Some thoughts:

I am loving the glo-minerals pressed base. I’ve been wearing it nearly every day since I got it at work, and it has held up really well against my oily t-zone. Even on days like today where I was on my feet working in a hot, crowded store, only the smallest amount of oil poked through. It’s not as full coverage as a liquid foundation, but I find that pairing it with my tinted primer has been working really well lately as my skin has been somewhat clear.

I don’t give enough of a damn about my eyebrows to buy expensive brow products, so I have been finding a lot of drugstore brow products that in my opinion work just fine.

I love the pigment of Nudestix, their packaging, how they apply, and how long they last, but they are ever so drying. And of course once my lips start to dry, they start to flake. I still continue to wear them because I love the colour, I just put on a thick layer of lip balm first.

If there was a fire in my apartment, the first few things I would grab as I ran out would be my tortoise, my childhood blanket, my cell phone, and my Natasha Denona Lila Palette.

IMG_2832Eyes:

  • Laura Mercier Eye Basics Primer in Wheat
  • UD Naked Heat Palette in Ounce, Chaser, Sauced, Low Blow, Lumbre (my favourite), He Devil, Scorched, and En Fuego. Basically the entire damn palette.
  • The black lipstick from the ABH Lip Palette for eyeliner. I’ve been avoiding eyeliner for a long time because it takes so long for me and I don’t feel confident doing it. Of course, one side turned out great, the other, not so much! Any eyeliner tactics you’d recommend? I have shaky hands and zero eyeliner confidence.

Face:

  • Maybelline Master Prime by FaceStudio Primer in 300 Blur + Redness Control. This hasn’t really worked for me noticeably well in the past, but I suppose I haven’t used it a whole lot. Trying it out again, because I’m not going anywhere important today and may as well use some of it up!
  • The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation in 2.0N.
  • Giorgio Armani Master Corrector in 1 (pink under eye corrector)
  • IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer in Medium. This is supposed to be full coverage, anti-aging, and waterproof. It’s well-rated on Sephora and sounds promising! I’m going to give it a go for the next few weeks and then perhaps review it. I just know my Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Concealer is not cutting it for me lately, so anything will be a step up I’m sure.
  • ELF Finishing Powder in Light/Medium (the silver compact one)
  • Tarteist Contour Kit for contouring
  • Becca Luminous Blush in Bronzed Copper
  • FENTY Killawatt Highlighter in Moscow Mule

Lips:

  • Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Get It!

Just peachy
