Gold, Purple & Emerald Birthday Party Makeup + Tutorial

30 comments:
 
With my life being a bit busier in the past year or so, I've had fewer and fewer occasions for sitting at home and doing makeup looks just for fun. Nowadays, the only time I really get to sit down and play with my stash is when I have an event to go to like a birthday, party, or a dinner. This presents a small problem because the old me that did makeup just for fun wants to seize the opportunity as a chance for crazy, colorful, fun, makeup playtime. But then after I get all painted I realize that I do in fact have to leave the house, and needless to say you can feel a little overdone if you're rocking rhinestones & sparkles on your eyes when everyone else wearing 'regular' makeup. Sooooo, I try to tone it down a bit when I'm going out with friends but it's almost impossible for me to subdue my lust for all things colorful. You can't keep a good woman down! So, this look was my best attempt at doing something semi wearable that also lets you have a little fun with color. Take a look!

So, there it is. My version of 'understated, wearable' party makeup. Yup.




So, this was my original face chart that I drafted up before I got ready for Saturday night's party (Yes, this is something I do in my everyday life. I have intense planning sessions every time I get ready to go out somewhere that start at least a week in advance. And that now also apparently include face charts. I have a problem. I am not working on it.) So, this was the look I did but as I was rushing out the door I had no time for pictures so the ones of my eye above are actually a recreation I did a few days later. Unfortunately I didn't have time to recreate the whole look but the eyes are what count the most anyways. So that's why I included the chart, so you could see the full vision.






So, as is the theme with this post so far, I didn't actually get any decent pictures of what I wore because I was too busy being fabulous. The above image is the closest recreation I could come up with. Teal and gold are a slick, chic, sophisticated color combo for winter wear (I think), and it also complemented the eye makeup without being too matchy-matchy. Here is the only photo proof I could find of my outfit. The tiny top hat I found at the party. It started out as a joke but quickly became my favorite part of the outfit. I fought a man for it.


And there you have it. Everything you never wanted to know about my going out/getting ready process. I'm going out again this Saturday too actually ... shit, I better start planning!

  12. Great makeup, I love that you included a face chart! I am like you, if I know I am going out on the weekend, I am thinking the whole week about makeup/clothes/shoes/etc. and exactly how I am going to wear them all together! Otherwise, I just freak out before I go out because I can't think of what to do with myself, lol!
