FOTD: "Shimmer, Shimmer, Quarter Turn"


I've never done a Face of the Day before (mostly because I don't exactly pride myself on my makeup application skills), but I thought it'd be fun to post one once in a while. I love seeing other girl's FOTDs and taking inspiration from their photos.

Today, I kept it pretty simple, but with lots of subtle shimmer. I applied my concealer under my eyes and blended it out with my 190 brush. Then, I added my foundation using my fingers. I used the darker shades in the bronzing strips as a little contour and the lighter shades as a slight highlight using my Flawless Face brush. I topped it off by applying blush on the apples of my cheeks. For the eyes, I swept the eye mousse all over my lids, using my finger, added liquid liner on the top and regular eyeliner in my waterline and finished it off with two coats of mascara. For my lips, I wore a shimmery pale peachy pink shade.



*The flash washed the color out, but it's a pretty mauve/brown shade.

Ashley: Not sure where you live, but try Big Lots for the Revlon mousses. They were limited edition. I think the collection was called Star Style or something. The Jane lipstick was only $3 at Walgreens because they're getting rid of all their Jane stuff :)
