Quick Face of the Day Post with Cargo Cosmetics, Ittse, and Gerard Cosmetics

Happy hump day, dear readers! The day has run away with me, as have all the days now that I am out of town, and I'm posting this later than I had planned. I'm heading back to the wildfire devastation in California, and while I am looking forward to getting into some semblance of a routine, I am a little apprehensive about seeing the damage in person again. I have been immensely thankful to have the option of taking my children away from the situation, if only for a little while. While I've still been keeping track of the evacuation statuses and reopening of areas, being physically removed has helped my mental state tremendously. It certainly won't be easy being back, but I feel more rested and better prepared to emotionally handle the havoc the fires have caused my community.

As I attempt to keep things as normal as possible, I wanted to share a post sharing my face of the day. Here is my look from the high elevation of Crested Butte, Colorado!


Cargo Cosmetics: You Had Me At Aloha eyeshadow palette
Ittsē: Run the World Illuminator
Gerard Cosmetics: French Toast Lipstick

As I was shoving things in a suitcase, I grabbed a full cosmetic bag and the closest eyeshadow palette to toss in the mix. It didn't really hit me until I opened it to do makeup that I had grabbed a Hawaiian-inspired palette while visiting the snow-capped mountains. While I realize there are spots in Hawaii that do see snow, I generally think of warm weather and the beach. I was rather amused at how this worked out and naturally had to snap a photo with the snow in the background for the previous photo.


Being away from my light setup and having to make do with less than ideal lighting outdoors was trying, but you can hopefully still see the look I created easily enough. It is a great everyday look that is so natural!

And that, dear readers, concludes today's super short post! I hope you like the natural look I've shared and don't mind my ramblings about life back at home!

Until next time, have a wonderful evening!
XO!

  4. Oh no, was your home area impacted by the fires?? I work in SF and the air quality was terrible out there, I can't imagine how bad it must've been in the areas that were much closer to the areas impacted. I am glad to hear you were able to evacuate with your family to a better location!

    Your makeup is absolutely lovely, you really have that healthy glow to your face!

  18. That's so funny that that happened to be the palette you randomly picked up and you were going to a colder not so tropical area. You conquered that challenge very well!
