FOTD: All About the Vamp

FirstPic

Hey loves! Today’s FOTD is a dark vampy look. Now I must admit, I only took pictures of the final product. When I sat down to do my makeup I had no idea what I wanted to do and didn’t even have my lights set up. So unfortunately this FOTD will just have a list of products. Next time I will do my best to get some pictures of the process!

FOTD: Drug Store Edition!

Fireball

Hi Loves!!!! First things first….I’ve missed you! I took a week off from work (and blogging lol ) to relax/celebrate my 25th Birthday (#RaiDay was everything!). Of course I did some makeup shopping for my birthday (Thanks Ma, Jas, Antonae and Lamont!) so expect a birthday haul of all the goodies I got later this week, just waiting for a few online purchases to arrive. I also got some umbrella lights (Thank you baby!) so I’m excited to play around with those to improve my pictures! OK now that all of that is out the way, lets get into this FOTD were I used ALL drug store products!

As always the first thing I did was my eyebrows. I used the NYX Micro Brow Pencil for the first time and I loved it! I know in my area (Detroit, MI) they sale NYX products at Ulta, Target, CVS, and also at local beauty supply stores. Next I did foundation and used the Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless….hands down my FAVORITE drug store foundation! If you would like a review on this just let me know! For me this foundation applies best with a round top foundation brush. I like the Real Techniques expect face brush in particular. I do not prime my face with this foundation because I don’t get super oily just slightly dewy, which I like in the summer months.

“No Makeup” Makeup: Powder Foundation Routine

IMG_1293

Hi Loves!!! Today I will show you my “No Makeup” makeup routine. This is my go to look when I’m in a rush. I don’t use foundation, only powder so it’s a pretty quick routine. Let’s get started! FYI: I am traveling for work so I did this look in my hotel room so I apologize for the bad lighting.

Just a quick note, I usually do not prime my face when I’m only using powder. I like how the powder gets “dewy” as the day goes on. By all means use a primer if you see fit! As always I did my brows first. Since I’m traveling I tried to keep the makeup I brought with me to a minimum (It was SO hard!) so I filled my brows in with pencil only and then cleaned them up with concealer. The next step is to conceal any dark spots. I placed the concealer with a Real Techniques brow brush and then blend it out with a damp Beauty Blender. As you can see the Beauty Blender blends out concealer flawlessly. It truly is worth the investment.
