Shimmery nude eye and coral lips. Le swoon.

I’ve never really liked bright lips and usually opt for nude colors. I’ve noticed a lot of women with my complexion wearing coral/orange lipstick and loved how well it looked against their skin.

This is my first Revlon lipstick and definitely not my last. I’ve been using their chubby sticks, but this lipstick lasts longer on my lips and is extremely pigmented. I lick my lips constantly, so kudos to Revlon being able to create a product that can withstand the wrath of my spit.

I’m also super in love with this Benefit concealer sample. I used my Sephora discount to get the set that came with POREfessional and this product because I was intrigued by the layer of balm that surrounds the concealer.

I’ve used quite a few under eye concealers, but holy crap, I have found my favorite. It just glides. It’s nourishing. I want to have its babies. It lasted all day, and part of that is in thanks to POREfessional. I don’t know why I ever had my doubts about you, Benefit. I think it’s the packaging. I usually like the professional black or gold packaging as opposed to cute graphics. I don’t care now because Benefit has won my heart. And my money.

What did you get with the Sephora discount?

Today’s makeup: Gradient

I’ve noticed a lot of beauty bloggers wearing turquoise on their lower waterline so I wanted to try that look for myself using a gradient effect. I have several colorful eyeliners that I don’t use enough, so I put them on my face today.

Hey.

I achieved the look by lining one half of my lower waterline with a navy liner, and then used a tapered angled brush to apply the turquoise shadow to the other half, overlapping the colors near the middle so that the colors fade into each other. It’s super easy.

I finished the look with a dusty rose lip and a healthy amount of highlight on my face. Today’s makeup was a bit of a struggle because I washed my brushes today (the worst) so I had to use last resort brushes. I applied bronzer with a fan brush. Enough said.

Have a great Sunday and thank you for reading.
