Cobalt Blue Winged Liner: Makeup Look

I’m baaaack! It has been quite a while since my last post because I have been so busy with school just starting, but I really missed creating makeup looks! So, I decided to come back with something bold and colorful (I even applied false lashes, which is something I really never do with my typical makeup looks). Even though summer is coming to an end, I really wanted to do something vibrant AND, I am trying out a new foundation.

Products Used:

Eyes

  • I primed my lids with the same concealer I used for under my eyes and set it with a translucent powder.
  • I used the light and deeper pink shades from my Wet N Wild “Poster Child” eyeshadow palette in the crease. I used the lighter pink shade as my transition shade and then deepened it up with the deeper pink shade. I applied the same deeper pink shade to my bottom lashline as well. Side note: the Wet N Wild crease brush has been my go-to crease brush recently. It is extremely soft and blends shadows like a dream. Also, it is only $1!
  • I applied the L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadow in the shade Amber Rush all over my lid.
  • For the star of the show- the cobalt blue liner- I used the Wet N Wild liquid liner in the color Voltage Blue. This eyeliner is so pretty and dries down completely matte. It is also very easy to apply and not streaky at all.
  • I applied one coat of my Jordana Best Lash mascara to my top and bottom lashes and then applied a pair of falsies to my top lashes. The ones that I used are from Ardell (I think, they are from the drugstore) in the Andrea style. I typically do not wear false lashes because personally I think they are too dramatic for everyday, but these look so natural and I have been wearing them a lot!

Face

  • I primed my face using the Murad Oil Control Mattifier.
  • The foundation I used is a new one I am trying out- the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer in the shade Cream Whip (I will post a full first impressions/ review of this foundation tomorrow!). I applied it using a Real Techniques sponge.
  • For concealer, I used the Wet N Wild Come Correct celebrity concealer in the shade medium. I applied this under my eyes and on other high points of my face.
  • I set my concealer with the RCMA no color powder and the rest of my face with the Maybelline Better Skin pressed powder.
  • I contoured using the Wet N Wild contour palette in shade Dulce De Leche and bronzed using the Milani Baked Bronzer in shade Soleil.
  • For blush I used the Milani Rose Blush in shade Tea Rose.
  • My highlight is Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop. This highlight goes with L’Oreal Amber Rush beautifully!
  • I set my makeup with the Mario Badescu Rosewater facial spray.

Brows & Lips

  • For brows I used my L’Oreal Brow Stylist Definer is shade Dark Brunette and set them with a clear brow gel from Wet N Wild.
  • For lips, I just applied the NYX Mega Shine lipgloss in Frosted Beige for a metallic glossy look.

 

Colorful Summer Makeup Look (Drugstore)+ Mini Haul Updates

I was feeling inspired from the Wet N Wild “Poster Child” eyeshadow palette and wanted to do something really colorful and bright. This is definitely not an everyday look, but experimenting with bright shadows that I typically would not wear allows me to be a little more creative!

  • I set the rest of my face with the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte foundation powder.
  • I contoured/ bronzed my face with the NYC bronzer in ¬†shade Sunny.
  • For blush, I used the Makeup Revolution matte blush in shade Nude (this is a great shade for ANY makeup look!).

  • Lastly, I set my face with my DIY Mac Fix + spray.

Brows & Lips

Wet N Wild Come Correct concealer- This stuff is FULL COVERAGE but it is great! I have heard that it is a perfect dupe for the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye concealer (but I cannot say because I have never tried the It one). I have the shade Medium (the only shades I saw were Fair and Medium) and it was the perfect shade for my skin tone. The only thing I did not like about this concealer is that it creases really fast so I have to set it right away with powder. A little bit goes a long way for sure- you only need a little dot for both undereyes! Other than that, this product was a hit for me!

NYC Liquid Eyeliner (black)- I knew I was going to like this before I tried it out and I was happy that I was not disappointed! This is the best liquid liner I have tried (drugstore and high end!). This one dries completely matte and it is less than $3! If you do not have this already, you need it.

Wet N Wild “Poster Child” palette- I did not get to trying the other palette but I will get to it! For both the palettes, the shadows are really buttery, soft, and surprisingly pigmented. Plus, these palettes were less than $5 each! For the “Poster Child” palette specifically, the shadows were not patchy and blended beautifully. The only downside is that they are very powdery and have a lot of kick-off, but they blend like a dream so the powdery-ness does not really bother me at all. This is a great palette! I will do another look with the other neutral palette soon!

Wet N Wild MegaLast lipstick in Don’t Blink Pink- I already love these lipsticks and this one was no exception. The color is a bright Barbie pink and very pigmented. The formula is on the dry side, but the formula applies evenly and is not patchy at all. Love these lipsticks and they last forever on the lips!

Elf Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal- I thought this was going to be really chunky, glittery, and hard to blend but it was actually not hard to work with at all. A little bit of this goes a LONG way. I just dabbed it onto my cheekbones with my finger and kind of blended it out. Then I went in with a small stipple brush to further blend it out and it was a beautiful highlight. I applied this overtop of my powder and did not have a problem blending it. This was only a $1, so I definitely think this is a great highlight!

So overall everything I bought was a hit for me and I would definitely recommend any of these products! Hopefully this post was helpful and y’all enjoyed it!
