Today’s blog is going to be my makeup of the day. I did a warm smokey eye and I think it turned out really pretty. I used a new foundation and I am not sure how I feel about it yet. I’ll have to give it a few more try’s before I can make a complete review on the product. I hope you like my new post (:
FACE: To start off I used the E.L.F. mineral face primer. I find this to be the same consistency as the smashbox photo ready primer. For my foundation I used the cover girl ready set gorgeous in the shade “105 Classic Ivory”. This was a great match for my skin tone and I am very happy about that. I used the Naked skin concealer for highlighting under neath my eyes. I like this product although I do not think that it should be costing $29.00. To set all my makeup I used the e.l.f. high definition powder. I really really like this product and it only costs $6.00. Bronzer i used my essence sun club. This bronzer smells like coconuts and sunscreen. You have to make sure you use a light hand though because its very warm/orangey. Blush I used the Elf contouring blush and bronzing powder palette. This blush is very similar to Nars Orgasm. Last but not least highlighter… Of course I used my colourpop super shock cheek in the shade “monster”.
EYES: For the eyes I ended up using my Jaclyn Hill favorites palette by Morphe. I just purchased the 350 and cannot wait till that arrives. To start off i put these 2 shades in my crease and blended them out. They are both very very warm browns.
Next I added the lid color. I stated off using a brush that I sprayed with Mac fix plus, but I ended up just dabbing on this shade with my finger.
After adding the lid color I wanted to add dimension and depth to the outer “v” of my eye so I added in a darker brown
Once I added the color to the outer “v” I blended until there was no harsh lines. Then I went in and added the color to the lower lash line. And that was it!
For mascara, eyeliner and eyebrows I used the Too Faced better than sex, L’Oreal infallible eye liner and the Anastasia brow definer in the shade caramel. I really enjoy all three of these products.
Here is the finished look. I hope you guys enjoyed reading today’s blog. Let me know what you think in the comments section below!
