Makeup of the Day: Highend Work Makeup

Hello beauties,

Last week I bought to you a drugstore work makeup look, and today it’s all about highend makeup! It’s also a bit of a first impressions as I tried out a lot of new products in this makeup look.

1. IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Illumination- Rich 

For this look I didn’t apply a primer first, however I typically use Benefit Porefessional. To apply the CC Cream I use a damp beauty blender to push the product in. Full review coming at the end of the week.

2. Cover FX Cover Click-N30*

I didn’t expect much from this, but OMG I’m in love with it. I used this as a concealer under my eyes to highlight and cover dark circles. I found the concealer to be surprisingly creamy but still set nicely.

3. Benefit Brow Zing- Medium

4. NARS Bronzer- Casino

5. Hourglass Ambient Blush-Radiant Magenta 

6. MAC Mineralize Skin Finish- Soft and Gentle

7. IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Essentials*

For the eyes, I started off by applying the shade Passion all over the lid. In the crease I applied Intrigue and brought it down to the lash line in a V motion. I also used the remaining product on my lower lash line and smoked it out quite a bit. For some added definition I applied the shade Allure to my top last line using an angled brush. Allure is an interesting shade, it’s a dark matte navy blue however looks almost black on the eyes.

To finish off the eyes I applied the IT Cosmetics Super Hero* mascara, which was surprisingly good. The tip with this mascara is to make sure to apply most of it at the roots of the lashes.

8. Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Créme Lipstick- J Adore 230*

This is a beautiful creamy 90s lipstick.

9. Nudestix Matte Lip and Cheek Pencil- Stiletto

I love the formula of these lip pencils! They are so pigmented, creamy yet still quite matte and long lasting. The shade Stiletto is a gorgeous red with a slight orange under tone.

10. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick- Vampira

I love the formula of these liquid lipsticks, they are so comfortable on the lips. This colour looked a bit patchy in certain lighting, however wasn’t noticeable in real life. I think this lipstick colour would be perfect for winter!
