TGIF! I couldn’t be any happier that today is Friday! I still have to go to work in the morning but Friday always gives off such great vibes. I was a little tired when I first rolled out of bed but I’ve been in a pretty great mood all day. I think it’s because I started off playing in some really great makeup today and ended up creating a look I loved. It’s hard not to feel good when your makeup is on point, right?

As usual, I started off with my Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Powder and NARS Amande Radiant Creamy Concealer because they give me the most flawless complexion. Then I added all the bells and whistles to dress up the basics and get all Fancie. The stars of the show were:

This was my first time trying my Bobbi Brown goodies and I’m pretty impressed so far. I’ve been sitting on Bronze Glow for forever which is nuts because it’s a beautiful highlighting powder and I was so excited back when I first ordered it. But now that I’ve finally cracked that baby open I’m all for it! I’m also a big fan of Pale Pink blush which I honestly didn’t think it was going to work for me at all. See, when you’re nice and chocolate-y, anything with “pale” in the name is completely out of bounds. I mean, I was giving Bobbi some serious side eye when I received it in my welcome kit because it looked too pale for me. However, the color shows up just fine and it’s actually quite flattering. Color me shocked! The Brightening Lip Gloss was pretty good, too. It reminded me a little of MAC Lipglass but a little more lightweight and not as sticky or tacky.

Along with my Bobbi goodies, I’m also becoming quite a big fan of the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer. This stuff is the bomb! I haven’t really been having issues with my makeup fading but I have been struggling with my pesky fine lines now that I’m sporting makeup for 8+ hours a day. By the time I get home, my concealer has started to lightly creep into my dry under eye lines and my foundation has started creasing around my laugh lines. I haven’t really experienced either of those problems since I’ve been using this baby. It’s still pretty early but I think this baby is a keeper!
