Omg. Let me just start with saying I reapplied this makeup like 3 or 4 times in a row. I wanted to try recording on a different camera to hopefully get some better video quality. I figured I was going to run into hickups along the way. So glad this day is over.
This was my first look look using the ColourPop Uh Huh Honey Palette. I just did somewhat of a predictable look with it. When I’m not really sure what to do, sometimes doing the obvious thing and getting that out of the way helps.
- Alter Ego Eyeshadow Primer
- ColourPop Uh Huh Honey Palette
- Stinger – Transition
- Totally Buggin’ – Crease, inner lower lashline
- Buzz Kill – Outer lid
- Sweet Spot – Inner lid
- Queen B – Outer lower lashline
- Sunburst – Inner corner
- Sydney Grace Snow Queen
- Anastasia Beverly HIlls Dipbrow Pomade in Taupe
- Anastasia Beverly HIlls Lash Brag Mascara
- Covergirl Lash Exact Mascara (lower lashes)
Stinger didn’t blend as readily as I would expect for being so light. It blended fine, just not fast. Queen B was very creamy and easy to pick up plenty of color on the brush. Not very much fallout. The shine on this shade looks like I applied it with a wet brush. I didn’t. Sunburst has a little bit more fallout. It has some larger sparkles in it that fly off of the brush during application. Sweet Spot didn’t swatch as easily as the other shades and required more building up but it applied with a brush just fine. Totally Buggin’ had good color payoff but the way I applied it, it doesn’t stand out against the shades next to it. It’s a borderline orange shade.
I switched out my brow product for this look just to get out of that rut. The brow pomade takes me longer to apply and I don’t get as “clean” of a look with it. I think part of that is that the shade is lighter than what I ususally use. It strangely looks better up close than it does from far away.
- Wander Beauty Nude Illusion Liquid Foundation in Fair
- Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder
Because I reapplied my makeup so many times, my skin got kind of red and I stopped putting so much time into my foundation because I just wanted to figure out my camera problems. So the foundation is somewhat sheer and I didn’t apply all that much of it. I’ll have to use it again and use a different one to test the cheek products better.
I’ve used this one quite a bit in the past but it has been a long time. It has a more emolient and hydrating formula. Needed to repowder several times. Even though it is hydrating, it not my fav for when my skin is dry because it can emphasize texture if I apply too much of it. The coverage and color is what I don’t remember well about it.
- Milani Silky Matte Bronzer in Sun Light
- Milani Baked Powder Blush in Red Vino
The blush was SO pigmented and just very dark on me. Definitely need to use a light hand with this shade.
I want to use the bronzer again over a different foundation. With my skin being irritated it was hard to tell how this would normally look.
- NYX Shout Loud Satin Lipstick in Chic
Seemed to last a decent amount of time. Need to wear again.
