so I ran some Smack Beauty Bat Those Lashes Volumizing Lash Serum along my upper lash line.

Because my skin has been a little dry and dull lately, I patted on some Acure Brilliantly Brightening Day Cream. I also hydrated my lips with Smith’s Rosebud Salve Balm.

To even out my complexion, I applied NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation in Vanilla, buffing the crap out of it with a Morphe M439 Brush. To get a little definition in my face, I cream contoured with a Morphe R9 Brush and some Jouer Cosmetics Perfector in Chestnut. I also concealed and cream highlighted with some Santee Cosmetics Just Kolour Invisible Cover Concealer in Vanilla, blending it out with a Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush.

For a little cheek color, I applied some Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tint in Very Charming, letting the warmth of my fingers blend it in. I also added some glow to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose by patting on some Inika Light Reflect Highlighting Creme.

To set all that cream product, I used a Morphe G5 Brush to sweep some Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Buff all over. I also used both a Morphe Y22 Brush and a Morphe E56 Brush to give the areas I earlier cream contoured a little more depth with Palladio Matte Bronzer in Teeny Bikini.

Using an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Powder Brush, I added even more cheek color with NYX Professional Makeup Powder Blush in Pinched. And of course, you know I had to add even more glow. I grabbed a Morphe M310 Brush, and used it to sweep all the colors combined from the NYX Professional Makeup Love You So Mochi Highlighting Palette in Arcade Glam on my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose.

To fill in and shape my brows today, I used a LA Girl Cosmetics 207 Brush and some Inglot AMC Brow Liner Gel in 20. I then cleaned up the edges with a Bare Minerals Max Coverage Concealer Brush and a bit of Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation in 209.

And now for the eyes! I started by using a Morphe E22 Brush to sweep some NYX Professional Makeup Nude Matte Shadow in Craving into the crease of my eyes. I then used a Morphe E32 Brush to pat some NYX Professional Makeup Glitter Primer on to my eyelids. Directly on top of that, I used a Morphe E14 Brush to pack some LA Colors Cosmetics Shimmering Loose Eyeshadow in Snow White.

Next, I wanted a little pop of color. I added a wing liner with NYX Professional Makeup Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Blue. I then added a couple coats of Lancôme Mon Sieur Big Mascara.

After deciding that wasn’t quite enough, I added a pair of Red Cherry Eyelashes in 415, attaching them with Duo Eyelash Adhesive.

To complete the look, I swept some NYX Professional Makeup Plush Gel Lipstick in Karma Kiss on my lips.

And that’s all, y’all! See you soon!

Face of the Day Friday


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!

Face of the Day Friday


Hey guys! A little bit of drama for you today!

I started by faking sleep by applying The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. I also want my lashes to keep growing, so I ran some Smack Beauty Bat Those Lashes Volumizing Lash Serum along my upper lash line.

Because I have a little redness in my face today, I prepped my face for makeup by patting on some e.l.f. Cosmetics Tone Adjusting Face Primer in Neutralizing Green. I also went ahead and hydrated my lips with Lip Smart Powerful Hydration for Dry Lips.

To even out my skin tone, I applied NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation in Natural, blending the crap out of it with a Japonesque Multitasker Brush. I also took the time to contour my nose using a NYX Professional Makeup Micro-Contour Duo Pencil in Light, just letting the warmth of my fingertips blend it out. I also cream highlighted and contoured my face with NYX Professional Makeup Wonder Stick Highlight and Contour Stick in Medium/Tan, blending both the highlight shade and the contour shade with a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.

To get a bit of color on my cheeks, I applied some Club Clio Peripera Ah! Much Real My Cushion Blusher in Pleased Pink. I also added some glow to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose with The Beauty Crop Lighting Crew Highlighting Cream.

To set all that cream product, I grabbed a Vera Mona Cake and Bake Makeup Sponge and packed some RCMA No-Color Powder on to the areas I earlier cream highlighted. After a few minutes, I used a Morphe M500 Brush to sweep away the excess. I then used both a Morphe G18 Brush and a Morphe M530 Brush to deepens the areas I cream contoured earlier with some Sephora Matte Perfection Powder Foundation in Deep Mocha.

Then I added a bit more cheek color by using a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush to sweep on some Frankie Rose Cosmetics Blush in Romantica. And of course (cue eye roll) I added more glow by taking a Sigma E40 Brush and adding some Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Conceited to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose.

To fill in and shape my brows today I used a Sigma E65 Brush and some NYX Professional Makeup Eyebrow Cake Powder in Dark Brown. I then set them with some Model in a Bottle Long Lasting Eyebrow Sealer. To clean up the edges, I used a Younique Cream Shadow Brush and some Jouer Cosmetics Perfector in Naturel.

And now for the eyes! I used a Real Techniques Domed Shadow Brush to sweep some Jouer Cosmetics Powder Eyeshadow in Caviar into the crease of my eyes. I then used an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush to apply some NYX Professional Makeup Glitter Primer onto my eyelids. Directly on top of that, I used a Sigma E55 Brush to pack some NYX Professional Makeup Pigment in Metallic Velvet on.

And of course, I had to add a little sparkle. After dampening a Sigma E75 Brush with some Mehron Mixing Liquid, I used it to apply some LA Splash Cosmetics Crystallized Glitter in Thistle to my lower lash line.

After a couple coats of Velvet 59 My Fair Lashes Mascara, I decided I needed a little drama. I applied a pair of the second pair of lashes from the Violet Voss Eye Believe in Unicorns Lash Set, using Duo Eyelash Adhesive to attach them. Then, to complete the look, I swept on some Coloured Raine Liquid Lipstick in Raine Fever.

And that’s all, y’all! See you soon!
