Makeup of the Day – Smoky Eye + Nude Lip

So, I finally replaced my waaaaaaay too old Beauty Blender.  I couldn’t bring myself to blow the cash on another (got the first one in a swap, anyway), so I got the Real Techniques sponge last night at Walgreens.  For 1/4 the price, I actually like it better!  Then again, almost everyone on YouTube agrees, it seems.  I got the double pack for $10.00.

Today’s makeup is a more dramatic eye and well, I needed moisture for my lips, so I chose a Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick and still put gloss over it.

  
FACE:  

Tarte Clean Slate Poreless Primer around t-zone, Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hr Foundation 010 Light Porcelain, MAC Pink Studio Finish Concealer under NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly under the eyes set with MAC Set Powder in Invisible, spot concealed with NC15 MAC Studio Finish Concealer, whole face set with MAC Set in Invisible, MAC Sculpt Powder for contouring in Bone Beige, NYX Cream Blush in Natural

EYES: 

Urban Decay Primer Potion, Urban Decay Smoked Palette (green shade on lid and for lower liner, dark brown in crease, pale shade for highlight), Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Perversion for tightlining, Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner in black for top liner, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Black

LIPS:

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Let’s Get Naked with Lorac gloss in Rock and Roll 

Makeup of the Day – Soft Fall Look 

Today, I kept my makeup casual and easy.  I put on my foubdation, concealer, and cream eyeshadows with my fingers and wore cream blush for extra hydration.  I just wasn’t feeling like anything too bold today.  I love this soft look!

  
FACE:

Rimmel Match Perfection 010 Light Porcelain, MAC Concealer Palette Pink under eyes w/ NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and NW10 to spot conceal, MAC Set Powder Invisible, NYX Cream Blush Boho Chic, MAC Sculpt Powder Bone Beige for very light contour

EYES:  Bobbi Brown bone Cream Eyeshadow, Urban Decay Naked 3 palette (omg I forgot the shades?!), Maybelline Master Precise black liquid liner, Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara Very Black (let’s never be apart again), Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Duo Ebony (light shade)

LIPS:  Very light layer of Nuxe Rève de Miel lip balm under Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Lovecraft

PS — NYX Cream Blushes are on clearance at Target for about $4!  I got “Boho Chic” and “Natural.”  I already had “Glow.”  I love these when my cheeks are dry in the winter, so I should be good to go for the cold months ahead!
