The Complete Look | My Birthday

For whatever reason, most people I know feel the need to dress extra trampy on their birthday. Me, not so much.

I’m obsessed with all things floral and lace, mixing prints and textures, pastels etc. Somehow I managed to get it all in for my birthday outfit.

MAKEUP OF THE DAY | Natural Makeup for Prom

Prom is around the corner and it’s time to finalize your makeup look.

As a freelance makeup artist, I have to be in tune with the latest trends and the wants of my clients.

This year, the biggest requests I’m getting are natural makeup and winged eyeliner.

Because prom-goers are often under the age of 18, the natural makeup look is perfect and prevents the possibility of looking like a clown.

Here’s the look I put together for one of my clients:IMG_0545

Makeup of the Day | Lime Crime + Urban Decay Vice 2 + the Fun Palette

Lime Crime how I love thee.

Lime Crime does funky, opaque lip colors like no other. Their scent is amazing, they go on smooth and they stay in place, eliminating the need for lip liner. I have eight shades (so far!) but my latest favorite is Chinchilla, a grey with purple undertones.

Here’s how I wore it for the first time:

IMG_9698

I chose to focus the attention on the lip color by keeping the eye makeup pretty simple.

While there were a couple of people at work that asked if I was okay or told me I looked “gothic” but the majority of the responses were positive. My peers seemed to dig the funky, edgier look as much as I did.

Why I love this color? Well, obviously because it’s purplish (sort of), but also because it’s a way of embracing the edgy black lipstick trend in a more wearable tone.

Makeup of the Day | LORAC POREfection Foundation + Pinks and Purple

 

So, if you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m obsessed with pink and purple eyeshadows. I know people are afraid of them, but they shouldn’t be! I’m hoping that at the very least my posts help inspire people to try them out.

Anywho, the most exciting thing for me today was trying out my new LORAC POREfection Foundation. It’s my first high-end foundation (aside from a MAC foundation I got recently) and I chose it because of the great reviews online. I also happened to color match myself perfectly. Stay tuned for a First Impressions video on it.

Makeup of the Day | Revlon Colorstay Sea Mist

 

Revlon Colorstay eyeshadow quad in Sea Mist initially looked like a “grab bag” of colors. A pink, a blue, a purple and a green. I honestly didn’t think it would work.

 

I was wrong.

This quad quickly became one of my favorites, and you can see why:

IMG_8950

When blended nicely, the colors create this “starry night” type look that is not too purple, too blue or too green. The light blue shade packed onto the lid catches the light perfectly and brightens up even my brown eyes. 🙂
