FOTD 7/2/15- Natural in a New NYX Palette


Happy Independence Day to you if you’re in the US! I hope that everyone has a safe and fun holiday planned! 🙂 I’m running a race (a 10K) and then going to my friend’s house for food and fireworks.

I am sharing some makeup I wore the other day, because I am really excited about the NYX Highlight & Contour palette. I just picked this up at Ulta (for $12! Yay, coupons + sale!) and I am SO happy that I did! I am already hooked on it!


This makeup is about as easy as it gets, plus it’s fast to apply.


Mary Kay Luminous Foundation in Beige 2
NYX Highlight & Contour palette- banana powder under eyes, highlighter on cheeks, & bronzer blended around the face
MAC Something Special cream blush



MAC Tan pigment
Starlooks Wyld cream shadow (base)
CoverGirl Super Sizer mascara
Becca Matte Ombre palette
NYX Tame & Frame in Brunette


ColourPop Tootsi Lippie Stix

This was my first time using the NYX palette, and I was impressed from the beginning. I love it! I can do practically all of my makeup with this palette. I don’t contour (I definitely don’t spend time carving out my face), so I can probably use the darkest shade for eyeshadow. That said, I find this palette very versatile, since one of the contour shades works on me as a blush. I don’t want to reveal too much now, since I’m going to review it with more use, but I really love it!

Have a great holiday!
