THE BEAUTY SCREEN: BIRTHDAY EDIT

7 July 2015

As my birthday today creeps up on me the moment I open my eyes, reminding me that I'm already a year older. Knowing that I would be kept busy today by celebrating, I also have prepared this post to achieve my birthday look.

As I would of course, want to achieve the look to maintain the long-lasting and natural look, these are the products perfect for the all-night-out girl.

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation
This foundation has been one of the first few products that I will always reach out for as it gives the skin a natural glow, while also providing medium to full coverage. With a strong lasting power, the foundation lasted all-day-all-night without even gliding off like so many other liquid foundations do. Boom.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat
To achieve the look of perfect glow without ever showing your dark circles and eyebags, Touche Éclat is there for all your under-eye-bag problems! Fret not, with this highlighting concealer your eyebags will disappear in no time. While it's perfect for concealing eyebags, it's also known for its use of highlighting the cheekbones as well as the brow bones.

MAC Studio Finish Concealer Duo
While the Touche Éclat is meant for achieving the glow, it wouldn't cover any blemishes. But this concealer is the perfect product to cover even the nastiest of blemishes. Its thick texture and perfect pigment would do the perfect job for covering up your ugly twins.

CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder SPF 15/PA +++
Setting up the face makeup is crucial for a long-lasting effect as well as keeping oil shine at bay, while the skin maintains a perfect glow. With the perfect ingredients made to protect the skin, the sheer powder can be worn under or over makeup.

MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set
Eyebrows are one of the key features to achieving the perfect look; if there is one brow product I can only use, this will be the only option I'll ever opt for. Pigmented, amazing lasting power, even waterproof - these are the requirements that match my criteria.

Sephora Collection Colorful Shadow & Liner in 04 Taupe [similar on: CHANEL (here), MUFE ME-50 (here)]
Many makeup brands have done amazing jobs at creating eyeshadow sticks as well as liners, I chose to invest in Sephora's. It's a waterproof eyeshadow and doesn't even budge at all. I only wear eyeshadows occasionally and of course, today is a special and big day for me, this is the product I only reach out for for the eye-brightening as well as occasional heavier look.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper
You have to love Kat Von D. I praise Stila for making one of the best eyeliners that I have been talking about all year (or more) long, but sometimes I do like to look for other brands that can give me the requirements that I need [waterproof, thick textured, super lasting power]. This eyeliner is perfect for the perfect cat-eye flick that you need.

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
Need I say more? Eyelash curlers are necessary to create the perfect curl for your lashes and I find only the one from Shu Uemura works, though I have not tried enough from NARS etc.. This eyelash curler is perfect too for those who have Asian eyes.

Clinique High Lengths Mascara
I love mascaras that are lengthening as well as having them being waterproof; although this one is not waterproof but I do admire the lengthening property as well as the eye-opening effect. It does dry up fairly quickly after coating up on the eyelashes, with a 'willow' shaped applicator it maximises the lengthening effect.

NYX Cosmetics Lush Lashes Full Figured Mascara
D'bomb. Though it does not apply to the 'lengthening' property as it says, it does complement well with the Clinique mascara to create a full volumised, lengthened and waterproof mascara. I receive compliments when I wear these two and I have not stopped for quite some time.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow 
My favourite bronzer and highlighter duo. Ever. An amazing sculpting bronzer where it suits all skintones and the highlighter that does make you look like you could say: "I woke up like this". A raved product that truly does not disappoint when it comes to sculpting and highlighting.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat
With such a beautiful texture, not to mention the stunning packaging, it gives the beautiful pop of blush despite the hefty price tag. With one swipe, the blush will make your skin look like it's meant to be there.

Sephora Collection Creamy Lip Stain in Bold Red
Apologies that I have forgotten to put this in, but what's a look without a good bold red? One of my favourite recent finds, I found myself wearing this more than I thought I would!

Givenchy Limited Edition Rêve d'Escapade Eau de Parfum
Musky, floral, beautiful. My new found love in this perfume has made me swoon whenever I get a whiff of it. I wear this religiously and it has found a special place in my heart - thanks to the tester perfume at Sephora.

Have you tried any of these?
