Ulta Haul with Date night B&A

So last night I did a semi-retro look for my date night. I wanted to rock a bold red lip. I had just gotten my Ulta haul with my new false lashes so I couldn't resist going super glam. 

I was super excited to get some new gel colors as well as the  new NYX Eyebrow Gel in blonde. I'm also allergic to latex and the Eylure Pre-glued lashes are the only latex-free falsies on the market and they've been discontinuing styles so I stocked up on my favorite since they were BOGO.

119 Shimmery Silhouette, 184 WOW!!, & 116 Simply Stunning as well as a mattifying topcoat.

The NYX Tinted Butter Lip Balms in Marshmallow (Top) and Macaroon (Bottom)

1. Prime
Sephora Oil Control Primer

2. Concealer
Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Concealer in 1.0

3. Foundation
Lancome Teint Idole 24 Hour in 100 Ivory

I love this foundation! It's super light and looks great for over 12 hours. I don't get that itchy feeling at the end of the night, and oiliness is minimal.

4. Contour, Blush, & Highlight
Pixi Bronzer in Subtly Suntouched, NYX Blush in Taupe as contour, & Sigma Creme de Couture blush in Strawberry Ambrosia, Watt's Up Highlighter

I did a very light contour because I wanted the lips to be the main focus

5. Eyes
Urban Decay Anti-Aging Primer, The Balm Meet Matte Nude (Malloy, Singh, Rosen), Shiro Dwarf in the Flask as eyeliner, Estee Lauder DW Mascara, Lancome Waterproof Eyeliner in White, Eylure Lashes 117

I love the Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette. It's my go to favorite for when I want a soft, subtle eye look. The eyeshadows are buttery and blend easily. Since my eyes are slightly hooded I tight line using Shiro's Dwarf in the Flask.

6. Eyebrows
NYX Eyebrow Gel in Blonde

I am absolutely in love with the new NYX Eyebrow Gel. I used the blonde one. You can see how well it matches, and how natural it looks. I applied it with a stiff angled brush after squeezing some on the back of my hand. At Ulta I swatched this one and compared it to the Anastasia one and I preferred NYX's because it was less ashy and it was a little lighter.

7. Lips!
MUFE Aqua Lip Liner in 09C Burgundy, Fyrinnae Lip Luster in Dragon's Blood
