My Face

I've never been a fan of a lot of face makeup. I think it's weird when it covers my freckles and also I don't really know what I'm doing. Usually I do brows, eyes, and lips (sometimes). I also don't like the red undertones of my skin so I took the plunge and did some research and headed to Ulta. Apparently with freckles you need light coverage and lots of blending. I'm not good at blending my face is what I've realized. That dang bronzer just leaves a weird line.

Here's my before and after photos using Myke's fancy camera.

Here's my before and after photos using my IPhone 5S.

On my face
  • L'Oreal Magic Lumi - Illuminating Face Primer
  • NYX CC Creme Color Correcting
  • Loreal Visible Lift CC Cream Light/Medium
  • Maybelline Instage Age Rewind Eraser Treatment in 120 Creamy Ivory
  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Custom Glow blush and bronzer in Natural Glow
  • NYX HD Finishing Powder in Banana
 On my brows
  • Benefit Instant Eye Brow Pencil in Light
  • Maybelline Brow Drama - Transparent
 On my eyes
  • NYX Eyeshadow Base in Skintone
  • Urban Decay - Oz the Great and Powerful Glinda pallet
    • Colors -  Illusion and South
  • Urban Decay eyeshadow in Sin
  • Bare Mineral - The Escape Pallet - Daydream and Wanderlust
  • L'Oreal Infallibale BlackBuster liquid eyeliner
  • L'Oreal Volume Mascara - Miss Manga in black

I'm really pleased with the overall look of this. Putting the face makeup on didn't really even take any extra time in the morning. As aforementioned, the thing I need to work on is my blending of my "contour" and blush. I can tell the difference more in the selfies than in the pictures Myke took which I thought was interesting, but I guess good lighting and photographer can make all the difference!

What do you guys put on your faces? As you can tell, I like to keep my makeup pretty cheap but would splurge on a good product!

Until Next Time,

  1. Can Myke's fancy camera make me look pretty like you? Also, don't cover up your freckles. I love freckles. They're my favorite. Also, that palette is my favorite. Also, can I play with that bronzer?
