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)


Thanks for stopping by! Check back soon for more looks created from my makeup stash. xoxo
