birthday makeup look

This post is all about the products used for to create the
 Makeup Look for my Birthday!
Below are scrolling widgets that you can use to see exactly what products I put on for my face, eyes, and lips! Just hoover over each product for more details. 

I first applied this Neutrogena moisturizer to my clean face (after washing my face with this product in the shower). I let that sink into my skin for 10 minutes before moving onto my new Hourglass Mineral Veil primer ($18 from Sephora). I purchased this when we were at the mall on Friday! I saw the smaller, cheaper version of this product and new I wanted to test it out. The product is a light milky white color and a little goes a long way to minimize pores and help reduce redness! I applied my new Body Shop BB cream because I love how this smells and feels on my face! It is lightweight so I added my Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation on top. The under eye concealer I used is my favorite Maybelline one and on areas I needed extra coverage I used my NARS Creamy Concealer in Vanilla. For blush I wore this Benefit one and some Hoola bronzer. As a finishing touch, I applied my new Maybelline Fit Me translucent powder to diminish the shine on my face.

I primed my eyes using one of my favorite drugstore primers, the Revlon Photo Ready , and put on my Maybelline Pumped Up Lashes mascara. The Naked 2 Basics palette has been put to good use these past few months since I got it for Christmas. I love the matte colors and how easy it is to build up your eye look with only 2-3 colors!

I wanted a natural, neutral look for my lips. I first appled this Wet n Wild light pink nude lipstick. Net I filled in my lips with this Milani lip liner in a matte nude color. Jessica gave me a Bareminerals kit that include a gorgeous lip gloss which I used to add some shimmer to my overall look!
