Last Breath of Summer : Makeup of the Day : FOTD

While thinking about doing my makeup this morning as I paged through Pinterest for inspiration, I kept coming across tons of dark, smoky, vampy looks that I wanted to play around with. I wanted so badly to just throw on my darkest lipstick and create the perfect deep brown smoky eye. However, once I sat down at my vanity, I decided to give summer one last hurrah, to go out with a bang and do something very colorful and fun. It's Labor Day here in the US, the symbolic end of summer, so here is the "Last Breath of Summer" just for the occasion!

Products Used:

Bobby Brown Extra Face Oil
Covergirl Outlast All Day Primer
Revlon Colorstay Oily Skin Foundation - 150 Buff
Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation - 20 Classic Ivory
Benefit Boi-ing Concealer - Light
ELF Mineral Concealer - Fair
Physicians Formula Multi Color Pressed Powder - Creamy Natural
Loreal True Match Lum Powder Glow Illuminator
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush - Pampered (limited edition holiday 2014)
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Milani Felt Tip Brow Tint Pen - Dark Brown

Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade - Dark Brown
Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer
Sleek Makeup I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette - Acid
Kat Von D Chrysallis Eyeshadow Palette
Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Pencil - Nude
Maybelline Lash Discovery Waterproof Mascara
Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara
ELF Studio Waterproof Mascara Top Coat

The eyes are totally matte, but so colorful. I originally wanted to make the main lid color a deep purple, but opted for white instead once it came down to it. The white makes the look even brighter, I think. 

NYX Wonder Pencil - Light
Flower Beauty Luxury Lip Color - LS11 Morning Glory
Loreal True Match Lum Powder Glow Illuminator

It was impossible to get a good shot of the lips. They look so much cooler in person than I could possible get myself to capture on camera. They're super nude and washed out, but the center of my bottom lip and the cupid's bow on my top lip are highlighted with my face highlighter of the day. 

Thanks so much for reading!
