Your skin tone/coloring: Fair neutral/preference to cool

Favorite look from the week: My skin has been super acne-prone lately, so I’ve been relying on my NARS Soft Matte to help me. I used Luminious Silk 2 to even the base, set it with hourglass. Then I used the ‘smoke’ color from the Pillow Talk quad and ran it through my crease, buffed it out with Soft n Sweet from Berries & Cream from Dominique cosmetics. For the lid I used Naked Lunch from MAC, a newer purchase but it looked so pretty and soft on the lid. I used Marc Jacobs Tantastic on my cheeks, then used the Pillow Talk blush (not the highlighter part) on a smaller brush and went almost right up to my undereyes. MUFE Completely Sepia and CT Very Victoria finished the look. Still looked great after having to wear it while cleaning, too.

Your most used product this week: Still actively panning my Dior Lip Maximizer in Pink. So close!

Any beauty discoveries (new or old): SILK scrunchies, though my coworkers told me it made me look like Deb from Napoleon Dynamite.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones
Favourite look from the week: I just really repeated one of my favourite looks from a couple of weeks ago using my Lorac Pro Metals palette – Gilded on the whole lid, Cobalt on the lower lid and Clover in the crease, with my Art Deco lipstick in Indian Summer.
Your most used product this week: Sunscreen and my staples.
Any beauty discoveries (new or old): None this week – it has just been too, too hot.

Genevieve,
I hope your weather cools down soon. We are under a colder weather alert again! It’s March! Hopefully it equalizes out soon for both of us.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral skin tone, green eyes, salt & pepper hair

Favorite look from the week: EYES: Dior Brow Styler, Dior Backstage Cool Eye Palette (Ombré Sculpting Powder in crease, Shimmer Lilac on lid, Matte Plum in outer V), Sephora 12-Hour Colorful Contour Eyeliner in Black Lace in upper lash line, Lancôme Definicils Mascara, Chanel Stylo Yeux in Charme on outer lower lash line. FACE: Estée Lauder Double Wear Makeup, Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, Laura Mercier Translucent Powder, Chanel Joues Contraste Blush in Pink Explosion, Dior Nude Luminizer in Pink Glow on cheekbones. LIPS: Bite Beauty Virgo Lipstick.

Your most used product this week: Estée Lauder Double Wear Makeup, RCMA No Color Powder, Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, Lancôme Definicils Mascara.

Any beauty discoveries (new or old): Bite Beauty Virgo Lipstick, which I bought months ago and forgot about. I usually reach for Chanel Pirate when I wear red lipstick, but Virgo is super

Your skin tone/coloring:
Fair-light neutral

Favorite look from the week:
A simple neutral eye using a palette I have not in a while, TF Natural Eyes.

Your most used product this week:
Tarte shape tape in fair neutral (12N) and TARTE shape tape foundation in fair-light neutral (16N).

New:
Cover FX Gripping Primer. Yikes, this stuff! I use Tatcha Silk Canvas first on and around my nose and around eyes, generally in the t-zone. The I pat the gripping primer all over that and the rest of my face and really let it settle for 5 minutes or more. Love the results!
Also, more of a “how to” use a discovery. The Hourglass Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick (can I say I hate when the name of a product is longer than the physical size of said product!) is something I’ve loved but struggled with. No matter what anyone says, it moves the makeup underneath when you put it on top–even warming the product, using warm fingers or a damp sponge.
Finally, this week I started putting it under my foundation only on the high points of my cheeks and bending it into my skin with my fingers. I loses so much impact that way, but at least I don’t muck up my foundation, and I can build over top of it with more highlight, which seems to work well for me.
Finally, I struggle keeping my foundation on the sides of my nose even after concealing, setting, etc. So I’ve tried a light coat of the MAC Painterly Paint Pot under foundation. I let it set first and it really helps.
