FOTD: Birthday Makeup!

Hi Bellas,

Guess what? It's my birthday!  I'm taking the day off but I wanted to share my pre-birthday party makeup I wore over the weekend.  You know I had to go all out so I busted out the glitter for this look.  Check it out!

First off, don't you love the curls?  My hair stylist DanaReddVelvetHair (find her on Instagram) wand curled my hair and then when I was ready later that night, I ran my fingers through them to separate the curls and add volume.

For my makeup, I went for a coppery glitter smokey eye.  I finally got around to pulling out OCC Glitter in Beige, one of my favs!  Around it I used Mehron shadows from my Matte Neutral Palette.  

On my face I wanted full, glam coverage so I pulled out my CoverFX Total Cream Cover Foundation along with their Suntan Bronzer and Sunlight Illuminator to highlight and contour.

For the lips I wanted to go ultra nude - I used an old favorite - MAC Brave New Bronze with a super nude lipstick from Illusions Beauty.  I applied that right to the center only to give a light look but without having ghost lips lol.  Line with a bit of MAC Cork lip pencil for definition and you're good to !

Hope you all enjoyed!  I unsuccessfully tried to film a Getting Ready with Me video but I had technical difficulties including dropping glitter all over my floor, lol.  If you like this look let me know in the comments below and I'll film a tutorial!

I'm off now to celebrate my bday with my boo.  Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
