I’ve seen posts like these a lot before, where you show your special occasion makeup. And I just thought it might be a bit of fun, especially seeing at I’ve spoken about these products before but the outcome is much different to what you’ve seen me do before.
So last Saturday was my 23rd Birthday and I was in New York with a dramatically smaller makeup bag than what I’m used to, in order to save valuable suitcase room! I knew I wanted to go for something super glittery but using a single palette that is easy to travel with, i.e something that does everthing. So here goes…
I talk about this all the time, I pretty much own every colour! It’s a great base for dry shadows as it stays put and doesn’t crease. It has a little shimmer too which I love but is be great for wearing casually, not just on my birthday.
Stila Palette – Heart
This shade is a matte, taupe colour which I applied over the outer halves of my lids to add a bit of shadow and depth.
Stila Paletter – Peace
This was my crease shade, it’s a much warmer brown with a super subtle sparkle.
Stila Palette – Character
Useing a smaller shadow brush I took this dark brown (almost black) shade into the deepest parts of the crease to add a little bit of drama and more depth. I then smoked it out with my MAC 217.
Barry M Dazzle Dust – Tan
I talk about these all the time, normally I apply similarly to a normal shadow, on a fluffy brush with painterly motions. This however was applied with a flat shadow brush and I patted it on. This way I got more product and more of a metallic finish all over the lid.
MAC Fluidline – Blacktrack
Two Faced – Better than Sex Mascara
Bold, dramatic, black lashes tops of the eyes nicely.
On my lips:
