Who doesn’t love a birthday?! This year I turn the ripe old age of 22… time to sing Taylor Swift! (“I’m feeling 22, everything will be alright, if you keep me next to you!”)
Anyway, Birthday makeup is always one of my favs – only topped by Christmas and New Years! And so I thought I would put all my current favs on my face, just because what else is your birthday for?!
I start off my the Smashbox Foundation Primer which is a firm favourite. My foundation for the day is one of my new absolute favs , the Maybelline SuperStay Foundation. For concealer I use the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer as I don’t need a lot of coverage, as the foundation covers basically everything, and this concealer provides really good brightness. To set everything down I use the Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot Powder. My Max Factor Creme Bronzer and Freedom Contour Kit and shape, dimension and warmth to my face and I add a little colour back in with a light application of my Nars Orgasm Blush. The New Look Baked Highlighter is stunning, blinding and easy to work with. Love love love! If I used anything other than my Maybelline Brow Satin and GOSH Brow Gel would it even be me?
For my eyes I’m using my Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette, dipping into very nearly every shade to create this natural, warm look. I love this palette because it lets you make both bold eye looks and more natural eye looks, and the eyeshadow just blend sooo well! Beautiful formula, beautiful colours, a beautiful eyeshadow palette. No wing today, so straight onto mascara, and today I used the L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara – a new find, which as long as you can get over the mahusive brush, it’s actually a really good mascara providing a lot of volume without getting too clumpy.
Then finish it all off with the Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipstick in the shade 3, these lipsticks are to die for. They’re easy to apply, super pigmented, comfortable on the lips, lovely matte finish, super long wearing, and just all round amazing! And this colour is such a lovely deep nude.
So, that’s what I’m wearing today, for my 22nd birthday!
See you tomorrow!
