My Birthday Look

I can’t believe I didn’t snap a picture before I left the house today. I went uncharacteristically bare, opting to make the focus today my lips. I used Anastasia Hydrafull gloss in Plastic. I put on LaVanila The Healthy Face SPF 40 face cream, dusted a bit of Silk Naturals Vegan Perfecting Powder all over my face, put on tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara and tamed my brows with Anastasia’s Caramel tinted brow gel. That was it. I liked having the focus be on my lips.

When I actually go out for my birthday dinner, I’ll be wearing bright eyeshadow, but for today, this was nice.

If you’re going low key, what do you focus on?

      If I’m going nearly naked it’s Lipgloss (always must wear gloss) and mascara…I actually get compliments. Odd

        Mascara + a bright gloss = win.

      My eyes! I need to have some liner and kohl on, otherwise I look like a patient of some terminal disease! D: That’s a very yummy colour btw! ;)

      I focus on lips too. I find it easier to swipe a bright lip across my face and dash out the door. :)

      I couldn’t pull it off, but that color is amazing on you! I have huge eyes, so when I go lo key, I’ve got to have mascara if I am wearing my glasses, mascara and liner if I’m wearing contacts, otherwise I look awful–tired and worn out (which I probably am…lol). I have to have Silk Naturals’ Swing lip gloss to top off the low key look–it’s the perfect “my lips but waaaay better” color, gorgeous! I have a tube with my makeup at home, a tube in my purse and a tube in my backpack so I am never without it. :)

      I have to have mascara! I usually wear gloss so I grab whatever is closest and throw it on. I love the shade you have on. I am not brave enough though I am trying to be. I buy bright colors and they get carried everywhere in my purse… just don’t seem to make it to my lips :)

      Hope you had a great birthday! Usually when I’m going low-key, I tend to focus on my eyes. A little liner and mascara and I’m out the door!

      Wow, another Gemini! Happy Belated Birthday, Courtney.

      I focus on my lips and wear some powder on my nose/forehead, moisturizer w/ SPF30 always, and large, dark sunglasses. Can’t be without those here in Florida!
