Beauty | Tropical Twist

Happy Wednesday, babes! Apparently, I've been feeling super creative because there's been such a huge amount of makeup looks on the blog today. My apologies and I promise that I'll be coming out with more than just makeup tutorials. I think I have blogger's block in all the categories. Let me know what you'd like to see!


  • Let's prep that base (and by base, I mean our face!) The Paula's Choice RESIST Booster Oil is my most favorite facial oil right now. It can be mixed in with your moisturizer or serum but I use it by itself before my makeup.
  • As always, for foundation, I use the L'Oreal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation in the shade 202 and blended it in with a damp Beauty Blender. To conceal, I use my trusted ColourPop No Filter Concealer in Light Neutral (almost empty!) and blended under the eyes and any other areas that need to be concealed.
  • For bronzer, I've been using the Glamour Dolls Fakecation Bronzer. For blush, I used the Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Blush (such a beautiful, classic pink!). Lastly, for highlighter, I used a shade from the Makeup Revolution Blush Palette in Hot Spice. They don't have names but it's the second one in from the left, on the bottom.
  • Moving onto the eyes next. As always, I primed my eyelids with the MAC Paint Pot in Painterly. This is basically my skintone shade and I'm using this to even out any veins or discoloration on my lids and give a nice, base for my eyeshadows to sit and blend on top of.
  • Starting with the crease shade, I used ColourPop's Wake Up Call and applied that, in a windshield wiper motion, into my crease. Next for the first quarter of my lid, towards the inner corner, I took Tiny Tangerines and patted that on. Next, I took Wait For it and patted that on. I patted them on because I found this keeps the fallout to a minimum. On the outer v, I took 143 and blended that out and into Wait For It. With a clean blending brush, I gently blended the edges of each shade into each out. ColourPop shadows blend really nicely and smoothly! I continued the same pattern on my bottom lash line as well. Inner corner is Minty from ColourPop x My Little Pony Palette.
  • To finish my eyes, I used the L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara. Ya'll, I've been calling the Infallible Lash Paradise. Oy. Ignore me. For brows, I used the ColourPop Brow Boss Pencil in Dark Brown.
  • For lips, I used ColourPop Lippie Stix in She Bad and Westie mixed together. These might be discontinued but ColourPop Lay Over looks like a good dupe.
