My Birthday Makeup: Plum Eyes, Berry Lips, Peach Cheeks


Of course these photos would have turned out better had I remembered to take them right after I applied my makeup, as opposed to at the end of the night, but that's just the way it happened.
At this point my makeup wasn't looking the "freshest", but I wanted to share this look with you guys anyway, since I really loved it.


Some of the products I used to create this look were new purchases and/or gifts during my stay in the United States, and I was very pleased with how well they performed!

Here are my new, standout products...




Lorac PRO Palette 2 - There's been so much buzz about the Lorac PRO Palettes that I knew I had to try one of them. I put #2 on my beauty wish list, and my wish came true! Sixteen buttery, blend-able and beautiful colors, all in one palette! For the look I am wearing above,  I first applied "Plum" to my lids, then pressed "Cool Gray" over top, and blended both colors out.

Milani Baked Blush (in Luminoso) - I never thought much of the Milani brand, but after Miss Glamorazzi raved about this blush, I thought I'd give it a try. Honestly, it's better than I ever dreamed. The glow it gives you, and the way it transforms a dull/pale complexion is really amazing.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish 1,000 Kisses Stay-On Lip Liner Pencil  (in Indian Pink) - Months back I purchased one of these Rimmel lip pencils in Buenos Aires and have used it quite a bit. Since I liked it so much, I decided to pick up four more when I was back in the States. Whether I am just lining my lips, or filling them in completely these pencils give great definition and come in gorgeous colors!

Physician's Formula Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara - This was a product I had heard Tati (from Glam Life Guru) talk about, claiming it to be one of her favorite mascaras. With the first swipe, I knew it was good.....no, not just good, GREAT.

    1. I know! It was a fabulous birthday present to receive! I did quite a lot of beauty shopping in the US, and stocked up on things from brands we don't have here in Argentina. I think I should be good for another few months haha
      And how amazing is that Milani blush? I have to admit, I didn't have high expectations, but it's really amazing! It performs like a high-end beauty product! Do you have any other colors in Milani blushes?
