Playdate #FOTD | ColourPop, The Balm, Artistry, and Benefit Cosmetics

Played with makeup again! Yey!! 

When a busy momma has time to kill, this momma plays with makeup. But who in the right mind would put on a full face for a playdate? Me! Well, I had time to kill since Claud's afternoon nap took quite a awhile. I didn't want to her up so after getting dressed, I went ahead and gathered all the make up I had on my desk and tried to create a look with all of them.

I used a lot of awesome products in this look and it was quite exhilarating to see each product perform at its best. One of which the Benefit The Porefessional Matte Rescue Gel, which provided a flawless canvas for this look. The gel consistenc felt cool against my skin. Pore control is minimal but it was able to lessen the oiliness. 
For the Face

Artistry Exact Fit Foundation
Though a bit darker than my actual skin tone and cremier than I expected, I like that it provides an even coverage. This goes on medium to heavy to full-on plakado! Make sure to use only sparingly since a little goes a long way. If you don't have too much area that needs covering up, hald to one pump is enough.

for the rest of the face, I used the following products:

Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder
Mary Kay Mineral Pressed Powder
Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Concealer
Shiseido Perfecting Skin Concealer in 22
Happy Skin Glisten Up Cheek Stick
Clinique Chubby Stick in Sculpting Contour
Benefit Hoola Box 'O Powder Bronzer
The Balm Instain Blush in Lace

Since I knew that putting on too much color was too much for a playdate, I did a simple nude eyes for this look. It was also a great time to roadtest The Balm's Smoke Balm trio palette.

For the Eyes
Clinique Lid Smoothie in Pinko Biloba
TheBalm Smoke Balm (the green smoky palette)
L'Oreal Brow Artist Designer Pro
L'Oreal Super Liner Ultra Sharp
Benefit They're Real Mascara

For the lips

Mattes are love but you gotta take care of your lips with a balm to avoid chapping.

Benefit BeneBalm PosieTint
Colourpop Ultra Mattein SoLow

Colourpop is really changing the beauty scene! Isn't this a gorgeous matte lips colors?

I'm pretty happy with this look!  My skin is cooperating lately that I get to play around with more products, thanks to my regular Black Diamond treatments at SkinCell.
