This weekend I had so many items to try out! I have swapped out my standard makeup brushes and have been using the O! Wow Makeup Brush I got from DollhouseImports.com. It is so cool and very different. It has densely packed bristles on a semi flexible brush that helps me blend my foundation into my skin. I have been using this since August now and it has definitely replaced all my older makeup brushes.
Cailyn Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint in Illusionist from DollhouseImports.com as well. Now this has been my new go-to matte lip tint. I rock this all the time and everytime I get so many compliments. I had been looking for a neutral mauve shade and this is it. I am a matte lip color girl all the way and that’s mostly what I wear. Not all matte colors are created equal. Some of them are SUPER drying. With these Cailyn lip colors, they don’t dry out my lips and my lips stay with color.
I also dug into the black|UP Cosmetics Full Coverage Cream Foundation. This foundation was definitely full coverage and I didn’t need to use much at all for my skin. It was very smooth and blended nicely. Best of all, it lasted ALL day!! I will definitely be using this for more evening events. I don’t wear full coverage during the day. This is a great edition for my “events” makeup for sure.
For eyes I used the black|UP Eyeshadow Palette. It was a good range of colors and I wanted to do a slight smokey eye with the matte colors and then I ended up deciding to use the green for a pop of color on the lid.
I’m definitely trying to get better at doing my own makeup. I have been improving lol. Here is my face at the end of the day to show you how long it lasted:
I used a couple of other black|UP Cosmetics as well including the Perfect Matifying Primer (which is the only primer I use these days) & their Sublime Powder as a bronzer.
