Wedding Blues, Happiness nd Makeup!

Hey everyone!

It's been awhile, I know! So sorry! I am kind of lacking in the posts lately nd this one is more of an update on things.

This past weekend was one of my best friend's wedding. She looked so stunning nd it was a beautiful ceremony. I was one of the bridesmaids but I also got to flex my makeup skills. Her wedding was in various shades of blue, so her eyeshadow I wanted a soft but noteable blue. I was so happy it turned out because I had to slightly change my original idea for her [she wanted it slightly darker in the corner] but it still turned out great nd she loved it. Which really made me happy.

Of course, once I get photos I'll post them here. Until then, I'll show a few photos of things I have bought recently.

With the wedding nd everything, I had to get new foundation. My friend nd I are pretty much the same shade of white [not even joking ...] but she doesn't wear a lot of makeup. Gave me an excuse to buy a few items.

Note: no company has asked me to talk about these. Personal opinion!

Fit Me Foundation by Maybelline in #115

This is probably the most different foundation I've ever tried.
It feels really thick nd heavy when I put it on the back of my hand, but then on skin it blends really well nd doesn't feel thick. My only issue is that I need a pump for it. It's a pour bottle nd I tend to pour too much. Hard to get it back in the bottle. But otherwise, great coverage. When I tested it in the store, after testing on my jawline to make sure it was the right colour I put some on my cheeks because I tend to get some rosacea there. Great coverage! Usually I have to pat a bit to make it thicker, but one swipe nd blend a bit. Covered!

If anyone's thinking about getting this, definately go out nd test it!

Benefit Erase Paste in Fair

The lady at the store said this was suppose to lighten nd cover. Lightening, maybe not so much. Definately covers! I had a major breakout on my chin for the wedding nd I don't think I've ever used such a thick concealer. If you haven't either, it takes a bit of getting use to.

"Do You Like What You Sea?" eyeshadow by Benefit

I was looking for a soft, light blue with shimmer nd not glitter for the wedding. This is EXACTLY what I wanted! It's very pigmented - best used with primer underneath - but also extremly velvety. I love the finish. It blends so smoothly. I'm a MAC-a-holic but this is way better finish than what I've used from MAC! I was so impressed.

NYX Lip Stains in "Rock On Ruby" nd "Berry Long Time"

It says 16hrs, but it lasts abt 3-5 hrs. Very matte. Great pigment. "Berry Long Time" is more berry coloured nd "Rock on Ruby" is somewhat bright red. Your lips don't feel dry, even though it is matte. Other colours are beautiful too.

Anyways, I think that's about it. I've really got to do a video soon, it'll be an eyeliner video. Hopefully by the end of the week! Wedding photos soon.

Love nd makeup!
