My Face of the Day.

Haven’t posted one of these in ages! This is pretty much my usual makeup look using all products that I use on a regular basis. I don’t wear false lashes often, but I recently ordered some Red Cherry Lashes and I’ve been wearing them almost every day because I love them so much! Strangely, my eyelashes are almost non existent as of lately and I’m not sure why. I think since I’ve begun using Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara, I’ve lost all of my lashes. (This happened to me when I was using Covergirl Lash Perfection too – good mascaras, but for whatever reason, they pull my lashes out) So I’ve been resorting to falsies for the time being and I purchased the Ardell Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator treatment I used in the past to grow my lashes back.

I’ve had a few questions regarding my eyebrows because they are lighter than they were before. I bleach them every three weeks using Sally Hansen Creme Hair Bleach and I’ve switched to a lighter shade in my Make Up Forever Aqua Brow. I really like the way they look now.

Products Used-

Le Metier de Beaute Peau Vierge (tinted luminizer, skin treatment and spf – used as a base)

NARS Oasis Blush (applied to the cheeks)
MAC Superb Extra Dimension Highlighter (applied to the highest points of my cheeks for shine)

Eyebrows

Make Up Forever Aqua Brow #15 (used to fill my brows in)
MAC Girl Boy Brow Set (tinted brow gel)

  1. You look beautiful Natalie. I lost so much of my lashes when I had lash extensions done. The glue practically melted my lashes away. It was terrible. I actually nursed them back with organic almond oil. I was applying it every night before bed with a clean mascara wand (so to cover all the lashes I had left); I would also massage a bit into the lashline; of course making sure I didn't get any in my eyes. Within a matter of a week, I started seeing new lashes come through and the existing ones strengthen. I know products vary from person to person but I thought I'd let you know 😉 xx Sarah

  2. Thank you so much Sarah! Ugh, that's terrible! I've always wanted to try extensions, but I'm scared of that happening.. and I know there is probably loads of upkeep with them. I actually have organic almond oil and I use it all of the time on my body after I get out of the shower. I never thought of putting it on my lashes.. thank you so much for the tip!!

  3. AW!! Thank you so much!! That's such a compliment! I haven't made one, mostly because I don't really do anything special. No special lights – just a white poster board with natural daylight. I always use the manual setting for the most accurate colors, etc.

  4. Thank you Shannon! I have small eyes and my eyebrows are naturally pretty low. So I find that many eyelashes are either too large for me or can look too dark and unnatural on my eyes.. and if they are long, they will touch my eyebrows. Glamour Lashes (the dark wispy ones) look terrible on me. I love the look of long eyelashes, but they have to be the right combination of long, without being too dense and dark. These just seem to fit my eye shape/face so well. They blend in naturally without making my eyes look super dark and fake.

    I switch off between Revlon Precision Lash Adhesive and DUO Dark Tone Adhesive.. I LOVE how easy the Revlon one is to use because it has a brush applicator, and it's also a very sticky/tacky adhesive so you can apply it right away to your skin and it will stick. It stays in place pretty well, but it dries super quick so you really have to work quickly and press it down firmly on your skin. I ultimately prefer DUO though in terms of wear. If I'm going to wear lashes for several hours, I prefer DUO. I know my lashes are going to be super secure.

    I have a tutorial on my tutorial page, but I know it's super old, so I'll do an updated one very soon!

    Thank you so much!

  5. I love the look! Neutral makeup looks are always a go-to for me na d you can never go wrong with it. I love that MAC MSF in Superb too, but I had to put it away because I was using it so much. I need to use other highlighters in my collections that have been neglected. Great post!

    BTW, what camera do you use?

  6. No problems at all, I hope it helps you as much as it helped me. As for the lash extensions, I'm not gonna deny, they really do look great. I didn't even have to wear mascara, you shower and they're there, you wake up still all glammed up 🙂 People were saying to get it done at a pro salon and the consultant was trained etc. I was very careful with all that but it was the glue itself that caused all the damage. And you're right, they never last as long as the 4 weeks they claim and you have to keep going back for refills…which means more glue (and money). I know it's more high end compared to Covergirl but I swear by Lancome's Hypnose Drama mascara. Well worth a try if you're a lash freak like me 🙂 xx
