MOTD + A Pushy Pomeranian
I used my new L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte foundation in shade 106, and I already love it. I'll be another blogger to jump on the Infallible wagon - it is as good as everyone says. I applied it at about 9:45am and after 6+ hours of wear, it's still going strong. I'm naturally very oily in the T-zone and normal-to-dry everywhere else. My nose had a bit of shine, which I expected, but it was so much duller than it typically is with other foundations. And the product on the rest of my face not over-drying at all. It just gave a nice, silken finish.
I used Maybelline Fit Me concealer under my eyes to highlight a little. I think it's the best drugstore concealer on the market; it's light and bendable and offers great coverage. I set it with Lyric from the Kat Von D Shade and Light palette. If you do not own that - you need it in your life!
From the same KVD palette, I used the shade Sombre to contour my cheeks and Shadowplay to lightly warm up the rest of my face. I haven't used the really dark color yet, and even when I'm tan, it's probably too dark for me. But it would be great to use on the eyes for a dark brown smoky eye.
Fo blush I tapped on a little Dollhouse, a pretty pale pink color from tarte. I like it because it adds just a little flush of color.
On my eyes I used the Lorac Pro palette. I blended taupe into the crease with a fluffy brush. With a slightly denser brush, I applied Sable directly into the crease to create a soft cut crease. And on the outer corners and the lower lash line I applied Espresso. To keep my lid light, I patted on Cream. Then I applied my winged liner using another Maybelline's gem - the gel liner. This is so much better than any liquid liner I've ever used! I swiped on a couple coats of the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara - again, best drugstore mascara in my opinion!
Originally I had Rum Raisin by Cover Girl on my lips, but I went to Sephora (whoops) and ended up buying Urban Decay Sheer Slowburn lipstick - it's a beautiful orange-red color. I went for the sheer formula because I was too scared to go for the really pigmented one, but this gives a beautiful wash of color with a sheen! I'll do a lip-swatch post of this and the other colors I've bought recently because after my Pomeranian attacked me when I got home, there was none really left in the picture.
