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!

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.

A pink and brown eye FOTD

I wanted to do something a little different than I usually do. Even though it ended up turning out a lot like my usual looks.

The L’oreal Infallible shadow in “always pearly pink” was much more frosty than it was pink. This is the shade on my lid, by the way.

In my crease I used the MAC shadow in “cork” to help the darker shade, Elizabeth Arden brow powder and eyeliner in “brunette” , to blend easier.

As my base shade I used Wet n Wilds “creme brulee”.

I used the Starlooks Pro liquid liner in ” black”. I also used the Covergirl Plumpify mascara again, I am really loving it.
My shadow primer was Too Faced Shadow Insurance.  I also used the Elizabeth Arden shade to smoke out my under eye just a bit.

I used to ELF contour palette to contour, bronze and highlight. I used the Covergirl TruBlend baked blush in “Medium Rose”.

I used the Revlon Color stay foundation and the Maybelline Better Skin concealer. I then set it all with the ELF color correcting powder.

On my lips is the NYC Liquid Lipshine in ” Honey on the Hudson”.

I hope you enjoyed this look. I have purchased a new camera, so in a few days the picture quality will improve tremendously. Thanks for reading!
