What are you wearing today?

What makeup is everyone wearing today?

 

Today I am wearing:

 

1. Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in Champagne

2. Benefit Coralista blush

3. TheBalm Mary-Loumanizer

4. Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm

5. Dior Addict Lipstick in 454

6. Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow in RSVP

 

and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50

 

So c'mon now...confess!

Cakey! Oh no!

 

I've never personally experienced cakeyness with the powders, but I have noticed that on some days I feel them on the face more than others, if you know what I mean? Like, they're fine and fairly lightweight, but I just... feel it sometimes. It's not the foundation, because my foundations feel light on the skin, so I can only attribute it to the powders.

 

What kind of brush do you use to apply? I wait until everything is set, then take a giant fan brush (like the biggest, fluffiest one I have), lightly dip into the powders and spread it onto my face in a thin layer. I sort of treat it like an HD powder, where you really only need a very small amount.

 

Does Diffused Light diminish your redness at all (if you have any)? I know when I was first shopping and ogling the powders, what sold me on Diffused was rubbing it onto the back of my hand and watching my splotchiness disappear.

I do have redness, but I haven't really noticed it disappear with the Diffused at all (which is why I bought it). I use a stippling brush to apply. I guess maybe cakey isn't the exact description I'm looking for, but I guess I was looking for something that would look a bit more "airbrushed"? Does that make sense?

 

It seems you are our resident expert on the HG powders. Any suggestions on which I should try?

Also, did you try taking before and after selfies (before/after powder application)? You can see if it's making a difference on you in photographs better than you can in person, sometimes. 

 

EDITED: Tired of seeing my face on the front page so I'll do a proper BEFORE vs AFTER shot either tomorrow or Friday. Gotta remind myself to do it. Months ago vs. today doesn't really help much, I think!

Re: What are you wearing today?

I never would have thought I'd be the resident HG powder expert, lol! A stippling brush definitely shouldn't be layering too much on. Though you know, I wonder if Dim Light would be a better match for you as an all over powder than Diffused? Many girls who are light but not fair to super fair seem to think Dim does more for them than Diffused. So perhaps you can try using Dim all over and then subtly highlighting with Diffused or Ethereal. I would hate for you to buy it and not enjoy Dim either, though. I wish there was a way for you to get a 'trial' size!

Wouldn't that be lovely if they did have a trial size? I was toying with purchasing the palette, although I'm not sure I'd get much use out of the darkest one. Now that I'm rouge and get free shipping, I can't afford anything to ship! Ha!

 

Thanks for the advice on Dim. Will have to try that out.

LariTheLoud

Re: What are you wearing today?

Sad how that works, isn't it?! I'm close to Rouge, but... I spread out my purchases among Sephora and department stores and MAC....

Getting rouge is a very mixed blessing.

LariTheLoud

Re: What are you wearing today?

So I hear. I'm in no hurry, exactly. :smileywink:

I am extremely new to make up. I only have a couple things and have been playing around and checking youtube. I like seeing what others do for inspiration. 

I used the Sephora CC cream medium

Naked 2 bootycall - lid and pistol - outer corner and crease foxy - blender

Lips - Julep Lady in Red with some Burt's bees gloss over it.  It had kind of faded by the time I took a picture. 

Skipped Mascara today wanted to try a subtle eye and was feeling lazy :smileyvery-happy:

You are so pretty, and this looks incredibly natural. You have beautiful pale blue eyes and a very sweet face. You don't even need mascara to emphasize them!

meagboho

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you!  They can be a bit much, and clump.  Here's a pic where I'm wearing the Diorshow over curl...as you can see I need some practice applying eyeliner :X

 

LariTheLoud

Re: What are you wearing today?

Wow, your lashes are incredibly gorgeous. Don't shy away from mascara! They are so long and nicely curled. They don't look clumpy in this picture at all!

 

And I don't see anything wrong with your eyeliner from here :smileyhappy: Maybe you can try putting some black liner in your waterline next time, too! Do you have a kohl pencil for your waterline?

meagboho

Re: What are you wearing today?

I do not! I got a cheapish sephora pencil (it's kind of a light brown) and I could not get it to stick on my waterline! I got a 24/7 velvet UD pencil yesterday in my Ipsy, would that work? I can't remember what the lady at the Sephora beauty bar used on my waterline, but it seemed to work well. Is there a particular one you recommend? I literally just started wearing make up 2 weeks ago, so I'm pretty green.

kbmatthews

Re: What are you wearing today?

I actually really like the sephora eye pencils! A trick I use to get it to stay longer on the waterline is to gently take a very clean finger and tap it along the waterline to pick up excess moisture... Then put on the liner. Try not to blink or else it'll get moist again. You'll get really quick with practice.

 

i also find that nothing stays out on my waterline for more than 2 hours. And  I've tried a bajillion brands.

LariTheLoud

Re: What are you wearing today?

UD 24/7 pencil works quite well! That's typically what I use on my waterline. Just try not to poke your eye with it. :smileyhappy: I hope you're having fun in the world of makeup! It'll only get more exciting the more you play around!

meagboho

Re: What are you wearing today?

Great tip KB, I will try that next time.  I don't think it helps that the color was kind of a shiny latte color...not super dark.  

I think I'll do the UD pencil when I try the cat eye/winged eye. 

 

I am loving the make up world.  Of course I love to shop so it's just another excuse. My husband thinks I'm nuts, likes the make up I do, but doesn't think I need it all the time, or that I need more. (Of course I need more, I have years of catching up to do!)  I am probably going to go back to the beauty bar and get another session to learn more, it is too fun.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Great look!  I love your brows; they frame those lovely peepers so well.  

meagboho

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you! I actually don't love them (bushy, yet overplucked in Middle School and parts didn't grow back) I'm hoping to get them threaded and try Anastasia's serum to grow some parts back.

Your eyes are stunning! :smileyhappy:
