It's February, my birth month!! I know most people hate February, but I love it. I always look forward to my birthday even though I'm no longer in my 20's ;) I also don't really mind the cold so I celebrate everyday.

I wore this super bright look on Wednesday. It so happened that Sofia had a bad night and I woke up looking like a zombie. At times like this, I beat my face to feel better. Here's the result:

And this is what I used:

For Face: Used Nars Sheer Matte (Fiji) as my foundation a dusting of Ben Nye Translucent Powder. Then I used MAC Sculpt Pro Powder to contour and MAC Prim n Proper blush (LE-rosy nude) on the apple of my cheeks.


For eyes: Used UDPP as base and then applied a layer of MAC Delft paint pot (DC - Deep teal) on the lid. I damped the brush with mixing medium and added MAC Partylicous pigment (LE - bright aqua) all over the lid. Applied Inglot Matte #372 e/s above crease, Inglot AMC #59 e/s in the inner lid and MAC Plumage e/s in the crease and on the lower lashline. Added MAC Blanc Type e/s as highlight and MAC Crest the Wave (LE- pale yellow) as tearduct brightener. I lined my eyes with Bobbi Brown Ivy Shimmer gel liner and waterline with MAC Blue Peep fliudline (LE - aqua) . I finished with two coats of L'Oreal Voluminous Dramatic Lashes mascara.

For lips: kept it soft and pink with a layer of Chanel Imperial Rouge Allure Laque (DC - nude pink).

    I really like the brightness and color combination of this look! I might've gone a *teensy* bit lighter on the lower lash line, though...I feel it emphasizes the tiredness. But overall, still very pretty :) And I like the pop of pink of the lips, too!

    Wow! I need to get me some Inglot eyeshadows! So gorgeous x

  3. The Procrastinator Says:

    I LOVE your inglot palette.

  4. Shadowy Lady Says:

    Shayla - thanks! I think you're right, heavy lower lid does make me look more tired :)

    Coco - you totally should! The quality of the eyeshadows is amazing, every single one I've tried!

    The proccrasinator - thank you :) I picked up my palettes in NYC 3 years ago or so...
