Golden Glam Birthday Makeup



Golden Glam Birthday MakeupGuys! Tomorrow is my Birthday as of when I'm posting this!
Honestly, I’ve been struggling with my self-confidence lately. I don’t know if it’s my upcoming 28th Birthday or if it’s from being sick. I just know I want to beat this feeling, so I’m going to play in some makeup and try out looks to wear for my birthday. On Cinco de Mayo I’ll be 28 years old. I definitely don’t feel as old as I am. The fact of the matter is, I’m almost 30 and I’m going to start having fun with makeup and trying new things! For once I'm going to start with my base makeup using some of my favorite items. All my makeup is drugstore cosmetics or from Ulta. I’m going to format this post a little different and list my products in order along with the photos of my process.

Golden Glam Birthday MakeupThe Base:
Nicel Daily Repair; Vitamin A & Retinol.
Cover Girl's 3in1 foundation shade 810 Classic Ivory
Ulta Full Coverage Waterproof Concealer
Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder in Neutral Natural
Avon Blush in Classic Aura
Wet n Wild Contouring and Highlight palette
A self-made Highlighter that’s a soft pink
Elf setting Spray

To start my base I applied my face cream and let it soak in for a few minutes. To apply my foundation I used a basic foundation brush. It left streaks really bad so I smoother it out with my hands and blended it down my neck. Since the foundation brush wasn’t cutting it, I used my hands to pay in my concealer too. I should add in the fact that my makeup sponge randomly molded. So I have to get a new one. So set everything I pressed in my powder with a big fluffy brush. Pressing in powders helps it look less cakey. I used the lighter powder in the contour compact to lighten under my eyes a bit more, then contoured with the contour shade. After applying my highlight to my cheek bones, temple and cupids bow, I set everything liberally and let it dry before moving onto my eyes!

The Eyes & Lips:
Hard Candy Eyeshadow Primer
The Ulta Be Discovered 67 piece Collection (Eye Shadows)
1. All over shade, Silk
2. Transition, Gentle & Camel
3. Lid shade, Fabulous
4. Crease,Thoughtful
Broadway Colors Lengthening Mascara – Black
Broadway Beauty Eyebrow pencil – Black / Brown
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof – Sparkling Black
J Cat Beauty Lipfinity Matte Liquid Lipstick – Champagne Pop

I applied my trusty primer by hard candy, and set my lids all over with shade 1. To add some definition to my crease I use the two shades I have listed as 2. After I blended and softened everything out, going back in a little at a time, I added the lid shade (3) packing it on and blending it up to the crease. To add further definition to my crease I added in shade 4 a little at a time. After that the Gold color wasn't bold enough so i picked more up, misted my brush with setting spray and packed more on. I hardly had to use any of it since it's so soft and pigmented. To finish off my eyes I threw on some mascara, filled in and combed out my brows, lined / tight lined my water line and did a small half wing. To finish everything off I put on my favorite lippie!
I hope you guys enjoyed this look. I know I love it!
Xoxo,
Lulu.
