Colourpop Gotta Agate Look

I haven’t written up a full face of makeup in a while so here goes

Derma-E Ferulic Acid Resurfacing Pads and Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment *
Sunday Riley CEO Afterglow *
Ole Heineken Banana Bright SUN-KISSED Face Primer *
Tatcha The Silk Canvas Filter Finish Protective Primer and The Pearl Eye Treatment in Soft light*
Colourpop : Gotta Agate, Pretty Fresh in Medium 95N, Growth Flirt SSC and Drop of a Hat SSH
REFY Sand cream bronzer
Wet n Wild Incognito concealer in Light Honey
Natasha Denona Invisible HD Face Powder in 01 light medium for my undereye area and
Almay Loose Finishing Powder in 200 light/medium for all over
Essence lash princess Volume and Curl mascara
Brow Gal The Pencil in Medium Brown 04

Something else I haven’t done in a while is post unfiltered pictures (which these are)! I do have a ring light on for lighting which I know can soften features but, I haven’t felt this confident in my skin in a long time!

How have you been feeling these days?

Colourpop Makeup look

Here’s a quick makeup look using mostly Colourpop products.

Some of the products are no longer available so I figured I’d provide swatches in case anyone wanted to recreate the look or use similar colors!

At Forest Sight eyeshadow palette
ALT lippie pencil (as liner)
Best Intention Lippie Stix
Flynn lux liquid lipstick
Tick blush
Main Attraction highlighter

I appreciate that I’m able to use the lippie pencils as eyeliners because I would never use green as a lip color lol.

I love the blushes and highlighters and wish they were still available. I feel like I’ve used these products so much, and the highlighter is on my pan project, but I haven’t hit pan yet and barely made a dent!

I wish Colourpop had a bronzer I could use but I’ve found their bronzer to be too light, too orange or too stiff and hard to blend.

Let me know if you own any of these products!

CP At Forest Site and Morphe Jaclyn Hill Vol II look

Today I really wanted to use the Raw Beauty Kristi Colourpop collab but I also really wanted to use the second Morphe Jaclyn Hill collab. Fortunately, the two compliment each other!

I pulled crease colors from the Jaclyn Hill palette and the lower lash line color.f

From the Colourpop palette, I pulled darker colors to add depth to the look and the lid colors.

I wanted to blend Evergreen into West Coast to the out end but West Coast was too yellow gold for what I wanted to i layered Evergreen on top instead.

Other products used:

  • WetNWild Photofocus foundation dewy in Golden Beige. I usually go for matte but this has the perfect satin finish, not dewy at all!
  • Maybelline age rewind in 120 light. I used to really like this but lately it’s been feeling dry on my skin
  • Marc Jacobs Finish Line powder
  • Doll 10 Popstar Peach. I usually use this under powder but I forgot and figured I’d try it over. I didn’t notice any affect on my foundation but it made for a much brighter blush when I layered a powder over it. This was a Jen Phelps, on YouTube, recommendation and it’s hands down one of the best formulas. In not sure how I feel about the scent though. It’s a nice, yummy vanilla but it feels weird applying it to my face. I haven’t noticed it affecting my skin though
  • WetNWild Mellow Wine blush over to set (can skip two blushes but I don’t)
  • Smashbox Cali Contour palette for bronzer/contour and highlight. I like but don’t love. I want to love this palette so I keep it around
  • Urban Decay Horchata lipstick – the vice lipsticks were reformulated and the new ones are some of the most hydrating matte lipsticks I’ve tried
  • WetNWild Brow Sessive in Medium Brown. This is $1.99 on Target’s website and Amazon. I’ve really been loving this pencil, it’s soft and blends is perfect for my needs – which is just to fill in and brush out
  • Essence lash princess mascara – the purple one

Hope everyone has a happy Thursday

Purple shimmer look

Recently I’ve gotten more into single shadows and depotting my palettes.

I love being able to see so many options to chose from.

Sydney Grace, Coloured Raine, Makeup Geek and Colourpop

Buying singles also gives me the opportunity to try more brands, especially indie brands that only sell single shadows.

This is also a great way to utilize more than one palette and brand.

For than look I used the following shadows:

  • Colourpop – Zested, West Side
  • Makeup Geek – Cocoa Bear, Steampunk
  • Sydney Grace – Golden Wheat, Aim High

To bring out a little more of the lilac I used Colourpop Piggy Bank gel liner.

I’d love to know what others think of using singles!

NYX Ultimate Utopia Vol II

In my previous post I mentioned a friend selected colors for my to use from the NYX Utopia palette and here is a second look from another suggestion

  • I used 1 to set my base, from my crease to my brow.
  • Applied 2 to the crease to deepen it
  • I applied 3 to the outer 1/3 of my lid
  • Applied NYX glitter primer to the rest of my lid and using my finger, applied 4
  • Used 5 in the center, over 4, to tone down the teal a little
  • Applied 6 all across the lower lash
  • Used 7 to darker the lower lash outer edge

I loved the way this look came out. I’ve really been enjoying using color stories suggested by others.

PS I tried the tiktok lip liner trick and…it’s not my thing. Lol!
