Your Face of the Day! (FOTD)

So.. I thought it was time we had a FOTD thread that we could post pics of our makeup!
It'd be a great way for people to share ideas, learn about different products, and explore new ways to apply makeup!




I'll go first! This is not from today. It's actually a look I did a few nights ago when I was bored
The look was more vibrant IRL. Camera always washes out the color!




Products Used:
Face:
- I forgot what I used (it might be BB Cream or it might be Revlon's PhotoReady Foundation)
- R&R Bedroom Blush
- Benefit Hoola (to contour)
Eyes:
- MAC Electra (lid)
- R&R Adrenaline (crease)
- MAC Carbon (crease)
- MAC Soft Brown & Blanc Type (above crease to blend out)
- Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy (brow & inner corner highlight)
Lips:
- a pink/nude gloss.. forgot what I used





P.S. I know I said I'd do a tutorial on eyeshadow application so long ago! - but I'm not sure what people want to see.. so if you see a look that you like, you can ask for a tutorial on that particular look

Carol, you.are.stunning.

that's all.

edit: i lied, that's not all. your skin is absolutely flawless and i'm quite sure you are just as gorgeous sans make-up. your application is spot-on for your awesome complexion.

aw, Shi, you are too kind! You're making me blush My skin really isn't all that flawless though - it's amazing what a little foundation can do

Great idea, Dana! It would be very helpful if those who post include pics with the eyes closed.

ok so i was bored and decided to "fix up" my makeup so i could post here hahaha
this is pretty much my everyday look, minus the fact that the mascara is a little crazy... i just went over it so it's a little more intense than usual haha:





I'll copy Carol for this part...

Products Used:
Face:
- Everyday Minerals Multitasking Concealer
- no blush because last week when i used some it gave me zits

Eyes:

- Everyday Minerals in Bundled Up (brow highlight colour)
- MAC eyeshadow in Espresso (my GO-TO everyday shade that I can't get enough of). Also used to fill in my eyebrows
- MAC eyeshadow in Carbon (crease)
- Everyday Minerals Luminizing Sunlight Powder in Fawn (inner lid)... it's a face product but i use it on my eyes because i love the colour.. it's like an ivory yellowish colour.
- MAC eyeliner
- Rimmel glam eyes mascara

Lips:

just some yummy peppermint lip gloss that Stacy got me haha

First of all, both of you look great.

Have you seen The Tourist? I saw it the other night and wanted Angelina's eye makeup! Can you/do you do a look like that???
oh, and tips on how to do an easy smokey eye would be so awesome! Despite all my efforts, I cant put any make up on my bottom lid without looking ridiculous...

I love both! I really suck at doing makeup. This all seems like so many steps, so many different products.
How long does it take you?

You are both beauties. Thanks for doing the closed eye lid shot Dana. I love that

Carol -- you are truly a beautiful girl!! I'm SOOO jealous of your skin and cheekbones!!! Your makeup application is flawless!!

Dana -- You have GORGEOUS eyes, I love your make up too! I wish I could apply make up like that, I just end up looking a bit clown-ish!

I agree, there should be a before and an after

^ Oh hell no, no before & after

Erica, it really doesn't take that long once you get a method going. I spend probably 10 mins putting on my makeup like that in the morning.

Thank you everyone!! you guys are all too kind!


Erica - for me it depends on how complicated the eyeshadow part is If I'm bored and I'm just putting on makeup for fun - then I take my time and it'll take me 20-40 min to do everything. If I'm putting on makeup just to be presentable to go outside then probably 5-10 min

ah I know! I totally forgot to take a shot w/ my eyes closed b/c I didn't think I'd put these photos up anywhere. It was just a reference for me just in case I decided I wanted to recreate it. But I'll definitely include a closed eye shot in my future posts now that I'm taking pics for others to see

You look so pretty, Dana!! I love your eyes I'm so jealous. You have the type of eyes that can pull of any look!

I have posted a none makeup pic in that "pics of yourself w/ and w/out makeup thread".. and I think posting that once is enough! I'll probably have to post it again though for tutorials.. be prepared

I haven't seen it but I was planning to watch it so I can try to recreate it then It'll look different though since my eyes are completely different from hers! I was planning to do a very easy smokey eye tutorial one of these days.. since a lot of people think smokey eyes are difficult - but really, it's the easiest type of eye makeup to do!

I'm wearing Ardell Wispies. They're very.. wispy and look really natural. One of my favorites!
