Post Peel WITH Makeup

Day 3 after my Modified Jessner chemical peel.

My skin was a little dry, but I hydrated with my skin care regimen (previous blog post).

For face I used: IT Cosmetics CC Cream in Medium (as a primer), Glo Minerals Satin II foundation in Natural, Nyx Cosmetics Wonder Stick, Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, and Nyx Cosmetics Mosaic Powder Blush in Love Coral.

For Eyes I used: Glo Minerals Lash Thickener and Conditioner, and Glo Minerals Volumizing Mascara. Eye liner is Glo Minerals Liquid Ink in Black. The eye shadow is new (found at T.J. Maxx for $3.99!!) by Style Essentials called Natural Eye Shadow Palette.

The lips are by Sally Girl Hydrating Lip Gloss #388460.

New Nyx Cosmetics

Because I have very fair skin, naturally, I tend to have a difficult time finding a good contour kit that doesn’t make my skin look “dirty”. I tried these new products this morning and am happy with the results! I hadn’t tried a contour stick before, so I had fun with this. I thought it was going to give me a more dramatic contour, but it actually was pretty light!

I went over the hollows of my cheeks with a powder contour (Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit) to be more defined and blended everything with my blender ball. After doing my brows, I highlighted the brow bone to increase the definition and add a more precise arch with the Wonder Pencil.

For myself, I tend to like a softer look for my makeup and accentuate my favorite features while trying to camouflage any imperfections. I usually have pretty dark circles under my eyes (sometimes more than others!) so after my favorite concealer (IT cosmetics in Natural Medium), I used the Nyx Concealer CW03 in Light, which brightened up my face!
