Makeup: What I'm Wearing

the beauty milk makeup face of the day
Hello, beauties! Today's makeup or "face of the day" might seem familiar if you saw my Summer Trends article on Popsugar. It's the same look I'm wearing there minus the floral headband. I went for simple matte brown colors on the eyes (MAC Mystery and Charcoal Brown). The focus are  the strong brows and bold lips. I used MAC Mystery eyeshadow for filling in my brows. I usually use a lighter color to fill them in but when I want them to stand out Mystery is my go-to color. 

The lips consist of just lip liner. Specifically the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip Pencil in Coral (what a name!) This thing seriously stays in place for hours. It doesn't even transfer during meals. The drawback is that it's so so dry. And I don't mean that it makes your lips chapped. The pencil is just so dry and stiff that you have to apply mighty pressure to get color payoff. It's a serious struggle to apply. I thought of returning it but I just love the color too much. It looks red in photos but is a bit more orange in person. I also love the retro matte finish so it's a love-hate relationship with this thing.

Have you ever experienced that with a product? Loving how it looks on you but hating all the hassle it requires?

    1. And I just posted a review about a product that I love but that takes waaay too much work- Armani Maestro foundation! The end result is lovely and the formula is so unique, but it takes a lot of effort :)

  7. You look incredible :) The red lip is certainly the main attraction of this look and you pull it off so well! It's a shame that it is a hard product to work with but I can see why chose to keep it.

  13. Agh, I don't like when lip pencils are so hard to apply and gosh forbid you accidentally lick your lips a bit before applying it just slips and slides! The color is gorgeous though so I can see why you put up with it, haha! I love your little fish tail braid :D

  23. You look absolutely gorgeous! I actually have a similar problem with my lipliners; they're just drying. They apply fine, but lipliner alone makes my lips feel so uncomfortable, so I have to add gloss or a balm. If you like the red-orangey nature of this liner, I think you might like MAC's Lady Danger. It's a red-orange lipstick with a matte finish. I don't own it, but I've swatched it instore and it looked stunning :) x

    1. I like NYX, MAC, CoverGirl, and Rimmel lip liners because I don't find them as drying as I did this. I've always wanted Lady Danger :)

  24. wow that colour is gorgeous on you! I love it! I never would think to fill my whole lip with a liner.

  25. You look so beautiful! I am loving orangey-red lips this summer, so I think the color of that liner is incredible! I've never used lip liner before... seems like something I'd reserve only for special occasions, but I definitely want to give it a try!
