Yesterday's MOTD!

Yesterday, the Ulta I work at hosted an Urban Decay event, so the majority of this look is made up of Urban Decay products. <3  I used a lot of colors from the Electric palette. 

All products are by Urban Decay unless otherwise noted.

I used:
Primer Potion in Eden
Venus e/s
Revolt pressed pigment (inner corner)
Slowburn pressed pigment (lid)
Jilted pressed pigment (crease)
Urban pressed pigment (outer 'v')
Savage pressed pigment (blush)
Ink for Eyes eyeliner
Benefit They're Real mascara
Anastasia Brow Wiz in Brunette
Lorac Aquaprime 
Naked Skin Foundation in 1.0
MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW15
MAC Cremesheen Glass in On the Scene

Wish I would have gotten better pictures. :(  My one year old is sick and did not allow for it (you can see his hand creeping into the 2nd picture above).   

Hope you enjoyed this look!

<3 Katy

My First Post: A MAC Haul.

Visiting the Woodfield MAC store last night was like reuniting with a friend I haven't seen in what feels like forever.

I frequented this particular location in 2008 and had a nice stash of eyeshadows and lipglass to prove it.

As a born again makeup junkie I saw it fit to add to my MAC collection, and so I did.  Made the trip out with one of my besties (Beh aka the Queen of Eyeliner) and now, I present you with a haul.

I bought:

Fix+- I was torn between getting this and Urban Decay's All Nighter and decided to pick this one up.  I have seen this in many tutorials for the Naked 3 palette as a way to improve the application of 'Dust,' one of the flakiest shadows of the bunch.  Never have I ever owned my own setting spray, so I am excited to try this.

Studio Finish Concealer in NW20- I already use this concealer in NW15 under my eyes, so I know it is a good product.  Great coverage and love that it has a SPF of 35.

Lipstick in 'Lady Danger' - I recently read Essiebutton's post about this lipstick, and I decided I absolutely had to have it.  Normally gravitate towards blue-based reds, so this coral-red is different for me.  Nonetheless, I have it on right now and am a fan.

195 Concealer Brush- This, along with my NW15 concealer, will be perfect for cleaning up my brows after I fill them in. My old concealer brush is falling apart, so it is time for a new one.

217 Blending Brush- Everyone and their mother has this brush, so I'm excited to see what the hype is about.  Surprised it isn't already in my collection.

219 Pencil Brush- Planning to use this to define my crease and apply shadow to the lower lashline.  About time I own a pencil brush.

Hope you all enjoyed this haul!  If you don't already, please follow me on Instagram: @katyplayswithmakeup.
