I did a look last weekend I really liked and want to share it. I decided to go all-in on one of those “flawless” skin effects like the IG makeup artists do. Meaning, a TON of makeup – primer, foundation, concealers, and a finishing powder, and that was just to start!
It was so entertaining, and completely ridiculous for a Sunday in Eugene, Oregon. Ah well.
First, though: I’ve switched up my hair! Ever since my Halloween costume for our party, I’ve been wearing it in a big vertical swoop now, and even still playing more with the temporary gold hair color paste.
Even though my bruises are gone and my scars much faded (although I am still getting these wicked new underye circles when I get tired), I’ve decided to keep using my new concealers. I’ve learned different ones work in different ways for different parts of the face. It’s been a very steep learning curve.
Anyway, here’s the product list:
Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer
Becca Undereye Corrector
Nars SheerGlow Foundation
It Cosmetics CC+ Powder
Kevyn Aucoin Contour
RMS Living Luminizer
The Balm Eyeshadow
Smashbox DoubleExposure Shadow
Clinique Lash Primer
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Color
LimeCrime Bushy Brow Strong Hold Gel
NARS Rouge A Levres Jolie Mome
Lipstick Queen Liner in Wine
NYX Setting Spray
I feel rather dashing!
I do love playing with my makeup! If you’d like me to start doing videos instead of just still photos, lmk.
And I have gathered another huge pile of samples, so let’s do another giveaway! Comment substantively (even answering the yes/no on videos) on FB and I’ll enter you in a random drawing for 5-6 prestige/indie samples.
