What makeup are you wearing right now? (Or were you last wearing?)

I do set the QOTD posts up in advance (usually by a week or two), so this might not make sense when the post goes live, but: Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation, Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder, Laura Mercier Cinnful Lipstick, bareMinerals Nature of Nudes Palette, Sephora Surfer Babe Eyeliner.

It’s been a month and a half that I honestly can’t remember. o_O;

Most likely something simple, though, because I’m sure I had my make-up packed at the time in preparation for travel.

Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, Marc Jacobs Genius Gel in 01 Ivory Light, Hourglass Lighting Powder in Mood Light, Shiseido Translucent Pressed Powder, YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in 1 Luminous Radiance, NYX Blush in Taupe (as contour), Marc Jacobs The Blush in Outspoken, Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel in Brunette and Brow Powder Duo in Ash Brown, Urban Decay Eyeshadows in Mildew, Fireball, and Sellout, UD 24/7 Eyeliner in Perversion and Stash, Stila Forever Your Curl Mascara, Benefit Eye Bright, Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip Plumper in Madrid, MAC Cremesheen Glass in You’ve Got It…

Whew ! That sounds like sooooo much makeup, but I *promise* it’s done with a light hand and this was a nighttime look ! The best part of all is that my favorite makeup product of all time, MAC’s Cremesheen Glass in You’ve Got It, discontinued some time ago, has been brought back !!! I’ve commented about it here several times and had very kind people advising where to find it since it was no longer available, but the Makeup Angels heard my prayers and I can now get it at the MAC counter – Hallelulah !

Face: Kryolan Ultra Foundation, Thin Lizzy concealer, Australis Banana Powder
Eyes: Chichi Glamourous Eyes palette in Timeless (4 of the 12 shades), Zoeva In the Nude liner on lower lashline, Sephora Flirting Game on upper lashline, Milani Power Lash mascara

I went on a site visit to a timber treatment plant and got covered in sawdust, but man, I looked fabulous 😉

I’m currently at work, but, oh well. Full face it is 😉

Face:
– NARS Sheer Glow foundation in Gobi
– NYX Wonderstick in Light
– MUFE ProFusion bronzer in i15
– MAC iridescent powder in Sparkling Rose as a highlight (love!)
– MAC Mineralize blush in Please Yourself

Eyes:

-UD anti-age eye primer
– MAC eye shadows in Malt and Naked Lunch
– MAC eyeliners in Prunella and Grey Utility (in the tight line)
– MAC Matchmaster concealer in 1 (dark circles be gone!)

Brows:

– MAC brow set in Beguille

Lips:

MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencil in Ruby

Gosh, it does not feel that much when I do my makeup :)))))

I wear a no-makeup look, so I’m wearing NARS Radiant TM, Catrice Prime and Fine loose powder, MAC Painterly paintpot, KIKO eyebrow pencil, an Astor bronzer (can’t remember the name) and an old but gorgeous and natural Rimmel blush. My lipstick (a Clinique one) has fade by now so I have bare lips

How do you like the Catrice loose powder? I’m using a Chanel one, but I don’t really want to pay so much next time I need to buy one.

Party last night! I wore L’Oreal Infallible Matte foundation, lots of bronzer, a pink lip and heavy eye make-up. I wore the green(-ish) shade from NARS Egea duo on my eyelid. Matte brown in the crease. Thick winged liner. Falsies.

Face:

Rouge Bunny Rouge Metamorphoses Mattifying Primer
Missha Signature Real Complete BB Cream in No.13 Light Milky Beige
Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten in Porcelain
Makeup Geek Blush in Spellbound

Eyes:
Makeup Geek Foiled Shadow in In The Spotlight all over lid and into crease
Urban Decay Virgin eyeshadow from the Naked Palette on brow bone
Illamasqua Medium Pencil in Sorceress on top and bottom lash line, smudged

Lips:
Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Peach on the Beach

No eye primer, no mascara, no highlighter, no brow pencil…I’ve not got a lot to work with at my parents’ house. I forgot my makeup. ?

Viseart Cashmere palette, Clinique Fig Pop (not my smartest choice ever, it’s a little too peachy for the eye look), KA Starlight in cheeks/ Candlelight on nose/ cuspids bow/ over brows. Decided to line with Stila Moray, one that I never reach for and it’s very pretty! My fave CG Lashblast mascara and I will probably finish off with one of my UD Naked glosses after breakfast. Also just got a box of Illamasqua polishes from Hautelook yesterday so I painted my nails with Jo’Mina and it’s such a fun color!

