My Birthday Makeup!


My Birthday Makeup including NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, NARS Orgasm Blusher, Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette, Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara, MAC Mehr Lipstick and MAC Soar Lip Liner.
By the time you're reading this, it will be my Birthday, wohoo! I thought I'd share with you some of the makeup picks I will be wearing today. Simon and I are going to a wildlife park, because I just can't resist cute animals and what better way to spend your Birthday, than around cute animals and ice cream (maybe I'll even get a balloon!). Then we'll be going out for a meal in the evening, so I need a look suitable for both occasions! Although I'm not going out out, I still wanted to wear some of my favourite things that I haven't for a while.

My Birthday Makeup including NARS Sheer Glow Foundation and NARS Orgasm Blusher.
Starting with my base. I've dug out my favourite high end foundation, NARS Sheer Glow. I haven't worn this for the longest time, I've been super loyal to my Rimmal Lasting Finish Foundation. But as it's my birthday, of course it's time for a perfect flawless finish. This gives a gorgeous natural glowy finish, but at the same time it's very buildable to hide all flaws - who needs flaws on their Birthday? Not me! To give me that summer rosy cheeked glow, I've opted for NARS Orgasm Blusher. This is such a handy blusher to have, it's perfect for all occasions. NARS blushers are by far my favourite, the powders are soft and pigmented, but not over powering. Orgasm is a peachy pink shade with a golden shimmer, so perfect for Summer time.

Moving onto my eye makeup, of course I've been absolutely loving the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette. This is the ultimate Summer palette due to it's golden peach shimmers and warm bronzed shades. For as long as I can remember I've pretty much stuck to a bronzed/copper eye. It's about time I switch it up, I've always been drawn to olive green shades, but never really go for them when it comes to actually applying my makeup. Today I'm going to go for Bless Her Heart, a gorgeous olive green, with a peachy golden shimmer. Too Faced have really won me over this year, I can't fault them. The formula is so beautifully creamy, their shades are always so lovely to apply. Of course the pigmentation is perfect and so soft to blend - and I can't get over the sweet peach scent! I'm undecided what shades I'll use to create my olive green eye, maybe Bellini or even Candied Peach!
To Frame my fabulous green eye, I'm using the new Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara. I'm a Lash Sensational girl thick and thin, but if you want to go that extra mile and get boss lashes, then you need to give The Big Shot ago. This gives me effortless long and full lashes to the extreme! I've always been a maybelline mascara girl and I've tried a lot of their mascaras! This one is by the one to go for if you want full and long bold lashes - perfect for Birthdays!

My Birthday Makeup including MAC Mehr Lipstick and MAC Soar Eyeliner
For lips I'm using one of my favourite nudes, MAC Mehr. Mehr is described as a dirty blue pink, I consider it more of a soft mauve pink. Mehr is one of the most flattering lipsticks I own, it compliments so many skin tones and so many different makeup looks, I think this is going to look gorgeous with my olive green eye. Mehr is a matte formula, but is definitely one of the least drying matte lipsticks I own. To line my lips, I'm using MAC's Soar - a definite staple in anyones makeup collection! Soar compliments so many lipsticks, it's by fair my most used liner. It's a mid toned pink/brown that steers either way. It's a little darker than Mehr, giving a gorgeous statement finish. I always like my liner to be a little darker to give my lips a bolder and neater look.

Hopefully a nude lip and bold lash look will see me through a day at the wildlife park and a romantic evening dinner. I'd love to know your favourite picks right now beauties and if any of you have your Birthdays coming up soon?
