The Birthday Face

Maybellinne Colour Tattoo in "Pomegranate"; MAC blusher in "Stubborn"; Jemma Kidd highlighter in "Iced Gold"; Rimmel eyeshadow quad in "Smokey Brun"; No 7 lip liner in "Blush"; Revlon matte lipstick in "Mauve it Over"; YSL Touche Eclat foundation in BR 060; YSL Touche Eclat in 5; MAC eye brow pencil in "Spiked"; MAC technakohl liner in "Graphblack"; Maybellinne The Falsies mascara; Shu Uemura lash curlers; Guerlain Terracota bronzer in 07; MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW30; MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in "Medium Dark".

Even though we didn't have any big plans for the day, I still wanted to do a little something special with my make up. I put a bit of effort into my eyeshadow (which I rarely do), even though you can't really see it with my eyes open (damn you, hooded lids!). haha I knew I wanted to use the Maybellinne cream eyeshadow, so I put it on with a flat eyeshadow brush and set it in place with the darkest colour of this Rimmel quad. I love this eyeshadow palette so much, it's so hard to find one where all the colours are perfect, but this is it! I felt I needed a little black thrown in there, so I added this MAC black eye liner to my lash line. I used an angled brush to blend it and then I dragged what was left on the brush to my lower lash line! I decided paired the relatively dark eye with my favourite nude lip combo, the No7 lip liner and this Revlon lipstick!
