Face du Jour: August 6th & 7th

August 6th Makeup:
My last day of summer break, so I chose a moody looking makeup look to match my sadness over my summer ending, haha! I went with a subtle smokey eye and maroon lip.

Face Makeup:
foundation - Almay Line Smoothing Liquid Makeup in Buff
powder - Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 04 Sandstone
blush - Rimmel Blush in Plum

For the eyes, I was just having one of those day where I couldn't be bothered with eyeliner. First, I applied ELF's eyeshadow primer in Nude all over the lid. Then I just grabbed a random palette, pretty sure the name has worn off, sadly. I chose a light, shimmery gray and placed it across the first half of my lid. Next, I chose a darker, matte gray and blended it through the crease. On the outer corner, I applied a soft black shadow and took it underneath the eye as well. Then I just curled my lashes with my trusty Revlon eyelash curler and swept on two coats of the Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara in Ultra Black because I wanted my lashes to really stand out.

To complete the look, I applied the Rimmel Lipstick in 124 Bordeaux lightly so that it 
looked more like a stain.


August 7th:
Oh the beloved first day of school. Today was actually my last 'first day' because I'm a senior now...crazy!

By the way, I took these photos under a more warm toned light this I look like I've 
actually got a bit of a tan. Rare for me! haha (:
