Face of the Day: Simple Chic
Thought I'd share today's makeup look with you! It was really easy and I kind of like the look of an "effortless" face with some bold lipstick. It's funny because the whole thing could look very natural with a softer lip color, but when you add a bright lip, the whole look seems a little more "fancy" than it really is. Also- yesterday I realized I had a whole drawer full of sample items... you know the little packets & tubes that might come with Sephora & Ulta orders? Lots of little forgotten things in that drawer. So I've been pulling some things out that I want to try and used a couple of those items in this look.
-YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation in Beige (light/medium coverage... has a nice finish but not drastically better than my drugstore foundations)
-Cover Girl + Olay Concealer Balm in Fair/Light
-YSL Touche Eclat #2 (used as a highlight- yes that's a paper clip holding it shut- there was a lot in the sample! :)
-Bare Minerals Summer Bisque
-MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus
-IT Cosmetcs Vitality Glow Matte Bronzer
-MAC Blushcreme in Posey
-The Balm Put a Lid On It eye primer
-Milani Powder Eyeshadow in Pearl (all over the lid & under the brow)
-Sigma Eyeshadow in Topaz (lightly in the crease)
-Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliner (winged out on upper lashline)
-Mally Volumizing Mascara (upper lashes)
(I didn't put any makeup on the lower lashline)
Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Flamingo Pose
