I’ve seen the likes of Allie Glines and RawBeautyKristi do this, and I adore the concept! It is just lovely to see what people are wanting to use for the day, that they trust to take them throughout the day to look fab! So I thought I would jump in this series and thought I would show you what I’m currently wanting to use on a day when I’m not reviewing things!
I wanted to go for a nice natural but glamorous look! Nice full coverage skin (didn’t even need concealer, thanks to the foundation) and highlighted, lovely fall lip and a simple eye look. But with lashes! So I chose the following products because I felt like they are solid choices to get me through the day!
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water
MUA Pro Base Longwear Foundation (101)
BareMinerals Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo
La Girl Pro Contour Powder (2)
Milani Baked Blush (Luminoso)
Jeffree Star Skin Frost (Peach Goddess)
Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil (3)
No7 Eyeshadow (Matte Mocha)
MAC Paint Pot (Painterly)
Lime Crime Venus XL II Palette (Thorn, Ripe)
Essence Lash Princess Mascara (False Lash Effect)
Ardell “Wispies” Lashes
NYX Lip Liner (Mahogany)
MAC “Matte” Lipstick (Verve)
NYX Candy Slick Lip Colour (S’more Please)
And this was the look I created, and I adored the finish! I started with the face, and sprayed my face with the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water. I then took a buffing brush and applied my foundation and blended that into the skin! This is an amazing foundation that I hear NO one talk about! It is a dupe of the Fenty Pro Filt’r! But more full coverage! So smoothing on the face! I then went into my contour and blush and blended those to define my cheekbones! And then highlighted the tops of my cheekbones, after spraying my face again to help the highlight adhere and shine brighter! I then defined my eyebrows and applied my base so I could start my eyeshadow. I wanted a simple brown eye (I know, a rarity for me!) but I was feeling the autumn vibe! I went into the shade Thorn (a gorgeous bronze with blue and purple sparkle!) on my finger and pressed that over my lid. And then went into the shade Ripe and blended that into my crease and my lower lash line and that was the eye look done, so simple! I then applied my lashes, deep breaths! It took a while with my shaky hands but we got there. I then applied my mascara! And finally lips! I lined my lips, applied the lipstick and then slicked the lipgloss over the top! I loved the effect the lips gave to the look! Made it so autumnal and classy! Final spritz of the face to set I all in place and taa daa! We are completed!
