Happy Thanksgiving & My Makeup Look

Thanksgiving 2015 Makeup Look
Thanksgiving 2015 Makeup Look

Happy Thanksgiving!  For those who celebrate it, I hope you’ve been having a lovely day with your loved ones.  For those who don’t, I hope your Thursday is every bit as lovely (or perhaps Friday, depending on where you may reside!).  I’d like to take this moment to share a few things that I’m thankful for:  the love and support of my family, the loyalty and trust of my readers, and of the beauty community at large for creating a vibrant, knowledgeable, and vast universe for those who are passionate about beauty.

Here is my totally indulgent look for today (meaning:  products I just wanted to wear, not because I needed to test them!) — thanks for visiting as always! :)


I used MAC 242 Brush for the cream eyeshadows, Makeup Geek Small Crease Brush for the crease, and IT Cosmetics #112 Airbrush Precision Shadow Brush for the brow bone highlighter. I started by patting ColourPop Fringe Super Shock Shadow on the very inner fourth of the lid, near the tearduct, and then lighting pulling the sparkle/shimmer upward past the innermost crease area. Next, I applied ColourPop KathleenLights Super Shock Shadow on the middle of the lid, overlapping with Fringe. To get a better gradient between the two shades, I then patted ColourPop Cheap Date Super Shock Shadow between the two, just gently. To add more contrast, I applied ColourPop Drift Super Shock Shadow to the outer third of the lid and lightly buffing just into the crease but not above it. For the crease, I applied ColourPop Central Perk Super Shock Shadow with a small crease brush and buffed it quite a bit above the crease itself. To merge the outer lid and crease shades together, I applied ColourPop Moonshine Super Shock Shadow to the crease. To diffuse the crease color, I applied ColourPop Truth Super Shock Shadow to the brow bone with a fluffy brush. I used Sephora Love Affair Eyeliner on the lower lash line, and then patted ColourPop Fringe Super Shock Shadow over the inner third and ColourPop Dance Party Super Shock Shadow on the outer two-thirds. I used IT Cosmetics Tightline mascara with Dior DiorShow layered on top.


I applied Marc Jacobs Beauty Coconut Primer prior to doing anything else, so that it had time to absorb into the skin. After I finished applying my eye makeup, I applied a mix of Guerlain Parure Gold Foundation in 02 and 03 (about 2/3 and 1/3). I applied Tom Ford Love Lust Blush on cheeks and highlighted with Laura Geller Ballerina Baked Gelato Illuminator. To set and buff everything in (I also toned down the cheek color I had on) with Guerlain Les Voilettes Loose Powder in 03. I used Clarins Fix’ Makeup Spray as a final setting step.


I mixed Tom Ford Malik Lip Color and Tom Ford Derek Lip Color together, and then layered the mixed lipstick hue with Sephora Good Fairy Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gel. I highlighted the cupid’s bow and just below the center of the bottom lip with Laura Mercier 001 Matte Radiance Powder using a fluffy brow brush.

Tarte Tarteist Contour Palette

Tarte Tarteist Contour Palette

Tarte Tarteist Contour Palette ($45.00 for 0.87 oz.) includes two highlighters, a yellow correcting powder (which could be used as a highlighter, depending on your skin tone), two contour powders, and one blush. The quality is disappointing, depending on the shade, but the biggest downside is that it’s one-size-fits-all mentality. Obviously, this will flatter some and not work at all for others. I think the powders are a little on the chalky side, so I don’t know if they would work well on drier skin (I am normal right now, so I didn’t notice it overly much on my skin). The powders also seemed to have a little sweet smell, which was unusual.

Highlight (Tarteist) is a light, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. It is a very subtle highlighter that gets more noticeable as it is buffed and blended into the skin, but it is never emphasizing or even shimmery enough to rise to the level of a moderate highlighter. The texture was smooth and silky without being powdery. It lasted for seven hours on me, but as a heads up, it looks chalky on my skin tone (medium). Chanel Jardin de Camelias (LE, $65.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Paloma Highlight (P) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Light Cocoa (P) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Highlight (P) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Lucid (P) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Dior Cosmopolite (LE, $45.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight (P, $44.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Too Chic (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Laura Mercier Highlight 01 (P, $40.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Correct (Tarteist) is a pale, light-medium yellow with a matte finish. It is designed to correct, though I also think that yellow powders can be used as a “matte highlight” on yellower skin tones as well. The texture is quite powdery, and it was harder to blend out without losing all of the effect. It started to fade after seven hours on me. Dolce and Gabbana Eva (P, $51.00) is more muted (90% similar). NYX Cream (P, $5.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). LORAC Yellow Highlight (P) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Illamasqua Cirrus (P) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Contour Soft (Tarteist) is a light-medium brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a firmer consistency, so it wasn’t as powdery to work with and blended better without sheering out, though it doesn’t build up intensity either. The color wore well for seven hours. Tom Ford Beauty Terra (P, $65.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Bon Voyage (P, $8.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Matte Bronze (LE, $70.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Shadowplay (P) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Skinny Dip (P, $8.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Illamasqua Steal (P) is darker (80% similar). Dolce and Gabbana Desert (P, $51.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Smashbox Bronze (P) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Stila A Whole Lot of Love Gift Set

Stila A Whole Lot of Love Gift Set

Stila A Whole Lot of Love Gift Set ($59.00 for 1.44 oz.) includes four blushes and 20 eyeshadows. It’s a palette with hits and misses, but a lot of the eyeshadows ran on the dusty or powdery side, even if they felt soft or smooth in their respective pans.

Light Pink is a light-medium pink with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff, which was a little dusty, but it blended out decently and lasted for six hours. NYX Flamingo (P, $5.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Nude Pink (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Pixie Pink (P, $6.99) is darker, brighter (90% similar). NARS Mistinguette (LE, $30.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dusty Rose is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a thinner texture that wasn’t dusty or too firm, but it takes a little extra work to blend it out. The color wore well for seven hours on me. Tarte Accentuate (Tarteist) (LE) is lighter, more muted (95% similar). NYX Mauve (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Love (LE, $30.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Overexposed (LE) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Underrated (LE) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Cruel Intentions (LE, $8.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Peach Shimmer is a light-medium, peachy-coral with golden, frosted shimmer. It had good color coverage with a soft, blendable texture that felt a little sparkly to the touch. This one can emphasize pores if you apply it more heavily. On me, the color started to fade after seven and a half hours. Too Faced Who's Your Poppy (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Makeup Geek Romance (P, $9.99) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Orgasm (P, $30.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). NYX Menage a Trois (P, $15.00) is darker (85% similar). Revlon Racy Rose (008) (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Lust (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Becca Lychee/Opal (P, $27.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
