Hey everyone! Welcome back to my blog!
As some of you might know, this past tuesday was my birthday, so today I will be sharing with you how I did my makeup look for that day and my outfit for that day!
Let’s get into it!
To start, I am going to be applying my Covergirl CG smoothers pressed powder as a base.
Next, Ill be taking my trusty Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette:Dabbing my brush into the shade NAKED and applying that all over my eyelids.Next, I’ll take the shade BUCK and, starting from the outer corners of my eye, diffuse it into the middle.Then, I’ll take the shade SIDECAR and apply it to the middle of my eyelids for some sparkle.Now, since it was my birthday, I wanted some extra sparkle. I’m going in with the shade HALF BAKED and applying that to the very center of my lids and blending it out.I want some subtle smokey eyes, So I’m going in with the shade HUSTLE and applying that to the outer edges of my eyes.Next I’m going to take the shade SIN and apply it to the inner corners of my eyes to make them pop (Also can we appreciate how I’m halfway blinking in this picture right here hahaha I could NOT stop laughing when I took it)Now that the eyshadow look is done, here comes the difficult part *breathes heavily*….. THE WINGED EYELINER *DUN DUN DUNNNN*
Haha jokes aside, I’m going to go in with my ALMAY liquid liner in black and draw a cateye. Take as long as you need with this step because it’s the most difficult and I had to start over when I couldn’t get them even… So frustrating isn’t it?After drawing the cateye, I curled my lashes. Honestly, nobody looks good doing this(unless you’re a supermodel like Gigi Hadid) so excuse my funny face here HAHAHAAfter that, I loaded on the mascara! Here, I am using Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara and wow.. this mascara IS really sensational. No falsies needed(also because I am scared of falsies, they just feel so odd) because the mascara does the work!Next, It’s time to contour and highlight! I don’t highlight or contour often, but it was my birthday so I wanted to look extra fancy.
I’m using my NYX Highlight and Contour Pro Palette which was affordable and works like a charm!Time to blend, blend, and blend some more! (Okay something fell into my eye during this, perhaps an eyelash and it hurt soooo bad)Time to blush! Here, I am using Sephora Blush in the shade Flirt it Up which, as the title implies, is a very bright and flirty pink.(Also appreciate how I’m blinking in the background hahaha this always happens to me).To complete this birthday glam look I will be applying Maybelline Matte Lipstick in the shade Rich Ruby, which is the perfect bright red.The finished look!
As for hair, I wanted to be a bit more relaxed, but still chic. I pulled all my hair back into a chic low bun. Don’t worry if it’s messy, it adds to the look! It’s fast, easy, and you’ll look incredibly sophisticated!
As for my outfit, I wanted to be comfortable yet stylish. I decided to pair a beige skirt from UNIQLO with this patterned sweater from trouve. I finished the look with these chic booties by COACH, a long black coat from Banana Republic, and a necktie scarf from Forever21.
