Thank you so much for all of the amazing birthday tweets, Facebook messages, Instagram comments, Snapchats, and YouTube comments! You are all so amazing and your kind words mean the world to me.
Normally Alex and I spend some time in the city to celebrate my birthday but this year it wasn't in our budget. I still had an amazing day and wanted to share this get ready with me!
Of course I wanted my makeup to last all day so I started by priming my skin with Urban Decay All Nighter Spray and Covergirl Outlast Primer. I love a little luminosity to the skin so I applied a little L'oreal Liquid Lumi in Ice to the high points of my face. The foundation I went with is the Revlon Colorstay in Buff, it's full coverage and looks beautiful in photos! For concealer under the eyes I used Rimmel Lasting Perfection and for the rest of the skin I used Collection Lasting Perfection.
For the eyes I primed with Lorac Behind the Scenes Primer and Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Emerveille. I then used a mix of the Urban Dacay Naked Smoky Palette and some individual ColourPop shadows. The individual shadows from ColourPop I used were Cricket, Kathleenlights, and Birthday Girl! I then used NARS eyeliner in Via Veneto, Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara, and Kat Von D Liquid Liner. I also used some Ardell Demi 120 lashes cut in half!
As for the rest of the face I used Beauty For Real For Aerie contour stick in Coco Cabana and Physician Formula Bronze Booster. For blush I used ColourPop blush in Holiday and Mary-Lou Manizer by theBalm. I then set my face with Urban Decay All Nighter again :)
I curled my hair with my Irresistible Me Sapphire 8 in 1 Wand http://bit.ly/IM_Hair312 (use IrresistibleBrittany for a 10% discount). I used the largest barrel for soft curls with lots of volume.
I truly love this outfit and was so happy to sport this amazing pairing for my birthday. The beautiful sparkling dress is from Michael Kors and I picked it up at Nordstrom Rack last year. I paired a black shirt over the bottom part of the dress. These small black heels are from Target and I thought they were simple but helped balance with the sparkly dress. These awesome sunglasses are from Jcrew, I picked them up at the outlet mall and love them! I paired my Tiffany&Co and Rocksbox necklace together for a nice laired affected. I also mixed my Michael Kors watch with my Alex and Ani bracelets which are always a favorite.
I hope you guys love this outfit as much as I do :) I can't wait for an excuse to wear this dress again!
