MAKEUP OF THE DAY
Here's the aftermath of doing my makeup this morning.
I went for the REVLON Colorstay Whipped Foundation as my base.....that is definitely my go-to everyday makeup foundation.
For concealer, I mixed both the Loreal Tru Match Concealer and the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer for under my eyes. I used my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light Plus to set my concealer and the foundation.
To prime my eyelids, I used the Too Faced Shadow Insurance...a staple that should be in everyone's makeup collection. I went for a neutral eye, using the Urban Decay NAKED 2 Palette and the NAKED Basics Palette. You can never go wrong with those neutral shadows. I went for a cat eye, using my e.l.f. Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. The eyeliner is only $3, and it is a hidden gem.
For mascara, I went with Maybelline Volum' Express The Colossal....and curled my lashes of course. Curling your lashes makes such a huge difference -- it really opens up your eyes!
For my brows, I tried out my new N.Y.X. Eyebrow Pencil and Brush -- I normally stick to a powder for my eyebrows, and after using the pencil, I was a bit disappointed. I think I just got too dark of a shade, so I'm not ruling out eyebrow pencils all together.
For blush, I mixed my MAC Mineralize Blush in Gentle with my e.l.f. Baked Blush in (I forgot the name!) a light pink/coral shade. I applied the blush with my new MAC Duo Fiber Brush....and I love the soft effect! I used my Pixi highlighter to add some brightness to my face as well....and I set my makeup with my MAC Fix+.
I would highly recommend MAC Fix+ to set your makeup, and even for underneath your makeup. It is useful, and the large bottle is about $22.
And finally for my lips: I used my new Rimmel London Lipstick in Pink Chic, and topped it with a NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige (my favorite).
I hope everyone's having a great day!
