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!

Re: What are you wearing today?

I have used my UD Naked foundation about 4 times now and am not sure what to think of it (got it during chic week).  

 

@beautytester, does yours ever make your skin look flakey?  The skin around my lips looks bad after application (even after exfoliating & adequate moisturizer) with the same moisturizer and using MAC Mineralize, I dont get the dried flakes like I do with UD Naked. 

 

Also, the UD Naked does not last all day. My Revlon Naked lasts hours longer and has a tiny bit more coverage. 

 

What are your thoughts/experience with this foundation? Thanks!

Re: What are you wearing today?

I don't have much experience with foundations, and i don't apply it on dry areas. It does emphasize dry skin if I pile it on for more coverage, but if you are just treating it as light/med coverage (1-2 thin layers) and apply it on oil areas like the redness on the chin/nose, I like it fine.

Re: What are you wearing today?

thanks for the info beautytester Smiley Happy  I only do 2 layers. I'm sad because I was excited to get it (no parabens or fragrance).

Re: What are you wearing today?

Re: What are you wearing today?

oh and I bronzed my neck & chest with NYC Sunny bronzer (the white peach tinted moisturizer is a tad too dark for me so I have to darken up my neck & chest to make it look decent).

Re: What are you wearing today?

Your skin looks so pretty and glowy! I need to try that TM lol!

Re: What are you wearing today?

thanks @kd006!  I do like the 100% Pure tinted moisturizer, but I had a hard time matching my color (they don't do samples but have a great return policy). I am UD Naked 2.0 / Mac NC20 and the white peach is a little dark on me (i just bronze up my neck & chest when I wear it) or I use 1/2 pump with a lighter foundation.

 

I have been kind of hatin' on my ELF blush in peachy keen but gave it a try over this TM and it worked GREAT!  When I put it over foundation, it seems to have zero color and sinks into my face.  With the TM it has good color and you can see some shimmer too (a little golden).

Re: What are you wearing today?

I need to try it! But now I wonder if it will be too dark for me because I'm an NC15 in mac and it was even a little dark on you. Maybe when I do my self tanning in the summer this would work for me. Do you have combo skin, dry, or oily?

 

I found elf blushes broke me out. I have heard the same from many people saying there is a lot of talc in their blushes, so I can't really use their face powders.

2. too faced shadow insurance

3. clarins eye shadow palette, so chic 50

Re: What are you wearing today?

I'm loving the cat eye and pink lips look! Love the touch of color on the bottom lashline. =)

Re: What are you wearing today?

Gorgeous look rawrxjasmine!! Love the purple liner under your eyes, and the colors you chose for your lips and cheeks look radiant!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Very pretty.  How is The Balm lid primer?

Re: What are you wearing today?

I personally find it better performing than UD's primer potion! It ties with my favorites, Too Faced Glitter Glue & Benefit Stay Don't Stray. No creases, long lasting.

Re: What are you wearing today?

I got it as a deluxe sample in my Birchbox, and It's the only eye primer I have used so far. I really like it and wear it everyday! I am probably going to try some other things after I go through my sample.

Re: What are you wearing today?

 

Kind of a long list today - I spent a lot of time on my makeup this morning. Smiley Happy

 

1. L'Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Anti-Redness Primer: Didn't seem to eliminate redness. Will still be trying Smashbox's Color Correcting Primer next time I'm at Sephora.


2. Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Foundation Shade 2.0: Best foundation I've used so far, though it only offers medium coverage and it doesn't cover all of the redness I need it to.


3. Garnier Nutitioniste Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Roller: Only used once so far, but seems like a good product. Covered under eye circles pretty well.


4. Smashbox High Definition Concealer Shade Fair/Light: Good concealer. Little goes a long way.


5. Rimmel London Natural Bronzer Shade 27 Sundance: Don't care for this bronzer. Eager to try Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer next time I'm at Sephora.


6. Nars Blush Shade Orgasm: Good color, but the application can be a little tricky, even with a good brush. Will be searching for a new blush next time I'm at Sephora.

 

7. Benefit Watt's Up Illuminator: Nice product, great color.


8. e.l.f. Eyelid Primer: Amazing for only being $1. Comparable quality to Urban Decay's Primer Potions.


9. Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette:

a) Virgin on the brow bone

b) Hustle in the crease

c) Sin on the inner lid

d) Toasted on the middle lid

e) Darkhorse on the outside V and outer crease

f) Half Baked on tear duct and lower lash line

 

10. Maybelline Line Stiletto Eyeliner in Black: Used for my upper lash line. Nice liquid liner. Fine point, fairly easy to control and good pigmentation.


11. Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Zero: Used for my waterline. Amazing eyeliner, my HG pencil liner.


12. Revlon Colorstay Lipliner in Natural: Very rough on the lips, will not buy another liner in this brand. Prefer Prestige's lipliners much more.


13. Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Fruitti: I adore Revlon's Lip Butters, and Tutti Fruitti is a great shade. It's sheer and buildable, so if you're new to trying orange (like I was), then you can start small.


14. Revlon Lipgloss in Firecracker: Smooth and creamy lipgloss. Orange tinted, though mostly sheer. Gorgeous color, lasts a long time.

 

Like I said, busy day for my makeup! But boy do I love how I look today! Smiley Wink

Re: What are you wearing today?

Totally forgot about my brows!

 

15. Smashbox Brow Tech to Go in Brunette: Amazing and easy to use. I've never owned brow makeup before, but this is a great introduction to the area!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Naked 1 (applied at 7 am, touched up at home in between our Holiday Party events...I absolutely love this palette for natural smokey eyes, love layering the colors) with Anastasia Eye Lights Matte as primer/ brow highlight...Marc Jacobs Brow Gel...Urban Decay 24/7 Liner (I don't remember which color, might have been limited edition anyways) with a little Stila Stay All Day Liner on Top. YSL Bronzer, MUFE Blush (bubblegum pink shade, don't remember the #). Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in New Lover (there's a little YSL Lipstick still on my lips under this). Peter CC in Medium/ Tan (not like you could tell that from the washed out light).

 

Later at our Merchandising Fair the Hourglass Ambient Light Powder and Hourglass Bronzing Duo and Hourglass Icon would get added to this...will post a pic later if I have one, the woman who did the lip/ complexion touch up for me was awesome, did not look heavy and the lip pretty much lasted all night (faded a little over the hours, but still left color). Loved!

 

Happy Holidays!

Re: What are you wearing today?

I *love* your coat! Is it vintage? It's beautiful! (ETA: Your makeup looks gorgeous, too, of course; I just got distracted by the coat.)

Re: What are you wearing today?

It's not, but thank you for the compliment on the coat and makeup! The faux fur part is removable too, the coat has been great for the "cold" weather recently in SF.

Re: What are you wearing today?

It really has been cold lately! My family (on the east coast) doesn't sympathize with my idea of "freezing" in SF, but I swear the buildings aren't as well insulated as they are in colder climates. I could be wrong, but I'm always chilly here!
