December Beauty FOTD

My Instagram Photo A Day challenge is well underway and I have successfully completed all of the days thus far.  Today I was trying to come up with a FOTD for the challenge of Defined, but I got a little carried away!  I was going to do a simple contoured look but I started playing with some new goodies and I liked the direction in which it was headed.

I have been experiencing some dryness issues lately, as well as having a few breakouts.  It has been a rough road trying to get everything balanced out but I am trying to conceal as much as I treat.  I used the Bare Minerals Ready Foundation and I think that I am in love with this product.  It looks like so much more than a powder and for that I am thankful.

The rest of my face makeup is Bare Minerals Mineral Veil, Josie Maran blush and bronzer (and I don’t know the names).  I am also using the Bare Minerals Secret Radiance as a highlight on my cheekbones.  I am also using a balm to make my lips shiny.  It has no color–the color on my lips is their natural pigment.

On my eye brows I am using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Express palette.  I love how easy it is to get defined brows with this kit. (First defined feature in this FOTD.)

My eyes are done using the Bare Minerals The Playlist 8.0 palette.  It is a lovely palette and I actually got it last night as a freebie in a grab bag for winning a contest at work.  It is amazing and I should have gotten it way sooner.

The last part in my challenge for Defined is my eyelashes.  I am using a new (to me) mascara and I really like it.  Different from what I would normally do but nice none-the-less.  It is the Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen.  I usually don’t go for a mascara that claims to do either of those things, I typically go for volume since my lashes are already long. 

Thanks for having a look at my FOTD.  If you have any questions, ask below.  Also share with me your favorite go-to look for this holiday season.  My looks haven’t really varied so much, always some form of shimmer.  :)
