Birthday FOTD

Last Monday, I celebrated my **th birthday with my family. I asked my husband our plan and he said it's a surprise and the only thing he can tell me is that we'll be out the entire day. I wanted to wear something safe. I know it's summer but I didn't have time to experiment with colors on myself and risk my look on my special day haha. So I went for a little bit dark but wearable during the day (so I won't have to retouch :)). That's one problem you will have if you have a baby with you and you don't have a helper hehe. That's the reason why I always see to it that my makeup will last really long.

Here's my birthday FOTD:

Makeup used:

Benefit concealaholic (I love this so much. I blogged about this here. I use this to conceal my marks then set it with a loose powder and I don't have to wear foundation anymore) Wondeful product!
Revlon Translucent Powder
In2it Eyebrow Powder
MAC Paintpot Painterly (used as eye primer)
MAC Taupe
Paul & Joe Umbrella Woman (This is part of the recently launched Parasol collection)
The Body Shop black eyeshadow (part of the Brush with Fashion Quad)
Urban Decay Liner Lucky
Urban Decay Liner Lust
The Body Shop Cheek Tint topped with MAC Blush Mocha
Paul and Joe Lipstick in Prism

Brown eyeshadow from the Dollface palette for contouring

Here are some snaps on how I did my makeup:

I blended the black eyeshadow from The Body Shop quad to the outer corner to create a depth.

Paul and Joe Umbrella Woman eyeshadow duo. I used the darker pink color on the inner lids and the light one to highlight the browbone.

A closer shot of my eye makeup. I did this first before concealing my face.

The Body Shop Cheek Tint

I put the TBS limited edition cheek tint topped with MAC powder blush in Mocha to make my cheek color long-lasting.

After that lunch buffet, we killed time at SM Megamall because of the color coding. I did a little bit of shopping (will talk about that soon :)) and let my baby play at David's playhouse. Spent the entire afternoon literally walking haha. The only time I was able to rest was when we heard mass at 6pm.




After the mass, we drove to Makati and had dinner at Le Bistro Vert for the 2nd time haha. (More kwento on my other blog). The photo above was taken aroung 9pm. The only thing I retouched was my lipstick because that was the only makeup I brought with me. My makeup really lasted noh? And surprisingly no oilies.

Btw, I already decided to dedicate this blog for anything related to beauty only. You'll find my food, travel, parenting and life chronicles on my other blog. I'm still fixing some things up but I hope you continue to support (naxx showbiz hehe!)

I don't really like throwing a party during my birthday. Prettifying myself and being with my family is a better way for me to celebrate.
