Face of the Day: Subtle Glamour

Hi everyone!
I wanted to do a quick "Face of the Day" post to give you a closer look at some of the things I talked about today on Beauty Broadcast Live! The webcam quality isn't great when I'm doing that, so hopefully this gives you a better idea of the products and shades that I was trying to describe :) Overall, the look is very simple, but kind of glam in a subtle way. While I used some very full-coverage face products, I kept all of my eye makeup confined to my upper lid. It's a different technique from what I usually do, but I think it really makes the eyes look bigger. Here are the products I used! :) 
  • NYX Invincible Fullest Coverage Foundation in Light Medium
  • It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye (neutral medium) & Hello Light Liquid Brightener duo
  • Bare Minerals Summer Bisque (to set under-eye concealer)
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus
  • Milani Bronzer XL in Fake Tan (for contouring)
  • Tarte Cheek Stain in True Love 
  • Benefit Coralista Blush (to set the cheek stain stick... it has a kind of dewy finish)
  • Laura Geller Baked French Vanilla Highlight (forgot to snap a pic of it!)
  • Bare Minerals Prime Time Eye Primer (not pictured)
  • Stila In the Know matte palette (details on the shades used below)
  • NYX Two Timer Eyeliner in Jet Black (liquid end for winged liner)
  • Rimmel ScandalEyes Eyeliner in Nude in lower waterline
  • Jordana Best Volume Extreme Mascara (upper lashes)
  • Salon Perfect Demi Wispies False Lashes

Eyeshadow how-to...
  • I applied Wind (light cream) all over lid and under my brow
  • I blended Rain (cool grey/brown) in my crease with a fluffy brush
  • I used a small bit of Fire (burnt orange) just above my crease color
  • I blended over the whole crease area with Clay (cool pinky/beige)
  • Since this focus of this look is on the upper lid, I didn't apply any shadows on the lower lashline. With so little done to the lower lashline, it kind of reminds me of Marilyn Monroe's style :) 

I'm experimenting with a new brow palette from Too Faced called Brown Envy. It contains two powders (blonde and brunette), as well as a setting wax and a cream highlight. The kit also contains stencils, tweezers, an angled brush, and a spoolie wand. I like to apply some of the wax first with the angled brush, then I use the blonde shadow for a softer look on the inner parts of my brow, and brunette around my arch/outer part of the brow. I really like how these products help define my brows without making them look too heavy (which is easy to do!) I plan to try this more and eventually do a full review and demonstration for you. 
This is something I found at Ulta- the new (limited edition) Baby Lips "Pinked" collection. This shade is called Rose Rush. It gives a sheer pink glow to my lips- I LOVE the color. The staying power of this one isn't great. I have a couple of other shades from this collection to try and review also. 

Daily Nuggets...
  • I've been swatching TONS of lip products on my hands as I prepare for a new dupe video in the near future! :) I'm trying to find dupes for some of my much-loved shades, and it's not easy.
  • It's windy as can be this afternoon!! Hold on to your hat!
  • I made heated up some 3-cheese tortellini last night. SO GOOD.
  • Here's the Pinterest picture that I was talking about today on BBLive that was cracking me UP last night!! Haven't we all had this feeling?! I remember oversleeping one day when I was working at the station (forgot to set my alarm), and got a call from a co-worker asking where I was. I must have looked exactly like this!! LOL! The face! The hair! I can't take it!!! 

(found on Pinterest, of course)

  4. You always look so beautiful! I want to pick up one of those Tarte Cheek Stains, but don't know which one of the pretty colors to choose from!

  5. Love the eyes. I've been experimenting with eye makep to match [or rather offset] with some nude lipsticks I've neglected of late.
    And it's been quite some time ago that I turned into a baby gorilla because I forgot to set my alarm :D

  6. Absolutely gorgeous Emily, as always =]


  7. Very soft and pretty. I love the lip color- you are gorgeous! xoxo

  9. It is a very pretty look on you. I have been looking at that palette for a very long time, but I have Kat Von D's matte palette and the IT Cosmetic one and I thought that I could get similar look with those.

  10. This is such a great look! I really debated getting this palette last week when it was on sale a Ulta but I just bought Tarte's beMATTEnificent and I've been enjoying playing with it :)

  11. You look great! I would love to see a review on the new NYX foundation. I'm a big fan of the Stay Matte but not Flat liquid foundation (actually, I think I might be the only one who likes it...), so I have high hopes for this one!

  13. You look so gorgeous! I love how you use that orange shade as a transition color! It makes the shade so much more wearable! Those baby lips look great too! I really want to find that collection

  15. Looks beautiful Emily! I hate wearing anything on my lower lash line because everything smudges within an hour on my under-eyes!


  16. This is probably the best look I have seen on you...seriously flawless! Also, that color of shirt looks AMAZING on you. Random I know but I thought I'd tell you that. :)

  20. I really like the lighter take on your makeup today. It looks really nice on you.
    It makes you really look like you're glowing(or is that the pregnancy?) and youthful.
    Also, can you please do a review on the hourglass ambient lighting powder? You mentioned in a face of the day a while ago, and on your channel but we never heard about it again.

  21. Wow you are so stunning Emily, you look like a Miss here !

  22. Emily, you look gorgeous as always.

  23. Lovely look on you Emily! If anyone is interested, I have a review of that Stila palette on my blog!

  33. In some cases it is difficult to present yourself since you know yourself so well that you don't know where to begin with. Give me a chance to give an attempt to perceive what sort of picture you have about me through my self-depiction. I trust that my impression about myself and your impression about me are not all that extraordinary. cash advance 24 hours san diego
