Twenty Six

I wanted to do a more “meaningful” entry for my 26th birthday post — but it has come to this instead, a birthday FOTD, surprise surprise. I initially thought of writing about “26 Decisions That Made Me Who I Am Today” but good Lord, just halfway through listing all them down, I was like, “How the hell do I craft this post so anyone reading it won’t fall asleep by the end!?” Ha ha!
For now, I’ll leave you with my ‘birthday makeup’ which I only ruined completely, by the way, when I bawled my eyes out later that afternoon (I was gifted my period on the same day so yay, hormones and emotions for lunch!). At least I was able to test the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill waterproof mascara’s claims. Have to say — it withstood the ocean of tears without running, smearing or smudging!!

The Look
Products Used: Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick Tom Ford Cognac Sable Tom Ford Crimson Noir MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural MAC Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone Giorgio Armani ETK Mascara
What? Is this true? Is Tom Ford Crimson Noir really making an appearance on this blog (and my face!?)? I officially dub it my ‘daytime red’ – as Lipstick Queen Entourage is ‘too much for the day‘, the husband says. I did bring it with me though and slapped it on immediately after the sun set. I was supposed to go for Tom Ford Orchid Haze as it’s one of my favorite palettes of all time but I felt like giving some lovin’ to an overlooked palette in my stash, Cognac Sable.
I wanted a FULL ON GLOOOHW with a hint of warmth so I whipped out the Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick. For base, I applied my favorite mattifying primer — the MAC Skin Refined Zone Treatment — on my t-zone and cheeks first, the Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach on my undereyes and finally the Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in Warm Beige all over. To finish up, I used the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. I probably should have used a makeup setting spray (that makes everything waterproof!) had I known I’ll be overcome with a wave of emotions later on that day, LOL.
For all those who sent in their birthday greetings, thank you so much, you guys!

      Thanks for the greeting, Jenn! And yes, it wasn’t anything too bad – just had a surge of hormones that made me emotional. LOL. How old are you if I may ask? Dont wanna be rude! I thought we were around the same age, around 24-25??? 😉 Refuse to believe I’m 26 LOL
