Hey guys! So last weekend I celebrated my birthday with the girls and this time I was super excited to get ready, purely because I didn’t need to rush around! I don’t know if it’s just me, but do you girls tend to separate your everyday and evening makeup?
If there’s one item of makeup that I can’t seem to live without, it’s my YSL highlighter – Touché Éclat. It does wonders for my appearance, brightens up any part of my face instantly – underneath and on top of makeup. However, I only use it on special occasions!
I always plan what I need to wear in advance, in particular the heels! As I was wearing a LBD, I felt that my shoes and eyes should stand out more than anything. So I opted for some forest green shoes with some forest type eyes, the rest I kept pretty much simple 🙂 . I don’t think I’ve actually ever played around with greens, but I forgot how well the colour compliments brown eyes!
I toned down the lips of course with my favourite MAC nude – half n half .
For my eyes I used the Sleek Ultra Matts palette with a mix of pink and white as the highlighter. I used a little smokey black just to add some dimension to the outer corner of my lids, but not too much as I didn’t want it to appear smokey!
I hope you enjoyed this post and the pictures! If you guys don’t follow me on Instagram already, make sure you do as I’m always posting the latest snaps on there first. Plus I’ll follow back to those who request, just let me know with your comments below! You can find me on @simisbeautybox 🙂
