Double whammy with this post!
- A daytime, neutral look featuring the underrated eye shadow Kid.
- Quick look at foundations and eye brows
FACE: BECCA tinted moisturizer (in Tan, I believe), Ben Nye finishing powder in Topaz
EYES: (no base, I was in a rush!) Kid e/s (a beige cashmere, Veluxe finish) all over lid up to the crease, a creamy white eye shadow from a holiday Prescriptives Palette to brighten the inner corners of my eye, highlight- concealer (Bobbi Brown creamy concealer), MAC Penultimate Liner in Rapid Black, L'Oreal Liquid Kohl pencil on waterline. Concealer for under eyes, MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW30. Mascara, L'Oreal Voluminous Full Definition and Rimmel Glam Eyes Lash Flirt
LIPS: MAC Mad Cap lipglass and Majestic lipglass (before it was eaten away! LOL)
BROWS: MAC Cork and Kid eye shadows
CHEEKS: MAC On a Mission Blush
Kid Eye Shadow- This is one of the shadows that looks deceiving in the pan, but on my skintone, it's so natural and perfect. A bit deeper than my coloring and still warm enough for me to wear. I love having this in my neutrals collection. I call it my Hanna Montana shadow. On her show, she's supposed to look completely like a kid, but they use a range of neutrals on her that are unnoticeable to the non makeup wearer, but a beauty junky like me sees it.
I also mix this with my Cork eye shadow for my brows. I dip my #266 brush in the Cork shadow first, then dip it in Kid eye shadow. I always use something else to brighten Cork just a bit for my desired eye brow color. Sometimes I'll use Swiss Chocolate eye shadow if I want a bit more red in my brows.
Here's another picture of me in some of my run- to neutrals. (Hi KidYum!)
In this picture, on my eyes I have NYX's shadow pencil in Milk on my inner corner, Solar Bits (foiled) in Bronzescape on my lid and some Dark Edge shadow on the outer V. I'll def have to redo this look to show you all the drama for real. While this was just a bit of day time drama, a lot of the look is washed out by the bright NC sunshine! I love the Solar Bits foiled!
For my foundation I'm wearing MAC Studio Fix Fluid with the Ben Nye finishing powder. Can you guys see this difference between the BECCA tinted moisturizer in the top pictures and the MAC Studio Fix Fluid in the last picture?
BECCA (50ml/1.7 fl oz pump bottle) -luminous, not a greasy tinted moisturizer
"A combination tinted moisturiser and sheer foundation, Luminous Skin Colour visibly improves the complexion, yet looks incredibly natural on the skin while offering skincare, makeup, and sun protection in one ingenious product. Contains anti-oxidant vitamins, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic ingredients with a broad spectrum SPF 25+. "
-Combines broad spectrum SPF 25+ to protect against over 96% of both UVA and UVB rays

-Contains soothing anti-inflammatory and antiseptic ingredients
-Can be applied with a foundation brush, fingertips, or a brush
Quick look FOUNDATION-I love feeling like one of the BECCA models when wearing this! Does the BECCA look more luminous than the Studio Fix Fluid?
Quick look EYEBROWS- take notice that in the first two pics, my brows are freshly bleached. The last picture they are not. I had been waiting a few weeks to bleach them. Does it make a difference to you?
Hopefully, I'll get some swatches up for you guys showing the difference in consistency! What's your every day summer look?
