A fast Friday good day
Hiya! In the present day’s submit is a repost of and oldie however goodie. I nonetheless love this look, and LOL, these pants (which I purchased from Goal like 5 years in the past) are nonetheless hanging on! They’re nonetheless my “it’s time to play with Connor exterior” pants. Aspect be aware: Once I see pics of me carrying good make-up exterior to only hang around, I kindasorta wish to get again on that practice. Anywho, have a really joyful Friday, and should you’re someplace scorching like in Northern California, keep cool!
Coloration, Bronze and Plum Make-up
That is what “fancy gown” is for me today: a semi-wrinkled striped sweater, pants with paint spots on them (I wore them to color Connor’s room just a few months in the past, and dagnabbit in the event that they aren’t my most comfy denims I personal!), and my “good” pair of Nike Winflos.
Oh, and a bit of make-up after all!
To chase PGR round the home and the Coywolf across the block yesterday, I wore bronze and plum on my eyes and cheeks with a sheer coral lip. And I paired it with what I wish to name “a semi-sheer base,” which is all-over barely-there protection with a tinted moisturizer, in addition to just a few focused areas with barely extra opaque protection. I did this by mixing a sheer layer of stick basis on my cheeks and round my mouth, after which buffing a tiny quantity of liquid concealer beneath my eyes.
I didn’t set it with a powder as a result of I needed my pores and skin to look as skin-like as doable, however you completely may… Simply be sure you not go too heavy with it if you wish to keep the skin-like impact.
I actually like any such focused protection, particularly the way it seems to be in out of doors mild, which could be notoriously unforgiving. Extremely really helpful. Attempt it in your subsequent picnic.
Unearthed MAC gems
In different information…I’m weeding my method by way of my make-up assortment proper now, and I maintain unearthing previous gems. I wore two of my current finds yesterday — Cheeky Bronze Mineralize Skinfinish and MAC Liquidlast Liner in Coco Bar.
Cheeky Bronze is a delicate, shimmery golden coral face powder. Technically, it’s a highlighter, however you can too use it throughout your cheeks as an all-in-one bronzer/blush/highlighter, which is what I’ve on my cheeks in these pics.
Should you’re feeling artistic, you can too use it as an eyeshadow. I moist a MAC 217 brush, flicked it throughout the pan just a few instances to load it up, then buffed it onto the internal a part of my lids to go together with the bronzed plum shadow I used to be carrying on the outer half (MAC Sable, in case you’re curious).
Coco Bar is a darkish impartial brown MAC Liquidlast liner, and it won’t transfer for nothing! It’s like a liquid model of MAC Coffee pencil liner, which is why I find it irresistible. I drew a line straight alongside my higher and decrease lash strains, then smudged the sting with a flat eyeshadow brush. Should you’re searching for a delicate, subtle chocolate liner that stays put, you gotta give it a go, ASAP.
