Birthday FOTD

Greetings! Long time no blog and I won't waste both our times with excuses so onwards we go....

 It was my birthday last Friday and I really wasn't in the mood to do anything at all but my very lovely friends dragged me out to dinner and a good time was had by all. I kept my eye makeup pretty simple so I decided to jazz it up with a red lipstick.

Mat Velvet+ matifying foundation in #75 Coffee (Make Up For Ever)
Pro Longwear concealer in NW40 (MAC)
Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder in "Dark" (under eyes) and "Dark Deep" (whole face) (MAC)
"Coral" blush (Sleek)

Lids- Color Tattoo in "Bad to the bronze" (Maybelline)
Crease- "Galapagos" eyeshadow (NARS)
HIghlight- "Ricepaper" (MAC)
Eyeliner- Waterproof velvet touch eyeliner in 'black ink" (GOSH)
Supercurl curling mascara (Urban Decay)
False half lashes (Ardell)

Lips"Chestnut" lipliner (MAC)Lipstick in "Shade 1" (MUA

I bought this MUA lipstick about 2 years ago but I only remembered I had it last week (shame on me). I wanted something different from my usual matte, red lipstick and this could not be better. It glides on ridiculously smoothly and it's insanely pigmented. It also does a fantastic job of staying put. It survived a three-course meal and drinks with only one touch-up so it's a definite keeper.

Thank you so much to everybody who wished me a happy birthday. It was very much appreciated.

 Until next time,
