birthday glam ❥

My birthday was yesterday and who doesn't want to look 
glam for their day of birth? I've had so much fun lately testing 
out new looks & makeup. I thought i would share some with y'all!

⎨in order⎬
[face]  bareMinerals primer|bb cream in {medium}
dime size \ pure brightening serum foundation bareMinerals in {bare natural}
concealer | Rimmel "Hide the Blemish" Neutralizer (you can get it at any walgreens)
 under eyes down to bottom  of the nose up to a little past your outer eye. 
Also use for any breakouts. On top of that i used Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit 
in {natural}. Blend in with a beauty blender. after eyes and blush\bronzer i lightly sprayed
[bronzer | blush] contoured with Smashbox Contour Kit | Blush MAC in {desert rose}

[eyes]   MAC Paint Pot in {painterly} all over lid. MAC {orb} up to eyebrow
MAC {espresso} in corners blended well. MAC liquid eyeliner slightly winged on top | bottom 
only go half way across.  MAC {dazzlelight} in inner corners. NYX jumbo eye pencil in {white}
on waterline\bottom. Lashes Ardell in {demi whispies} a fave of mine. Topped with Benefit They're Real Mascara 

[lips] I exfoliate my lips whenever im going to wear anything thats not babylips\a moisturizing 
balm. If i dont use Victoria Secret lip scrub, after im brushing my teeth i just gently brush
my lips for about a minute. it works i swear! Just not to rough or you  might bleed. Then i used MAC lipstick in {Pink Pearl Pop} MAC lipgloss in {Razzledazzler} on top.

make a wish & blow some glitter in the air!

Bare Skin 
Pure Brightening Serum Foundation 

I was so beyond exciting when i found out that bareMinerals was coming out
with a liquid|serum foundation! My skin was praising the heavens! My skin
is dry & always looking for a quench of hydration whenever possible. 
I do love their Original Powder foundation [ shade: Medium Beige] but 
having skin on the drier side i was a little concerned that i wasn't able to
build the coverage, you know on those days when you have more to hide then others,
without making it look cakey. 
So you can imagine my excitement when this product introduced itself to me. 
FREAKING OUT! And also wondering if it would live up to the 
expectations and holy grailness i have built up in my mind. 
And it is safe to say IT DOES! It really really does. 
Pure brightening serum is the perfect description for this product.
It is a luminous glowing dream foundation! 
Not to mention is it so good for you skin! 
This is an absolute MUST-HAVE product. 

in order what i used || all bareMineral products

[1] Prime Time BB primer-cream in {medium}
[2] pure brightening serum foundation
[3] very light layer of original foundation in {medium beige}
[4] dust Illuminating Veil everywhere

this changes everything

xoxo beauties!
