Hello my beauties, how are you all doing?

So a few weeks ago, Sunday the 21st of February to be precise, marked the day that I turned 26. I’m still mentally processing that I can no longer say I’m in my “early-twenties” (boo) but that aside I had a lovely day and wanted to share my make-up of the day with all of you.

This year I decided I didn’t want to do anything big so my boyfriend took me out for a lovely dinner at Asia de Cuba in Covent Garden. This is such a pretty restaurant, I love the decor and it was the perfect setting for a romantic birthday dinner. Also the food being a fusion of my favourite cuisines, Asian and Latin American, was absolutely delicious! We didn’t even finish all four courses as there was SO.MUCH.FOOD and that’s coming from two massive eaters.

Now moving onto my face. I wore a rust coloured blouse which I found in Primark for just a tenner! I love wearing this shade as it really brings out my skin tone. To compliment it I wanted to do a dramatic gold smokey eye with glowing skin and a neutral lip. Here’s what I used…

Base:

  • Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow all over the face
  • MAC Prep + Prime (Peach Lustre) to colour correct
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear (4N2) and MAC Studio Sculpt (NC44) combined for foundation
  • MAC Pro-Longwear concealer (NW35) and Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer (Medium Dark Warm)
  • Ben Nye Poudre Compact (Banana) to set under eyes
  • Nars Pressed Powder (Mountain) to set all over face

Eyes:

  • Shu Umura Eyelash Curlers
  • MAC 24/7 Extend Eyebase as primer
  • MAC ‘Rule’ in crease. MAC ‘Embark’ on outer V. MAC ‘Carbon’ to deepen outer V
  • Barry M dazzle dust on eyelid (Bronze)
  • Girls Aloud Lashes By Eylure Kimberley
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner (Perversion)
  • L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes So Couture Mascara
  • Anastasia DipBrow pomade (Ash Brown)
  • Sleek Brow Perfector (Dark Brown)

Cheeks:

  • Bahama Mama to contour
  • MAC Mineralise Skin Finish (Gold Deposit) all over cheeks
  • MAC ‘Peaches’ blush on apples of cheeks
  • Mary LouManizer as highlight

Lips:

  • MAC Lip Erase to neutralise lips
  • MAC Mocha lipstick

To finish:

  • Mac Fix +

So what do you think of my look? Comment below and let me know and until next time…

      1. Hmm that is strange because it’s a very universal shade. Maybe it’s the brush you’re using, I use the Real Techniques Setting Brush which I’ve found best for powder highlight x
