FOTD | Berry Smoky
I know Summer has just begun for many but here in Hawaii, it’s been hot and these hurricanes and tropical storms keep sweeping in near us. Because of this, I’m truly looking forward to Fall and Winter and I find that I have been really craving that cool Hawaii Winter weather a lot lately. Inspired by Fall shades, I decided I was going to use a Berry Smoky Eye today and since I haven’t been using much makeup lately, I was really excited to play with color. Today – I share with you my FOTD.
Since I don’t use foundation or concealer (I know – I say it over and over again), I went ahead and used the YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer (review here) applying this product all over my face to create a canvas for my other products to last all day. I then started with my brows. Today I pulled out my Paula Dorf 2+1 For Brows Kit (review here) and did these babies up a little darker and bolder than I normally wear them to accommodate for my eye makeup.
For my eyes I wanted to pull out some of my ColourPop shadows that I’ve been neglecting lately. I started with a base – I’m using my Milani Eye Shadow primer. Then I used ColourPop’s Selfie as my transition shade blending into my crease and fading up towards my brow. To create a sultry bold burgundy look, I added a blend of In A Pickle and Cheeky on the inner corner of my eye lid blending towards the middle of my lid. Then taking Drift and blending it from the middle of my lid to the outer corner. To smoke out the look, I took Hustle and added it to the outer corner of my eye then mixed Hustle and Drift together to apply on the lower lash line. To create the pop of color and highlight on the inner corner, I used ColourPop’s XO. To give my browbone a subtle highlight and to diffuse the harsh lines I took Laetus from the Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Contour Palette and swept that under my bone and blending with ColourPop’s Selfie for a flawless transition.
For eye liner I am using the Milani Kohl Kajal liner in black to line my upper and lower rim and smudge along the lower lash line. For my winged liner I am using the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper.
For face products, I used Coastal Scents Forever Blush in Delicate and swept that over ColourPop’s Highlighter in Most Necessary to achieve a slightly bronze glow. For my highlight I am using Lunch Money as a base topped with Becca’s Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector (Jaclyn Hill collaboration). I applied highlight to the top of my cheekbones, along my cupids bow and above the arch of my brows.
For lips I am using Jordana’s EZ Liner in Rock N Rose topped with ColourPop’s Lumiere Lippy Stix. My mascara for today is a combination of Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara and Benefit Roller Lash (top and bottom lashes) and then finished off with a set of Ardell Demi Whispies which are my go-to. To complete the look – I used YSL’s Touche Eclat Blur Perfector to set my makeup (more so my blush/highlighter) in place all day.
It’s been quite a while since I’ve shared a Face of the Day – but I’m looking forward to Fall and sharing more fun with all of you.
