FOTD: Glowy Skin, Glossy Lips

IMG_3440

 

Hello my bunnies!

I posted this face of the day photo on my Instagram and Facebook and one of my lovely followers wanted me to post the details. I almost never post my day to day makeup photos on my blog but I think I’ll do it more often from now own.

I’ve got super dry skin so I love looking radiant and glowy all the time. With summer going on full blast in Oz Land, I love this bronzed glow look even more and I’ve found the perfect formula to achieve it!

To achieve the glow in this look, I mixed the Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer with my foundation. You can apply the illuminizer on your face before applying the foundation but I prefer mixing them together. You can also pop it on your cheekbones before powdering your face. I used the L’oreal True Match for coverage and the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation for the dewyness. Other foundations I recommend for a luminous finish are: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation and L’oreal Lumi Magique foundation. IMG_3462

 

 

 

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light is my holy grail powder to achieve a ‘glow from within’ finish. It literally gives you a blurring effect and a subtle glow that is not overtly shiny therefore it’s ideal for all over the face use. 

My favorite powder highlighter at the moment is the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter Pressed in Opal. It is soo finely milled. It looks beautiful on the cheek bones, bridge of the nose and on the cupid’s bow. I also think it goes fabulously with the Argan Illuminizer.

Grungy Ox Blood Blown Out Smokey feat. Lime Crime Venus Palette

IMG_3364

 

YUSS I finally have the Lime Crime Venus: The Grunge Palette!!! This palette is the bomb! The colors are right up my alley – I’ve been totally into warm reddish browns, berry tones and oxblood tones and the three standout colors of this palette: Venus, Creation, and Muse fall under those categories. I’d be totally satisfied if this palette contained only these three shadows but ofcourse we’ve got the added bonus of 5 more incredibly beautiful shades.

I just played with the eyeshadows a bit and came up with this grungy blown out concoction. I really like how it turned out and the best part for me is the combo of the lips and the eyes! I used a new lipstick which is part of my Sydney Sephora Haul!! (Keep reading to find out the shade) I might do a separate post on what I got from the launch of Sephora in Sydney.

I know I know my face is cleaved off but I solemnly swear it’s no photoshop gimmick, it’s my hair casting a weird shadow :/

EYES

~After priming my lids, I put MakeupGeek Peach Smoothie all over my lid

~Then with a fluffly brush I applied MakeupGeek Creme Brule on my upper crease as a transition shade

~Then with the same fluffly brush I applied Lime Crime Creation on my crease blending it with the transition shade

~Then I applied Lime Crime Venus on my crease dragging it inwards

~Then with a creamy black pencil ( I used L.A. Girl Gel Liner Pencil in very black) I roughly lined my upper lash line

 

~Then with a pencil brush I started smudging that line

~I took some Lime Crime Icon and Muse on the same pencil brush and went over the smudge bit

~Then with a crease brush I started blending it upward

 

~As I blended it upward, I started adding a little bit of muse to saturate the color even more

~I blended any harsh edges towards the crease with Venus

~Then I took Icon and darkened the outer crease a little bit

~make sure you BLEND!

~I applied Aura to the browbone with a lighthand because IT IS shimmmmerrry!

~Then with a small detailer brush, I applied shell to my tear duct

~With a gel liner, I did a very thin line on my upper lash line to frame my lashes and a teeny weeny wing

~On the lower lash line, I applied the black pencil on my waterline and then I smudged it out with Muse and Icon

~With a fluffly crease brush and Creation, I blended the bottom bit even more

~I applied Mascara and then falsies : SocialEyes Glamourous
