Skin Tone/Coloring: Light neutral skin tone, green eyes, salt & pepper hair

Favorite Look: (This week was all about the lips.) EYES: Diorshow Brow Styler and Clinique Brow Shaper, Marc Jacobs Highliner in Blaquer tightlined into upper lash line, NYX Worth the Hype Mascara. FACE: Estรฉe Lauder Double Wear Makeup, Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, RCMA No Color Powder, NARS Orgasm Blush. LIPS: Dior Addict Lip Glow in Berry as a base coat followed by MAC Flat Out Fabulous Lipstick (see Beauty Discoveries below).

Most Used Products: Everything from the above look, except I used different lipsticks every day.

Beauty Discoveries: MAC’s Retro Matte formula has always been a huge struggle for me, and MAC’s Prep + Prime lip primer makes it even worse somehow. But after a bit of experimentation, I’ve discovered that using a light coat of Dior Addict Lip Glow as a base coat makes the Retro Mattes glide on beautifully and stay on for hours. It’s a perfect combination!

The Pantone Color of the Year for 2019 is going to be Living Coral. I love coral makeup, so I’m very happy. I wish the beauty world had done more with Ultraviolet this year, though.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite look from the week: I liked the e/s look I wore yesterday but honestly cannot recall what it was…I need to go to my bathroom and take a look at what is “at hand” – that will probably tip me off and I’ll post!
Your most used product this week: Estee Edit Prep+Prime+Glow
Any beauty discoveries (new or old): Tarte Partyyy (or whatever the name of it is) – I pulled it out of a drawer yesterday for a more subtle look; not sure I’d wear it again.

Ha – looked in my vanity and realized it was Clinique’s Jenna’s Essentials e/s palette (discontinued now) that I used. Pretty conventional placement – white at brow bone and very inner corner, the taupey beige on my mobile lid, darker brown in crease and almost black smudged as liner.

Skin tone: Very fair with neutral undertones.

Favorite look this week: I honestly haven’t put makeup on at all this week. Between taking care of my brother, getting things done for Christmas and having repairs done at my house, I just haven’t taken the time to wear any makeup.

Most used products of the week: My skin care would be the only thing that qualifies. I added a moisturizer from Tula as my skin was getting a little chapped from cold and wind. I have had a couple of breakouts which I never have normally so not sure if it is the moisturizer or what. I am going to continue it for a week more and see if the breakouts clear up on their own or whether I need to stop using the moisturizer.

Beauty discoveries: Nothing really. I am rather boring this week, LOL!!

Bec probiotics agree w/ my gut, tried a couple of Tula, but havenโ€™t used the moisture (prob the gel one…put it away until spring) systematically yet. I had similar issues, but cannot say if it aggroโ€™d preexisting inflammation, or what. The ingredients list seemed fine to me. (Got lots I need to eliminate.) The eye renewal serum sometimes hurts, s.t. stings, and makes my (sunken) orbital are very red. Slightly better w/o the metal applicator. Take this with a grain of salt, bec between inflammatory processes and colonized/chronic infection, iโ€™m pretty intolerant of most stuff, lol. Except it really isnโ€™t funny anymore. I think Tula will be a no-go.

Skintone/Coloring Light skin, dark green eyes, dark brown hair

Favorite look- ( Today) Becca backstage primer, Lm flawless concealer, Givenchy translucent powder, Honest Beauty( new) glow powder in dusk used as bronzer, Apricot blush from the Becca blush trio( can’t recall name of it)
Nars eye primer in light, Armani holiday quad the iridescent white shade on lid, Joeur skinny eyeliner in charcoal upper lid only lightly smudged. TF fullscreen mascara and KA brunette brow pencil.
Lips were the original Fenty gloss or Chapstick pink nude( new this week too). I also ordered the Fenty FU$$Y gloss but it hasn’t come yet.
Most used products- on a daily basis, the KA brow, the TF mascara, the Nars eye base( even if I don’t wear shadow I have very dark lids), the Givenchy powder, the Sisley touch eclat type highlighter/concealer in shade 1 under eyes, BB pot rouge in Maui.

Your skin tone/coloring: cool/pink undertones, dark brown hair, brown eyes

Favorite look from the week: I just did it tonight, a cat eye using the Vixen Stamp from Vamp Stamp, then Crown on the mobile lid, brow bone and tear duct, and Queen Mother in the crease from the Coloured Raine Queen of Hearts Palette. On my lips Maybelline Undressed Pink. Then just my usual blush and eyebrow products.

Your most used product this week: I didn’t go out much this week, migraines are torturing me.

Any beauty discoveries (new or old): I seriously need to stay away from Sephora. I went to the mall for an event and popped in to Sephora and I was trying to distract myself from my migraine by going through the fragrance area. I fell in love with Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt Perfume. I did not purchase it, I talked myself out of it. I came home and read the reviews. Went there today and fought the insane traffic and lines and used my $25 Rouge coupon not only bought the perfume but the body cream as well. I’ll smell nice at my birthday dinner tonight lol!

Happy Birthday Brenda and I hope your migraines have eased so that you can enjoy your birthday dinner. Beautiful perfumes by the way. I love the Wood Sage one.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favourite look from the week: Using the Dior Bonne Etoile quint, I used the mintish shade on the lid, with the dark teal on the lower lid and the gold shade in the crease. I paired it with Besame’s red/tangerine lipstick. Very pretty.

Your most used product this week: Dior’s Bonne Etoile.

Any beauty discoveries (new or old): How lovely it is to rummage around my small palette bag and come out with something lovely and wearable that complements my colouring and co-ordinates with my summer clothes.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light medium, yellow tones. Dark brown hair & eyes.

Favorite look from the week: Had a work Christmas function, so did a sparkly mauve eye with ABH Buon Fresco, ND Per Se, Juneau & Livid and Stila Glitter and Glow Smouldering Satin, nude blush and bronzer from the Chichi Natural Rose cheek trio and a plummy Rimmel Color Rush lip balm stain that I cannot remember the name of…

Your most used product this week: ABH Dream Glow kit – picked up cheap during a Black Friday sale but I really like it.

Any beauty discoveries (new or old): That I could put Colourpop Skywalking lippie stix on before 8am, work all morning, drink coffee, eat a bacon sandwich for lunch, apply a quick coat of lip balm and redistribute the pigment, work all afternoon, more coffee, then come home and still have colour on my lips. I was so impressed.