Base: After frustrating the hell out of myself over the last few weeks with my foundation arsenal (with better lighting in new makeup station super annoyed to find so many of my yellow based foundations turn ruddy orange) . Right now I’m loving a mix of IT cosmetics CC cream in shade Light blended with 1 or 2 drops of GA Maestro glow in shade 4. The GA product is weird (I’m assuming the sunscreen is to blame) and turns the mix darker, then lighter after application which works for me. I’m also reloving NARS tm in Alaska with Tom Ford stick foundation in Fawn layering on areas where I need a bit more cover. La Mer powder (still my holy grail).
Cheeks: Kevyn Aucoin cream blush in Nuella with GA fluid tint #11 layered on top.
Eyes: NYX Milk with MAC 217. Too Faced chocolate bar white chocolate as base, salted caramel on upper crease, semi sweet in deeper crease and lower lash, cherry cordial (my favourite shadow ..wish it had better staying power) in outer vee and lining lower lash. Champagne on lid. Colorpop liners the LE icy purple on waterline and Best O on upper lashes. This combo really packs a punch on my green hazel eyes.
Lips: TF Vladimir with a dab of OCC lip tar in Disintegration blended

Which would be yesterday since I had classes. So, it would be Tarte Gifted Mascara, Milani Luminoso, browbone shade in Vanilla from the smaller Smashbox On the Rocks palette, NYC Sunny Bronzer in the crease, and Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.

Dior BB Crème, It Cosmetics bye bye undereye concealer, Anastastia brow wiz, Viseart Theory Palette in Cashmere, Kat Von D tattoo liner, UD waterline liner, Covergirl Supersize Mascara, Becca Moonstone pressed, theBalm Hot Mama, Hourglass bronzer, and Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche in Sugarcane. Oh and Benefit powder on my nose.

Yesterday was Barberry with old Dior modulation in blue cheek duo, the purpler side. Eyes were Nyx and MUFE lavenders, MJ 20 lilac in the crease, Nyx plum and Ulta raisin pencil for def (thanks again) with plum bad gal masc. different enough from the usual reds, brown reds, taupes that it got comments/compliments. Maybe bec it was shimmery? IDK if there’s m/u today or not or whether I’ll go to day job. Job is flexible, but Mondays off (holiday in mass) screw me up. Maybe I’ll stay home and do drab greens with olive oil (thanks yet again, readers) and barely green mascara, make you mine…..I’d much rather think about m/u than work. BTW, thanks, C, for Make You Mine. It’s always the most pleasant surprise, and makes one realize how much of a boon healthy looking blush can be. I really ought to wear blush all the time, even without makeup. Age needs brightening.

Urban Decay One and Done tinted moisturizer, L’Oreal True Match stick concealer, It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye, Sephora baked powder, Sephora brow pencil in Auburn, Milani brow gel, BeneFit Hoola (as bronzer and in crease of eyes), Clinique Nude Pop blush, ColourPop highlighter in Lunch Money, Colourpop eyeliner in Get Paid, Colourpop eyeshadow in La La and Girly, Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, NYX brow pencil in taupe used as lipliner, Urban Decay Sheer Revolution lipstick in Sheer Liar.

I’m working so the face suits an office environment (i.e. conservative!)
Face: Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless 115, Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder, MAC Melba blush, MAC Pearl Blossom Beauty Powder.
Eyes: Shadows are all MAC: All That Glitters (lid), Soft Brown (transition), Satin Taupe (crease), Phloof (highlight), Essence Liquid Liner in black
Lips: NYX liner in Nectar, MAC Finally Free lipstick

Low-makeup day because I’m moving- NYX HD concealer in CW02, Rimmel Brow This Way Brow Gel in Dark Brown, Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette, Maybelline Master Precise Skinny eyeliner in Brown, L’Oreal Voluminous mascara, L’Oreal Visible Lift Blush in Nude Lift, and Urban Decay Sheer Slowburn.

I haven’t put on my makeup yet (decided to take the day off as I’m fighting a cold/sore throat AND my younger son is slated to arrive home from uni some time this afternoon) but yesterday I wore (it took me a while to remember): MAC Tempting and Fiction eyeshadows, GOSH Metallic Brass liner, the new MUFE concealer, no foundation at all but MAC Captive on my lips and Sweet Sentiment blush.

Revlon Colorstay foundation mixed with Illamasqua Skin Base in White and MAC Face+Body in White. MAC MSF Natural in Light. Clinique Plum Pop blush. UD Undone eyeshadow in my brows.

Stila Stay All Day foundation and concealer, Sephora color corrector (peach tone for dark spots), Cinema Secrets setting powder, Urban Decay Wizard of Oz palette (the Glinda version) and MAC Wedge, Marc Jacobs mascara, Clinique blush.

Yesterday, I wore shadows from the CoverGirl Nudes Trunaked Eye Shadow Palette, Burberry Cashmere Concealer, my current favorite Lancome BB Cream mixed with L’Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation, Pacifica mascara, Becca Snapdragon Luminous Blush, and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder. I don’t know yet what I’m going to wear today!

So I didn’t go to work….did Make You Mine with Catrice Brown Town (sheer nude slightly puce brown that would look different on all people) with lots of eye layers, since Stark et al looked too yellow at first. Added MJ 20 tawny apricot for base, bisque for (pseudo) brow bone, and moss green shimmer for accent, with Ulta olive oil liner. No shimmer, when blended. MUFE dk green masc. Pretty fally, but it’s like early Nov. here. Makeup prevailed over work. Oh, well, there’s always Wednesday.

