I threw together a pretty quick look today since I wanted to run out and do errands. I did a retinol treatment on my skin last night, Alpha Hydrox Retinol ResQ, which I followed up with Oil of Olay’s Regenerist Night Treatment. (I got this as an Xmas Gift last year at work and had forgotten about it and never opened it). My face was a bit red this morning, but not overly so. I used my favorite daytime moisturizer, and then went to work on my makeup. I wanted my focus on my eyes, and I did them a bit differently than I normally do.
I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance Candlelight to give me a light golden glow and prime the eye area. I then quickly applied the Urban Decay Shadow Pencil in Lit to my lid and lower crease. I used MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Dark widely in my crease. The matte caramel beige shade worked really well with Lit and Candlelight in my crease. I highlighted with MAC Blanc Type. Then I lined my upper and lower water line with Urban Decay Perversion.
