Lately, I have been finding it difficult to have the motivation to blog, so I took a step back to focus on myself. I am back now, and hopefully I will be able to stay on track because I have several exciting posts planned for the rest of this month.
Now for today’s post, I wanted to create a makeup look that was chosen by Google’s random number generator. Since I have a decent collection of Jeffree Star makeup, I decided to narrow down my eyeshadow palettes, highlighters, and lipsticks to only be from Jeffree Star Cosmetics whereas the rest of the makeup products included all the makeup brands I own.
To begin with the eyes, I have 6 different eyeshadow primers, and the random number generator chose #6, which was the Too Faced primer. The primer is comparable to the Urban Decay Primer Potion I regularly use, but I do prefer the applicator of the Urban Decay primer. Next, I chose the eyeshadow palette, and I have 9 Jeffree Star Palettes. Out of those, the number generator picked #7, which was the Mini Breaker that has 9 shades. To choose the eyeshadow shades, I generated four numbers – #3, #4, #6, and #7 and created the eyeshadow look based on those. I think the purples, pink, and gold worked well together. To complete my eye look, I used the Tarte Lights, Cameras, Lashes mascara because I only open one mascara at a time.
For my face makeup, I started off the Laura Mercier primer because that is the only face primer I have. I have 7 liquid and powder foundations, and the random number generator chose #6, which was the Laura Mercier liquid foundation I regularly use for my makeup looks. Since I know the foundation is too light for my skin tone, I topped it with the NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation. For concealer, I had 4 to choose from, and the number generator chose #2, which was the Lancome concealer. It is a fine full-coverage concealer, but I prefer the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. As far as blush, I have 9 different blushes, and the number generator picked #6, which was the Urban Decay blush. This blush used to be my favorite, but I have not used it in so long because I normally use a Soap & Glory or Tarte blush, so it was nice being able to use an old favorite again. For highlighters, I have 3 Jeffree Star highlighter palettes, and the number generator chose #1, the 24 Karat palette. The shades of this palette are rather dark, so I was a bit worried the number generator would choose the darkest shade, but it chose #1, which is the lightest and worked well with the look I already had going on.
The makeup look was going well until I got to the lips. I have 5 Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks, and the number generator chose #2, which was the Family Jewels shade. The shade is pretty, but it was too dark to go with the eyeshadow look. To hopefully save the look, I decided to top the liquid lipstick with one of the Jeffree Star lip ammunitions. I have 9 total, and the number generator picked #4 Alien Tears, which has a pink shimmer and lightened the lipstick a little bit, but the lipstick was still too dark for my liking. Even though the lipstick was too dark, I liked how the overall look turned out.
