Makeup: What I’m Wearing
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?
