I'm home-bound today. Only makeup item used is the @yslbeauty Volupte Tint-In-Oil. My skin is super thirsty for moisture so the @lxmiofficial cream is heaven and I just scrubbed the remaining @baskandbloom Vibrant Radiance Face Cream from the jar lid under my eyes because that area is super dry. The @korresusa Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser is hydrating and doesn't dry out my skin as it's quite soothing. @skinceuticals Antioxidant Lip Serum is my HG, lip saver, bomb.com!! I'm quickly learning what my now super sensitive skin can handle as I progress thru treatment. I learned that anything with Shea butter is my best friend. And thick balms are golden too.

Today's mess brought to you by @loraccosmetics Pro palette @chanelofficial Precision Lip Definer in Mordore which I used to fill in the lips then I lined my lips with @maccosmetics Lip Pencil in Chestnut and then applied @tomfordbeautyusa Lipstick in Sable Smoke topped off with @chantecaille Gloss in Coco. I don't know why the @buxomcosmetics Lip Gloss in Mudslide was included as I didn't use it but I guess it's out of habit because I always pair Sable Smoke with it quite often.

Going to chemo with a smokey eye and nude lippie. I thought I would reach for my @natashadenona eye palette but I woke up this morning with a spicy attitude.

We had a good run together but it's time for my @urbandecaycosmetics Naked palette to go to makeup heaven as it has turned bad on me with a rank odor. 😱

I've managed to snag three different eye looks out of the @natashadenona eye palette in #4. As crazy as this sounds I find the shadows apply best on bare skin versus over primer and even the pigmentation is better without primer...especially the chocolate matte shade which by the way makes for a great crease shade. Can't wait to see what I come up for Thursday and Friday.

Today's skincare. @thayersnatural toner
@caudalie Polyphenol C15 Anti-Wrinkle Defense Serum & Polyphenol C15 Broad Spectrum SPF20 Anti-Wrinkle Protect Fluid @clinique eye cream and @josiemarancosmetics Argan oil for my scalp.

I have to speak upon all the wonderful greatness of the SPF. It does not leave behind that dreaded nasty white cast and my skin soaks it right up which allows for a nice canvas for makeup application.

Since going for the shaved look I had to re-evaluate how I do my makeup so my face doesn't disappear and all one see's is my big old head. So a light contour of my cheekbones is needed along with a highlighter. While I only have one contour product I do have a ton of highlighters so now I have zero excuse to not pull one out.

Day two with the @natashadenona eyeshadow palette in #4. @dior Star Foundation @chanelofficial blush in 89 Canaille @maccosmetics lipstick in "O" which is a very complex shade that depending on the light/angle can appear bronzey brown or a plummy brown and @makeupforeverofficial Artist palette to use the black shade to smoke out my outer corner and line bottom lash line
