Hi everyone! It’s Alyson, from Beauty Vanity and I’ll be guest blogging today while Becky is on vacay. Since Becky and I are both celebrating our birthdays this month, I thought I’d create a look that was very birthday girl appropriate.
For my base, I used the Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation with the Bobbi Brown Corrector and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer under my eyes. I like to whack on the bronzer on a night out and here I’m using my favorite at the moment, the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer (it smells sooo yummy). I applied the bronzer all over my face, really concentrating on my cheeks to create some hollows. Since my lips and eyes were on the bolder side, I skipped out on the blush.
For my eyes, I used the Mally Evercolor Shadow Stick in Topaz (omg does not budge!) as my base all over the lid and packed on Garnet from the LORAC PRO Palette. I blended everything with the Taupe shade and under my brow bone, I used Cream to really define and highlight my brows. I smudged Garnet into my lower lash line and used Champagne as my inner tear duct highlight. I winged out my eyeliner and gently placed the Make Up For Ever Diamond Powder in #15 on the center of my lids for that extra birthday sparkle. Next, I used my favorite falsies to complete the entire eye look.
Lastly, I used the Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencil in #16C since it has amazing staying power and the Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Fuchsia over the top.
I know this look is a bit dramatic, but a special occasion always calls for special makeup! If any of you recreate this look, tweet me on Twitter - I’d love to see! :)
