A Very Blended FOTD | ft. Mac, Laura Mercier, Milani & More

So I recently mastered my winged eyeliner with Milani’s Eye Tech liquid liner and, because of this, I have been experimenting a bit more with it. Today, I knew I wanted to create a soft, blended wing and decided that, while I’m at it, I’d try out my own (more subtle) version of ombre lips.

My face products, brows and lashes were pretty typical for me, but I promise I’ll link all of the products used below! I have had some pretty bad hormonal acne recently, but still kept my foundation pretty natural. I could have added more, but I would rather show a few imperfections than have cake face on a hot summer day.blended blended2

For my eyes, I used my favorite, natural lid color, Mac Grain. I then went in with a small angled brush and Espresso from the Lorac MegaPro Palette (but use any deep brown that you like) to create a small wing, then blended it out. On top of that I used my usual Milani liquid liner to create a more defined wing close to the lash line. Finally, I followed it up with a black shadow and blended, blended, blended some more.

My cheeks weren’t supposed to be anything that stood out, but I did use some of my favorite products. My usual bronzer/contour from Too Faced, Blushbaby from Mac on my cheeks (such a wearable blush that goes with everything and I need to wear more often), and my brand new highlighter from Laura Mercier that I’m already obsessed with. Review is coming soon!

As for the lips, they definitely looked more “ombre” in person (my lighting was too bright), but it was definitely not very dramatic. That’s not really my style 🙂 I used one of my favorite lipsticks, Nars Anna, on the outer part and blended it with Mac’s Hue on the inner and middle portion of my lips. I topped the very center of my lips off with a nude lipgloss.lips IMG_3278

And, yes, I’m aware that I touch my hair WAY too much. It’s like a nervous go to pose when I don’t know what to do with my hands.
