A Quick Post on the Products that I used…
I am listing each product as I would put them on..
Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer has a more of a watery type consistency, which I’m not too keen on but it performs fabulously once I got over the consistency. I do still prefer my MAC Prep + Prime and do enjoy changing up my products as there is always something new to check out.
Benefits Porefessional was used around my nose area and forehead where my pores are more prominent. It seems to nicely prepare my skin for my foundation and leaves a nice smooth finish. I feel that the Hourglass and the Benefit Primer do a great job together and the desired effect is achieved, which is a great base for my foundation. Well done!
Lorac’s Eye Primer was patted gently on my eye lid area. First time using this primer so I don’t have any comments to make on it. I usually use NAR’s eye primer or a MAC’s paint pot in Painterly or Groundwork.
I used the Dior Skin in #30 Beige foundation, which also has an SPF of 15. One of my top 3 foundations and I love it because to blends so nice and gives me a great flawless finish.
Next is the NARS concealer in Custard to hide my dark circles and to lighten up my under eye area.
To set my concealer and foundation I used the Laura Mercier translucent finishing powder, one word “flawless”. Also my holy grail finishing powder!
To fill in my brows, I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Medium and used the spooley from the ABH Brow Wiz to blend the product throughout my barely there brows.
On to my cheeks, where I used the Charlotte Tilbury’s Cheek to Chic Blush in Sex on Fire to use as a slight contour and blush. I tried something a little different and used the Pop part (middle) of the product as the contour and the Swish part (Outter) as the blush. This left me with a very soft blended look.
For my highlight I pulled out the big guns, the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in Copper Diamond. OMG, I am really loving this product, it gives me a really nice highlight and blends well with which ever blush I am using that day. To me, on my complexion, I get a soft golden glow, smoking! Awesome job Bobbie Brown.
I like to do my foundation, cheeks and brows before my eyeshadow.
For my eyeshadow I used two palettes, the ABH Maya Mia and the Charlotte Tilbury’s Sophisticate palette. I used the lighter shades from the CT palette and Caramel from the Maya Mia palette. I did not do a strong eyeshadow as I was going for a more natural look.
My mascara was the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara which has been a great go to mascara for giving me the thick lash look. You can see in this picture that I barely even have lashes, which is why I need all the help I can get from a mascara.
The only product that I used and is not in the picture is MAC’s Finishing Spray… Love!
So there you have it, my friends, look of the day. Until next, keep smiling..it looks good on you and you never know who you may be inspiring 🙂
