Weekend Face ft. By Terry & Kat Von D

I've been sporting this super simple "nude" look over the past few weeks, switching things up here and there and fine tuning until I have reached the perfect combination. A good base, eyeliner that's slightly dramatic on the top lash line paired with very natural blush and sheer lipstick.
This, my friends, was the combination for me. My cat eye liner didn't look ratchet and I may have found the foundation of my dreams:

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner ($19 at Sephora) has been amazing for creating a sharp and precise winged out line. The formula isn't as intense of a black as Benefit Push-up Liner but the brush gives more control so you can have a more subtle look or a more fine tuned graphic line. It's a very fine brush applicator and I'll be reviewing it in more detail next week as I get to play with it more.

L'Oréal Miss Manga mascara for a fluttery voluminous lash. No mascara/liner on the lower lashline, just a hint of Anastasia highlighting pencil in Camille. Blush has been Tarte Exposed, and a hint of Dior Incognito on the lips.

The foundation is By Terry Cover Expert ($66 at Barneys) in shade #9 Honey Beige. By Terry is a difficult brand for me to find where I live but I was lucky enough to walk into a lovely place in Ann Arbor, Michigan last weekend called Lily Grace Cosmetics where not only did I get to troll a By Terry counter but I also got to meet one of my lovely readers! Hi Madeleine!

I am so in love with the Cover Expert foundation, I even proclaimed to elope with it in a Facebook status. Sorry not sorry. It's early days of testing and I will be doing a more in depth review later on but for now I am obsessed and I have refused to wear anything else on my face this week. 

I will take a deep breath now and prance off into the sunset with my newfound makeup loves.

What makeup have you been loving this week??

    1. thanks so much Divya <3 I've been practicing my cat eyeliner like a maniac these last couple of weeks haha

  2. I've been making a similar look: Bobbi Brown Rose Gold and Sand Dune longwear shadow pencils on the lids, Mac Coffee eye pencil, Nars Madly Blush and Nars Ophelia lipgloss. Alternately Giorgio Armani no 10 Sheer Blush and Chanel Boy lipstick. Base either Laura Mercier Smott Finish powder foundation or Nars Radiant TM, depending on the degree of heat and humidity.

    1. That'sll be Smooth Finish, not Smott ;).

  3. This is a really lovely makeup look, it really suits you! Your eyes look gorgeous :)
