I hope you are all excited it’s Friday!! I would be, but it’s Monday in my workweek right now. I can’t really complain though, I just had three days off xD Yesterday I had literally no place to be so I did some experimenting with my Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette.
Smokey eyes scare me. I’m so pale most of the time that I feel like a ghost with dark makeup. I usually end up doing the same style of eye makeup every day, but out of nowhere I decided, you know what? I’m going to try something new for me!
First I Primed with Urban Decay Primer Potion. Next, I pulled out my Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette and packed Black Currant onto my eyelash line. Next, I dipped a fluffy brush into Totally Fetch and mixed it with Dark Truffle. I blended this into the crease, and then blended Black Currant upwards across the entire lid. Things were looking a little chaotic, so I applied Malted to the outer corner for some definition. Next, I coated a brush with Sprinkles and Satin Sheets and applied it to my brow bone and blended into the crease to lighten up the look. Afterwards I took a tiny little brush and applied Black Currant just below my lower lash line.
I attempted to draw a cat eye with my favourite Illamasqua Precision Ink Liner. This stuff lasts all day, and the wand is pretty simple to work with. Next I lined my bottom waterline with it Cosmetics Waterproof Gel Eyeliner. This also lasts all day, which is a must for the waterline!
For Mascara I started with Benefit They’re Real! Eyelash Primer. I personally think this mascara is overpriced, but the wand does do a good job of separating and lengthening. Once it sat for a few minutes I layered on one coat of Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara. I thought the look needed darker, more dramatic lashes! For brows I used e.l.f. brow kit in light through my eyebrows. Which is totally not light, I do not recommend it if you are blonde! It only worked well for me after I dyed my hair brown.
Lips & Face
I lined my lips with Ofra Lip Liner in Wine, then applied Nyx Lip Lingerie in Ruffle Trim. After it dried I went over it with a Trust Fund Beauty lipgloss, because gosh darn it, it’s Summer!
I didn’t bother with a primer. I applied a thin coat of Dr. G Daily Safe BB Cream with a foundation brush, and then blended with a sponge. Next I applied Arbonne Bronzer, and followed up with my Pixi by Petra Rose Gold Blush Duo. For Highlight I used Becca Liquid Highlight in Opal. I seriously love this highlighter, it came in the Becca Glow on the Go kit from Sephora and I’ve been using it non stop! It really does merit a full size purchase (when I have money xD).
What’s your go to makeup look!? What should I try next?
Thanks for reading. This is a very old post of mine but you can see my makeup growth since this post in my Then Vs. Now Makeup Progression post!
