FOTD: Weird weather...

     The weather was really weird today. A couple hours of overcast, an hour of sun, 20 minutes of hardcore raining, half an hour of sun, and now it's overcast again. I spent the day thinking that I should be doing homework, but not doing it... whatever, I have tomorrow and Memorial day. Oh and tonight. I'll definitely start tonight. (:

     Do you see the weird change in lighting in the photos? I always feel like my camera makes my eye shadows looks all brown so it looks like I'm wearing the exact same thing every time. BUT IM NOT. The first two pictures are more true to color, sorry you can't see me eye lid in those...

     On my face I'm wearing...
Sephora Green Primer
Revlon Colorstay Foundation in 200 Nude
Laura Mercier Secret Concealer in #2 (under eyes)
Maybelline Mineral Power Concealer in Ivory Light 2-3 (under eyes, my bags are sooo bad)
Revlon Colorstay Pressed Powder in Fair

     On my cheeks I have...
Illamasqua Powder Blush in Excite (it's blended out a lot, and my camera isn't picking it up, it gives a nice peach flush)
stila Illuminating Finish Powder in Gold (highlight)
Benefit Hoola Bronzing Box Powder (contour)

     On my eyes I used...
Urban Decay Primer Potion (this isn't working out for me, it creases)
Revlon Cream Shadows Quad in Not Just Nudes (matte cream color all over lid, medium matte shade in crease, darkest shimmer shade in outer corner)
wet n' wild Silent Treatment Trio (brow bone color on 1/4 upper and lower lid, eye lid shade on rest of upper lid and middle lower lash line, crease color in outer v and outer lower lash liner)
Rock&Republic Eyeshadow in Veil (brow bone)
LORAC Take a Brow Kit in Dark Brown (tightline)
tokidoki Perfetto Liquid Eyeliner in Sabochan (mini winged liner, starting where pupil is)
Benefit badGal Mascara in black

     On my lips, I used my new favorite combo which I discovered today...haha...
MAC In Synch Lipliner (lined and just a touch on the inside)
Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Soft Nude (lightly dabbed on)
stila Lip Glaze in Kitten (center of bottom and upper lips)

     Woohoo. I really liked the lips today. I've been trying to figure out how to get that perfect sheer natural nudey lip that can  be worn without a smokey eye. So basically it doesn't totally wash me out. I like this lip since you can definitely see the pinkiness of my lips peek through. I'm still going to try and find a lipstick that will give me this effect without all the work, since I'm lazy.
     Hope you liked this. (: Thanks for reading. Byebye. ;)

  1. Hi Valerie, The lip combo looks nice. I have the same issue with nude lipsticks washing me out too. Next time I'll try putting some gloss on it to see how it works.
