I hope you all have been holding up during these crazy times. I definitely didn’t expect to be stuck in quarantine on my birthday, and it’s been a bit hard accepting that, but I decided instead of moping around wishing I had different plans, I would make use of this “free time” and still get glammed up for my day.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, today is my 22nd birthday which is so crazy to me! I know 22 is not old by any means but the fact that I am clearly an adult now, is just frightening…you know?
Anyways, like I said above, I figured doing my makeup today would be the best way to get out of this mental rut quarantine has had me in, so if you’d like to see the details on this look right here, keep on scrolling or if you’d prefer to watch a video of this look I filmed it for my youtube channel that you can watch here(link)
For this look I’m going to be using my BH Cosmetics Ultimate Neutrals Palette
Starting with this warm, orange toned shadow, (3rd shade in the second row) I’m just going to grab this with a fluffy brush and apply it to my crease as a transition shade.
Then, on another fluffy brush, I’m grabbing this rustic shade (fifth shade in the top row) and I’m also going to apply this to my crease.
With that same brush, I’m grabbing this slightly deeper rustic shadow (6th shade in the top row) and I’m blending that over the last shade to deepen the look.
With a slightly smaller fluffy brush, I’m dipping into this deep maroon shadow, (7th shade in the top row) and focusing this on the outer corner of my eye, blending lightly into the crease.
Next, grabbing a flat shadow brush, I’m going to take this really pretty gold, metallic shadow (4th shade in the third row) and I’m packing this onto my lid, focusing mainly on the inner third of my eye.
Now with an angled brush, I’m taking this matte brown shade and applying this to my outer v, dragging upward slightly to mimic a winged eyeliner.
Once you’ve applied this with the angled brush, you’re going to want to grab a fluffy brush and blend out any harsh lines.
After that, I realized that the look just wasn’t standing out as much as I would’ve liked it to, so to darken the look and add a little more depth, I grabbed my Morphe X James Charles palette and with the shade spooky and with an angled brush I’m adding that to my outer v as well, and again mimicking a winged liner shape, before blending it all out with fluffy brush to give it a nice, smokey effect.
I decided to add a subtle pop of color, so I grabbed a small shadow brush and dipped into the shade playground, applying it to my waterline.
Grabbing that angled brush again, I’m going back into that deep maroon shade we used earlier in the Ultimate Neutrals palette and I’m blending that along my lower lash line. To add even more depth, and elongate the eye, I’m going to take that dark brown we used earlier to and apply it to my lower lash line as well, focusing it only on the outer third of the lash line.
Then just grabbing a black pencil liner I’m going to tight line my eye, before grabbing my Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and drawing a very thin line across my upper lash line.
For lashes, I’m using my favorite Ardell Demi Wispies and popping those on, blending them with my natural lashes with just a bit of mascara.
For lips I’m using three of my favorite product to get that perfect nude/pink look.
Starting with liner, I’m using this BH cosmetics waterproof lip liner in the color Muse. For Lipstick, I’m using my Tarte color splash lipstick in the shade Beach Babe. This is my absolute favorite nude lipstick, I’m obsessed!
To finish off the lips, I’m using another favorite of mine. The SU Cosmetics ‘Juliana’ gloss that I had the privilege of working with SU to create!
It’s such a gorgeous pink/nude gloss that compliments such a wide variety of skin tones, not to mention it applies smoothly and smells amazing! If you’re interested in buying one, you can DM me on Instagram for all the details!
And that is the finished look!
