The power of makeup

Besides the fact my foundation is a shade too light what a difference makeup does make.

Current Favorites

This was suppose to be an August Favorites post but it’s way to far into august to now call it that and really they are current favorites not necessarily August alone. 😀

057036 Keihls eye cream. I found this in my stash and brought it back out. A Mary Kay sampler. The blush on me has lasted at least six hours and the eye shadows at least ten if not more. A look done using all the products mentioned. Disclaimer I purchased all these items myself. And my thoughts are always my own.

I don’t care for the new Milani Bella line as eyeshadows but these two colors as highlights are amazing!

Mally Perfect Prep under eye brightener. This stuff really is what she calls a face lift in a bottle. It can be used other places for a gorgeous effect like around the nose and on bridge.
047
Shany Brush I have been using for foundation. It is synthetic and not especially soft but it does a great job at buffing the foundation into your skin.
049
A famous summer staple for contouring. What else can be said? 😀
051
This brow gel is less expensive and just as awesome as my beloved Tarte Eyebrow Mousse. I want to get the blonde color as well.
050
I’ve been mixing these two foundations for a satin perfect color match flawless look.
048
These two lip combo items have been long lost cousins. They compliment each other so well. The lip stick is bare minerals my favorite brand for lipsticks.
052
Close up of the foundation color mixed and how stay put the brow gel is as this is dried and rubbed.
053
I find the Mally eye pencils to be even more creamier then Urban Decay’s and has the same longevity. It glides on and I want every color. lol

The last picture is the swatches of the rest of the products. It also shows the coloring of the foundations alone.

GRWM: Interview time

I had a job interview two weeks ago. I found out yesterday I got it. YEAH!! Here is how I achieved a low key but glowy look. (all items purchased by me to use.. not sure if disclaimer needed or not :D)

The eyes: I can often go overboard (but fun) on my eye makeup. I wanted to go all natural so I used my usual base of Boots No7 Beautifully Matte (to control my oily lids) and Lorac eye primer. I then used my sample from ipsy of the Bareminerals 5 in 1 eye bb cream thing. I love it and I have tried several different cream naked like cream shadows. I then used an elf point brush and applied Naked2 from the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. I used my usual Tarte mousse on my eyebrows. I highlighted with my RMS Highlighter cream, Urban Decay whiskey for my waterline and tightline, and two kinds of mascara. LOreal original voluminous for first layer and Elizabeth Mott for the second layer.

The Face: I went super simple. I primed with Benefit’s Porefessional. Applied It Cosmetics light BB Fluid foundation (LOVE IT) I set it with a sample of Silk Naturals Perfecting powder. No contour but did highlight with the RMS again. I used City Colors Be Matte Blush. I set it with Urban Decay’s All Nighter. I decided to use my new Ipsy Bareminerals lipstick and a lip pencil from Ipsy too by Starlooks. I used the three face brushes below. An Ecotools for the blush, Bareminerals for the powder, and the Shany foundation brush for … well the foundation 😀

I had a decent week. I love the monthly blog hops I am part of and am waiting on my mother’s day gift. I gave into my Mother’s day list and bought the Sonia Kashuk smokey eye brush kit. I am excited to use it.
