Only picture I took of my makeup that night

This is the look I wore to go out for my birthday!  When I have an event coming up, I usually over- stress about what makeup to wear, and go overboard with trying too many things on my face at once.  This time however, I really love how it turned out and it was really easy.  On the night of, I was getting ready at a friend’s place and only took one photo of the makeup because we had lighting constraints, but I recreated it this week for this post.  The only difference this time is that I didn’t put on my Queen B lashes and I have a different nude lip on for these pictures. Please excuse my hair, it was thrown up in a messy bun this day.

My motto when it comes to doing event makeup

The look I was going for was very bronze, very golden, with a winged liner and lashes. I love going out of my comfort zone when I do makeup to push the limits and try new looks.  However, for this night I didn’t want to mess up or take forever.  It was more about hanging out with my friends, doing their makeup, and getting mine finished so I could go hang out with everyone!  I used the sandy/ mustard tones I have been talking about a lot lately.  Desert Sands has an almost greenish baby puke tone to the brown, so to play that up I went for Voltage by Makeup Geek (white gold/yellow/greenish duochrome) and the Urban Decay Distortion glitter to make it even more intense.
