the look – keep in mind here that the photo was taken with flash

In the interest of bettering myself (and particularly my tendency to be excessively wordy), I thought I’d try to do a Face of the Day without going on and on and on and on (you get the idea) about the products and all. Where I live (in Canada) has been going through unusually sweltering (and unbearable IMO) weather lately which sort of changes the kind of makeup I wear so I thought I’d write a bit about it. This stayed put really well in the mid to high-thirties weather we’ve been experiencing. Also, I should mention that the flash is making my face look awfully dewy when it wasn’t actually. I am aware that this picture is not particularly flattering but this photo showed the makeup the most accurately.

Face:

Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet Plus in 40

Make Up For Ever 5 Concealer Cream Palette in 1 – on chin and underneath the eyes

Benefit Girl Meets Pearl highlighter on cheekbones

Rimmel Natural Bronzer in 021 Sun Glow to add definition and colour

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Natural Beauty on cheeks

MAC Studio Careblend pressed powder in Light on the t-zone

Eyes:

Benefit Stay Don’t Stray primer

MAC Woodwinked eye shadow all over the lid

MAC Charcoal Brown eye shadow to fill in my brows, in the crease, and to add definition to the bottom lashline

a touch of Urban Decay Half-Baked eye shadow in the center of the lids – most likely not necessary…

MAC Dazzlelight eye shadow as an inner-corner and browbone highlight

Urban Decay Darkhorse eye shadow in the outer-v to add definition and smudged into the lashes

Maybelline Master Drama Precise felt-tip liner to create a subtle winged eye

L’Oreal voluminous mascara

Lips:

EOS lip balm

MAC Sail la Vie lipstick on the lips straight out of the bullet- this colour is limited-edition from last summer and is not available anymore but Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin is similar and MAC Neon Orange is slightly brighter and more orange.

Enjoy!
