I’ve recently been interested in morphing my smudgy black eyeliner look into something a tiny bit more polished. As I mentioned last week I was looking for some red lipstick. Find I did, along with some fun new eyeshadow and foundation. The coolest score for me were the makeup brushes I bought. They make me feel more legit in my quest to become a makeup maven. Here are the details:
Photo 1: Every time I walk into Sephora I become sidelined by the beautiful boxes from Too Faced. I finally broke down and bought the “Matte Eye” kit. It did not have brushes so I bought the Sephora shadow 26 brush and angled liner 15 brush. The colors are really great for creating different versions of the smoky eye. The kit is so fun to experiment with, but eyeshadow is really a weekend thing for me. On weekdays I’ve been sticking to my quick swipe of eyeliner.
Photo 2: The perfect red lipstick was found in the Makeup For Ever 44. I already knew I’d love the formula as I have become addicted to their 26 for day wear. It is so creamy and moisturizing and satiny feeling. The 44 is a fairly bright red for me, but it has a touch of brown which gave it a toned down feeling in comparison to the other colors I tried. Love.
Photo 3: On a whim I picked up the Diorskin Nude foundation with SPF 15. This may have been my best find. The Ochre was a perfect match for my skin. No one could tell I was wearing makeup but everyone thought I looked great. It gave a dewy feeling to the skin. I also had been longing for a foundation brush and am in love with the Sephora PRO Airbrush. It is SO soft and really applies the makeup very evenly.
Next on my makeup hit list: liquid liner and burgundy lipstick. Any product suggestions are welcome!
