Contouring Part 1

I have this obsession about make-up. I do not wear it often or use it everyday, but I spend so much money buying something different. The good thing is I do not buy make-up frequently but when I do get these serge of obsession for it. I splurge. This time I wanted to try my hand at contouring.

Some of my basic make-up and brushes

The bareMineral products I’ve had since I started doing make-up (6 years ago). That’s how much I wear make-up. Getting older though I’ve been wearing it more often but still not everyday.

First, let me tell you that I tried 2 other contour palettes before I decided on the Kat Von D Shade + Light Palette {$46}. The first one I tried was the Pro Lorac Contour Palette {$45}, I wasn’t too excited about it because the powder was very lose and chalky. It did come with a contour brush that I wish I could have kept.

The contour brush is amazing!

The other one I bought was the Ulta’s Contour Kit {$18}, honestly did like this palette. The problem was the only 2 highlight colors had shimmer (I am not a shimmer girl, matte girl over here). I really like the shade colors, this kit had 4 shades of bronzer. This would be a great palette for darker girls that like shimmer on their skin.

First attempt using Kat Von D’s palette

The first time I put on Kat Von D’s palette I was still skeptical. Like a lot of things, I wanted something instant to make me look like those make-up vloggers. Then I realized like all things it takes time and practice to get where they are (especially for someone like me who does not put on make-up everyday). In this first pictures, I put my bronzer to far towards my cheeks. As one ‘how to’ video for round faces said, “not to emphasize your big cheeks by shaping them too much inside your face.” I also wasn’t going too heavy on the foundation or concealer in this first attempt.

Second attempt

This second attempt I was more happy with. It made me look like I lost 5 pounds and definitely shaped my face longer than more round. I also went a little heavier on the foundation and concealer. Trying to hide more of my imperfections. The key to really great contouring are, the brushes. If you are like me and to lean to the more expensive side on products. The brushes I have my sight on are so expensive individually I’m lacking some really good contouring. I am working my way up to it. If you have to learn something from this first contour post. It is the 3 key essentials: knowing your face structure, knowing your skin tone shades, having the right tools {brushes}.

The Great Hunter Hunt

It has been months since I’ve search the web for the best deal on a pair of Hunter boots. {Hunter Boots are British heritage brand authentic rain boots} I’ve wanted a pair for a long time now, but has since then been putting it off since an original pair of boots is $150. On a good sale (on their website) is maybe about $110. The most shocking, is that a pair of ankle high rain boots are $155 (on sale at best $97)! How is a smaller boot more expensive…? Some might think that even at the sale price these boots are too expensive. I always thought to get good quality you sometimes have to pay a little more. I do that with most of the products I buy (you could say I have expensive taste).

Hunter Boots & Ray-Ban Sunglasses

I finally found a “reasonable” pair last week during Hurricane Joaquin, and just my luck they came right after all the storm and flood. Being a mom, going out on rainy days or wet days I’m will not to be paying much attention about the steps I take. I needed some rain boots, I’ve never owned a pair in my life (at least not that I can remember). I found a sky-blue original pair searching on Groupon. The site they gave me with the best deal was ideel.com, which was $116 but signing up with the site gave me an additional 10% off on the purchase plus free shipping {total $114}. This site even had the new season colors as shown on the Hunter Boots website. I cannot wait to break this baby in. I’m kind of hoping it rains again soon.
