Beauty Face of the Day

fotd: contouring and bronze smokey eyes

January 12, 2015

Ok, I know I promised a Victoria’s Secret look for my next post but I just had a massive breakout along my jaw and am giving my face a break till it clears up!

It probably didn’t help my skin that I taught a contouring class yesterday and heaped layers of product on during my demo, but since I was already made up I figured I’d take a photo for posterity before I washed it all off.


As a visual aid, I also made a couple of face charts for the class – something I haven’t done in ages. I can totally see myself using them more regularly in the future though. Aside from being a useful point of reference for replicating a look, they’re great for getting creative with…especially when my skin is bad and I want to test out something new!
