Okay, I’ll say it. I think we’re obsessed with DC. We adventured out there again to eat, go to the zoo, and take a tour of the White House gardens. It’s probably our new favorite place to be and the biggest highlight is always going out for dinner(We really like to eat.). I like to feel a little more put together, but causal, mostly because I never know what we’re going to get into. I ended up doing a really neutral and rosy night-out look that’s super out of my comfort zone, but I’m crazy about it.
I started off my base with the e.l.f. Blemish Control Primer and used my new favorite foundation cocktail, Nars Sheer Glow and Revlon ColorStay, to even out my skin. I pulled in my bareMinerals BareSkin Concealer to brighten my under eyes and I set it all with the Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot and the NYX Matte Setting Spray. The Lorac Pro Contour Palette was so incredibly convenient to travel with. I used Deep Contour to contour and Medium Contour to bronze myself up a bit. The MAC Blush in Warm Soul is my favorite to add some color to my cheeks as well as a soft golden high light. I even used it on my eyes.
I’ve been seeing a lot of peachy/pink/red matte eye looks on Instagram recently and I’ve been kind of loving them. I decided to dabble into that warmer, pink zone for this night out and I ended up with a look I really loved.
I used the Urban Decay Primer Potion as a base and went in with the shade Rebel from the Tartelette in Bloom Palette on a fluffy brush all over the lids. I used a bit of Leader from the same palette to deepen up the crease and used a bare fluffy brush to blend everything. I dusted a bit of MAC Warm Soul on my inner corners for a little bit of glow.
I curled my lashes and used the L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Waterproof Mascara for some long-lasting curl and definition. For my brows, I used my tried and true Anastasia Brow Wiz in Dark Brown and finished off the entire look with the Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick in Safe Word.
