This & That: Giveaway Reminder, Too Faced Sale & What I'm Wearing Today

This is going to be one of those posts that is kind of all over the place. 

First of all, in case anyone missed it, I have a giveaway going on for the Balm's Nude'Tude Palette, one of my absolute favorites - and you still have a couple of days to enter. You can find all of the details here. 

Secondly, Too Faced is having a vintage sale where you can score up to 70% off on some of their classic products, including the Smoky Eye Shadow Collection and their Glamour to Go Kits. I couldn't resist picking up a couple of their Lip of Luxury Lipsticks because they're only $8 each. You don't need a code - just follow the link above.

Thirdly, I'm thinking of starting a series of posts where I feature the makeup that I'm wearing (or wore) that day.  I can't promise that I'll do them all the time, but I thought it might be a good way to let you know what products I'm using regularly and enjoying in case I don't get a chance to review them or forget anything in a monthly favorites post.

Whenever I do a post like this, please, please, please feel free to share what you're wearing in the comments section. I sometimes lack creativity when it comes to shadow combos, so I love reading or seeing the looks that other people come up with.

(When I get a new camera and improve my photography skills, I'll include photos of the makeup but until then you'll have to settle for the products themselves.)

I went for a simple, natural FOTD.

Primer - RoC Brilliance Anti-Aging Face Primer
Foundation - Josie Maran SPF 30 Tinted Moisturizer in Creme with Bare Minerals Ready SPF20 Foundation in Fair on top (I just received the BE pressed foundation yesterday and am testing it out - unfortunately my skin was a little dry today so I didn't want to wear it on its own. Hopefully I'll be able to tomorrow)
Concealer - MAC Select Moisture Cover Concealer in NC15 and BE Well-Rested for Eyes

Primer - Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Eye Base (Awesome!  Have to get a full-size of this)
Shadow - Too Faced Matte Eye Collection - Velveteen Bunny as browbone and inner corner highlight; Tufted Suede on lid; Chinchilla in crease; and Coffee Bean as liner
Mascara - Tarte Lash, Camera, Lashes

Blush - Laura Geller Baked Impressions Blush in Mauve Mocha Latte
Highlighter - Laura Geller Baked Highlighter in French Vanilla

Lipstick - Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Creme Brulee

What makeup did/are you wearing today?


  1. can't wait to see actual makeup look photos. the products you have chosen looks pretty awesome, so it should have been nice look too

    1. I was pretty happy with how the look turned out. And I'm working on the photo thing - trying to choose the right camera (and save up the money to get it!) as we speak. Considering I know next to nothing about photography, I feel like I'm in over my head. :P
