M O O D Y ☔️ Mauve Lips & Blush

I'm a little nervous with mauve makeup. If you have warm-toned skin, it can have a tendency to make you look washed out. There are some warm mauves out there, but sometimes they lean too pink. But I found a combo that I think mixed warm and cooler mauves to make a moody, soft grunge-y look. B L U S H MAKE UP FOR EVER - Artist Face Color Highlight, Sculpt and Blush Powder
(Shade: S214) Make Up Forever's strength as a brand is how many variety they have. I feel like it's created for the artist who needs a whole blush palette to work with. As such, it ended up being one of the few brands to have a pink-purple-mauvey blush. I love this blush because it's pigmented, but not too much. And it doesn't emphasize skin texture. It just blends in easily, and lasts the whole day. In this picture, I'm wearing no base. Just the blush buffed all over my nose, cheeks, and under eyes. L I P S Beauty Bakerie - Matte Lip Whip
(Shade: Versailles) Versailles is an interesting color because it looks warm or cool depending on the lighting. But it's a beautiful matte purple pink. The product texture is a little bit sticky, but it also lasts longer than the average liquid lipstick. It lasted through my workout session and two meals. If you don't mind the texture, it's definitely great for anyone who wants minimal touchups throughout the day. 😅 Even though I look as moody as a summer’s day here, I have taken this look to an inner city before. It looks very sophisticated, and seems to fit settings with grey streets and tall buildings. (Can't help giving a theme to every makeup look I do!) Have you tried any other products from these brands ?

🌺 drugstore blush for warm-neutral tones ☀️
If you’re wondering whether we have the same skin tone, here’s 3 foundations I’ve more-or-less matched with: L'ORÉAL - True Match Super-Blendable Foundation Makeupin N2/N3 Too Faced - Born This Way Natural Finish Foundationin Vanilla PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Super BB All-In-1 Beauty Balm Cream SPF 30 in Light Aaaaand through trial & error, I’ve learned the best colors for my skin tone are: Peaches Salmon tones Rosy pinks The last of which is the tone of today’s product! L'ORÉAL - Visible Lift Radiance Cheek Duo in Romantic in Rose. Their website says the product is discontinued, but it looks like Walgreens still carries it. And I hope it does, because I really like this product. 🌺 PRODUCT REVIEW 🌺 This is a very pigmented blush and highlighter duo. Both have sparkles in them~ But the blush’s finish is like satin, while the highlighter is somewhere between metallic/ natural. The product is easy to build up for maximum pigment. In my swatches, I just circled my finger on it for a few seconds and THAT was the result. It lasts pretty much all day, though someone with more oily skin may want to blot off excess sheen. It’s definitely not a matte product. Easy to blend, easy to match for any occasion- I keep it in a bag in my car in case I need to stay the night at a friend’s and need a back up makeup kit for the next day. 🌺 HOW I APPLIED IT 🌺 I put the blush on my:  Cheeks Undereyes & in the crease Since peach and pink cancel out blue under eye tones, I applied it there. I was partially inspired by Momoko makeup from Japan, where blush tends to go near the eyes! I brought it up to my eyes and crease, where it was pigmented enough to double as eyeshadow. Which I love to make the look cohesive. Keep in mind that I applied with a heavy hand in these pictures! You can use a lighter hand to look more natural. 🌸 COMPARISON TO COOLER-TONED BLUSH 🌸 Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with using colors outside what anyone recommends for your tone. Actually, sometimes “unnatural” colors are the best for experimental, creative looks. But I put the blush MAKE UP FOR EVER - Artist Face Color Highlight, Sculpt and Blush Powder in S214 to compare because it’s noticeably more cool-toned than the L’Oreal product. Sometimes, I have trouble telling if something is cool or warm toned alone. But when you put them next to each other, you see the difference. I still love this blush for more metallic, goth-ish makeup! But still, it can help you notice the colors that may be trickier to pull off on us like Mauve or Fuschia. What recommendations do you have for finding good blushes?

