Shopping My Stash | First Edition

So I placed the challenge to shop my stash and avoid purchasing new products this month. Here is my first look! I hope you enjoy!

I taught a lecture this morning along with having a student meeting, so this is a neutral eye look paired with a bolder, fall lip. But the lip isn’t too in your face that it’s overwhelming or inappropriate for the halls of academia.

Face products I used:
Primer: Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer (Sephora sample)
Foundation: L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte in 102 Shell Beige (Medium coverage and shade matches well to my skin tone)
Concealers: Undereye: L’Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter in 862 Pale; Spots/Nose/Chin: ELF HD Lifting Concealer-This stuff is awesome for $3!)
Bronzer/Contour: The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in Medium Matte (Holy Grail-awesomeness!)
Blush/Highlight: Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Exposed on the cheeks from the apple to the ear with Milani Baked Blush in 05 Luminoso as a highlight and touch of color on top of the cheeks
Setting Powder: NYX HD Finishing Powder in Translucent

Eyes (My take on a simple day-time smoky eye):
Primer: Nars Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base (Pricey but worth it)
Palette: Lorac Pro Palette with Light Pink all over the lid, Mauve in the crease, Black in the outer corner and smudged

Upper Lash Line: Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in 001 Black-which I smudged upward a bit
Lower Lash Line: Wet n Wild Kohl Eyeliner in 652 Dark Brown with the Espresso shade from the Pro Palette smudged on the outer part of the lower lash line.
Mascara: Top: Benefit They’re Real; Bottom: Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

Brows & Lips:
Brows: Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe (and yes, the spoolie part broke off while traveling-insert minor panic attack when I wasn’t sure which end broke off!)
Brow Gel: Elizabeth Mott Queen of the Fill tinted brow gel in light-medium (Received in an ipsy bag)
Lips: Too Faced Melted liquified long wear lipstick in Melted Berry (perfect for this time of year)
