Face Of The Day - Neutral Smokey Eye & Raspberry Lip

Just a typical Monday of running errands, but I had so many new products to test for review, so I figured I'd throw as many on as possible.  


Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Stick Foundation
Revlon Photo Ready Concealer - Light/Medium
Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Spot Eraser - Brightener
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - Creamy Beige
Pixi Beauty Bronzer - Summertime (for contour)
Cover Girl Instant Cheekbones Blush - 230 Refined Rose
Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner - Enchanted
L'Oreal Le Gloss - Raspberry Flush


Maybelline Color Tattoo - Bad To The Bronze
Profusion Twinkle Twinkle Palette - Neutrals
L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes - Black Noir

This is the same type of palette I used for my last FOTD.  This is just the neutral version.  Again, these palettes were only ONE DOLLAR at Walgreens.  I think these shadows give a great look, and no one would ever guess that they were so inexpensive!

Step 1 - I applied the color tattoo on my lid, up to my crease.

Step 2 - I used the 5th color in the palette, the 2nd darkest shade, on my lid, with a flat eyeshadow brush.  I patted the color on.

Step 3 - I applied the 2nd color in the palette, in the crease from the center of the crease to the inner part of the crease.  I used a blending brush for this application.

Step 4 - I applied the 3rd color, the medium shade, in the crease from the center of the crease to the outer corner of the crease.  I used the same blending brush to apply

Step 5 - I applied the first color, the lightest shade, on the brow bone, under my eye brow,  I also applied it to the inner corner, as well.

I did not use any eyeliner for this look.  I lined my bottom lash line with shadow.  I applied the darkest shade of shadow, on the outer third of my lash line.  Next, I applied the medium shade to the center of my lash line.  Lastly, I used the lightest shade on the inner part of my lash line.  I used a smudge brush for this application.  If you look closely, you will see that the colors range from dark, on the outer corner, to light on the inner corner.  Blend the colors where they meet.

I applied 4 coats of mascara to my top lashes.  After two, I let them dry.  I did my eyebrows, and then applied two more coats.  I think I get a fuller look this way.  I applied two coats to the bottom lashes.  I spent the day with my mom, and she said - What lashes do you have on?  I really like them.  She was so surprised to realize I didn't have falsies on!   This is a new mascara for me, that I will review at the end of the month.

If you have any questions, please comment below or message me.  I hope everyone is having a great week!!


  1. Thank you so much! I love this lip gloss! I never had any of these before. My husband found them on clearance at Kroger for only $1.50!! I got the 3 that they had, and went back yesterday to get another! I can't wait to review these at the end of the month. I have found a few great items this month, that I absolutely love!!
