FOTD 10/18 & Ulta Haul

Hey guys! Today I wanted to show you my makeup for the day, and an impromptu Ulta haul. Funny story: I drove 40 minutes away from home to a specific Halloween store and they didn't have what I wanted.. Of course. They had just built an Ulta in the same plaza and you can't not go to Ulta when it's right there.

So from Ulta I got Urban Decays single eyeshadow in Naked. This is my most used eyeshadow I believe. I'm almost out of it in my Naked palette. I'll have to purchase Buck soon too! Next is the Murad Oil Control Mattifier Lotion. I've heard good things about this, it was expensive. Like, I can't believe I actually paid 40 dollars for a lotion, what the hell was i thinking. If it works I'll be forever greatful. If it doesn't, taking it back! Finally I got the Anastasia Brow Genius Kit in Brunette. This was kind of a whim buy. I had seen a couple people use it in videos and I wanted to try a new brow product. What got me is that it's waterproof. I'm an oily girl so I thought this would be a good product for me. It's kind of a process to apply. But so far I like the results. I plan to do a review and demo of this soon! It's a very different product.

Onto the face.

I wanted to use the Lipslick in Tanzanite I got from Oslo Cosmetics, so I kept the eyes neutral and simple. I started with Buck from the Naked Palette in the crease, then used Tease from the Naked 2 palette on the lid. I highlighted my browbone with NYX White shadow. Then smudged Urban Decays Perversion liner on the lower and upper lashline, setting it with a matte black powder. I added a little Tease under the black on the lower lash line. I used Eyelure 100 lashes.

For the face I used my LOreal Ture Match foundation, Rimmel Stay Matte powder & NYC Sun n' Bronzer. I also used the Brow Genius Kit. And finally the Lipslick in Tanzanite. The color on my lips is from one swipe, so these are greatly pigmented!

I hope you enjoyed this post! Happy Friday everyone! Thanks for reading!
