Special Occasion Makeup

Friday Flash - Episode 6


Happy weekend! My husband's birthday and my birthday are about two weeks apart, so I wanted to create a soft-but-sexy, punched-up natural look for our birthday dinners out.


What I used:

On face: custom foundation/contour/highlight

Lips: NYX Cosmetics Lip and Eyebrow pencil in Taupe and Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer (discontinued, sorry!)

On eyes: For my base I started with Urban Decay Foxy.  Next, I put Galapagos by Nars in the crease using a MAC 217 brush, then I blended out that color with the Mac 224 brush using Malt, also by MAC.  I smudged Costa Riche eye pencil by MAC into my top lash line, then used MAC pigment in Gold Mode to brighten up my lid. Finally I curled my lashes and used one coat of Maybelline Falsies mascara in blackest black, then applied three trio lash clusters by Kiss INV on the part of my lash line directly under the arch of my brow.
