Sometimes I have a few new products to try that don’t mandate a full-on tutorial but instead just a quick peek at how they look + my thoughts on them.
I often do “first impression” periscopes and snapchats (k8_smallthings), but I thought I’d do a quick “face of the day” post for you here!
I’ve returned to my holy grail face products as I wait for my skin to clear up. So that means Fresh Lotus Youth Preserver with Super 7 Complex face cream in the morning, and Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation in Soft Blush. Those are the two products (other than cleansers and exfoliators) that will touch my face every day.
I also purchased a few things at Sephora while I was gone, so I used some of the new items in this makeup look.
Products used: Arbonne Liquid Perfecting Foundation in Soft Blush, Mac paintpot in Soft Ochre, Hourglass Arch brow pencil in Platinum Blonde, Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer in 001, Maskcara blush in Desert Sunset (also used on lips), Maskcara contour in Ash, Sephora eyeshadow in Panama Weekend and Sephora contour used as crease eyeshadow shade in Tranquil, LOC + Tati eye pencil in Night Owl, Benefit Roller Lash mascara + Cherry Bloom fibers, Clinique Bottom Lash mascara in black
The LOC + Tati eye pencil went on beautifully. I smudged it out a bit to soften the look but it didn’t wipe away. Desert Sunset blush is the prettiest, most natural looking cream blush. It blended in really nicely and didn’t look too bright! It was more sheer than I typically like on my lips, but added a really soft tint of color. The contour shade in Ash is perfect for fair skin! It looked so natural! I used just a tiny bit because I didn’t want to overdo it, and I loved the result.
I liked the two Sephora shades I used on my eyes. I was actually on periscope as I did my eyes and someone compared the shades to the Naked 2 Basics palette! They are really close to Frisk, the shade I use the most in that palette. They blended nicely and I really loved that contour for an eyeshadow shade.
