Birthday Smokey Eyes

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another birthday look!  This is the makeup that I wore to my actual birthday dinner.  I went for a really simple but sizzling smokey eye.

I remember that the day of my birthday dinner was one of the most exhausting ever!  I had 3 wedding gigs beginning super early!  By the end of the day my eyes were so red that I thought I had pink eye! LOL I didn't luckily.  I needed a simple look to throw on for my dinner and you can't go wrong with a classic smokey eye.

You might notice the seat belt shots.  I had to take these pictures in the car while the BF was picking me up a Starbucks DoubleShot at the gas station since I was so exhausted lol.
Check out my amazing cake!  Some of you may remember me tweeting about it.  My friends created a cake based on my vision board for the year and on it they included all of my dreams that have come true...how sweet!
Here's What I Used:

FACE
Cetaphil Moisturizer
NYX Purple Primer
Palladio Herbal Liquid Concealer in Yellow
Eve Pearl Medium Salmon Concealer
Jemma Kidd concealer duo in medium
Eve Pearl HD Powder Duo in Tan
MAC Blunt Blush
MAC Pearlmatte Face Powder
Kevyn Aucoin Cestial Powder

EYES
Steelo Eyeshadow Base in Medium
NARS Mekong Shadow
Sonia Kashuk Neutral Palette - Matte Black and Matte Soft Brown
Josie Maran Pearl shadow from Eye Love You Palette
L'Oreal Art Liner
Sonia Kashuk Glamour Lashes
MAC Feline Kohl Pencil
Tarte brow pencil in medium brown

LIPS
MAC Stripdown Pencil, Brave New Bronze Lipstick and Tri Color Gloss

I hope you guys have an amazing weekend.  Today is my last day of work before I head off to vacation on Monday for a whole week.  I'll do a post before I leave though and tell you all about it.  Yippee!

Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
