It’s My Birthday, and I’ll Shop if I Want to!!!!

Any other birthday beauties out there? Don’t worry. Even if today is your “unbirthday,” you can still get ready with me for my mine …

THE COMPLETE LOOK

The inspiration for my birthday look was the bold colors of the seventies!My Birthday 2013 #1

MY BIRTHDAY ENSEMBLE

I decided to wear dark denim skinny jeans (not pictured) with a coral rosette tank (a previous birthday gift). I added a colorful shrug from Lane Bryant that gives a modern grown-up nod to the tie-dye of yesteryear.

MY MAKEUP

I wanted an overall neutral look with a pop of color. I used corals and fuschias on my lids and blended it out so that all the colors created a “sunset at dusk” effect. Then, I added a navy liner and lightly softened it with a champagne-colored eyeshadow for a bold but daytime-friendly look.

MY HAIR STORY

I styled my hair in a super-quick wash ‘n go. I lightly misted my hair with water, gently raked some EcoStyler Argan gel through my strands to make my curls “pop,” added a large brown upzing, and called it a day!
