yes, anoooother face of the day post!

 Hello ladies (and gents?)! Yes, I'm doing yet another FOTD post. Aren't you excited? >_< Anyways, I like doing these types of posts because it gives me a chance to show you what products I'm using, and what products look like on my big ol' face.

One thing I wanted to say is that I dug up my Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara today (it's still wet), and I remembered why I hadn't been using it much anymore. It used to be my HG mascara! I still do like it - it's not a bad mascara by any means.  However, it seemed to take ages to build it up to the volume and length that I wanted. And it smudged under my eyes. I've really been loving the YSL Faux Cils Shocking, which suuuucks because it's so friggin' expensive, but there it is. The Maybelline Falsies Flared is also a good drugstore option. But I don't think I'll be repurchasing Hypnose Drama anytime soon. Goodbye, old friend. :(

If you're curious about the necklace, it's pretty much a handmade House of Harlow copy that I found on eBay for ten bucks last year (I'd imagine you can still find a similar one). And I'm wearing the Old Navy dress I scored last week.

Hope you're all having a great week so far. Love you guys! <3

P.S. I'm on Instagram now and I'm kind of obsessed. My username is "dontcallmejesse" if you'd like to see photos of my kitties, muhself, and other random things! :D


  1. You look GORGEOUS! I love everything about this FOTD :)

    ♥ Jessica

  2. I love your eye shadow here. It looks great on you! And your skin looks amazing. I wish my skin was all glowy and blemish-free. I'm workin' on it!

    1. Thank you! It's not blemish-free, but the Lancome foundation covers up the ones I have really well! ;)

  3. About to look you up on Instagram... Your faces of the day are always amazing. ...! I tried posting one over the weekend and the pics ended up dismal.

    1. I usually end up taking like 10 pictures, because there are ALWAYS blurred shots, even when they don't look like they are on the viewfinder!

  4. you look beautiful! I enjoy all these updates !

    1. Thanks! I'm trying to make up for past slacking! lol

  5. i was going to say we have the SAME necklace!!! how does the NARS liner last on your waterline? I swatched it in the store and thought this is the most gorgeous brown in the world, then the SA told me it does not last so i let it go...and how do you like the Estee Lauder Bronzer? I swatched it the other day and thought i liked it!
    So happy about what you said about faux cils shocking!! i just got it during the Sephora sale. I tried it on in the store and my lashes were not even curled and the mascara curled them like magic! i was like GASP must buy must buy!

    1. I haven't tried any of the other shades of the NARS liner, but this one lasts really well! I think it's the perfect formula for lining the waterline, because it has a nicely pointed tip, but it's soft (but not too creamy!). I had always wanted the MAC chromographic pencil, but thought this would be a nice alternative. So far, so good! Also really loving the Estee Lauder bronzer. It's MASSIVE! It's great for a contour for me, which is usually what I use bronzers for anyways. I really thought I'd dislike Faux Cils Shocking (I've never been a fan of the original), but I love it! It's super black and gives length, volume, and curl. :)

  6. You look beautiful! I want your brows and perfect skin ^.^

  7. You look amazing! Your skin is flawless x

  8. Stunning makeup x you look absolutely luminous in this picture x
