full face ft. new makeup and MUFE Star Lit Powders*

It's been a while since I did a full face of make-up featuring brand new products, I decided that it would be the perfect time now, as I do have quite a few new items sent to me for review that I should make use of. I had recently came back from the Dominican and with my tan, I was finally able to match the Dermablend foundation that I received from an event end of last year. Even though I was shade matched at the event, I'm not sure why I was given such a dark shade? Maybe it was the wrong one packed into my tote bag, but hey, it works for me now! I will be doing a review of that foundation soon, as the focus of this post is on the beautiful Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powders.

 The three shades I was graciously sent from left to right below, include 13 (ivory), 19 (ultramarine) and 02 (frozen gold). The swatches you see below are with ONE FINGER SWIPE. You can see how pigmented they are, especially the ultramarine blue. The minute I saw the blue, I knew I had to have it and was inspired to create a look (the one featured below).  These pigments are finely milled and buttery soft. If you are using them on your lid, I highly suggest that you use a cream base so that it has something to stick to - when I used the blue and didn't originally use any cream base, it did move around - however, the minute I laid it on top of a cream stick shadow base, it stuck and didn't budge. 


I applied Copacabana, a coral on my cheeks, used the M-646 from MUFE on my crease and S-920 on my inner half of the lid. I used no.19 the ultramarine on the outer half of the lid (as mentioned above) and on my bottom lash one, and buffed it out with M-646 to diffuse the harsh lines. 

Products used to create this look include:
1. Dermablend - Loose Setting Powder
2. Dermablend - Smooth Liquid Camo - Chestnut
3. Rodial Blusher - Copacabana
4. Esquido Lash Glue
5. House of Lashes - Fake Lashes from Sephora Holiday collection
6. Milani - Brow Shaping Clear Wax
7. MAC - Coquette (used as brow powder)
8. Bare Minerals Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick - Tutu
9.  NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil - Black Bean
10. MUFE Starlit Powders - 19 (blue), 13 (champagne) and 02 (white iridescence gold)
11. MUFE Shadows in M-646 (light brown for crease) and S-920 (purple I used on inner half of the lid).

I typically only like to post 2 pictures of my look but  I had to post several just so that you can see how beautiful the blue is! 

Can we also take a moment to appreciate how beautiful the highlight is? I used no.13 on my upper cheekbones, and also I popped some no.02 on my inner corners as highlight.

I really highly suggest that you pick these up! Of course I would say pick up no. 19 the blue, but if you're not that adventurous, pick up no. 13 the champagne and you can use it as a highlighter and as an eyeshadow! 

Until next time, XO - M.
