So here's the make-up post that I was going to put up yesterday but got pushed back because of the lovely corset I received. (Still so happy about that!) So now, expect a lot of pictures of my face past this point.
I recently got quite a few new make-up items, so I decided to just go ahead and try all of them out together. I'm pretty happy with the results. Here's what I used:
1. Hard Candy's Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer
2. Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfecter BB Cream
3. Maybelline Fit Me! Blush
4. Maybelline Eyeshadow
5. e.l.f. Liquid Eyeliner
6. Covergirl Exact Eyelights Brightening Liner
7. Benefit Watt's Up Highligher
8. Benefit They're Real! Mascara
9. Maybelline Plum-Tastic Lipstick
10. Maybelline Plum-Tastic Lipstick
Out of these ten (wow, there's a lot of make up on my face) products, numbers 2, 5, 7, and 8 were new. 1 is still kind of new, but I've used it before, so we're not going to count it.
Alright! Blank canvas. Just awoken blank canvas, so I'm trying to look awake. I think that resulted in maybe a slightly creepy smile? Meh.
Covering up those pesky dark circles (mostly, anyway). Ugh, how I loathe thee, dark circles.
Now, time to use some of my new BB Cream. This was given to me by my very amazing aunt (Thanks so much! I know you're reading this!).
I've never actually used BB Cream before, but I've heard good things about it, so I was pumped to give this a try.
And boom, there it is on me. (Sorry for the extreme close up!)
I think it has sort of a yellowish undertone? But I think my skin already has a yellowish undertone anyway, so I'm fine with that. I also have very pale skin though. I like it quite a bit, but does it seem light enough for my skin tone? Opinions, I need them! I'm happy that it seems to give my face a bit of color though.
And now with the blush/eye make-up. I actually really like my little sample bottle of They're Real!. I think I might end up going and getting the full size bottle once this runs out.
I like They're Real! a lot more than my old Falsies mascara, I think. And the e.l.f. eyeliner is quite nice too. Only problem I had with it was that I had to keep dipping the brush in the eyeliner, because it doesn't hold much on it.
Also I need to learn how to stop flinching each time cold liquid eyeliner touches my eyelid. Ugh.
And here it all is together. Over all, I'm quite happy with it. (Not very happy with my hair, but that's another issue entirely).
While I don't see much of a need for the Watt's Up highlighter, everything else was pretty fantastic and I'm very happy with the result.
And now for a couple pictures in natural lighting, and not the cold, harsh lighting of my bathroom.
