Friday Face of the Day


I wanted to start doing some posts featuring MY face (just for you Val) along with
the products that I used for that look. Friday seems like a puuuurfect day to do this.

I'm always fond of neutral looks, but lately it's really been my go to. Neutral eyes, cheeks, lips
the whole nine yards. I have a few new products that I haven't had the chance
to talk about and feature so I am going to do that today.

So, here's my face.... oooooo, ahhhhh.

May not be the best lighting for actually seeing the color of products, but
I decided to do this last night and had no natural light. Sorry!

So, here are most of the products I used. Forgot my mascara and
Revlon lip butter. ooops!

Foundation: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour (sample I am trying)
Bronzer: Nars Laguna
Highlighting: MAC skinfinish in Soft & Gentle (powder)
Highlighting: MAC cream color base in Shell (cream)
Blush: MAC Gingerly
Eyes: Wet n Wild Silent Treatment
Mascara: Mally Volumizing
Lips: Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

New Product Alert!!
I think I have talked about how my new favorite thing in my
make-up routine is highlighting my cheekbones. If you want an easy step
to make your skin look fresh, healthy, glowy, and luminious then highlighting is where you
need to be. : )

This is a new product I bought this week and have been eyeballing it for a long time.
This is MAC skinfinish in the shade Soft and Gentle. As you can see it's a brown/pink
powder that has shimmer to it when applied to your face that just gives a very
healthy glow to your skin. LOVE it!! I'm obsessed with using it.

Retails for $29. Seems a bit pricy, but seriously I think this will last me a lifetime!

New Product Alert!!
Another highlighting product from MAC. Again, have had my eye on this
cream color base for quite some time in the shade Shell.

This is a cream product that can be applied under or over foundation with a brush
or fingers to the top of your cheekbones for a little healthy shine.

This color is a light neutral pink with a little shimmer and retails for $17.50.

New Product Alert!!
Yes, I know... I've gotten a little carried away lately.

This is MAC blush in the color Gingerly. This is not really a shade I would have
gravitated to on my own, but was named a top product of 2011 by the lovely
Amarixe on Youtube. I cannot even begin to express how obsessed I have been with
this blush. She was spot on when she said it is the perfect every day blush that
warms up your cheeks and gives a healthy look.

It looks a little scary orange in the pan, but it is a gorgeous terracotta warm coral
shade that retails for $20.00

When I googled images of this blush... look who I found!!

Awwww snap Ya'll. Article said MAC gingerly is one of Kim K favorite
blush! Makes me love it even more now! Ha.

I recently did a post about how I love the new Revlon lip butters and if you haven't
tried them you should really get your hands on a few. They are so pigmented and

I finished my look off with the shade on the far left which is my favorite for every day.
Peach Parfait is the shade and it's a lovely peachy/coral shade with a bit of

Hope you enjoyed this post and it was somewhat informative and you have
a GREAT weekend!

  1. I hope my make up drawer never sees your make up drawer.. it will feel far less inferior.


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
