My Birthday Face Of The Day!

If you follow me on twitter you would have seen my random posts about my birthday celebrations this weekend. In case you missed it I wanted to show you my birthday look :)



Here's the breakdown ;)

Face:
  • Cargo's blu_ray mattifier
  • Face Atelier's pro foundation in #6
  • Face Atelier's Zero Minus to contour
  • Mac's Mineralized Skin Finish Powder in Medium Dark
  • Mac's bronzer/blush in Other Worldly
Eyes:
  • NYX's Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Black Bean as a base
  • Mac's Eyeshadow in Knight Divine
  • Mac's Eyeshadow in Shroom
  • Annabelle's Liner in Black
  • Covergirl Lashblast Mascara in Very Black
  • Ardell "Demi" Lashes
Lips:
  • Mac's Lipstick in Angel
I wanted to be dramatic without being overdone and I really liked how it came out ;)

When I posted a pic in twitter before I went out I got a lot of comments about my hair asking if I had it done or what I used so I thought I'd mention that I did it myself and although it takes a bit of time its worth it for me because these curls generally last me the whole weekend!

First I use TRESemmé's Heat Tamer Protective Spray on my damp hair and then flip my head over and blow dry running a big paddle brush over it to create volume. When my hair is about 70% dry I flip my head back and use a big round brush to smooth out the tops. Keep in mind your hair doesn't have to be perfectly straight throughout because you will be curling it however the roots should not have any kinks.

Once hair is dry I use a 1" (believe it or not) ceramic curling iron by Jilbere de Paris that I got at Sally's Beauty Supply. I section off my hair and start and the bottom section. I take approx 1" thick pieces and wrap them around the iron so they curl away from my face and once released from the iron I spray the section with Tres Two Ultra Fine Mist Hair Spray 4+4 By TRESemme that I also picked up from Sally's. Repeat this all over and then let the next section down and do the same thing. I like to work in small sections and take my time that way things look nicer. Once I get to the top I figure out if I want a middle or side part and curl accordingly away from the face. When its all done you can spray it with some spray shine or just leave it which is what I do and VOILA!!

I hope this helped with some of the questions and thank you SO much for all the beautiful wishes I had a great weekend :)

Wow, what a stunning look! the silver really makes your eyes POP!

Very beautiful, I have been eyeing off knight divine for a while as I'm not sure it will work with my skintone, but I think I'll have to try it out next time I'm at a counter.

Hope you had a great birthday!
