FOTD: Neutral Eyes and Bold Lips

Hey everyone!
For today's makeup I decided to go with neutral light eye shadow and a bold classic red lip.  I really like this look and for me it could easily be an everyday look.  I really like the way red lips look on me and how it contrasts with my pale skin.  I am thinking about doing a tutorial on this look on my YouTube channel, comment below if that would be something you are interested in seeing.

For my foundation I used the Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation in Ivory 805.  Then for my under eye concealer I used Benefit Fakeup Concealer in Light 01, which is suppose to be a hydrating crease concealer that doesn't crease.  It does crease on me though, just like all the other concealers I've tried. .  For setting my under eye concealer I used the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Cream, this powder has been discontinued but I have a backup and it's my favorite powder for setting foundation and concealer.  I also used the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Fair on  a few spots I have.  I used the Estee Lauder Just Blush Eye and Cheek Powder in Rose Tutu for my blush and it is sadly discontinued.  For contouring I used the L'Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Powder in C3 Creamy Natural.  I also used the Maybelline Baby Skin Primer, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Mood Light, and the Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray.

For my brows I used the Maybelline Master Shape Brow Pencil in Soft Brown along with the NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Blonde.  I also went ahead and used the Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara as a brow gel in order to set my brows. As for an eye prime I used the e.l.f. Eyelid Primer in Sheer and the whole eye look I used the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette.  I used a combination of w.o.s. and foxy on my lid, then I used Naked 2 on my outer corner and in my crease.  I used w.o.s. to blend everything out an foxy as my brow bone highlight.  I skipped eyeliner and used my current favorite mascara which is Maybelline Volum' Express The Rocket Mascara.

For my lips I went with a cool toned matte balm  which would be the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Standout.
