FOTD: June 6th, 2014

Hello everyone!

I thought I would just do a quick face of the day today. I am excited to review a bunch of products, but I want to use them just a tad bit more so that I can review them properly!

I wanted to look fabulous while I sat in bed and binged watch season two of Orange is the New Black! I won’t give any spoilers, but I feel like I should have waited to read the book until the series was finished… I am too practical for the huge differences between the book and the show! I am just going to have to enjoy the series in all of it’s false-ness. (:

Onto the products!

I did a larger wing with the MUFE liner, then went over it with the Stila pen.

This blush is ridiculous. It's so natural, yet stands out beautifully.

OOTD/FOTD Vegas Edition

Why hello ladies and gentleman!

I had a nice time in Las Vegas over the weekend. If you read my last post then you know that my reason for being in “Sin City” was for an European Car Festival (Wuste).

It was was definitely hot and the wind was crazy, but I had a nice time seeing people that I don’t get to see very often! I also met a bunch of awesome people as well. My boyfriend, Todd, and I always enjoy going to these events together. Our friend also drove down from Sacramento, so it was awesome to see him as well!

Let’s jump to the things that you guys care about!

L1050612

This was my outfit for main day of the festival, Saturday. I wanted my skirt to be tight fitting because of how windy it was!!

  • Blouse: H&M (Gift from the lovely Todd)
  • Belt: Forever 21
  • Skirt: Forever 21
  • Wedges: Urban Outfitters

I wanted to keep it simple, and I actually got a lot of compliments from random people! Yay!

Now, my makeup:

L1050615L1050617

I decided to skip the BB cream so that I could reapply my sunscreen as needed. I learned that matte lip products are not the best things for 20+ mph winds, but I managed! Ok, it was so windy that I thought that my false eyelashes were going to just fly right off of my face! They lasted throughout the day though! It was my first time wearing them in public, and I felt fabulous. I ended up cutting my Callas lashes and only putting them on the outer corner of my eye. They were a lot easier to apply that way (great for beginners like me!).

  • Elta MD facial sunscreen, SPF 40
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12hr Blush, Tipsy
  • Too Faced Snow Bunny
  • Too Faced Primed and Poreless (setting powder)
  • Covergirl Clean Concealer
  • Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance
  • ELF Brow Kit (Mixed with NYX Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean)
  • Callas Lashes (cut)
  • Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner Pencil (tight line)
  • Smashbox Eye Brightening Mascara
  • Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara
  • UD Naked 3 (Limit, Burnout, Nooner, Darkside, Blackheart, & Strange)
  • Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso

I wanted to do big, dramatic wings, but my eyes were so irritated from the hot wind. I decided to keep it simple this weekend!

Quick Eye Makeup- 5/7/14

photo

I really don’t like uploading photos from my phone, but I don’t have my camera with me at school! (Hello from my college’s library!)

This morning, I snagged a few products before I ran off to school. I am happy that the bathrooms in the library are empty in the morning, and the lighting is, surprisingly, quite nice!

My eye makeup today consists of only four products!

photo (1)

 

  • Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe
  • MAC Satin Eyeshadow in Faux
  • Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner (Black)
  • Smashbox Photo Op Eye Brightening Mascara (Black)

 

Directions:

  1. With a CLEAN finger, apply the color tattoo onto your eye as a base.
  2. Blend it out upwards slightly above your eye socket.
  3. Apply Faux all over where you just applied the color tattoo.
  4. Apply a heavier, concentrated layer of Faux in the outer corner.
  5. BLEND your crease!! You do not wan’t a solid line of shadow (The photo doesn’t show how blended it really is in person, I apologize!)
  6. I would add a highlight from where the shadow you just applied ends, to the brow bone. (This will help you blend as well- I didn’t have one with me)
  7. Line your eyes with eyeliner however you please (optional)
  8. Add Faux under your eye lightly. This will make your eyeliner look less harsh if you apply it on your lower eye (as I did).
  9. Curl those lashes with a WARM curler! (I stick it in my waist band on my pants when I start my makeup so that my skin can warm it up!)
  10. Apply mascara. Let dry.
  11. Apply another coat of mascara. (optional, I didn’t today).
  12. I applied my mascara to my brows to fill them in a bit more!

You can use any color cream eyeshadow along with a complimenting powder shadow! Have fun with it!

I really hope that you have a wonderful hump-day!

Review/FOTD: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick-Beso

L1050258

First off, I want to apologize: I am a hot mess, as well as my bedroom!

Todd and I went to a car show yesterday (He won best compact car by the way). It was hot, and I had to keep applying sunscreen. That is why my face may look a bit weird in the photo. You know what I didn’t need to reapply? My lipstick.

L1050268

Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso is my ALL time favorite lipstick. It is the perfect, bright red, and it lasts forever. My photo above is an after photo, over 8 hours after application!!

It is expensive, retailing at $22, but I think it is worth it. The fact that I don’t have to reapply as often as regular lipstick makes up for it.

I make sure not to eat or drink for at least 30 minutes after I apply my lipstick. Liquid lipstick needs time to set! I ate doughnuts and garlic curly fries (unhealthy, I know!), and I drank a lot of water. No budging from my lipstick! The only time I have budging when I eat is if it is something greasy, like pizza.

One of my biggest deciding factors in purchasing this lipstick last year was that it is kiss proof. I always sacrifice wearing lip products because I don’t want to sacrifice giving Todd smooches! It is also a plus that it smells so wonderful.

Some people find this lipstick to be drying, but I don’t really have a problem. It is like any other matte lipstick in that sense! I make sure to exfoliate my lips prior and I wear a heavy layer of balm while I am doing the rest of my makeup. I remover the excess balm before application though. If you wear lipgloss over it, it will transfer.

Blushing Daisy Score:

  • Pigmentation: 5/5
  • Longevity: 5/5
  • Drying: 4/5
  • Price: 4/5

Total Score: 9/10
