FOTD: Smudged Eyeliner

    Hey ladies (and gents?)!  I wanted to share my FOTD (face of the day) with you today.  I decided to go with some color today, instead of my usual/everyday black or brown eyeliner.  I was also having a really great hair day if I do say so myself. (^.^ );

Below, is an attempt of closeups for the eyes open and closed.  You can totally see my sweet ninja blending skills right? *sarcasm*

What I used today:

Skin79 VIP Gold BB Cream (I doubled up and used a bit of this as concealer on some spots around my face, as well as under the eyes.)

the Balm Mary-Lou Manizer as highlight on the tops of my cheeks, center of the eyelids, brow bone and nose bridge.


Sonia Kashuk Eye Definer in Purple Passion (I purchased mine at Target)
the Balm Mary-Lou Manizer as inner eye corner highlight
Dolly Wink Long Mascara (Volume formula here and here.)


Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain in Honey (I purchased mine at Target)
Before the stain, I used The Body Shops Born Lippy Stick Lip Balm in Lychee (This stuff smells like a real lychee fruit! I love it! It also has a bit of shimmers in it too.  It is also reminiscent of those jelly lychee candies you can buy at Asian markets!)

Brushes Used:
Everday Minerals Long Handled Kabuki (I love this brush it's so soft!)
Everyday Minerals Tapered Sculpting Face brush (for highlighting)

I basically followed the tutorial below from one of my fave Youtubers, Bubzbeauty.  I love her!  She always has amazing tutorials and great tips!  So if you liked my FOTD do check out the tutorial below to see how to do it! (^__^ )b

  My top is from Romy. I purchased the top at the store in my local mall.  The top that I purchased is in the color Cream.  On their website, it appears the top is white or a teal color.  I love this store and I check it often if I am at the mall because they always have killer sales.  I got this top at the store for 40% off and only paid about $16 for it.  (It was originally almost $40, $38 and some change, plus tax).  I am a girl on a budget but I do like cute clothes!  I'm sure a lot of you out there are on small budgets also, so I will be sure to list affordable and cute clothes or accessories if I stumble upon them.  I am always looking for a good deal!

  I know I haven't really updated too much since the holidays, but I hope you all enjoyed this FOTD and I hope to post again soon.  I also decided to add the brushes I used today because I thought that they were worthy of mentioning.  I have had my Everday Mineral brushes for a few years, and I love them so much!  Not only are they soft and get the job done, but they are also super affordable and inexpensive.  Another plus is that they are vegan-friendly and animal cruelty free!  They are also synthetic brushes.  Let me know if I should do a review on the ones that I currently own!  

  I am expecting a small haul from Cherry Culture as I decided to pick up a few things with some extra cash I had from holiday over time at work.  The order has been shipped and I am waiting for it to arrive!  I will be sure to post pictures and reviews to let you know what I think of some of the products!  Check back for my thoughts on a holographic nail polish I picked up by China Glaze, as well as some NYX items. 

Hoping everyone has been having a great week, and I will post again soon!


  1. Very pretty! I think it looks more natural than when you put a 'normal' eyeliner wing on your eyes. It looks great on you.

    Lots of love, RJ.
