Makeup of the Month
Happy Monday! Welcome to a new series where I’m showing off my makeup from the day, week or even month or when I change up my makeup that is. I’ve seen a few posts like this and thought it was a cool way to show makeup favorites in action instead of me just talking about them in my regular monthly favorites post. Also it would be a fun way to document different makeup looks and how my makeup changes over time. Since I’ve been doing a lot more experimenting and practicing really maybe I can catalog my progress and show you along the way to. So in short this is how I’ve been wearing my makeup in August and September.
I’m so happy now that I have a ring light I can do more face of the days and makeup looks and not complain about it not going how I wanted to show it off because the lighting helps out. Also is it weird you can see the lights in my eyes because I find it so freaky. However for my face of the month or months really, I went with a sort of no makeup look lately. I love the suitableness and the light colors. I was going for something trying to transition and try out new colors and a new technique.

I started off with my base so foundation and concealer first. Sometimes I change it up and rearrange the order of how I apply it but right now I am doing base first unless I want to do a dramatic eye look then I have no choice because the amounts of times I mess up. After the base is good and I’m happy with blending I go to eyes. I have been quite obsessed with the MUA Undressed palette. I am using the first and second color on the top row starting from the left and then the third color from the bottom row starting from the left as well. I love this eye look and right now combining the three colors makes a pretty neutral sort of sparkly eye look. I skip eyeliner and go straight to mascara and the Roller Lash is just my holy grail and makes my lashes look amazing and goes great with the eyeshadow. I use the sleek palette for contouring and highlighting I do it really lightly and the BYS trio I use the blush in it and a little of the bronzer color to bring some color back to my face. Then for my brows I need to get them shaped again but I made it work and just filled the in with the Happy Skin pencil side. Last for the lips I have been wearing this lip color and feel like I’ve been cheating and not using any other lipstick. It’s in Cannes and such a pretty color and perfect for right now.
That was my face from August and September. I like the very minimal and its a little but like a no makeup look. I can’t wait to incorporate more berry and autumn colors though and the festive reds and golds towards Christmas time. I’d love to know how you’ve been wearing your makeup recently and how often you change it up. I feel like I need to have a product rearrange myself pretty soon. Also I hope you liked the idea of this as I think it’s a really fun way to practice and try different looks. Hope you have a great week ahead lovelies!
