My Birthday Makeup Look!

Hi friends! Today I thought I would share with you the makeup that I wore yesterday for my birthday!

Let’s Get Started!

Nip + Fab Plumping Serum, Hard Candy Color Correcting Primer, Maybelline Master Primer 100, Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Cool Bone

The base of the face stays the same for the most part. On days that I shower in the morning before work, I use the Nip+Fab Plumping Serum after to help hydrate my skin. I received this item in an iPsy or Boxycharm and have continued to repurchase it.

I use a small amount of the Hard Candy primer on the areas where I have the most redness (my t-zone and on the inwards of my cheeks), and then I use the Maybelline primer all over my face.

I could not use any other foundation than the Estee Lauder one as it is my favourite and I wanted my skin to look fabulous on my birthday!

Eyebrow pencil, L’Oreal brow gel, Rimmel London Lasting Finish Concealer, Maybelline Fit Me Loose and Pressed Powders

I had to get a new concealer so I’ve picked up the Rimmel London Lasting Finish concealer. I set my face with the pressed powder from Maybelline, and then I baked my under eyes with the loose powder from Maybelline. While I bake, I filled in my brows with a pencil I received in a Boxycharm and then used the L’Oreal brow gel to smooth them over and make them last all day.

Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer, Pretty Vulgar highlighter, Tarte Amazonian clay blush in Paaaarty

I used my all-time favourite butter bronzer to bronze my cheeks, chin and forehead up. I added some colour to my cheeks with the Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Paaarty, and then since I was keeping it neutral on the eyes, I went with a rosy champagne highlight from Pretty Vulgar.

Tarte Tarteist Pro Palette, Colourpop Yes Please Palette

To create on of my favourite eye looks ever, I use the Tarteist Pro Palette and then just one colour from the Yes Please palette.

I start off by using Chic in the crease with a big fluffy brush as my original transition shade. I then take a mix of Indie and Profesh on the same brush and start sweeping that into the crease to create a more cooler toned look. Next, I use a smaller blending brush and take Edgy on it and start slowly adding it to my outer corner and into the crease. Finally, I slowly added a little bit of Punk to deepen the outer corner. I take a little bit of Classic and Vintage and pack that onto the lid and under the brow bone. I smoke out my lower lash line with a bit of Indie and Edgy.

To spice up my look a bit, I take that bright yellow shade from the Yes Please palette and pop that into my inner corner. I curl my eyelashes, add my Essence Lash Princess mascara and Voila! all finished!

I hope you enjoyed this look! Have a great day!

Maybe, Maybe Not | New Makeup Releases

Hello Friends! Today I bring you a new series about new makeup releases and if I’m thinking about purchasing them or just straight up passing on it.

Let’s get started!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette

For my next eyeshadow purchase I want to be inspired, and although this is a beautiful palette, it does not call out to me. I actually only own one ABH palette and it’s Subculture because every time I open it, I get excited to try something different. If the Vault didn’t cost so much, I would actually pick it up so that I could own the Prism palette too, but I don’t need that many more eyeshadow palettes in my collection that quickly.

E.L.F. x JKissa collab

I enjoy watching JKissa’s content on YouTube. I think she creates interesting and educational content. But again, this does not inspire me. Although it’s inexpensive, I do not want to spend my money on products I know I’m not going to use.

BH Cosmetics x Daisy Marquez palette

Now this palette inspires me! There’s something about the tones in this palette that has it calling my name. It’s not just your typical warm palette with a pop or two of colour. It has some cool tones, there’s a couple grundgy purple and gray shades. I don’t actually know who Daisy Marquez is, but I am thinking of purchasing this palette. I might wait until the end of the month to pick it up, but it’s the palette I’m most excited about lately.

Colourpop x Zoella Collab

I know there’s a lot of controversy surrounding Zoella lately, and I know a lot of consumers are not going to purchase this collection because of that. But I just am not interested in it because it looks boring; the eyeshadow palette especially. The packaging is super cute but again I just cannot spend my money on items I won’t use.

So Juicy Plumping Lip Gloss from Colourpop

Now, surprisingly, I am interested in these plumping lip glosses. Even though I love lipstick and liquid lips, I have barely worn what I have and have been instead reaching for hydrating lip balms or glosses. I don’t know what it is about these but they’ve really caught my eye and I think would be super cute to wear during the summer months especially that coral shade. I’ll definitely be adding a shade or two of these to my next purchase from Colourpop.

That’s all I’m going to discuss today! What new releases are you looking to purchase or to pass up?
