A Year of Makeup – Day 036

Hey y’all! Welcome back to my next day of my A Year of Makeup challenge!! Feel free to check out my look and let me know what you think!

Products used in order:

  • Starting with the Emité Make Up – Millesis® Active Eye Light (Shade 101), I blend a small dot of product under each eye with my ring fingertip.
  • Apply a small dot of Urban Decay – Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Original) to each eyelid and let dry before applying product
  • With the Stila – Eye Shadow Set (Ventura Blvd):
    • Café Noir: Blend into crease, diluting into transition color and apply on outer corner of the lid by initially pressing color close to lashline and blending up into the crease and out, to create a ‘V’ shape
    • Meadow: Apply to the inner and middle of the lid by starting with pressing product by the lashline and blending up towards the crease, but not into it
    • Goldfish Truffle: softly blend to highlight brow bone
  • Apply about a dime-sized amount of bareMinerals – Prime Time Foundation Primer (Original) with fingers so the warmth from your hands helps blend the product better.
  • Using the sample of Lancôme – Dual Finish Longwear Foundation (130 – Porcelaine) that I got from Sephora, I apply it with the sponge that came with the sample around my face. As you can see, the sample was so small that it didn’t provide much coverage.
  • With the Charlotte Ronson – Luminizer, Blush, Bronzer (Shoshanna):
    • Bronzer:
      • Nose: using the same fluffy eye shadow brush to set under eyes, I use this to lightly contour the sides of my nose
      • Cheeks: using an angled contour/blush brush, I blend this below my cheekbones to create added depth
      • Forehead hairline: Using the same brush as for my cheek contour, I blend this on my upper forehead and into my hairline to give the appearance of a smaller forehead
    • Luminizer:
      • V (cheeks and over outer brow): Using a different angled blush brush, I blend this above my cheekbones and above my eyebrow
      • Nose: using MUD’s 330 brush, I apply this to enhance the contour of my nose for a thinner look
      • Cupid’s bow: using MUD’s 330 brush, I lightly blend this to create a fuller-looking upper lip
      • Inner eye groove: Using MUD’s 330 brush, I apply here to create eyes that look more awake and eye-catching
    • Blush:
      • Using a fluffy blush brush, I apply this along my cheekbones to bring life back into my cheeks
  • Using Zuii Organic – Flora Eyebrow Definer (Coco) I use short, light strokes to fill in and shape my brows
  • Then, I line my upper lashes with Lorac – Front of the Line Pro Liquid Eyeliner (Black) and set it with a black eyeshadow
  • Just a few coats of my current mascara to follow: Doucce – Maxlash Volumizer Mascara (103 – Black)
  • For my lips, I used Dolce&Gabbana – Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick (70 – Impact).

And here’s the final look:
