Sunday FOTD Out and About

I had a nice day out and about today. We picked up some stuff we needed for the house, groceries, and some other things. P.S. I have a little makeup haul that will be posted soon!

While I was getting ready this morning I was going to use My Urban Decay Naked Palette to do my eyes. It is my go to when I am not trying to be super creative. When I was looking through my drawers for it, I am really unorganized I am working on it, I found the Smashbox Full Exposure Travel Palette under some other stuff! I got this as a little stocking stuffer over Christmas, but I never really played with it. I took the plunge and did so today.

To prime my eyes I used the Rimmel Hide the Blemish concealer in Ivory. I do not like this as a concealer, but it is actually a pretty great eye primer, it covers the dark veins and such. I used the light pink shade, which is labeled as “M3” on the back of the palette, as my transition/blending shade. I used the gray shade, labeled as “M6”, in my crease. The dark brown shade, “M1”, I used in my outer V. For my lid I used the sparkly pink shade, “S3”. This wasn’t light enough for me so I went in with the shade next to it, “S4” and placed it over top. I used the cream shade, “M4”, as my brow bone highlight and in my inner corner.

I then used my usual liquid liner, the Starlooks pro luxe pen in “jet”, to line my upper lash line and do a small flick. I then realized that the liner is FINALLY done, the pigmentation just wasn’t there. So I went over it with the Urban Decay Shadow in “Blackout”. This shade is available in the Naked 2 palette, but I purchased it in a single also, I never use a black shadow besides this one. It blows MAC “Carbon” out of the water.

On my lips is the Whipped liquid lipstick from Buxom in the shade “Centerfold” that I got in my April Ipsy bag!

I did my usual foundation routine, I try to use up products before opening new ones which for what I do isn’t a good idea. I have a ton of foundation just waiting to be opened. I set my face with the Coty Air Spun powder, besides my under eyes, I used the highlight shade in the Wet n’ Wild Contour Palette in the shade “Caramel Toffee”. I love using this powder to set my under eye area! I also used the contour shade in this palette to lightly contour.

I used the City Color Be Matte blush in “Papaya”. Used the Physicians Formula Season to Season bronzer in “light to medium” to bronze with.  I high lighted my face with the L’oreal True Match Lumi high lighter in “Rose”.

When I was finished I spritzed my face with MAC Fix +.

I hope you enjoyed this look! What makeup do you prefer to use? How was your Sunday? Let’s talk!

My Favorite: Drugstore Mattes

drugstoremattes

* Only includes items you can find at drugstores, nothing that is drugstore priced, by can only be ordered online*

It may come as a surprise to you, but I love drugstore make-up. Only kidding, it’s almost all I talk about on the safe place of Beauty and TidBits. It used to be near impossible to find matte products at the drugstore, but as the matte make-up trend has taken off, more have popped up. However, it is still a bit hard to find GOOD ones. Well, no worries I am here to help! Continue reading “My Favorite: Drugstore Mattes”

How I did my make-up in High School: A fun little throwback.

hs1

While getting ready this morning I was trying to figure out how I was going to attempt to look like a human being, I had a great idea. I wanted to do my make-up how I did back in the day, I have only been graduated since December 2013, but you get what I am saying! So, I raided my make-up collection to see if I still owned the same products that I used, and not so shockingly I had them all. Obviously not the EXACT same products I used, I have no interest in putting an avoidable concoction of bacteria on my face. If you want to know how I got my super simple look (which you can view below), and see what I think now about my old holy grail products, please keep reading <3.

My go to makeup look! Only using drugstore products!

Let’s start with the eyes!

I mixed shades 4 and 7 as my transition shade. This is the Sonia Kashuk eye on textured neutral palette, it is pretty great. I then used shade 5 all over the lid. Shade 2 was my inner corner highlight.

I then used the L’oreal color riche single in” pain au chocolate”
As my actual crease shade. I then used Cover Girls ” brown smoulder ” to darken up my outer V.

I also used essence black liquid liner and the covergirl mascara in plumpify ( also in black).

I assume we all know what to do with foundation and concealer. Just to note, I used Maybellines fit me concealer in cafe as my contour shade.

I then used the Coty  powder in translucent to bake. By the way, this sponge is see cheap at Walmart, it is actually pretty nice! I set the rest of !y face with Essences all about matte powder.

I used the ELF contour palette to highlight and set my contour. I also bronzed the rest of my face with Rimmels  Sundance bronzer.

I used Wet n Wilds Rose Champagne blush. I am loving it right now.

*** the picture of the lip product I was wearing did not transfer. It was one of L’oreals liquid lipsticks with a balm at the other end in never ending nutmeg.
****** I trade up the lip products a lot. This is one I didn’t like. After 30 mins it started to crust up and flake off.
