Birthday Girl's Look

It was my birthday on February 26th & I thought I'd share the look that I went for. The whole look along with the hair made me feel glamourous.


For my eyeshadow, I used a mix of shimmery cream shades under the brow as the highlight. I applied a matte white in the tear duct area & the inner half of the lower lashline. I topped the matte white just in the tear duct area with a shimmery white eyeshadow. In the crease & on the outer two-thirds of the lower lashline, I applied a dark brown & blended it out. Applying the brown eyeshadow & then lots of mascara on the lower lashline gave me the big doll eyes kind of look, especially with that hair.

You can see the brown eyeshadow best in this picture:
Here's my favourite part about the look (makeup-wise): the cheeks! I used Annabelle Cosmetics' mineral bronzer in Terra, Laura Geller's Blush-N-Brighten in Roseberry, & a highlight right above the blush.

I'm going to try remembering to use a highlight on my cheekbones because it really does make the biggest difference & you can notice it in pictures too. For my lips I used a pink gloss that had almost worn off by this point since I took these pictures late at night. I usually ignore my lips in makeup looks & would have been okay with just wearing rose salve too though.

What part of your face do you spend the most & the least time on?

Lately I've been spending more time on my face since I've started wearing liquid foundation now, so I actually have to put effort in to it because I'm always afraid that I won't blend it in properly, especially on the sides of my face & neck area. I then create those natural "shadows" on my face back again with the help of a bronzer since using liquid foundation almost erases those.
I've always spent the least amount of time on my lips. As long as I have my rose salve or lip balm, I'll be fine.

I'd love to know your answer to the question so leave a comment below.

HAPPPPYYYYYY BELATED MY DARLING!!!! Hope you enjoyed yourself to the fullest!!! You are so beautiful and your makeup is impeccable :)) to answer your question, I definitely spend the longest time on my eyes, I love to get the perfect liner look and apply my lashes, so it takes me at least 10 minutes to perfect :) like yourself, I tend to ignore my lips, leaving it for last :)
