MOTD | My 20th Birthday

On Good Friday, I turned the big 20. I am now an official adult which makes me slightly terrified. I can no longer blame my silly actions on my teenage self, because that period is officially over. I don't feel like an adult, I still feel 18. Partly because overtime I go to a bar, I spend 5 minutes at the door with the security guard looking back and forth from my ID to me going "Really? Are you sure?". The struggles of a baby face. I had family over for a chilled out day and chocolate cake, so I went for an amped up everyday look.

To prime, I used the bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralising Foundation Primer which is a yellow-toned primer which is great at correcting my skin, which means I can use as little bit less foundation. I then buffed in my NARS Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc which is my one of my favourite foundations. To conceal blemishes, I used NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla and for under my eyes, the MAC Pro Longer in NW15. To set it all, I used the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light which is great at setting my makeup but not mattifying it and letting the finish of the foundation come through. The only blush I've been using at the moment is the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Nude Mauve. It gives a sheer glow to the cheeks with a subtle hint of colour, I'm obsessed!

To prime my eyelids, I used the NARS Smudge Proof Eye Primer and to neutralise the base I used the MAC Paint Pot in Painterly. I used my Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette to create my eye look. I cannot for the life of my remember what colours I used but it was something really simple. I've been loving the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Corrupt because like it's name, it glides on so smoothly. For mascara, I used my trusty Clinique High Impact Mascara and for eyebrows, I filled them in with my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Whiz in Soft Brown. For my lips I used MAC Lipstick in Mehr which a blue toned neutral pink which is slightly darker than my lips. 




  1. Happy belated Birthday! What a coincidence - my birthday was on Good Friday, too! I love the products you picked. Sheer Glow is my favorite foundation, and that MAC lipstick looks really lovely!