Some of my favorite lipsticks ☺️
I swatched almost all the colors I own. One of the hardest things for me has been finding lipstick shades I like. I’m very fair skinned with mostly neutral undertones. Maybe leaning a bit cooler at times. So here are the colors: #1 NYX - Butter Gloss in Creme Brûlée. I love this gloss. It is so smooth and not sticky. It smells good and I feel like it hydrated and slightly plumps which is nice. #2 NYX - Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Tea & Cookies. This color is not as flattering on me but the lipstick is nice. Doesn’t last as long as some other lipsticks I’ve used but it’s pretty. #3 stila - Stay All Day Sheer Liquid Lipstick in Patina. It is one of my absolute faves! The color lasts forever and it’s soooo flattering. I’ve seen it on a bunch of different skin tones as well and I think it looks good on everyone. #4 FENTY BEAUTY - Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in Spanked. I like the way it feels. It’s non drying. The color is different than I expected but it still looks good. #5 Beauty Bakerie - Matte Lip Whip in Versailles. This was my biggest disappointment color wise. I was hoping for something more like the Patina shade and it is very brown on me unfortunately. As for the lipstick itself, it lasts by far the longest of the others. I want to try another few colors soon. (I’ve also tried Rosé Posé and it was also much darker than I expected.) #6 & #8 Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick in Crush(6) and Like(8). I also wear jam most days. It’s lovely. It’s very sheer but buildable. I like to use these to achieve a more natural look. #7 smashbox - Be Legendary Cream Lipstick in Fig. I love this dark wine-ish color. It is very hydrating and last awhile

This post will belong to the Q
This post will belong to the Queen of pink himself Jeffree star cosmetics. SWIPE to see lipsticks and highlighters swatches. I love liquid lipsticks. So far to me ,his velour liquid lipsticks are one if the best for long lasting and incredible color payoff. There are so many shades to pick from.On this post, I have the shades: 💄 Rose Matter- to me it is a muted coral pink. 💄Christmas Cookie-very pretty nude color. 💄 Alledgedly-On me, it is a muted peachy orange. 💄 Celebrity Skin- One of the most popular shades. It is similar to Christmas Cookie with less pink tone. Very pretty but I think it is too light for me. 💄 Androgyny- My favorite- it is the right dark pink purpleish tone for the fall and winter. I think it will look good on anyone. 💄 Unicorn Blood-Dark and bold reddish burgundy. Very pretty color if you want to be bold. ✨✨Highlighters- Do you see the size of these things? They are huge!!!! It's not travel friendly. But the amount of product and the big mirror!!! wow. The glow though!! You can see it far away! ✨✨ Shades: Peach Goddess Princess Cut

The Best Non-Drying Liquid Lipsticks 💄
The Best Non-Drying Liquid Lipsticks 💄
I’m a huge liquid lipstick fan, so I’m always on the hunt for a formula which doesn’t dry my lips and turn them into a scaly mess! After much trial and error, I’ve managed to narrow it down to two brands that have great colour pay-off without zapping moisture: Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Lips Matte Liquid Lipstick, and Jeffree Star’s Velour Liquid Lipsticks. Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips come in beautiful rose-gold tubes and epitomise that old-school glamour the brand is famous for. They are a little pricey, but for the formula, it’s worth it! It’s beautifully creamy and glides onto the lips like velvet – the Charlotte Tilbury formula is definitely softer and smoother than that of Jeffree Star. Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips come in ten shades, which is a little limited, but they’re all classics: nudes, browns, reds, and berry tones. My personal favourite has to be Best Actress, which dries down matte into a gorgeous nudey-brown. It doesn’t crack or crease and stays on all day! A little cheaper, the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks have a similar formulation, but definitely not as thick and creamy – the consistency is much thinner, which is why I believe it doesn’t dry your lips: it’s also incredibly buildable and can be layered under gloss or over liner for even more opaque colour. The Velour Liquid Lipsticks come in dozens of shades – from super crazy whites and blues to standard nudes, and they all wear beautifully, with amazing colour pay-off. Personal favourite is the Leo shade – very similar to Charlotte Tilbury’s Best Actress!

I’m not ashamed to admit that half the makeup I own is Jeffree Star Cosmetics. The velour liquid lipsticks are hyperpigmented and last through drinks and dinner while the highlighters are blinding and stun everyone when the light hits it right. I always feel like a walking ad for JSC because my look isn’t complete unless I’m decked out in his products. Anyone looking for a lipstick that lasts and a highlighter that pops, Jeffree Star Cosmetics should be your new go to!

Absolutely in love with these products. I have hooded eyes so getting glitter shadows to stay is so hard but the MORPHE - Hit the Lights Artistry Palette had no issues whatsoever. The shadows are pigmented and blend so effortlessly. The JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS - Velour Liquid Lipstick is a staple in my makeup routine. The sophisticated brown goes with any look and the formula is transfer proof which is a huge deal to me. When it comes to drug store the MILANI - Rose Powder Blush has no competition. This formula is unreal, I adore a buildable blush and the colors they offer work with every skin tone. Huge fan and love the price.
