Such an amazing week and Mother’s Day weekend it was. I spent the day with my two sisters and mom calling other moms and wishing them a Happy Mother’s Day and shopping in Westminster Orange County. For Mother’s Day, I gave my mom some makeup products she wanted which was a mattifying face primer from Proactiv, which works great and I think better than Benefit’s Porefessional primer, and I got her the original Urban Decay primer potion and she loves it.
On Sunday, my two sisters were off in their own little world of crabbiness, my mom and I had a wonderful time going on a makeup spree. There was a sales at Lancome at Macy’s and if you spend over $35, you get a bunch of free stuff and my mom got two eyeshadow singles which were a shimmery coral, pink and a shimmery medium brown. Then the free things were all hers except for the bronzer cream and a travel size makeup remover. The remover works great and I still need to try the bronzer. We also spent a long time at the MAC counter in Macy’s and bought some concealers. I bought a Moisture Cover in NW 25 for $17 and I’ve been using it everyday and it works great for covering redness and enough coverage for dark circles while being light weight. Even though it was Mother’s Day, my mom bought me my favorite perfume Versace Bright Crystal and a new scent from Bath & Body called Wild Berry Tulips which smells delicious.
After our makeup shopping spree, we headed over to Target and I bought a hair volumizer and this one is from Loreal for $6. I’ve tried it and it does give some amount of volume that lasts all day but it does dry out your roots. Also, from today at Wal-Mart, I decided to pick up and try a Wet n’ Wile eyeshadow palette, this one is in Sweet As Candy for $3. It has an off white highlight, a light to medium brown, and a sheer shimmery pink. I swatched the eyeshadows and they are pretty creamy and pigmented. I also picked up a Revlon Grow Luscious Lash mascara for $5 which was used by Sam, a makeup artist from PixiWoo on Youtube. The mascara is said to give lashes volume and length while strengthen them, however, I haven’t tried it yet.
The last thing is a makeup look I did over the weekend of a pinky, coral, and lavender eye along with an outfit of the day. A plain white tank top with a purple floral scarf with jeans ripped jeans and some gladiator sandals with a bun.
Here is what I used.
-Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in NUDE and Smashbox BB Cream in light over it and set with Neutroguena Skin Clearing mineral powder
-Sephora’s bronzer side of the blush and bronzer in Sun Dance
-Milani’s baked blush in Luminoso

-Sephora 5 eyeshadow palette (the shimmery pinky, coral) on the lid then the darker purple below in the outer corner and the lighter purple in the crease
-ULTA single eyeshaodow in PLUM NOIR to darken the outer corner
-NAKED 2 Palette from Urban Decay FOXY and BOOTYCALL for highlight in the brow and inner corner
-MAC Fluidline in BLACKTRACK set with NAKED 2 BLACKOUT

And here is the finished look
