Here is a makeup look I have been gravitating to this holiday season! ( please excuse my eyebrow… I didn’t realize I had smudged it LOL) P.S I am not a makeup artist, no desire to be one lol( I just like playing around with cool products 🙂
First, I prepped and primed my skin. I used the Hangover Rx Replenishing Primer all over my face with the exception of my t-zone. For my t– zone ( forehead, nose and chin) I used the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector. I have combination skin that leans more to the oily side so the primer mixing helps to keep my oils controlled.
Hangover Rx Replenishing Primer: $45.00 ( 1.35 fl oz)
Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector: $28.00 ( mini size)
I followed up with the Too Faced Comfort Matte Foundation in the shade Cocoa. This is a medium coverage foundation which is what I prefer these days. Not too heavy on the skin and leaves the skin looking dewy.
Hangover Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation: Normally $48.00 but currently on the Sephora website for $38.50!
Next, I concealed some trouble spots with my Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer in the shade 470. This helped to cover up any blemishes the medium coverage foundation may have missed. This is my favourite concealer at the moment! So creamy, moveable and a little goes a long way.
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer: $35.00
On my eyebrows, I used an Essence eyebrow pencil in the shade brown. Easy to use and to create a soft natural-looking brow. I found this at my local Shoppers Drug Mart.
Essence Eyebrow Pencil: $2.49
On my eyes, I used a combination of two palettes. The Naked Heat Palette by Urban Decay and the Morphe 15d Day Slayer Artistry Palette. I honestly mixed and matched different colours. I don’t remember what I used but I wanted bold rosy colours to offset my red dress.
Naked Heat Palette by Urban Decay: $68.00
Morphe 15d Day Slayer Artistry Palette: This was a limited edition palette but I believe I got it for around $25.00
To line my eyes this day, I used the Sephora Collection Colorful Waterproof Eyeliner in the shade Black lace, which is a matte black liner.
Sephora Collection Colorful Waterproof Eyeliner: $16.00
For mascara, I just used the Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara in the shade Glam Black.
Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara: $6.00 at Walmart.
On my lips, I used the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Lolita and Lined my lips with MAC’s Chestnut lip liner.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick: $26.50
MAC’s Chestnut lip liner: $22.00
Finally, to set my face I used the Too Faced Mattifying Setting Spray. Love how this spray works with this foundation but nothing beats my tried and true MAC Fix+ 🙂
Too Faced Mattifying Setting Spray. $20.00 ( mini size)
