Full Face of First Impressions Testing Makeup Look + Outfit

Hey 😄 How are all of you? I hope you had a fantastic week! I can't believe it's been over 2 months since we started Distorted Priorities. As always, thank you so much for your support that you've been giving us - we're currently working on future projects, collaborations and possibly a future giveaway so stay tuned 😉

For today's blog post I decided to do something that I have been seeing all over youtube and that would be the Full Face of First Impressions Testing Makeup Look. Basically, put into simpler words this is a makeup look that I've created with products that I will be trying out for the first time so you will be getting a review on each product too! A couple of weeks ago my girlfriends and I decided to go for a Sunday morning breakfast (yes, we were feeling fancy - don't judge!!) so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to create this extremely simple makeup look. I will also be showing you what I wore on that day. Just a small side note: for this post almost all of the products used are new to me except for the eyeshadow I use to fill in my brows and my powder foundation. Links to the products will be at the end of the post :) Let's begin!

The eyeshadow look

I started off by applying my Milani Primer. I really liked its texture and my makeup stayed on all day so I guess it serves its purpose! I applied that all over my face and then moved on to foundation.

I recently purchased the Milani 2 in 1 foundation and concealer in the shade warm beige and although I do not like the tube at all since there is no pump to apply the foundation to your beauty blender I really like the coverage plus it says that it's oil free. Another thing I didn't like is that after I applied it my skin looked super shiny (I did get rid of the shininess by applying powder foundation). But I loved the coverage it gave me - on the bottle it says it gives you medium to full coverage.

Now I know I could have skipped the following step since the foundation was a 2 in 1 one but I still applied a little bit of concealer on my pimples and under-eye circles. I used the L.A Girl concealer in the shade Creamy Beige. Once again I did not like the tube at all - it's so hard for the product to actually come out of the tube to apply it onto your face so I don't think I'd buy it again due to its packaging however it did cover my imperfections.

Afterwords I applied my Rimmel Powder Foundation to remove the shininess that I had from the foundation and to set everything in place.

I bought the Milani and L.A. Girl products from this online Maltese store called Beauty Pixie Store. Basically this is an online website where you can buy products from brands that you don't find in Malta .. minus the excessive shipping costs you normally pay so you get free shipping to Malta and Gozo! They offer products from some of my favorite brands such as Milani, Gerard Cosmetics, theBalm and L.A. Girl. They're expanding their line and I love their service - they were so helpful. So if you like to check them out you can do so here. Also, if you want to purchase any products from this site, the Beauty Pixie Store were kind enough to provide us with a discount code for our lovely viewers - so if you apply the code DISTORTEDPRIORITIES5 you will benefit from a 5% discount off your overall bill ❤ Amazing right? There is no minimum amount required that you need to spend. P.S.: I bought 2 lip products from this site; one from Gerard Cosmetics and one from Milani - so stay tuned for reviews 😉

Next I filled in lightly my brows with my Essence Quattro Eyeshadow using the darkest shade.

For my eyeshadow I decided to do a really simple one. I used my Sleek Limited edition collection palette in Whimsical Wonderland that I got as part of the goodie bag when I attended the Bloggers event at Melita Health and Beauty.

First I applied the silver shade called Hall-Of-Mirrors which I used as a base as it looks like a white shade and then I applied the lilac colour called Hit-The-Bell all over my lid. I loved the colours so much  - they're so bright and pigmented. Then I applied a regular brown shadow (I actually used the darkest brown shade from my contouring palette!) at the outer part of my lid and blended that with the other two colours to create dimension. For mascara I used another product I got from Melita Health and Beauty that is the Max Factor False Lash Epic mascara.

I loved my lashes - they give your lashes more length and volume.  I finished the look by applying some blush from a gift pack I earned from EstÊe Lauder and finished the look with this gorgeous pinkish-nude matte lip cream by Sleek in the shade Bittersweet which I also purchased from Melita Health and Beauty.

You can purchase all of the 3 products I mentioned from their shop - their salesgirls are so helpful so I'll guarantee you that you will not leave empty handed! As part of their 45th Birthday promotion, they are currently offering 10% off all purchases from their outlet (excluding medicine). This offer will be running from the 16th of November till the 30th of November. Their shop is in St.Julians very close to Big G's Snackbar. You'll find all their details on their website here or on their Facebook page.

For my outfit I wore a basic pair of sandals together with a pair of high waisted jeans and a plain black crop top which I wore under my black and white kimono. Outfit details will be listed below!

That is all for today! Links as usual will be at the end of the post. Hope you enjoyed it 😆 I'll see you next time 😙