I’m wearing Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, Too Faced Born This Way foundation, Make Up For Ever full coverage concealer on some blemishes, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer for under eye circles, Tarte blush in Exposed, Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal, Tarte Be Mattenificent eyeshadow palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade, Kat Von D liquid eyeliner and Make Up For Ever mascara.

Nars sheer glow foundation in gobi, hourglass ambient lighting powder in diffused and radiance (as a bronzer), makeupgeek havoc eyeshadow & some transition shades from the tarte tartelette in bloom palette, mark Jacob blacker liquide and pencil eyeliner, benefit roller lash mascara, nyx liquide suede in sandstorm.

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea foundation, UD matte lipstick in 1993…and because I was running behind today, I went with UD Naked on the Run for just about everything else. It’s my go-to no-brainer palette (along with the Tarte round palettes) when I need to look put together but don’t have time to worry about what goes with what or to be as creative as I’d prefer. I used 4 shades of shadow (including the one that can be used as a shadow or a highlight, which I used for both purposes), the bronzer, the blush, the liner that comes with it (Stag), and UD Perversion mascara.

After so many years of trying new foundation every month on the quest for something perfect, I just this week went back to Estee Lauder Double Wear. It’s so amazing, covers well, and the shade range is phenomenal.

Been really loving a base of KVD Bow ‘N’ Arrow liquid lip stick with Haze by NYX on top. I’ve been calling it Mummy Brown. It seems to go really well with everything and isn’t a color I’ve been seeing (yet). For shadows I’ve been enjoying extra dark smoky eyes with just a hint of color (usually teal or gold).

Wauw, from someone that went from no makeup (except for the eyelash gel and a little eye pencil at most) to makeup in a little more then a year’s time, this is an impressive list. Hahahaha.

I’m wearing UD X GS Rocksteady lipstick that I put on yesterday! I put this on at 10 am yesterday, ate a ton, drank a ton, and my lips looked nigh on perfect at 12 am when I went to bed. I’m pretty sure I’ll be rocking this stain all day. I’m beyond impressed.

I got my Vanishing Cabinet subscription from Notoriously Morbid yesterday, so I wanted to use those items today. This month’s collection was “Mother to Dragons.” FACE –Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 100+; Too Faced Primed & Poreless priming powder; Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream in Fair to Light; Wet n Wild Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana (as setting powder); Love from Tarte Tarteist Blush Palette. EYES — Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Notoriously Morbid e/s: Pretentious Namesake from crease to browbone; Stoic used wet on inner 2/3 of lid; Protective Aggressor used wet on outer 1/2 of lid and blended dry into crease and lower lids. Looxi Beauty Aurora Eyeshadow in Limelight on inner corners. Tarte Clay Pot Liner in Black (tightline) and Mint (waterline). Almay Intesne i-Color Volumizing Mascara in Black Plum. LIPS — Starlooks “Stellar” Luxe Longwear Lip Pencil in MLP1; Notoriously Morbid Mystic Matte in Stormborn.

How do you like Reserve your Cabana? I purchased it bc I saw it as a dupe for Mary Lou-Manizer, but have yet to actually use it.
I don’t understand why they call it a bronzer when it’s so light lol
It does smell good though, like the beach/sunscreen 🙂

I love Reserve Your Cabana, but I don’t consider it a dupe for Mary Lou-Manizer (at least not on me). I find Mary Lou to be much more intensely shimmery and golden. I love to highlight with Mary Lou, but I’d never use it over my entire face. I do use Reserve Your Cabana all over my face.

I have very fair skin, so it actually does add a little bit of color and warmth to my skin.

Foundation: Sephora Microsmooth Powder Foundation
Brows: Sephora Retractable Brow Pencil
Liner: Marc Jacobs Highliner in Blacquer
Blush: Rock & Republic Shameless

MAC Studio Fix foundation, Makeup Forever Finishing Powder, Mac Petal Power blush, Dolce & Gabbana lipstick in Soiree, L’oreal eyeliner pencil, Chanel Dimensions de Chanel mascara but I usually use Maybelline, and Giorgio Armani Eye Tint.

Practically nothing today! Didn’t have time for a full makeup look before work, so I kept it simple yet bold with rimmel mascara, Revlon shameless matte colourbalm (a bright purple) and a bit of blush… Didn’t even wear concealer today!

Genevieve, how are you liking that foundation? I’ve been curious about it for awhile, but I’ve been afraid it might creep into all my dents and divots. Are you getting good results with it?

I am personally liking it because it gives medium to full coverage for the day. It has a pump – which is great and you only need one pump to cover your face. It is creamier and perhaps thicker than what I am used to. However one pump of the foundations goes a long way. It does last the day.
I have a few lines around my chin area and I have found that it doesn’t settle into these any more than any other foundation and they all do.
It would be best to try it (if you can go to the shops minus foundation!) on one side of your face to see how it works. Good luck!
