Friday Face of the Day


Well, we made it to Friday and I hope you have fun weekend plans ahead. 

Today's FOTD is going to be a three in one... product review, holiday look, and fotd. 

With the Holidays right around the corner I have tried a few looks that would be fun
to wear to a Christmas party, out and about, or just chilling with your family. I like this look
because it incorporates a soft gold eye with a wearable (in my opinion) red lip. I know some 
people have a hard time sporting a red lip and if you are used to wearing a more neutral lip
it is a big change, but this one to me is a little more natural.

Key products used in this look:

On my cheeks I applied Benetint, a rosy lip or cheek stain that
gives a very natural flush of color. 

After applying the cheek tint I applied this light pink blush by NYX in 
Rose Garden to set the liquid. 

For lips I used my new Covergirl blastlipstick lip duo in Smooch.
I have been curious to try this after hearing some good reviews and seeing all the
Sofia Vergara commercials.

This lip product is unique in that it is supposed to make your lips look
3 Dimensional as you use two colors. One shade is shimmer and the other is a matte cream.
 The darker shade is to be applied all over your lips and then
 the lighter color to the bottom center of your lip and it's supposed to give your
lips more depth.

Darker shade in Smooch.
It's kind of a brick red. It's not a bright cherry red at all.

Lighter shade in Smooch. 
Lighter peachy/pink. 

I have to say I do like the blastlipstick... it's very long lasting and has more of a matte finish
which I prefer. It does make for a more unique lip with the two shades incorporated. These 
retail at your drugstore for $8.

Other products used for this look:

Clinique Even Better Foundation
MAC Soft & Gentle Highlighter 
(blush included above)

Urban Decay Naked Palette in colors Halfbaked (all over lid) and 
Buck (in crease)  
Loreal Gel Liner in Black 
Almay Get Up and Grow Mascara

Have a great weekend!

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.
